Hollywood's Odd Couple: Cage and Bruckheimer

I'm looking forward to the new "National Treasure" film. My wife says she can't stand Nicolas Cage because he has "no expression," but I think that's part of his charm. Of course, it didn't hurt that he's been opposite such talents as Téa Leoni, Don Cheadle, and Giovanni Ribisi (who, while not a "big" name, is a great actor in my opinion).

Besides, they're making comparisons between this new treasure-hunt movie and the Indiana Jones films. I love the mix of intelligence, action, and adventure in the old Harrison Ford classics, so if this has any relation at all I'm sure I'll be happy with it.

Bruckheimer and Cage--an EXCELLENT combination in "The Rock" (1996). Also stars Sean Connery, and Ed Harris.

I've always wanted to see "The Rock," but for some reason I've never gotten around to it. I like Connery, too, so I guess it'll on my "to-rent" list now.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
