worst film, ever. EVER. worth the watch just for the ending.
You've sold me.
I still wake up in the mornings sometimes, giggliing at Nic Cage's take at the end of Knowing.
I'll download this tonight, if I remember to remember this thread.
when you do, just everything that happens will dumbfound you.
my favourite bits were the scene on the ship (i think? or warehouse?) fuck me, i was pissing myself.
then the ending cos you'll just go WHAT THE FUCK? YOU ABSOLUTE FUCKERS!
and then pass the message on to those who haven't seen it.
simultaneously let an audible 'WTF' out.
You guys are selling this, too much. Like a retard, I forgot to download this last night. This is something I plan to rectify...
because Cage seems to take every acting job that he's offered however shitty and churns out literally billions of bad films every year. "Ok i've done Wickerman, NEXT! Oh sweet ima be a weatherman who gets dinner thrown at him from passing cars"
About GM organisms and stuff...
I think Next is the one where Nic Cage knows what's going to happen like 10 minutes into the future and uses his powers to like, save... things...
No, Knowing is the one where Nic Cage has a big piece of paper with lots of numbers on that predicts when disasters are going to happen - and he uses this knowledge to like, save... things...
is how much advanced warning he has?
One of the best ensemble casts ever - thus making Cage seem like he is fantastic and a good judge of script, but really it is the whole thing that is fantastic.
I have now - and what the fuck? I was expecting this to be a 'good-shit' film, but it was actually... just plain good. As disappointed as I was that I didn't get to see Cage act as much as he acted in Knowing, there was always Jessica Biel in a tank top. And Julianne Moore added some much needed gravitas. And of course, it helped that the 'twist' at the end prompted a give minute belly laugh - "I made a mistake!".
