New to View: The MacGuffins on Cage and film chat

Happy Birthday, Nicolas Cage! In honor of this auspicious occasion and the timely release of his latest film SEASON OF THE WITCH, Spencer and John from the MacGuffin Podcast reflect on the Razzie nominated/Oscar winning actor's career, from his stoner buddy role in FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, on through the ups (RED ROCK WEST, WILD AT HEART, RAISING ARIZONA, LEAVING LAS VEGAS, ADAPTATION), and lows (KISS OF DEATH, GHOST RIDER, CITY OF ANGELS, and, sorry fellas, CON AIR). We here at Scarecrow always refer to local film critic Vern for reflection on all things Nic Cage. Viva MEGA-ACTING! Moving on, Spencer and John talk about their favorite DVD commentary tracks. They recommend those by David Fincher, Kevin Smith, Frank Darabont, Sam Mendes, Steven Soderbergh, and Robert Rodriguez, who also includes the cool "Ten Minute" educational extras on his DVDs. We have both of their DVD Picks of The Week available for rent & sale:
