July was a pretty good month for quality films and just like any month it had its highs and lows! This is going to be the first time that Men vs. Movies is doing a written best and worst for the month. This article will compile Nick, Brody, and Sean's list so that you could see our respective favorite and least favorite movies of this month and some of the reasons why.
Opening this week is French director Luc Besson’s latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The $180 million dollar sci-fi epic is both the highest budgeted independent and French film of all-time. While the title is unfamiliar to the casual movie goer in North America, the film is actually based off of a 50 year old French comic book. On the surface, it would seem strange for Besson to follow up his previous film, the international Scarlett Johansson hit Lucy, with a sci-fi film, but this kind of genre hopping has been a staple of Luc Besson’s career.
Another week, another Weekend Update! During this Comic-Con week we see the release of two tentpole films in Christopher Nolan's WWII Epic Dunkirk and Luc Besson's Sci-Fi adventure Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets. As always, you can purchase tickets in advance through Fandango by simply clicking the picture associated with each movie.
