By the popular demand of four listeners (two of whom we don't know personally), as a special Xmas expedition, Dave and Elise tackle a movie that's in the theatres for the first time since INTERSTELLAR. And it's a movie that's been compared to INTERSTELLAR, but we don't think so. We hated that fucking thing. But we don't hate Denis Villeneuve's ARRIVAL (2016), which managed to be philosophical without having any guys fighting on desolate planets in space suits. Although by all means, if that's what you like. Also, there's stuff about time in it, which is what we're all here for. So we hope that you find this pleasant holiday listening. Enjoy!
