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.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

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!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
