Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #96 (8th Anniversary Edition): Between Worlds

Hey, everyone! Welcome to my 96th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series. If you remember back a few days ago, I decided for this edition that I wasn’t going to you let guys decide which bad film I was going to watch and I wasn’t going to pick it myself. Why was that you ask? It’s because this one marks the 8th anniversary of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon column. 8 years. I can’t believe it’s been that’s how long I’ve been doing this column. Time has definitely has flown by so fast. So which bad film have I chosen for the 96th/8th anniversary edition of the article? I decided to go without a doubt one of the bizarre that my favourite actor Nicolas Cage has ever starred in (and that’s saying a lot): the 2018 supernatural drama/thriller BETWEEN WORLDS. How on earth did a film a premise this bat shit insane get made? Does Nicolas Cage give one of the most “Cage Rage” performance on his career here? Read on and find out! Enjoy!

I know I’ve said this a billion times before, but I’m going to say again: is it too late for me to *not* watch this film? #BetweenWorlds

Oh, Nicolas Cage. How you bring me so much joy even when you star in not-so-good films. #BetweenWorlds

Why do these opening credits feel like something out of a Lifetime Channel film? #BetweenWorlds

Oh, all the ice puns I could be making right now with this sequence of two people under a lake of ice. #BetweenWorlds

Oh, hi, Nic Cage! I don’t think the bizarre trucker outfit he’s wearing is a costume, it was his own wardrobe that he rocked up on set with after a party fueled 5 days prior to shooting this scene. #BetweenWorlds

Ummm… I don’t why we just had a close up of random some guy’s arse crack, but it certainly sets the tone how crazy this film is about to be for the rest of it. #BetweenWorlds

Oh, hi, Franka Potente! I haven’t seen anything in ag-holy crap! She’s being chocked out by some guy in a bathroom stall! #BetweenWorlds

Nic Cage to the rescue! #BetweenWorlds

“Next time, why don’t you wrestle a mangator!”… What… Wait?! What type of dialogue was that?! #BetweenWorlds

“You have a family?” “Wife and daughter… You like?” “They’re beauti-“ “Ooops! They’re dead.” WTF Nic Cage?! What kind of reaction is that?! #BetweenWorlds

Okay, I’m only a few minutes into this film and this may be one of the most bizarre films that Nic Cage has ever appeared in… and that is saying something. #BetweenWorlds

So… Franka is a psychic and she allows herself to get strangled, so that she can astro project herself out of her body… Again, WTF!!! #BetweenWorlds

So now Franka needs Nic Cage to strangle her so she can save her comatose daughter, who’s spirit has left her body and she needs to return it her or she will lose her daughter to the other side… I’m not making this shit up! This is actually happening right now! #BetweenWorlds

Okay, Cage just choked Franka and they’re were able to bring her daughter’s soul back to her body… This is just… Wow. #BetweenWorlds

I have no words for any of this it’s only the first few minutes. #BetweenWorlds

Okay, so now Franka’s daughter Billie is awake and acting very weird to Cage. I don’t like where this is going. #BetweenWorlds

I read somewhere that the director originally going to make a standard thriller but than she decided to make into a David Lynch style surreal film. Umm… This feels more like a film that people think that Lynch would be like, not actually feels like one. #BetweenWorlds

I like how Cage and Franka immediately go back to her place and he quickly falls asleep while she is making the coffee. #BetweenWorlds

Whiskey with your coffee? Classy. #BetweenWorlds

Even though Cage & Franka have only known each other for a few hours and they’re already banging each other on the couch. Boy, that escalated quickly. #BetweenWorlds

Why does this film look like it only cost $50 to make? #BetweenWorlds

3 days later and the daughter Billie is already back home. Quickest hospital stay ever. #BetweenWorlds

Don’t worry, Franka. I cry over child proof caps on medication too. #BetweenWorlds

Umm… How are Franka’s character Julie and Billie mother & daughter? They look almost the same age as people than parent & child. #BetweenWorlds

“A man isn’t a man without his truck” Umm… I’m pretty sure he can be, Cage. #BetweenWorlds

Holy shit! One of the two male friends of Billie is Hopper Penn, the son of Sean Penn & Robin Wright. That’s mind blowing! #BetweenWorlds

I like how Nic Cage is wearing a shark tooth on his necklace. #BetweenWorlds

Okay, the score for this film is weird. #BetweenWorlds

I don’t know about anyone else, but there needs to be more scenes of Nic Cage smoking weed in cinema. #BetweenWorlds

So… Billie is watching Cage & Franka. She really is the Denny from THE ROOM of this film isn’t she? #BetweenWorlds

Ummm… Why Nic Cage talking about the infamous crucifix scene from THE EXORCIST while having sex with Franka? #BetweenWorlds

