Another movie, #70, or #308 since I started counting, the feature-length pilot for "Night Gallery," which was like a supernatural version of The Twilight Zone, to the point that it's got Serling and everything.
Look, even Spielberg has to start somewhere, and apparently it's with one of the three segments of this thing.
Time to throw in another coffee and see what that does, it's movie #71, or #309 since I started counting, 1934 Best Picture nominee "The Gay Divorcee."
* Not that kind of gay.
* They had to change the title from the original "Gay Divorce" because a divorcee can be gay but a divorce being gay would be Too Scandalous.
* It's Fred and Ginger, innit.
#94, or #333 since I started counting, 2018's "E.M.P 333 Days," which I think is about... a world some time after an EMP hit America?
(Thanks @trini for actually looking for one with 333 in the title.)
@Alexis The oldest Nic Cage movie I've seen is Red Rock West, which is... interesting? Not good? I don't really watch old movies and I think I was sick or something, and was watching...
Alex Navarro on Giant Bomb does weekly Rock Band drumming streams, with a theme each week. One week was, music from Nicholas Cage movies. And the way he described the film made me decide to watch it. (Navarro also used to write for the website Screened, a movie review site).
@The_T Before this, the oldest Cage I'd seen was 2002's Adaptation, which is far more a Charlie Kaufman movie than a Nic Cage movie.
I've really never had a picture of Cage as an actor outside of Cage as the joke he is these days, so now I'm watching everything he's ever done.
@Alexis fwiw, that Giant Bomb Nic Cage video might be worth watching. Alex is passionate about movies.
@The_T Link me to it and I'll check it out. (I'm not at all familiar with the Giant Bomb ecosystem, I don't even know what I'm looking for.)
