Brian´s idea for the end is excellent.
I like it.
It could be:
"Contact II: This time it's our fists"
...I'm sorry Kwang, but I don't get it. Then again I'm pretty dense most of the time.
Does not need a sequel, shouldn't have one. The story was great, the impact wonderful. A sequel cheapens everything about it, including the message.
The big question is...
what would the aliens have thought had the dummy "Elmer" arrived at their meeting place?
"The earthlings must be idiots"
I would love to see a sequel. It starts with a government employee finding the secret report with 18 hours of static. He releases it on Wikileaks. They discover why the recorder didn’t work and they fix that problem. They send a lot of other people who confirm that Ellie was telling the truth.
The proof of life on other planets starts people asking if religion is real. More and more start to think like Ellie.
Why would proof of life on other planets cause people to debate the reality of religion or a belief in God? There is nothing to say that any Aliens that we meet may not have their own God or creation construct.
Religion on earth is pretty specific to earth and human beings. Remember, heaven is above and hell is below. Imagine their methods of thinking being way way different from ours.
Watching this in 2019. I'm not a scientist or religious but this movie meant a lot to me not just because I love jodie.. It was thought provoking and showed us just how paranoid, insecure and controlling we as a human race are. Still so and in some ways even worse today. But it did ask questions we all still want to know. Deep down we still want to know if we are alone or if there really is life out there.
The beauty of this film is that it allows you to make up your own mind and not be spoon fed by media propaganda and disinformation, but for you to go find out yourself..you have your own minds with your own thoughts. You are entitled to your own opinions.
I for one wish a sequel comes. Doesn't have to be jodie but would be just as good either way.
