Thread Name: Wicker Man remake
Subject: RE: Wicker Man remake
Cage makes two types of movies... big Hollywood blockbuster action films, and smaller, offbeat stuff. I respect him for that. I recently bought a DVD of Matchstick Men, which had excellent reviews. And well deserved. I thought Cage was fine in it as a con man who ultimately turns out to be a sucker for the world's greatest con, and ends up admiring the people who pulled it on him.
I thought that he was fine in Moonstruck, too. And dopey in the little bit of National Treasure that I watched out of momentary boredom on the tee vee a couple of nights ago.
I haven't seen the original Wicker Man, but am not enticed into watching the remake. I'd probably like the original better, even having never seen it.