Billie is watching Cage & Franka having sex. I’m disturbed. #BetweenWorld

Well… Billie is really acting weird at the moment. #BetweenWorlds

Wow! Nic Cahe just walked passed Billie being naked in her room. Not awkward at all. #BetweenWorlds

“You want a beer?” “Does the Tin Man have a sheet metal cock?” Oh, man. This dialogue just continues to amazingly and hilariously bad lol. #BetweenWorlds

Uh, oh. Billie is sitting on the couch with Cage and she has her hand on his knee… I don’t like this… #BetweenWorlds

Brace yourselves, everyone: we’re going to find out the story about what happened with Cage’s wife & daughter. #BetweenWorlds

I don’t know how Cage’s can work on anything around the house with all those millions of rings on his fingers. #BetweenWorlds

Uh, oh. I think Billie is trying to seduce Cage. Don’t like .#BetweenWorlds

HOLY SHIT! Billie isn’t actually Billie! It’s Cage’s late wife Mary whose soul now inhabits Billie’s body and she wants get back with him. THIS IS INSANE!!! #BetweenWorlds

Was this film really written & directed by Tommy Wiseau? Because that would completely explain the absolute insanity I’m seeing right now. #BetweenWorlds

Well… That didn’t take long for Cage to have sex with Billie. #BetweenWorlds

Well… The use of this Marilyn Manson song has definitely not aged well. #BetweenWorlds

I don’t know why Cage is being hosed down by Billie. I just don’t know. #BetweenWorlds

Seriously I can’t tell what is real and what is a dream in this film anymore. #BetweenWorlds

Man, this film feels like four completely different films in one. #BetweenWorlds

I like how this nurse is smoking in her car with the windows up. #BetweenWorlds

Umm… Why are we cross-cutting between two completely different sex scenes between Cage with both Billie and Mary? There’s no point! #BetweenWorlds

Now Billie wants Cage to read a book of poetry called MEMORIES while they are having sex and the book was written by… Nicolas Cage… NICOLAS CAGE?! WTF?! WHAT IS GOING ON?! I’M CONFUSED!!! #BetweenWorlds

Franka has stumbled Cage & Billie having sex and now the film has gone even now even more insane. #BetweenWorlds

Dammit, Cage! Puts some pants on! I don’t want to see you walking around in your underwear. #BetweenWorlds

Billie just knocked Franka out. Things have escalated now. #BetweenWorlds

Well, Billie’s two male friends are back. I forgot they were in this film. #BetweenWorlds

Uh, oh. Nic Cage accidentally shot Hooper Penn. His dad Sean Penn is not going to be happy that his friend Cage killed his son. #BetweenWorlds

Cage & Billie (Mary) are back at their old house. I have a feeling the climax of this is going to be insane. #BetweenWorlds

“Where can we find them.” “You have to choke me”. “… Wouldn’t shooting you be better?” SEE! Billie’s friend Mike is the only smart and logical one in this film. #BetweenWorlds

I have a feeling Nic Cage read this script and thought that this is so insane, that he had to be a part of it. I can definitely see that being the reason why he agreed to be in this. #BetweenWorlds

Oh, shit! Cage just that his daughter didn’t die in the fire, his wife Mary killed her and then covered it up! #BetweenWorlds

Oh, man… Cage thinks he can hear his daughter’s voice calling out to her. This is hysterical. #BetweenWorlds

Okay… You’ve never lived until you’ve seen Nicolas Cage crying while winding up a Jack In The Box. #BetweenWorlds

Oh, no! Franka sacrificed herself to get Mary out of Billie’s body! #BetweenWorlds

Ummm… Cage… Where did you get container of petrol from? #BetweenWorlds

Holy shit! Cage just doused himself with petrol and is now setting himself on fire! This film is insane! #BetweenWorlds

I like how Cage is still smoking a cigarette while he’s burning alive. Kind of bad arse really. #BetweenWorlds

You know for someone who’s burning alive, Cage is taking it pretty well. #BetweenWorlds

Well, Billie & Mike have escaped. Now they can get away from this film now. #BetweenWorlds

Ummm… Why are we seeing a flashback on Cage’s character as a teenager? #BetweenWorlds

Oh, shit. Teen Cage just pulled a shotgun on his abusive Dad! #BetweenWorlds

So… Did Teen Cage just shoot his Dad? It just cut to black before we know that’s conclusion. #BetweenWorlds

That flashback seemed that should have been shown earlier in the film, not at the very end for no apparent reason. #BetweenWorlds

Well, that’s the end of the film. Nicolas Cage has starred in some truly nutty films in his time, but this glorious disaster is up there as the most bizarre one of them all. This was like watching THE ROOM for the first time but with Nic Cage as the lead. #BetweenWorlds

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 96th/8th anniversary edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out in later this month for my 97th edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad films: BALLISTIC: ECKS VS. SEVER, BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR or MANNEQUIN TWO: ON THE MOVE. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
