Episode 90

“A peach. I could eat a peach for hours.”

This time, Tom is heading back to 1997 to teach Morgan all about the ridiculous-yet-brilliant John Woo action film, Face/Off. And as Johnny Depp discovered, it’s not an ice hockey movie.

We delve into the madness of the John Travolta and Nicolas Cage vehicle, and how it was originally meant to be set in the future in the style of Demolition Man.

In the episode, we ponder the cosmetic dilemmas regarding doing such a body swap in real life (do you keep the abs? What about the penis?), we find out the other pairs of actors who almost took it on, and look ahead to an upcoming sequel.

In what is what Morgan described as one of our silliest episodes yet, we also hear some cracking Harrison Ford and Al Pacino impressions and discover real-life procedures that blow our minds.

Make sure to check out previous movie-based episodes, including other action favourites such as Die HardLicence to Kill and Predator.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
