I am surprised this is rated so average. I would have expected something much higher given the cast and crew. Plus the trailer looked absolutely incredible. Jeff Nichols is the mastermind who brought us Mud and the up coming Loving that I absolutely want to see. I don't know why I have taken so long to watch this. It's time now though.

That was so much different than I expected, but s... read more

The Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century (40 movies items)

"Director Jeff Nichols (Loving) pays homage to Spielberg's Seventies and Eighties classics with this moving story of an unusual child and the father who would go to any length to protect him. Alton Meyer is a strange kid who has a penchant for tuning into frequencies no human ears can pick up (like, say, intelligence agency satellites) and can do amazing things with his eyes. Naturally, this makes him a person of interest to both religious cults and government spooks. As we hit the road with our "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2016 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing Too slow and monotonous for its own good, Midnight Special is, nevertheless, a thought sci-fi film about fatherhood. While I wouldn't say that I was in love with a lot of it, the plot felt undercooked and the ending was a mixed bag, I can say that there was too much good to write it off. The cast is excellent, the look and style evoke 1970s flicks, and there are some genuinely lovely moments. If Nichols had just had a clearer vision of what he wanted, the film wou"

"Im really starting to like Jeff Nichols movies. First Mud, then Take Shelter and now Midnight Special. His film making skills as a writer is steady and that final touch as a director is always satisfying, touching and chilling. Very remarkable."

The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2017 (394 movies items)

"Midnight Special is a modern day science fiction movie with a very old school feel running through its veins. It's about an eight-year-old boy who possesses otherworldly powers on the run with his father from the Feds and a religious cult. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the boy's powers and how in the end some of the answer is revealed (not all though) in a captivating way. The story, written by Jeff Nichols, is a very good one and at the heart of that story is a rather beautiful relationship"

" 1 January.  A boy with unusual powers, together with his father and a friend are on the run from authorities bound to a place that may provide the answers to their mystery. Midnight Special is a Spielberg meets Cronenberg ride to one big reveal in the end. "
