Have you ever watched a movie and thought to yourself, “I’m curious how that’s done,” or “I wonder what it would be like to do that?” Well after pre-screening Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in 3D I was fascinated to understand our solar system and as well, what's needed to head up to the galaxy. The perfect opportunity presented itself and I HAD to go, California Science Center in LA has the Shuttle Endeavour on hand! At 78 feet wide, 57 feet high and 122 feet long—longer than two school buses—navigating the streets of Los Angeles, Inglewood required the guidance and skill of over 100 people to house it at the California Science Center. After watching Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which by the way you must catch in 3D, the movie will leave you in wonderment. The menagerie of colors, the depth of our solar system and literally, out of the world escapades will leave you wanting to learn what’s really out there.
Now that you know Space Shuttle Endeavour is at the California Science Center and you’re able to explore every aspect of this magnificent piece of machinery that has been launched into the sky and has seen things that, we, everyday people will never see, you'll be blown away. You will have a newfound respect for our astronauts, you’ll learn and see things that will have you asking a million questions. Did you know when food is prepared for the astronauts and their mission, they can’t pack anything that might cause crumbs! If crumbs are created it can get into their eyes, or into machinery which may wreak havoc, who would have thought? WOW. The vast information that may be found at the California Science Center is riveting.

A little bit about Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The incredible director/ producer Luc Besson spear headed a phenomenal project, which was truly his baby. Watching Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in 3D will not disappoint. I walked in with high expectations since he’s also the director of some of my other iconic favorite films, Lucy, Fifth Element, Taken, but he’s done it again and this movie can be added to the list of fan favorites. The plot begins in the year 2740. Major Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Sergeant Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are on board their spacecraft “The Intruder”. Though they have a professional relationship, Valerian’s mission is to win Laureline’s heart, but his past escapades make Laueline highly apprehensive. We follow them through their first mission to retrieve the last remaining Converter, then to the city of Alpha to ensure the safety of Commander Arun Filitt (Clive Owen) where a mysterious dark force is taking over. And from here their mission is to save the City of a Thousand Planets while dodging shootouts with aliens, and unsuspecting obstacles. With its high budget of $180 million, the hard work that Besson and his crew put into the detailing and the graphic design comes through. Think Fifth Element meets Star Wars… but better! So you don’t miss out, it is highly recommended to watch this movie is in 3D. You might miss all the cool intricacies otherwise like the 1000 different aliens like Bubble, who was played by Rhianna. And she gives one of the best performances of the film! I have to emphasize the amazingness that is Cara Delevingne’s character. Laureline is a badass and equal to her male counterpart. You can see the frustration her character goes through to prove herself just as skilled time and time again, but that doesn’t hold her back. She refuses to let Valerian be the only one to get his hands dirty and demands to be on the front lines with Valerian. One might say that Cara was perfectly cast for this role as she herself might have a little badass tendency as well. Overall this movie was well executed and highly recommended!
