Nicolas Cage, The Wicker Man

POLL: What’s your favourite Nicolas Cage performance?

Whether you love him, hate him, or love to hate him, there’s no denying Nicolas Cage is a cultural phenomenon unto himself.

One look at social media and you’ll see many meme dedicated to the star and his often outrageous over-the-top performances in roles like Peter Loew in Vampire’s Kiss where Cage plays a publishing exec who thinks he’s a vampire. His pièce de résistance when it comes to over-the-top Cageyness is his role in the quotable cult horror (that’s so bad it’s actually a comedy) The Wicker Man which sees him dressing up like a bear and punching ladies in the face before his screaming climax of “ahhhhh not the bees!” 

With so many nutty characters under his belt, it’s easy to forget that Cage can turn in a highly respectable performance in movies like Adaptation, Moonstruck, and his Oscar-winning turn as the alcoholic screenwriter in Leaving Las Vegas.

This week, Cage is once again turning to animated fare as he lends his voice to the leader of the animated caveman family in The Croods. As the protective papa Gurg, he embarks on an adventure with his cave family as they embark on a prehistoric road trip through uncharted territory.

There’s no denying that we’re big Cage fans at Cineplex. We agonized over his performances and made some extremely difficult decisions when it came to whittling down his sixty-plus performances into ten for you to vote on in our poll. Cast your vote below!
