I saw that movie 'Signs' yesterday. My God, but the dialogue in it was terrible - you know it had to be bad when the little four year old girl got all the good lines. And the numerous story set-ups and pay-offs were so clumsy they made the plot of the average Scooby-Doo episode look like a model of elegance and sophistication...and Scooby-Doo was less cliched. On the plus side, the film looked great, was adequately scary, and managed to create a sense of genuine dread even though the aliens had to be the dumbest race in the history of cinema ever to achieve the capability for interstellar travel. In the meantime, in a strange case of fact mirroring fiction, Pravda reports that Israel has been occupied by aliens. Good Lord.
