Half in the Bag: Shut In and Arrival

November 17, 2016279 Comments

Mike and Jay talk about Shut In, a new release movie that everybody has already forgotten exists, and Arrival, an intelligent science fiction drama that was beaten at the box office by an animated children’s movie based on those big haired troll dolls.

  • Alex Doucet

    Love Half in the Bag lol

  • buglecall

    Thank fuck. You guys always cheer me up.

  • Cirric Fylenco

    After that crappy pro-star wars review Ive decided I like Fake Plinkett more than Real Plinkett. Real Plinkett sold out.

  • Hieronymus Friedrich von Münch

    rich is a jerk

  • Yay. New RLM content is like finding presents under the tree. Except for Rich Evans, whose laugh bothers my neighbors in the wee hours of the morning, lol.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Call him a cuck and be done with it.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Sounds like you need new neighbors.

  • Adez

    Rich’s a wonderful goofy man

  • 45 foot squid monsters for the win!

  • Adez

    Review of Arrival by me, pretty ok, I would have
    Moan a little for that grey look but I was
    Please d with it’s strong contrasting cinematography

  • RiverDevil

    The Inside… The Recovered

  • Palpatine

    They should feel honored to hear Rich’s laughter.

  • Steven Gibbs

    start making new intro lines again you frauds i’m not not paying you to see repeated intros!

  • RiverDevil

    i don’t like things that are different

  • Jessica Meyer

    TEAM JAY. It Follows isn’t about a house you hack fraud!

  • ElectricPrism

    I think “Shut In” is a parallel for how the producers have shut in the audience to torment the viewers.

  • ElectricPrism

    I hope we’re finally done with the boring Halloween movies.

  • IamSithAzagoth

    How could Mike and Jay call their movie idea “The Inside” when most of the shit in it happens outside?

  • Jaws

    Close Encounters of the Ripoff Kind

  • Steven Gibbs

    You’ll love star wars episode 2 and 3, they are just as shitty as 1! Nothing different there

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    Those are great. I despise the horror genre, but Jay loves them, and that’s what makes these great. Watching them deconstruct movies in genres they are passionate about is what makes these worth watching.

  • Wow this place has really died (in terms of comments) since they got rid of blip.

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    AHAHAHAHAHA…AHAHA.

  • RLMkeepitup

    naomi watts fellates. she really gives it her all. theres a little deaf kid. *jump scare*

  • Troll Prince

    Yeah… it’s a pure boring sci-fi movie.

  • RLMkeepitup

    shat, shat. shat it all out. these are the films we can laugh about. come on

  • fred

    Facebook has the best redlettermedia comments.

  • Art Kid

    The white TV. It’s so bright! My eyes!!!!!!

  • Angela

    I have to pause the episode to say: Jay, you *should* recommend “I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House”. I thought it was great. Not perfect, but moody and well done, and Ruth Wilson is always fantastic. It works, and it works well.

  • RiverDevil

    It’s not that. the hack frauds were afraid the comments were eclipsing their “content”, so they purged

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Jay, the movie you can’t remember the name of is, “The Item.”

    Jesus Christ, I need to get a life.

  • Percy Gryce

    Since Mr. Plinkett drugged and restrained Mike & Jay, why didn’t he just go all the way and turn them into a Human Centipede?

  • Percy Gryce

    Nota Bene: The Item was a Percy Gryce contribution, back when I was relevant.

  • Galactic Shawn

    Fuuuck movies! ….except for Prisoners, that movie was great. My theory is that they didnt drink this episode because one of them is under court order not to touch booze do to a DUI hit and run incident.

  • Jaws

    No that was Matthew Broderick

  • Rumblepuss

    Oliver Platt looks like he’s sitting in an Ikea.

  • bleurgh

    That’s part of the MYSTERY obvs.

  • Seth

    Amy Adams is the worst actress. Just the worst.

  • Seth

    Because in the real world, German scat porn makes the Human Centipede an act of absurd redundancy.

  • Seth

    Funny you say that because he’s in fact sitting in the smoking ruins of a once-promising career.

  • Seth

    That’s why you shouldn’t live in people’s walls.

  • Seth

    It’s called half in the bag, not all the way in the bag.

    I.e. go to bed, you’re drunk.

  • Seth

    And suddenly, things took a distinctly dark turn, reminiscent of Japanese cartoons. Amy Adams suddenly and fervently wished she had retired after ruining Superman.

  • Seth

    Spoken like a man with a skin condition.

  • Seth

    You can turn off the squawk box but you can’t turn off the Trump administration. Get used to it is my advice.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    So, aside from Marvel superhero movies, have there been any good films this year? I’ve mostly been watching 80’s-era made-for-TV movies about hijacked airplanes, haunted houses, bat-infested doomsday bunkers, and Hal Holbrook trying to kill his cheating wife. Though that last one aired in ’79, technically.

  • It’s refreshing to see a review of non-super hero movies. I liked this episode. Thank you.

  • Mugato

    That was an episode of Supernatural too. A family moves into a new house and they think there’s a ghost there but it turns out it was just a feral girl living in the wall. But that predates any of these movies.

