FOLLOWING UP on HIS HILARIOUSLY AWFUL, RAZZIE-NOMINATED PERFORMANCE in WICKER MAN LAST YEAR, and HIS FLAMINGLY RAZZIE-ELIGIBLE TURN AS GHOST RIDER THIS YEAR, NICOLAS CAGE LOOKS LIKE a PRIME WORST ACTOR CONTENDER AGAIN for 2007, EVEN WITHOUT THIS ESP-THEMED, CRITICALLY REEMED "THRILLER." 

DO YOU SEE a RAZZIE in HIS FUTURE, TOO?? FEEL FREE to POST YER COMMENTS BELOW...

Cage: "How much longer 'till I finally get my long overdue Worst Actor RAZZIE??"

What's NEXT for Cage? Well, so much! He has two more films due out this year, there's Bangkok Dangerous, a remake of the 2000 foreign film with the same title, and National Treasure: Book of Secrets, due out at around Christmastime. It follows the 2004 film, National Treasure. I did enjoy National Treasure, it had some outstanding action and thriller scenes, but I also know that not all critics liked the film at all. On RT, NT has a 42% approval from critics, so it wasn't anywhere near being a RAZZIE contender. There's a total of 156 reviews, 65 fresh, and 91 rotten. Here's a LINK to look at the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes for National Treasure...http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/national_treasure/

There are just so many turkeys  that can be added to this forum (but at least this one was added). I think Cage is purposefully trying to ruin his career. I can't think of any other explanation why he keeps doing one forgetable action movie after another...

I'm also surprised that the HeadRAZZ didn't pick MR. BROOKS as Worst New Movie of the Weak. I figured he would be all over a movie with both Kevin Costner and Demi Moore (two actors the razzies love to hate). Plus, it has Dane Cook as a wannabe serial killer! 

Response from Head RAZZberry:  While many of the reviews on MR. BROOKS have mentioned the RAZZIES (LINK) its overall approval rating on RT now stands above 50% (LINK) -- Low enough to get it rated "Rotten," but hardly low enough to be in RAZZIE territory. And some of those reviews reminding readers of Costner's RAZZIE Pedigree are also calling BROOKS the finest performance of his career (faint praise, albeit, but praise none-the-less).

For those concerned that this week had no Worst of the Weak pick, next week brings HOSTEL: PART II and SURF'S UP -- Neither of which are apparently being screened for critics, and both of which seem to have RAZZIE potential...

I don't think Nic Cage should get Razzies for this or Ghost Rider. I thought he did an excellent job with these movies. But he's forced to co-star with actresses who cannot act. This goes for Jessica Biel, who is a hot commodity on the red carpet and in tabloids, but was awful in Next. There are plenty of others like her, including Jessica Simpson (who can have a charming presence, if only her dad wouldn't choose her upcoming films) and Keira Knightley (I'm sorry, but words can't express how bad her performance was in the latest Pirates of the Carribean). So don't put all the blame on Cage. After I saw clips of his acting in The Wicker Man, I think he's back to speed. Hopefully he'll pick better projects.

I don't know if Surf's Up will be hidden from critics. Recent promos had early word on the film, which is nothing but praise. But let's hope it can hold onto that promise. A mockumentary in a children's film has chances of working.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Rotten Tomatoes has given both Surf's Up and Ocean 13 pretty good ratings as of today both Surf's up and Ocean 13 are at 69 % 67 %

It felt like a rough cut, unfinished and like it was missing maybe 20-30 minutes. The ending was horrid. Cage probably will get a Razzie nomination. He wasn't really bad in this nor Ghost Rider, but he might deserve it, just because he keeps choosing terrible scripts, one after another.

Both Jessica Biel and (surprisingly) Julianne Moore were terrible. Both worthy Razzie-contenders!

Nic Cage should be considered for WORST ON-SCREEN COUPLE for anyone he shares the screen in this movie and "Ghost Rider".

Well, this movie was completely forgotten alright. I'm sure you all know what I mean by that.

A guy who has the ability to see two minutes into the future uses his ability to gamble and pick up women before being asked by the government to help locate a nuclear warhead that could wipe out billions of people.

That sounds like a pitch for a comedy to me, and I really think this would have been better done as a comedy.

Hell, they could probably make this *into* a comedy in a few years and it would be a smashing success.

You could probably also have Nic Cage and Jessica Biel star in it again. :)

I almost didn't like this. The ending was atrocious. However, it wasn't as bad as the ending to "Femme Fatale", which was on a few nights ago. I am surprised that escaped Razzie-free...

I saw this movie and I liked it a lot. It's very sophisticated and thought provoking, if you ask me. I liked the ending (don't know what's wrong with you people!). Probably because it was out of your comfort zone, you guys didn't like it. So spoilers ahead for the ending:

I liked it because they tried a different way to end it "happily". It's very obvious that he stopped the bomb. The point of the ending was to not show you what happens, yet you already know what would happen, and you wouldn't want to see him mess up several more times to go back and do something different the next time. Eventually, he would have found a way to stop the bomb, and that's that. But they ended it the way they did because he wouldn't get it right the first few times...

END SPOILERS

All in all, very fun and entertaining movie.

We understood the meanin'of the endin',but after comin'to this forums,or discussin'with people,but no one uderstood it inmediately,and people left the theatre angry.He could've give a better final narration or somethin'.
 
Even if the endin'was good,it's no excuse for the plot holes,like what's the deal with LIZ?Does she has powers too?The last time I saw plot holes like this was with JUMPER,but that's better'cuz they wanted to make a sequel.This one wasn't planned to have one,and since it flopped,it's not gon'na have one.

Yeah, as mentioned above, the HUGE, GAPPING plot hole of Cage only being able to see two minutes into the future, but then was some how able to see DAYS into the future is what ruined this movie. Not the ending being a cliffhanger, but that they set up a rule and then broke it without explaination.

Well, they did explain it, although it ended up being cliched. I'm a huge, huge supporter of this film but Cage stated that when he looks into the future of his girlfriend, it can go on for days. This is why the ending is not a cliffhanger. We, the audience, is left to assume that he'll EVENTUALLY find out a way to stop the bomb from exploding but just not yet. It may seem like a cliffhanger, but, instead, it's a unique way of saying he saved the day. That's why I liked the ending.
