Running Time: 115 min.

It has been a decent month at the movies, with several solid titles being released over the past week. Atomic Blonde isn’t the best of the bunch and suffers from a lack of emotional investment in the character, but it does provide a few excellent moments of popcorn thrills and a charismatic lead, which help elevate it over a fairly humdrum plotline.

Running Time: 137 min.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets opens with an absolutely phenomenal montage. It depicts human progress into space over the passing of centuries, eventually leading to the creation of an orbiting space station featured prominently in the film. This gorgeous, quirky and strangely affecting opening ends up emphasizing camaraderie between all beings. The bit is so strikingly good, in fact, that it’s pretty much impossible for the rest of the film to top it. Yes, nothing can quite match this sequence, but the feature itself still manages to offer a lot of fun, popcorn entertainment thrills.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and partner...
