Close Encounters of the Third Kind is really a movie of two halves for me. When it’s good, it’s really good. But when it’s dragging a little bit, it’s not that great. I think the beginning 30 and the last 30 are really solid. This is where the alien mystery comes into play which is extremely interesting because of the approach. The middle hour is just not it as the main character really jumps off a cliff and it gets away from the aliens are more to the crazy side. Overall a solid film that could have been so much more.

Overall Rating: B+
