Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat, Movie Monday is back! Okay, fine. It's like a one-off thing so that I can fangirl flail, but whatever.
So a week or so ago, I roped Ness and her boyfriend into seeing Jupiter Ascending with me. I'd seen on Tumblr and heard from friends that it was essentially the worst film of ever, but that it's so bad it comes back around again and it's actually fabulous.
I was massively sceptical, let me tell you. But we got discount tickets, so what the hell, right? And I'm so glad I saw it because it. was. FABULOUS.

And yet, it's massively entertaining. The script is full of intentionally ridiculous moments that are totally hilarious ("I love dogs", for example). The cinematography is stunning. The costumes are utterly glorious. Jupiter (the character, not the planet) goes from "I hate my life" to "holy shit snacks, what the hell is happening?" to "excuse me while I bandage your bleeding chest with a feminine hygiene product" to "I'm a badass self rescuing space princess who's maybe kinda sorta in love with a dude with wolf DNA".
Have you seen it? What did you think?
