    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★½

    Valerian is a sensory overload. I imagine this is what it would feel like if you squeezed the entirety of the Star Trek Universe into a single 2 hour movie. This is because every scene is dripping with new characters and environments. And the  scenes are constantly changing throughout the movie.

    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★½

    Ghost In The Shell's strengths are its visuals and acting. I felt an emotiknal tug as well, as Scar Jo's character asked where do I belong?

    ★★★★★

    "The nun's taught us there were two ways through life, the way of nature and the way of grace". Tree of Life explores existence. It explores life spirituality, and meaning. It' doesn't boast any explanations, but rather ideas to ponder and wrestle with. Malick attempts to capture the beauty and darkness of the world. He does so in one of the most beautifully visually appealing films ever. If you can spend 2 hours pondering life and existence, then this film is a must see. If you're just here to be entertained stay away. Watching this movie is a religious experience.
