This past weekend, Arrival hit theaters worldwide and was met with overall positive criticism. The film deals with the arrival of aliens on Earth and a select group of human scientists and professors who are tasked with figuring out the motive of the alien visitors before its too late. Many who saw it have called this film “thoughtful” and “smart”. Let’s explore some other films that have been put in this same category throughout the years.
Tyler considers himself to be a true lover of movies and the magic that goes into making them. He spends most of his free time watching and absorbing film and television. From a very young age, film was an escape and an adventure that Tyler could never get enough of. Throughout his high school years he had the honor of working on an award winning independent short film, hosting a film reviewing segment on a public access station, working at two movie theaters, and attending a film festival as a young journalist for his cousin’s local paper. He is the one person that would never turn down going to a theater or staying home and watching a movie and talking about it immediately after. Tyler’s goal in life is to one day be one of the great writers and directors of the entertainment industry like his hero Steven Spielberg.
