On this week’s episode of the Media Play News Podcast, hosts Charles Parkman and Charlie Showley discuss the self-aware Nicolas Cage comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, followed by the crime drama streaming series Under the Banner of Heaven, available on Hulu.
The hosts expand on John Latchem’s review of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent by calling back to some of Nicolas Cage’s earlier works and how strange the actor is in real life, making this kind of movie perfectly suited for him.
Following the reviews are an update on the latest box office numbers of the past weekend and which movies are leading. Finally, they report on some updates coming out of Netflix, which appears to be moving full steam ahead to developing an AVOD subscription tier amid further downsizing of its workforce.
