Jupiter’s ascending didn’t go quite as high as I was hoping, but the film starring her reached a decent altitude. I can’t say exactly why I didn’t love this movie… it was done by the Wachowski’s and it had a pretty nice cast. I love Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum has been a rising star lately. I also love that Sean Bean was in this (and remained relatively safe in the film). The budget and CGI also seemed really good… I just couldn’t get into the film… it was just good, not really good or incredible. Eddie Redmayne did really well as the bad guy, but he was channeling Voldemort a little too much. I also saw a lot of Star Wars-like themes that felt like they were ripped off. Some of the frenetic action scenes were some of the reasons this movie did okay by my book. Hover boots are always cool and I liked the dragon bad guys, reminded me of the Koopa’s in the Super Mario movie, except a lot cooler. The film wasn’t as big as Jupiter but not as small as Pluto… let’s say it was more like Mars in quality.
