    ★★★★½

    After ruminating on this one awhile, the ending bothers me much less and the rest of the film only gets better...

    ★★★★

    Somehow both inspiring and tragic. Ultimately, my own ignorance of not knowing that this was based on a real person was a revelation by the movie's end. There is a lot going on in this one and I think the ramifications of the relationship will make for excellent conversation.

    ★★★★

    Maybe it just caught me on the right night or maybe I just haven't gotten a lot of sleep lately so I was loopy, but this film hit all the right notes for me. The comedy was clever and given time and it came across as more thoughtful than many of the comedies I have seen lately.

    I was cry laughing at one point. Jesse Plemons just keeps impressing me.

    ★★★

    Yeah, it's not a great movie if you stop and think about it, but considering some of the negative critical consensus, I didn't expect to be as thoroughly entertained as I was for the entire duration of this film. Jupiter Ascending isn't an example of some of the conceptually deep sci-fi we have loved over the past few years, but it is a lot of the low-explanation sci-fi fun that genre fans can enjoy.
