Arrival (2016) (16th Apr 17 at 10:08pm UTC)
This was a pretty good movie. The trailers made it look worse and didn't do it justice. I enjoyed that they made the aliens look like gray versions of "Kang & Kodos" from the Simpsons:

Good soundtrack music too. I'm looking forward to seeing what this director does with Blade Runner 2.

Your review is the first positive review I've seen. Everyone else who saw it told me they thought it was bad.

I enjoyed it but I can see how it might be slow moving to some people. It held my attention though. I thought it was better than "Contact" or "Close Encounters."

Contact was one of my favorite Sci-fi movies. I don't see how you can put it in the same sentence as Close Encounters (which sucked).

I tried to watch "Close Encounters" again and it doesn't age well. I checked out because the characters annoyed me.

What did you think of the ending to Contact? I'll see any Robert Zemekis movie.
