He lays the photos out on the floor and the burn marks form a cross with a hook at the bottom, the unmistakable emblem of '70s hard rockers Blue Oyster Cult. Hey, didn't they have a big hit called "(Don't Fear) the Reaping"?

Between effects-shots is a whole movie of people discussing how fascinating things are.

If you had to choose between watching this and suffering boils, take the option which at least you can treat with a cream rather than years of expensive therapy

It's a sad state of affairs when the fit of Hilary Swank's casual slacks is more interesting than a plague of locusts.
