  • Excerpt: Ever since the dawn of time, people have been predicting the end of the world. I wonder why that is? I suppose there’s something way deep down inside us that makes us wonder when and if the world will come to an end. Or maybe it’s the fact that we know our time in Earth is finite so we prophesize about the end of days. No matter the case, people have come out with definitive dates as to the world’s end and yet here we are, still plugging along.

  • Excerpt: A good movie will often leave the viewer with unanswered questions. As it so happens, one of the most satisfying parts of the filmmaking process is to, occasionally, let the audience interpret a picture for themselves. Frankly, I appreciate films that are a little open-ended; I don’t need everything to be spelled out to enjoy it myself, and I find it fun, interesting… fulfilling to “figure it out” on my own.

Knowing Review

9 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Knowing is a disaster movie that wants to become the meaning of life. That’s stupid. Knowing sets things up with a standard explanation: Everything happens for a reason. It is an acceptable premise, even backed by some mild science. The story of John Koestler (Nicolas Cage) follows after he is given a piece of numbered paper left in a time capsule 50 years ago. Those numbers point to every major disaster in the world, with more on the way.

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Conclusion: A wise man once said that, "Knowing is half the battle." In this case, spare yourself the fight. This 'Knowing' is not worth knowing. As a Boston resident, about the only fun I had with the film was laughing at its geographical inaccuracies (the picture was actually shot in Australia and looks nothing like Boston), and then watching a CGI recreation of my office building getting blown up. That was pretty much it.

  • Conclusion: An all-around wonderful experience, Alex Proyas' Knowing delivers a nearly perfect blend of popcorn-munching entertainment, terror, suspense, and drama. It's superbly paced, well-acted, fabulously directed, and delivers plenty of spine-tingling and thought-provoking moments. Summit Entertainment's Blu-ray release sparkles from a technical perspective.

Review: Knowing

The 8th Circuit
20 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Knowing is one of those movies that I hate to review. On one hand, the film is so fundamentally flawed that I hesitate to even begin criticizing it. On the other hand, I couldn’t help but be enthralled by this thought provoking and ambitious undertaking. Knowing is the latest film from the always eccentric director, Alex Proyas (Dark City).

  • Excerpt: Nicolas Cage has brought us plenty of crazy movies in the past few years, but Knowing is a doozy of an entirely different level. Dark City and I, Robot director Alex Proyas peppers his take on the disaster movie with a whole host of other genre elements, including ghost stories, conspiracy thrillers and a dash of whacked-out sci-fi.
