Today I went to the avant premiere of the new space fairy tale of The Wachowskis: Jupiter Ascending.
This ambitious pair of brothers really belong to another a world when it comes to writing and directing sci-fi movies.
The movie tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a young woman who discovers that she is the heiress of an intergalactic empire and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive alien family (Annunakis?).
Like in Little Red Riding Hood, there is a wolf/man hybrid (Channing Tatum) who plays what Superman is to Lois Lane, swooping around on jet-boot rollerblades as we go through starship awesome fights, massive interplanetary sequences and Hollywood’s classic romantic cliches.
For the blind eye the film could appear as a nonsense space opera, but for those with eyes to see and ears to hear, the movie is full of disclosures about the secret alien agendas (Alien Abductions, Greys, Reptilians, Demons, Energy Harvesting et al.).
Once more Hollywood uses sci-fi genre to present uncomfortable truths as mere science fiction flicks.
At least this time they used the beautiful Mila Kunis to make their dirty work 😉
