So apparently WGBH in Boston holds a televised high school quiz show, hosted by radio personality Billy Costa. During Brookline High School’s match-up against Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School, which airs tomorrow, host Costa asks the Brookline team their favorite movie. It’s a question they must have been prepped on beforehand, because they all chose different Nic Cage films. Are we being ironic in loving the novelty value of Nic Cage movies? (*sigh*) I don’t even know anymore. Anyway, between the Nic Cage love, the trivia, and the plaid shirt theme, I think it’s safe to say that me and these dudes could hang. Today they are all honorary FilmDrunkards.
Probably my favorite answer was the second guy, Jonathan, who looks and sounds not unlike a young Quentin Tarantino, describing his choice of Face/Off.
“Nic Cage, he’s just really in his element. He switches faces.”
That should be the DVR and Netflix review for Face/Off, from now until forever.
