Nic Cage

I needed something to laugh at, badly, and Nicolas Cage provided this morning. 

I pulled up an article titled "Nicolas Cage is still bad to the bone." I was mildly interested. And then I read the first paragraph:

In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Nicolas Cage punches Satan. He punches Satan in the face.

If I'd been drinking something, I would have spit it out, because that made me laugh my ass off.

The rest of the article is rather entertaining, if you find Nicolas Cage entertaining (which I do), so you should give it a read. There are some real, real gems in there regarding his style of acting ("Nouveau Shamanic", whatever the fuck that is), his "power objects," and how "the fear in the eyes of the (film) crew" was "oxygen" to his "forest fire."

By the way, were you aware that Cage was in a film called "Bangkok Dangerous"? Me neither.

And did you see Cage on SNL on Saturday, side-by-side with Andy Samberg, who was also dressed as Nicolas Cage? It was pretty entertaining. They said the new "Ghost Rider" has two key qualities of a Nic Cage action film.

1. All the dialogue is either whispered or screamed.

2. Everything in the movie is on fire.

So true. So, so true.

Here's two minutes of clips from "Wicker Man," in which he screams a lot and punches the shit out of some threatening women. Hahahhaha....


Happy Friday. Let's have a great weekend.

  1. Y'know, within my group of acquaintances, Nic Cage tends to get a lot of flack... but I'm not ashamed to admit that I rather enjoy the man as an actor. One of my favorite movies with him is The Weather Man...

    Plus, he has owned at least two castles, and a dinosaur skull of a Tarbosaurus.

  2. He's definitely been in a few good movies! Nowadays he's in a lot of crap but some of his older stuff holds up well.

  3. I love Valley Girl, one of my all time favorites, an oldie, probably well before your time!
