featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: I think I pronounce Jim Jarmusch’s last name about ten different ways in this recording about a movie involving urban samurai, aging gangsters, icecream, and a boat on a roof. I don’t even know who I am any more. What year is this?

Magnificent Martial Violence!

Sharpen your machetes, because The Raid: Redemption is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring guest hosts Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  An Indonesian martial arts movie written and directed by a Welsh man, The Raid: Redemption is not just a typical action movie.  It blends drama and suspense with some of the most breath-taking and technically accomplished fight choreography in recent cinema history to create a tight, tense, thoroughly engrossing experience.

Ernie Dickerson Strikes Again!

Break out the turn-tables, because Juice is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  At times darkly humorous, at times lyrical and surreal, Juice is a crime drama that explores the lives of four poor black youths in the ghettoes of Harlem.  Tupac Shakur delivers a scene-stealing performance.

Michael Douglas Ruins Japan

Strap on your motorcycle helmets, because Black Rain is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring special guest host Jeremy from Destroy All Podcasts-DX.

Review in a Nutshell:  Ostensibly a police thriller, Black Rain is more of an excuse for Michael Douglas and Ridley Scott to stomp through the Land of the Rising Sun with enormous, hob-nailed boots.  As a cinematic artifact from the Eighties representing American cultural anxiety, it’s hard to beat this surprisingly crazy film.

This movie contains:

Michael Douglass, Puffy Avenger.

Hand Trauma.

Impromptu Karaoke.

Cage Rage: The Rock and Con Air

Buckle up for another double-feature, because Con Air and The Rock are the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the image or the movie titles above to download our reviews of the films, featuring another invasion from Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentleman.

Review in a Nutshell:  These films are dumb.  Really, really dumb.  But at least Nicolas Cage has great hair.

Cage Rage: Deadfall

Hold onto your wallets, because Deadfall is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Zac Lowe of the “Cult It or Can It” Podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  A stunning example of nepotism gone horribly wrong, Deadfall features Nicolas Cage at the very extreme of his lunacy.

This movie contains:

The Cage abides.

The Cage parties hard.

The Cage…

…completely…

…freaks out.

The Cage approves.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Deadfall in Five Seconds or Less.  Viewer Discretion Advised, Explicit Language ahoy!

Cage Rage: Kiss of Death

Get ready to bench-press some strippers, because Kiss of Death is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film.

Review in a Nutshell: Kiss of Death is a shockingly well-made crime drama full of character and suspense. Look for fine performances by a host of skilled actors, including but not limited to Stanley Tucci and Samuel L. Jackson. (Also Nicolas Cage.)

This film contains:

Infinite Sunglasses?

THE CAGE IS DISPLEASED.

Some upper-middle class jerk and his glass of wine.

Cage Rage: Bangkok Dangerous

Watch out for those eighties pop song references, because Bangkok Dangerous is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest cohost Jeff “Rich Lather” Tatarek of the Lather’s Blather Podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  A stylish crime drama done by two brothers who desperately want to be John Woo, Bangkok Dangerous is bad, but not as bad as the reviews would have you believe.  Also, Nic Cage has fabulous hair.

This movie contains:

Nic Cage, Master of Disguise.

Fat Daryl Surat.

Moon Face.
