Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Highly enjoyable sci-fi romp

(Edit) 06/12/2017

I wonder sometimes if I watched the same film as all these negative review writers.

I came to this film with no expectations other than I had seen a trailer displayed on an Oled TV in John Lewis and it looked interesting. but I am glad I added it to my list because both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The story is decent enough though the plot is rather predictable, the world they have created and the graphics were astonishing, the sound was fairly consistent unlike so many other action films that have you jumping for the remote so you can hear what's being said or trying to turn the sound down so you do not blast your neighbours and, despite it being on DVD, the picture was crystal clear on our 55 inch screen.

I just hope that now they know their idea and new actor formulae works they get a less predictable scriptwriter and create a follow-up using the same CGI crew and director as that would be really something.

Ghost in the Shell

Enjoyed it enough to want to see the sequel if they make one

(Edit) 13/11/2017

We hadn't seen the animated version or read the book so we came to this clean.

My husband and I both though it was a little wierd in places and much of it reminded me of Blade Runner but we both enjoyed it enough to stop doing other things and watch the film which is always a good sign since nine times out of ten we are too engrossed in other things to give the film we are watching our full attention. But then the film has a good enough story that does make you think, especially about what those that have could do to people who don't have without their permission.

Not as good as Avatar or the Startrek and Star Wars movies but A decent enough Sci-fi films so, if they make a sequel, I will be happy to watch it
