How did Nick Cage and Hayden Christensen end up in two different movies, both titled OUTCAST.? One came out in 2010 and another supposedly won't be released until Feb 2015 (I saw it last night.)
The film I saw last night had Nick Cage playing the battle scarred and cynical Crusader that he did so well in SEASON OF THE WITCH. Fans of Nick be warned: his screen time totals maybe 20 minutes. Hayden Christenson, the young Crusader that cage mentored, is the anti-heroic main character.
Did I like the film? It was OK. Would I rave about it to friends and family as I did when I saw "Guardians of the Galaxy"? Not on your life. "Season of the Witch" and "Drive Angry!" are much more compelling films.
Ah! The answer! You guys screwed up! Nick Cage and Hayden Christenson are NOT in the 2010 OUTCAST. This is from your own site....
Love and family loyalties square off against dark forces in this thriller from British director Colm McCarthy. Mary (Kate Dickie) and her son Fergal (Niall Bruton) arrive in a small town in Scotland looking for a place to stay. Mary and Fergal tend not to live in one place for long, and not without reason -- Mary is part of a clan who practice a special brand of magic, and she's constantly on the run from rivals who believe Fergal has unusual talents they'd like to exploit. As Mary and Fergal ... More
Rating:R (for strong bloody violence and gore, sexuality, graphic nudity and language) Genre:Horror , Mystery & Suspense , Science Fiction & Fantasy > Sounds to me like the 2010 OUTCAST is a lot more exciting!!!!!
I saw the 2014 GODZILLA film last night. I am 61 years old and have been a long time fan of the Godzilla films, even when some of them were silly and stupid (in a way similar to how some of the James Bond films became silly and stupid after Sean Connery quit the series.) I had high hopes for this Godzilla remake, but there was too much unnecessary padding to the basic story. References to a secret nuclear attack on a "Godzilla-like" creature in the 1950s, the stupid iconic scientist who keeps on saying that Godzilla is "Nature's " way of keeping balance on the earth. Not one but 2 love stories, the second one with the young American military hero trying to get back to his wife and kids has become very boring to me... Oh, and the film was basically very dark and gloomy, as though the directors were trying to hide shabby special effects under the cover of darkness. I know that no one reading this knows me at all, but trust me.... wait until you can stream this from NETFLIX, or download a copy. Don't reward these people for turning out an inferior product!
Maybe it takes a former alcoholic, or ex-drug addict, to truly appreciate the genius of this film. Captain Invincible was born with superhuman abilities, courtesy of an alien race, and for the first 3 decades of his life was the usual, self-confident superhero, who knows that he's fighting the good fight. Then, shortly after World War 2, a criminal genius who takes the long view began a campaign to turn the Public against the Captain. Feeling isolated and alienated Captain Invincible becomes an alcoholic, and spends the next 2 decades as a drunken bum. It is only when a global crisis forces the then President of the United States to seek him out that the story really gets cracking.
Since the late 1980s we have seen comic book superheroes lose their sense of identity and moral compass, but I think that the return of Captain Invincible was the first mass market attempt to tell the story of a super-man in a mortal world in a realistic manner.
Parts of it are corny, and a bit is inconsistent with other parts, but overall, it is my personal opinion that the film is a masterpiece.
