Agreed. Was thinking of taking my 11 yo daughter at some point, but having seen it I think it may be a bit much.Saw this in IMAX 3D and can forgive all of its shortcomings, as a spectacle it is pretty incredible. CGI is phenomenal, 3D is subtle and used only to give the whole experience depth, nothing gratuitous or gimmicky. Parental aside: it does push the 12A rating to its limits.
Try reading the source material. For me, this film isnt about Cameron at all but the Manga it was adapted from. Is one reason why i am scared to go and see itAs a real SF fan (particularly Camerons early stuff - Avatar not so much) why do I feel so uninterested in this film?
Sorry to sound like Marvin the Paranoid Android (slowly rusting in my corner) but the fact Cameron has passed on directing (remind anyone of the Mortal Engines situation?) and all the info so far - this review, trailers etc, just leaves me thinking this look awful and offers nothing beyond a "Theme Park 3D" experience.
Really sorry to say this not having seen the film but doesn't appeal at all. I hope I'm wrong and anyone off to the flicks has a great time with it. Personally Id seek out The Favourite instead which was surprising funny and wonderful, but don't go near it if you didn't enjoy The Lobster!
The Mule can be watched at home or on Netflix. I expect the same is true of Stan & Ollie. Alita has to be seen on the big screen (the best screen you can find).I might be off to the flicks tonight. Bottom line - is it worth a cinema visit over The Mule and Stan And Ollie, both of which I still have yet to catch?
Yeah I think regular cinemas peak output is about 48 nits, Dolby Cinemas about 106 nits, which is why when displaying 3D (presumably at 106/2 nits) it's why it doesn't look dimThis is where Dolby Vision worked. The 3D image was as bright as a 2D image in my local Everyman. I’m going to try a 2D film in Dolby Vision to see how that looks
Unlike AquamanFound this to be fairly meh, it was all too much and not enough. They crammed so much in but it all felt so insubstantial. Characters lacked weight, motives seemed to change at the drop of a hat. It all looked great of course, but it wasn’t anything that hadn’t been seen before. The young lady playing Alita had glimmers of charm, but it kinda rushed through the vulnerable part to get to the kicky, smashy stuff.
Definitely. Unless you're making a back-to-back trilogy like LOTR, the first film in a potential franchise needs to be self contained. It's the height of presumption to tell a fraction of a story when there's no guarantee the film will be successful enough to get a sequel.Thinking about it the biggest issue is, it feels like a prequel.
