Jupiter Ascending

Remember when I said that Jupiter Ascending would be a terrible film? Well, look right here. Honestly, I believe there has not been such beautifully shot footage so far this year. The problem lay all in the execution. I mean, that beginning is great, but why the Mila Kunis narration? Honestly, I would've just started with Kunis and Tatum driving to Sean Bean and some exposition explaining the situation. Not only does it cut the run time, but the parts of the film that do flow smoothly don't feel like a piece of shit. I'm not going to talk too much about it because of Alex Leadbeater, he too similarly disliked the film but fuck him.
Fuck you deadbeater Leadbeater!

Hell, I wasn't even going to post about this until fucking Leadbeater posted this article. Pretext, Zack Snyder released an image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman for his cameo in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.  His first point of negativity, the fact that it says "Unite The Seven". Okay, how does that devalue the picture anyhow? Sure you could argue bad marketing on part of the movie, but if it is only tangentially related to your article, and you explain the secant rather than the tangent, you are going off topic. This is Advanced Placement English me speaking. He says it looks like a fan edited image, with image in question being fan made concept art. First off, no it doesn't, and second off, so what if it does. Are you the kind of guy who wants comic characters to deviate from their origins or stay true. You could argue Momoa not going blonde is already a partial deviation, so why not go the full way? The point is, you do not argue that and in your next section you say the presentation is wrong and the picture itself is not silly, after paragraphs of explaining why previous images were good? Was there a point to that section? Then he says the trident is what is wrong with the image? The thing that is not the focus of the image and is partially covered by text is what devalues this entire image? Shut the fuck up, if it looks plastic, I ask you, have you ever been to Italy or Greece (before that shit got fucked up) and seen at trident or sword on display? Answer is probably no. Then you call the tattoos bad. If I'm right, those tattoos mesh in with the character in regards to the actor. However, what makes them bad is that they aren't the same style as the armour?  Yeah, obviously it's inspired by something aquatic, but the fact of the matter is, that is part of his skin, not something he wears over his skin. Just like before, it's only supposed to be tangentially related and that is his appearance, not his armour's appearance. Then he says where is the orange, something which, didn't he kind of mock for saying the picture looked fan made? It's a picture with a lot of negative light and grey, even if there is orange, you wouldn't be able to see it yet anyways. Then he calls him cross eyed. What the fuck is that supposed to mean? That's not even judging the character of the image, that is straight up discriminating against a man for a part of his body he can't control. As a black man, I can say that and fuck you Leadbeater. Wait, Aqua-Drogo? Has Leadbeater read the script and does he know exactly how Aquaman will act? Is it like Khal Drogo? No, then why the fuck would he say that?  Then he says the image is just a poor attempt to try and make Aquaman cool. Okay, so your making a superhero movie and you release the image of a hero and you make it look not cool? Please, tell me the logic in that you dumbass.
Fuck you again Leadbeater!
