#611: Loving / Arrival / Hacksaw Ridge

Aliens come to movie screens in a few different ways. Sometimes they come in peace; sometimes they come to destroy; and sometimes… well sometimes they just come. In ARRIVAL, the new sci-fi film from SICARIO director Denis Villeneuve, they do just come - and it’s up to Amy Adams' language specialist to figure out why. On this week's show, Josh and guest host Michael Phillips have a review. Plus, thoughts on Jeff Nichols’ LOVING and Mel Gibson's HACKSAW RIDGE.
