Arrival Review: The Earth is under a great threat

Arrival Review: The Earth is under a great threat

Planet Earth is thrown into chaos when 12 mysterious, extra-terrestrial craft appear around the world. Their inhabitants want to talk, so it’s up to linguistics professor Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) to try to decipher their mind-bending language before global panic turns into inter-species war. If you need a deeply thoughtful and impressive new take on a familiar old genre (and in this era of identikit sequels, we clearly do), then Denis Villeneuve is your…

Arrival is deeply human, superbly realized sci-fi

Arrival is deeply human, superbly realized sci-fi

You can stop staring at the skies. They’ve arrived. Arrival movie that begin with confounding aliens on the loose have been around for awhile (at least since 1951’s “Man From Planet X” and “The Day the Earth Stood Still”) and they invariably share a family resemblance even if the space visitors themselves never look the same way twice. Where do these beings come from, baffled scientists and frightened government officials inevitably want to know. Are…

Arrival – Amy Adams has a sublime word with visitors from outer space

Arrival – Amy Adams has a sublime word with visitors from outer space

Arthur C Clarke famously said there are just two possibilities: that we are alone in the universe, or we aren’t, and both are equally terrifying. The first terror is more challenging to put on Arrival movie, but director Denis Villeneuve brings the second to life with this wacky and audacious contact sci-fi – and makes it something other than terror. Screenwriter Eric Heisserer has adapted the novella Story of Your Life by the SF author Ted Chiang;…

All the reasons given why Arrival is the best movie of 2016

All the reasons given why Arrival is the best movie of 2016

Here are 11 reasons why Arrival, the astonishing sci-fi drama starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner and directed by Denis Villeneuve, is currently the best film of 2016: 1) It’s as emotionally intriguing, immediately from the beginning, as any film since Pixar’s Up (2009). Pixar might never be topped for its ability to move an audience to tears within the first five minutes of a film, but this opening sequence comes close. 2) The visual design of the alien…

Arrival – What Are The Aliens Up To?

Arrival – What Are The Aliens Up To?

In what’s probably the first science-fiction film — Georges Méliès’s 1902 marvel “A Trip to the Moon” — a group of astronomers lands in the Man in the Moon’s eye. They’re soon taken prisoner by moon men, but a quick-witted astronomer clobbers the king and they escape, with one earthling vanquishing moon men with an umbrella. Humans have been zapping extraterrestrials ever since. It’s so easy to battle against the unknown, at least as films…

Arrival 2017 movie- Intriguing Alien Alphabet

Arrival 2017 movie- Intriguing Alien Alphabet

Arrival  2017 movie is, to be sure, an alien flick. But under that sci-fi cover is a movie about communication, and the effort needed to understand someone (or, in this case, something) who looks and speaks differently than you do. In Arrival  movie, this patient work applies to linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams), who is called to Montana, by the US Military, to contact with an alien race known as the “heptapods.” (Heads up: Minor spoilers lie ahead.) The aliens write with “logograms,”…

Arrival: Heartfelt Alien-contact Movie Communicates Spectacular Ideas

Arrival: Heartfelt Alien-contact Movie Communicates Spectacular Ideas

Arrival movie 2017 is both heartfelt and very entertaining, and it brings back hope for sci-fi movie, which has been lost since the overwrought disappointments of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and Jeff Nichols’s Midnight Special. Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi contact drama is dreamy, freaky and audacious. Arrival movie skirts the edge of absurdity as anything like it must but still manages to keep the story clear. The movie includes a big flourish in the manner of early movies by M. Night…

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere review: Thrilling, Intense and Unsettlingly Hopeful

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere review: Thrilling, Intense and Unsettlingly Hopeful

To non-fans, it’s most likely inevitable to assume that after seven seasons and 99 episodes, The Walking Dead has outstayed its welcome since debuting back in 2010 – a notion probably matched by even the most dedicated fan following the last year’s slower-paced run. Concerns for season eight were, as a consequence, rather rife but cast them aside: the US series has returned with a taut, thrilling and disarmingly optimistic outing that will silence any questions surrounding…

It is Worthy Watching Anglina Jolie in Her Salt

Angelina Jolie continues to prove that she can handle guns, grenades and the bad guys even if the story line is implausible in her action-thriller of Salt. In the movie, her character Evelyn Salt, are perpetually in motion and that’s a good thing for its own sake since it keeps audiences from dwelling on how unapologetically preposterous the plot in question is. From start to finish, Salt movie 2010 is the very definition of a solid summer…

Film Review: Netflix’s Death Note 2017 with Nat Wolff

Film Review: Netflix’s Death Note 2017 with Nat Wolff

I’m not sure who Death Note 2017 movie is for. The new movie, now available on Netflix, has two really great hooks from two entirely different aspects: To start off, it’s an adaptation of an internationally popular manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, which in turn was adapted into an internationallly popular anime sage. (Which you can also find on Netflix.) Moreover, it’s the latest film from Adam Wingard, who has made a name for himself making…

The Walking Dead: The Best Walking Dead Villain To Date, According To The Series’ Fans

The Walking Dead: The Best Walking Dead Villain To Date, According To The Series’ Fans

The Walking Dead boasts one of TV’s most outspoken fanbases, whether it’s talking about how much something is loved or despised. So there’s clearly no better way to find out who the show’s very best villain ultimately is than to ask the fans themselves. Just such a feat was performed, and when the dust had finally settled across the walker-strewn lands, the one antagonist still standing was none other than Shane Walsh, the show’s first quasi-traditional big bad….

The Walking Dead Missing Characters That Could Probably Make A Return In Season 8

The Walking Dead Missing Characters That Could Probably Make A Return In Season 8

The famous TV series The Walking Dead has officially marked its return to the airwaves for Season 8, and the premiere made it quite obvious that the all-out war between Negan and Rick’s forces is only just the beginning. Rick and Co. have every reason to do everything in their power to take out the Saviors, and the attack on the Sanctuary in the premiere almost certainly motivated Negan to seek some revenge. The stage is set for the possible…

Dunkirk full movie Is a Tour de Force War Movie, Both Sweeping and Intimate

Dunkirk full movie Is a Tour de Force War Movie, Both Sweeping and Intimate

Dunkirk movie, directed by Christopher Nolan, recounts an early harrowing campaign in World War II that took place months after Germany invaded Poland and weeks after Hitler’s forces started rolling into the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France. Dunkirk full movie has characteristically complex and condensed vision of war. In a movie, that is insistently humanizing despite its monumentality, a balance that is as much a political choice as an aesthetic one. The movie also enriches the texture of the image as…
