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.

Episode 45: Falling Down (1993)

The guys finally snap and go postal this week on their episode of Joel Schumacher’s 1993 cult classic Falling Down. They compare the film with others like it that use heat as a device to show a character’s breaking point, celebrate the hilariously ’90s style of the film and its director, who is probably stuck back in 1996 and we don’t even know it, and just how this film has managed to garner such acclaim, when seemingly everything points to it being a bad movie. See where the guys themselves stand as well as their own vanity plate a la D-FENS and where they’d pick to retire.
