There are soooo many cool references to Nic Cage movies that we could not keep up, even though we have seen many of them, including Croods 2 and Paddington 2….wait…..was he in Paddington 2?…no, but, you gotta watch the movie to find out why I mentioned it. 😉
Great cast (duh) and Nicolas Cage and Din Djarin…..err, Pedro Pascal, are terrific together.
