The Nicolas Cage Outburst

Everytime I see a Nicolas Cage movie, why does he always has to have an outburst in his dialoge. He'll be talking normally and then bam! an outburst. Is he trying to make it his trademark or something, if so, its annoying and stupid. Anyway, just had to rant.

I liked his outbursts in "Honeymoon in Vegas" when he encounters the "wise man"... "Wise man? He lives in A SHACK!!!!"

Other than that, I guess his outbursts are done in character and it doesn't bother me.

However, the trademark for irrelevant outbursts belongs to this guy:

Al Pacino does quite a bit as well, sometimes they're annoying, but he does it better than Nicolas Cage I think.

I don't mind the outbursts. At least these actors show some life in them.

Actually, I was talking to a friend of mine about how Gene Wilder always has a freaked out screaming dialogue in every movie he's ever done.

Nick Nolte:

The "i'm frustrated and i'm fed up with this" scene in pretty much all his movies.

My favorite Nick Cage outburst: In The Rock

"But how, in the name of Zeus's BUTTHOLE, did you get out of your cell? I only ask because it might prove useful in our current situation MAYBE!"

I'll have to agree that Gene Wilder does it every movie(I think).

It's quirky but not annoying.

This thread is pure hilarity. Ha ha Nick Nolte.

The bit with the phone, where his frustration is really rising, is classic.

"Is it 'Ka-pa-ah-AH' or 'Ka-pa-ah-ah-AH'?!?"

Dude, you and I are on the exact same sentence, paragraph, chapter of the same exact book. That was the funniest line of the whole friggin' movie. For anyone that has visited any of the Hawaiian islands, you know exactly what he's pissed off about.

I don't mind actors outbursting, but with Nicolas Cage, its getting quite old, everytime I see one of his movies, its like "oh here he goes again"

Re: The Nicolas Cage Outburst

There was an interesting article about his choice of movie roles

Why is Nicolas Cage a movie star? And why do we care?

The answer, in part, is that Cage -- whose latest, "Knowing," opened Friday -- won an Oscar in 1996 for playing a suicidal alcoholic in "Leaving Las Vegas," a gritty, brutal, honest movie, wonderfully acted (by both Cage and Elisabeth Shue) and which confirmed what a lot of people had long believed: that Cage was the most interesting actor in American movies.

Does the average moviegoer care how much money Nicolas Cage makes? Probably more than he or she should; given the celebrity-besotted culture we live in, it's inevitable. But it seems the unavoidable conclusion that Cage, once held up as an example of the intrepid artistic impulse, has become something of the poster boy for blind ambition, cynical role selection, questionable judgment and, worst of all, humorlessness:


If Cage were replaced tomorrow by Ben Stiller, we'd get all of the above plus a couple of laughs. Instead, we have an actor who used to be able to do something remarkable -- overcome a lack of native charm by embracing his inner outsider, creating affectionate portraits of unlikely heroes, and soldiering on despite a seemingly unmerciful universe. It may not pay as well. But that's a Nic Cage we could use.

I read somewhere that Sean Penn ended his friendship with Cage over his film choices.

If true, that's hilarious. Hell, even if it isn't true, it's still funny.
