There is more than just science ... God said so.
16 February 2010 | by (the Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Innocence and kindness can allow amazing things to occur.

St. Paul states that there are angels coming and going on earth all the time (but we usually will not recognize them as such).

Why does the Bible state this? To me, it means that there are a lot of things occurring all the time which are beyond the "ordinary" world.

There are literally 1000s of (otherwise) ordinary people who have seen UFOs. What are UFOs? I don't know, and I don't care. Heck, for that matter, What are angels? I don't know, and I don't care (I just know that angels exist).

So, here is a movie which chronicles the sighting of a UFO (and a man who claims to be from another planet). Arnold says he builds pod-malls on another planet. OK.

This movie is a fantasy. It takes us through the trials and tribulations of not only (1) seeing a UFO, but also (2) telling others that you have seen a UFO -- and a man who claims to fly it.

Beau Bridges is very good as an interplanetary designer. Richard Mulligan turns in a bravura performance as a simple, believing man. The cast is rounded out with many familiar faces, including 2 others who see the spaceship taking off (after meeting Arnold).

So, as far as Christmas movies go, this is a wonderful chance to "Let Go" of having the universe in a box, and see the way others deal with their beliefs.
