Wayhomer Review #28: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Nicolas Cage from The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Episode #28 for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, in which our protagonist talks about the Bruckheimer machine, postulates as to how the film was written, and gets a bit more ranty about the words “suggested by” than he intended to.

Where to Find Stuff (and Support the Site):


  • They actually said the film was ‘suggested by’ the original short? That’s hilarious. I can’t even tell if that’s a case of obfuscation or an inability to understand the meaning of the word.

  • Wayhomer, are you in the Kansas City area? I’m asking because some of the background on your ride home looks really familiar.

  • Warpcrafter: In the Atlanta area, actually. And please, my friends call me Widge. “Wayhomer” sounds like I’m a character in Crisis on Infinite Earths or something. :-)

  • I hate to break it to you, but girls have the same dream…at least a bunch of us do.

    My big quibble (and it is a major quibble) is not CGIing the Twin Towers in during the one flashback scene set in 2000. But, I enjoyed the film aside from that and the occasional continuity gaffe.

  • Well, I’m sure the dreams cross genders, but with boys it has–traditionally–been they are a “hero” while girls fantasize about being secret royalty. Especially these days that can lead to princesses who kick some ass, but those are the two deep-seated fantasies. Which is why Harry Potter works, because it combines both into a single character. He is not only the secret protagonist but secret royalty as well, “The Boy Who Lived.”

  • True. I guess really just wanted the spaceship to come and take me on a grand adventure back to my real planet and didn’t actually care about my specific role on it.
