10 o’clock(ish) list: Top 10 Most Memorable Nicolas Cage Movies

Actor Nicolas Cage gets a lot of crap for starring in basically any movie that will pay him, but he has had a pretty successful interesting career in Hollywood.

My hair is going to steal the Declaration of Independence

Here are Nick Cage’s top 10 most memorable movies in no particular order:

  1. Kick-Ass: Cage is in no way the star of this movie, but he definitely adds a lot to it in his role as “the nonconventional father,” Big Daddy. 
  2. City of Angels: Nick plays an angel who falls in love with Meg Ryan — ’90s Meg Ryan, not creepy “my-face-does-not-move” Meg Ryan. Also, so many depressing ’90s songs.
  3. Face/Off: Freaky movie.
  4. The Rock: This movie is really all about The Sean Connery, but a good role for Cage nonetheless.
  5. Raising Arizona: A classic movie from the Coen Brothers.
  6. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Just… why?
  7. Moonstruck: I don’t know who shouts more in this movie, Cher or Nick Cage. Probably Cher.
  8. Gone in 60 Seconds: Not as good as the original, but not bad.
  9. Ghost Rider: Apparently there is a sequel coming out in 2012. I have no idea why he did the first. Oh wait, they paid him lots of money.
  10. National Treasure: I love this movie. First one is fantastic. Second one was eh. There will be third coming out in 2014; I hope it isn’t a complete disaster.

Honorable Mention: Every other Nicolas Cage movie not mentioned above.
