The year is 2004. Hot off the heels of the enormous popularity of Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney has decided to cast Nicolas Cage as the lead in their new adventure franchise, for some reason. Get back to simpler times, where artifacts of history hold clues to a treasure, and we all just basically act like 9/11 never happened. Check out full epis…
 
It's not often that I get the chance to talk with someone who's been through the kind of drama worthy of a movie. Jason R. Gray returned to the show to talk about medical drama Brain on Fire, and what happened this year when his own brain set "on fire."It was a pleasure and an honor to talk to Jason about what it was like to watch a movie that so c…
 
We dug deep to find the on-screen debut of a young, teenage Nicolas Coppola, in the never-picked-up pilot episode of a musical teen dramedy called The Best of Times. It's got everything you'd expect from a series boasting a full understanding of adolescent America - it's got angst, it's got lust, it's got... Crispin Glover?! Check out rattlingtheca…
 
Our guest this episode is comedian and writer Kevin Avram (Twitter), talking about one of the most unique stand-up specials you've ever seen - Bo Burnham: Make Happy.Dylan and Kevin talked about what it means to make art; what it means to perform, both professionally and in our day-to-day lives; and had two very different reactions coming away from…
 
Jeremy Hobbs is back to talk about one of the most unexpectedly affecting movies we've tackled in a long time. A Ghost Story follows a man who, following an accident, finds himself haunting the home he shared with his wife. It can be a challenge to break into, but ultimately, it's an arresting story about grief, loss, and love.Very special thanks t…
 
We've been talking about what we perceived as the Nicolas Cage action movie phase of the 90's and it turns out, that's not quite what Snake Eyes is. Caroline and Dylan are a house divided as we try to figure out whether Snake Eyes is campy fun or a slog that doesn't know how to do what it's trying to do. Check out full show available here and at ne…
 
I was thrilled to get the chance to speak with podcast host (The Willard Price Adventure Podcast) and perennial dinosaur kid Amy Mugglestone about the immensely successful reborquel Jurassic World.You can find The Willard Price Adventure Podcast on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Twitter, Facebook, Libsyn, and wherever fine podcasts can be found.Head to n…
 
Let's jump back to a classic of the Nic Cage canon, Raising Arizona. Not only does Cage become a live-action cartoon as H.I. McDunnough, matched only by an equally wild performance from Holly Hunter. A correction: Dylan's a dummy and mistakenly said Inside Man when he was actually talking about A Serious Man. And yet that's still not the dumbest th…
 
cw: rape, child sexual assault, self-harmOur guest, Courtney Enlow (of Syfy Fangrrls, Pajiba, and more) brought a movie for discussion that was far tougher than either of us realized. Gerald's Game seems like it's going to be a straight thriller movie about a woman (Carla Gugino), who is trapped in handcuffs after her husband (Bruce Greenwood), die…
 
We joked about it, then we thought about it, then we did it. Welcome to the pilot episode of Rattling the Cage, the podcast where hosts Caroline Diezyn and Dylan Clark-Moore (that's us!) will bring our unique brand of criticism to the works of the one and only Nicolas Cage. Our first movie on the chopping block is 2011's madcap grindhouse flick, Dr…
 
I got to chat with director Jed Brian about his debut horror film, Unlisted Owner. We talked about what it was like to make the movie, the criticisms he's gotten about his realistic characters, and what it's taken to break onto the horror charts with an indie found footage film.Further shownotes at www.netflakes.ca…
 
CW: suicide, sexual assaultI am thrilled to welcome co-host Caroline Diezyn back to the country and back to the podcast.After two scrapped plans to review crime movies in the past, I finally got the chance to talk about a crime drama with Caroline.

Jason came prepared to defend The Guest as a guiltless pleasure thriller made by a horror director who knew exactly what he was doing. Meanwhile, I was on board until the third act completely derailed the whole experience. Give a listen to our conversation and let us know what you thought.More show notes at netflakes.ca…
 
The Movie: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)With guest Chris de Hoog from The Quarter Portion Podcast (site, Twitter, Facebook, and iTunes).For both myself and Chris, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World felt like it was made just for us.

First came Raiders of the Lost Ark. Then came the shot-for-shot remake made by a group of boys looking to stay out of trouble. Then came the documentary about their efforts. Now, the history of the "Greatest Fan Film Ever Made" comes to a conclusion on an obscure Canadian podcast.In our review, we look at everything from the pursuit of dreams and t…
 
For all of its power in bringing drag and queer culture to an increasingly mainstream audience, guest Josh Morrison also wants us to recognize that, at times, RuPaul's Drag Race and its titular queen don't have a flawless track record when it comes to trans equality and gay misogyny.By NetFlakes
 
For all of its memorable gadgets, Back to the Future Part II's future is bleak, pessimistic, and familiar. Even more familiar is the sight of a megalomaniac throwing around his abusive power from his golden tower. We looked at how Back to the Future not only predicted Trump's presidency but also made us forget that we could do any better.…
 
Now that The Force Awakens has had a chance to percolate in our minds for awhile, how exactly does it stand up against the rest of the Star Wars media? We look forward and backward through the saga with an all-star team of guests to predict the enduring legacy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.Full show notes available at http://netflakesblog.wordpre…
 
The Fifth Element is chock-full of tropes and images that paint a grim picture of the role of women in the future. The real trick is to tease out which parts are satire and which parts are just plain sexist.Dylan and Caroline sat down to talk all about gender, sci-fi, and the world-building of The Fifth Element.Full show notes available at http://n…

The last time we got together, I had the chance to speak with Jeremy Hobbs and Victor Liorentas about one of my all-time favourite movies, Jaws. During that conversation, we spent a ton of time talking about things that were not the movie we came to talk about.So, instead of losing those parts of the podcast, and instead of asking people to listen …
