    I enjoyed the time period and the subject matter the movie covered. The rise of Christian fanaticism and the loss of appreciation for science/philosophy.

    I think the movie does a good job at inciting frustration amongst the audience on the pointlessness of the religious conflicts between the Pagans, Jews, and Christians while having us appreciate the scientific curiosity that was being lost and portrayed by the movie through Hypatia.

    I’ve always been interested in ancient history and of the philosophers…

    Easily one of the most disappointing films I have ever seen. After finishing season two, a prequel was not something I wanted.

    I feel like the movie contradicted points that were in the show. I thought Donna had no inkling of Laura's secret life but there she is in Canada stripping naked in front of Laura making out with some john. I thought Donna had found out about Laura's secret life through the journals and through the secret tape recording…

    I thought the movie was well paced, acting was superb. I love the plot and the mysteriousness of the monster. It’s always so much better when the monster is vague and has no form or shape.

    I also think this movie pulled off the flash backs very well by incorporating elements from them to the present or vise versa. 

    All in all great film, I enjoyed it!

    ★★★★½

    As the “Layman Movie Goer” I absolutely loved this film. I liked the tone the movie went for, the cartooniness of the characters, and the atmosphere of the world. 

    I know some have brought up that the romance/chemistry between Korben and Lelu wasn’t good; and my response to that is,”who cares”. Their romance was not a plot driver and could easily be ignored for the the better aspects of the movie.

    I also want to mention that again, not many…
