Quickie Movie Reviews/Thoughts  

Posted by: Isabel in , , , , , ,

Rowena and Ames have both reviewed these movies, so I'll just touch on them.

In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead. Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule's contents and the girl's cryptic message ends up in the hands of young Caleb Koestler. But it is Caleb's father, professor John Koestler, who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As John further unravels the document's chilling secrets, he realizes the document foretells three additional events -- the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve John and his son. When John's attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears, he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction from taking place. With the reluctant help of Diana Wayland and Abby Wayland, the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, John's increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster -- and the ultimate sacrifice.

Knowing was better than I expected. It kind of creeped me out. Not that it was scary. Just that I got the same feeling I get when I watch stuff on Nostrodamus or other end of the world predictions. I knew these predections weren't true but still..

As for the strangers, I thought they were creepy. Joey thought they were some kind of demon or angel. Then when they all came out, cause there was 4, Joey said they were the 4 horsemen. Then it turns out they're aliens. So I'm like... okay.... Why would aliens want to save us? But then I had just watched a show on the history channel about the theory of aliens coming during the ancient times... So you never know. I have thoughts on that but I won't get into it. ha ha. It just seemed the movie was going one way then went another.

A taxi driver gets more than get bargained for when he picks up two teen runaways. Not only does the pair possess supernatural powers, but they're also trying desperately to escape people who have made them their targets.

I remember watching the orignal movie as a child. I remember enjoying it. I expected this one to have a bit more comedy than what was actually in the movie. It was still good though. Even my hubby liked it.

I fell asleep watching Race to Witch Mountain. LOL

Also, the aliens in Knowing - did you see how they looked like angels?
