The Rock

The Rock

December 13, 2021

The Michael Bay film it's officially OK to like, The Rock benefits from one of the all-time great action movie pairings in Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery, with a little help from Ed Harris as a morally conflicted veteran soldier.

On this week's podcast, we discuss military masturbation, Elton John-themed death scenes, ludicrous gay stereotypes and much more as we break down this ridiculous but entertaining entry into the Cagemas Canon!

On this week's episode, we give our honest reactions to the movie, discuss some of our favourite moments and pitch some overdue sequel ideas...