  • LameSame

    Wait, wait, wait: you think that in Alfred Hitchcock’s time “Shut In” would have some sort of longer, more ornate title? Sure… the title “Shut In” is just too short and stupid when compared to titles such as “The Birds”, “Psycho”, “Vertigo”, “Notorious”, “Murder!”, “Secret Agent”, “Rope”, “I Confess”, “Rear Window”, and 90% of the rest of Hitchock’s catalog.

    But I’m nitpicking. Sounds like a real stinker of a movie either way!

  • LameSame

    I agree. She’s very one-note. She’s also not very good at doing that particular note.

  • LameSame

    Film?

  • Bob

    God help me, but I have Best of the Worst as a constant playlist while I sleep. The moment happens at 6:20. This is maybe my favorite Halloween episode.

  • SqualrusWalrus

    Leaving in Rich’s stutter/stammer was amazing. Mike and jay and Rich have amazing comedy instincts.

  • Mugato

    Jay isn’t a fan of Blade Runner? WTF?

  • RedLetterMediumsDotCorn

    Now I’m gonna have to watch this for Watts-her-naomi’s line readings. She hates sand.

  • He’s said this many times before. I’m kind of with Jay on that one to be honest – I’ve always loved the visuals and the world-building in Bladerunner but as a story I just never really cared that much for it.

  • Mugato

    The post I was replying to was removed. That’s weird. He was agreeing with Jay. Well let’s see if my response goes through

    “Ok, fair enough. You’re wrong but fair enough :p

    I have no idea what they’re going to do with the sequel though. Obviously Deckard isn’t a replicant, which is better story-wise, Roy Batty was more human than Decard, etc. Rachel will be long dead (I’m assuming they’re not going with the happy ending version).

    Westworld on HBO is dealing with a lot of the same themes but with more boobs.”

  • Like Icare

    That’s how it is now in the Trump America. Even if you agree with the boss you’re gonna be deleted.
    Just ask Chris Christie.

  • Mugato

    I really only remember him in the crocodile movie and he was actually pretty funny in that. He was also in Flatliners but I don’t remember that at all.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    How does “We Are Still Here” have a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score? I thought it was a Syfy Channel movie, with slightly more red paint than the usual CGI blood-splatter.

  • Like Icare

    He defuses a terris bom with a cocktail toothpick in that moopie where Stephen Seagul gets anticlimactically killed half way into the moopie.

    Then it’s all up to Halle Berry, Kurt Russel and the inanimate plastic toothpick to save the day.

  • Like Icare

    It’s better to be a has been, than never to have been at all…

    I think Shatner sang that once.

  • Like Icare

    It’s a TWIST!

  • Like Icare

    Cause Totten Romatoes is a worse score counter than even imdb?

  • Like Icare

    I like to see things I recognize.

  • Sorry I replied twice but I’m afraid of expressing my opinion, so I went back and forth about it. That’s fair enough though, I’m okay with being wrong 😛 Don’t get me wrong though, I’ll be watching the sequel when it comes out. I can enjoy a good meaty scifi movie even if I don’t like the story much.

  • Like Icare

    She didn’t ruin Superman. It was Bryan Singer.

    Ironically, he also made the last kinda-good Superman movie. So far.

  • Like Icare

    The zoo is very popular with the furry crowd.

  • Herbert West

    Techically, Fake Plinkett is Real Plinkett and Real Plinkett is Fake Plinkett so nothing has really changed. Real Plinkett is dead, long live Real Plinkett.

  • Thomas Leblanc

    You guys are overthinking the name Villeneuve. Vil-nuh-v.

  • That’s for sure. Anti-Evans scum they are.

  • I’m busy gentrifying the insides of everyone’s walls. A lot of untapped potential real estate in there.

  • Seth

    Shut In

  • Seth

    True. It was a team effort.

    Adams’ miserable and never-ending screen presence, Singer’s bland homaging, and Snyder’s sneering incompetence.

  • Seth

    I legit lol’d. Living poor in the Bay Area at present. Inside the wall space could be an untapped market out here.

  • LameSame

    Looks like Mike’s growing a beard, too (or is that just for November?). RLM might soon be Full Beard. That would be awesome.

  • LameSame

    I think “score counting” at all is a really dumb idea. This is a great example why!

  • RLMkeepitup

    he didnt disappear, he was skinned alive!

  • EJ

    Yeah I laughed at that too. His movies are brilliant, but Hitchcock was the master of stupid, one word titles. I mean he made a movie about a spy who commits sabotage. It’s called “Sabotage.”

  • EJ

    Haha wut. Hardly anybody working in Hollywood today can disappear into a character the way Amy Adams can.

  • EJ

    I grew up in the Bay Area. Construction there is such low quality there’s no space in walls, basements or attics.

  • Like Icare

    Well, we have to do SOMETHING.

    We’re not allowed to just kill everyone involved with a movie we don’t like.

  • Like Icare

    You mean Watts-her-face?

