A good movie

Right now, according to IMDb, this is the best movie released in 2016 (I'm not sure if it will last but we'll see soon enough) so you can't argue that I did try not to show the best movie possible to my filmclub. It's just a shame that it didn't turn out to be really amazing. I mean, I thought it was visually really neat, Amy Adams gave a solid performance and I really loved the fact that they put... read more

Some of the best films in more typically obtuse and loud genres are the ones that strive for something a little bit deeper. Look no further than the recent spate of films like Interstellar or Gravity, messy or imperfect as they may be, that have been immensely satisfying and immersive as personal stories wrapped up in science-fiction dressing. Joining them, and my personal favorite of the three, i... read more

Masterful science fiction

"Despite knowing the journey... and where it leads... I embrace it... and I welcome every moment of it."Science fiction movies about extraterrestrials have existed for decades, to the point that there's ostensibly very little in the way of originality to be mined from the well-worn "alien invasion" subgenre. Enter 2016's Arrival, a rare type of sci-fi drama which dares to realistically explore wha... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: September (9 movies items)

"September 10 "If you could see your whole life from start to finish, would you change things?" "Maybe I'd say what I felt more often. I-I don't know." I had heard a lot of great things about Arrival, but never got the chance to see it when it was in theatres and it wasn't until I recently found out it was on Netflix that I got around to watching it and man it really deserves all the praise it has gotten. It's an intelligent sci-fi film with a smart script, one of the most original stories of"

Leffalista 2017 (40 movies items)

"21.9 Kuvakukko rewatched Toisella katselukerralla ehkä jopa hitusen paremmin toimi. Vonnegutin tralfamadorelaiset tulee vahvasti mieleen joten ei nyt suoraan leffaan liittyvä kirjalainaus tähän kohtaa: "All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before, bugs in amber.""

The Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century (40 movies items)

"The aliens are here ... but are they friend or foe? That urgent question powers Denis Villeneuve's sober sci-fi drama, which balances the cerebral and the emotional as gracefully as those interstellar spacecrafts hovering just above Earth's surface. Amy Adams is a linguist still grieving for her dead daughter when extraterrestrials appear across the globe, speaking in a sophisticated language only she can unravel – that is, if she can stop wary superpowers from declaring war on our visitors fi"

2016 Films - Top 10 (20 movies items)

" Arrival is a terrific sci-fi film. Helped by great cinematography, music, production design and direction, Arrival stands out as one of the more interesting sci-fi films in recent years. With a script that greatly manages to handle the complexity and nuance of language and communication, Denis Villeneuve's film manages to delve into themes and ideas that are just as relevant today. The film also offers some strong human connection and emotion. Amy Adams carries much of this film on her shoulde"

"28th of July, Blu-Ray Vaihteeksi vähän filosofisempi tieteispaukku, joka tosin ei ollut läheskään niin vaikeasti ymmärrettävä, mitä Kubrickin Avaruusseikkailu. Tehosteet ovat tässä erittäin näyttäviä, vaikkakin hyvin maltillisia. Teemaltaan Arrival käsittelee enemmän sitä, mitä ihmiset voivat oppia avaruuden ulkopuolisesta elämästä ja miten kommunikoida vieraiden elämänmuotojen kanssa. Harmillisesti tässä toistuvat lukuisat scifi-kliseet, kuten se väistämätön tosis"
