DVD Movie Show Reviews
When this show premiered, I swear they advertised it as
a series, not a mini-series. I'm guessing they may have hoped it would
become a series, but the show was not renewed, so they decided to call
it a mini-series.
I am an atheist, but I love any movie or TV show that is
about good versus evil, whether it is religious or not (as long as it's
well done and not preachy). I don't mind religious fiction as long
as it's made clear that it is fiction and the story is done well.
I don't believe in God in real life, but it's fun to watch a show where
God really does exist and where there is usually concrete proof, like
"Joan of Arcadia". I enjoy movies like "The Omen", where God and the
devil exist, and God is clearly the good guy...however, I prefer it when
God (or any good guy) wins, rather than the movies where the devil wins
or it is left undecided by the end of the movie. I also really enjoyed
the recent show "Point Pleasant", which was about a small New England
town where strange things happened because Satan's daughter came to
I didn't know if I'd like "Revelations" because some
people I know thought it was awful. Then again, those people
didn't like "Point Pleasant", either, so I don't know why I listened to
them. I was going to check out the first episode, but I missed it, and
then I didn't watch after that because I was afraid I would be lost.
I think I was right to do that because an awful lot happened in the
I'm sorry it did not return, though, because it is a
good show. Bill Pullman and the other actors do a fine job. I'm
sure that some people on both sides of the belief coin will have some
problems with it. Me, I just watch it as horror/scifi the same way
I watch The Exorcist or Rosemary's Baby. It is exciting and
keeps my interest. I watched it all last night and really enjoyed
In this movie, a skeptical professor has had his
daughter killed by a satanist. Another little girl is made
brain-dead by lightening, but she starts quoting scripture in Latin,
amazing everyone (eerie echoes of the recent real-life case of Terry Schiavo here, but I ignored them because this is fiction, not real
life). A nun (Natascha McElhone) who believes that the end of the world is near and
that Jesus might be on earth instead of in heaven visits the girl, who
then draws a picture, which leads the nun to the professor. The nun and
the professor team up to find Jesus and fight against the satanists.
He is skeptical, but she is a true believer. They had great chemistry and their pairing is very
interesting. McElhone reminds me of a young Jane Seymour. I
particularly enjoyed Isaiah Haden as the villain; he was great in "24"
The only extras on the disk are a behind-the-scenes
short and some deleted scenes. Too bad the show didn't last
longer because they did leave it open a bit at the end.
