    Saw Arrival, was good but not spectacular. But I really loved that it was a first contact movie not focused on shooting (or action) for once.

    That would be Deus Ex Machina, as far as SF genre goes

    My main criticism was that the romantic subplot felt forced and I was not entirely convinced by the main lead. But it's just my opinion. It was new, refreshing and coherent as a whole.

    It's a love it or hate it movie, I loved it, a friend of mine with not too dissimilar taste hated it.

    My only complaint...
      Spoiler:
    the aliens educating us at the end, getting humans to work together: it's still an anthropisation. The beauty of the short story stands also in the complete and utter alien-ness of the aliens, which highlights the difficulty and total change of mind needed for understanding them, and therefore the protagonists' change.

    I missed the circular symmetry stuff too, it's difficult to do in a movie though, so I can live with that.

    Seems Hermoine Granger has made herself an awful lot of money from B&tB. Like, serious money.

    Kinda makes her passing on La La Land to be in it not so silly after all.

    Looks extremely predictable and derivative to me so far. I might watch it if reviews tell me that there is some unexpected plot twist in it (seems unlikely though).
    Made the mistake of watching the trailer, it does look utterly predictable. The Thing in space, gee what will happen. I do enjoy a well-executed genre movie tho, so will give it a watch when its been out for a while i guess. The cast seems competent, and the setting adds an extra serving of claustrophobia.
    I did go see this tonight - it is overall predictable and derivative. But it is also quite well executed overall I thought and not boring except for one or two brief character moments that are overlong (given the lack of character depth). I'd recommend to see it on a big screen, since the effects are also quite well done and look impressive. Was very slightly annoyed at the quite obvious wire work "weightlessness", I've seen this better elsewhere.

    $700 million in the first 2 weeks is impressive indeed.

    Does she own her likeness for dolls and merch and stuff though?

    Isnt that where people like Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher lost out on all the Star Wars cash? (could be wrong here)

    Thats why Alec Guiness was a genius btw. he negotiated a royalty agreement rather than a set pay, which was snapped up to get him on board as the studio didnt think it'd make much money at all.
    From 2009:
    "Sources close to the Star Wars franchise say Guinness continues to take two per cent from the gross box office, which stands at £2.7billion"

    Also, the agreement included his estate, which is STILL collecting 2% of box office.

    spot on Hamill was naive and took a cash payment, were as alec guiness took a tiny pay and a larger cut of merchandising and made a killing.

    Saw Resident Evil: The Last Chapter. Was very very disappointing, and that's with low expectations because I saw all the previous ones and thought I knew what I was getting myself into. I didn't.
