Happy Birthday to Nicolas Cage


Nicolas Cage

Happy Birthday to Nicolas Cage!

The famous actor turns 50 years old today.

Although he and his career have basically imploded and taken a nosedive in the last 7 years, Nicolas Cage is still one of my favorite actors of all time.

Unfortunately he has disgraced us all with the absurdity and awfulness of The Wicker Man (2006), Ghost Rider (2007), The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010), Season of the Witch (2011), Drive Angry (2011), Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011), and The Frozen Ground (2013).

However, let us not forget the jewels that he has bestowed upon us with:

NICOLAS CAGE as Yuri Orlov in LORD OF WAR directed by ANDREW NICCOL

Lord of War (2005),

The Weather Man Nicolas Cage

The Weather Man (2005),

National Treasure Nicolas Cage

National Treasure (2004),

Matchstick Men Nicolas Cage

Matchstick Men (2003),

The Family Man Cage Cheadle

The Family Man (2000),

Gone in Sixty Seconds Cage

Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000),

Bringing Out the Dead Cage

Bringing Out the Dead (1999),

FaceOff Cage

Face/Off (1997),

Con Air Cage Malkovich

Con Air (1997),

The Rock Cage

The Rock (1996),

Leavin Las Vegas Cage

Leaving Las Vegas (1995),

Kiss of Death Cage

Kiss of Death (1995),

Raising Arizona Cage

and Raising Arizona (1987).

The man can still act.  Every once in a while he gets his act together and creates something that is reminiscent of the Nicolas Cage of old.  I still watch his films with a shimmer of hope because one day he could turn it all around and return to greatness.  One day he just might make his comeback.  He is not getting any younger, but 50 years old is something to celebrate.  Happy Birthday Nic and thank you for the excellent movie watching experiences!

Trailer for Escape Plan (2013)


Escape Plan Poster

Escape Plan (2013) (click on the title for my full review.)

Grandpa Stallone and Grandpa Schwarzenegger are both at it again.  This time Sylvester plays a prison escape artist.  After finding a way to break out of a number of prisons, he designed a new prison where escaping is near impossible.  Of course, eventually he finds himself framed and locked up in the very prison that he created.  Arnold is on the inside with him.  Now Stallone must breakout in order to track down the party responsible for getting him locked up.

The film is directed by Mikael Hafstrom and the cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, Sam Neill, 50 Cent (lol), and Amy Ryan.

The movie reminds me a bit of Face/Off (1997) simply because in that film John Travolta‘s character (with Nicolas Cage‘s face) agrees to go under cover and be locked up in a high-tech prison.  Eventually the only people that know he is undercover find themselves dead and he is forced to try to escape if he wants to get back to his real life.

How does 50 Cent keep getting parts in movies?

Although Stallone and Schwarzenegger are both maybe a little too ancient to be making this type of movie, I think that somehow they will pull it off.  Either way, I will be there to give you my take on it.

The film is set to release on 10/18/13.
