Movie Review: #Arrival

The brainy and beautiful Arrival is also a powerful cinematic experience.

Review by Matt Cummings

WARNING: This review contains mild spoilers.

If the cinema year of 2016 has proven one thing, it's that Hollywood still isn't afraid to let loose with an intelligent film while impaling us with big, dumb (and only sometimes enjoyable) action fare. Arrival is a triumph of modern film-making, a bold, intelligent tale that's far deeper than the trailers might suggest, and immediately establishes itself as one of a handful of must-see films this Fall.

Linguistic Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is summoned to one of 12 landing sites throughout the world to decode messages by an alien species she lovingly refers to as Abbott and Costello. These gigantic multipeds utter a seemingly incomprehensible language, punctuated by a beautiful inky broken circular writing. These 12 massive crescent-shaped vessels stand elegantly on their sides, suspended by anti-gravity that allows Louise to float up and into its core, which is bounded by a massive glass wall. There, she and scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) seek to decode Abbott and Costello's messages before the world destroys itself in a fit of mindless violence and cratering stocks. But Louise is onto something - waking up to powerful memories of her child who died of a rare form of cancer at the age of 12 - and realizing a connection between them and the aliens' arrival. Faced with both unimaginable tragedy and a life-altering decision to decode the transmissions, Louise journeys to the far reaches of her mind and even time itself to unravel a mystery thousands of years in the making.

It's so refreshing to see an alien contact movie like Arrival that doesn't need to destroy cities in order to prove its point. Instead, what we get is genuine Science-Fiction, a drama embraced with space/science elements. The result is almost always mesmerizing, bolstered by impressive camerawork by Director Denis Villeneuve and Cinematographer Bradford Young as well as solidly appealing performances by its leads. In the case of those behind the camera, Villeneuve crafts another potential masterpiece, unafraid to visually push Screenwriter Eric Heisserer's unconventional script into exciting new directions. But there's more going on here with the story than just amazing visuals: Arrival has a very specific message about collaboration, that intelligence and hard work can bring you amazing things. It's certainly a message we all need to hear right now.

Powered by one of the most unique scores you'll ever hear - courtesy of Composer Johann Johannsson - Arrival is deeply moving and immensely powerful throughout. It's not something that can drive your work day, nor is it memorable enough to add to a playlist, but it's incredibly unique and therefore something you have to hear just to appreciate. It's just one of the ways Villenueve refuses to dumb-down the audience's experience, also utilizing super nerd communication language and complex interstellar space travel concepts. If Director Alfonso Curason's Gravity opened the door and Christopher Nolan's masterpiece Interstellar sent us through it via a wormhole, Arrival completes the process by taking us to the other side, to meet those responsible for our journey in the first place. And they do need our help, as their culture is on the verge of collapse. How humans are supposed to do that is ultimately unclear, and it's one of the small nagging problems that arise as soon as our initial amazement wears off.

This is most certainly not the popcorn fun of Star Trek Beyond, opting for a more mature and immediately recognizable Oscar run. Both subgenres can easily exist, even though they offer very different messages. For Arrival, it's a story about love, loss, time travel, time bending, and communication that's as elegant as any Universal Translator. Sometimes that message - and the way it comes to us - isn't as elegant, but it's always interesting. There's the near-completely unrecognizable Michael Stuhlbarg as the thinly-drawn CIA jackboot who's simply there to follow orders. Whitaker - who's slated to appear in a potentially more interesting role in December's Rogue One - is only slightly better because several of his lines are more memorable. Again, he's there to push buttons rather than represent his government, a diagram of differences that might have made Heisserer's script even better.

