Current Residence: Central Queensland, in a country bereft of common sense, rotten to the core. Once free, now basking in what only deserves ridicule from its neighbours. Its politics cater to the corrupt, the foolish. Favourite genre of music: Hard to say, really... but I tend to favour the orchestrated, non-lyric variety. Favourite style of art: A blend between Sci-Fi and Fantasy, mostly. I'm also a fan of watercolour work. Favourite artist: God. His works are beyond human talent and if you can't see them that's your choice. Favourite mortal artists: Edmund Leighton, Fredrik Andersson, Jenny Dolfen, Bayardwu, Darren Tan, Kai Lim, whoever is responsible for the Homeworld series, Wang Lin, & Kekai Kotaki, to name a few...
Personal Quote: Creating something only becomes pointless when you no longer learn or feel anything for it.

What can I say? Alita is a wonderful film. Visually spectacular, great talent from everyone involved.
Was it perfect? Not at all but it was great where it mattered! The support cast had the right amount of chemistry with the lead and Rosa Salazar’s performance as Alita was especially memorable. I doubt I could think of a better lady for the role. There’s a genuine sense of humbleness and grace from the actress that makes her an incredibly likeable lead. She could kick ass but with the same breath was not spiteful about it. There were no politics involved either, just good clean storytelling worthy of a sequel.
Speaking of clean, I have to give respect where it's due to the romance sub plot. It was incredibly wholesome and the chemistry between Alita and Hugo was palpable. It wasn't corny nor cringey. I actually enjoyed their scenes a lot and on that note I feel like this was the case for many characters who never felt 'redundant' to the story. They all played their part and while Alita herself was certainly the main focus she didn't overshadow their performances. Even the villains had their moments, who were imposing and sometimes downright unnerving.
That all said, though, what the heck were the critics smoking? They clearly did not see the same film as the audience. Perhaps there’s an agenda involved? Perhaps not. What I will say though is I can't believe there are people out there saying Alita is 'too pretty' as an excuse to despise the film. Is this where we're at now as a civilisation? Must we celebrate mediocrity? Must we be content with the ugly of mind and body? If I had the means I'd watch Alita many more times just to support all involved because I sure as heck won't be seeing a certain other film that is too busy trying to drown itself out at sea before it even reaches the pier. Its 'captain' has lost the plot.
