Deeply silly, deeply stupid movie. I will probably see every sequel they make to it.
Me: How incredible is it that an auteur in his hay day was so obsessed with pulp science fiction, Akira Kurosawa movies, and the Vietnam War, decided to cut his teeth on such an ambitious spin on Campbellian myth? His obvious virtuosic grasp on filmmaking fundamentals and lovably goofy sensibilities make for such a compelling world and assortment of characters. How does something so tried and true, so worn, so influential, remain so timeless and fun? What a miracle.
Also Me: I like when the cute little robot goes ‘doot doot’