    Every time she is mentioned I have to look up where she acted – cause I can’t remember seeing her in anything. And each time I’m reminded of all the movies I saw… but I can’t recall seeing her in it.
    Yes… there was an actress in that role… but I can’t recall her face.

    She’s just so amazingly bland to me that the last movie I can with certainty say I saw her in was Tank Girl – and that was a surprise when I found that out years later.

    Cause I thought at the time that the actress playing Jet Girl was kinda cute. Which probably stemmed from the fact that she plays the most human-looking and least irritating character in that movie.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    The public score is a suitable 45%, or so, which seems reasonable for a forgettable horror movie. But why is the critic score so damned high? I’ve seen genuinely good films get far lower than 95% from critics.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    I mostly remember her from the King Kong remake a decade ago. I too was surprised to realize she was in Tank Girl, when I saw it again a few months ago. Totally unrecognizable without the blond hair, I guess.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    He was in 2012 as the asshole bureaucrat who just wants to save humanity, and is repeatedly proven right by the other stupid characters.

    I think he was also in one of those painfully depressing Robin Williams vehicles, “Bicentennial Man” I think.

  • Like Icare

    Between a) paid shills and b) it only got reviews from people who only review horror movies while having a distinct lack of taste – I’m gonna go with b.
    Not sure if that makes me an optimist or a cynic.

  • Whiskey Jack: Lord of Pith

    You know, a horror film called “The Twist”, with no actual twist, would be a pretty epic troll….

  • Percy Gryce

    Shat Out > Shut In

  • Percy Gryce

    Upvote … I guess.

  • Daniel T

    I love that Shut In review so fucking much I must have watched it like 4 times already

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Ridley Scott is a producer, so I’m willing to bet Deckard will very much be a replicant. They’ll just say he was so perfect that he got to age to the age of 76, or something stupid like that.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    M. Night Shyamalan is working on it as we speak.

  • I feel like X-Files had a similar episode at some point.

  • harumph

    Not just similar, but exactly the same.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    The biggest plot hole I noticed in Arrival was the way Amy Adam’s character somehow didn’t remember the extremely important phone call she made to the Chinese general when he mentioned it to her in one of the “flash-forward” scenes. So, basically the “flash-forward” scene was set at some unspecified time in the future, after the main events depicted in the film. Thus, the “future” Amy Adams should have remembered calling the Chinese general and saving the world in the past.

    However, when the general approaches her at the gathering in the future, she’s acts like she has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. This is despite the fact that her calling him and telling him his exactly what his deceased wife told him on her death bed in Chinese was an extremely important event that saved the world in the past. There is NO WAY she would have forgotten about that, because despite the non-linear version of time set up by the movie, there is still a coherent, linear narrative in which Amy’s character exists and experiences linear sequences of events. She knows exactly what is going to happen at every point in her life, but apparently the bit about the party somehow escapes her? Give me a break.

    Otherwise, aside from a SUPER cheesy line at the end from the love-interest science guy (I literally face-palmed in the theater) felt the movie was solid all-around. I really liked the small detail of the caged bird that was continually brought into the ship with the team: the symbol of the caged bird was also employed to great effect in Melville’s Le Samouraï, and I almost felt like Denis Villeneuve was quoting Melville here, especially when you consider the theme of fatalism (symbolized by the caged bird) that is addressed by both films.

  • Jaws

    The Birds sucked

  • Seth

    Hack fraud. Shoehorning in Le Samourai was a clear tell.

  • I’m sure that’s true, the thing about X-Files that people forget is that they did an episode about basically every modern horror/sci-fi thing they could think of. It’s even gotten to a point where X-Files is old enough that even conspiracy theorists rip the show off.

  • bleurgh

    It’s like Slaughterhouse 5, she isn’t seeing visions of the future, she’s become unstuck in time and is experiencing moments in her life in a jumbled order. She hadn’t experienced the moment of her life when she made the phone call until after she experienced the moment of her life when she had the conversation with the dude about the phone call she made in his idea of the past. It’s confusing, but that’s the point. She’s seeing time in a way regular humans can’t.

  • bleurgh

    The Ring is probably her most well known movie. She just doesn’t get cast in very good movies and when she’s cast in an above-avergae one, hardly anyone sees it.

  • bleurgh

    It’s should have at least 50 red herrings in it though.

  • So, Mike, what’s your next get rich quick scheme?

  • Shame.

  • Well, you have to shut in when you have diarrhoea.

  • Now I Get It

    “Nota-ed.”

    When RLM’s strongman elected to rid this site of links, he rid us of the high signal-to-noise ratio that was jamming everyone. The air was cleared for the builders, the scholars, the wits to proclaim, “I made this!” and be heard. And as a man (much wiser than I) once said, “He also serves who ships by surface mail.”

    Rise to vote, sir. Rise, I say.

  • How many critics is it averaged out of? The overall score is just an average of the number of positive vs. negative reviews, which probably means something like ratings of over or under 60%. So if only 10 people reviewed a movie and they all gave it 60%, I’m pretty sure it shows up as “100% fresh”.

  • Now I Get It

    My anus has two sphincters. And they don’t get along. Someone should film that for wide release.

