Viewing Notes

Goddamn do I love this movie. It’s a potpourri of tropes / things I love in YA science fiction adaptations. So many concepts thrown in here plus nods to other famous sci-fi films. Love the characters and the hero journey. Looks fucking amazing on 4K UHD. I think this was the first 4K UHD film I’ve gotten from the library (mine doesn’t have any but a few in the network have some but they haven’t been able to check out until this one).

There’s a directors commentary I’d love to hear sometime. I’d like to own this one eventually. Totally my kind of flick.
