Early thoughts on Peter Jackson's and Christan Rivers Mortal Engines movie.

Earlier thread.


No need to see the movie after that trailer. Looks pretty silly anyway, glad I won’t have to waste an hour or two on it.

Actually, I’d be okay with it if it looked like they were doubling down on the silliness on the premise and going for something truly loopy and surreal. It’s a matter of tone. Think about it: “Predatory cities on treads” sounds like a terrific episode of *Samurai Jack *or Doctor Who.

Hey, if you can lift a city to add sewers, why not lift it to add treads?
