05.23.07Alamo Lake Creek We ended the triple feature with the Nic Cage gem Next. This one's about a guy who can tell 2 minutes into his own future so the government wants him to help them figure out where a nuclear bomb is planted. OK, this movie is awesome. 30 years from now, it'll be a classic Weird Wednesday movie beloved by small but loyal audiences. I actually think Nic Cage is turning into the William Shatner of today. he's always so over the top with these weird ideas. Like I have no clue why he's a magician in this movie. The tricks he does aren't even really dependant on his super power... but I think he (as a person, when he's not working) just really likes magic so when he signed on he was like "you know, I think I should be a magician in this movie" and that was that. And along with a few things that are like "yeah, cool, you could do that if you knew what was gonna happen!" he gets into these scenarios that are completely absurd and stretching the limits of his supposed power. It's all very lovely... and amazing. I laughed through like the entire thing then talked about it and laughed even more on the way home (and I wasn't even alone talking to myself!). It's a new classic to be sure... this along with Shooter is really restoring some hope for modern hollywood movies. freakin Nic Cage, man... highlarious.
