Break out the matched pistols, because Face / Off is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Ken Nabbe, aka the Internet’s Joey Snackpants.
Review in a Nutshell: Face / Off is the American film that best showcases John Woo’s eccentricities and directorial flourishes. Whether that’s a complement or a criticism depends on how you feel about John Woo.
The movie contains:
The Mustache of Champions.
Crazy Cage Face.
A Box of Treasures.
Oh yeah, there’s something about face transplants, too.

Protect your radio, because Windtalkers is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the picture above or the movie title to download our review of the film, featuring guest cohost Daryl Surat of Anime World Order.
Review in a Nutshell: The picture above encapsulates the totality of Windtalkers, a melodramatic war drama directed by John Woo. A throw-back to an earlier era, Windtalkers feels out-of-place and unrealistic by modern standards, but is not nearly as bad as many criticisms would lead you to believe.
And Now, Your Moment of Nicolas Cage Zen:
Addendum: The Hayao Miyazaki article that we mention at the end of the review can be found here.

Paul may be a bit of a John Woo hater, but Last Hurrah for Chivalry is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: Combining manly melodrama with innovative action scenes, Last Hurrah for Chivalry is a kung fu classic. It works equally well when you’re on heavy medication, too.
Sleeping Wizard, or Snoopy?
Aerial Sword-Swinging Silliness.
