Haha! WTF? I got this picture HERE.
I’m going to be CRUCIFIED for this list! So, in the spirit of Good Friday… Let’s do this. 😉
The fabulous Abbi of Where The Wild Things Are posted her Top Ten Nicolas Cage Roles (list HERE) and I was all “I don’t really like Nicolas Cage”. Then of course Eric of The IPC came by and was all “You suck! I hate you! I worship Nicolas Cage! Our friendship is OVER!”. Then Abbi said I should do my own Top Ten. So, screw it – I have! Remember I’m not a huge Cage fan and my list is my favorite movies he’s been, not my favorite roles of his. I don’t hate him – I just don’t exactly love him. Jesus – I’m going to get in more trouble over this list than I did for leaving Saving Private Ryan off My Top Ten Steven Spielberg Movies (a list I did HERE for the lovely Zoe of The Sporadic Chronicles Of A Beginner Blogger).
Here we go….
My Top Ten Nicolas Cage Movies (counting down from ten) *going into hiding now*
10. The Croods

7. Matchstick Men
6. Leaving Las Vegas
5. City Of Angels

2. Con Air
1. Fast Times At Ridgemont High
(hahaha! yes, I know – he’s barely even IN my number one choice… sorry!)
Honeymoon In Vegas
The Family Man
National Treasure: Book Of Secrets
Peggy Sue Got Married
Werewolf Women Of The SS 😉
Not Seen and/or Saw Part Of But Don’t Remember Much: *ducks*

