The Lord Cage’s Prayer:
Our Father, which art in Snake Eyes,
Nicolas be thy name;
thy Face/Off come;
thy Con-Air be done,
on earth as it is in Deadfall.
Give us this day our daily Ghost Rider.
And forgive him for Trespass,
as we forgave him for Windtalkers.
And lead us not into Adaptation;
but deliver us from The Rock.
For thine is the Wicker Man,
the National Treasure,
for ever and ever.
Hello Supercult West! This is Supercult South Bad Movie Professor Cameron Coker (BS in “Best of Bay” with a minor in “Sean Connery saying, ‘Of Course You Are’”) and I’m reaching out to you from across the country to help hype tonight’s screening of The Rock!
Whadaya say we cut the chit-chat…A-Hole?
The Rock is Michael Bay’s 2nd film after his directorial debut with Bad Boys. It stars Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, has a total body count of 25, an average shot length of 2.6 seconds, a budget of $70 million, a box office gross of $335 million, a 7.4 of IMDB, a 66% on Rotten Tomatoes, a spot in the Criterion Collection, and its own Bollywood remake called Qayamat: City Under Threat, complete with unreasonably beautiful actor and a full roster of pop songs and dance numbers. The Rock is easily one of Michael Bay’s best films, and it just happens to be Bay’s favorite of the films he has worked on.
It’s over-the-top, but not quite as mindless as Bad Boys 2. It’s explosive, but not quite as sexist or racist as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It’s a music video on steroids, a summer blockbuster on par with Speed or Supercult Classic Con Air. It’s almost too good for Supercult! Except that Nic Cage is in it…which means we are honor bound to watch the hell out of it!
Glass or plastic Supercultists! GLASS OR PLASTIC!
Supercult West is proud to present The Rock!
