Dennis Harvey 48 Hills This is the sort of enterprise you need to slow down your viewing pulse for, in order to receive an experience truly worthy of the term “transcendental cinema.” Apr 4, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member after his bride died suddenly, an insurance agent was angry with God for not saving her, then he got a book call Lister Dies aka Book of Days that list down the names of people and their death dates. when he try to save some of them, their lives got extended but his own life got shortened... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A nice light hearted film. Not over the top and very simple. A well done movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member In Star Trek, Wil Wheaton was a god, unfortunately in this he just looks like a confused little kid. His very new wife is killed in a car accident & he yells at God for taking her, so God pays him back by giving him access to a book that lists when everyone, now living, will die. Maybe it's just me but it didn't look like it could hold 6 billion names, nor were there any non-American names in it. It's watchable, but only just. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent TV movie. Not too complex but not simple either. The acting is good and the concept is executed very well. A nice way to spend 2 hours on a cold wet day. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was kind of eerie for me. It made me think about alot of stuff and was pretty interesting. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Makes one wonder, I know I always have...
