I was just goofing around on the Internet and found THIS review for Contact. It was down right amusing to read, actually. I personally thought Contact was a great movie. Any thoughts people?...

I would have loved to get a little more in depth with a religious character who was really sorting through how alien life impacts their faith, though I realize the film was already pretty full as is.

Dead father, creepy paternal father figure substitute, avoids male characters that want to have sex with her = send this over to Jodie Foster, the producers say.
Throughout the film we never actually bear witness to any aliens, well apart from one who takes on human form, and while it may disappoint some sci-fi fans I actually find it quite fitting as this is not so much a film about alien lifeforms as it is about humanity.
