after a really long week I headed to the Village theater for two hours of distraction, I got more than I bargained for.
Thankfully I like Nicolas Cage and he was paired with decent costars so that acting was ummm acceptable ( i know nothing about acting except what I learned in High school drama club. )
I guess my complaint is with the utter simplicity of the writing, and the underlying premise.
Perhaps I was uncomfortable in my comfy reclining movie chair because the story seemed to LEAVE GOD OUT, and in fact to specifically make aliens our savior.
For those who have read The Book, the ending IS really messy,
but you don't have to go through it.
I won't belabor that point here, write me if you wish to discuss it, I am a good conversationalist.
The LOGIC thing is what I just can't suspend, and so it really gets me in trouble.
If your spacecraft is capable of interstellar travel why does it take 15 minutes to fold up for take off? Why is your elevator slower than anything Otis ever made?
OK here is the big one, for you big brained aliens who KNOW our future perfectly;
Why wait until a few hours before the end of the earth to save us??? huh Huh?
I got you now! Dummies, Stupido buffoons.
If you knew about this for so long how come you waited so long to move the new Adam and Eve to the next place? and while I am at it, why bring a bunch of two seater space ships when you could have made a special school bus sized Cargo ship so we could all have fun sharing cupcakes and juice boxes on our journey?
I have more, but even I am tired or reading this sillyness.
Go - have a nice day, God is in control.
