Phenomenon

An ordinary man sees a bright light descend from the sky, and discovers he now has super-intelligence and telekinesis. — via IMDB

I remember watching this movie way back in college (I think). This is one of the few movies I actually watched at a movie theater during those days. I watched it again recently and just then realized this should instantly qualify as one of my favorite movies. I just loved how George Malley (John Travolta) transformed into a person who can absorb a vast amount of knowledge from reading 3 to 4 books a day. Add that to his super-abilities to process and calculate information.

But of course, my favorite line was, when they found out that George was sick — a tumor in his brain — and is dying, he and Lace Pennamin (Kyra Sedgwick) had this dialogue:

George Malley: Hey, would you, uh, love me the rest of my life?
Lace Pennamin: No. I’m gonna love you for the rest of mine.
