Time's Running Out!

Just a reminder that according to Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, the International Space Station should currently look like THIS.

We'd better get busy, as we've got a lot of catching up to do.

This is a perfect example of why I hate movies that depict impossibly advanced technology, but are set just a few years in the future (which has now become the present). Would it have killed them to have the caption read "2080?"

Timeline flub aside, I still contend that the first five minutes of the movie are absolutely brilliant, as it wordlessly tells the story of how the Alpha station came to be. I loved the scenes of the station commanders greeting various Earth cultures to the station, then gradually transitioning into welcoming assorted alien representatives. It was definitely the highlight of the film.

If only the entire movie could have kept up this level of awesomeness!
