I have to say. I really liked this movie.
Classic scene 1. Nicolas Cage is eating hot food with his date. She give him Tum Yum Goong. HAHAHA how classic is that?
There's something about Nicolas Cage that makes him so likeable.
I'm writing this as I watch the video so I'll continue this later.
The things I loved about the movie. It is shot in Bangkok. You see Nick walking around the BTS, Floating Market, Soi 23, Saladang, and along the streets. There are Thai people in the movie. I especially like the parade down Narathiwat past Chong Nonsi BTS by Silom and circle around. It looked like it was shot at noon on some random day--that must have been a logistical nightmare.
I liked the eloquence of the movie. How it ties things together, yet it is still sort of real. To me and I know I'm really taking a big step here, BUT it's my opinion that this movie shows the typical foreigner coming here and falling for the environment. I mean if you want a place to start over, Bangkok may not be perfect, but it's doable. The people here are quite quick to ask about your salary, but not about why you are here? They'll tell you you gained weight, but the serious questions are left alone. I like that. And in this show, Cage falls into that sort of rhythmn. It's eloquent to me.
I am not going to discuss the plot or the movie anymore.
I enjoyed it, but hey, my favorite movies so you can compare:
1) The Inside Man. 2) Click 3) Battlestar Galactica (series) 4) The Nottie and the Hottie.
As you can tell, I'm a serious videographer. and I did take a cinema class in college, Cinema 101--it was awesome--watch a movie and go to a TA session. SWWWEEEETTTT.
