kaberett: A painting of a ship, taken from the cover of Ann Leckie's novel Ancillary Justice. (ancillary justice)

I went to see it with [personal profile] me_and and [personal profile] sebastienne and [personal profile] shortcipher on, I think, the 24th of December; I walked out completely underwhelmed, completely unconvinced by the characters, and just not caring.

And then I read a bunch of meta, including all the discussion over at [personal profile] recessional's (no spoilers in post; spoilers in comments are ROT13ed) and [personal profile] nanila's not-a-review, which prompted the realisation that me liking the characters or finding them convincing wasn't the point, and then I cried a lot.

So! That's a thing. Noting for posterity, etc. Perhaps I will watch it again sometime soon.

That movie made me cry for all the reasons that it made [personal profile] recessional. It was a proper Star Wars movie.

perhaps yes <3 I enjoyed it immensely both times I saw it — it felt so painful and true.