  • Percy Gryce

    *media mail — ’cause I’m a goram cheapskate.

    How’s the book coming? You must uncloak, self-dox, and reveal yourself soon.

  • peterablex

    Mulholland Drive? She was great in that imho

  • The title was too long. They should have made it shorter and simpler: like “BEAKS”

  • TheVerySpecialK

    The similarities were to Le Samouraï were all there, though. I can’t have been the only one to notice that. Just like Jef Costello is doomed (and knows it), Amy Adams’ character also comprehends her fate (the death of her daughter and the resultant break-up). Both characters also end up accepting their fate. The detail of the caged bird was the “tip off” that confirmed the allusion. Both filmmakers are also French. Do the math.

  • Am I the only one who really enjoyed the 90s movie “The Arrival” with Charlie Sheen? Maybe it’s just nostalgia, I remember watching it a lot on VHS as a kid. It might be utter schlock, but I kind of like the premise.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    Ah, that explains it. For some reason I didn’t think of Slaughterhouse 5. That’s a great comparison. However, that scene was still sloppy: the general takes out his phone and shows her his number? What? He then insists upon repeating his deceased wife’s last words to her, even though he assumes she already knows them in his version of the future? Well, that sure was convenient. I guess you could say that the general somehow knew how she was experiencing time, but then why did he say he would “never understand the way [her] mind works”? Whatever.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    I was definitely entertained by that movie.

  • Now I Get It

    *media mail…

    What’s that now? Also, I’ll have to detox undox self-dox soon, because, as I’ve said, the book is in some jeopardy and Ima need a modicum of help.

  • EJ

    Yeah that’s the problem with saying “95% on Rotten Tomatoes means it’s 95% perfect!” A mediocre movie that everyone gives two and a half stars can get a higher score than a brilliant but polarizing one that some people love and other people hate. I don’t hate Rotten Tomatoes review aggregation method, but you have to look at it for what it is.

  • EJ

    The Twist is that the guy you thought was the villain the whole time… actually is the villain!

  • Admiral Bone-to-Pick

    Haha

  • RLMkeepitup

    im looking forward to what Mike’ll be doing to get these vids more click-baity in the future. maybe he asked rich to do a funny face, and, and he said: go to hell

  • LameSame

    Same. I also remember a trailer for Half-Life was on the VHS release. Definitely makes you connect Sheen’s character to Gordon Freeman. I remember thinking the two might actually be the same guy before I finally got around to playing Half-Life. Similar stories, too.

  • milky_cereal

    To continue the plot of the generic horror movie, you could also have an uncle come over and mention some things about ghosts and such, how the spirits of the dead are still alive and have been reincarnated as a dog or something like that. That dog could help the kids solve some crimes. With an idea like that, I don’t think you can go wrong.

  • frankelee

    I’m actually still not sure what happens during Shut In. How many children are there? Why does the boy live in the walls? So the old lady was faking her condition the whole time just so she could get more sponge baths?

  • TheVerySpecialK

    I watched it after picking it out at random from my local library’s movie section. I looked up reviews and was about to put it back on the shelf, but then I thought, “it has aliens and Charlie Sheen in it, why the hell not.” Was not disappointed. No Half-Life trailer though…

  • Seth

    Lol. You should have trotted out the Matrix films before breaking out a big gun like Le Samourai. Slow it down, sonny.

  • Seth

    Right up there with Adam Sandler.

  • Seth

    Ohhhhhhh Percy! Good one bruv!

  • Seth

    No no no, oh my god no. First Le Samourai and now Vonnegut?

    This is getting crazy!

  • Seth

    Now that is a theory I like.

    If only Valve could do something with Half-Life now. We’ve been trapped under the overmarketed garbage that is CoD for way too long.

  • Seth

    Gold, Jerry. Gold!

  • Seth

    You asked and I explained. That’s how this thing works.

  • Jaws

    The answers are in the special extended directors cut, only available on 3D Blu Ray.

  • Jaws

    I think he should grow a mustache, because mustaches are sexy.

  • bleurgh

    King Kong needed more Jack Black and less everything else.

  • THAT’S SO WEIRD THAT YOU SAY THAT. When recalling the movie after making this post I made the exact same comment to my friend. The whole part where he’s tumbling around inside their global warming machine especially reminded me of being Gordon Freeman – just the fact that he doesn’t know what’s going on and basically just has to maneuver his way through everything not knowing whether or not the next tube he jumps down is going to send him somewhere to be crushed or vaporized. It’s almost like the sort of place you’d benefit from having done Hazard Training Courses. That and he had the look going for him – the beard, the glasses. I don’t remember there being a Half-Life trailer attached to my copy, but that’s kind of amazing if that’s true, Sidenote: I finally beat Half-Life 1 on the hardest difficulty. Nihilanthe was such a bitch that beating him basically gave me tendonitus.

  • I did myself wrong by replaying Half-Life 2 and its episodes again – I’m so hungry for more it’s pathetic. I always forget how long it’s been, and those games have aged so well… GIVE US MORE VALVE. ANYTHING. PLEASE

  • The answer is: movie.

