Mortal Engines (2018)

You thought a movie about living, moving cities would be cheesy? Hell no.

It might be an obvious Star Wars meets dystopian sci-fi future hybrid, with a little Great Wall of China mixed in with some Terminator and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (or what's that movie about the city up the clouds?) as they enter the mist, but it's also one grand adventure, a love story without any intimacy, and an imaginative world unlike any other. It's fantasy at it's finest, with orchestral music blasting behind the final battle, and with Hugo Weaving playing the grand villain you just can't go wrong.

Props Hera Hilmar and Robert Sheehan on their lead roles, too. And that guy whose name sounds like a rapper. And Jihae, whomever she is.

It wasn't really what I expected it to be, but I had a blast with it. I'm impressed with the special effects, too, and the worlds they manage to build these days that traditional limitations might not have allowed. Even if they're not always perfect. Even if it could've been even more amazing had they managed it all with props. Good watch.
