    Wild at Heart (1990)

    That's true, I mean I know that Wild At Heart would be a break from the show's formula in a few ways, but it would also be interesting to hear them talk about it and hear what they think. I don't expect them to do it though, and I'm willing to bet that it's a movie they've already seen and may even like it as much as I do, but it's something I always point to when I hear people say Cage has no good roles. Cage because the great movies he's done outweigh all the terrible ones and even the terrible ones (like Trespass) are often entertaining as hell because of Nic Cage alone (Holy shit, I just realized I'm wearing a Nic Cage shirt as I'm typing this). And I was gonna suggest Bad Lieutenant too but everyone here beat me to it. I think it's a very underappreciated/overlooked movie.

    Only God Forgives????

    Yeah it's gotten terrible terrible reviews, it's my understanding that it was booed at Sundance, and every critic who saw it singled it out as the worst movie there. I still haven't seen it, and I really want to...I want to know why it's so bad (or if it isn't that bad, I love all the Nic Refn movies I've seen). The other day I checked Fandango to see which theaters were showing it, there was only ONE showing it within a 100 MILE RADIUS, It's weird, all the negative feedback it's received only makes me want to see it more and more. I understand why DRIVE was so polarizing, but it seems like everyone says Only God Forgives is terrible, and I'm very curious as to why, because the trailers for it were great and I was really looking forward to seeing it.

    Robot Jox (1989)

    Ha, I had no idea this was a Stuart Gordon movie, interesting.

    Robot Jox (1989)

    Haha, I was just talking about this movie to my friend earlier, and I can't remember what brought it up. I don't remember if I've ever even seen it, I think I just saw it in the video store all the time as a kid and really wanted to see it (other than the giant robots, what caught my eye the most was the word "Jox," which I assumed was a real word. I didn't know what it meant, I just thought it sounded cool). But about a year ago I found it on DVD for like two dollars and bought it for the aforementioned friend because he had told me about how much he loved that movie as a kid. I knew what he was talking about at the time but neither of us could remember the title until I saw it again in a comic book store. I thought it was really crazy how I stumbled upon a movie so obscure when I wasn't even looking for it. So yeah, I agree with this recommendation. It would be fun to hear you guys talk about it for sure.

    Wild at Heart (1990)

    First of all, I just want to say I created an account on here just so I could tell you guys how much I love your podcast. I've been catching up on all the episodes while driving to and from work, and it's so entertaining that I'm not even mad that Jason spoiled Oldboy for me (but to be fair, that movie came out in like '03, and I actually wouldn't have watched it recently if he didn't bring it up, so I guess thanks for that also). But almost every time I listen to your show, I can't get one movie out of my mind: Equilibrium. I don't know why exactly, because although I actually enjoy that movie, I know it's not an objectively "good" movie, and there are plenty of ridiculous things to talk about. The vernacular, the imagery, the "message," the action, the storyline; I have to hear you guys discuss all these things. I want to hear your reactions to a movie that introduces things like "Gun Kata", a form of martial arts taught to the "Tetragrammaton clerics" which incorporates traditional martial arts, geometry, and guns (I can already hear Paul or Jason not being able to say that without laughing.) That's the main reason I think it's a good movie to discuss, even though in my opinion it's certainly not a terrible movie. It's just a ridiculous movie that's actually kind of a unique specimen because it has great performances from Christian Bale, Taye Diggs, Emily Watson, etc. and does work as a whole, but barely. The movie depicts a society where showing any emotion is a crime punishable by death, and possessing anything with artistic merit (even the frame on a mirror in one case I think) can get you locked up and possible burned alive because art causes people to feel things and obviously you don't want to be doing something like feeling emotion around emotion police who ironically seem to be angry most of the time. And I'd suggest getting a guest who has knowledge of martial arts and/or firearms...if you could find an expert on those things who also happens to be funny. I want to add that your live episodes are actually my favorite ones to listen to, I think you guys do a good enough job of describing the visual stuff anyway. My only other recommendation would be a David Lynch movie. I want to hear Jason talk about any of his movies, and I mean LITERALLY any David Lynch movie. To be more specific, I'd say Fire Walk With Me has the most potential because 1.) it's the only one I hate and 2.) Even as a Lynch fan who has seen every Twin Peaks episode, Fire Walk With Me is the only one of his films where I had to ask myself "What the fuck is even happening?" But Wild At Heart is also a good one. A David Lynch movie starring Nic Cage. I can't think of a movie more suitable for your show than that.
