That’s Weird – 20071029

Back to stalking METAPHOR, he watched The Wicker Man (2006).  Bee worshipping matriarchy indeed.   Mr. Fu was flipping channels, caught part of it, and was intrigued enough to look for it in the library.  Only he thought he saw “The Wicker Men” on the cable guide, and was disappointed he could only find The Wicker Man (1973) with Edward Woodward.  THE KAT insisted that Mr. Fu had it wrong, that it was “The Wicker Man” with Nicolas Cage, that we had a copy in the library, and she proceeded to produce it.

Sat down to watch the 1973 version, very interesting.  Ah, Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings kids)!  Ingrid Pitt (she was in Where Eagles Dare)!  A Hammer-fest!  Interesting ending, not a Hollywood Ending for sure.  Mr. Fu started to watch the making of bit, figuring he would bail early.  Nope, watched the whole thing, the movie they did not want you to see, or so it seemed.  Mr. Fu put it back in the only to discover – The Extended Version (from the vaults of Roger Corman and such).

Now we have to follow up with the 2006 version.  Hmmmm, hopefully it will be better than METAPHOR suggests.  Though Mr. Fu will not hold his breath.
