#51: Arrival — Substance of Story

This week we examine ARRIVAL and how, despite its intriguing and well-made examination of a hypothetical alien first contact situtation, it lacks any real substance. We also compare how it surprasses recent, less effective attempts at hard sci-fi: INTERSTELLAR and THE MARTIAN, but falls short of the excellent GRAVITY. Royalty free music from Bensound.
