#YES GOOD #for me this is a movie very much like jupiter ascending or pacific rim where i could not conceivably care less what reviewers think #because it’s not really? for them? #it’s made for us #it’s speaking our language! #this movie grabs you by the hand and excitedly whispers FAKE MARRIED SPIES #the same way jupiter ascending grabbed you by the hand and whispered AREA WOMAN SECRETLY AN ALIEN QUEEN #or pacific rim grabbed you by the neck and screamed A HUMANIST BALLAD OF ROBOTS PUNCHING MONSTERS #this movie succeeds by the most important measure which is letting me personally know that the universe loves me and wants me to be happy (via unstatedmartini)
“Henry Cavill needs to always play characters with names like Napoleon Solo. It suits him. In fact, he should just consider changing his name to Napoleon Solo.”
Yes to all of these! Not everything has to be Oscar Fodder. Sometimes a movie can just be… fun?
I agree, wholeheartedly. Except for Jupiter Ascending which was just a succession of one girl continually getting herself into the same situation with different members of the same family and repeatedly requiring rescue by the same person. She never saves herself. She never “ascends”. Her entire character arc is in realizing she is just rich.
I’m not entirely sure the ideas presented were cohesive or fun in any way.
