    I am intrigued by that murder parent movie, and I like Nic Cage, and think he’s very good at being unhinged but

    I dunno, I actually don’t think Cage is very good at being intimidating. So I’m a little skeptical about a horror movie with him as the antagonist, even if it is a horror-comedy

    he plays the role as a dude just absolutely crushed by the reality of his unfulfilled mid-life existence so it actually really, really works. he fucking hates his life so much.

    it also is not a horror comedy at all.

    the surprise for me was how intimidating and unhinged selma blair got.

    Isn't this the exact same story as 1? Is this just a remake that couldn't afford Samuel L. Jackson and LL Cool J?

    my capacity for enjoying nic cage went a lot higher after someone pointed out to me that he's not overacting, because that's something you do on accident

    what nic cage does is a deliberate, intentional choice

    Paul Constant calls it mega-acting, which seems about right

    So is Mom and Dad a straight up horror flick with maybe some dark humor instead of a horror comedy?

    Guys, I need some tactical espionage pickmeup.

    I'm replaying Metal Gear and we're never getting another. Kojima is 90% made of movies, so recommend some I may not have seen.

    I have seen:

    Escape from New York
    Guns of Navarone
    Die Hard
    North by Northwest
    James Bond (a lot of em)
    Rambo
    Peacemaker
    Executive Decsion

    Oceans Eleven isn't a spy movie but has lots of slick, cool moments.

    You could also watch the Bourne movies,

    Dr. Strangelove, The Great Escape, and honestly the show 24 are all good Metal Gear-esque touchstones that all hit very different aspects of the series

    I don't know anything about Metal Gear, but The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was the best spy movie of the past several years.

    Also, I don't know, The Losers maybe?

    If you're looking for military spy/covert ops movies Where Eagles Dare is the first glaring omission from that list that comes to mind. Richard Burton & Clint Eastwood sneak into a nazi castle in the alps, it and Guns of Navarone are like the two best movies in that style I can thing of right now. Force 10 from Navarone is the squeal to Guns but not as good as either of those from what I remember

    There are really good spy movies out there. "Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy", "Three Days of the Condor", "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold", "Argo", "The Eye of the Needle", etc. But the "tactical espionage" you're thinking of would be more like Mission Impossible, Bourne series, James Bond, etc that you already know.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    The original title was Tinker, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Soldier, Spy but it tested poorly with the audience when they realized JTT wasn't in the movie.

    To be fair, the original decision was because he wasn't born when the movie was made.

    Yo @manwiththemachinegun, this is going to sound a little crazy but you should definitely watch Speed.

    Parts of the soundtrack sound exactly like Metal Gear Solid.

    it is! there are very few jokey bits in it.

    it's super over the top, but it's played completely straight

    Agreed, though I think of it more as proto-Wolfenstein. :+1:

    They don't have to have all Rambo levels of action. Peacemaker which I find incredibly underrated has only like, two major action sequences and the rest is intel work.

    I don't like the Bourne series, Damon is incredibly flat in those for me.

    24 was the bomb. And I hate we'll never get a movie for one last Jack Bauer rampage.

    Ooooooh! @manwiththemachinegun, you should also watch Michael Bay's the Rock.

    The opening scene (and general plot) is basically right out of a MGS game.

    I love finally realizing that Keanu goddamn Reeves quietly became my favorite action movie star. It took awhile, but it sunk in just how many different action movies he's done that are in my favorites column.

    you could watch lockout aka space jail if you want to see an okay-enough space rip-off escape from New York

    i might also say that total recall shares some sensibilities with mgs

    The opening scene of Winter Soldier is MGS, but how I play MGS3-V (ie it counts as stealth if there's nobody conscious or alive to tell anyone else I was there).
