Having seen a preview of the new Nicholas Cage movie Knowing last night (courtesy of Sam), I’ve got almost too many things to complain about. The Onion says, ‘The draggy, lurching two hours […] will make you long for the end of the world’. And they’re not wrong.

A Gnostic parable — actually, that credits it with way too much subtlety — about secret knowledge and salvation from the world (not of it), my personal highlight was the symbolism of the rabbits at the end: ‘Now you kids go breed frolic like…’

Seriously. Don’t see it. 

It’s down there with Event Horizon.
