Nic Cage with Nicky

Nicolas Cage is “Nick Cage” in the new movie from director Tom Gormican. It’s a buddy comedy, it’s an action flick, it’s a meta-commentary on movies themselves (and Cage’s career in particular). So who better to have as our guest than the author of the new retrospective Age of Cage, Keith Phipps (of The Next Picture Show podcast, The Reveal, and more)?

We’ll also daydream about what other stars we’d give the ‘Unbearable Weight…’ treatment!


What’s Good:
Alonso: gargling with apple cider vinegar
Drea: Ghost by Dolly Alderton
Keith: Comedy, Comedy, Comedy, Drama by Bob Odenkirk
Ify: Leica Q2 & Steam Deck I

The Buster Keaton episode of The Twilight Zone is called “Once Upon a Time”

Staff Picks
Drea: Red Rock West
Alonso: Irma Vep
Keith: Petite Maman
Ify: Color Out of Space 

**Friday May 6 at 5pm PT, Drea and Alonso host the #MaxFunDrive Finale Hangout!**
