I finally sat down and watched that movie Contact.

Contact is a 1997 film based on Carl Sagan’s novel with the same name.  I didn’t expect much but it turned out to be quite the unique gem, and also a great tribute to the late scientist.

The story is about a scientist (Jodie Foster) who detects a radio message from outer space.  If you haven’t seen it then I recommend you do, if not for the great entertainment and strange twists, then at least for its serious religion/science undertones which are extremely thought-provoking.  4.5/5 stars from me.