But so much works in Arrival that it's hard to ignore its ultimate beauty. Adams' subtle performance is nothing short of terrific, never raising her voice and practicing incredible restraint even as her world undergoes incredible change. As a professor, she's constantly surrounded by people but ultimately alone, never accepting the death of her daughter and ushering in a divorce that will leave her home almost frozen in time. Renner, who is given so little to do at too many points, is still vastly enjoyable, as his respect for Louise and almost giddy response to meeting aliens feels exactly on tone. But there is a big reveal here - actually several that happen almost at once - which makes Louise and Ian's ultimate conclusion all that more powerful. The film's odd structure - mirroring the nature of the alien writing - might be hard to follow, and you're certain to leave with questions. But that's the point, and I'd far prefer that to much of the mindless pap we were being force-fed during the disastrous Summer.

Pushing the limits of Science-Fiction and perhaps film itself, Arrival stands as one of the best films of the year, a powerful message that hope can beat despair in a time when it seems like the latter is already upon us. It might be too slow for some, but it's brainy, beautiful, and certainly worth your time if you can stick with it. Based on the bold storytelling of Arrival, I cannot wait for Villenueve's upcoming Blade Runner sequel. But for now, enjoy this uplifting epic and remind yourself that goodness can come from an industry that seems stuck sometimes on delivering splashy, overtly sexualized tales.

Arrival is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and has a runtime of 116 minutes.

#MarvelCollectorCorps Review: October 2016

Our (once again) late arrival of Marvel Collector Corps' DOCTOR STRANGE box shows the sub's best and worst faces.

Review by Matt Cummings

Funko's Marvel Collector Corps was once the top of the heap of sub boxes. But with the disastrous Marvel Stupor Box and August's less-than-awesome Spider-man, we're beginning to look elsewhere. This month's Doctor Strange box is no different, at once displaying Funko's best and worst faces as we consider our future investment.

The Promise

Before we begin, let's look at the original deal and MCC's current offering: promising a value of $50, regular boxes would keep the "fluff" (their words) to a minimum with Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure. Regardless if you joined at the Founders level or took on a per-box delivery, the Year One box was offered for an additional cost of $135 after tax. That's approximately the price of 4 regular boxes. Founders (like myself) were offered first crack at purchasing these, which were billed as "bigger and better than anything that's come before" in their PR materials.

With Year One Founders already receiving a golden (and somewhat disappointing) chintzy Captain America statue for their one-year commitment, it's clear that such a 'reward' was not exactly what fans had in mind. Based on previous situations, one could see MCC's team learning from their mistake, vowing to never do it again. And yet, the problems continue with Doctor Strange, although the real problem doesn't present itself until the bottom, displaying a lack of quality and diversity with other boxes.

The Delivery
As always, we use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see exactly what happened. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing:


The Guts
The Doctor Strange movie was one of the most anticipated of 2016, and it certainly didn't disappoint, as you can read from my review HERE. Considering the response fans shared with Benedict Cumberbatch, MCC made great timing with this box. But as with Spider-man, we clearly see chinks in Funko's armor, basically giving us at-once amazing gear and then a few duds in between.

Pin/Patch
A usually solid anchor set, the usually reliable pin/patch - which gives us Strange and The Eye of Agamotto - is uneven to say the least. Simply put, Strange looks awful, not at all reflecting Cumberbatch's facial features. The pin is awesome, so call this one a PUSH.

The Comic
I really liked the variant cover for Doctor Strange and The Sorcerers Supreme (2016) #1. Although I've read much of Strange thanks to Marvel Unlimited, I haven't caught up to 2016 yet. This cover is excellent though and it's one of my favorite from the year. WIN.

The Wearable
Another fantastic element of this month's box is the always reliable t-shirt, again featuring Strange in a wicked wizard pose. Sadly, this would have been a great opportunity to highlight the various villains that attack the Sanctum Santorum, including Baron Mordo, Nightmare, and Dormammu. But this one will do just fine. WIN

Gorgeous (But Predictable) Funko Pop
And here's where things become a bit muddied. The figure is excellent, as evidenced by my photos (which are not excellent). I don't have a Strange, and the yellow really jumps (or POPs) out of the box. It's a nice sculpt and I'm very happy with the result. The bottom of the box, showing off The Eye of Agamotto, is also a nice touch. WIN.

