  • This video makes me wanna see the parallel universe where Nick Cage ACTUALLY GOT TO PLAY WOLVERINE. Both the actual films and how differently pop culture developed because of them.

  • Hey wisecrack, I've been interested in the game Death Stranding. I'm looking at the moral/like system and how it's suppose to connect players through "helping each other" and sure it's there but does it actually hit the mark? I look back at Nier automata and see huge similarities between the games fundamentals. Anyways I would like to see a deep or dumb on death stranding or some kind of deep dive in the game.

  • Damn I respect Wisecrack content but its funny how America is going so downhill that artists needs to survive by advertising trash companies that accelerate its incoming crisis. Upstart was created to keep people (that are already in the mud because of their stuandets debts or medical issues not covered by any helthcare program) consuming. And Wisecrack must have a huge chunk of demographic in the likes of smart young freshly graduated adults...

His performance from one movie wouldn't work for another, and he deserves credit for not fucking that up? Don't get me wrong, he's a fine actor, but I don't think he should have this level of praise heaped onto him!

  • The best part about Mandy is when after watching it you realise you have genuinely formed the thought 'I would not have been able to take this film seriously without Nick Cage making the main role so believable'. I mean, the world is so profoundly surreal and extravagant that a normal real-world performance would have felt incredibly out of place, and any other weapons-grade actor would have fucked it up by turning it into ham. His ability to act just SO MUCH, but present it as just a normal thing to be doing, was perfect for offering a person who feels like they fit with the world of the movie, while still feeling like a grounded character the audience is capable of following.

  • I dont get your guys fascination with cage. His performances usually break the tone of movies and feel weird and out of place, and his accents suck. So he can go for some "high art" all he wants but it doesnt change the fact that his performances still sucks. You can go to as many art history classes as you want but it wont make your painting skills not shit. I mean he's not in fuckin Black Dynamite or Kill Bill where campey over the top acting is being called for, he's in regular ass movies and than he overacts in them. Cage is a name and a face, nothing more, no one hires him for his fucking acting, his acting is a joke. It doesnt matter how complex and layered the joke is, it's still out of place and if you need to explain it for it to be funny than its not good either. Mandy is probably the only movie he's been in where he actually fits in, most of the time he's just doing some over the top artsy shit in a regular movie. Vampire Kiss only works because the film just ended up revolving around his wackiness. I bet the director was like "well I guess this is the movie I'm making now"
