Nicholas Cage's Best Roles In Years Past

If you want to talk about prolific actors who continue to churn out movies year after year, Nicholas Cage has to be at the top of the list. Sure, the guy has found himself in financial difficulties, which may help to explain his current splurge of roles in a new movie almost every two months, but the guy can act and remains one of my favorite actors.

Here are some the greatest Nicholas Cage movies from the past two decades.

The Rock is probably my favorite film on this list, for its pure enjoyment factor. Cage was perfect for this movie, as the nerdy and preoccupied Dr. Stanley Goodspeed. This is probably my favorite movie to quote with friends.

Another great Nicholas Cage film came out recently to limited release. That movie was none other than Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call, New Orleans. Sure, it's a wordy title, but don't let that stop you from seeing this dark film in which Cage plays one of the most corrupt cops I've ever seen.

A movie that came out earlier this year (2010) that was incredibly enjoyable was Kickass. Nicholas Cage played a superhero in this film, but one thing I loved about this marketing campaign was that it never credited Cage as being the star of the film.

I would be remiss to make a list of Nicholas Cage films without mentioning Con Air. In Con Air, he plays Cameron Poe, a retired marine who is imprisoned for an act of self defense and has to get through John Malkovich of all people, before he can get home to see his daughter for the first time.

I feel the need to mention Ghost Rider. This film may not have been everything it could have been, but in no part was that Nicholas Cage's fault. Cage did all he could to bring honor to the role of Johnny Blaze and Ghostrider, however the production and budget was just not there to make this movie one of the comic book greats.

Finally, one other movie that most people didn't care for, but I will mention is Windtalkers. I thought this one was good, but for whatever reason I am in the minority.
