‘Valerian’ Packs An Incredible World Into One Big, Visual Rollercoaster (Movie Review)

About halfway through writer/director Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, my main thought was how I just wanted more of this.

When I first heard they were making a live adaptation of the infamous Parker Bros. (now owned by Hasbro since 1991) game, Battleship, I thought oh my, what a huge naval epic it could be.  The possibilities were endless, in my opinion.  A grand scale naval adventure hasn’t seen success on the silver screen in […]
