Yeah, it’s a hot mess, but it’s just so infectiously fun that I’ve got to give it another star. Also reminds me I really need to read the comics.

Still great. Everything holds up really well, with the exception of Mark Knopfler’s electronic “orchestral” score, which sounds really chintzy to my ear now, but when it switches over to the acoustic guitar, it sings again.

Shocking to see such a young lady again who would grow up to be President of the United States.

Fun Cinderella story. Glad I went into it completely blind, because I was delighted to discover over the course of the story what had surely been basic plot points spoiled in the trailer. Not that I couldn’t often guess what was happening next in the film, but it was very well done.

Also, damn, they are rich. I mean like crazy rich.

Rewatch with R.

I love how when Joi steps out into the rain, it takes a few seconds for her software to start rendering raindrops on her skin. I love the weird revving noise in the soundtrack. I love that Mackenzie Davis is in this, if only for a minute. I love that the horse was really there. I love the “sync” love scene — I know Joi isn’t human, but even making the attempt feels like a triumph. I love that there is a shot in the desert that I am 99% certain is an homage to the Great Riddle Gate in The Neverending Story. I love the showroom holograms and how broken they are. I love that old bear of a dog. I love the final shots. And I love the way that Roger Deakins sees the world.

I love the humanity in this one, though I wish there was more to it. Almost feels like a deleted scene from the main film.

Ye gods, I despise Jared Leto. Interesting prologue, tho.
