Jupiter Ascending 2015 Buy at amazon 1600×935

Space opera. Reminds me of Dune.

shallow, 1D characters. Fantastic special effects. Lovely. Watch for nothing but the visual effects, the alien spaceships and landscapes, the elaborate space ritual fashion haute couture costumes. Strange concocted characters.

the matrix
The Matrix The Matrix

Love Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss). Athletic, demure, calm, love lorn, good hearted. Subsequent Matrix films are crap. I despise those computer programers whose chattering red-pill blue-pill everywhere. idiots.

Logan's Run
Final Fantasy the Spirit Within 88ba0
Final Fantasy, the Spirit Within Final Fantasy, the Spirit Within

bad reviews, but i personally loved it. This movies is made entirely on computer. Sometimes in the future we'll have movies generated by computer that is indistinguishable from real-life video recordings.

Jurassic Park Buy at amazon Every character in this movie is quite quirky and fascinating.

love Emma Murdoch/Anna (Jennifer Connelly) She's so silently seductive. So meek. So radiates a ripe, mature attractiveness. She's also in: Hulk Buy at amazon , and A Beautiful Mind Buy at amazon , and Requiem For A Dream . She's beautiful in all of them. She's youngest in Labyrinth Buy at amazon

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow Buy at amazon 2014

this is like playing a video game, where, when stuck at a level, you repeat, and must from the start. You get better and better, but need to get pass that level. Secret tip: get some sleep.

Pacific Rim Buy at amazon

scifi, monster. 71%.

great brainless fun

it's funny that silly giant monsters of 1970 Japan era (Ultraman ウルトラマン) can be made into such a fun movie today. In those days, i as a child am crazy about the Ultraman. We used to collect the cards, each has a spec about a monster. You can web search image for “Ultraman monsters”.
