Movie Review: Arrival Is a Scifi Masterpiece You Won't Stop Thinking About.

Germain Lussier

Arrival is the kind of science fiction film we dream of. It’s got big stars, a bigger concept, and the longer it goes, the more it demands of its audience. The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful. You rarely have a clue where it’s going—but once it gets there, you won’t be able to get it out of your head.

Based on Ted Chiang’s short story Story Of Your Life, Arrival stars Amy Adams as Dr. Louise Banks, an international language expert who is called in to help translate the apparent language of a mysterious alien species who has peacefully landed 12 ships all over the globe. This has caused quite the international crisis, as you can imagine. She’s then joined by a theoretical physicist named Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner), and together they engage the aliens to try to answer all the biggest questions: Why are you here? What do you want? Where do you come from?

As I recall there were two arrival movies, the first with Charlie Sheen which was excellent in my opinion and the second equally as entertaining. So is this a new arrival movie?

Well, I think this is the first one based on Chiang's short story?

What Do the Aliens in "Arrival" Look Like?

Carlos Huante tested many iterations with director Denis Villeneuve before they settled on the final design for Arrival, which came out this week and follows a linguist (Amy Adams) who's trying to understand what these visitors want. The creature artist settled on characters that tap into conflicting emotions: They're serene yet daunting and huge yet indistinct. They're heptapods (they have seven legs) and they look like a cross between a giant hand and a squid; their "fingers" resemble starfish that emit an inky, smoky substance, which is how they express their entirely visual language.

Went to see this today. IT IS AWESOME! It has some unusual twists and turns. You MUST pay close attention. There is discussion about how brain function can impact our perception of time, and our ability to move thru time. It may give some folks a headache! Our military, and the world's governments pretty much react as one might expect. All in all, it makes for a fascinating movie!

Unexpected 'Arrival': Humanity's Not Ready for Aliens

By Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
November 15, 2016

The prospect of aliens visiting Earth has been percolating through human thought for decades, thanks to countless sci-fi books and movies, such as the newly released film "Arrival." But it's still not clear how we would deal with the real thing.

Astronomers have drawn up a series of recommended actions to be taken after the detection of a signal from a faraway alien civilization, but it seems that no such effort has been made with regard to E.T.'s arrival here, said veteran alien hunter Seth Shostak.

"I don't know of any protocol if they land," said Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California.

"I've never heard of any such thing, and I'd be surprised if there was one," Shostak told Space.com. "But who knows what's in the bowels of the Pentagon?"

The U.S. military devises an incredible array of contingency plans — the Pentagon mapped out an invasion of Canada in the 1920s and '30s, after all, as part of a hypothetical war with the United Kingdom — so it is indeed possible that some kind of alien-fighting blueprint is locked away in a filing cabinet in Washington, D.C.

However, if the new arrivals turn out to be hostile or predatory, even the most ingenious battle plan would almost certainly fail, Shostak said. Any extraterrestrial civilization capable of journeying from its own star system to Earth would be far more technologically advanced than humanity is, he noted.

"It would be like taking on the Roman legions with the U.S. Air Force," Shostak said.

Some thinkers have speculated that the nations of the world would come together to fight off this existential threat to human civilization, but Shostak isn't so sure.

"I just don't see it. Nothing else has ever prompted that kind of a reaction," he said. "Nuclear weaponry is an existential threat, too, and I haven't noticed a lot of worldwide thinking that, 'We've all got to get together and stop this.'"

International cooperation might be even more difficult in the event of a SETI detection, or the arrival of friendly aliens on Earth.

"There's immediately going to be competition — 'Well, these guys are in touch with the aliens. We've got to get in there. Who knows what sort of good stuff the aliens might be telling them?'" Shostak said.

It's not clear whether clearly established protocols could help smooth such potential trouble spots. Take the SETI-detection protocol, which basically instructs scientists to double-check the signal; tell other researchers and prominent organizations, such as the United Nations, of the discovery; and not broadcast a message back to E.T. without proper "international consultation."

"We know from experience — from what happens when there's a false alarm, like this Russian signal of a couple of months ago — what really happens is that the protocols aren't even looked at," Shostak said, referring to a possible detection apparently caused by an old Soviet military satellite. "Nobody cares. What really happens is the media start calling up the scientists."

The relatively muted reactions to SETI false alarms also provide a clue about how humanity would respond to a bona fide detection, Shostak said. In short, the odds of mass hysteria are pretty slim, he said.

"People aren't rioting in the streets" after false alarms, he said.

The arrival of alien spaceships on Earth would present a much more immediate potential threat than a SETI detection, of course. So how would humanity react to a possible invasion? We may just have to wait and see.

Swamprat, if that is a picture of you, I just wanted to say hello.

You are almost a double of my friend who was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, and he never leaves his house without his Vietnam Veteran's cap.

The Sheen "Arrival" movie was actually pretty good. Have watched it a couple of time.

Can't wait for this one to hit cable. I never go to the movies anymore. Far prefer "Cafe Raf " with a stop / rewind button for those times when I need a scotch refill or b-room break.
