Second greatest Nicolas cage movie where he flips the holy hell out,
First one being Deadfall.
Brad I have to thank you for introducing me to Kiss of Death and Deadfall those were awesome flicks. Nicolas Cage movies are so hilariously enjoyable and I love showing films like this to my friends.
There's theories on this film by a few of my friends on whether this is a supernatural film with Jenifer Beals character being an actual vampire and in some mythos if Peter (nic cage) is just becoming a servant of the vampire or a Ghoul, or if Nic cage is just going bat shit insane by all the issues like relationships and finding the file are just putting too much pressure on him and he just snaps.
But I read a fan theory on IMDB that claims that Nic cage got bit by the bat when it first shows up and he contracted Rabies, I thought it sounded like a good theory which worked in context to this movie
Also have to mention that the scene where he eats the cockroach still is probably my favorite moment in any nic cage film, no cgi no fake effects Nic cage has guts to do that.
Thanks for posting this ..... my Lloyd quotient was getting dangerously low! (I need to maintain a high level of adorable-ness at all times - for health reasons) <3
Jeez, seeing you hit Allison face again is both hilarious and cringey, I can't help it, it's like 'HAHA! Oooooo, that sucked you hear the THUNK'
Never seen this one.
is phelan cucked?
Nah, I'm pretty sure its an open marriage...but only if the other person is Brad.
Cool Ghostbusters shirt, too bad you're a woman & thus can't be a Ghostbuster. . . apparently.
No, Lupa can be a Ghostbuster, she is actually funny.
How dare you, sir! Kristen Wiig & Melissa McCarthy are comic goddesses. . .
HA! JOKE! I hate them. The blonde gal's cute & actually looks like Egon's daughter/niece or something. I've never heard of Leslie Jones but her "cliché,sassy black lady" shtick in the trailer didn't amuse me.
If I had to, if I was FORCED to cast new Ghostbusters I'd get
Rain Wilson- very funny & can also do drama. He's my 'Ray'
Jim Parsons-like 'Big Bang Theory'(first four seasons,anyway)or not, the way he rattles off all his science jib jab is Egon like
Kevin Hart- his movies don't seem funny but he IS a great comedian, with the right story & director he'd be great as 'the Winston'(although I'd also let him be a Dr. of some kind. Progression Mr. Feige, progression)
Whitney Cummings- I have a woman! & she's actually funny. . . sometimes.
An argument against this whole 'if you don't like this movie you're sexist' tumblrina bullshit...
Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts in the Movies, and Laura Summer/Kath Soucie in the Real Ghostbusters Cartoon) Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver), and Kylie Griffen (Tara Strong, Extreme Ghostbusters).
They seem to forget that women have played a central roll in all of the Ghostbusters movies and spin offs. The fact remains that this new movie is a complete abolishment of the original cast... No Bill Murray (At least not as Peter Venkman) no Dan Akroyd, no Harold Ramis (rip), NO ANNIE POTTS. This is in name only addition to the franchise, and we all know how well 'in name only' adds to a fan's disposition of the work.
The problem is there's lots of reasons to have bad vibes about the new Ghostbusters, so it's too hard to tell the "hate it because women in boy things is bad" crowd from the "hate it because it looks bad/mediocre" crowd and the "hate it because Ghostbusters is holy and should never be done period" crowd.
Then you always have a huge number of people who are fighting strawmen and logical fallacies, which is most of the people on forums about this film.
The problem with a video like AVGN's is that all the woman-haters think he made it because he agrees with them. And some of the other side thinks so too. When in fact all he was doing was responding to the comments asking him if he will review the movie.
I can't stand McCarthy and am not a fan of Wiig. Leslie Jones is OK and Kate McKinnon is funny. But I think this movie will be mediocre. It will probably be a boring review when Brad goes to see it. A lot of noise about nothing worth talking about.
The thing is, I think a better script and maybe a cast change would have made this work. I personally think making this a direct sequel in a time when Ghostbusters has been franchised and big cities pay multi-million dollars to have them. Set it in Detroit, where a group wants to start one up but the city can't afford them. So while all the other cities have the big expensive professional teams and equipment this rag-tag group tries doing it the way the original team did: on the cheap and largely improvised. Keep a female cast, set a scene at a national convention where everyone is making fun of them, not because they are women but because they are the poor team that doesn't have all the cool new equipment like the "real professionals".
Just saying there are great actresses, female comedians (I personally think Amy Schumer could pull it off), and direct sequel ideas with minimal original cast commitments to pull this off better than it looks to be heading.
It appears I might have to eat my words. It looks like all the actors from the previous Ghostbusters are going to be in the movie, including Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts (Though IMDB doesn't list the characters they are playing... which probably means they are playing bit roles and cameo appearances, which feels a little cheap if you ask me).
I've actually haven't seen many Nic Cage films, for some odd reason or another. I need to change that quickly.
<puts on Sorcerer's Apprentice>
I really thought someone would bring up the George Romero film "Martin" which is similar in that by the end you're left wondering how much was in the characters head, and they are both playing with the themes of vampirism.
Anyway I think I'll give this film another look.
