A pet is important to most people regardless of the species. A friend of mine has a parrot since the 70's. His death would devastate him, but it's only a bird, right?

Agreed, birds don't matter.

You wouldn't say that if you met this bird. It's got more brains then some people.

hahahahaha. pretty much. And who actually thinks Mallrats is garbage? That's a damn funny film. Hell Jay and Silent Bob was even good. People hating on Kevin Smith? I mean I get thinking he might be overrated but actually just out and out hating his movies is weird. The snobbery in this thread is just weird to me.

I finished watching Sherlock recently. Really fun show, though season three was kinda weird and random.

I also finished season 4 of Bates Motel. Kinda intrigued where season 5 is going since it's the last. Also, season 5 happens about the same time as the original series but set in the present time. Rihanna is playing Marion Crane which I find odd. Unnecessary casting in my opinion.

"Arrival" blew me away.

I hadn't seen a better movie since "The Revenant" and it's not close. I think it stands alone as my favorite sci-fi movie of all time right now, but I need more time to process what I just saw in order to confirm.

It just has no seams outside of that one rapid progression that had to be made. I'd like to think that I've seen a movie or two in my life and it's the very best compliment I could ever give to a film. This thing is as seamless as a motion picture could ever hope to be.

I know I'm going to watch it over and over again.

It's all about having nipples, man. We prefer animals with nipples. Here's a handy list:

#1-Animals with nipples
#2-Animals with no nipples, but nice features like feathers or a house on their back
.

.
#3419-Animals that cast a web and/or can kill you with a bite

So cheesy - the plot unravels in such a convenient and contrived way. It's got some pretty half-baked sci fi ideas that don't really get developed beyond a surface level. The characters are not really that interesting and hard to care for.

Pretty uninspiring film for something that's about a monumental event like Aliens visiting earth. Not saying the film needs to be monumental, but it's totally underwhelming.

Arrival is linguistics porn. You either get a huge ***** or find the whole idead completely dumb.

I'm sort of in between on that one. I can see why people find the movie lame, but I still got sort of a half-***** watching it.

I was also kinda sorta lukewarm on Arrival. I thought it was good, but not great

I watched Hacksaw Ridge over the weekend, now THAT was a terrible movie. Being neither religious nor american made this movie feel like a complete joke.

I think La La Land should win everything

and while i'm at it, I watched The Thing and Escape from New York too, those were great

I found its discussion of linguistics and communication to be incredibly shallow as well.

Saw Lego Batman yesterday.

There's two hours of my life I'll never get back.

Moonlight should win all of the Oscars. Really was the best American film of the year.

And I see you weren't fooled either. Despite the movie titles, porn is not exactly 'deep'.

Dirty joking aside, I still think the movie had some important qualities. The flow was great, not many useless scenes and you have to give them credit for turning a movie about aliens into a discussion about linguistics, whatever the fantasms they put in that scenario.

But yeah, as we speak, somewhere, there's a grad student in literature ************ to that movie.

I just found it went from "WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?" to "I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING" way too quickly.

Agreed. And as I said: just like in a porn movie, the events were unfolding really fast.

I could go on and on but, really, it will always come down to that: some highly acclaimed directors actually do porn movies. They are great at targeting a wide audience and giving them a highly fantasized version of how things could have happened.

Typical Mel Gibson nonsense. Awful movie with unreal cinematics.

I have not seen Arrival yet, but Revenant was nothing to write home about. Have you seen 'Tzameti' & 'L'Heritage'? Those are good movies.
