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 what might occur if otherworldly beings visited Earth, without resorting to battles or large-scale destruction. More than just another action blockbuster involving aliens, Arrival is endowed with a maturity in both its storytelling and cinematic technique that's rarely glimpsed, bolstered by an Oscar-nominated screenplay by Eric Heisserer (based on Ted Chiang's short story "Story of Your L” read more

" Vista: 24/03/2017 Revista. Opinión: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENg7kT4cXv8 + No, no es la mejor película de villeneuve, y le bajo la nota a un 7, mantengo casi todo, solo que ahora agrego de que la película lo arruina cuando se trata de introducir el concepto de las cosas temporales y lo relacionado con el giro, lo cual esta lleno de cosas sin sentido, junto con una resolución muy pobre del conflicto, aun así, sigue siendo una buena película.

2017: The Movie List (31 movies items)

"Onnistuu hyvin pääteemansa eli kommunikaation ja muukalaisiin kohdistuvan ennakkoluulon ja väärinymmärryksen käsittelyssä. CGI ei ole parhaasta päästä alienien kohdalla, muttei haittaa aivan niin paljon kuin turhan alleviivaavaksi pistetty loppu. Tunnelma kuitenkin on kohdallaan ja näytteleminen on todella hyvää kautta linjan. Muuten, äänisuunnittelu on niin hyvää että lentokoneen järjestelmän kautta nappikuulokkeillakin kuultuna olin hämmästynyt."

"March 12th Director: Denis Villeneuve Was actually a very interesting film, the only thing that makes it not as good as it should be is skipping over the language deciphering. I found that to be the most interesting part of the film and then they just pretty much cut it all out."

Movie Diary (spiel within, not spoiler free) pt.ii (16 movies items)

"The first half is surprisingly good. They realistically make you feel the epicness of suddenly finding aliens on earth and the fear that comes with it. It deals well with the questions that would come up in that situation- what is their purpose, how to communicate, how to establish an accurate basis of communication, what about outerspace contagions, how did they get there, what is their technology, should humans "show force" and take the offensive (NO). The movie made me think humans would tota"
