    Hilarious, when those two are on fire....
    The scene when they have to identify a male corps...

    Arrival (2016)

    Some of the sentimental and confusing aspects I found a bit irritating, but overall I liked this one quite a lot.

    There's less of the usual, noisy violence you'll often see in Sci-Fi, which can be a blessing.
    It's rare that I find a movie somehow strangely and positively uplifting like this one.

    Recommended.

    This and Interstellar, two of the best sci-fi in the last few years imv. Both intelligent films and both with sentiment at the forefront. Playing the old time travel card is a risky paradoxical business and yet both films managed to encourage me at least to suspend disbelief.

    Linda Ronstadt - The Sound of My Voice (2019)

    I watched this for the music and singer -- and learned a lot. It isn't "warts and all," but there is so much to cover anyway. Her versatility IMO is based on classical training and strong family roots and support, that re-emerged later in her career with performances of The Pirates of Penzance and La Boheme and in a different way with her album of Mexican song. I believe her exceptional career in pop-rock including country and R & B was also grounded in training and roots, together with exceptional energy, temperament, strategic thinking, and collaborators during a great musical era. With her outstanding voice and musicianship she went straight to the chase, focusing on song interpretation in solo and group work, rather than trying to be one of the many singer-songwriters. She draws attention to great writers of songs she covered including the lesser-known, e.g. Karla Bonoff and the McGarrigle Sisters. The film closes with her Parkinson's disease, but is never depressing. And as often with great singers what comes across is that uncanny "something" that disappears when you try to break it down into bits (including things that others do better), but considered as an integral whole puts her up with the best.
