Boy, was I surprised as I was looking at my neighbors' Christmas decorations, ranging from various Disney Characters, like penguins, characters from "Frozen," Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, even a sly looking fox, and those little hot-dog dogs. Some people even had green, red and black dots projected onto their homes and lawn.

‘Arrival’ is intelligent sci-fi movie; doesn’t need effects

"Arrival" is a consistently well-acted, intelligently constructed sci-fi drama that cares much more about character and story instead of mindless special effects. This is one of the brainier, more introspective movies to come out this genre since the likes of "Signs" and "Contact."
