  • Published on Nov 11, 2016
  • Aliens come to Earth....A premise done a thousand times before in cinema, but the path in discovering why are they here is what makes this one different. Here's my review of "Arrival"

    It's kinda refreshing to see a first contact film with aliens that *don't* want to kill us. That's something you hardly ever see.

    Just saw this movie!! 2019!! Really good true sci-fi movie! If you like real sci fi that isn't bogged down with action for cheap thrills and fills, you want a good "thinking " movie with excellent acting and plot, this is for you!!

    The movie has one flaw only, but it's a big one. The central sci-fi element that everything rests on is ridiculous.
    Ignore that, since otherwise, this borders on being a _perfect_ movie. It's one of the best sci-fi movies ever made. Ever.

    Great cinematography, a simple concept (in theory) that allows the average viewer to understand the implications and follow along but enough complexity for tons of theorycraft, and overall well-paced. Excellent piece in my opinion, definitely worth a watch.

    its well done, i mean when/if aliens ever come to earth, communicating with them would probably be very very hard, which is something many people dont think about

    I'm late to the party but ill throw my opinion out cus why not?
    I study a STEM major. I say this because, in my opinion, majors like English, psychology, sociology are pointless. there is no real need for them. I study mechanical engineering with a strong background in math and physics.
    this movie completely ignores THAT side of the story. there is a scene in this movie where Amy Adams erases a board full of mathematical equation to explain a sentence. That was a cringy, eye-rolling scene. The purpose of this movie is to say that STEM majors aren't the only important ones.

    but i didn't like how they explained the twist at the end, in the climax of the movie we understand everything, thus showing us in the end what we understand in the climax made me feel the director think we are dumb and could not understand the movie just from the climax

    This film is overrated af. It was boring, slow and Amy Adams character revelation was just cringe inducing plus the two leads talk like they were whispering the whole time. Throw in some cliches and it really isn't this masterpiece everyone's making out to be. I'd give it 3 out of stars max...

  • Movie Man Reviews

    Really? You thought Arrival portrayed humans and human nature accurately. Yeah maybe in the first 2 acts when they showed humans being scared, crazy, violent, distrusting, and stupid but then when she just calls some Chinese military leader says some crap about his dead wife and viola problem solved, some time later humanity is united and working in harmony bra blah blah... yeah no that's not a realistic portrayal of humans. Its actually quite unrealistic and illogical which is exactly what this movie was.

    Its like "Close Encounters" but with the style of "Signs".
    The alien interaction had to be inspired by indoor aquarium/sanctuaries.

    i just saw it and i never seen a movie with more questions raised than answered. I get the movie is trying to show how humans would handle such a situation, but it's done in the most vague way possible. Why is abbot dying? where from? How exactly did they decipher the alien language? Do aliens read english all of the sudden? What did she say in Mandarin over the phone to the chinese general? was hannah her past or her future? or both? How did she suddenly see into the future? What was the aliens purpose? What do they need human help for every 3000 years? Why did the ships eerily tilt over for no apparent reason? Why did they leave again while NOTHING was solved? .... imma quit now because honestly.. why do i care? this movie gave me nothing to care for and my god it was sllloooooooowwwww. (kay i'll stop, for real)

  • duckster181
    duckster181 Year ago

    This was a TRUE Sci-Fi film, on par with the best like 2001 a Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Gattaca, Day the Earth Stood Still (1950's one), The Planet of the Apes (1960's one) where its actual Science used to create a fiction that is Scientifically/realistically possible. One of the best movies to come out in decads

  • pdanderspetea

    It was an interesting movie.... but I feel pretty overrated. The ridiculous time-travel magic language is just silly in a feature length film. I feel like it would have been better as something like a twilight zone episode. The whole military/china plot was just stupid (and supposedly not in the short story... which I'm guessing is actually pretty good since this is a really cool concept for a short story).
    I feel the same way about Arrival as I do about Interstellar. Both movies that pitched themselves as "hard science fiction" films that ultimately devolved into stilly magical nonsense at the end. I don't think either film was terrible, but neither were they the "super smart and scientific" films they were portrayed as.
    The Martian on the other hand, that was an excellent film with "mostly" solid science.
    If you want to go more into the fantastical then Contact is another film that does what these two films are aiming at better.

    Everybody is saying this movie is a "masterpiece" because it dabbles with the thought of non-linear time. I didn't find the movie to be particularly good, I mean it was alright, but far from a masterpiece.
