GLOW

Total Score

Total ScoreWe all grew up with wrestling. You were either one of those who continually scoffed at it as the man version of a TV soap opera, or an avid fan despite knowing it as the man version of a TV soap opera. Point being, Wrestling has been an iconic pop entertainment these past decades.

Atomic Blonde Leaves You Shaken, Not Stirred

Total Score

Total ScoreAs the latest spy blockbuster from one half the directors of iconic action movie John Wick, you’d think Atomic Blonde would live up to the hype – improve on it even, or at least follow in Wick’s dark and sexy footsteps.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets | DAGeeks Movie Review

Total Score

Total ScoreBased off the French comic book “Valerian and Laureline”, the movie Valerian is a love note from director Luc Besson. It features a lot of signature special effects and incredible world settings, which recalls his work in the 5th Element. The setting of Valerian is excellent, both in visual presentation and in concept. The movie unveils a magnificent universe, particularly the space-city of Alpha and the multi-dimensional marketplace, and utilizes it with deftness. Valerian succeeds in drawing us into a very alien but very interesting fictional future. Unfortunately, this…