    Alright…We deal with aliens who are capable of space travel. We are like ants to them. In everything. Technology, thinking and philosophy. Would these beeings realy need our help in communication matters? Do I ask ants to do my math? In 2016 I expect a more realistic approach on this first contact matter.

  • RLMkeepitup

    true. plus the idea that a species capable of coming here would just attack is a bit cliche. they’d probably (hopefully) have more respect for life than we do. they certainly would not need our help

  • Alex Doucet

    I watched The Arrival last night, then I watched the sequel to the Charlie Sheen Arrival. The moment when Amy Adams’ character is speaking directly to the heptapods is almost as good as when the guy from Star Ship Troopers who got his brain sucked out fights the screwdriver wielding alien with the rubber mask.

  • Like Icare

    Maybe they are really bored and are looking for a race with a surplus of entertainment and games?

  • RICCampion

    “Incendies” was fantastic. Well worth the trip.

  • RLMkeepitup

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    It has one of my favorite Rich Evans moments, when he impersonates Jimmy Stewart, “Well what you’ve got here is a Blood Lock!”

    I had to pause it the first time because I couldn’t see or hear anything else. I just had tears in my eyes. It caught me off guard and Rich Evans can do no wrong with me.

  • bleurgh

    The reality is that life on another evolutionary timeline will be so incomprehensibly weird and different to us that merely interacting with it is likely to be disastrous for both parties involved. Look at the havoc that disease caused when Britain colonized half the world. We should all hope we never encounter anything.

  • Malevolence

    If an alien race supposedly traveled here through lightspeed or dimensional rift technology, what makes us think we even have a chance? There may be aliens out there that have a million years head start on us

  • Jaws

    A lot of people believe they are already here, in the form of lizard hybrids in disguise as world leaders.

  • The Wicker Man (BWF)

    “Housebound” is excellent and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a fun horror/comedy movie.

  • The Wicker Man (BWF)

    Reptoids look like Rich Evans, only naked and green.

  • Jaws

    They did, it was called Batman v Superman.

  • Now I Get It

    And yet I felt nothing.

  • The Wicker Man (BWF)

    No, the answer is: Fuck you, it’s movie.

  • Malevolence

    Maybe that’s what Rich Evans wants you to think, and HE is actually Reptoid himself! It all makes so much sense now… That scaly skin, his forked tongue (as Jack tells me), and lastly his terrible fashion sense! We CAUGHT YOU Rich Evans! Or should I say, Xaltar!

  • Malevolence

    The movie felt like it was screenwritten by Simon Pegg, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just can’t get British humor sometimes. (i.e.- Woman sits on toilet to pee, hears a noise, stops peeing, continues, hears noise again and stops peeing, then continues, repeats like 2 more times)

  • The Wicker Man (BWF)

    We are about overdue for a RLM commentary track…

  • The Wicker Man (BWF)

    It’s got that weird New Zealand humor! I went into it without knowing anything and was pleasantly surprised. Yeah, I could go with women urinating jokes as well.

  • Malevolence

    Eitherway, it was a pleasant movie, if not a bit schizophrenic with it constantly switching between horror, drama, comedy, mystery genres…. Frankly I watched it thinking it was John Goodman in the photo XD

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    Why the hell do these aliens need a woman from the 21st century to learn their language by hand?

    Not only should they know English (Generally the most commonly known language) especially because they see time as non linear, but if they had attempted to communicate with us even a few decades later, computer technology would probably make this issue a non-starter.

    I’m sure that someone has said this already.

  • RLMkeepitup

    women obviously have the gift of gab. but in Close Encounters Spielberg used music (tone?), I’m sure it would be a pattern, perhaps binary code as you said. i liked the idea in 5th element: send out a probe. let it talk, sample, get killed

  • The most iconic bit to me is Charlie Sheen giving his wife the crazy eye as he grabs a screwdriver and drags it across the table as he backs up. Classic Sheen

  • Alex Doucet

    I haven’t seen the Sheen Arrival in a while I’ll have to re-watch it this weekend.

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    perhaps this would be too convoluted, but…

    It would make more sense to me if the aliens spoke one of our languages, but their intentions seemed hostile because of the same problem that she mentioned when she made up the story about the kangaroo.

    Some kind of set up and pay off that wasn’t some cheap sci-fi twist manipulating the audience into feeling bad for the main character.

    I don’t know. That’s perhaps a bit too mid-season StarTrek episode. The crystal monster probably knew English. Or maybe I’m too sick to be making the words good.

  • scubadonc

    This is not at all what would happen. Europeans decimated other humans with disease. Alien beings aren’t human and diseases would likely not be transmissible between species.

  • Ask and ye shall receive…sort of…

  • bleurgh

    Diseases are totally communicable between species. Anyway, I’m just using disease as an example. Maybe it’s not a very good one.

    The way we conceive of alien life is too rooted in our own specific version of it.

    What if they are from an evolutionary timeline where a microscopic form of life feeds on carbon based life, like a hardcore flesh eating bacteria, no life on earth would have any immunity to it, because nothing similar has developed on Earth and so nothing has been able to develop an evolutionary response

    Or look at venomous and/or poisonous organisms. They didn’t evolve this characteristic specifically to kill humans, but are still deadly to humans.

