Yes.

Doesn't sound very... Christian.
I guess you don't know many Christians.

It's an "I told you so" thing, better known as a "You're going to Hell, and I was right! That's what you get for not listening to me, er, God! Yeah, God!" thing. The whole book series, and the movies, are both insufferably smug in every way.

So that's why Kirk Cameron was attracted to it!

It would appear that there's enough smugness to go around...

(this is not against you personally, BTW)

Re: Nicolas Cage's Career hits a new low.

Nicolas Cage is his generation's version of Michael Caine, who used to be everywhere doing some of the best and worst films ever seen (example: Oliver Stone's The Hand, which Caine did because he needed money for a new garage). Caine would often take a bad script because it allowed him to do something he hadn't done before, or shoot at a location he hadn't been before, so he could treat it as a working holiday.

Edit: I recommend Caine's book, Acting in Film, which apparently was based on some videos he did coaching some aspiring actors doing acting exercises.

Patrick Stewart confessed to making Wild Geese II so he'd have money for home repairs.

Supposedly Christopher Walken has never turned down a role if his schedule allows for it.

Patrick Stewart only did TNG because he thought the show would be cancelled at the end of the first season, and he needed some quick money. Of course he grew to enjoy working on the series.

Patrick's also on record as saying he did the film Lifeforce in order to buy new windows for his house. And he gets his first on screen kiss*!

I did not know that Nicolas Cage had financial problems. That explains his slew of bad movies choices in recent years.

Well, I'll be honest, I don't like Kirk Cameron. I consider him to be a self righteous, ignorant jackanape.

Not at all Jesus like though.
