Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! Hosts Holly and David return for season 2 of the podcast! Time to start with a nice, non-controversial topic: Star Wars: The Last Jedi! Oh, wait.

Should We Go See Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in Theaters?

So after seeing trailers, it’s probably not far wrong to say that Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was the movie that we were most intrigued and excited to go see this year, especially taken on its own merits. Okay, sure, there’s lots of continuing franchise films to see this year – Marvel, Star Wars, etc. But this one captured our imagination, and it’s Luc Besson, and it seemed like a sure hit. The new Fifth Element.

And then… people actually saw it.

We’ve now heard from family that has both said “skip it in theaters” and that has said that they liked it. So… just as split as the Rotten Tomatoes score makes it seem. That means, tossing it back to you, dear readers! Vote in the poll! And if you’ve seen it, comment or shoot us a message on social media, letting us know whether we should go or not go!

Get Hype: Wonder Woman!

I mean, if I can’t tell you to enjoy this movie, how about a bunch of other folks?

We’re hoping to catch this opening weekend, something we haven’t done with a movie in a while. But it just looks so good and we don’t want to miss it. And I mean, it’s the DC Extended Universe, so we should be concerned, right?

Oh. Oh I see. That’s… that’s just how fresh? 97%? Oh.

Maybe DC has finally done it. If there was one movie they needed to nail it with in their whole enterprise right now, it’s Wonder Woman. Meaning, nicely done DC. But I mean, they’re normally just fine, right? It’s just that I’m a Marvel fan…

It’s really looking like there’s something “there” with this movie. And we couldn’t be more excited for that.
