Galaxy Quest 1999

You know there is nothing bad I could ever say about this movie its just so funny and clever and I love how it embraces fandoms and conventions with both hands and delights in its piss take of sci fi meta while still being its own original universe and it also get extra credit for showing the loyal fanbase as helpful and helping to save the day rather than mocking and taking the piss like so many films do when its comes to fandom. Like when I first saw this at cinema I thought Sigourney Weaver would never work in this role but she's nails it and goes with it completely and its hilarious. Sam Rockwell also does not get enough credit in this film as he's one of the funniest characters in it and I love how he is the fans internal voice showing that this thing is terrifying and that's gross and did you guys ever watch the show? What was sad was seeing Alan Richman as he has now passed away and his performance in this film is so amazing.

My only not pick and it is very miner is I've never quite been able to wrap my head around the idea that the Thermians not understanding entertainment as writing and plays are normally the under lying basis of a any culture. Hence I have a theory that Mathesar and his people must be an off shoot of there race which the film states have been wiped out and are now creating new culture and literature from scratch. Also though they may look like adults they might in fact just been teenagers hence there innocence and difficulty understanding depiction and lies because it was not taught to them as children by there parents.

^Galaxy Quest is gold.

I just got home from seeing Colossal. It was definitely different, and not at all what I was expecting, but I liked it a lot. It was actually a much more serious film than the trailers let on to be, and there are a couple moments of tension between the main characters that is uncomfortably realistic at times. At its core, the movie is actually about alcoholism and abusive relationships, and goes in depth with some of the power plays that occur between men and women in different relationships. I very much enjoyed it, and would love to add it to my collection of sci-fi and monster movies.

That's not what I expected from the trailers. At all.

Really, though. I was expecting an action comedy with kaiju and giant robots, and instead got something that was way more real than I anticipated. Lots of character drama. Kinda sounds like this anime I know of.

Went for the theatrical cut of Fifty Shades Darker.

Definitely accomplished it's goals of being a better installment than it's predecessor. The Christian/Ana chemistry was radiant; idk why critics say it wasn't there; Christian's backstory is developed very nicely, and it wouldn't be a review without talking about the sex scenes which is what people were badmouthing the first film for having an utter lack of but they went all out on this one and it's extremely fulfilling.

Logan. Pretty much the mutant version of Road to Perdition, but it also causes mantears.

Arrival. Best sci fi of the 2010's. Loved how it took a little linguistics, physics, and philosophy and spun it into something fascinating.

Can't believe how many people into sci-fi seemed to have missed Arrival when it came out last autumn... As a former translator, I guess I was an ideal target market for the movie and facebook and YouTube did their job.

I did create a thread (second page now) and I felt all alone in it. :sniffle:

Even worse was my thread on Ted Chiang, the author of the short story on which the movie is based. Excellent speculative fiction.

Would like to hear more on Arrival, it has the "we gotta save the world" flaw, but it's a solid 8/10 for me, where Contact would be 9/10 and Close Encounters probably 10/10.

I saw it.

I don't think it was marketed very well.

Arrival, I think is the kind of movie that belongs on digital distribution. The theater model is shriveling up into multiplexes showing shared universe movies.
