"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."

Arrival

“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, is Arrival, a fantastic story about alien life interacting with humanity that really boils down to a mother retelling her life story to her dying daughter.   The film’s story expanse is global, but its soul and precision-like focus is on a deeply felt personal one. Amy Adams, one of our greatest working and most versatile actresses currently working, leads Arrival with an empathetic, confident” 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 being the only disappointment.

*Anyways let's see if this is as good as I hear or if it's just not my taste.

Pros:

*The way they start the story really pulls you in.

*It's quite visually striking while at the same time being very simplistic.

*The sound mixing is pretty intriguing.

*I loved the idea of this having a l” read more

“Arrival, es hermosa, puedo decir sin tener miedo, que es una de las mejores peliculas del 2016, y una gran ejemplo de como hacer una historia compleja, pero digerible para los que no entiendan o se les hace difícil comprender la ciencia ficción en el cine. No les quiero decir nada sobre lo que va este film, ya que lo tienen que vivir, tal como lo fue con Gravity o Odisea espacial 2001.

Ah si, y aparece mi país natal...que luego dicen que terminan en disturbios xD” read more

30 Favorite Films of 2016 (30 movies items)

"Another masterful film from Dennis Vilenouve who just seems to get better with each film. He's absolutely one of my favorite filmmakers working today. Sicario was as flawless as films get, and Arrival isn't too far behind. Amy Adams is without fault in her performance, speaking so much through facial expressions, and raw heartbreak. The nonlinear story structure makes for a fascinating puzzle box, the more pieces you put together, the more Arrival continues to impress and deepen on many levels. "
