CAGE RAGE

00290065-0000-0000-0000-000000000000_00000065-06d3-0000-0000-000000000000_20120911221743_CageHello and welcome to the central headquarters of CAGE RAGE. CAGE RAGE is basically, me reviewing every film Nicolas Cage, the genius, has ever starred in. The list of his filmography is below this, every time I review one I’ll highlight it with a link to the review and next to it I will put my new CAGE RAGE star rating out of five. The CAGE RAGE rating scheme will not judge the film or even Cage’s overall performance it is solely provided as in indicator to let you know how much Cage goes mental in the film and, therefore, whether you want to watch it or not. I’m mostly going to be working through the list in chronological order but there are two exceptions, the first being that all films still to be released in the cinema I will watch in the cinema and review straight away, the second is that animated films will be left out until all the live action ones are reviewed, because its not pure Cage. Hope you enjoy!

The CAGE RAGE rating system explained:

  • 1/5 = Docile Cage – Cage is calm throughout, not what we want to see
  • 2/5 = Sparse Outburst Cage – Cage is calm for the majority, there may be one or two scenes where he does something slightly weird
  • 3/5 = Mediocre Cage – Cage may begin to lose his shit, or have a small outburst, nothing spectacular but getting there
  • 4/5 = CAGE RAGE – Cage has at least one sizeable outburst of madness
  • 5/5 = CAGE HAS LOST HIS SHIT – Cage loses his shit on a number of occasions, or one sustained occasion such as a full breakdown
