Hello all. Some of you may know me and some of you may not. My
name is Mike. Seth and I have been friends for awhile now and when he
started this site I decided I would like to take over writing some of
his movie reviews. The reason for this is because I watch a lot of
movies and I wanted a creative outlet to express my opinions on those
movies. Anyway enough about me on the review.

The first movie I’m going to review is Frequency. This was probably one
of the most under-rated movies of 1999. It stars Dennis Quaid and Jim
Caviezel, and is directed by Gregory Hoblit (for those of you who prefer
directors). Well the story starts off on October 10th, 1969. We see
Dennis Quaid as a fireman rushing to save some lives. After the opening
sequence showing off his characters bravery and loving home life we jump
forward to October 10th 1999. We see his son Jon all grown up and his
girlfriend/fiancée/wife (not really sure it’s not explained very well)
packing her bags and leaving.

Well after polishing a bottle of Walker Red Label at a little league baseball field, Jon goes home and sets up his dad’s old HAM radio. Well through some very interesting theoretical physics that I barely understand he makes contact with an unknown user on the band and they talk about the World Series. Through the progression of events we find out Jon’s dad died 30 years ago. You can kind of see where this is heading. Somehow bouncing of sun spots and the northern lights allows father and son to contact each other over ham radio separated by 30 years.

As comes with all time travel movies, someone always feels the
necessity of messing with the space/time continuum. We find that saving
his fathers life has altered events in away that now the mother is now
dead. So now father and son have to try and catch a serial killer who
was supposed to die year before, but didn’t, and they have to do that
before he kills his mother.

I have to say that this is a rather interesting movie. It is a
time travel movie the plot is deep enough to keep you interested but yet
not so deep that you have to keep your attention every single second.
The other nice thing, unlike other time travel movies they don’t go
overboard trying to explain the physics behind time travel. It seems
like every movie that involves this has its own set of rules. In fact
the only explanation comes from a TV interview during the movie.
So in my opinion this is definitely a movie to rent or add to
the collection if you collect movies. It’s not terribly hardcore in any
sense so you don’t feel worn out after watching it. This is a definite
