    It's ironic how back in the day, a terrible effect or puppet would ruin a good performance by an actor. Now it's the terrible actors, who are ruining the good effects and CGI characters.

    The start of the music made me think it was "Fat bottomed girls" by Queen.

    It was not.

    I'm now disappointed.

    Synopsis:
    Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner – blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him. Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time – uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.

    Um...those were not terrible puppets. Farscape is amazing and if you haven't watched it through at least twice you should feel bad.

    Farscape being amazing is what I'm saying. I'm trying to come up with a sci fi anything that used puppets regularly within the past 20 years, and I can't come up with anything other than classics like Gremlins and the Never Ending Story. So my only assumption was you had to be insulting all these good movies and shows that used puppets... 'cause I don't know any bad ones.

    I think anything that was featured on MST3K falls into that category.

    The Dark Crystal and The Puppet Master series were pretty cringe worthy.
