    ★★★

    Have a feeling those crystal trees and the tin foil humanoid are gonna look like hell in a few years. That's a bummer. 

    Bear creature ranks top 5 nightmare fuels I've ever seen.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Oooh I get it! This is a prequel to Noah!

    I tried so hard to look past the heavy handed biblical (ahem, Tora) allegory because I genuinely enjoy Mr. Aronofsky. Second half pretended it was gonna get us there. And then they ate a baby.

    ★★★½

    Gorgeous film. Had to "release my brain" from getting hung up on numerous plot holes. Wonderfully creative story. Visually stunning. Hella long.

    ★★

    Was so hard not to justify all the holes and shortcomings of this movie simply because I _wanted_ it to be wonderful. As much as I wanted to love Die Antwoord, they just fell flat for me (although, not quite as flat as the execution of the majority of the story). It was visually gorgeous and the _good_ things about Chappie himself were just tremendous. So much in here that was done remarkably well. That's what kept it moving for me. Sadly, there's plenty in here to keep it from being great.
