What the Bleep Do We Know!? [DVD] (2004) <b>DVD</b> ~ Marlee Matlin

I watched this film out of curiosity- having an interest in philosophy and quantum physics myself, but also having seen and heard so many mixed reviews/opinions.

I watched this with an open mind, wanting to see good in it. Unfortunately, it left me with a bad taste. The film opens with impressive special effects, and proposes to tackle the central question of "what is reality". Not long after this however, we are told that "mystery" is the only answer were likely to find.

The underlying theme in this film being presented by the individuals speaking, is that we create our reality. The actual evidence they present for this idea, however, fails to convince me… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars overrated...., 26 Mar 2007
I mistakenly remembered this story from my childhood as being 'one of the classics'. Its not until I've viewed this a number of times recently that i changed my mind.

Rememberance of the Daleks, in terms of 'dalek stories' is amoung the worst. It would most definately be unfair to compare it to "genesis of the Daleks", but even revelation, or ressurection are masterpieces compared to this! Rememberance, is more on par with "destiny of the daleks".

The Daleks look more cheap and wobbly than ever, Davros is reduced to squealing "have pity on meeee", and Sylvester McCoys performance is summed up in one word: embarassing.

Certainly, however, compared to McCoys… Read more
