Weatherman

A Nicholas Cage vehicle, pretty slow-paced and fairly enjoyable. I didn't like the Nicholas Cage character - Dave Spritz, I seem to notice a lot of Dave characters and people in the news getting bad publicity for our shared name (particularly the Duke LaCrosse player accused of rape recently) - very much. But I did understand his motivations, and liked the internal dialogue approach the movie took.

I applaud the movie for its unsatisfying ending that does not tie things up neatly and solve all the problems. That is how life goes, and it is nice to see a movie not have a happy (but not unhappy either) ending.
