Excellent movie. Saw it this morning and loved it.
and I'll say it, you don't have to see Valerian. Saw it yesterday and while stunningly beautiful in spots it is also incredibly boring. Bad script, bad acting, week story. Saddest comment I can make is that the most impressive acting job came from Rihanna


Seeing Dunkirk Next week

I had heard similar stories about Valerian. Even saw it compared to Battlefield Earth in just general bad sci-fi form.

It isn't even close to as bad as Battlefield Earth*, that is one of the worst and most nonsensical movies of all time. Nor is it as bad as Jupiter Ascending, in fact during the movie with about 10/15 mins remaining I actually had that thought "This is bad, but not as bad as Jupiter Ascending"

I'd give this movie at least a 1/2 a star to a full star more than either of those as it did have some good in it. As I mentioned Rihanna was surprisingly good, though her character was a part of a completely pointless arc that seemed to be there only to add 30 mins to the movie. The world building was great with aliens that mostly made sense (except for a jellyfish) and motivations that did as well. Certainly nothing as bad as Battlefield Earths Psyclos of the "some kind of wolf" thing of Ascending. This movie bored me whereas those are absurd to the point of funny.


*I happen to love Battlefield Earth for it's awfulness. Something about that movie always keeps me watching

It is terrible but amusing to watch. I had figured the comparison was a bit hyperbolic honestly. It's one that I'll wait to see on streaming or something. The visuals did look amazing in the trailer.
