Hello World!

I finally saw 'Frequency' yesterday, after missing it when it appeared in cinemas. Fortunately it doesn't seem like a film that lost a lot in the move from the big to the small screen, and if I hadn't just gone to see 'Crouching Tiger' a few weeks ago I'd have said this was the best film I'd seen in a long while :).

But even with a position as second-best recent film it's still really good. Many of the ways in which the timetravel issue was handled were very original (I wasn't expecting John to remember both the 'old' and the 'new' timelines), and I certainly wasn't expecting the ending, though I'm not really sure yet if I found that very believable. It's also a pity they couldn't just end the film after the bad guy was killed - the baseball scene at the end just seemed to be added on for no real purpose. Great film, but a disappointing end.
