Episode 54: Con Air (1997)

Strap in, because it’s going to be a bumpy flight this week for 1997’s action classic Con Air. As with any other movie starring Nic Cage, most of the conversation is dominated breaking down his legend, but they also discuss whether a film like Con Air is worthy of critical discussion in comparison to something that’s considered to be a little bit more serious. They quickly decide it’s probably not worth it and talk about Nic Cage’s southern accent, his hair, his BMI, magnetism and more. They attempt to place Con Air in the pantheons of ’90s action films, which is really a genre all its own.
