saw the movie "arrival" and

I saw the movie "Arrival" this morning and I liked it.....
it is a very effect movie showing the fear that will arrive
when first contact is made especially if first contact is on
this planet and not in space.......

it also shows the "me first" mentality that oftentimes
dominate human behavior and leads to serious consequences....

I thought the performances were good by Adams and Renner....
the plot had some holes in it, but nothing major like the actions
of the soldiers in the shell doesn't make sense from a soldier aspect,
the military would have tighter control over the soldiers then is shown
but hay, no biggy....

I like the communication aspect of the movie.. how it played up
communication which is a critical aspect and vastly
misunderstood part of our lives.....

all in all, I would say well worth watching....

The RNC has announced that's its changing the Republican emblem from
an elephant to an condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political
stance: a condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation,
protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others.

I was looking forward to watching it and thought it was a sci-fi flick...but it's not.

I saw this movie as similar to the Life of Pi, so I'll dub it by a more proper name : The Arrival of a Full Blown Psychosis.

For some, a mind is a really fragile thing indeed. It was kinda sad, actually.

I didn't see that one.

Maybe like Pan's Labyrinth.

Okay, yes, but there is an extra twist in Arrival.
