Will Nic Cage ever be good again? Haven't seen Bad Lt. yet.
Dec. 14, 2009, 7:48 p.m. CST
Bad Lieutenant and now this scene...it's the insane Cage I love.
Dec. 14, 2009, 7:49 p.m. CST
Although he's still got those season of the witch and sorceror's apprentice movies coming out, so we'll see.

Dec. 14, 2009, 7:56 p.m. CST
...was rich, what's his track record going to be like now that he's bankrupt?<P>The mind recoils in horror...
Dec. 14, 2009, 7:58 p.m. CST
Excellent. Dialogue was perfect. Tone was sensational. Rapport between the two was spot on for the movie and really reflected the comics. Great work to the director and writers, you're onto a winner! And fantastic work Cage, you've nailed it!!!

If the rest of the movie is as twisted and humorous as this I'm there. And the little chick is as spot on as Cage...hopefully, she does not forget how to really act a scene as she gets older, like that hot, but wooden Portman has.

anyway i dont care how many good (or fucking awful) movies he's been in, i will always remember him for that moment. has he ever spoken about the wicker man?
Dec. 14, 2009, 8:18 p.m. CST
great scene. it was already spoiled on here. now not only are they spoiling movies they are spoiling the teasers we see here. i hate everything.
Dec. 14, 2009, 8:19 p.m. CST
Yet so right! <p> ...this movie is going to be trouble. Kick-ASS is going to have more controversy than that Prince song
Dec. 14, 2009, 8:22 p.m. CST
Dec. 14, 2009, 8:30 p.m. CST
I agree completely that the other trailer that is out there completely fails to capture what is great about this movie and only serves to spoil. THIS one does a far better job of conveying the hilarious, twisted, f*cked up tone of the thing.
Dec. 14, 2009, 8:43 p.m. CST

Dec. 14, 2009, 9:56 p.m. CST
...yet it will not. Hopefully, this will be one of those flicks that doesn't need to make hellah bank in order to be considered successful. That's the one and only hope I'm hanging my hat on.<P>Others have already pointed to how this appears to be similar to Mystery Men. Now, while I personally felt that film was awesome on so many levels, clearly, its income suffered. Instead, Kick Ass has the Nick Cage dynamic working against it instead of the Ben Stiller dynamic. Not so certain that is a better situation.<P>I realize Kick Ass is going for a different "feel" than Mystery Men. Doesn't mean audiences will interpret it the same way. Given the look of Big Daddy, I doubt it. And rightfully so. What the hell was Vaughn thinking?
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:03 p.m. CST
and I like Matthew Vaughn. The only thing I can see holding this shit back would be Mark Millar's writing. Otherwise it looks set to be a fun time at the movies. I'm extremely skeptical of the audience reactions toward this though, I don't think I'll enjoy it THAT much.
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:06 p.m. CST
anybody know where that's from? Nic Cage is the best at hamming it up. Yet surprisingly he can throw in some great performances (Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas).
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:06 p.m. CST
did the bullet find a wormhole and pass through the jacket leaving no damage? Just a theory.
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:12 p.m. CST
This will fail for much of the same reasons--audiences aren't really sure what it is or what it's supposed to be?
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:14 p.m. CST
... pose. Vrry nice. Looking forward to this one quite a bit, now.
Dec. 14, 2009, 10:16 p.m. CST
lol, geez. Word of mouth will make a film succeed or fail faster and better than the best marketing campaign. Word of mouth on this film is absolutely incredible, out of this world, bug fuck positive. I'm seriously doubting the fail.

..some dumbass will surely try this and die.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:10 p.m. CST
Of course the marketing is working because (I predict) the movie is just that good. And Nic Cage- some say this is your comeback, but to me you never left, homey.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:11 p.m. CST
Fucking stupid. Wow.

Dec. 14, 2009, 11:28 p.m. CST
People with powers gradually "coming out" and taking on superhero identities, like the "Copycat" chick from New Orleans in Season 2 but they killed her off and went on to do more "I Hate My Powers" whining, government conspiricies, time-traveling and people with mommy-issues, daddy-issues, sibling-issues, etc. When I see the footage of Hitgirl kicking ass, it could easily been Claire doing the same thing on Heroes.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:28 p.m. CST
give this movie a chance. However, their acting in that scene (especially Cage's) with the dialogue was poor and I wasn't buying. It sounded false and I felt uncomfortable watching it (like when you're embarrassed for someone). Especially the bit, "Oh child. Only for a second sugar." And the use of "Babydoll." I am looking forward to seeing the whole film though.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:32 p.m. CST
seen someone else in that part. Someone more likeable and easily watchable.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:33 p.m. CST
So Mark Millar gets sick of beating off to Luc Besson's Leon and then jacks this shit out onto a keyboard... This seriously reeks of some kind of fucked up comic book geek pedophilic fantasy. No fucking nine year old kid would act like that getting shot at.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:34 p.m. CST
Truly terrible, inexcusably so. What I've read on this site made me want to see the film, and the trailer made me not want to see it.<p>Lions gate better figure out what film they're marketing, and fast, or no one will ever know that this isn't just some tired also-ran knockoff.
Dec. 14, 2009, 11:35 p.m. CST
Not only do we see a nice puff of coat feathers fly away from her chest when she gets shot, but there's also a very visible bullet hole in the coat when she opens it up. Ain't no rocket science to that...

