    The book was better, this is more of a love story than a scifi, But I'm with you Captain if it is about space I will watch it, hell I'm still (re)watching "the Martian"..LOL

    A smart, beautiful looking film with a praiseworthy change of message from the usual science fiction films.

    Had to watch this again, since a quality version surfaced awhile ago.

    It still did not bring the anticipated excitement, but it was not too bad.
    I like the different angle they had with the aliens and their agenda.
    They had alot hanging on the balance, if them language techs did not get this figured out, then humanity would have been doomed.
    We did not know it, but Amy Adams character had the answers years ago, or visions years ago... and did not even know .... That was a kind of confusing as it went, but was a major part of the story, as we found out.

    Not my favourite aliens flic, but was much better in this quality version.

    It was ok, but Close Encounters... and Contact did the story better. I think the xenophobia was overblown, how long does it take to figure out there was nothing going to happen if the visitors were doing anything. Realistically, would the USA just send a mere colonel to command the site, while the Chinese send their top general to theirs?

    SPOILERS.....SPOILERS...SPOILERS

    I liked this a bit better than most folks here. The movie was pretty complex. It took time and reflection on my part to realize the flashbacks weren't flashbacks but were Louise's "contemporary" experiences, since the aliens had given her the power/ability to immerse herself simultaneously in the past, present and future. (To the aliens, time is asynchronous.) This, of course, is how Louise got the information from the Chinese general that ultimately saved the day. She stepped into the "future" to get information to use in the "present."

    It was pretty profound when she asked Ian if he'd choose to live a life if he already knew every twist and turn it would take. She, in fact, was doing just that: She knew they would break up. She knew their daughter would die. She knew when she told Ian of her acquired ability, it would end their relationship. All in all...pretty cool...

    I liked the visual depiction of the aliens, too: Just enough to make them salient but not a CGI tour de force, as is usually the case.
