Liz Reviews Adaptation (2002)

Liz: 5 out of 5 stars

Let me just start off by getting this off my chest. I really do not like Nic Cage. Growing up I just always knew that my mom didn’t like him very much as an actor and I guess I took that on and it grew into a pure hatred (perhaps a bit too strong, I’m sure he’s a good person maybe) of the actor. 588 more words

Adaptation. (2002)

A lovelorn screenwriter becomes desperate as he tries and fails to adapt The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean for the screen. (IMDb)

A film about its own screenwriter (Kaufman, played by Cage) trying to write its own screenplay: It’s head-spinning-ly brilliant and fascinating to watch, and is propelled forward by a wonderful double-turn by Cage (his self-deprecating internal monologues are priceless), along with solid support from Cooper and Streep. 32 more words

October Sky

Would I have liked this movie as much if I wasn’t a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal? Probably not, so take that into consideration when reading my praise of the film. 458 more words
