Arrival

Post by WisconsinSFfan »

Finally saw this today. Great movie. Probably the best SF movie in the last 5 years. If you're going to see it, avoid spoilers. It won't ruin it, but it's better if the reveals come naturally. The movie leaves you a little sad, a little amazed, and very appreciative of the life we have. A story well crafted. I'm tempted to read the short story now to see what was different and how the author crafted that.

Anyway, go see it in the theaters while it's still there. Thumbs up.

Don't worry B I will probably end up missing it too if I've not already. With kids most of my theater going is to the ever so thrilling Trolls or the edge of your seat mystery of Sing lol. I don't remember the last grown up movie I watched in theaters.
