TGB Episode 50: Going Full Cage! (Guest: Critic Simon Abrams)
by Tim Buel
February 23, 2011
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, our 50th!, Tim and Jeremy are joined by critic Simon Abrams of The L Magazine and The A.V. Club to go over their latest Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, the first trailer for sci-fi horror film Apollo 18 and the new theatrical trailer for Marvel's Thor, give feedback to listener voicemail and much more! The main topic of the night was the life and times of Nicolas Cage (in honor of Drive Angry 3D hitting theaters Friday). The guys talk over some of the best and worst of Cage's lustrous filmography and talk over the man's great legacy and ever awesome hair styles.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Nicolas Cage is amazing! Yeah sure he does some shitty movies but the man is highly entertaining...just wanted to mention that someone like Samuel L. Jackson does a lot of things similar to Nic Cage but at the same time they are very different in their delivery. They both do a lot of movies, always yelling, different unique looks every time just wanted to see what you thought about that comparison. Why not throw Gary Oldman in there too. But someone like Kevin Bacon or Keanu Reeves who both do a lot of movies always looks the same while they play the exact same character every time.
