I know I’m like months late for this, but I finally sat down this afternoon to watch The Arrival.
It’s one of those movies where you aren’t quite sure what the point was in the end, but it does leave you thinking.
The part of the main character was expertly played by Amy Adams. Choosing to birth a child knowing fully well that in the future they would die of a horrible cancer is something I can more women doing than men, which was also portrayed quite adeptly by their divorce.
I dunno, I’d love to hear other opinions on the movie. I immediately followed it up with two episodes of Planet Earth II tonight with the family, thus deflating the cud chewing on The Arrival, but I still loved the movie. I’ll have to watch it again and see how I feel.
Other than that, busy day finalizing up some details on my latest project’s outlines, and I started writing the first draft/introduction to it!
Unfortunately, I hit a snag in that I was so overjoyed at the world building that I failed to notice that it matched on a few points to something else out there already. I was so caught up in if I could do it, (thank you Ian Malcolm,) that I didn’t stop to think if I should.
So I need to take a few things back to the drawing board on this.
