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

Notes:
*I've heard this is really good, but it's a slow burner.
*So I have been sort of skeptical to check it out, but I decided to go ahead and check it out.
*I mean the cast is pretty good.
*Denis Villeneuve also directed Prisoners and Sicario which were both pretty darn good.
*I have seen all of Eric Heisserer's movies so far with the Nightmare on Elm Street remake... 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 (18 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 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"

"Arrival" Review

“"Arrival" o "La Llegada" es una película sobre alienigenas que no destaca realmente en algo a diferencia de muchas otras películas de su mismo estilo. Entonce, ¿Porque es tan aclamada? Simple, por su mensaje, el mensaje de "La comunicación es mas importante que el conflicto", ya saben, un mensaje que se enseña desde niños pero aquí se trata de implementar de una manera mas madura, junto a una narrativa densa en contraste a las películas de alienigenas y conflictos armados que uno suele acostumbrar. La película cuenta también con excelentes efectos especiales, los cuales si bien no son muy cuantiosos, realmente se sienten como parte de la atmósfera presentada. Otro punto a su favor es el WorldBuilding, es decir, como a medida que avanza la película vamos conociendo mas sobre la ” read more

20 Favorite Movies From 2016 (20 movies items)

" "Language is the first weapon drawn in a conflict." I love smart Sci-Fi movies, and I was having high hopes for this movie. It didn't really met my high expectations, but I still love it very much. And on my second viewing, when I knew what it is, and what it isn't I even liked it more. I think it's a well made movie from one of my favorite directors, and Amy Adams was great too."