Drive Angry (but Amber Heard is hot)
Not Sure How I Feel About:
Gone In Sixty Seconds
There was a spectacular episode of ‘community’ (season 5, episode 2) where a workshop was offered at the community college, “Nicolas Cage: Good or Bad?”
The character Abed obsesses over the question and it leads to a meltdown of Cage impressions in class:
The clip doesn’t do it justice as it goes on way longer – check out the episode if you get a chance as it really is a tough question: Nic Cage, good or bad?!
That sounds interesting! I’ve always wondered about that show… I’ve actually never seen it. But I like the sound of the episode. : )
Haha! Watched the clip now. Now I want to see the whole thing. : )
It’s brilliant – glad you enjoyed!
I’ve seen that episode – I almost died with laughter it was that good 😀
also not a really big Cage fan, but I think I like him in a few more than you. I LOVED Family Man and Honeymoon in Vegas and thought that Knowing and Snake eyes had great ideas, but terrible implementation 😦
Nice list regardless what Eric says. That wanker should bugger himself! 🙂
Someone needs to give Rob a good Rogering.
Or is it…
Family Man & Honeymoon In Vegas are both ones I know I liked at the time but can’t remember much now – I should rewatch. : ) lol!!! Thanks! Yeah – Eric can go…. Do that! Especially as he’s broken up with me now. ; )
I don’t even know what this means but now I’m all pissed and sad again.
I don’t know – you’ll have to ask Rob. He’s the expert on British slang. ; ) I thought we’d snogged & made up??
I doubt you will get as much flak as you did for skipping Saving Private Ryan… 😉 Cool list!
Thanks! : ) lol – So far, so good. Except Eric has dumped me again… ; )
I saw that… What a public spectacle lol!
I thought we’d gotten everything patched up and I come check this out and….. HUMPH!!!!!!!!
Great choices and thanks, as always for the kind words. Also that first picture is AMAZING (and creepy).
Thanks. : ) I know my choices are probably a bit odd to most! But I’ve not seen a lot of his biggest ones. Lol – I KNOW! Amazingly creepy. I love it. : )
Peggy Sue Got Married was great as well as Moonstruck. I will always defend Nicolas Cage. He’s a demi-god in my book.
I am breaking up with CPD and going to ask you to go steady. We can go watch Cage movies together.
Great! I have no plans for today. I feel like ‘The Rock’. Will you bring the beer?
YEP!! And some Tequila!
Hey! The Rock is in my top five! Can I not come along?!?!?
Absolutely. More the merrier. Just bring the salt.
You’ll come back to me….
I remember thinking Peggy Sue was pretty damn good. : ) Like a lot of older Cage stuff, though, I don’t remember it that well now so couldn’t put it in the top ten. I’ve only seen bits & pieces of Moonstruck. I know a lot of people love Cage… He’s just never really worked for me. ; ) He’s okay, though! : )
You really need to see Raising Arizona! And I think Snake Eyes is underrated.
Well, I HAVE seen both. Don’t tell Eric but I think I’ve seen all of Raising Arizona a few times on TV. It just never worked for me. And I can’t really remember Snake Eyes – just that I didn’t like it much. I know – I’m a weirdo… ; )
“Don’t tell Eric but I think I’ve seen all of Raising Arizona a few times on TV. It just never worked for me. ”
The honeymoon is over….
Are we breaking up again? Wait – had we gotten back together yet? I lose track! ; )
I actually like Nicolas Cage but I haven’t seen about half the movies you picked because they sounded boring. I saw Adaptation and hated it, was bored for almost all of it. It’s been so long I barely even remember Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I never saw 5, 6, or 7. The Croods was really cute. I didn’t realize he did one of the voices. 9 and 3 were okay. The Rock and Con Air were the best ones on the list. But you have to ignore his bad accent.
Lol – I thought people would moan about Con Air being so high! I really like that one. It’s silly but fun. The Rock is great too. : ) Fast Times is an 80s classic! Worth a rewatch if you don’t remember it that well. : )
I made a “tsk” sound upon seeing #1. Love It Could Happen to You & National Treasure, though.
What’s wrong with my number one???? ; ) Hey – someone who likes It Could Happen To You! I thought people would be like “WTF?” but I think not many have even seen it. It’s a great movie! : )
Oh, how is Ghost Rider 2 not on here? Gone in 60 Seconds is also great.
Well, I’ve not even seen the first one so I’ve not exactly seen the second either… ; ) Aren’t they meant to be shit?? I saw 60 Seconds but don’t remember it AT ALL. God I have a terrible memory. (Or I just watch too much stuff. Yeah, that’s it…)
You’re saying he has 10 good movies??? I call BS on the whole premise of this post! 🙂
Lol!!! I like this reply…. : )
Nicolas Cage is amazing! So very bad and so very good at the same time. He is prolific with an impressive body of work. I think I’m going to have to do my own top 10, I’m feeling inspired.
Oh, and I have a gift for you:
Lol! That was funny! Don’t think I’ve seen half of those in the clip. ; ) DO IT! Do a top ten! That would be cool. Mine sucks and I know it. Lol. It’s the “not seen” ones I expected to be in more trouble for… ; )
Most articles always forget about Kiss of Death. Cage is brilliant as Little Jr Brown. I would love to see a remake: 20 years later Jr gets out of prison, and has to learn how to survive without falling back to his old ways. That could be a great movie.
Ooops, not a remake. I guess it would be a continuation.
Hmm – I’ve never even heard of that one! Is it a potential top ten? ; ) I don’t exactly love some that are on my list…
Nicholas Cage has made some great films. I love his voice which reminds me of James Stewart an even better actor. I would add face off to the top 10 list.
I should rewatch Face/Off – been a long time since I’ve seen it. I know most people do love Cage – I just don’t QUITE “get” him. ; ) Do love James Stewart, though! One of my favorite actors. : )
James Stewart is the best 🙂
Controversial choices haha. Family Man would be in mine. He has done so many films.
Lol – I know… I haven’t gotten in TOO much trouble for my weird list, at least. ; ) I really liked Family Man but now don’t remember it well so just put it as an honorable mention. Should watch it again. : )
Once you’ve seen Raising Arizona, Bringing Out The Dead and Wild At Heart your Top 10 will change I guarantee you.
Eric! Is that how you end your Easter prayers? ; )
All of em…!!
Well…. I HAVE seen Raising Arizona in bits & pieces over the years. I think it’s unlikely to make my top ten anyway. And a Scorsese & a Lynch film? Not so sure about those making it either. ; ) But I’d watch the Scorsese one someday. : )

I agree with the number 1 too, I think I posted it that as a comment on someone’s list. No one else remembers that!!! Woo hooo ! Nic Cage flipping burgers and hugging ponies great post.
Lol! Yay! Someone who agrees that Fast Times At Ridgemont High is Nic Cage’s best movie! Because it totally is. ; )
Someone should STOP Nic Cage from making movies. For the love of all that’s Holy, please, make him stop. A long time ago he made one or two decent films but not for the past twenty years. Everytime I find out he has a new film coming out… its time to be afraid, VERY afraid.
