    Jupiter Descending...

    This was fun action sci-fi from the Chinese perspective so this idea of ancestry and building generation upon generation is glorified and proud. "Our children will see the ice turn to water."

    ★★★

    A competent rom-com set in the post-Trump era. Some jokes hit, some miss but Rogen and Theron have believable chemistry for a beauty/beast dynamic. Baby Cube is always fun even if his character isn't well written, i.e. Wakanda forever? I think the references and jokes have already dated this film and in 10 years this will be a 2019 movie that 2029 audiences will scratch their heads while watching.

    ★★★½

    Animated Short Checklist:
    □ The main character loses/gives up on aspiration.
    □ The lead loses a loved one.
    □ The lead is then motivated to return to dreams inspired by dead beloved.
