    I wanted to like this & I like Aldis Hodge but...
    Elements of each of my movie & TV reviews:

    Did I enjoy it & watch to the end?

    No I didn't enjoy it. Yes I finished it. Mad I did.

    Would I rewatch it completely?


    If not, are there enough good segments to watch certain scenes?

    Yes, the concept was intriguing. The writing got lost and it lost steam.

    Do I care for most / some of the characters?

    I tried...The wife who lost her son. The husband who is losing his wife.

    Are the movie flaws glaring or subtle enough to bypass? Glaring

    Would I recommend to someone else?


    The review: The concept was intriguing. I love sci-fi. I am also a sucker for multi-universe subject matter. However the writing got lost and the concept fell flat. The story lost its' momentum and ended poorly. By the third act we don't care.

    It's too bad because I like both actors. I really like Aldis Hodge and want more good roles for him. This movie by the second act tanked.

    Refreshing and thought provoking film
    I appreciate this movie for stimulating my mind and provoking thoughts and ideas. I truly grasped the symbolism in this movie. We go through a multitude of changes during our evolution through life.

    It is indeed difficult to impossible for some versions of ourselves to coexist in the same space.

    The former versions must die, in order for us to thrive in our current dimension/reality.

    The way she kept retreating to the forest symbolized our desire and attempts to escape and reset our present reality, only to find ourselves, sometimes, going in circles and looping. Holding on to certain feelings and ways: grief, trauma, depression, resentment, anger, lack of gratitude, etc. Impairs our ability to thrive in the present. While we are looping and wallowing in the mud of our past experiences, we abandon the joy of tasting the sweetness of the fruit we've gathered, and tarnish the beauty of the journey of life.
