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!

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!

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.

Cage Rage: Honeymoon in Vegas

What happens in Vegas stays in Hawaii, because Honeymoon in Vegas is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the return of GME! original co-host, Katherine the Great.

Review in a Nutshell:  Properly channeled, Nic Cage’s manic energy makes for surprisingly funny comedic viewing.  Honeymoon in Vegas is a genuinely fun viewing experience full of familiar faces and outlandish situations.

This movie contains:

Crazy Cage Face.

Nic Cage, Master of Disguise.

The Flying Elvises.

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.

Cage Rage: The Wicker Man

Hide the honey pot, because The Wicker Man is (definitely not) The Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title to download our review of the film, featuring guest co-hosts Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentleman.

Review in a Nutshell: Good composition and production design cannot save a film that is poorly plotted, unconvincingly cast, and ultimately as subtle as a kick in the groin. Watch it for Nic Cage spazzing out. Or better yet, watch this clip on Youtube instead.

And now, Your Moment of Nicolas Cage Zen:


Cage Rage: Wind Talkers

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.
