I figured Alita: Battle Angel would be a fun movie. It's insanely good and I've been back multiple times. Absolutely stunning. 9.5/10
one plus one

- Dimi 7+1The teenager crap in the first 20-30 minutes is cringe-worthy and partially ruined the movie for me.
Once it was past that though, I enjoyed it a lot.3w
- Fair, but it's really supposed to be cringy. (e.g., watch what happens to a "Twilight" romance in Iron City) They really had to establish the teeny doomed first crush and naivete in order to destroy it. I'd say they actually toned it down relative to the manga so that the audience would have at least a bit of sympathy for Hugo.
(I interpreted the entire thing much differently the second time though.)3w
- Dimi 7+1Yep I don't disagree, it was pretty minimalistic. It's just so classic in most movies with teenagers that I'm rolling my eyes every time. 😄
Most of the plot was predictable but the movie was excellently executed regardless.3w
