I finally got around to watching this excuse for a Nicolas Cage film, courtesy of RedBox DVD rentals. It was my first time using Redbox as well, which experience was smoother and more professional than the movie presentation, but this being a blog about science fiction and not about automated retail merchandising, suffice it to say that Redbox was easy to use, simple to use, completely inexpensive (if it took real money instead of plastic, most kids could scrounge up the rental fee off the street …

Worst movie ever. Nicholas cage has successfully ruined his career with horrible sci-fi nonsense. How does a movie like this get produced?

   Movies that have the premise of end times are a dime-a-dozen. There have been some successes and quite a few failures. I loved “Dark City” so when I heard that director Alex Proyas is at the helm of “KNOWING”, I was once again curious and made time to see it. The story is crafted by novelist Ryne Douglas Pearson and carries a thought-provoking idea that asks the viewer to ponder certain questions about our existence. Are all these things around us products …

Nicholas Cage stars in one of his better films as a widowed father who is raising a son (Kaleb).  On the 50th anniversary of a time capule at Kaleb's school, the time capsule is to be opened.  The audience got to see the time capsule being created in 1959 where the students were asked to draw pictures of what they thought the world would be like in 50 years.        One of the girls just put a series of what appeared to be random numbers.  This girl appeared …

The end of the world is the most heated and talked about discussion in Human history. No one  knows when it will be and no one knows  what will happen, but  we all know in some way  that it's coming. Knowing gives us a very intelligent spin on  how  the world might end  through ideas from the last book of the bible Revelation that talk about  the end of the world and the second coming of God.  But  while it doesn't have a hundred percent  take …

This movie deserves to be more widely known (pun intended). While exploring apocalyptic themes is a sure way to attract attention to a movie, most suffer from what I call the fallacy of intrinsic compelling-ness: writers and producers seem to think that just because the theme or plot is apocalyptic, people will be interested even if the story doesn't make sense, the characters are wooden or engagement with ideas is superficial and cliched. Fortunately Alex Proyas' new movie largely avoids that problem …

 "Knowing" ... where do I begin?    My girlfriend had wanted to see this movie after seeing many previews for it.  I figured I would give it a try because it couldn't be any worse than "The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008)." Well ... it was close.    The movie begins in 1959 with a young girl (Lucinda) hearing whispers in her head. Her classmates are drawing pictures to place into a time capsule, while the voices force her to write down a long series …

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):     1. Massachusetts schoolgirl foresees grim numbers for the future.   2. She tries to write them all down, but runs out of time before they get sealed in a time capsule.   3. Her numbers sit there until 2009 when the capsule is opened.   4. MIT Astrophysics professor and single parent (Nicolas Cage) happens upon them and starts unraveling their meaning.   5. So far, so good   6. He finally …
