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

"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

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"

" Notes: Well, I thought it was visually really neat, Amy Adams gave a solid performance and I really loved the fact that they put the focus on language and on the difficulty and importance to be able to communicate with a possible Alien life form. As a result, it was probably one of the most minimalistic Science-Fiction features I have seen but it wasn't a bad thing, in the contrary. Unfortunately, I'm familiar with this old gimmick of creating an ominous mood and keeping the audience for as l"

Year By Year Of My Favorite Flix (97 movies items)

"Well, the millenium's answer to the 1997 sci-fi thinker Contact, has made it's arrival. And just like the Jodie Foster movie, this one deals with a more "realistic" approach to Earth's first contact with extraterrestrials, encompassing the struggle between peaceful approaches of communication and the "better safe than sorry" attitude from the more militarily minded. Also sharing the same theme as Contact is the endeavor to decipher the penmanship of the visitors. However, The Arrival still has e"
