    Did any one stop up late for this film the other night/early morning 1.20am?:eek:

    For anyone who is a fan of The Invaders or likes conspiracy theories this would just be up your street.
    The special effects were good and the suspense had my heart racing as you never know which way the plot is going to end. Shame the BBC did not deem to screen it in W/S but 4:3 :thumbsdow
    It unfortunately came out about the same time as ID4 which got all the publicity.
    I won’t say too much about the plot as I do not want to spoil the surprises for you. Just if you missed look out for it next time.

    I saw that advertised and was thinking of getting it, I know the The Arrival 2 has had really bad reviews but could you tell me if both are in W/S or not. On most sites it gives W/s and 4:3:confused:

    I'd seen that before and liked it. Always remember the bath through the ceiling bit.

    For some reason a bit more freaky in ProLogic.:confused: :D

    The Arrival is w/s but letterboxed. It does have a dd 5.1 soundtrack though.
    The Arrival 2 is also w/s letterbox although it states 4.3 widescreen on the back cover.
    I thought The Arrival was excellent too (did you know it was
    directed by David Twohy who also directed Pitch Black?) but
    The Arrival 2 was a bit of a let-down imo (totally different cast
    and director). I think I only paid about a tenner for the set about
    18 months ago so, all in all, good vfm.
