Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) (English)

                Director  : Steven Spielberg
                Genre     : Drama, Sci-Fi
                Cast       : Richard Dreyfuss, Fran├žois Truffaut and Teri Garr

           You know what to expect from a Spielberg movie and that is what you will get when you watch this movie..except the draaaaaggggggiiiinnnnggggg climax.Close encounters with the third kind is an English language movie released in 1977 and went on to become a big hit.
           This movie tells the story about many different characters and a close encounter they had with aliens from another world.Now if you are a UFO enthusiastic you might have heard about Hollowman Airforce base incident.Many says this movie is based on that (conspiracy) theory.It actually includes not only that incident but other two famous incidents.Missing of Flight 19 and SS Cotopaxi.So for those who loves mysteries and all those stuff this movie is a good watch.Talking about the movie,the director builds up the plot amazingly.No body can beat Spielberg to build plots so dramatically.Only glitches i felt was one, the super draggy climax with the draggy introduction of the mothership, second, the scenes in India which was super ridiculous..!!!..I lost all the respect to Spielberg after watching those scenes in India and the way he connected the story with that scene.
      Hollywood should stop making movies on stories which happens in other countries.If they don't know the culture of that country they better stay out of it, and continue making their same 'guy movies with fart jokes' or same 'action movies in which a single hero saves the whole world'.
     This movies really worth watch if you are a UFO enthusiast.Except the climax and the ridiculous Indian part i really liked the movie.It had one of the best story introduction.And the kids,there are many child actors in this movie who did their job really good.And the special effects,yes it has special effects showing the old way,using miniatures and mattes.But they are good.And in most of the places realistic.
