Movie Review Flashback: ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Is a Massive Disappointment

One of the movies I was most excited to see but ended up missing this year was Alita: Battle Angel. For a couple of years now I have been seeing the teaser trailers and they have all excited me to the point where this was one of those films I really, really wanted to see. And to hear that James Cameron, the man behind genius cinematic creations like the first two Terminator movies and Avatar, was helping bring this story to life I had to check it out. Unfortunately, the film turned out to be way lamer than I expected.

When thinking about a movie that compares to Alita: Battle Angel I immediately am drawn to Ready Player One. Steven Spielberg, like James Cameron, is a master filmmaker and this was an interesting science-fiction story adapted from a popular YA novel to bring to the big screen. Unlike Alita: Battle Angel though, Ready Player One wasn’t disappointing.

Like Alita: Battle Angel it follows the story of a young hero trying to make his way in a near-apocalyptic future to take down a great evil. There’s romance, there are fantastic action scenes designed to make you say “Wow”  when you see it in IMAX, and the characters are just lovable enough for you to get invested in the story.

To be honest, the only reason why I finished Alita: Battle Angel is to write this review. Continue reading Movie Review Flashback: ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Is a Massive Disappointment

There’s A New Movie To Possibly Look Forward To

One of my favorite things about going to see a movie is seeing the new trailers. When I went to go see The Last Jedi most of the trailers I had seen before. And then there was this special trailer that had me engaged, interested, and kind of fascinated all at the same time. The movie is called Alita: Battle Angel and here’s the trailer for it.

One thing I love is an original science fiction movie and this movie feels unlike anything I have ever seen. When I saw this trailer I felt like I was watching a book come to life. The idea of a half-robot woman who has to save the world sounds so cool.

Another thing that makes this trailer very good is the music. The music is stellar and covers me in chills. They have some amazing actors in this film too. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the surprise movies next summer, it’s that amazing looking.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this trailer as much as I have and I thank you for reading.
