Episode 72: The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

After an unbearable wait, this week we leap (finally!) with Nicolas Cage to recent 2022 action comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. We discuss our love of Nic Cage (again), cageisms, and what we thought of this film. (Spoiler: actually quite bearable).

Season 3, Episode 18

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Nicholas Cage

From: 8mm

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Believe it or not this will be our 7th Nicolas cage movie so far since we started this podcast but is the first time we have leapt with the great man. How has it taken this long? The answer to that is as mysterious as whatever criteria Nic uses to pick his roles…

 

Where are we leaping to?

Make Up: Bill Corso

To: Deadpool

Chosen by:
Crew (Michael)
Film (Michael)

Mike leaps with a make up guy for the first pick of his three in a row to get to Deadpool. Bill Corso has done make up for 75 films, many of them very popular. Some of them quite good.
