You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. (Film Draft)

Contact (1997)

It simply captured my imagination in a way no movie has done. The way it tackles the battle between Religion and Science is genius at times. Some people may find the ending odd; I found it perfect. Amazingly, Matthew Mcocnaughey manages to not completely play the same role he’s had in every film.

I hope one day this film isn’t considered Science Fiction, but just an interesting look at what could happen when we finally make first contact.

    I rushed over to look at the draft board after I saw your Netflix note. I had a sinking feeling I neglected to select it early on. Seriously one of my top favorite films. Like you said, powerful stuff.

    Excellent pick.

    I saw you gave it five stars, but I had no idea it was “favorite film” material. If only more sci-fi could be deep and thought-provoking like this. I’m crossing my fingers for Inception, but I fear the 200 million dollar budget will make it more of a visual affair.

    The way I understand it, and I hope this is the case, a good deal of that money is going into cast + location shooting while still leaving a nice chunk to do crazy-ass sci-fi shit. Also, if that is in fact Canadian dollars, then that alters the scale of things somewhat, too.

    I’m not the biggest Ellen Page fan simply because of the Juno-image-baggage she brings on board, butohwell.

    Now that Thirst is basically within my grasp, this is without a doubt my most anticipated (or until WB loses it and greenlights Singer/Routh’s Man of Steel in the meantime).

    To tell the truth this became a fantastic detailed report nonetheless as with most wonderful freelance writers there are some factors that could be worked well after. Nevertheless never the particular significantly less it turned out interesting.
