Why? Why do people associate "rain" with bad weather? Maybe it's because it can bring destruction on a colossal scale? But heatwaves also can bring destruction, so I don't know.

Rainy days are the best, at least for me. The sound of the empty streets echoing with the droplets of rain hitting the windows is priceless, and for a brief moment we might forget that the natural order, might well be disorder. Chaos.

I thoroughly enjoyed how the movie's slow pace keeps everything in a calm state, a nice contrast to virtually any alien film.

I won't say much to avoid spoilers, but I'll tell you this; go watch Arrival!

Now I really want to read the book.

Enough of rambling for today.

Thanks for reading, and have a nice one!
