I am sure most of my readers, all 30 of you, are familiar with Nicolas Cage’s 2008 masterpiece of film making: Bangkok Dangerous. It received the illustrious 9% approval rating on rotten tomatoes.
Here is the trailer for you to behold:
By all accounts this is a terrible movie. For some reason I have really wanted to see it. Perhaps just to torture myself or prepare for a dystopian post apocalyptic future. In a few years from now when I am running and hiding from the mutant zombie weresquirrels I can think, well at least this isn’t as bad as that time I watched Bangkok dangerous.
So I put the movie on my netflix queue. Finally it arrived and I pulled out the pristine blue ray. It had not a scratch or speck of dust, as if inexplicably nobody had ever rented it before. I debated when would be the best time to watch. I considered the need for large amounts of alcohol but in the end I popped it in my ps3 stone cold sober. The previews started, btw previews all for really bad movies, and then the ps3 hung. I mean completely hung. I had to unplug it. So weird. I began again. It hung at a different place. I tried one last time. My desire for bad Nicholas Cage hair could not be stopped. I skipped past the previews… and it hung.
So I think my ps3 for taking the punishment so I didn’t have to.
