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

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"ARRIVAL - ABBOTT AND COSTELLO In sci-fi films in which alien lifeforms play a significant part, filmmakers have a delicate line to walk between the awe-inspiring and the silly. Since we have yet to make contact with any extra-terrestrials in real life, this pretty much gives the filmmaker free-reign to create any kind of creature they like. This can be a blessing and a curse. For every inventive, iconic face-hugger with the power to elicit shock and wonder, there's a bulbous-headed cliché that"

My Top 10 Favourite Movies of 2016 (10 movies items)

"To my delight, this movie actually delivered the fresh new take on first contact that the trailer promised. :) It's refreshing in that it's not a typical alien invasion story. It uses language as its tool rather than hostility, and the goal is to prevent war instead of inducing it. The cinematography is top-notch, and all the characters seem very real. There is clearly mistrust, as no one is sure what to expect from the communication attempts, but there's no stereotypical obstinate higher-up cha"

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (378 movies items)

"11.2. (Kirjasto/BD) Voisin varmasti kirjoittaa kaiken merkityksellisen ja merkityksettömän Arrivalin symboliikasta, maailmanrauhasta ja olympialaista, mutta en jaksa kuluttaa aikaani sellaiseen. Joten kirjoitan vain, että tässä oli hyvä tunnelma ja etenkin musiikeissa oli painostavaa uhkaa. Aikajanalla kikkailtiin, ja se oli väsyneessä mielentilassa vähän haasteellista. Villeneuve lienee kuitenkin tämän hetken omaperäisimpiä ohjaajia Pohjois-Amerikasta."
