  3. National Treasure
    The Rock (admittedly more due to the presence of Sean Connery)
    Fast Times at Ridgemont High (also not due to his presence)
    The Cotton Club (ditto)
    Raising Arizona
    Leaving Las Vegas

    And he was a Producer on Shadow of the Vampire

  5. Dammit I was ninja'd. :downer:
     
  6. Con-Air was alright despite Cage's awful attempt at a Southern accent.....at least for about 3/5 of the movie.

    And it did have Danny Trejo and John Malkovich in it.

    Joe

  10. And even though I started it by mentioning Malkovich and Trejo, we cannot ignore Steve Buscemi's Garland Greene.

    "I drove through six States wearing one lady's head as a hat."

    If you spend more than a couple of minutes thinking about the character, he really is one of the more disturbing characters in what is essentially a "popcorn" movie.

  11. The Rock

    Edit - Notice WK already mentioned The Rock... I really can't think of too many good ones besides The Rock, Con-Air, OH WAIT... noone mentioned Face-Off yet.. or the National Treausre films.
     
  12. How can no one mention Face-Off, one of the greatest action/thrillers ever (in my humble opinion, of course)?

  13. Not just that, but how eloquent he spoke. At the time, villains were uneducated murderers with no class.
    Cyrus Grissom was articulate, smart and hated rapists. He didn't have henchman, only means to an end
    I cringe seeing movies featuring criminals who have a beat and a half of education.... it doesn't works, folks.

  17. I hear you... it was slightly (sarcasm) unbelievable lol But I'm a sucker for those types of films.. a mixture of action, adventure, history, and intrigue. I had to overlook the breaking into the oval office and kidnapping the president parts and just try to forget them.. once they were forgotten it wasn't so bad lol

  18. I just think it can't be that good of a movie when not even Ed Harris can save it.

    :dawg:

  19. Cage is a victim of his own hype. He believes he can do any movie, when he can't just do any movie.
    It took thirty years for Robert De Niro to even believe he could do comedy... yet not even De Niro does true action films.
    Most actors know their limits and what they shouldn't take (case in point: Will Smith declined Matrix), but not Cage.

    Nicolas Cage thinks he can take any role and make it work. Even John Travolta thinks thats too much.
    If Nick Cage thought he could get away with playing an infant on the live screen, he would do it.

  20. I think Face Off was the only movie I'd rate as "good" that he starred in.
    I am picky though.
