Today’s episode is about the new James Cameron-backed, Robert Rodriguez-helmed CGI abomination that is Alita: Battle Angel. It’s based on a manga which Cameron has held the rights to for years, and it kind of takes the same all or nothing approach to CG that Avatar did 10 years ago. Except damn this movie sucked.
You know by now that we here at So…I’m Watching This Show like to like things. We generally go into movies with a positive attitude, understanding who the movie is for if not us, and trying to make the most of the ticket price. In the case of Alita, Kristin managed to go in with an open mind, but Wil was determined to hate it. Ultimately, Wil was right. They BOTH hated this movie and it’d take too long to tell you exactly why here.
So, if you liked Alita: Battle Angel, good on ya. We are always happy when people like stuff. However, it was a COMPLETE miss for both of us and we dump on it for a good half hour. We close the episode talking about some things we did enjoy though: The Grammys, and episode 1 of Pen15. We’d love for you to join us for some HOT tea about Alita, and stick around for more on today’s episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
