Déjà vu

You’re probably wondering what’s going on here. After a bit of thinking, the latest design (Bui4Ever v16) was my most ugly and boring design to date, despite being my most advanced in terms of features such as the featured post, thumbnail posts, and so forth. And despite my resolve to take my time to design and code it, I think I still rushed it. So I decided to roll back to last generation’s design (Bui4Ever v15) and incorporate features from Bui4Ever v16 until I have time to bring out Bui4Ever v17.

And speaking of Déjà vu, Andrea and I got around to watching it on DVD yesterday. It’s a story about ATF agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) conducting an investigation after a New Orleans ferry terrorist explosion killing 543 people; a majority of which were sailors from the U.S.S. Nimit. Curious clues arise, such as a young women burnt in the explosion, but an autopsy concludes she died a hour prior to the incident.

Carlin is asked to be part of a special project under the supervision of FBI agent Andrew Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) which has a device using the Einstein-Rosen bridge theory allows the team to look back fours days and six hours into the past in a limited range. Carlin, Pryzwarra, and the others must look for clues that somehow tie the women’s mysterious circumstances, the death of 543 people, the ferry explosion, and the identity of the killer to catch the killer before the killer strikes again.

It’s an interesting premise and the story is captivating. Clues are riddled everywhere with no sense until the last 30 minutes of the movie when things all start making sense. I use to enjoy Denzel Washington, but I think he choses roles that are too predictable and is afraid to experiment; as he either plays the super hero or the super villain. Andrea and I both noticed that Val Kilmer has put on quite a bit of weight (Andrea: atleast 50 lbs).

The movie is worth seeing if it’s on TV, but probably not worth paying to rent. We recommend you check it out from your local library.
