I just finished watching “Knowing”. I’m not sure it was exactly the kick back, relaxing flick I was shooting for, but it was certainly an interesting one.
I’m still not exactly sure what I think about it. There were some interesting philosophical and theological ideas in there, but I think the thing that really bugs me is the implication of alien involvement. It just seems to me that so many movies have so much potential and then in the end cop out with the alien answer. Maybe it’s because it’s not easy to come up with “explanations” for the supernatural, but it feels like there could be so much more creativity than that.
What are your thoughts? Have you watched “Knowing? If so, what did you think? What about all of the other movies that seem to use aliens to tie up all the messy, mysterious loose ends?
