This must be your lucky day, because you’ve just rolled Snake Eyes.
Believe it or not, this is better than the actual dialogue in the 1998 pulp, noir, cheesefest that is one of the Cage-iest of Nicolas Cage movies that there is. Brian De Palma directed and wrote the film, although it would have benefited from maybe another 17 writers being brought in. But for how flimsy the script was, the direction was actually pretty good, and ultimately this was a very enjoyable rewatch.
Ah, my metaphorical mohawk is spikey and brutal right now. SLC Punk reignited the Rude Boy in me and I am ready to fucking rock. I’m want to tattoo middle fingers on my face and tell the whole world to kiss my ass. Of course, I definitely won’t do that because I’ve completely Bought In. But I feel it deep down in my poser soul.
Gattaca is the movie that we recast this week, and hold onto your butts. This episode has no business being as funny as it is. We don’t know where it came from, and if we recorded this episode 50 times we couldn’t replicate this. It’s a hell of a way to celebrate getting both of us back in the studio.
This week is a movie that was an instant classic the moment it hit theaters. Although, you probably just remember it as the pie-fucking movie. If that doesn’t narrow it down enough for you…then what kind of media are you regularly consuming? The movie I’m talking about is, of course, American Pie. I do want to apologize for the sound quality. I was having some broadband issues over the weekend, and after numerous false-starts, we were lucky to even be able to record. But I’m glad we did, because talking about this movie was a lot of fun. As a junior in high school when this movie came out, it hit me in a way that was all too real at that time. Watching it again all these years later, it immediately put me in a time machine and took me back to 1999. This might be the biggest nostalgia bomb for me of all of the movies we’ve recast. Mike’s had a few, but this one is a little later and was absolutely EVERYWHERE when I was a senior, and everyone had their eye on prom.
