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 37: Fargo (1996)

The guys get their hands dirty with another Coen Brothers classic, the brilliant 1996 crime film Fargo, don’tchaknow? The film blurs the genre lines of comedy and drama with the shockingly brutal events that seemingly occur at random; it’s a screenwriting achievement in that the actual screenwriting is so well hidden by the wonderfully natural performances and amazing story craft. Fargo is a film that truly embodies the beauty of telling a story on screen, one that asks the viewer to appreciate the little things in life and maybe don’t try to kidnap their spouses. The guys also discuss New Year’s Resolutions and what their own paintings would be in a stamp contest.
