Three sentence movie review: Jupiter Ascending
I found myself asking “I wonder how they did that?” often while viewing this and eventually concluded I would have better enjoyed watching a “making of” feature about this feature, rather than the feature itself. It was stuffed full of intricate detail, so it was pretty to watch, and I thank Filmspotting for putting their finger on exactly why I wasn’t interested, namely that CT drained every ounce of charisma from his character, making him boringly flat. So this goes in the category of: I watched it so you don’t have to.
Cost: $7.50 (I broke my solemn vow to only spend movie money on movies and I bought a pizza. So add another $12.00 to my total. That’s 3 or 4 movies at the Laurelhurst.)
Where watched: Baghdad Theater, which I enjoy so much as a movie theater.
