takes the suspense out of the movie a little....


What did she figure out 20 minutes into it?

I didn't really think there was a twist with the exception of the "swing away" premonition his wife made near the end of the movie and the little girls's OCD water glass problem that ended up saving the day. Other than that it was a pretty straight forward alien invasion movie.


the water, she figured it would be what saved the day... i don't remember the swing away thing...

I just wanted to state, that it was not me who voted for Man on Fire. I voted for Terminator. Excellent movie ;-D

I luv any Denzel movie - but Terminator is just too much of a classic not to give it the nod!

I like Shamalamadingdong too....I even kinda liked Lady in the Water. O:-)

I try my hardest not to try to figure out the story before it's unfolded and simply enjoy the films I see, then reflect on them later.

I've tried to do that more in my older age... but that punk is just ridiculously easy... so I just don't watch him anymore.
