Favorite Nicholas Cage film



Whats your favorite Nicholas Cage film? I'm a huge fan, so it hard for me to pick one. I think Adaptation is probably my favorite. Heard hes also starring in a new dark comedy which is similar to Adaptation called The Weatherman.

Cage is my fave actor, and I'm an action film junkie. Obviously my favorite movie of all time would be "The Rock".

An egregiously underrated and overlooked movie.

Absolutely loathe Nic Cage, & I'm an action film junky as well, which is why I hate him so much, he just sucks in action movies.

For the sake of the thread Wild At Heart would be my favorite film of his, but not b/c of him. I'm a huge Lynch fan.

The Rock is one of my favorite movies. I have had many discussions with hubby since then about it and he hated it. I think that is the 1st movie we disagreed on.

I can tell you this much, I thought SNAKE EYES was one of the worst movies I have ever seen with 8MM not to far behind.

My fav? I guess Family Man

I thought there were plot holes in Matchstick Men and Face-Off. IMO
