    A friend has asked me to try to figure out which movie she is half-remembering. Apparently it's from the 80s or 90s and the following is the description she gave me:



    A big black jagged obelisk rises up out of the ground in a desert area (healing a few nearby sick people on the way). Scientists try to crack its purpose and manage to effect an entry through knowledge of the sun and its planets. Apparently, the purpose of the obelisk is to surface every few million years or so, wait for signs of intelligent life, and if none is forthcoming to obliterate everything in order to have a fresh start at creation. Probably an 80's or 90's film, no idea who was in it.





    Thanks in advance.
