RE: This Just In, Nicolas Cage Doesn't Completely Suck...Yet


I am also stoked on seeing this movie. Just to let you know. And I did. So yeah.

Saw The Wrestler today. It is really damn good.

You can check out my elaboration here.

Also, did you hear that Aronofsky is directing the new Robocop movie. I'd buy that for a dollar!

I'm working in this movie right now. It looks pretty awesome! It has the potential to be a 13 years olds wet dream- on the one hand there is the wrestling, but on the other, it would appear that half of it is set in a strip club.

This thread has been jacked. I'll roll with it.

Photos of Rourke in wrestler mode here.

Mickey Rourke, going against the grain and playing a washed up wrestler!

When I read that article, I suddenly realized that it would have been weirder if he didn't play that role.

I really hope this movie gets made.

Rourke is an eternal stallion.

(insert recent DUI on a moped joke here)

This movie just got a whole lot better. I could watch Mickey Rourke watching paint dry and still be entertained.

Did you see later in the article the mention of a director named John Madden? What the hey? That is the third famous John Madden that I know of. So now there is:

John Madden- football announcer
John Madden- hockey player
John Madden- film director

If you were the second and third guy on this list, wouldn't you go by a different first name?

Turns out it won't be Cage after all...

I am 99.9 percent sure that this is based on a fictional account as I have never heard of either wrestler mentioned. I am a bit apprehensive because, no matter how much I love wrestling and movies, I have yet to really love a wrestling movie. Here is why: the sport is fake. I know it is. You know it is. Everyone knows it is. But in the movies they always play it as real. This sounds like they are playing it as real which is just silly at this point. A movie about a pro wrestler, where we know wrestling is fake, needing to step back in the ring, against doctor's orders, for money, sounds great. It also sounds like the plot to Rocky II.

I've never heard of a wrestler by that name. I'm assuming it's fictional. The thought of Cage in ring attire is making me laugh already.

But we can keep our fingers crossed for some sweet cameos.

Totally! I can't wait for National Treasure: Book of Secrets.




Joking aside, I did enjoy National Treasure. I love's me some puzzle solving action movies. Course I didn't bother to see it in the theatre, and I doubt I'll do so with this one either.

This may sound like a dumb question, but here goes, this isn't based on a true story is it? My knowledge of wrestlers isn't anywhere near the encyclopedic nature of the Bush brothers so I'm just asking since the article seemed a bit vague.

If Nic Cage ever decides to off himself he will assuredly buy the King's toilet and eat a poisoned peanut butter and banana sandwich while on it.



While rubbing one out.

I bet Nic Cage has A.) Thrown a tantrum upon not getting the role of Elvis in "True Romance" B.) Smelled Elvis' underpants C.) One-wayed to "G.I. Blues" and/or "Harum Scarum." His rug should get 2nd billing at this point. Maybe his piece and Travolta's can star in Face/Off 2.

Well, considering how often my suggestions for anything weekly waste related make the final cut, I won't hold my breath. :)

I had this realization last night that anyone else who would act so much like Elvis Presley and even marry his daughter would be universally mocked. It's like a nerdy kid that imitates his idol and catches crap from other people for doing so. Yet, no one seems to mock Cage for his constant Elvis-like behavior!

I nominate him for Gome of the Week.

His hairpiece seems worth a few laughs by itself.

My roommate and his girlfriend came home intending to watch it (seemingly prepared for a comedic feast) and so I and some candy joined them.

Biff, I unsecretly liked that movie and was stoked to finally see it.

Angie, he ALWAYS sounds like he's trying to do Elvis. Lest we forget, he did marry Lisa Marie.

I watched Ghost Rider tonight...

all this talk of nic cage and not one mention of a BRILLIANT film called Peggy Sue Got Married. his voice sounds like a really bad impression of elvis but with an incredible headcold. it is some of his finest work.

I secretly didn't hate that movie. I guess that is a secret no more. There is totally a sequel coming out, which should be good times.

Another example of his less skilled acting but still an enjoyable family romp, was National Treasure. I like me some problem solving/cloak and dagger/riddle-type stuff and that one certainly fit the bill. That's probably one of those movies I could watch over and over again for a while.

i too sat through the nic cage tri-o-logy, i however came away with a different feeling about the gone in 60 seconds... i found it to be a brilliant representation of our culture's current obsession with all things trashy, it really spoke to me and made me analize my pompous, snobbish attitude in regard to an element of society that is vastly underappreciated... ok, it was a pile of ****.

Count it Wock.





That being said, I have a love/hate relationship with Mr. Cage. It would be so easy for me to simply say all the time that I hate him and he sucks. Yet, as 'Roba pointed out, he was amazing in Raising Arizona. What's a logical man who likes his "cut and dried" to do?

I actually wanted to see WTC, but then just kind of assumed it sucked. Maybe I'll check it out.

Saving Ghost Rider for next weekend?

So I rented some Nic Cage films this weekend for a good laugh and was shocked to find that he did not completely suck in two of them. Now, let me say, I used to love ol' Nic like 13 years ago, back when he was awesome. He kicked ass in "Wild At Heart" and "Raising Arizona," but seems to have become a complete mockery of himself after "Con Air" and "The Rock." So I rented 3 films this weekend of his and they break down like this:

-"Gone In 60 Seconds"- Wow. This movie is hilarious. And I mean hilarious. If you have never seen this it is somehow even funnier than "Fast And The Furious." Angelina Jolie has fake white dreads. Cage gets fat from all of the scenery he eats. It is priceless.

-"The Weather Man"- This was actually kind of good. Okay, I totally liked it. It was kind of dirty, depressing and funny where it was supposed to be. And the weird thing? Nic doesn't suck in it. He was actually kind of good. It was strange, I know.

-"World Trade Center"- I was wrong about this movie. It is actually pretty sweet and isn't really flag-wave-y in any way. Nic Cage is actually good in this. I was just as suprised as you. Believe me. I really have nothing else to say about this movie other than the fact that it doesn't suck.

Go ahead and make fun of me now. You heartless bastards.