    Chances are there are things in this foreign evolutionary timeline that are deadly to almost all organisms on our evolutionary timeline in a way which is totally inconceivable to us.

  • bleurgh

    I know right and why didn’t the girl in Juno just get an abortion.

  • Lute Hende

    Could be me. The problem is we still ignore what is necessary to invent space travel. It’s not only the technology. The whole species has to evolve in order to achieve this. Such movies, where WE help THEM, show the whole scale of our ignorance. I don’t say it’s bad movie. But the science behind it is still 80s/90s -ish with a “humanity still beeing center of the universe” philosophy.

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    I didn’t say the movie shouldn’t exist, just that the conflict of this scenario didn’t make sense to me.

    There’s a difference between a moral dilemma and a practical problem, by the way.

    I hope you were falling back on RLM’s comment’s lazy brand of sarcasm, or your comment comes across like someone as dumb as you posted it.

    My apologies if that’s exactly what you were doing.

    One question about Arrival: did the aliens first figure out that we help them in 3000 years before they came to help us learn to communicate so that we could then help them in 3000 years so that they could…

  • Like Icare

    From my point of view she might as well have had an abortion – cause I never had any desire or need to watch that movie.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    Arrival was OK. Honestly, the more I think about the movie after watching it the less I like it. For a movie that aimed to portray a “realistic, thinking-man’s sci-if,” there was still a lot of Hollywood bullshit tucked in.

    #1: The military “rebellion” that results in a bomb being planted in the spaceship. How was that supposed to make sense? First of all, the military units responding to a landed alien spaceship wouldn’t be your average-joe soldiers: they would be highly trained and disciplined special operations units. At the start, it seems like we have the latter: the soldiers show the science team “the ropes,” introducing them to the reverse gravity and alien beings inside the ship in a very cool and confident manner. They have this “been there, done that” sort of vibe that one would expect from spec ops troops. But then, one of the soldiers watches a video on the internet and abruptly decides to smuggle a makeshift bomb onto the ship in a half-assed effort to destroy it. WHAT? They also mention that they want to “avoid bloodshed,” but then they let the scientists walk into the room on the ship where they just planted the bomb. WHAT?

    #2: The military/government officials who try to obstruct the scientists at every turn for no good reason. It was almost as bad as the “angry black police chief” troupe, as if the filmmakers couldn’t come up with a legitimate reason to have a buildup of tension or adversity for the heroes to overcome. “We need some suspense, any ideas? I’ve got it, we’ll throw in the classic cookie cutter bad guy from the pentagon who is bad because he works in government meme. That should work.” WHAT? I thought this was a thinking-man’s sci fi?

    #3: The false dilemma bomb scene that existed only because the filmmakers wanted a moment of “sacrifice” to tear the audience up: going back to the rediculous sabotage-by-makeshift-bomb part, what the hell was up with that scene anyways? It was already established that ship the aliens arrived in was constructed of some highly advanced alloy that could be manipulated at will. It was also established that the aliens were capable of manipulating gravity inside/around their spaceship. But then, when the heroes are talking to the aliens and the aliens notice a time-bomb ticking off behind them, what do they do? THEY KNOCK ON THE FUCKING GLASS. WHAT? I half expected to hear a laugh track start playing during that scene. Why not transfer the scientists to a different room? Why not suck them out of that room by reversing gravity? Why not surround the bomb with a temporary wall to contain the blast? Why not put the scientists inside one of those safe capsules that they send down to pick up Amy Adams near the end? But no, these incredibly advanced aliens who know the future are content to stand there rapping on the glass (waiting to the VERY last possible moment to force the scientists out of the chamber, which they could have done far earlier). WHAT?

    Arrival is overrated. It’s not as smart as people are saying it is. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad movie by any means, but it wasn’t that great either.

  • LameSame

    Yep, spaghetti.

    It now occurs to me that I have no idea why RLM doesn’t do another narrative show. The narrative segments in HitB have some of my favorite fucking comedic moments ever. They’ve come a long way since The Grabowskis, and even that show is hilarious.

  • RLMkeepitup

    maybe, their release schedule is sporadic though so its hard to follow any narrative. not that there needs to be a continuous one. i miss that stuff too

  • Pulp

    Holy *hit of Institoris.
    Just watched The Witch. This film is so accurate on so many levels. Fascinating to see and hear someone combined this material into a movie. Especially the witch imagery (inspired by Hans Baldung 1508) is spellbinding.

    Only one detail was left out, sort of. heee
    The devil collects the sperm of men through witches or other means, so that he can pass it on to another witch (to breed witch children). In the case of the movie, it’s going to be and it’s from …

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Exactly! I suppose Twitch is their revenue generator but it seems like a step-down (but not invalid, I get why people watch people play video games) way for RLM to be competing with children for money. Maybe a movie is out of the question, but a web-series should be do-able and may even lead to other, greater things. The testicle is in your court, RLM.

