Thanks Mhatter99, appreciate the comment. Like Travolta, Cage has had his share of bad films, lots of weird ones too, but he is a good actor when he's not pulling faces and grimacing. :)

Intersestin poster finds....the Moonstruck one makes it look like a completely different movie. Also I liked seeing the Honeymoon in Vegas poster....never seen that one before.

Vampire's Kiss is one strange movie....I think people hate that movie because they are expecting a vampire movie....I think if people go into that movie and realize it is about a young man completely losing his mind then it will be a much better viewing experience.

Sadly Mr. Cage is going through a very rough time in his career now.....maybe National Treasure 3 will bring him back to his glory days. It seems that his making a new movie every two or three months....and now they seem more likely to go DVD first rather than a theater...so sad.

Cage movies I really like....Con Air, The Rock, Trapped in Paradise(so bad it is actually funny and a Christmas movie I watch every year....plus what casting...Dana Carvery, Jon Lovitz and Cage as brothers...confused about where the poster is...lol), and Kick Ass.

You are getting closer and closer to 100 movie poster hubs...your hard work is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for commenting on my Nicolas Coppola hub Bruce, much appreciated.

I always seem to miss out your favourites, it's not my fault you have a preference for the more obscure films of an actors filmography. :)

Actually that Moonstruck poster is exactly how I remember that film, lots of family members gathered round and yapping away for 2 hours.

I love that Razzie nomination for Season of the Witch, it's a classic - Worst Couple (Cage and anyone sharing the screen with him) :) The Razzie people really had it in for Cage and Travolta, and Stallone too.

Cage has been in an eclectic set of movies. I have mixed feelings about him-- perhaps because of his many rather strange roles and I admit I have missed some of his movies. My granddaughter makes me watch at least one Nicholas Cage movie each time she visits from Fairbanks, Alaska and I think she likes to watch me roll my eyes. She seems unfulfilled if I enjoy her pick. As low as it rated, I think I'll check out Wicker Man-- if only to see how it fares against the original which was weird enough as it was.

Thanks David, I wasn't a Cage fan until he starred in a trio of explosive action films in the mid-90's and I had to admit he was pretty effective in those roles, he surprised me, never expected him to turn into an action star. I thought he was too goofy. :)

The Wicker Man remake was pretty bad, Cage's best eyerolling screams couldn't save it.

I've always liked Nicholas Cage but have to admit I had no idea he made so many movies! I've seen some and though I know they weren't Academy Award material, they were enjoyable. I hope he gets his career back on track.

You always find the best posters and facts! Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

Thanks Mary, your comments are always appreciated. Cage makes too many movies and he's not very choosy that's the problem. I'd never heard of some of his recent films until I started researching this hub. He has 9 films in pre-production this year!
