Movie Recommendation: Jupiter Ascending

I’m only about five years behind, but I finally saw¬†Jupiter Ascending, and I loved it. Yes, I’m fully aware that it’s ridiculous and what I like to call a “popcorn” movie. But it’s visually stunning, and I’m a sucker for those boots that worked like roller skates.

I also appreciated that the movie did not have the ending I anticipated. Because if you think about it in broader terms, it’s a bit of a Cinderella story in a lot of ways. But the ending is very much not the ending of Cinderella.

I’m not going to give away any more spoilers than that, but I will say if you’re looking for something on the lighter side to enjoy, and you have avoided¬†Jupiter Ascending because you thought it would be dumb, you should give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised.
