    +Ryan you should get a life instead of exhumating 11 months old topics and playing white knight

    Alien 1: So how did your contact with... what's it called... Earth go?Alien 2: Oh you know, the usual, they built the machine, sent a traveler, I gave her some cryptic information and then sent her back with no verifiable evidence that she was ever here.Alien 1: Hahaha! Her race is going to think that she's nuts! Classic!Alien 2: Yup, it'll be centuries before they waste their time trying that again.Alien 1: So did you make yourself look like one of her species?Alien 2: Even better, I turned ...

    Can you imagine the suffering that could be prevented if only the aliens provided evidence in the form of more scientific knowledge?I don't mean just the suffering of the protagonist. Think about all the developments that were purposefully delayed by the aliens so "humans can learn to cooperate by themselves" whilst millions of people die.That is fucking immoral, at least from a human standpoint. Unless they think humans could use such knowledge to produce evil technology that could be us...

    Virginity 4-life!

  • Dan Jakubik (May 27, 2018)

    Contact. One of the more intelligent and plausible science fiction films which tackles difficult subjects including social consequences, politics and religious faith.

    ............"Why build one, when you can build two for twice the price?" When I was young, I always thought "that doesn't make sense", I have worked for the government for many years. It is fucking accurate. STILL doesn't make sense, mind you....but it is accurate.

  • RDM 010 (Apr 1, 2019)

    It means governments don't care about finding a deal on what it purchases because a governments duty is to grow itself and profit its friends.

    Contact is a fantastically, brilliant movieOne of the smartest sci-fi I have seen

  • eng3d (Apr 13, 2019)

    No, it's not sci-fi. It happens when you take a real science book + Hollywood and an easily digestible crap (she is the good girl and everybody else is the bad/stupid/white-man/what-ever but is bad).

  • Rogue Ascendant (Feb 1, 2019)

    And yet after all this years, humanity are not ready yet to venture the furthest unknown. And sentient alien life out there would not welcomed us as they see us still toddlers, stone age folks who still goes bloodshed to each other and unto to our own world.

  • That Guy (Jul 11, 2018)

    What a great film, they don't make movies like this anymore.

  • SneakySneaky Snake (Apr 11, 2019)

    You sound like a boomer

  • Lex Splosion (Mar 14, 2019)

    _Interstellar_ has been mentioned already. Allow me to add _Arrival_ and _Annihilation_ to the list of great contemporary sci-fi flicks.Claiming the time of great media has ended is ridiculous. You sound like one of those kids that think they were born in the wrong generation because they happen to enjoy music like Queen or novels like Dune.

    PS when you get plans to build an alien transportation device over FM radio and they don''t include a chair in the blue prints; don't put an FN chair in it.

    Thank You! Working toward this level of succinctness! 😍

  • wysoft (Feb 1, 2019)

    that's why she got sent back so soon, the aliens were pissed off that we couldn't just follow the directions. they probably thought of us like a kid building a lego spacecraft who starts adding dinosaur blocks to it.

    Alien 1: So, did the weird mustache man come, y know, the one in black and white, speaking gibberish.Alien 2: *Nein*

  • K.C. LeJeune (Sep 2, 2018)

    Whenever Carl Sagan is mentioned I PAY ATTENTION.

  • ElectKoopa (Jan 30, 2019)

    All humans should.

  • William Anthony (Dec 11, 2018)

    Carl Sagan was a scientific cheerleader for non-scientific laymen, but little else.
