Theater viewing, with a bunch of 14-year olds. Netflix doesn’t have it yet, but in advance they predict it at 3.7 for me, the same as for the general audience.

Viewed on Netflix streaming – I gave it 4 stars. Netflix predicted a 4.2 for me, and the average rating on Netflix is 3.8. I came close to giving it a 5, though.
This was a very unusual movie, kind of an action movie, science fiction movie, and social commentary all in one. Continue reading
There are a number of movies that I’ve liked that don’t really fit into categories – sometimes they have a bit of science fiction, a bit of comedy, a bit of drama, and often just a general sense of “quirkiness” that’s hard to describe. Continue reading
