So, did a 16th Century scholar correctly prophesize the end of the world, building on the Book of Revelations in the Bible? This documentary seems to think so. As an introduction to Nostradamus, this DVD is excellent. I particularly appreciated the direct quotation of Nostradamus's writing instead of merely paraphrasing. The obvious conclusion is that his quatrains could apply to all sorts of events--you're welcome to pick and choose. Added to the problem is the fact Nostradamus "encoded" his writing to stay on the good side of the Church, so specifics are a little scarce. The fact that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 is a little startling, and other cultures apparently date "end times" at about now, too. The strength of the DVD is the two experts, David Shayler and Safriel Salem, who describe the evidence for these end times. They're very convincing. Less compelling is the narrator, who is onscreen much of the time obviously reading his material. While it's different, a traditional voice-over narration might have worked better. Though I don't believe any of this, I respect others' beliefs. I do take exception, however, at people who think they need to take action to "help" the end times along, like God needs a leg-up or something. I also think that a lot of this discussion comes from the fact that we, the people, ARE destroying the planet at an alarming rate, which lends credence to Nostradamus and his followers. I'd like to prove the man wrong, wouldn't you?

Had my granddaughter over for a few days. She was fascinated hearing about Nostradamus so I rented this for us to watch. We never got through a half hour of it. The worst version of this type I've ever seen. It was a waste of money to rent it.

For those of you who don't know, Nostradamus predicted future events hundreds of years ago. This dvd details his predictions and background story. I will definitely be rewatching this movie as there was a lot of fresh material I hadn't heard before
