I got to watch Arrival yesterday and have to admit it was absolutley terrible,only really watched it as Forrest Whitaker was in it(and not really a lot in it)and was highly disapointed from end to finish.

Plus the fact I had to google "explain the ending of Arrival" etc,as it was all just a mish mash of nonsence to be quite honest.

They see things to admire where we can't, a bit like the intellectual people talking down to us about modern art and abstract paintings. People agree with the critics so as to show their own intellect. Lemmings and sheep led by a few visionaries....all poppyc*ck in my own intellectual opinion LOL