Here We Go Again...Again
If you've heard my rants about Funko's odd decision-making regarding its 'mugs' - which are mugs in name only - then you won't be shocked at how disappointed I am to get another one here. The sculpt is terrible, giving us only the face and it's not drinkable. The head looks more like Tony Stark's than Steven Strange's. I can't tell you how much I hate filler, and it's clear that the mugs are Funko's answer to that. FAIL.

The Bottom Line
With October's Marvel Collector Corps box nearly three weeks late, it's clear that Funko shipping model has also fallen on hard times. Luckily, nothing was broken, but the contents are all over the place in terms of quality. Subscribers were recently asked to participate in a survey that showed the company wants to continue monetizing, but they were also concerned about too many Funko products being repeated year after year. It's clear they desire a refresh for 2017, but will that look like? We need less Stupor Box and more Cosmic Splendor, a bold movement towards new and innovative, something MCC did right out of the gate. Now, it just feels predictable and even disappointing when they get something(s) wrong.

The Edge of Seventeen Premiere Images & Footage #EdgeOf17

The Edge of Seventeen is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club - an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it's like to grow up as a young woman in today's modern world.


See all the images and footage after the Jump...













Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson)

All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine's well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine's History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.

The Edge of Seventeen marks the feature film directorial debut of writer-director Kelly Fremon Craig and is produced by Academy Award® winner James L. Brooks - the filmmaker behind big-screen, character-driven classics such as Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, Big, Say Anything, The Simpsons, Jerry Maguire and As Good as It Gets.

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Trailer

Rooted in the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline- visionary writer/director Luc Besson advances this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique and epic science fiction saga.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.



Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha's seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time- uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.

Dumbledore Will Return In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Sequel

Given that Albus Dumbledore – future headmaster of Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry – is alive and kicking during New Scamander's (Eddie Redmayne) time and is mentioned in one of the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them trailers, it won't surprise you to learn that director David Yates has confirmed we'll meet the younger Dumbledore in the sequel to the new movie.

"In the second movie Dumbledore comes back. He’s got a couple of good scenes with Newt…" Yates said at a roundtable for the film attended by Screen Rant. "We’re discussing who would play Dumbledore, any suggestions would be good!" Though the late Richard Harris and then Michael Gambon played the character in the Harry Potter movies, the Fantastic Beasts will be looking for someone to take on the mantle of the younger Dumbledore. Tough gig...

And with rumors continuing to swirl that Johnny Depp - who has reportedly been cast in the sequel – could be playing the nefarious Gellert Grindelwald, the wizarding world needs Dumbledore to fight him. J.K. Rowling has written the script for the sequel, scheduled for 2018.

#InsidetheBucket Podcast #105

The Big Bang Theory "Sheldon" Spinoff In The Works

Variety is reporting Warner Bros. TV and CBS are in the early stages of developing a spinoff of “The Big Bang Theory” that would revolve around the Sheldon Cooper character as a youth.

Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on the flagship series, is attached to executive produce the spinoff along with Chuck Lorre and “Big Bang” showrunner Steve Molaro. “Big Bang” co-creator/exec producer Bill Prady is likely to be on board as an exec producer as well.

Molaro will write the script focusing on Sheldon, the idiosyncratic and neurotic genius, as a youth growing up in Texas. The character’s colorful family and formative years in the Lone Star state have often been referenced on “Big Bang Theory.” Laurie Metcalf earned an Emmy nomination this year for her recurring guest star role as Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper.

CBS and Warner Bros. TV declined to comment.

“Big Bang Theory” is television’s top comedy, a major feat for a show in its 10th season. Warner Bros. and CBS are expected to begin discussions soon about a renewal deal that is anticipated to take the show through another two or three seasons. A prequel spinoff would give CBS a shot at extending the valuable “Big Bang” franchise.

Renewing “Big Bang” is an expensive investment, as the core cast members — Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco — currently make $1 million per episode for their 24-episode seasons. A new series would come with a lower cost structure but capitalize on the built-in “Big Bang” fan base.

Sources caution, though, that the follow-up series is still in very early development, just at the script stage.
