    With the advent of AI, it's more probable that if there are aliens they are just another robot race created by a biological race that just got there sooner. The alien robots are just waiting for our own robots to become more independent that's when they will make contact.

    I watched this movie when it came out and hated it. Your explanation clarified so much, I’m excited to watch it again

    I like the purpose of the videos on the channel; but why not call your channel FilmsExplained or CinemaExplained? It's less confusing.

    The movie is over 9000 percent better if you turn it off before the ending.

    After passing on plans for the greatest transport device the planet Earth had ever seen, the aliens, disguised as humans, relay an ambiguous message to mankind.
    For me at least, the ending didn't make a whole lot of sense. Were we to assume Arroway returned with a better appreciation for the concept of God? That's fine... but WHY? Were the aliens spiritual, trying to pass on a spiritual message? Who knows exactly! While the ending didn't completely ruin the film, it certainly did it no favors. On the strength of everything that occurred in this movie right up to the point of actual physical contact, I rate it a B- (when I'm feeling kind), a C+ (when I'm being realistic), and a D+ (when I'm thinking the ending really DID Ruin the picture). Taken altogether, I rate this film a solid C... Good to watch once on a rainy day, then tossed aside, never to be bothered with again!
    But HEY--- That's only MY opinion. Judge for yourselves science fiction fans...

    This was a great movie until the appearance of the space travel machine built from alien blueprints. The likelihood of humanity understanding such technology is approximately zero. It’s like asking a prehistoric Neanderthal to build a computer or a stereo

    If you believe in a magical man in the sky, you are actively holding us back from creating a utopia here on earth. Shame on you.

    The real problem finding another "civilization"is that,it takes light years to get"messages"back and forth...meaning that if I,with the proper gear,send a message to aliens,it will take more than a few lifetimes to get an answer back....That's how vast the cosmos is.

    They didn't show him an early rough cut? It was a summer blockbuster release. It could've been 'okay to go' in December 1996 for Sagan to see. It was probably ready to be viewed billions and billions of nanominutes before he died on Jenna Jameson's wedding day and the release of Beavis and Butthead do America.

    Excellent film, but it's total misinformation and globalist propaganda (of which Carl Sagan was a prime purveyor and perhaps in league with the C.I.A.) WAKE UP PEOPLE. We have been in touch with alien intelligence since that UFO crashed in Germany's Black Forest in, what, 1937? Since Hitler had, like, 70% of all the engineers & scientists in the world, they began to reverse-engineer the UFO's technology, including gravity drive. And our spies, of course, began to watch them.
    At war's end, our O.S.S.'s "Operation Paperclip" scooped up most of those German scientists and brought them to the USA. One young officer who took part in that was John F. Kennedy, who was attache' for James Forrestall, Secretary of the Navy and a principal in "Paperclip." Werner von Braun, who designed our Saturn 5 moon rocket, was a Nazi scientist.
    After 2 UFO crashes near Roswell, NM, in 1947, our scientists had even more UFO material to analyze. Congress soon passed the National Security Act of 1947 to keep this information secret, forever, and establish the C.I.A. As time passed even more alien contacts were made. The REAL story is far more compelling than this manipulative fiction that was conceived to keep YOU ignorant, with its intriguing fantasy. The whole SETI thing is a giant waste of money, designed to keep everyone in the dark. Grow up, learn the truth, and demand disclosure, for God's sake!
