Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on November 14, 2016

arrivalArrival, the aliens-arriving-on-Earth movie with Amy Adams not to be confused with the aliens-arriving-on-Earth movie The Arrival with Charlie Sheen, is at the same time highly engrossing and kind of a letdown, which is a weird combination. They did a great job building up mystery and presenting new elements in ways that made me want to know more, and the ultimate resolution pretty much made sense in the context of everything and resolved any plot threads I was concerned about in a novel way, and yet I felt somewhat unsatisfied by it. I’m glad I saw it and I enjoyed the experience but I don’t want to strongly recommend it, which seems like a contradiction, but it’s how I felt about it.
