Nick Cage

September 14th, 2003

Today inadvertently turned into Nicholas Cage day. First we saw Matchstick Men which was even better than I had thought it would be. I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone, so I’ll just say that I was really thrown by the direction the movie took, which made it all the more interesting.

In the afternoon I remembered that we had borrowed Valley Girl from the library, so we watched that. What was with that movie? I just didn’t get it. Why would anyone want to be with the main character when she was such a bitch? She’d just drop a guy without warning, yet both guys she dated wanted her. Someone should have told me that back when I was in high school … maybe I would have spent less time heartbroken. ;)

Anyway … now I’m watching Gone in Sixty Seconds on cable. I think Nicholas Cage looks better with age, that’s for sure. He’s quite the versatile actor … and while he’s not what I consider a “Hollywood Hunk”, he’s not bad on the eyes, and he’s good at what he does.

I especially love his character in The Family Man, which is the first movie I ever saw with Joe … which may be why I love Nicholas Cage so much, now that I think about it. :)

    I saw Matchstick Men this weekend also. Very good! I’ve always loved the versatility of Nicholas Cage.
