We watched Borat every week for a year. Now we watch other things. The home of Borat Club, Resident Evil Club and more!
Cagolta Club: Pulp Fiction
We've hit Cagolta Club's first major milestone this week, with what is probably Travolta's most iconic role and best performance. Quentin Tarantino may be a real creep, but Pulp Fiction still (mostly) shine thanks to great performances - including from our boy - and a great sense of style.
Cagolta Club: Red Rock West (1993)
Sometimes a movie is just good, is the thing. That's certainly the case this week, as we take a journey down to Wyoming to watch Red Rock West! It's the most perfect TV movie possible, as three of the greats face off in a western noir that your dad definitely would love to find on TNT on a Thursday afternoon!
Cagolta Club: Look Who's Talking (1989)
Sometimes a movie peaks in the first ten minutes. We may have found the ultimate example of that with John Travolta's Look Who's Talking, a dreadful romcom with a baby that does NOT actually talk. Oh well, at least the opening is crazy.
Cagolta Club: Deadfall (1993)
We can scarcely believe it possible, but we've finally found a movie that's almost as bad as Bruco; 1993's Deadfall! It's Cage at his absolute worst in a movie that nobody could give less of a shit about, but hey, at least the wig's great! PLUS we run down the horrible, dreadful Borat news! Pray for us.
Cagolta Club: Staying Alive (1983)
This week we're tackling what could've been one of the funniest movies ever made, if only it wasn't so f*****g boring, Staying Alive! Nothing happens in this movie, but that's okay, because we're back with Tony Manero for some absolutely hilarious Travolta closeups, and more Frank Stallone than you could ever want or need!
Cagolta Club: Honeymoon in Vegas (1992)
What happens when you make a fan-fic film based on Elvis' greatest hits? Apparently you get Honeymoon in Vegas, a movie that not only features no honeymooning, but also barely any Vegas! Instead, Cage goes absolutely wild, Sarah Jessica Parker really wants to conform to gender norms, and it all gets really, really racist when Peter Boyle shows up.
I haven’t seen the movie in full (turned it off because I wasn’t willing to subject myself to it fully about 10 years ago), but sure do listen to these folks talk about it. Quarantine feels like it’s bringing a whole new level to this experience for them. Hope they stay sane enough to carry on to ep. 100 at least! Cheers, boys.
A Delve into the Psychology of 2006 America
A thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening exercise in mental endurance. You won’t find anyone else investigating the cultural juggernaut that was Borat to the same degree as this podcast. The hosts shed a harsh light upon the ugly soul of 2006 America like nobody else can. You think you know Borat, we’ll think again!
