UPDATE!

The other day in the press, I heard the Wachowski's refereed to as the Wachowski sisters. So both have been altered.

Please make note for future reference.

Just out of curiosity, do those transgender treatments and operations really do everything to change a guy into a gal? Shocked

I mean, females have XX chromosomes. Males have XY chromosomes. So, do the Wachowskis now have nothing but XX chromosomes?

If not . . . doesn't that mean they're still "guys"?

Whether they like it not? Very Happy

I watched it tonight. Was it confusing? A bit. Well more than a bit.

Was it beautiful to see? Yes. Fantastic production design and SPFX.

Was it a horror movie? HELL YES! Colonizing planets just so they could murder the entire population for an Elixir Vitae, is a pure horror plot line. AND IT WASN'T THE MAJOR THEME OF THE MOVIE!

Although, you do have to kind of admire their patience in being willing to wait a few million years to harvest their crop. Talk about taking the long view!

Was it better than I expected? Surprisingly, yes. I found it very enjoyable despite the genocide plot line.

And Sean Bean SURVIVED! That in itself is shocking.

Remember in the first season of "Miami Vice" when the car they used was a Volkswagen in a Ferrari lookalike body?

Same thing.

The fake Ferrari Daytonas used in the first two seasons were actually re-bodied Corvettes.

Interesting I had read that the were Volkswagens. Thanks.

Still the same thing.
