    Great show (listened on my way to work).

    N. Cage can do good work when he forgets he is N. Cage. But yeah . . . I approach his movies with deliberate caution. (I will watch the diapers chase scene in Raising Arizona anytime, anywhere)

    L. DiCaprio these days is usually a big “avoid” sign for me, but not as big as J. Depp.

    That said, DiCaprio was OK in Blood Diamond and a few other movies. Depp was great in Edward Scissorhands and passable in Benny and Joon.

    When I was listening I kept hearing Mike refer to an app that rated movies by percentages. What was the name of the app?
