Saw a Bizarre Movie

Rented a bizarre DVD over the weekend - The Fountain with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz. If you're thinking about renting it, don't. It was a strange story with an anemic script. I kept telling the spouse, who had the same opinion, "What was Jackman thinking agreeing to do this movie? The writer and director must have been on drugs." Or something to that effect.

I think the message had something to do with zen-like acceptance of death. But nothing about the telling was compelling and the movie is forgettable. I couldn't even tell you the plot. See? I've forgotten it already.

So glad to hear you had the same feeling about The Fountain that I had. I thought it was going to be a cool time travel/ fountain of youth adventure, but it turned out to be some existential load of horse cookies.

Too right, Wayne. Just goes to show ya that star power has nothing to do with quality. All the more reason for us to produce great Sci-Fi and Fantasy from a Christian perspective. Lyn
