National Treasure (2004) – Jon Turteltaub

Sometimes you just want fluff. And honestly, who doesn’t like the idea of a secret history shrouded in clues and mysteries all around in the everyday, and the history of a country?

Willy’s Wonderland (2021) – Kevin Lewis

Silly, goofy, and wonderfully over-the-top, the horror film, Willy’s Wonderland, is just a romp that doesn’t take itself, or the world it exists in very seriously, and it’s star, Nicholas Cage, doesn’t say a word through the entire film.

Wild at Heart (1990) – David Lynch

  The final road movie from my viewing of Easy Rider for the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book, is this classic David Lynch film, that I hadn’t seen in years, and was very much looking forward to seeing again. Sailor (Nicholas Cage) is feverishly in love with Lula (Laura Dern, who is…
