Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) faced his most distressing challenge yet on Sunday’s episode: living in a safe house with Captain Holt’s husband Kevin (Marc Evan Jackson) for weeks without access to the internet or cable. Fortunately, Jake owns all of the movies starring Nicholas Cage – “only the greatest, most compelling actor of all time” – on DVD.

That doesn’t stop Jake from trying though, and the following includes some of the descriptions he uses to entice Kevin, who eventually gives in.

David Lynch's Wild at Heart (1990) is showing from February 14 - March 16, 2018 in many countries around the world. This is a revised English translation of an article originally published by Seance magazine, July 24, 2014.Every genuinely shamanic séance ends as a spectacle unequaled in the world of daily experience. The fire-tricks, the “miracle” of the rope-trick or mango-trick type, the exhibition of magical feats, reveal another world—the fabulous world of the gods and magicians, the world in which everything seems possible… where the “laws of nature” are abolished and a certain superhuman “freedom” is exemplified and made dazzlingly present.—Mircea Eliade, Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of EcstasyThe snakeskin jacket that Sailor, the protagonist of Wild at Heart (1990), wears at all times as (in his own words) a symbol of his individuality and belief in personal freedom came from Nicolas Cage’s own wardrobe.

Meryl Streep in ‘Postcards from the Edge’: A look back at her ninth Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 9 of the 21-part Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

By 1989, Meryl Streep had graced the silver screen in 15 motion pictures.

So, it was about time that Streep at last scored a leading role in a successful comedy.

She-Devil” (1989) found Streep in the broadest, loosest form of her career. Portraying flamboyant romantic novelist Mary Fisher, opposite Roseanne Barr, Streep herself garnered positive notices but the picture flopped even harder than “Heartburn,” spending one week in the box office top 10.

Her follow-up to “She-Devil” had shades of “Heartburn” on paper.
