Jupiter Ascending… Ascending to what?

This was the movie that Superman and I went to see Friday night for a friendly reboot of our relationship; a friendly reboot that proved to me that there is something there, since we found ourselves back in a romantic situation instead of the “just friends” situation we had discussed.

But more on that later… maybe.

Normally, when I decide to discuss a movie, it is because I really really enjoyed the movie. This is not entirely the case here.

Don’t get me wrong, there were definitely things to like about the movie. The costumes, for one, were absolutely fantastic!
