Big-Budget Movies Like “Valerian” Remind Me of Going to a Mega-Church


"I am a sucker for shiny things. That’s the first thing any of my friends will tell you about me. Whether it be new people, new books, new things to do — if it’s pretty or cool, I’m into it. And that goes for movies, too. If it’s aesthetically pleasing, if it’s fantastical, if it’s visually stimulating, I’m there for it. So when I saw the trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, it fit all those things." -Kevin Garcia
