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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Cage Rage: Bringing Out the Dead

Gas up  the ambulance and break out the crash-cart, because Bringing Out the Dead is the Greatest Movie EVER and also the January entry for The Year of the Cage!

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

Review in a Nutshell:  At times lyrical, at times psychedelic, at times darkly humorous, Bringing Out the Dead is a gritty drama of hope and human redemption.
