||Explicit#8 - Mandy (LIVE)||Huge thanks to London's Hyland Cinema for hosting us for live episode, following a screening of Mandy. And thank you as well to everyone who came out to the movie and stuck around for the conversation!||11/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||Explicit#6 - Vampire's Kiss||Time for the infamously GIF-able Cage movie that bombed at the box office and -- as we discuss -- deserves another look.||7/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#5 - The Best of Times||We dug deep to find the on-screen debut of a young, teenage Nicolas Coppola, in the never-picked-up pilot episode of a musical teen dramedy called The Best of Times.

||Explicit#4 - Snake Eyes||We've been talking about what we perceived as the Nicolas Cage action movie phase of the 90's and it turns out, that's not quite what Snake Eyes is.

An essential film podcast in the making
In the 2006 film Wicker Man, Nicholas Cage’s character has a cage filled with live bees placed on his head, and as they sting him relentlessly he screams, “not the bees!”
My reaction to the premise of this podcast was the polar opposite.
Caroline & Dylan bring the same insightful and entertaining discourse from the NetFlakes Podcast and bring it to bear, like a conversational laser, upon the corpus of Cage’s filmography. Their methodology is sound, moving through Cage’s long career in an interesting way. I have seen none of the movies they have covered so far and yet I have been enthralled by this podcast.
