Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third Kind ★★★★

This film didn't really "wow" me as much as I was anticipating. Nevertheless, it's still a very well crafted film. The score and cinematography is so eerie and beautiful. They both blend together so seamlessly and create a unique atmosphere. The famous scene involving the kid is the perfect example of that. Well, every encounter sequence is so well handled.

My problem lies with it's pacing and it's characters. At times, I found it to be slow and I wasn't emotionally invested in the characters. For me, I didn't think it was necessary to make Roy a family man. Especially considering what happens at the end of the film. Altogether though, it still comes together in a excellent finale that's well worth the wait.
