There Will Be Linking

ModFab chooses the heroes of 2007. There will be watery eyes [...and there will be less "there will be"s very soon. Promise. Just a temporary tic on account of There Will Be Blood taking up so much space in me noggin -ed.]

I hate Nicolas Cage's agent but I think he has much more than 3 remarkable performances. We agree on LLV (except I think his won was perfect over Sean Penn's great work), but Moonstruck and Peggy Sue? No matter how good he's in these two movies, his other great performances are: the violent, passionate and extravagant Sailor in Wild at Heart; the vulnerable and sad Frank Pierce in Bringing Out The Dead (he's so touching in the final scene with Arquette); and hysterically funny and histrionic in Adaptation - I'd love to see him as a Woody Allen clone, like Branagh and Cusack (I mean it).

The title should have been 'There Will Be Blog'

re: Reports from the edge

While the point is clear and obvious, the writer did himself a great disservice by omitting The Bourne Ultimatum, Nikki Blonsky, Amy Adams, Leslie Mann, Ruby Dee, etc. You shouldn't change the rule just because it doesn't fit your point.


oops. i didn't look at the corresponding box office charts but you have a point.
