I remember reading that one a while back and it is a trip.
It is a stupid reason but I’m not even joking it’s why I and my friends didn’t watch the film. It just be like that sometimes.
Heh. I keep all my stubs, too. Going back over 25 years at this point.

Excerpts from the article:
This article falls in line with something I was thinking about recently, as I've kept all of my movie ticket stubs going back over 20 years. As soon as I was old enough to drive I saw lots of movies in theaters throughout the 90s and early 00s, but these days when you look at my stubs you'll see franchise after franchise with the occasional outlier like Alita. I'm less likely to take a chance on a movie that's unfamiliar now, and the studios know it.
You have to see it in order to understand.
Didnt want to go too in on the descrip because I didn't want to derail. Though, to stay on point, I have no desire to watch Alita because I didn't like the comics.
There were 2 visual scenes and 2 exposition scenes explaining that she was "different"
OK, I'll take your word for it. I want to see it eventually.You have to see it in order to understand.
Hated the look in the trailer...
Fell in love about 5 minutes into the movie...
Got some cool context about halfway thru.
And seeing the rest of the characters in the world doesnt make Alita stand out of place as much as the main character focused trailer does.
And what was the major theme of captain marvel besides setting up the avengers sequel?What? No. The movie is still about her naively fawning over some total doofus when she's not striking "badass anime poses." Like the action and aesthetic are great, and the main actress does well with what she's got, but it's real fucking messily put together.
It's like baby's first puberty/classism metaphor.
Yeah, I remember reading it after going on a Japanese horror binge once I read a bunch of Junji Ito stuff. Was looking for pretty much anything similar and that one was highly recommended. That was probably 6 or 7 years ago.
Then you should see Wonder Woman ASAP, because it's great.
Alita wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination. The story, lead performance, art design, and above all, action, were so much better than the trailers made them out to be.
Lara Croft was ok, nothing special and an improvement over the Jolie movies (low bar, I know). But yeah, I like them all, too.
This comment is ridiculous. How is it a dumb reason? If a visual aspect of a film is off putting, enough to make you not want to see it, that is a perfectly valid reason not to go watch.
I never heard of the other two, because I live in a box or something. I'll add them to my netflix DVD list and give them a watch.
You're not really missing out. Alita was a bit more fun than I thought it was going to be, but more in the Venom sort of way, where I was having a good time while acknowledging that the movie was mostly bad.
