Two words: Nic Cage. Has there ever been two other words in the history of language that could contain the multitudes that these words represent? Maybe when the ancients were building the tower of Babel and the world's language was confused, there remained slivers of the pure language that contained the secrets to the universe. It's like Nic Cage knew this, changing his name from Nicolas Coppola to Nicolas Cage (after his favorite Marvel character Luke Cage). He knew he'd need to hold back that purity (put it in a Cage, if you will), because otherwise we would have built a tower to Heaven with the ridiculousness and awesomeness that is his filmography.
Maybe it can still get us there. Like to Baby-O in Con Air, Nic is here to show us that, yes, God does exist, and He loves Nic Cage.
That's good. Because we do too!
Here, the other lesser Nic and I each choose our top 5 Cage moments, ranging from the ridiculous and the over-the-top (two phrases you'll here a lot) to the...well mainly more of that. These knobs go to eleven, baby, like no other Filmshake has shaken!
