What the Hell Is Going On In This Video?

Nicholas Cage's remake of The Wicker Man movie somehow came up during the course of Thanksgiving dinner. The Onion A.V. Club famously condemned the movie by saying: "generally, it makes no damn sense." Draw your own conclusions after watching these hilariously bad clips:

I watched this movie on HBO a couple weeks ago - I had seen these highlights previously and I was curious to find out exactly how bad it was.

A lot of these scenes are out of context or whatever, but that said, context didn't really supply them much sense/meaning anyway. Just a really bizarre, poorly-acted movie.

Normally, I'd reserve judgment until I actually saw the movie, since here, as Jake says, these are pretty much out of context. You could do a similar thing to Citizen Kane, and it'd make about as much sense. That said, this doesn't look promising at all - particularly the bee scene. I mean, I'm no expert, but his reaction was just so fake that it was impossible to take seriously.
