OMG, another movie about ETs coming to Earth !!!
If the gatekeepers of classic screen sci-fi are at all anxious about the stamp that director Denis Villeneuve might put on his upcoming Blade Runner project - a sequel coming 35 years after the iconic original - then the class, intelligence and cool visual style of Arrival should provide reassurance. How refreshing to watch an alien contact movie in which no cities are destroyed or monuments toppled, and no adversarial squabbling distracts the human team from the challenges of their complex interspecies encounter.
Anchored by an internalized performance from Amy Adams rich in emotional depth, this is a grownup sci-fi drama that sustains fear and tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss.

Just a thought - these guys (the ETs) aren't going to be stupid, right?
Anyone watching us knows by now that the US thinks we are in charge of this planet, and the earthly powers that be do not "cooperate" with anyone, ever.
That means either we will attack them, or they will attack us. Logic dictates there can be no other outcome.
Of course, their "attacks" may be rather non-violent. Perhaps they'll just lobotomize Hillary and her ilk to get them out of the way.
