Super Serious Film Fest – The Rock (1996)

Welcome to The Rock, and welcome to the first review of Super Serious Film Fest’s “Season of the Cage”.  Released in 1996, this modern classic stands as one of Nic Cage’s, as well as Michael Bay’s, finest action movies.  It’s not quite the level of Caginess you’re probably looking for but the Season of the Cage is just warming up.  Join us next week for The Weather Man.

Bald Movies – Highlander (1986)

Special thanks to our buddy Jason Shankel hailing from the Nattercast for commissioning this podcast for the 1986 sci-fi action fantasy film Highlander, directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Sean Connery and Christopher Lambert. Jason and his friends also did a deep dive on Highlander, so please check that out if you’re looking for a very affectionate and informed take from life-long fans of the franchise.  As for us, we thought Highlander was cheesy fun.  The film boasts an excellent soundtrack, exciting and varied sets for the extended sword fights, and some of the sturdiest and most interesting fantasy bones to hang a franchise on.  We walk away wondering why hasn’t anyone rebooted this?
