Lots of great new movies coming as we head into the holiday season. Two that are must see and at your nearby theater right now are DR. STRANGE and ARRIVAL.
1st DR STRANGE staring Benedict Cumberbatch with all it’s great cinematography and special effects is a definite must see. Dr Strange a brilliant surgeon with a thriving practice until fate steps in the way and leaves him unable to operate at all. With conventional medicine unable to offer him any solution to his situation he goes on a wide quest to seek out an unconventional solution.
The search lands him in a land far from home and an individual that supposedly has the knowledge that will cure Dr Strange and allow him to get back to his ability to operate as a surgeon.
As he pursues that knowledge a whole new battle is brewing and Dr Strange is thrown smack dab in the middle of it. DR STARNGE, PG13 from Marvel Studios.
Next; The aliens have landed, in this case, all over the world and are waiting for communicating with us humans in ARRVAL. The huge, strange looking pods have been hovering all over certain cities through out the world and governments are all scrambling to try to figure out what they want. In every city and country where a pod has landed, the government has gathered its very best linguists and specialists to try to communicate with each pod and figure out just what the aliens are here for.
Are the aliens here on a peaceful venture or is their ARRIVAL more of that of a sinister act. The race is on to see who ca communicate with they first and figure out whether we should welcome them or arm against them.
In the United States the team sent to attempt to communicate with the local pod has their job cut out for them and the first meeting with the aliens is unusual and exciting for sure. The attempts to communicate are extremely interesting and are far from easy as the team has to figure out what the aliens are saying and what it really means.
All this going on while other governments are trying to arm and mount an act of war to the aliens instead. The clock is running and even though ARRIVAL doesn’t have a lot of special effects it does gives you quite a bit to ponder. ARRIVAL, PG13 from 21 Laps Entertainment.
