Starring Sean Bean and Adam Greaves-Neale, The Young Messiah is the tale of Jesus as a boy…

I’ve certainly never watched a movie that covers Jesus as a 7 year-old boy. As intriguing as the  director, Cyrus Nowrasteh’s trailer looks, will the film be a good? You can find out at Easter 2016.

Release Date (s): March 11th 2016 (US)

Happy The Young Messiah 🙂

JUPITER ASCENDING (2015): What I Enjoyed Most? Mila Kunis’ Royal Outfits

Directed by The Wachowskis, the duo behind The Matrix (1999) trilogy and starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne, I had relatively high hopes for how Jupiter Ascending would turn out… admittedly, mostly because of Redmayne.

After the event however, it would be quite the stretch for me to call Jupiter Ascending a ‘good film’ – though there are some things I enjoyed. Namely, Mila Kunis’ royal outfits, the visuals of Jupiter and the rather disturbingly good theory about ‘harvesting’ planet earth.

Everything else was just unconvincing. I found myself unable to properly buy into any of the characters let alone the central love story.

Usually I can suspend my disbelief given that a story is executed well – whether it be sci-fi, fantasy, etc. That’s just not completely the case here.

I still love Mila Kunis, especially in That 70s Show, Family Guy and Black Swan (2010) – just not in Jupiter Ascending.

Happy film loving. Now, go watch The Matrix 🙂
