^ following up on 'Arrival', Contact & Interstellar were suggested to me:

Contact is dated, poorly made & filmed (imo), yet had a couple of very good/interesting phases.
Interstellar I just found tiresome -- I actually gave up on it. Most voice parts delivered in a sort of a monotone that just left me jaded.
EDIT//  Dunno, maybe I'll try Interstellar again sometime - it gets very good score on imdb

Hey tomos! Yes, try it again, it was one of the best movies I saw in the last 3 years. :) (Wouldn't have minded it being a bit shorter though. 8) ) And I just saw that it even entered IMDb's Top 250 (as #33).

In a dark room, watching on a tablet, using earphones, (starts to make you imagine what lies beyond the glare of the LCD and what small sounds you're missing), and at a time well passed midnight, I watched two of the most iconic figures of horror in the last 10 years: Sadako (Ring series); Kayako (Ju-on series)

Yes, it had to happen: Sadako v Kayako

the lack of chemistry between the two really took away from it for me

You mean Gosling and Stone?  I thought they had great chemistry.  It's amazing how multiple people can see the same movie, and have such wide-ranging differences in what they see.  I've heard them compared to the Golden Age greats.

I'm always conscious others may/will see it differently. So yeah, my take on it.
I thought they had great promise initially -- him being stroppy, her quirky. Maybe it just wasn't given enough time. I did enjoy the ending, thought that worked very well. It was in the main body of the film I thought the chemistry was lacking. I'm not big on the musical approach, so maybe that left me looking for too much elsewhere.
Some great melodies, songs, music though :up:
