"Deja Vu". Carol and I saw this movie last night. The WSJ liked it, and Christianity Today gave it 3 out of 4 stars. I would say that CT has it about right. What I found most disturbing about the movie is how much weight Val Kilmer has put on. He wasn't bad in this movie, but he was terrific in this one now 13 (!) years ago.

We saw the movie at the Shoppes of South Miami. The center was crowded and festive. In fact, the area of "downtown" South Miami along Sunset in front of the Shoppes was lively. There were a lot of teens and subteens ("tweens"?), and I saw a very young "couple" belly to belly together in a pose that made me think, "Give me a break".

We also saw lots of security. Shoppes of South Miami is not the usual sort of closed in Mall, but is uniquely open to the streets and accessible. Maybe that accounts for the extra police. I suppose they just need one bad incident and the season is killed.
