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:

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!

My wife and I started changing the lyrics to “Silent Night” to different movie titles and it started off as a joke.  I decided to see how far I could take it and this was the result.  I will never think of “Silent Night” the same way again.  Which version will you sing this Christmas?

Lord of War Cage Leto gun

One of my all-time favorite actors Nicolas Cage in his best role and my favorite singer Jared Leto from my favorite band 30 Seconds to Mars play brothers in arms in the film, Lord of War (2005).  Lots of my favorites were a part of this movie.  It’s no wonder this is another one of my favorite films.
