Gregory Hoblit, 2000 (8.4*)
This terrific SciFi film is also a murder mystery, and it’s hard to believe it gets overlooked on SF film lists with a plot this involving. Jim Caviezal listens to short wave radio as a hobby, and has had his entire life altered by a tragedy. One night he picks up what he thinks is his deceased father’s voice, played by Dennis Quaid. His father may or may not be in an alternate reality or time period, that’s part of the mystery; there's also a potential murder in the works, yet another part of the complex plot. The beauty of good science fiction is that just about anything is possible and if well written, seems natural to the plot. This is hard to describe without any spoilers, so just make sure you watch this film!

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
