Knowing (2009)

Something very bad is going to happen and Nicholas Cage is the only person who knows what it is.  Where have I heard this before?  Of course, he is a professor of astrophysics at MIT and he has the fake chalkboard math formula behind him to prove it.  Why would that formula be there anyway?  He was teaching the class the difference between determinism and randomness.  Is that astrophysics?  Anyway, Nick does not spend much time in the classroom because he knows stuff and he needs to be right there in the middle of all of it.

This is a good looking movie and the special effects are great but the ending is kind of a bummer. [JAM 3/22.2009]
