It's got a good beat and you can dance to it.
As much shit as everyone gives Nic Cage, he's still one of my favorite actors because of how he acts. Seeing one of his films is like buying acting in bulk because he always gives more than the role calls for so I know I'm getting a good deal. Why would I want to watch a movie where Brad Pitt ages backwards when I can see Nic Cage lose his fucking shit for 90 minutes or more? Everything involving Nic is 5 star worthy.
I think Ghost Rider and Deadfall make up for a lot of wrong he's done. I genuinely enjoyed National Treasure for the fun factor but Nic really toned it down and he actually did a good job as Big Daddy in Kick Ass which was disappointing but he literally has 5 moments of insanity for mild mannered thing he's done.
I don't think any of the movies are good, but Cage makes them all interesting single-handedly. I do want to make a special note about how Kick-Ass is one of the worst teenage angst fantasy things I've ever seen, though.
They're all awful if you have high standards in movies. Kick Ass was a good adaptation of a mindless comic that had some great action scenes and was fun as fuck to watch. National Treasure was also fun but in a really stupid way like The Goonies for Teabaggers and conspiracy theorists. Ghost Rider was awesome because it was a horrible adaptation of one of Marvel's least popular characters that also could not be attempted without making it look stupid. So they did it with Cage and it kicked ass in how bad it was. Deadfall is tedious but every moment with Cage on screen is pure gold. The man is a genious and I sat through Miracle Dogs Too fucking twice so I think it's safe to say those were all Coen brothers masterpieces by comparison
From which movie is the whole "boner" thing?
Ah yes yes. Now i remember, that movie is a mess, the opening long shot is indeed that only good thing. That and Carla Gugino.
Am I alone in thinking this needed some Bad Lieutenant in there?
It has some, but not enough. I love the face he makes when he shows the handcuffs to the football player buying dope. That and some iguanas would help this even more.
Where is the "I'M A PRICKLY PEAR" line from?
