silly humor
physical comedy


excellent camera work
immersive atmosphere
ethereal cinematography
transcendent use of color and/or shadow
fitting soundtrack

acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)

intense action
epic effects

The world building took a while (~1hr), but generally worth the wait.
Excellent insect inspired flying machines. Although the balloon inflating physics was quite lacking.

Totally unexpected that fluent Chinese made an appearance. However, erring on the side of being butthurt and pc, of course the only such character is the silent, scheming, smart, but backstabbing traitor. sigh.
