The Color Out of Nick Cage

I saw the trailer for this a little while ago, and while I generally steer well away of Cage's stuff nowadays, this actually looks interesting.

After what he did to "The Wicker Man", I'd have to agree. But l too saw the trailer today, and it looks ok.

Awesome movie, I really liked it!

It was closer to the original Lovecraft story than I expected. And it has Alpacas, which obviously are a great addition to any movie!

If you´re expecting a super serious movie, you´ll be disappointed. But if you´re in for a great modern B-movie-style Lovecraft movie, go see this!

Am I the first one to post this?

Okayyyy,

 

well, the inclusion of one of Vancouver’s best comic gifts to the universe (Tommy Chong) as a crazed shaman (I think) has me intrigued.

But that raises the question, was it really an alien entity or the effects of the nation's new favorite "medical" substance?  Because you know those alpacas are totally toking it up behind the barn regardless of what the humans are doing over by the well.

Weed does a lot of things but it definitely doesn't make you do that.

Not even in Florida. (yes I own this role-playing game and yes it's FLORIDA MAN THE RPG)

Cage is hit and miss. While he's brilliant at chewing scenery, and has his moments of good (ConAir and Face/Off), he can go waaaay off the rails.

"The BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!"

However, I suggest it's up to the abilities of the director and/or the producers to drop him some Valium now and again. Otherwise, the scene with Hero the horse, tied up at the well mayn't go down too good.

Sorry but I think that valium administration might be either the handler or the PAs job, although in the correct union unsure of film so... 

edited to add, on second thought in Cage’s case that might require a stunt doctor.

<grin>

I believe that was an album called big bamboo, and if so, it came with the largest rolling paper I have ever seen, Do you  know if your dad still has this?

Incredibly collectible nowadays.

Even with the scorching and dodgy smell from being used as a skin-up station. :)

Have you ever seen Nick Case “act"? If you answer yes, odds are very good that you have then see Nick Cage’s “acting” in this unfortunate movie. I have not seem this movie, but unfortunately, I have seen Francis Ford Coppola’s nephew “acting”.

I have seen his so called acting, and as an actor I must agree he's a trifle, well you know:)

But I was just hoping against hope that a mainstream Lovecraft movie did the genre justice.

I would not say his “acting” could sink a film. just not help it.

I saw this one several weeks back and came away pleasantly surprised! Nicolas Cage is really in a support role in this one, with the family's kids taking center stage. Not a perfect film, but they did a great job of focusing on The Weird rather than giving it a monster-of-the-week vibe.
