5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic film, 8 Jan 2011
This review is from: Contact [Blu-ray] [1997] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This film is one of my favourite movies of all time. I usually need to watch it once a year to maintain a sort of stability for my thoughts.
An intelligent sci-fi movie that may not be everyones cup of tea - but this film is my Earl Grey rather than my PG Tips. There is a huge 2 hour build up to the alien encounter itself - but what happens made a lot of people dislike the movie - but I liked the result. I don't want to go into details here for those who wish to watch it - judge for yourself when you see it. While a lot of sci-fi movies require you to leave your brain in the other room, others require you to take it with you into the room and for you to have a little play and think - this movie requires you to use it and challenges it. And no - not quite 2001: Space Odyssey level - which requires you to use your brain like a Rubik Cube. And certainly more drama focuses than other sci-fi movies. But of course - all sci-fi movies fall into another genre anyway.
Jodi Foster never looked so good. And in Hi-Def, that's 1080p as good!!!

Recommended strongly.
