Movies

Posted Mar 1 2017, 5:01 pm in , ,

I enjoy movies as much as I enjoy books. I like a good story. I haven’t watched the Oscar Awards in years, and many years I don’t see many of the movies that are nominated for the award. This year has been an exception. Too my surprise I have seen nearly all of the best-picture nominees. Even though the awards have been handed out, during the month of March, I’m going to give my opinion of the nominated movies I have seen. I’m going to go in alphabetical order. That means I’m going to start with Arrival.

My husband and I went to this movie because our go-to critic liked it. It is a sci-fi movie of sorts. Amy Adams plays a linguist who is assigned the task of communicating with the aliens who have arrived in pod-like space ships that hover above the earth’s surface. The movie delves into metaphors of life. I like a story that makes sense. This movie, in many ways, did not make sense to me. I guess that’s why I’m not a movie critic. I just didn’t get the ending. It didn’t complete the story for me.

If you have seen this movie, what did you think?

    I loved it but stayed confused throughout the whole movie the way it kept going from past to present and sometimes future. I was really confused at the end too. Maybe I need to watch it again.

    • Mary Ellen,
      You’re not the only one who was confused. When my husband and I were leaving the theater, there was a couple we passed and one was saying to the other, “Did you get the ending?”
