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 such a shame that it didn't turn out to be really amazing after all. I mean, I thought it was visually really neat, Amy Adams gave a solid performance and I really loved the fact tha... 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

“Despite being critically acclaimed, 'Arrival' is another one of those films that is praised to the heavens with critics but has wildly divided audiences judging from the nature of both the positivity and negativity. Though it has to be said that the positive reviewers have been far more mature than the negative ones, many of which to me being disgustingly condescending.

'Arrival' is a very different sci-fi film, and one can definitely see why people will love it and be moved by it as well as seeing why people will hate it and be alienated. To me, 'Arrival' is not as good as reputed and is not a masterpiece, but even if it didn't do much for me it would have gotten a 4 at least. From personal opinion there are far worse films out there that are far more deserving of 1/10, and it w” read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" Well, the millenium's answer to the 1997 sci-fi thinker Contact, has made it's arrival. However, Arrival (not to be confused with The Arrival, a 1996 movie of the same theme but with a much darker tone) still has enough within it's own concept of more "realistic" close encounters to give it it's own signature and allow the film to stand alone in the "we come in peace" sub-genre of science fiction. A "big" movie with a "small" cast, led by a strong performance by Amy Adams as an expert linguis"

" Notes: At some point, according to IMDb, this was the best movie released in 2016 (of course, it didn't last though) so it definitely had some potential. It's such a shame that it didn't turn out to be really amazing though. I mean, 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 on"
