This is what I get for not reading reviews or paying close enough attention to what I rent. I thought Matt Damon’s “The Adjustment Bureau” (2011) was going to be like his other spy movies, but with a sci-fi twist. Instead, it’s the demon spawn of Rod Serling and Nicholas Sparks. Actually, it’s the opposite spawn of demon spawn (angel spawn?). It’s a sci-fi love story that ends up being an allegory on the religious concept of free will. With Emily Blunt (redhead alert!). Pleasant surprises all around. Maybe it’s the non-sucky, Cruiseless spawn of “Vanilla Sky” and “Minority Report.”
