I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: GTA Online & Mortal Kombat 11


  1. Amazingly I missed a lot of Nicholas Cages early films when they were released, so the first film I watched was The Rock. I thought he held his own well against an on form Sean Connery in what was a fun little action film. Although after watching his other performers since, it was certainly one of his more restrained acting roles. ????

  2. My first Nicolas Cage film was Face/Off and I loved it. It’s one of my favourite action films of the 1990s.

  3. Leaving Las Vegas, I thought it was brilliant and was hooked on Nicholas Cage from that moment on.

  4. Red Rock West – which I really don’t remember – The Rock is the one that I first remember really seeing Nicolas Cage and I thought that was a really good movie

  5. I honestly can’t remember; it may have been ‘Face Off’ which I thought was an enjoyable piece of cinema

  6. National Treasure was the first I think! I thought it was pretty good as a child, always loved a good adventure/historical storyline 🙂

  7. Showing my age here but mine was ‘horror/comedy’ Vampire’s Kiss in the late ’80’s on VHS! I later read that he ate a live cockroach in the film- taking method acting to a whole new level in the process! Even in my youth I remember the film was rubbish so I only revisited that scene on YouTube.

  8. Con Air was the first movie of his I saw. It blew my little mind at the time. Cyrus the virus creeped me out at the tie. But Nic Cage had the best line “Put the bunny back in the box!”

  9. The first film I remember watching is The Family Man, I didn’t think it was brilliant really! Although I can’t remember much about it 😛

  10. National Treasure was the first film I saw Nicholas Cage in. I really enjoyed the hi tonal historical links in it, the humour and the action

  11. ‘Raising Arizona’ and although it’s critically acclaimed and loved by loads of people I thought it was terrible and boring. Nic’s made so many great movies though he’s made up for it in spades.

  12. The first one I saw was Guarding Tess, Shirley MacLaine and Nicholas Cage worked well together, great film to watch. x

  13. “Peggy Sue got married” I wasn’t keen on it at all. I’ve enjoyed some of his other films though, especially “Con Air”.

  14. Mine would be Peggy Sue got married & i loved it.. still watch it sometimes now… also had a young Jim Carrey in it.

  15. Raising Arizona, one of the Coen Brothers’ absolute best and Nic was superb as the ex-con, so was Holly Hunter as his Policewoman wife.

  16. Leaving Las Vegas. As the role that won Cage an Oscar, his turn in Leaving Las Vegas is, obviously, his most critically acclaimed. Cage plays an alcoholic screenwriter who has lost everything and ventures to Sin City to drink himself to death. He researched the role by binge drinking for two straight weeks and having a friend videotape him so he could analyse his speech patterns. His performance is deep and understated.

  17. Peggy Sue got Married – Surreal and hard to understand at the time I was younger, but now as a big boy I appreciate it much more!

  18. Peggy Sue Got Married – not uncle Coppola’s finest hour, but Nicolas Cage’s strange accent and a 30+ year old Kathleen Turner as a high school student helps fill the void in this Quantum Leap-esque trip back to the 60s.

    “Look, I’ve got the hair. I’ve got the teeth. I’ve got the eyes. Look out that window, I’ve got the car. I’m the lead singer. I’m the man.”

  19. Con Air, Brilliant film – remove brain,sit back and let the carnage unfold – “Put the bunny back in the box!” Classic!

  20. My first Nicholas cage film was Raising Arizona. Where he plays a useless robber very enjoyable and if was real he would star in Americas dumbest criminals lol

  21. first movies of his i was was Lord Of War-i really liked it. He gave a full on attitude in the charactor he played.
    At the end of the movie you felt he’d done you proud. Loved it.

  22. I can’t say for sure but I think it was probably Moonstruck. I can’t imagine I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the next one (which would have been either The Rock or Con Air). I find NC a bit odd/uncomfortable to watch, he’s been in a few good films (Wild At Heart, Adaptation., Kick-Ass) but I think I like those films in spite of him, rather than because of him.

  23. I loved Con Air, have to watch it at least once a year. When his car gets pulled over the control tower and crashes to the floor, so funny!

  24. Lord of War (2005) Touches on some interpersonal issues, which could be termed interesting, and also the demise of some of the cast. A sit back and watch film, quite interesting.

  25. The wicker man , it was always going to be difficult to match up to Edward Woodward but he did it superbly. A spine chilling horror classic !!!!!!!

  26. Leaving Las Vegas. He did a great job of playing a broken alcoholic. He’s been in some great films, but some terrible ones too. The Trust looks good and I’m interested to see him next to Elijah Wood.

  27. I think it was Face/Off, and I quite liked it! That line about the tongue creeped me the hell out though… blergh

  28. It was Wild at Heart. I was a little kid who was into Twin Peaks and my parents let me watch Wild at Heart even though it was an 18 and I wasn’t even double digits. I thought it was just weird. I didn’t get it at all.

    Looking back, my parents should have vetted what I watched a bit better.

  29. Has to be ‘Vampire’s Kiss (i think thats its tital) puts a new look on Mr Cage eaten a Cockroach mmmmm

  30. Leaving Last Vegas, I thought it was going to be a comedy. It was a confusing first 10 minutes, but an excellent film.

  31. I’m showing my age – but it was Rumble Fish. Nic had a smaller role, but it was the 1st of many many MANY silly haircuts that would continue throughout his career 🙂

  32. Raising Arizona was the first film I remember seeing him in. It was light but entertaining and he was excellent.

  33. It was Face/Off which is one of my favourite action films. Brilliant OTT performance from Cage. He’s completely insane as Castor Troy.

  34. First one I remember watching was Lord of War – absolutely loved it for some reason. It’s not usually my type of film. I’m sure I’ve seen more, but that’s the first one I remember watching. 🙂

  35. Con Air. Dodgy accent aside, great performance. Genuine humour in the film – John Malkovich and Steve Buscemi were also excellent in it.

  36. I remember ‘The Rock’ vividly, his appearance with Sean Connery was one of my favourite films of my youth

  37. Probably Leaving Las Vegas, which I thought was great, even though it’s not the most uplifting film of all time!

  38. Oops sorry misread … Gone in 60 seconds was my favourite because it was my first encounter with him and in addition I adore Angelina Jolie so that is why I watched it so delightful jollification really.
