Synopsis

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

I will say that this had some of the best 3D special effects I have ever watched. I really can't remember being blown away by the sound, but it could have been the theater. Story... Well, I will let others comment on that. Not sure I will pic this up. If I had a 120in screen I may have because of the visuals though.

I'm a sucker for most things sci-fi - but at the prices shown above, I won't be buying this movie until it shows up used and under $20.00!

I can only hope the quoted prices are a typo!

Amazon has it listed for $27.99 for the 3D Blu Ray.

I didn't watch it at the theatre but I may pick up the BR.

Is it me or did Ralph not rate it?

I expected a lot from this movie, saw it in the theater, and left very disappointed. It wasn't a very good movie, and the action and special effects were over the top but couldn't save it. Curious how Ralph rates it.
I don't think this is his review...a coming soon kinda thing. And I thought this was an Atmos release as well....it would be a good candidate.

Yes, my thought exactly. I always look for Ralph's rating. I looked twice to make sure that I did not see it and missed it but it wasn't there.

"With just a few script tweaks, this long, dull and downright bizarre bore-a-thon could have been more aptly named Uranus Numbing."


Of course I will watch it anyway.:D

Usually in a lot of reviews information left out is negative.

Professional audio video reviews on gear is nearly worthless. When is the last time you saw a product get trashed ??? Yet we all know there is junk out there.

The missing info I assume he thought it was underwhelming. I did.

I think this is just an announcement, reviews are usually a week or so before wide release. I doubt Ralph has the disc yet, or is embargoed...

Greetings,

Gentlemen, this is just a press release announcing the title. Hence the thread title.. ;)

My review will post somewhere much close to street date (figure a week or two before).


Regards,

I really don't care about all this film's critics; I just want it so 3D Blu-ray bad. ...First day release purchase.

* It's in Dolby Atmos too. :cool: ...$29.99 (+12% tax) here in Canada. ...Normal price routine for blockbuster 3D Blu-ray (Disney 3D, some are $44.99+).

How bad is the story? I know it bombed at the box office and it was well hyped before it hit
