Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending is a 2015 space opera, an American/Australian production directed by The Wachowskis and starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, the great Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Terry Gilliam. This film is a delight! A couple of hours of great, playful fun, and the most gorgeous space ships you'll ever want to see. If you'd like deep philosophy or intricate plotting and character development then move on along. But I'll be keeping this one around to watch again.


Moria says, "Of all The Wachowskis’ films to date, Jupiter Ascending ranks as the most unpretentiously enjoyable, the least concerned with the epic meaning of it all and just a determination to create a rollicking good adventure." The Mary Sue loved every second and says, "Jupiter Ascending Is The Worst Movie Ever Go See It Immediately."

io9 opens with this:
Jupiter Ascending has some of the most stunning visuals we've ever seen in a space opera. The movie's spaceships are just stunning, and unlike anything else in movies or elsewhere.

Roger Ebert's site gives it 2 stars. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 26%, and I can't believe they could watch the same film I did and score it this low..


  1. Never heard of it. For the moment, I am happily planning to go see Star Wars the second time, I need no other film for a while! ;-)

    1. Isn't it fun?! I also enjoyed it, though I watch a movie of some sort almost every day lol
