Snowy-snow: I remember watching 'Der Himmel über Berlin'. It was... very non-hollywood.
In a good way, in a really, really good way.
Arian hmn: Yeah, Wings of Desire a definitely a way better movie, because it as much
more of a complex, yet celebratory outlook on humanity. Which is why humans
see colours that the angels don't.. and that make perfect sense, the
sensation of touch and smell and taste and colours is worth nothing to
someone immortal, who never has felt any sense of suffering or coldness.
Xiaowen Xiao: In a way, I think they might be able to pull it off if they got a better
actor and focused on more of what it meant to be human or something like
that or decided to show a more comical way, how silly life is sometimes.
But I just felt Nicholas cage was a terrible pick to begin with. All I can
think about is his overacting and it makes me just want to laugh.
mst3KGf: It's telling about the quality of "City of Angels" is that the most
enduring thing about it is the Goo Goo Dolls song.
Mr. Divery: Considering how many legit bad movies Nic Cage made after City of Angels I
can say without any sense of Irony I enjoyed City of Angels. Is it a
perfect movie? Far from it.
But do you compare this movie with (whatever the name of that German
movie)? No, even if it's based on it. You compare it with Hollywood
Supernatural Romance films, because that's what it is. In other words is it
better than Twilight?
Audra Burgess: "Warm...." XD
kanchomerocks12: Der himmel über Berlin means the sky above/over Berlin.
RETROMACKINTOSH: I have to say I love this movie. I know most would probably not agree but
I really bought into Nicholas Cages's character and his plight to become
human. Maybe the reason I like it was because at the time when it came out
it was just so different from other movies Id seen,
GeorgeMonet: It would have been more interesting if the only way for Cage to become a
human is for him to transfer his angelness to the human he fell in love
with. Thus Ryan would become an angel and Cage would become a human and
they still wouldn't be able to bang. At least then we'd also get to hear
about how much better it is to be an angel from someone who used to be a
Zexion352: Okay, I think Nicolas Cage is handsome. You can find anything on anyone
that makes them stunning.
Patrick Dyer: If Nicolas Cage was an angel, I'd gladly go to Hell.
JamesCPotter13: and if you read the book series 'Blue Bloods' you have Fallen Angels who
have BECOME VAMPIRES!!!
Eva Togisala: at 3:34 me: well now we know snape dosn't have a croch
Julia Cornell: wait... how does der Himmel ueber Berlin translate to wings of desire...?
Richard Wallace: Hey that angel song wasnt.... too bad..... I have no taste in music *hangs
head in shame*
comrade vladimir: I'M A VAMPIRE!
MassacreAtTiffany: She said that he is ''beautiful'' not "handsome", "beautiful", and It's
city of angels, not the Monk from Mathew Lewis, Seth isn't evil or
anything, he don't torture kill and ingage into incest or anything... he
want to pork the girl he loves, so? What's wrong with that? Just because
you fall in love and want to have sex with the same person you suddenly are
devoid of any spirituality? What is he suppose to do? Cheat on the girl he
loves because having sex with her would defile her or something?
Spirituality and a hero complex are to different things, and please ''he
just wanna pork''? He's an angel, if he really wanted to pork he could
choose any girl and certainly even a hotter one, and he wouldn't give a
crap that one dies, if he really did ''just wanna pork" he would just
freaking go to a brothel and have an orgy you know, seriously... (which
actually could be really funny a movie to see x'D "Angel gets his rocks
off" or the sequel ''angel have a flying freak'' yup they have wings they
can x'D) and I know, still this movie is full of holes it's not perfect I
agree with you on some points, and your video give me some good laugh as
well, but I don't get what's so wrong with a bit of appreciate the little
things and earthly pleasure like food sex of just walk barefoot and have
the wind tickling your hair chest and your balls :3 (life is about
balance, if you remove simple pleasures it's unhealthy, people who pretend
to be ''only spiritual'' end up being insane or pedophile x'D ) , don't you
think this guys was just bored out his skull to do every day the same
freaking ''job for god" he just wanted to go out of this stuff, golden
cage/rat race call it whatever you want, and see something else, maybe he
wandered if there wasn't more to life... this guy has taken care of others
for centuries, no maybe he just want to live for himself for once, humans
have retirement, why not angels? x'D We could argue for centuries, about
"do angels reads thoughts and therefore can they feel human feeling sans
sensation by syncing with their nervous nexus" and all that, what's the
extent of their knowledge and power etc etc... but at the end of the day,
angel certainly don't exists anyway so we would just look ridiculous I
Collin Thomas: Does wittle Lindsey have a crushing wushy on Todd in the shadows y?
Nicolas_Cage: Hey, at least I helped jump start the Goo Goo Doll's career, right?
zammmerjammer: When watching this movie (my mom wanted to see it), I literally thought,
"Ha! wouldn't it be funny if she got hit by a truck?" ...AND THEN SHE WAS!!!
