Vampire's Kiss, Bringing Out the Dead, and Adaptation. round out the Essential 8 for me.

Porting over a better blurb to explain what I thought of Con Air:

Quote:
As far as Cage the Action Hero goes, this doesn't hit the Bay-fueled heights of his partnership with Connery in The Rock or the kabuki masterpiece of Face/Off.

Cameron Poe -- replete with long prison locks and a deep-fried Southern accent -- may be one of Cage's most distinctive characters, particularly in that action vernacular; the shame is that besides him awesomely dodging one explosion or twin-riding police cycles with John Cusack with a Jack Slater-esque endless guitar solo blaring in the background, he rarely lives up the promise of his visual badassery or his reluctant heroism. More of a shame than that, the action itself feels ramshackle and sloppy as it plods forward toward its climax.

Other Bruckheimer stable directors Tony Scott & Michael Bay know how to showcase setpieces with the bravado befitting of the moment. Unfortunately, this flick tries hitting the right action notes but is always one key off.
BUT THAT'S JUST ME.

Agreed. Forgot about Bringing Out the Dead somehow. Make that a top 5

I don't think I could come up with two paragraphs' worth of words to describe Con Air.

And IWB, I unabashedly love the dude and the level to which he takes his performances. Agree to disagree.
I just can't get past the fact that he has only two facial expressions.

aside from the Janie Jones scene, I despise everything about brining out the dead (although the movie did suck less than the book).

I'm not typically a guy who cares if Hollywood remakes an older movie. People who love the original don't have to see the new version. Yada yada yada.

But I read today that they are going to remake Point Break with Gerard Fucking Butler playing the Bhodi role. Are you kidding me? Nope. Should never happen.

There should be some minimum time before a remake of a movie can be made. Seems way too soon to be considering remaking Point Break. Johnny Utah still looks the same for cryin' out loud.

Reliving my childhood by watching Good Burger on Netflix. What a terrible movie.
