    100% on RT right now for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent:

    https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the...massive_talent
    I finally got around to seeing Unbearable Weight a few nights ago. Watched it on DVD from the library. It was good, it was fun, it was good fun. Really enjoyed it, and also the special feature post-screening Q&A at SXSW 2022.

    Also watched Bringing Out the Dead last night. I saw it when it first came out, and recall liking it, but man, is that one wild-ass ride! Scorsese/Schrader killing it (again), excellent performances all around. Cage is absofuckinlutely awesome! Buckle in and check it out!

    The real argument Nic Cage>Sylvester Stalone?
    Valley Girl
    Raising Arizona
    Con Air
    Leaving Las Vegas
    Lord of War

    Or

    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    I’m a Trekkie… I’m Not in the Star Wars Family

    Whether or not Cage makes it onto the Enterprise remains to be seen. While not necessarily a franchise, Cage will be putting his own spin on Dracula when he stars as the iconic vampire in Universal’s upcoming action comedy “Renfield,” opening in theaters April 14.

    I dug NC’s list of his favorite NC films:
    PIG and MANDY are great.

    I “need” to revisit both BRINGING OUT THE DEAD and BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL NEW ORLEANS, though.

    And I just added JOE to my watch list…

    I do wish that Colbert had gotten Cage to elaborate on why those are his favorites…

    Didn't Gary Oldman do that exact thing in True Romance?

    EDIT: Well, I misremembered. (Happens a lot these days.) Not exactly the same thing, but in the appropriation ballpark. Still, I'll bet it was one of young Seth Rogan's favorite flicks.



    Of course that was 30 f'n years ago!

    Sweet find, enjoy! Looks like perfect shitter material.

    I've had a hankering lately to see Wild At Heart, but haven't been able to find it streaming anywhere, and the library doesn't have it, which is surprising.

    The Collector's Edition DVD and Blu-Ray is available on Amazon, but if anyone comes across a streaming option please post the source.

    “Brilliant”!!!
    Community had so many high points, especially with Abed.
    Animal Control , while mildly entertaining occasionally, pales in comparison.

    Just finished this.

    First takeaway: I thought I’d seen most of his films, but apparently not.

    Second takeaway: Trying to wrap my head around the author’s comparison of Busby Berkeley and Michael Bay; mostly because I’ve never seen a Busby film…

    Anyway, the book is breezily written, contains lots of excerpts from a wide range of interviews, and has some decent insight into the Hollywood machine. While essentially a career retrospective, it’s also a total esoteric film nerd kinda read.

    My only complaint is that the final coupla chapters feel rushed and the author merely glosses over some of Cage’s recently great films (Pig, Mandy, Color Out of Space, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent). I am guessing the book was already in the publishing phase when these films were released, but it’s kind of a shame that the author wasn’t able to/didn’t analyze them further.

    But as a career retrospective for a still working actor, it’s a great read.

    JOE

    Just watched this 2013 Nic Cage vehicle and he’s in prime, restrained intensity throughout.
    It can be a bit of a rough watch at times due to the realistic violence and dark lens shined upon downtrodden, working class denizens of an unnamed Texas rurality, but it’s always enthralling due to Cage’s performance. The story is familiar, yet it unfolds with a taut sense of purpose buffered by a solid supporting cast.
    You could call it a “roir” (rural noir) if you’d like.

    Dammit anyway!
    When will I ever learn?
    Basically I can’t unsee this, and not because it was horrible, but mostly because I think they just crammed all the best bits into it, thus kind of negating any reason to see the film itself.

    If you hate spoilers, perhaps avert your eyes…

    After seeing The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, I put Paddington 2 on my movies-to-watch list.
    Finally got around to watching it this morning.
    Everything Javi and Nic say and express in this clip is true.





    Okay, so I didn’t cry throughout the entire film, but I definitely teared up at the end. And I laughed a lot throughout.
    Paddington 2 is a prime example of a kid oriented movie made for all ages; it’s heartfelt without being saccharine or maudlin or overbearing, it hits all the right and proper notes, it has puerile humor, but also sophisticated humor, it pays homage to cinema ranging from Wes Anderson to Charlie Chaplin, and most importantly it never panders to the audience.
    Highly recommended!

    I keep seeing this thread bumped so I guess I'll chime in with this pic:

    This is his tomb in New Orleans. I took this last year, it's in a graveyard you can only see by tour. The guide said NC had tax problems (owed 6 million) so the IRS confiscated 3 buildings of his in NO including a very expensive and famous haunted house, but by law they can't confiscate your burial plot. So this is all he has left in NO.

    Most tombs in this graveyard looked nothing like this one and the majority were hundreds of years old. It stuck out as odd and misplaced.

    This has got to be the most perfectly designed, er, vehicle ever for Nic Cage.

    Right in his, er, wheelhouse!

    Quite understated based on the trailer

    A good morality tale

    I think NC has been averaging a movie a month this year...

    He recently had two in the theaters, Sympathy For The Devil and The Retirement Plan,
    has one dropping today (see trailer below), and another coming in Nov/Dec (Dream Scenario).
