[ACT] Your last movie?
Video 
Sling rings..... Sigh.

Just watched

ARRIVAL (2016)

Slow and plodding but not methodical. It asks a simple but dynamic question which would be a spoiler to note however I think that if others watched the movie we could have a spoiler thread and discuss the question for some time. It's a philosophy experiment with things like the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis.

I can't actually recommend the movie. It's really slow and there isn't any need. I think we're dealing with a short fun flick extended to 116 minutes to make it feature length without actually adding anything. In the end we really just have a 9.6 (repeating sixes) minute long movie that could be watched backwards or forwards. Let me know if you see it and get that reference.

This movie is based on a. novella called The Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang which I might look into reading.

The acting is okay with Renner really showing us that within him exists no range. The whole thing spotlights Amy Adams so much that no other performance really matters anyway. She does okay. The effects are quite good. It's just slow. slow slow slow slow.

Now to figure out how to use a vinculum on this board.

If you knew your whole future, would you change anything or just appreciate certain moments with more vigour?
