Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

Black Holes are not visible. They are so dense that even light cannot escape their gravitational pull. We know that they are there because we can see all the stars and such that orbit them. Black Holes are the void at the center of intense cosmic beauty. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevigne are the void at the center of this film’s cosmic beauty. Their relationship drama is DOA, but all the set pieces, alien creatures, and space diplomacy swirling around them is truly something to behold. And fortunately, that’s what most of the film consists of. It’s pretty easy to check out for their Soap Opera and check back in for some universe-spanning wiz-bang. I can only imagine what it looks like on a giant screen.