What an unbelievably bad movie.
SILLYLAMB: Ha ha ha touched by an angel.
Erik Heidema: and now Goo Goo Dolls keeps playing in my head...all day...thx nostalgia
Fozzie Droog: The very image of perfection.
Morbius Fitzgerald: I actually am a huge fan of the German New Wave film movement. I sat
through both Wings Of Desire and City Of Angels back to back and while I
don't think its fair to render COA a complete betrayal, it's still nothing
on the original.
Nefarius696: Just as I watched this video 'Eulogy for an Angel' started playing.
Игорь Кондратюк: I don't know how, but god is she hot. And I'm not even talking baout them
boobies, it's just all her mimics and.. I don't know. So beautiful.
Kelthire: 3:23 yup. 'Beautiful concept' while looking down at NChick's....
Alexandre Martins: Bruno Ganz as HItler was a great interpretation. He portrayed Hittler in
all his selfish evil, none ever better. Also, you can see him in a great
performance in Werner Herzog's Nosferatu. Granted, Jonathan Harker in that
movie is a bland character, but, then again, he does that wonderfully. His
look of pure sardonic evil when he turns into a vampire in the end is
absolutely perfect! He's one of my favorite actors of all time.
Of course, the idea of the "incredible heaviness of being German!" is just
laughable. Germans just take themselves all to seriously. Hell, life itself
can't be taken seriously!
2wingo: Oh please, the Nostalgia Critic's Nic Cage impression is WAY better than
Matthew Craig: So does Columbo solve the case in Wings of Desire?
Nigel Trotter: Meg...Freaking....Ryan. You must be one of the few humans on earth besides
Phil Hartman, that can make Nick Cage comparatively a good actor.
Hey, no. That priest didn't fall from anything. Kate Winslet is actually an
angel in disguise. The Lord just made her so perfect. That priest traded up.
But Nick, you gave up being an angel for Meg...freaking...Ryan. Carmen
Electra sure. J-Lo of course. But Meg Ryan. I wouldn't give up being a
chipmunk for her. Andre Brauer was in this and yet Nick Cage was the lead?
Man that guy is good at the Nick Cage voice. I want to hear that guy do Con
Air. He is funny.
With all the examples of Angel falling movies, you missed the two best
examples. Angel-A and even better. Date with an Angel.
Zexion352: Wait...There's a movie where Spiderman is a gay monk who falls in love with
...I want to watch this movie.
DrowSoldier33: Michael was a better angel.
ArtGirl Draws: Omg you and todd are dating! YAY!!!!!!!! :}♥
Jake Regan: I honestly think Nic Cage is not that ugly. Better than Gary Busey or
MrAvalerin: Nicholas Cage is the angel of death? F$%@ing Sweeeeeet!
dan theman: grossly miscast gag had me laughing for quite a while. I have no idea why.
THE AMAZING SPIDEYREVIEWS81962: this is the first movie I ever cursed at because it was so stupid
Disney65Fan: I remember this film years ago. The only reason I watched it was cause of
Meg Ryan. This was the one where Nichloas Cage falls for Meg Ryan and he
was a angel who becomes human and Ryan's charcther dies in a crash while
she was on a bike.
toverkleet: I see you talk about these angels, Lindsey, I can only see in my head the
angelic forces fighting the hellspawn in the Diablo series :p. No Snickeras
Cage does not come across as Tyreal for sure :p
Nightshift10000: Actually what disturbs me about this movie is that Breaking Benjamin stole
the whole angel of death scene at the beginning in their video Give Me A
Sign, and they made it better. Plus did anyone notice that about a decade
after the whole angel fad died out that the best Angel movie ever was made,
I'm referring to Legion. P.S. Was anyone else wishing they had used The Goo
Goo Dolls song Iris in the Disney Hunchback Of Notre Dame?
Spock Kirk: Joss weedon's angel tv show (i think it counts)
League of Super Critics: Hey, remember when Nicholas Cage was an angel? (Not so) good times.
Luis Camacho Jr: "And that's why gay marriage should be illegal?"
Ken Burns: Lindsay should WARN someone before showing Dennis' Franz's butt! That's
why Doug' is better: he remembers it so we DON'T have to!
Seriously, this is going down with the "car sex-scene hand-window" thing
in "TItanic" as things to turn out of my brain with a soldering-torch.
Kelthire: Mmm I think I know where's the actual city of angels is *stares at NChick
Jo Blow: i know this is stange but i have a crush on u if ur at least interested
even a little check out my ig cuttless954
GutsnoKen: I know it is a horrible comparison and the themes were quite different, but
what about the Movie Michael 0f 1996 with John Travolta?
"There was am angel Enjoying himself as best as he could, The end".
Pow Fist: citizen kane as an action thriller that sounds awesome!
