Weekend Viewing

Saw two movies this weekend: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Arrival. Both were entertaining- well worth the price of admission.

If you need to choose just one, I would decide based on who is going:

If you’re going with children, 14 or under, go see Fantastic Beasts.

If you’re going with adults, or teenagers, go see Arrival. 

Both films are moving and well made. Arrival is more atmospheric and philosophical. Arrival is also heavier, emotionally, but in the best possible way.

If I had the cash to see another of these movies, right now, it’d be Arrival. 

Arrival is one of the best science fiction films in decades. Thoughtful, tense, and emotionally satisfying. Amy Adams is phenomenal. Although I know it doesn’t often happen, her performance deserves an Academy Award nomination; at the very least. Subtle, powerful, and engaging . Jeremy Renner does yeoman’s work as supoorting cast.

All in all, Arrival is worth your time. The film will not let you down .