  • kylemz

    I saw that a couple of weeks ago. It really took its subject and setting seriously. I was thinking after the early scenes that this is where we would normally see the screen go black, and then we would see that it is our time, and what happened in the 17th century scenes had some silly connection to a young woman living in a Massachusetts apartment now standing where the witch once was.

  • bleurgh

    I saw it and I regret it.

  • Kasey Fluckiger

    Well that’s 100% bullshit. Good job throwing out the ability to critique any art.

    Both your comparison to Juno and your assessment that there would be no movie here without this specific conflict are lazy and wrong.

    Following up a question about a moral dilemma by saying “because there would be no movie then” has some validity.

    Making that same assessment of any question about a technical problem is just dumb.

  • Pulp

    Here in south Germany there were a lot of witch trials driven by various motivations and ulterior motives. Some are obscure, like with an 11 year old shepherd boy accused of witchcraft and killing of his siblings (1668). He was put to death via blood-letting in water, followed by a post mortem burning of the body. (I’m presuming he had a favorite goat he spoke to … once too often). And of course all those claims of witches signing contracts with a well dressed man, it’s all there and part of the collective logic of the time and that made the movie interesting.

  • RLMkeepitup

    commentary track ?

  • Lute Hende

    “Witch hunting” is still happening all over the world. In family, in school, in our daily life. Because we can only be the “good” if someone else takes the role of the bad guy. It’s in our DNA leading to a group dynamic process in which we have to exclude individuals from our our community in order to make sure we are still on the “right” side.

    In my area, there were two stereotypical types of witch trails. Local women accusing non-local women of witchcraft & city council members accusing widows of witchcraft, to cash in their property. Ad in religion and pre-Christian superstition beliefs; you have your witch trail. Call it DNA or the Whisperer, either way there resides something inherited within the hearts of men.

  • It wouldn’t be a case of “sick aliens make us sick”, it would be a case of them bringing along something that they don’t even consider disease that by chance is just dangerous to us. The likelihood of whether or not a disease could be shared between species is hard to gauge, because we can’t possibly at this point imagine how a biological entity would function if it had developed in completely different conditions. They might not even be carbon-based for all we know – or maybe all life needs to be carbon-based! We really don’t know. (Or do we, I don’t know)

  • No Name

    Mike’s criticism about horror movies is so to the point.

    You are confusing those few really small additions with the rest of the story.

    When people are praising it they do it for the majority of the movie and its themes and subjects, not because of those few additions.

    Which were dumb. Those soldiers didnt even want to destroy the ship… they went for the “shot across the bow” which is even stupider.
    Its not just that they went against the whole chain of command and committed high treason, but they apparently couldnt figure out that setting off explosives would be declaration of war on so far very peaceful aliens who can travel faster then light and can shift gravity around.

    But despite those nonsensical additions – the movie actually translates the whole story almost word for word and that is why its great.

    I just watched it. And it made two rednecks next to me fall asleep. That was awesome.

    Also, they didnt just “knock on the glass”. (You dont know if it is just glass)They tried to -point out something – using human movement – because they didnt know how to “say it” and then they “knocked harder” = shifted gravity in order to send two humans flying out of danger in a very controlled manner.

  • Surface Reflection

    They dont think in such linear ways.

    Read the story.

  • Surface Reflection

    Dont use the dirty word “sci-fi” to describe this you uneducated dimwits. This is Science Fiction.

    The Incontinence day is “sci-fi”. The revenge of shit is “sci-fi”.

    There is a huge difference between the two.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    The “rest of the story”? What story? The whole movie is about a woman who looses a daughter and goes through a break-up. The movie also dabbles with the themes of fate and free-will. That’s about it. The “alien” stuff in the middle doesn’t even matter: you could take that stuff out and it would literally make no difference to the overall story. What are the aliens there for? They are there so the filmmakers can have an excuse to tell a simple story in a convoluted way that makes it seem like something really important is happening or that the film is “smart.” The thing is, nothing important happens. The film isn’t smart. It’s just a convoluted narrative with some Hollywood clichés baked-in.

  • Surface Reflection

    Thats why i said you need to read the original story.
    Of course you will refuse that in order to keep your emotional satisfaction going.

    The Story is about how humans perceive time, how hypothetical aliens might perceive time, how language can influence that and how all that may influence and make communication with aliens very difficult.

    Its also about the story of your life.

  • JAGUART

    I would totally watch “The Inside” if Rich Evans was Plinkett playing Redd Herring.

  • TheVerySpecialK

    The story is weak, it’s tedious and it ultimately goes nowhere. The time stuff isn’t what the story is actually about; that’s just one of the themes that the film addresses which so happens to intersect with the story. There are a lot of themes in this film: time, fate, international relations, cultural interaction, the list goes on. Now, you could say the story is about one of those things. You could make the case that the story is about time, about aliens, about how humans are a bunch of fearful animals who turn on each other the moment shit hits the fan. However, you would be wrong each and every time. This is, in fact, a story about a woman’s life and the things that happen to her. She meets a guy, has a kid, breaks up, looses the kid. That’s it.

