Murder mystery space time continuum ham baseball fire fighter movie

Last night I watched a movie I hadn’t seen in years. I had a couple of good actors and used plot devices that I am into.

The movie: Frequency (2000)
Starring: Denis Quaid and James Caviezel
Device:  Aurora Borealis and Ham Radio

Oh yes, there is also a murder mystery and screwing around with the space time continuum.  Holes in the plot but there were twists and turns that were pretty good.

Denis Quaid was also great in The Rookie, which dealt with baseball in a mainly true story.  And we all remember Caviezel in The Passion of the Christ.

And… the bonus… it was 11 September and the movie had NYC firefighters and cops.

The movie reinforces something which we should all remember:

When you screw around with the time-space continuum, watch out for those unintended consequences!

    Either sing “I’m my own granpaw” or say “Paradoxes are there to be paradoctored”(galaxy sf mag, cerca 1957).Brits mutter abt Timelords.

    My wife and I really enjoyed “Frequency.” Agree also on “The Rookie.” Caviezel is also very good in “Person of Interest” on CBS (Michael Emerson from “Lost” is, too).

    One of my favorite movies! Not only an Amateur Radio op, but also a Mets fan. Two of my favorite interests in one movie – how can you beat that!

    Caviezel was also in another great movie called “I Am David” so good it’s worth buying . Also staring the guy who played Pilot in “Passion of the Christ”. Loved” Frequency”, and that space and time thing? Wait until we really get that thing that happens during mass. And hey! Go Tigers!

    You’d think science fiction about altering the spacetime continuum would be the last place we’d hear preached the message that actions have consequences… and oddly enough, it very well may be the last place we’ll hear that message preached.

    Go figure.
