BMFcast160 – Look Who’s Taken Too

By

Stolen (2012) is our first official Nic Cage movie in a very long while. Too long, in fact! How did we let this happen? HOW DID WE LET THIS HAPPEN?! Look, if you’ve seen Taken, you’ve seen this movie only done better.

Second half we talk random movies including Looper, The Hunger Games and Apollo 18. Plus, listener correspondence and more. Enjoy!

    I already mentioned it to you guys on Twitter (and you guys did respond) but indeed, I remembered that there was the Nic Cage film Firebirds reviewed for your third anniversary episode, Episode 115. Admittedly, that movie isn’t the best and while I saw it a few years ago, the only parts I remember were the real wacky moments, such as Nic Cage yelling and speaking like he’s doing the opening to Daft Punk’s Technologic, and him being blindfolded by women’s panties; still, this is the third movie done by the crew and not the second.

    I was one of the few who saw Apollo 18 on the big screen and it wasn’t awesome, but it was still alright and believe me, most places I go to, when that movie is talked about, there’s downright hatred and disgust for it. I am surprised as I did not think it was that bad.

    I like del Toro but I didn’t care much for Hellboy 2. The first one was a fun great movie the second the CGI didn’t look so great and Hellboy’s head was too big. Plus the babies are eh, really? But on his Spanish stuff, the Orphanage is great but Pan’s Labyrinth didn’t deliver on what it so badly wanted to at the end. What makes del Toro interesting to me is he has a some what unique look to his movies and a certain pedigree of writing he delivers. And its weird because I don’t think his writing is great, but it always has something interesting in it. I’m actually just kind of expecting Pacific Rim to be a movie with robots punching monsters in it and as long as that happens one time, everything else is icing.

    Also funny story, a few years back Mike Mignola did a panel at DragonCon on Hellboy and came off to me as pretty annoyed del Toro didn’t consult him at all for the story on Hellboy 2.
