I must be on fireee! two post two days in a row! hahahahha I just watched this movie yesterday so I don’t want to forget. I tend to easily forget movie I watched.I love alien invasion, sci-fi movie. So that’s why I super excite for this movie. Alsoooo this movie has Amy Adams (people say she is the new Leonardo Di Caprio since she’s in all great movie and act awesomely but didn’t get recognition she deserve)
Soooo it’s start with of Amy Adams narrates story about her daughter. Wait, Adams character was call Louise. So the flash back scene of the daughter is dying of cancer and she was devastated. Then, present time! an UFO landed in US and 12 others location around the world. it just float there and open their door every 18 hours to let human enter their spaceship probably to let human chat with them. So every expert around the country try to communicate with them and ask why are you here? what is your purpose of coming here? things like that. Human is super terrified if the alien want to destroy all human.
But the thing is the language is different so this where Louise come in, she is a language lecturer and US Govt need her help to translate what the alien were saying. So Louise and Ian ( played by Jeremy Ranner) try to translate and understand the language. So after I guess a month of handwork they finally understand, what the alien were saying but using writing. It’s kind a hard to understand what they were saying since they practically make sounds only. Ooo and the aliens were call Heptapods. They kind a look like giant squids.
So when the finally get to ask the aliens why they are here, the aliens said Give weapons? aaaa I don’t remember! but something like that and that result in chaos, human get all defensive and ready to war! I guess that’s why we will always be the under develop planet -_-
Okayyy that’s all… watch it, read it since this movie is also based on a novel title, Story of your life. This movie definitely no Interstellar or Sign but you can definitely feels the connection. Nowadays when I watch movie, I try to imagine what if I was reading the book instead of watching the movie? well this movie is superb as a book.
