WGDGB: THE WICKER MAN
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

I actually watched this last night. It wasn't great, but I didn't change the channel either. And, I didn't see that ending coming at all.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be enbered with your old nonsense. ~ Emerson

I love the original which is quirky and unnerving!

And I love the remake which is pure CAMP!

Nicolas Cage is so OVER THE TOP!

"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

I loved this from the youtube comments:

"Production budget for The Wicker Man: $35,000,000.

Worldwide box office earnings for The Wicker Man: $32,000,000.

Nick Cage in a bear costume clobbering a woman: Priceless."
