Movie review - 'Next' ... Nicolas Cage sends Mrs S into a coma

There have been some good movies about deja vu, the incomparable Groundhog Day still does it for me and I love the shopping mall scene in Minority Report.
I've not seen Deja vu with Denzel Washington, so I guess that's really Jamais vu, but the premise of this particular film is that Mr Cage can see 2 minutes into his own future, and then act to avert it. So I guess it's really Presque vu ?
Anyway, it failed to enthrall, which is a shame, the effects are good, the basic story (Phillip K Dick) is a great premise but neither baddies nor goodies are memorable and you got the impression that no-one ever asked, at any point during the making of this "why would someone do that ?"
End result Ne voyez pas ! Next !

That's two duds in a row for Mr Cage (see Ghostrider) two pillows on the Mrs Stuffy scale.

What about the old Python sketch about interviewing a Clairvoyant:

Clairvoyant: Yes it's true!
Interviewer: It it true that you can see the future?

And of course ye olde joke - Q. Why do gypsies have so few children?

Anyway thanks for the link about but firewall avoidance sites are on the list too!

It looks like they may have lifted the block but I have not tested with a post yet.
