I can’t wait to see this movie next month. I’ll finish this video after I’ve seen the movie. I love dumb action films, I love sci-fi, and I love beautiful spectacle. I don’t mind CGI. I think I’ll like it, especially since I liked Jupiter Ascending. Although, the fact that you mentioned Phantom Menace worries me… that’s where I draw the line. O.O

There’s actually a lot less shots with CGI in The Phantom Menace than you think. Even less so than The Force Awakens.

This is my main grind with this movie: even within the very little I actually watched (a teaser and a scene shown in the Late Show with Stephen Colbert), the characters are thoroughly unlikable. And it saddens me, because the original material is a staple of sci-fi comics (well, French ones), sure it’s flawed and some things didn’t age well, but Valérien and Laureline are lovable (Why isn’t she even mentioned in the title anyway ? she’s the Badass-yet-sexy-who-makes-things-happen, compared to Valérien who’s mostly there as a diplomat/comic relief. You keep calling her “the girl” and that’s terrifying because Laureline… Read more »

I saw ‘Dunkirk’ yesterday and it didn’t appear loud but some of the dialog wasn’t loud enough when you consider their accents. I’d bet that I missed 15% of what they were saying because I couldn’t understand them.
Also, the movie is shown slightly out of order. It worked in ‘Memento’ but it doesn’t work as well here. ‘Dunkirk’ should have only been shown in order IMHO.
-I’m going to try to see ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ tomorrow. I’m now eager to see just how messed up it really is.

Just saw ‘Valerian’. The two main characters are definitely not right for each other. There were a few common archetypes and other predictable character types. It wasn’t a bad movie, but it was a beautifully average movie.

“Valerian”. Isn’t that the name of those scantily-clad mystic women from that Blast Hardcheese movie?

Given the lukewarm reception this movie’s been getting, it might have benefited from having a race of sexy witch women in it.

Herbie Hancock was in this movie. And yet I didn’t see a single dancing mannequin or strutting pair of mannequin legs.

I saw it the other night. I went in expecting another Jupiter Ascending, but it was way better. I’d read your summary of this video before I went, and now I’ve watched this review, and I still don’t know why you tag it as a stupid movie. Sure, I’ve seen smarter, but this is no Akiva Goldsman outing. Though when you point out the scene where she’s caught by a butterfly fisherman and ask ‘why didn’t *she* blast the guy?’ I asked myself the same thing (the best answer I could come up with was: maybe because he knew what… Read more »
