Episode 82 - Inconceivable

April 11, 2021

Welcome back everyone! Apparently, we may not have listeners after our hot takes last week, but fear not! We actually kinda liked this movie. Nicolas Cage plays the father figure in one of those oh-shoot-we-hired-a-murderous-yet-sexy-nanny-Lifetime-original-movie-esque movies, Inconceivable (2017). Sure, it's a little formulaic, but that's part of the charm!

Episode 81 - Vengeance: A Love Story

Episode 81 - Vengeance: A Love Story

April 5, 2021

Wow...we stumbled across another absolute stinker. Not only is Vengeance: A Love Story (2017) really bad, it could easily be considered insanely offensive. We break it down here for you so that you never, ever, EVER have to watch this piece of junk. 

 

We say this in the episode, but it bears repeating - whenever we make light of this movie, please note that we are making fun of the film and not the subject matter.

 

Fair trigger warning: there is a lot of talk about brutal sexual assault and violence both in this movie and in this podcast.

Episode 80 - Arsenal

Episode 80 - Arsenal

March 29, 2021

It's the return of Eddie King, baby!!! You read that right, this gloriously average 2017 film, Arsenal, sees the return of the greatest character ever committed to film. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and watch Deadfall (1993) and then listen to our commensurate podcast. We had some fun with this one, but, honestly,  who could ever have a bad time at Ronnie's Barbecue?

How's your NCAA bracket doing? Mine sucks, so I made a Nicolas Cage one instead. Join us as we definitively rank the best scenes from the 50 or so Nic Cage movies that we've watched in this past year. Let us know if you agree...actually don't...ALL DECISIONS ARE FINAL! :) :)

 

If you are still super-duper confused, check out our March Madness episode from last March, why dontcha?

Episode 79 - Army of One

Episode 79 - Army of One

March 22, 2021

Welcome back to our humble little podcast, friends! Fans of our show will know that last week really tried Steve's faith in movies. This week, however, Hanna's faith in movies was tried. We watched Army of One (2016) which tells the tale of real life hero/patriot Gary Faulkner, played by Nicolas Cage. Listen this week as Hanna attempts to keep it together, we play lots of clips, and we have #cheesechat. Enjoy!

Episode 77 - Snowden

Episode 77 - Snowden

March 8, 2021

This week, we kick off March 2021 with another political thriller from Oliver Stone - Snowden (2016). Nicolas Cage plays a professor with, like, three lines in the entire film. We don't spend too much time talking politics, but we do both embarrass ourselves pretty severely. Have we told you lately that we loved you (for continuing to listen)?

Episode 76 - Dog Eat Dog

Episode 76 - Dog Eat Dog

February 28, 2021

Welcome back, folks! This week, we watched Dog Eat Dog (2016) - a movie so average, we started losing our collective minds. Join us as we discuss Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe as career criminals in a one-last-job motif that will drive you nuts...or you'll love it...the critics are split and so are we, I think. Could this highly stylized crime drama/thriller have benefitted from better editing? Probably! Listen and find out!

Episode 75 - The Trust

Episode 75 - The Trust

February 21, 2021

In this week's movie, Nicolas Cage plays a good cop gone bad alongside Elijah Wood and the late, great Jerry Lewis. Listen this week as we talk about The Trust (2016) which seems to spark something in Nic we haven't seen in a while. We also run down the official ranking of Nic's first 75 movies (holy f***ing s*** we've seen 75 of these things?!?!?!)...Enjoy!

Episode 74 - Pay the Ghost

Episode 74 - Pay the Ghost

February 15, 2021

In this week's movie review and recap, Nicolas Cage plays Brian Mills - an ex-CIA operative who must rescue his daughter against all odds. He has a particular set of skills...oh wait...wrong movie...Pay the Ghost (2015) seems like Taken on paper when you hear it's about a man whose son gets kidnapped and he'll stop at nothing to find him. BUT THERE'S A TWIST! It's spooky ghosts, like actual cult worship and portals and whatnot. It's not the worst horror movie we've ever seen, but we wouldn't compare it to The Exorcist, for example...
