Movie Review: Dreamscape

Dreamscape (1984, PG-13) directed by Joseph Ruben, starring: Dennis Quaid, Kate Capshaw, Max von Sydow, & Christopher Plummer.


Dreamscape is a movie that dabbles with the idea of psychics being able to project into an individuals dream with the help of machines managed by researchers. The researchers decide to use this government funded project to assist those who have nightmares. The idea behind the machines is that psychics would be able to guide the nightmare into a pleasant realm. This concept works, but of course, what would a movie be without the antagonist? A corrupt government official decides to team up with a rogue psychic to infiltrate the Presidents nightmares and kill him. With the help of the good psychic, the President is saved from demise.


This was a fun and enjoyable 80s flick.


Though this movie may seem far-fetch, it kind of reminded me of the 1950s MKultra Projects. In the movie the project was funded for pure advancement of science, but corrupt government officials wanted to use the project as a form of assassination, something that could be used on political leaders.


Though this movie was pure sci-fi, makes you wonder... is it really fiction?

A little about me. 5'8, Caribbean descent, curvy, pretty, natural hair, went to college/grad school, play sports, love grapes; Your average girl, right? Hmm except for a few things I left out: I can create natal charts, I am obsessed with moon/stars/etc, I interpret dreams, I have predictive dreams, I sometimes leave my body, and did I mention I see dead people (JUST KIDDING, had you going for a second) I can’t see dead people (but I can do everything else), well maybe I choose not to see dead people (that's another story).


I am on an adventure, a journey I guess you can say. I am on a journey through the unknown. I have been asked before if I was psychic. I just laughed and said “I don't know what I am, but I can tell you, one thing I am not is psychic"


I guess this is my journey and yours as well into the paranormal, the metaphysical world, and such. Maybe through this journey I can figure out what am I doing, what am I, and how am I doing it?
