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

Favorites Diary (2018) (13 movies items)

" Arrival feels like a short story with its subtlety, a good thing since it's based on one. I can see that slow, quiet atmosphere letting people down in the long run. It is easy to either miss concepts that are relayed in one or two offhanded lines of dialogue, or maybe feeling the sense that the significance of anything said in any of this movie was over-exaggerated. Yet it was to me a jarring existential terror. My sleepy state of mind was not holding up any defenses and I felt horrified at th"

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"
