Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you. I liked the Rock as well, also because Cage is geeky all the way through but the end. And I will definitely miss Connery.

BTW, I like your sig' very much. Has a special meaning to me.

Thanks.  Ol' Axl was able to pull out a good lyric now and then.  You might enjoy "November Rain," as well.  He's a real nutcase, but his music was important to me -- not so much for the meaning of the lyrics, but more from the emotions in the music.  It sort of pulled me out of my shell as a kid.

Yes, I did enjoy Cage's character in the movie.  It's impossible for me to not love the geeky hero, being a somewhat geeky guy myself.  "Ha!  See?  The geek can beat the hell out of the bad guys and save the world!"  Similar to Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day, too -- also one of my favorite action movies.  (I enjoyed he and Will Smith playing off of one another.)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
