… fateful July day in Independence Hall: “Meh, being British wouldn’t be so bad!” Non-native English speakers have been propping up, improving, and straight-up saving this country since (actual) day one. The language you speak when you land in a new country doesn’t predict how valuable an American you can be, and never did.

, , , ,

(CNN)A feast for the eyes and positively numbing on the brain, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” makes an early bid for worst movie of the year — or at least, the most ostentatious waste of money, given the lavish trappings of this comic-book adaptation from French writer-director Luc Besson. To be fair, the actors’ performances are largely drowned under the psychedelic mayhem surrounding them, but even so, it’s a photo finish in this setting …
