Yeah, I'd say the first National Treasure was a matinée, but the second was only a rental. I haven't seen Adaptation though, I'll look it up. He was great in Kick-ass and Bad Lieutenant seemed really strange when i rented it, so I'm not really sure if I liked that movie or not, I'll watch it again sometime. Wasn't that keen on The Sorcerers Apprentice, just a matinée for me at the most. But Lord of War is good, worth watching.
I saw "Adaptation" during 2010. It came out in 2002 (I picked it as the best film of that year), and not only did it help prove to me that Nicholas Cage is a good actor, but, seeing it for the first time in 2010, which I thought was a weak year for cinema, it actually reminded me why I love film and why I want to be involved with film for the rest of my life.
