An average movie

Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this movie but since I have a weak spot for John Travolta, I thought I should give it a try anyway. Honestly, to my surprise, I thought it was not bad at all. First of all, even though John Travolta often shows up in some rather lame movies, I still think he is actually a pretty good actor. Indeed, he has an indeniable charm and he gave here again a rather de... read more

Description: In a small town an average Joe named George Malley, becomes a different man when he is struck by a bright streak of light on his 37th birthday. George is suddenly a genius, suddenly able to play chess, speak a new language, and read numerous books in a day, amongst other abilities.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2019 (36 movies items)

" HBO Now- 2hrs. 3min. First Viewing I'll be honest; Phenomenon had me for, about, two and a half of it's three acts.
