How often do you get to say you enjoyed a movie where every few minutes someone was being unceremoniously shot off screen? Definitely a dark comedy that illicits a few situationally hilarious moments, but overall just made me want to watch Armando Iannucci's VEEP even more than I already did.
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.
I feel there is so much to say when trying to cover this film...
This is one of the most inspiring movies I've ever seen and I am tragically white.
Ryan Coogler continues to write and direct some of the most (and I am stealing this descriptor from a friend) confident movies I've ever seen.
This movie is incredibly damning of the current political and social climate in America... rightfully. It further shines a giant spotlight on exactly how far…
