Where Nicholas Cage went all wrong

I'm not sure exactly why this happens but it seems that several action guys have dabbled in the family friendly movie section, which in some cases is A) out of their talent pool B) a waste of their said talent pool. The latter, I believe is the case for Nicholas Cage, I mean he has a done a lot of kick ass movies. The Rock, Con Air, gone in 6o seconds ect ect. Then comes National Treasure, wow. I'll spare you the summary suffice to say in hindsight Disney truly is for kids, except for maybe Remember the Titans. So many times it seemed like the actors wanted to swear, but couldn't. Instead they had to replace the swear word with some lame ass variation that was worse than anything i had endured at bible college........Also, why the hell did Bruce Willis do the movie the Kid a few years ago. I mean he is Bruce "Die hard" Willis, not Bruce " i'm a girly man who works for Disney" Willis, well at least he shouldn't be. It seems to be a trend, because Arnold has done similar films, even hulk hogan has done stupid kids flicks, although that might not be outside his talent pool perhaps the vocab contained in those scripts would better suit his mental capacity. Vin disiel is another guy who has an kid flick coming out soon some garbage about an ex seal turned baby sitter. From guns, cars, explosives and women, to diapers, soothers, minivans and who gives a damn. To me, it's kinda like when Jordan played a few games in the minors with the white sox, what the hell, where's the logic(i mean besides he's "mj" and he could do whatever he wanted) he was a terrible terrible baseball player, which should not have surprised him since most of his life was spent playing basketball. Sucsessful crossover athletes and actors are a rarity, and in most cases they should should stick to what their good at.

What? You didn't enjoy Arnold as a teacher? It was hilarious. I much preferred that over his attempt at being a twin.

Now I want to go watch the Terminator...

Die Hard is one of my fav movies of all time. However, I also loved The Sixth Sense, and it involved Bruce dealing with a kid.

For me it isn't the genre of movie that matters, but whether or not the movie is any good.
