  • 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"

    I'm a huge sci-fi guy, but this movie just did nothing for me, Contact was pretty similar, Amy Adams is good not great Renner is just there, it's way too slow and the payoff was not worth the wait

    Jay Sony 3 months ago wtf was the complete message from all 12 pods... really didn’t feel this movie AT ALL. Kinda pretentious tbh

    Funny how he mentions he associates with Jeremy Renner's character and then talks about how the last act takes some "leaps."
    Love it. Language vs. Science the true dichotomy of our time.

    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!!

  • VeryEvilPettingZoo

    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.

  • Alexandros Mograine

    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.

    Actually I'm disappointed that 500k viewed it just like most other videos where you literally sit one spot and just ramble on about nonesense. It's pretty obvious most fan base here on something I mean everyone just discussing how you look in video wtf.

    Just watched it. Seems really inspired by Slaughterhouse-Five's aliens and even the books structure. Could be wrong.
    Edit: Holy sh*t Kermode agrees.

    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

    It would have made sense if the aliens had opposable thumbs, as you need them to hold anything.

    Are you all on meth? This movie sucked ...why ? The ending!

    I loved it, my second favorite movie of the year behind Hacksaw Ridge, i can't stand all the people giving it shit because they were expecting Independence Day 3 or something, cause for fucks sake people, not every alien movie needs to be a big budget sci-fi war movie

  • Gravuuna

    I watched it literally just now, and I was bored out of my mind. Also the movie isn't as smart as it thinks it is.

    First you r blown away by this movie but the more you think about it, the more dumb it gets exactly like interstellar. sending scientists to raise entire humanity on their own my ass.

  • Darksider95
    Darksider95 2 years ago

    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...

    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.