  • Mike and Jay once made a joke when reviewing Paranormal Activity 4 that maybe these movie phenomena are attempting to target their audience of “upper class folk who live in houses”… but in this case they’ve maybe realized they can only squeeze so much money out of one demographic and so they’ve moved onto “middle class people who live in houses with their families”. I wonder if what they’re going for is a level of relatability through showing us things that are familiar to us. Like “ooh isn’t that scary, that thing is in a house – I live in a house! That could be in my house! Those characters have a family! I have a family!” If that’s the case it’s obviously a very reductive consensus on what people find “scary”, and I’m sure it’ll soon wear off on the average moviegoer eventually.

  • Richtard

    Good job TheVerySpecialK. When you argue someone in to a corner and they start calling you “imbecile”, “idiot”, and “cognitive dissonant retard”, then you know you won the argument.
    I agree. Contrived and unnecessary drama. If this was supposed to be a realistic movie about humanity’s response to an alien encounter, then (at least in the US) the military would take a back seat to the state department and the operation would not be run by a pants shitting colonel. The lowest ranking military person on site would be like a panel of 4-star generals and nearly all of the DOD personnel involved would be civilians (you know the people who make up 9/10 of the DOD). If anything, weapons would not be anywhere near that site, except to maintain order on the perimeter from the nut job weirdo humans who want to touch the shiny space ship. But access control would tightly regulated and monitored (no Amy Adams running across an open field to board the space ship crap, etc).
    And what was up with then end? Pointing guns at the lady using a cell phone? NO!!!! Drop your guns, run after her, tackle her, punch her in the face, and take the phone. Dear Lord it’s like they were dealing with a suicide bomber holding a hostage or something.

    Also, you dont run after and try to tackle someone spewing extremely classified information to your enemy. You shoot them and then ask questions.
    Plus, she locked herself in that room so they could not run after her and “tackle her down”.

  • Richtard

    Actually no…. you don’t shoot people spewing classified information. That’s called murder. And China may have been “the enemy” in the movie but they weren’t the enemy of the United States in the movie. America was about to join China and Russia in a military operation to attack the alien ships. Why did the military and CIA get so uptight about her phone call again?… Inflated drama! And you got sucked right in to it. The movie turned your brain off and had its way with you my friend.

    Those doors are decontamination room doors brought in by the military. Those doors lock from the outside, if they lock at all. She could have locked herself in a different room but the whole movie (outside the college, flashbacks, and spaceship) takes place in a tent and shanty plywood city. The doors can be opened real easy….. Open door, punch, take phone. Repeat as needed.

    The original story? This is a movie review site, not a book review site. That stuff was in the movie so any comments in that regard are valid. The militaries (Chinese, American, Russian, etc) provided the major drama impetus in the movie i.e. shooting at alien space ships, trying to blow up aliens, pointing guns at the main characters, miscommunication issues, shutting down the comm links, etc. You take out the military stuff, and you don’t have much of a DRAMA movie.

    The soldiers portrayed in the movie were insultingly ignorant and one dimensional. Read prior comments for edification.

    “You shoot them and then ask questions.”….. And we would be the cretins, cognitive dissonant retards, imbeciles, bumb, and idiots? If that is the measure of your reasoning, then right back at you buddy.

    If you bothered to read my first post in this exchange you would see (if you were not so fucking stupid you are practically a blind screaming imbecile) that i agree with the notion that military stuff is dumb. But that doesnt detract too much from the core of the story, which is good because of the reasons i presented and explained.

  • frankelee

    So I finally saw Arrival. After Mike’s praising review about it being smart sci-fi my expectations started too high. I was waiting to see the inevitable “the Army contacts the scientist man to work for them,” scene, and was thinking, “Oh good, we’ll skip that whole stupid military helicopter lands outside your house shit because this movie’s too smart for it,” and then a helicopter lands outside Amy Adams’ house.

    And then the military is in charge of communicating with the aliens, which they wouldn’t be in America. But government’s complicated, and government agencies have a bunch of names, it’s all too much for a screenwriter, so instead of civilian authorities like the President running the show, it’s a colonel. Aliens don’t even rate for enough for a rear admiral to make an appearance, all they could spare was a colonel. That wasn’t a huge deal, I just thought, intelligent sci-fi and all, we’d skip Hollywood’s “Big Military Tropes” (of which the CIA is included as if they were a conjoined part of the military).

    Then Amy Adams sees the future and uses it to know her daughter’s life better instead of something useful like a man would do.

  • Boldizar

    I can’t believe these hacks liked Arrival and not Interstellar. Interstellar actually worked to try and communicate abstract ideas that we are dimensionally bound to being incapable of understanding. It was a human to human thing. Arrival was stupid drivel that was absent of any attempt to communicate with the audience, amounting to detail absent plot and “Mothers! Circles!” It wasn’t grounded in anything that made sense.

    The film even has to stop half way through because the filmkaers realized in editing how boring it was. Quick! BBC montage! Bland, empty cinematography and bad editing. Bad cartoon effects. This movie was incompetent and I can’t believe no one seems to see it.

  • Boldizar
