is the worst actor of the past fifty years.
Prove me wrong.
can only play one role; Nic Cage!
Looks pretty dire.
Who knows? Who cares? Hold on- what numbers?
if you imagine the character he plays is actually Nicolas Cage. He gets a lot of stuff thrown at him.
"The first time I was struck with something, a chicken breast from Kenny Rogers. I was standing next to a garbage pail. I thought it might've been an accident, that they were throwing it out. The second time, it hit me square on the chin, a soft taco. Then, pop. A falafel. McNuggets. Always fast food. Fast food. Shit people would rather throw out than finish. It's easy. It tastes all right, but it doesn't really provide you any nourishment
[pause] I'm fast food."
"The other thing that gets to people, that leads to pies, I guess are these catch phrases we're required to use to single the program out. It gets under people's skin. Spritz Nipper. But the whole thing about all of it, all the getting hit with stuff, the whole thing is, who gets hit with a fucking pie, anyway? Did anyone ever throw a pie at Thomas Jefferson? Or Buzz Aldrin? I doubt it. But this is like the ninth time I got...
[pause] Clowns get hit with pies."
the cage is awesome.
so the character suits him. like in city of angels.
I think he probably took up archery in real life too
so much worse
he was good in that
i guess he acted it well...but his character was completely laughable.
and shit of course ConAir he was great in that too, i think thats about it though. He is comparable to keanu reeves id say in that he is always the same.
that's the question
"i wish i had two dicks"
Nic Cage's CV
7 reasons not to see his new movie, Knowing
* The Guardian, Saturday 21 March 2009
* Article history
• The Rock (1996) Utterly absurd
• Snake Eyes (1998) Ooooh! Look at my big, long tracking shot!
• Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001) What was going on with that accent?
• Lord Of War (2005) The filmic equivalent of being lectured for 90 minutes that shooting people is bad.
• The Wicker Man (2006) Possibly the worst film of all time as Nic is chased by a girl in a teddy bear outfit and sacrificed.
• Ghost Rider (2007) You can cover up a lot with a toupee, but you can't perform miracles.
• Next (2007). If you could really see into the future, you'd have known not to make this. See also National Treasure, National Treasure: The Book Of Secrets, Gone In 60 Seconds, World Trade Center, Bangkok Dangerous.
• Knowing is out Wed 25
Leaving Las Vegas.
it completely realigned my opinion of him. He played that part well...
Not the bees!! Naarghhh!!!
HOWD IT GET BURNT HOWD IT GET BURNT HOWD IT GET BURRRNTTT!??
and laughed really really hard at that, people looked at me
The Rock does not deserve to be on that list, its a decent action movie.
some of his best work
it clearly states it's from this weeks Guardian Guide.
And you just can't count.
The Rock is good but only because of John Spencer and Sean Connery.
was incredible, his karate kicks etc
I found it hilarious
Wild at Heart
Are two reasons why you're wrong. He's great in both of those.
Having said that, I saw 30 seconds of Captain Correlli's Mandarin last night and had to turn it off. NC was throwing his arms around whilst loads of soliders were singing.
Wild At Heart is fuckin top
he's only good when he plays really odd, screwed up roles, e.g. these two and the aforementioned leaving las vegas - all completely blinding performances. but he cannot play the straight guy to save his life. it's a weird one.
film i've ever seen.i put it top of my list for atp tv at vs fans!
"Nic found, however, he wasn't as keen on the clubbing life as he'd once been. Instead of going at it full on, he found he'd rather talk than dance--and dance floor fights were certainly out of the question. During one night out Nic was challenged in a night club by one of Kristen's ex-boyfriends. Nic was out with Julian Lennon when he was suddenly struck in the face. Looking up he saw Guy Oseary--later to become the youthful president of Maverick Records, the label Madonna records for. At first he thought Oseary was playing a practical joke, but then he realized that Kristen's ex-boyfriend was challenging him to a fight. 'I started to get up,' said Nic, who automatically fell back on his reflexes, before thinking twice about it. 'He walked away,' he said of Oseary. 'He's a kid, basically. I felt bad for him actually. I know if I do fight, I fight to kill. My motto has always been: maximum violence immediately. That means pushing the nose into the face or whatever you've got to do. So, I don't want to get into a fight'"
Clearly a Winchester old boy.
According to Cage, he owns the "Most Haunted House in America", a home located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. The home is known as the "The LaLaurie house" after its former owner Delphine LaLaurie.
According to Cage, he owns the "Most Rubbery Face in America", a face located in the French Quarter of Nicholas Cage, Cagetonia.The face is known as the "The Cage face" after its current owner Nicholas Cage.
i love nic cage
The Rock was proper good. The National Treasure films are stupid but funny if you're hungover (OMG there's a map in the president's desk! All this time! Wowza!), he was actually good in Leaving Las Vegas, and in Face/Off he shoots two guns at once.
Yeah. Consider yourself proved wrong.
Also, I refer you to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Affleck
could he do that if he was the world's worst actor? NO!
Abel Ferrara, director of the 1992 film, has been quoted by various media outlets as being very angry about this film. After the film was first announced, Ferrara was quoted as saying "As far as remakes go, … I wish these people die in Hell. I hope they're all in the same streetcar, and it blows up." When asked later for his response to Ferrara's statements, Herzog stated that he does not know who Ferrara is, saying "I've never seen a film by him. I have no idea who he is." 
I'm sure it will be awesome. Val Kilmer lives on a ranch.
cant believe Werner Herzog is directing.
I know you shouldnt laugh but Grizzly Man is one of the funniest films I've ever seen due to Herzog's direction
I forgot all about Adaptation. Word up.
i was going all the way through this thread and no one had mentioned adaptation.
it's one of my favourite films and he's fantastic in it.
raising arizona, red rock west, adaptation, wild at heart. go watch those and you'll see he's not a bad actor at all, it's just he seems to take on any old role these days.
probably the best film ever made.
goes to Sean Bean for me. Also has one character - SEAN BEAN
I thought he was good in Lord of the Rings, as a James Bond villan and those Sharpe series are good sometimes, i like him. Keanu Reeves is awful ''theres a bomb on the bus''
i enjoyed con air, and leaving las vegas was ok.
okay he's been in some stinkers over the past 10 years, but he's by no means the worst actor. so, disagree.
Leaving Las Vegas
and despite what you may think Con Air
He can act just not all the time.
But yeah, he has been in a LOT Of other shit movies...
hmm, acutally i cant think of any others that are good that hes been in...
and dreadful in some dreadful films. I want to see his new film though.
I want to see it but at the same time I'm fairly sure it'll start well and just have a disappointing ending.
But his brother sucked ass...
