Title: undeniably good Nic Cage movies
Post by: zombie #1 on June 29, 2010, 05:52:04 PM
he gets a lot of stick to be honest, and even though I generally like him some of it is warrented (W*ck*r M*n remake  :teddyr:)

but last night I watched Leaving Las Vegas again and I think he's excellent in it.

my favourite performance of his is Wild At Heart though.

those 2, I think have to count... any more?

After all these years I still haven't figured out if he is a good actor or not.

ADAPTATION is his best performance, IMO.  He plays identical twins and you never get confused as to who is who thanks to the different mannerisms he adopts.  I actually quite like Cage; even when he's being hammy he's a lot of fun.

FACE OFF !!!  A big steaming hunk of cinematic prime rib.


And, as a father of kids and a history teacher, NATIONAL TREASURE was just downright fun!

Con Air is a load of fun!  Love the final chase in Las Vegas!

Even though I haven't seen it, I heard that Kick-Ass was pretty good.

Its funny, I was looking at DVDs to rent the other night and saw Bangkok Dangerous and I thought that it looked like 'another crappy Nic Cage movie' then I saw on a nearby shelf Con Air and Face off next to each other, and thought, you know, he's actually not bad.

I have to admit, I quite like him, but he's chosen some stinkers.  Season of the witch looks like a movie that could go either way: I liked the look of the trailer, but am baffled at his role.

Anyways, I'll add to the list of Good Cage movies:  Kick Ass.  Sure it was a supporting role, but he did a great job I thought!

I think you're joking. You're joking, yes?

Whether he's joking or not, The Rock is legitimately cool.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Raising Arizona
Leaving Las Vegas
I haven't seen it, but I've heard pretty good things about Lord of War
Con Air (so bad it's good, I'm convinced it's actually a satire of Michael Bay's work)
I don't know if it's undeniably good, but I liked 8mm

Nic is either the world's worst great actor or the world's greatest lousy actor.

  I think Nic Cage will top his work in Ghost Rider this very summer in Sorceror's Apprentice!

  It's hard to decide if I like him or not because so much of his acting seems gratuitously hammy and over the top but there are times when he does a pretty decent job. I think whoever said the Coens' get the best out of the actors hit it on the head. Maybe he needs a lot of acting guidance.

  That said put me down for Raising Arizona and Con Air.

Thats a very love or haten kinda film.
I enjoyed it, but I know folks who walked out of the cinema when it was first shown.

After all these years I still haven't figured out if he is a good actor or not.

I think he's a good actor who needs a good and controlling director or a role written with him in mind.  Even with bad direction though, I've found him at least entertaining in just about every role.  I like to think of Ghost Rider as the role perfect for him - he was allowed to overact so much that his head literally burst into flames.

He's pretty bad in most but I did like a surprising number of his films including: The Family Man, Raising Arizona, Leaving Las Vegas, Adaptation, Snake Eyes and probably even a few others I can't recall fully off the top of my head. He does have a surprisingly likable everyman quality in some films I'd argue.

Um, I mentioned it.  So did Voltron.  :smile:

I forgot about Moonstruck and Matchstick Men.

I really liked 8MM and Bangkok Dangerous.  I also loved National Treasure and Ghost Rider.

Poor Nic gets a bad rap but he's the best cheeseball actor on the planet.  I love him to bits and I hope the studios keep letting him make movies.

 :cheers:
