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: Adaptation (2002)
We're bringing some controversial opinions to the table this week, as we tackle Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze's Adaptation! Nic Cage is as good as ever, but we just can't escape the feeling that we'd rather be following Donny than Charlie. Please don't get mad at us.
Cagolta Club: Swordfish (2001)
What if John Travolta made you hack the US government while a goon hold a gun to your head and you got a b*****b? Then you'd probably be Hugh Jackman in Swordfish, Dominic Sena's *other* masterpiece!
Cagolta Club: Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000)
It's all about family this week, as we boost some cars, deal with the realities of naming a character Freb, marvel at bizarre set design, contrived heroin subplots and whatever that thing is on Angelina Jolie's head - it's Gone in Sixty Seconds, and it whips.
Cagolta Club: Battlefield Earth (2000)
We've got the inscrutable Travolta passion project that is L. Ron Hubbard's Battlefield Earth this week, and hoo boy, this one's a doozy. Bizarre camerawork, Korn meets Tom of Finland costuming, Forest Whitaker being debased by the movie, and for some reason Barry Pepper in a leading role. Folks, the vibes are rancid.
Cagolta Club: Snake Eyes (1998)
We've got yet another BDP classic this week, as we tackle 1998's Snake Eyes! Cage brings the fire as corrupt cop Ricky, and while De Palma hits us with all his usual flair, it's hard not to second guess some of the messages being thrown out by an otherwise fine movie.
Cagolta Club: Face/Off (1997)
It's finally here. After six months worth of build, Cage and Travolta finally clash in John Woo's magnum opus - Face/Off. Tremendous overacting on both men's parts, an absolutely wild horny pin-up bomb, bizarre parenting decisions and more!
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!
