Revenge of the Ugly Puppy Syndrome

Fire up your motorcycle, because Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  This movie is enjoyably terrible, and the review strays into some surprisingly intellectual territory.  We are all shameless Nicolas Cage apologists. Do not believe our lies.

“…and a Happy New Year (of the Cage?)”

Break out your Seal of Solomon rings, because Season of the Witch is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-host Jon Brescia.

Review in a Nutshell:  Triple-wolves, zombie monks, Ron Perlman head-butting everything in sight, and Nicolas Cage’s primordial hair piece…what’s not to like about this ridiculous supernatural “thriller”?

Move Over, Stanley Kubrick…

Buckle up for a beat-down full of bullets and babies, because Drive Angry is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the poster or the movie title above to download our review of the film, featuring…a pair of mysterious, crime-fighting podcasters!

Review in a Nutshell:  One of my cohosts called me a crazy person for implicitly comparing this film to A Clockwork Orange.  He’s probably right.

Cage Rage: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Don your snazzy wizard hat, because The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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

featuring guest host Daryl “I’m not Here to Make any Friends” Surat from AnimeWorldOrder.

(Also, I guest star on their most recent episode!)

Review in a Nutshell:  The story is a bit trite, but The Sorcerer’s Apprentice stands on the strength of its special effects, its wizard fights, and Nic Cage’s bodacious fashion sense.  As family friendly films go, it’s an enjoyable little romp.

This movie contains:

Nerds getting Picked On.

Dapper Doctor Octopus.

Mind Explosion?

Nic Cage as Himself.

And thus we bring Cage Rage: The Year of the Cage to a close.  It’s been a bumpy ride.  But fear not, brave listeners, as long as hope survives, there will always be more Cage to go around.

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: Raising Arizona


Strap into your car-seats, because Raising Arizona 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:  Only the Coen Brothers could pull off a comedy about infant kidnapping.  Raising Arizona features great performances, wacky situations, excellent cinematography, good pacing, and the Coen Brother’s trademark twisted sense of humor.

COMING SOON!

We get in the mood for Howl-oween with a truly dire film and a truly fabulous guest host.

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: Fire Birds

Hide your periscopes and ladies underwear, because Fire Birds is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Eeeper of the Eeeper’s Choice Podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  Fire Birds tries to be Top Gun with helicopters instead of fighter jets and South American drug lords instead of the U.S.S.R.  It doesn’t really work, but did you just see that freakin’ chopper explode?

This movie contains:

Bored Cage.

Sulky Cage.

 

Sleazy Cage.

 

Trust us, it’s for SCIENCE!

FINAL THOUGHT:

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!

Cage Rage: Face / Off

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.

Likewise.

A Box of Treasures.

Oh yeah, there’s something about face transplants, too.
