#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In New York City, Telly Paretta has been under the psychiatric care of Dr. Jack Munce for fourteen months, the therapy to help her deal with the grief associated with losing her nine year old son, Sam Paretta, one of six children in a plane that went missing, the plane and the bodies never recovered. In the words of Telly’s husband, Jim Paretta, Telly has been holding onto the past like a “death grip”, which has hindered her therapy. Telly does not appreciate that characterization as it makes it sound like Dr. Munce and Jim want her to forget Sam. Slowly, incidents make it seem like Telly is losing that grip on the past, until one day all physical evidence of Sam disappears, personal as well as public, such as all media stories of the plane disappearance. Subsequently, Jim and Dr. Munce try to explain to her that her therapy is to help her get over the delusion that she and Jim have/had a son. As Telly alone goes on a search for any evidence of the existence of Sam, the only person she is eventually able to convince is Ash Correll, an ex-New York Ranger whose daughter Lauren allegedly was also one of the missing children. Ash, who started to drink heavily fourteen months ago, initially believed Telly to be crazy until he slowly recalls that he did indeed have a daughter named Lauren who disappeared in that plane, which led to his drinking. Telly and Ash need to go on the run as they are being pursued by the National Security Agency (NSA) on the matter, they’re unsure of the NSA’s involvement in their children’s disappearance. One other person they are able to convince of there ever having been a Sam and Lauren is NYPD Detective Ann Pope. Pope believes that two people having the same delusion is too coincidental, and the NSA being involved is too suspicious for it not to be some grand plot. Pope has to figure who she can or cannot trust in the matter in uncovering the truth. As Telly and Ash continue their search for evidence while eluding the NSA, they believe that the answer may lie with the mysterious man who seems to have appeared lately in Telly’s day-to-day goings-on.
Plot: Telly Paretta is a grieving mother struggling to cope with the loss of her 8-year-old son. She is stunned when her psychiatrist reveals that she has created eight years of memories about a son she never had. But when she meets a man who has had a similar experience, Telly embarks on a search to prove her son’s existence, and her sanity.

Julianne & A Pile Of Nothing’
Well, at least the movie has Julianne Moore. It also has a dozen plot holes and a handful of dangling threads. But there’s Julianne Moore. There’s a crackpot plot twist of “Twilight Zone” or “X Files” proportions. And then there’s Julianne Moore. Okay, she’s not the ONLY good thing in ‘The Forgotten’. Without giving anything away (and be careful of reading reviews because to explain this movie is to spoil it), a significant member of the multi-cultural cast is whooshed away in a terrific GOTCHA moment. I usually hate those, but it worked like gangbusters this time. You knew something might happen, but not THAT. I haven’t been as surprised by such a GOTCHA since Sam Jackson was torn apart by digi-sharks in ‘Deep Blue Sea’.
A psychological drama is what we get in the first 30 minutes as Telly (Moore) struggles with the recent death of her young son, Sam. Her husband (Anthony Edwards) and her therapist (Gary Sinise) are trying to convince Telly that Sam never existed. She made him up. Hmmmm. Had ‘The Forgotten’ stayed on that track with one of the best actresses in Hollywood leading the way, I’d probably be saying nice things about the movie. For some reason, director Joseph Ruben and writer Gerald Di Pego decide to awkwardly cross genres and turn this into some sort of half-assed sci-fi encounter. Government conspiracy abounds with deceptive villains and their cheesy, villainous ambitions.
I’ve been vague because there are plenty of twists & turns that are best left unrevealed for those who want to see this flick. The mother/son story is poignant, but ‘The Forgotten’ doesn’t want to be about such interesting stuff. Too bad. So Sinise gets to do nothing and Edwards does less. [He gave up ‘ER’ for wimpy supporting parts in B movies?] Dominic West—who’s just as dull as the other men in this movie—co-stars as a father who apparently lost his daughter in the same Sam-killing plane crash. Or did he? Hmmmm. Hey, did I mention that Julianne Moore is good? A fine leading performance and one super-duper shock aren’t enough to save this misguided pseudo-thriller. And let’s not speak of that wuss-out ending…
Ripoff of Dark City
Let’s say we play a game where I describe a movie plot and you guess what movie I am talking about. Here goes: This movie is a rather bizarre Sci-Fi flick in which aliens are performing experiments on humans, apparently to see what makes them tick. The humans, most of them anyway, don’t know they are the guinea pigs. In the process of performing these experiments, the aliens must erase the human’s memories.
However, there are a few rare humans who have memories that just can’t be erased. In particular, our hero, the Main Character, will have nothing to do with it, much to the astonishment and consternation of the aliens. Oh, and there is this human Psychiatrist who has sold out to the aliens and is trying to get our hero to forget. In the end, the shrink turns out not to be such a bad guy, just a wimp.
Another major character is a local police person (notice how I am trying to avoid gender in these comments) who, though very skeptical at first, begins to smell a rat and tries to help out our hero. But, before the police person can help out much, he/she is sucked out into space (bummer).
Finally, our hero is victorious and the aliens stop tinkering with memories. In the last scene, our hero, who still remembers everything, strikes up a conversation with another main character (who remembers nothing) and they hit it off once again. Proving that deep down inside us there is a soul that remains constant, even if our memories are fleeting.
Those of you who are hardcore Sci-Fi buffs are jumping up and down yelling “Dark City, Dark City”. The rest of you are saying: “No, No silly, you are talking about that movie that just came out on DVD called ‘The Forgotten'”. Of course, you are all correct.
Only difference is that Dark City got there first and is a much, much better film. If Alex Proyas will crank out a few more like Dark City I might even forgive him for I, Robot.
I know you are supposed to suspend disbelief for a Sci-Fi film, but The Forgotten asks way too much. Just as an example, these aliens are powerful and resourceful enough to alter memories and reach out from deep space and snatch people, even whole houses back into space in an instant with almost nobody ever noticing. But, when they need to disguise a child’s room (cover up the drawings on the wall) the best they can do is loosely paste some crummy wallpaper over the drawings. (I wish I could get wallpaper down that easily.) A couple of coats of good interior latex would have worked much better.
All-in-all, I was very disappointed to say the least. In a few days, I won’t remember it at all. My memory is fading, fading… “Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do…….”