Yes Next was bad. Yes, Wickerman and Bangkok Dangerous were worse. And the digital abs, lame villains, and jellybean drinkin shit sandwich that was Ghost Rider was way worse than that. But the one that tops them all, the one that truly had no redeeming value whatsoever and just left me completely, mindnumbingly morose on every level was 8mm. That movie was a boiled bacon-wrapped giraffe turd slapped in between two pieces of moldy kaiser rolls with a nice day-old man goo sauce for dipping. In other words, it was completely unwatchable. At least Bangkok Dangerous gave me more than a few laughs. Granted they were mostly at his hair, but I was still laughing.

Changes like this are just putting this whole movie in doubt for me. I'll probably go see it but my expectations are getting lowered with every new tidbit of info I see or hear from it.

It's not like we're all waiting with bated breath here to see your final judgement whether to see the film or not. Come to think of it, reviewers in general have very little power in swaying people seeing films.
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:01 a.m. CST
one of the best of his generation, right up there with sean penn. he "plays the same part"? seen adaptations? face/off? matchstickmen? bad liutenant? <p> blame his choices, not his talent. he's a sucker for genre films, when he's more suited for better materials.
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:08 a.m. CST
and goddamn if that doesnt look like midnighter! where the fuck is the authority's film? it's simply the biggest coolest superhero concept ever created! what is taking you so long, hollywood? <p> millar's authority better be next! yes yes, i'm aware it's a warren ellis's universe, but i just much much prefer millar's take on it.
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:15 a.m. CST
it wont sell<P> we are talking nc-17 all the way...and if they cant make preacher, they cant make the authority<P> but they could make planetary<p> btw, wouldnt all her ribs be broken?
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:40 a.m. CST
LOL! Y'all know the folks at Standards and practices are gonna shit a brick after watichin' this scene. There's no way this flick will get released without a hard R...But on a side note, I can hardly wait for this mutha' fucka' to come out, though. It looks like a good date movie.

I realize this has now just become a meaningless phrase talkbackers toss out when they don't like a particular actor. But it seems especially meaningless in regards to someone like Cage, particularly when you compare him to other actors generally found in the summer blockbuster fare.
Dec. 15, 2009, 2:32 a.m. CST
some of his more recent stuff started to make me lose interest though i thought that movie where he can see the future wasn't too bad. the one with the hot chick from 7th heaven. what was it called...
Dec. 15, 2009, 2:53 a.m. CST
That is apparently the plan for "Preacher". If "Rome" can air on HBO, why not "The Authority"?

WTF are you going on about? Apparently you can't comprehend what you read. I was just stating my own personal thoughts on what i've seen from this movie so far just like every one else on here. I'm getting less excited to see this movie the more clips and pics I see from it. That Big Daddy costume just looks ridiculous to me. I'm "on the fence" on whether i'm seeing this thing or not. What part of that don't you understand? Who said anything about reviewers? I'm making the call on seeing this or not based on what info I see from it myself. Your little reply was all over the place and doesn't make a lot of sense in response to anything I even said.

Awwwww....mega millionaire marries a model and fucks other hotties on the side...awwwwwww...he gets caught, probably gonna pay big money when his wife divorces him, then he is gonna go back out and fuck another group of women...awwwww and he will still be mega fucking rich. <P>Fuck that shit, he should have either kept it in his pants and stayed faithful to his wife, or he should have never gotten married. Excuse me if I cannot have sympathy for the problems of a mega millionaire. People are saying to respect his privacy. When you are a public figure like he is, you have 2 choices, bask in the spotlight and enjoy the attention or do what you do and in your time off keep it private. Plenty of other celebrities keep their personal lives private, you have to want it. Tiger only wants privacy now because it suits his situation. He can't have it both ways. Sympathy? FUCK NO.
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:09 p.m. CST
...I understand not havin sympathy for mega millionaires, I just FUCKIN hate when women make money from men from divorce and/or babies...to me, marriage isnt real (in the love sense, maybe it does in the business sense), and he should kept it in is pants (or the "cage"...get it, his name Tiger? ok well n/m) BUT I dont think its right for someone to take somethin of yours if the only thing they do is have sex wit you...what next, prostitutes gonna have rights?
Dec. 15, 2009, 1:21 p.m. CST
I am kind of inclined to agree, as I am a divorced man and got nothing from the divorce except what was my direct personal property and have to pay huge amounts of child support when my ex makes over $100,000/year and I make oh about...well I am not gonna say but it is SIGNIFICANTLY less.<P>It sucks but that's the law unfortunately. But at the same time, Tiger fucked up, seriously. One woman could be forgivable. But 10? Come on, if vows meant nothing to Tiger then he should never have gotten married. I know where you're coming from dude, but with the amount of women he fucked behind his wife's back, I find it hard to feel sorry for him regarding anything.

Dec. 15, 2009, 2:23 p.m. CST
Like I said, I see your point, but maybe I look at things differently. I don't know how old you are but I am in my 40's with three kids. Back in the day, hell yea, I would ake all the strange I could get. Sady as you get older, you mature and things change. But trust me, I see your point;)<P>Oh and don't be sorry about the divorce dude, aside from losing a lot of "stuff" it was the best thing I have done aside from father my kids, in the past ten years.

It's amazing how worked up people are getting over another superhero movie. Did they get this worked up when they saw a somewhat similiar scene in the Academy Award Best Picture winning "Crash"? Mind you, the way Paul Haggis played up that one scene was well executed...
Dec. 16, 2009, 7:36 p.m. CST
I thought there was no bullet hole too but if you blow it up to full screen you can (briefly) see a bullet hole when she opens up her jacket... but once she is back up negotiating I cannot see it. Although the pink could probably disguise it, especially with such low quality<p>The jacket provides next to no resistance so the bullet could probably go through without expanding and causing a more pronounced hole... plus the pink would probably hide it relatively well
