The Best of Nicolas Cage Films List

Updated on April 29, 2011

The Versatile Nicolas Cage

One of the most versatile movies star of all time. He is also one of the best at portraying normal people put into incomprehensible situations. He is none other than Mr Nicholas Cage.

Did you know that he is the nephew of acclaimed director Francis Coppola?

Read on to see my handpicked Nicholas Cage films list from his early breakthrough roles, to his trademark blend of comedy action or his dark satire gems.

It Could Happen to You

The story begins when a street cop played by Nicolas Cage offer half his potential lottery winnings as tips to the waitress played by Bridget Fonda.

What unfolds when he win 4 million dollars in terms of his moral dilemma of whether to share the winnings make seem far fetch at first. But it is actually inspired by a true story. 

A romantic story that feels so natural with the two fantastic lead of endearing Nicholas Cage and the lovely Bridget Fonda.

Guarding Tess

One of the most refreshing comedy of it time.

The pairing of the Tess played by .... with the nicholas Cage is pure genius. Aided by a fantastic script and the steady hand of director ... no wonder this is one of my all time favorite comedy by Nicholas Cage.


what do you get when you add two male leads in top form like Nicholas Cage and John Travolta, and a kickass gun ballet of a director John Woo?

You get this kickass movie that combines great acting where two talented actor gets to "swap faces" through a great plot device that shows off the actings chops of  Travolta and Cage.

I have to say both Travolta and Cage are equally believable as the good guys or the bad guys which is the main reason why this movie works so well.

Matchstick Men

Ridley Scott shows off his comedy drama directing chops in this movie about an unlikely but determined conman plagued by obsessive complusive behaviors.

Through the course of his movie, Cage's life is further complicated by the arrival of his precocious 14 year old daughter played by Alison Lohman and his ambitious partner in crime played by Sam Rockwell.

      I haven't watched Raising Arizona or Leaving Las Vegas yet. I'll be sure to add them to this Nicolas Cage films list during my next update.

      I think Nicholas Cage is a wonderful actor. My fave film with him was Leaving Las Vegas.

      I love Nicholas Cage movies. The first I remember seeing him in was Raising Arizona. That was really funny. Guarding Tess was great too.
