62 - Face/Off

Don't just turn your brain off for FACE/OFF - take your brain out and smash it with a mallet. The Travolta/Cage vehicle may rank high on the Tomatometer but it's way down when it comes to IQ tests. Listen to Alex and Julio as they weave in and out of all the plotholes director John Woo scattered throughout the film! Ponder if we really needed a Travolta/Cage overacting competition! Worry for Joan Allen's sanity!

Also, in Real Talk: the results of our first ever poll! Find out what's the consensus when it comes to organizing your Criterion discs! Witness Alex be a sore loser!
