Radar Blips - Next

The Year: 2007

The Players: Ghost Rider and Jessica Biel

The Take: $18 million

Is this based on a book?: It is actually. Like Total Recall, Minority Report, Paycheck, Blade Runner, and Imposter, this was based on a story by Philip K Dick (though called the Golden Man).

Why you should see it: Nicolas Cage can see 2 minutes into his own future. That is a relatively interesting premise that makes his mullet sporting character pretty formidable. Sure, this isn't the greatest movie, but I have enjoyed most of the Dick adaptations as interesting sci-fi tales. This one kept my interest throughout, though it does vary a lot from the short story.
