#21- The Lost Post

Arrival (2016) 

Story time: I just finished a 2500 word write up of Arrival. It was thoughtful and intelligent and truly one of my favorite pieces for one of my favorite movies. However, when I went to publish, the website that I use crashed and now that post is gone, reverted back to its rough draft version meaning I lost about five hours of work. I've never been this mad at a website. (IDK maybe FoxNews or Breitbart) I don't have it in me to go back and rewrite everything. Not sure I could even if I wanted to. So here's what I'm going to do. I'm giving you the roughest flow of consciousness bullet points of said missing post about the genius that is Arrival

  • Amy Adams is a treasure and perfect in this movie.

  • Dennis Villanueva is one of the greatest living directors and has my wallet in his hands for all time.

  • It's hard to make a realistic depiction of a Sci-Fi movie. It's done here brilliantly.

  • While the movie is about Language, the film unto itself is a language. One that once you go through the work of translating can wake you up to the beauty of your past, present, and future. 

  • Happiness is fleeting, recognize and enjoy it when you can. Do not sail through life and look back realizing you never took the time to cherish the moments you were content.

  • Jeremy Renner

Anyways there you have it. That's the last time I don't back something up on Goggle Docs. Sorry websites fucking suck sometimes. I'll bring it extra hard on the next one to make up for it.
