Thought of the Day #30

I just finished watching Bangkok Dangerous with Nicolas Cage. I don't recommend the movie at all. But it did get me thinking about how just small details can ruin a movie. From the first moment of the movie, I was fixated upon Nicolas Cage's "Gene Simmons-style" hair. I find Gene a bit on the repulsive side. Oh, wait, make that REALLY repulsive. The hair is just the tip of the iceberg on that guy. Anyway, Nicolas Cage wearing the same icky hair ruined the entire movie. I don't mean to say that if the hair was "ok" the movie would have been fabulous, but it sincerely distracted me from potentially enjoying other details.
