Episode 16: Con Air, or The Bruckheimer Redemption

Pull on your sweatiest tank top and let the wind lift your long prison locks as we take off on Con Air. Is the length of Nicolas Cage’s sideburns an accurate barometer for his character’s craziness in a given film? Did John Cusack borrow his suit from David Byrne for this? Is Helen alone in finding Steve Buscemi supremely attractive? Why didn’t Trisha Yearwood’s How Do I Live come on every time John Malkovich and Nic Cage were on screen together? And who leaves their kid in an abandoned plane graveyard?? We don’t have any answers for you, but plenty of explosions.
