It’s chilly and drizzling outside and I’m still fighting this cold so today is going to be a lazy day. Movies and popcorn and probably some hot tea.
Last night we watched The Arrival, with Amy Adams and I was impressed. The movie is about a linguist tapped to figure out and translate the language of recently landed aliens. It’s imaginative and it made me contemplate language use and development for hours afterward. It also had a neat little twist, though not quite the gut punch of say, the Sixth Sense’s shock ending, but since the entire movie is pretty low key the twist worked and left me slightly stunned. Overall a fine film, but put on your thinking cap before you start it.
Have a great day, friends.
