Knowing
Forget Nostradamus. In this Nick Cage flick, a young girl in the '50s draws a picture of numbers for a time capsule. Fifty years later, when the contents are examined, it turns out that those numbers indicate the dates, death tolls, and coordinates of major disasters, and a few haven't happened yet! But it's not exactly the doomsday flick fans would hope for. In his review, Jeffrey M. Anderson says: "rather than becoming a comfortable hybrid between a small, smart movie and a big, dumb movie, Knowing became a horrible mutation, bulging out in all the wrong places, with unsightly scars where the butcher's knife had been."Skip it. Also on Blu-ray.

Push
Not every Dakota Fanning movie is a shocker of a drama. In this psychic espionage thriller, she plays a "watcher" and one of the psychic rogues determined to end a creepy government agency. (Also stars Chris Evans, Djimon Hounsou, and Camilla Belle.) For this feature, Anderson said: "Push is a better-than-average sci-fi thriller with genuine jolts and unexpected texture."Rent it. Also on Blu-ray.

The Unborn
A girl is plagued with bad dreams, ghosts, and supernatural unpleasantness, so she hunts down a spiritual advisor in Gary Oldman to help. But that's not enough to help this film. Peter Martin wrote earlier this year: "Not even the sight of the lovely, lean and fit Odette Yustman, whose last name became Yowza! when the trailer and pics first hit the net, can salvage the film from mediocrity." Skip it. Also on Blu-ray.
