Before I tackle 'Don't Look Up' (see my tweets on Twitter... such a great movie), I'd like to rant a little about Prisoner of the Ghostland, Nicolas Cage's 2021 effort.
Sure, everyone can remember Conair (1997), that was great in a 'gung ho' kinda way, and even Raising Arizona (1987). Can you remember The Weatherman (2005)? I thought that was thought-provoking. I went through a spate of watching Cage movies, they had a certain 'charm'. But then, one after another, typecast or otherwise, they got really bad. The National Treasure films were fun, if nothing else. But this latest? Prisoner of the Ghostland? It rivals Bruce Willis' latest efforts. Damn, it's not right. Go and see... no, on second thoughts, don't. Take my word for it. I've seen movies worth watching with Cage in them. This isn't one of them, no matter how many people try to say how 'bizarre' it is - it's not, it's just bad.
Update: For anyone interested, there's some kind of preacher in Ghostland, and I think he's reading passages from Wuthering Heights. Also, to put a neon sign saying 'Crazy' on the front of a truck that doesn't actually go anywhere to try and show how 'crazy' everything is, well... just isn't crazy.
Back to the books.... there's STILL some movement on KENP! THANK YOU!
In the meantime, if you'd like to see what all the fuss is about, Humanity H2O is here...
And the Bohatch Chronicles are here, of course...
