The Wicker Man (2006)
Hoooo boy. After our clue in the last episode, did you guess that we’d be doing Nicholas Cage’s remake of The Wicker Man this week? This heavily-memed, notoriously bad remake of an absolute classic genre-bending 1973 film is so full of terrible dialogue, hammy acting, head-scratching plot holes, and just plain dumb subject matter that it actually feels more like a mockery of the original than an homage. So naturally, we enjoyed talking about it much more than we enjoyed watching it.
For heaven’s sake, if you’ve never seen the original (which we’ve already gushed over in a previous episode), watch it BEFORE you take this one on – if you even bother checking this one out at all. We certainly wouldn’t recommend it. But anyway, enjoy the conversation!
