The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent – Nicolas Cage against the Machine

Nicolas Cage stars as...himself! In 'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.' Tune in for our review with special guest Clint Worthington.

Special guest Clint Worthington—Founder/EIC of The Spool and host of the Travolta/Cage podcast—joins us for the first time, and trust us, we need a Nick Cage expert for this episode. That’s right, we’re reviewing The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which surprisingly isn’t the Will Ashton biopic stuck in development hell. No, this is a high-concept meta comedy action movie starring Nicolas Cage as a fictionalized version of himself(?), as he gets roped into a crime caper alongside Pedro Pascal. Later in the show we also review The Bad Guys, the first original DreamWorks Animation movie to hit theaters since (checks notes) Abominable!
