The Fifth Element director Luc Besson returns to the realm of sci-fi with an expansive, super-expensive adventure whose creativity overshadows its more uneven elements, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The movie is based off of “Valérian and Laureline,” a sexy French comic book series featuring a pair of futuristic crime fighters who travel through space to uphold the law. What could have been a movie full of new philosophies and themes ends up just being really pretty and having no substance.

Review: Baywatch

Let’s face it: The Rock is awesome. And pretty much everything he does is awesome, good or bad. So when it was announced that he was doing the Baywatch movie based on the television show which ran eleven seasons from 1989-2001, and it was getting this 21 Jump Street movie treatment, where they poke fun at it while actually making a movie about it, I was sold. What could have been really terrible ended up being a hilarious and raunchy movie that was very entertaining.
