Saw three sci-fi pieces over the weekend. I'm not going to explain or review them. That would be your job, O you sci fi wunderkind. Of course, if you screw it up, I'll give you the lamebrain explanation, which you won't like at all.
"Knowing. " Angels, ETs, and GPS coordinates. A hearing aid, a little girl who could be the dead ringer for Tim Rice's weird wife as a girl, and a blatantly asked and apparently unanswered question about the meaning of the universe. Go for it. As a footnote, guessed every single major plot development before it happened, incluiding the tree in the final scene. But it was still better than some the icons I've heard you all prating about.
"Suspect Zero." Excellent cast,good acting, more GPS coordinates, and a plot premise I was familar with beforehand. I know "remote viewing" when I see it. And I know the U.S. military actually used it. So, why is it, as the better half said, far-fetched?
"Rise." Okay. Vampire pic. Different, though. Lucy Liu, Michael Chiklis, Cara Gugino, and Robert Forster Interesting take actually, if not actually a good take. Vampires who are only slightly more powerful than human beings. much sloppier eaters, and far less prevalent in the population at large. Or was the whole thing an excuse for Lucy Liu to be nude a lot? Or am I supposed to be cheered by the lack of GPS coordinates? (P.S. Michael Chiklis is not only a wimp with vampires; he's also short.)
I don't know. You're supposed to tell me. What do you tell me? Nothing.
