Individual Entry


Step away from the bike!

Many thanks must go to Graham for drawing attention to this one: a montage of the most unintentionally funny moments from the cringe-inducingly poor-looking remake of The Wicker Man. Coming soon to HD DVD and Blu-ray: Nicolas Cage steals a bicycle, punches and delivers karate kicks to various women, steals small childrens’ masks, disguises himself as a grizzly bear, and has a swarm of bees poured over his head, all the while screaming “Not the bees! Not the bees! Oh no, my eyes! My eeeeeeeeyeeeeeees!”

Yes, I think I’ve seen all I need to see of this film. It’s fairly clear they dumped the wrong one under the M3.

Update, January 25, 2007 04:28 PM: There’s another, even longer and even funnier, montage here.

As it seems I have misunderstood this movie: I always thought the 2006 Wicker Man was an unnecessary remake of a great classic, but apparently it is a parody! ;-)

From this compilation, Cage plays a mentally unstable police officer who likes hitting women (and only women); what's more, he doesn't do it terribly well. No wonder this was such a hit at the Razzies.

My favourite part was when he pulls a gun on a harmless woman who doesn't get off a bike. I almost wish the ending were different; I'd love to see what his written report would be like.

I love how they removed the character’s staunchly Christian moral values and replaced them with… a bee phobia. Absolute genius.
