Certainly has some very memorable images and novel ideas, none of which makes a lot of sense. I'm getting the vibe that Spielberg really wanted to make something deep and philosophical in the vein of 2001 but with really, really annoying kids instead of homicidal AIs.

My opinion, richard dreyfuss gave much better performance than he was in Jaws. And also this is much better film. I'm fan of Arrival, and I think its a good film for the same reason as Close Encounters; they both are about alien and both are so real and logic

Spielberg's original take on the Alien topic is a finely crafted and truly though provoking work. With amazing special effects and a story worth telling to make it all work. Richard Dreyfuss also brings humor and demonstrates the pains of obsession in his terrific lead performance.

Of Spielberg's earlier works, this is probably the most difficult to watch today. It just doesn’t hold up well to repeat viewings. I still enjoy Jaws and E.T. because they get the human elements right. It's the journey of their discovery that makes them special. Not so much here. The protagonist, who is a complete jerk-off, is not someone you'd root for. Also, I do wish they’d have gone with a more menacing spaceship; the colorful goofy-looking saucers screamed kid’s movie.

Oooph, this one doesn't age well. I suspect it's still held in high regard because of Spielberg's name and its ability to capture the zeitgeist of the time, but characterization is lacking in the people around Dreyfuss and it's horrendously paced, particularly at the end. You can tell Spielberg was still learning to walk as a director.

I came here for François, Vilmos, and Bob, and they did not disappoint. The rest of the film however is messy. The farther it went along, the more my interest waned. I knew it was a Spielberg film when the climax was a bunch of white dudes staring into a bright light. Also, why create such heavy familial stakes if Dreyfuss is just gonna abandon his? However, everything is far more interesting when viewed through Villeneuve's comment that the film is metaphorical for the labor of filmmaking.

I like this one much more than E.T., which I suppose makes me odd. In any case, I love every minute of it, maybe that five-note leitmotif brainwashed me. It deserves its place among the one hundred cheers.
