Weird Yet Fascinating

Before I learned about Chuck (Zachary Levi) and aside from Brad Pitt, Nicholas Cage is my most-loved in Hollywood. I know some people hate him because of his weird and crazy acts like having odd collections of stuffed lizards, snakes and octopus, having his own pyramid tomb where he plans to be buried, naming his son after his Kryptonian hero Luke Cage (that’s where he got his screen name too), etc. Weird ehh? Yes, sometimes he’s playing offbeat and sometimes he’s bizarrely over-the-top characters, but who cares? He is a very good actor and can portray different characters very well (the pictures below will speak for it). Because of that, he earned his reputation. I loved him more when he played the role on Stanley Godspeed in “The Rock” and I love his character as Cameron Poe, a US Ranger and newly released ex convict that’s trapped in a prisoner transport plane, in Con Air.

Nicolas Cage may be genuinely weird and strange but he is fascinating. There’s no one else like him in Hollywood. Do you know that his real name is Nicholas Kim Coppola? He was born on January 7, 1964 in Long Beach, California, USA. No, I am not a stalker. Just an avid fan.

Something New – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

My Rating: 6/10

I am not into fantasy or science fiction movies but when I watched the Sorcerer’s Apprentice last night, I must admit that I liked it. I don’t know if it is because of the romance in this film or because of Nicholas Cage, my favorite actor. Though this movie is not action packed like The Rock and Con Air, Nicholas Cage justified his Character as Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake. Before Merlin died, he asked Balthazar Blake to look for the child who is destined to kill Morgana le Fay (Alice Krige), Merlin’s greatest enemy.

Balthazar Blake recruits a seemingly everyday guy in his mission to defend New York City from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina), until he found Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who is a Physics genius. Balthazar and Dave work together to save the city and be with their love.
