Nicolas Cage is a good actor.
Amy TomFeb 1, 2021, 6:47 PM
Hands down. He’s gotta be the only actor who has been in a movie with Cher, Meg Ryan, AND Emma Stone hahhahahha
Amy TomFeb 1, 2021, 6:47 PM
Statistically speaking, he must be the best. He’s been in 110 films and counting

Let's test it. How does Benjamin Gates get access to Abigail's safe?
Amy TomFeb 2, 2021, 2:59 AM
I mean Abigail doesn't own the safe 😅 he got into her office with the coin and he got into the safe where the delectation of independence is by using special laser pointers to disarm the system while it went into cleaning 😂

Look at the range of his facial expressions here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jTQpfspEdk&t anger to confusion to fear to realization to empathy to epiphany to remorse to empowerment to catlike to scared to relief, How can you not think he's the greatest - and dare I say strongest and most athletic - actor of all time?

Cage is so animated in his normal roles, he's just the perfect choice as a voice actor for kids films
Limarc AmbalinaFeb 3, 2021, 11:18 PM
But I do have to say that I can watch National Treasure every year and never get sick of it. Also Gone in 60 Seconds in underrated and still might be my favorite Nicolas Cage film of all time.
David SmookeFeb 3, 2021, 11:53 PM
Animated? The other characters may be animated, but I'm fairly certain that is Nicolas Cage acting as Grug Crood.
