Nicolas Cage interview

While a seedy motel run by Nicolas Cage sounds like a dream location for a honeymoon trip or a late night pitstop, that’s not the case in director Tim Hunter‘s thriller, Looking Glass. The actor gives a reserved, more internalized performance in the film as Ray, who takes over running a rundown motel with his wife (Robin Tunney). Spying on guests, a murder, and the arrival of an oddball sheriff ensue when Cage comes to town in the old school thriller.

Cage’s performance is a great contrast to his recent (and excellent) turn in Mom & Dad, which was one of his more over-the-top performances. Both roles create a sense of mystery, as Cage often does as a performer. He never comes off calculated, but even when he seems like he’s going off the rails, it’s all very calculated, as director Brian Taylor recently told us.

We recently spoke with Cage about wanting a character to raise questions, the musical experience of acting, his array of influences, and of course, The Weather Man, a movie I love and couldn’t help but mention.

nicolas cage justice league

Remember when Nicolas Cage was supposed to play Superman in Tim Burton’s ill-fated Superman Lives project in the ’90s? As the superhero boom has taken over Hollywood, a documentary has been made on the subject and Cage has been grilled about it endlessly — and he is probably done talking about it, thank you very much.

But people still want to know what the former coulda-been Superman thinks of the latest incarnation of the Man of Steel on the big screen. Which leads to a patently hilarious five-second review of Justice League from film critic extraordinaire, Nicolas Cage.

Mandy review

A primal, psychedelic rage-scream of a movie, Mandy takes a while to get going, but once it does, it delivers exactly what fans are hoping for: Nicolas Cage fully unleashing the beast within and absolutely wrecking people with a giant axe and a chainsaw. It’s just a shame it doesn’t get to the blood-soaked revenge much sooner. Read More »

Mom and dad trailer

Brian Taylor‘s high-adrenaline style of filmmaking probably couldn’t find a better actor to pair with than Nicolas Cage. Cage, who’s described his seemingly unhinged performances as punk rock, gets the chance to let loose again in his second collaboration with Taylor, Mom and Dad. Cage is the dad and Selma Blair is the mom, and both actors bring a lunacy and realness to Taylor’s original story about parents losing control of themselves and attacking their children.

Taylor is the co-director of the unforgettable Crank films and Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance, which also starred Cage. But Mom and Dad is his first feature without his frequent collaborator, Mark Neveldine. However, the pitch dark outrageousness Taylor brought to those movies is still infused in his latest film, as well as his new TV show, Syfy’s Happy! We recently discussed both projects with Taylor. And yes, we talk about Nicolas Cage a lot.

mom and dad review

Note: This Mom and Dad review is as spoiler-free as possible, but some minor spoilers do pop up.

At this point in his career, Nicolas Cage has become meme-ified to the point where it’s hard to know where the real Cage ends and his pop-eyed, shrill-screaming on-screen persona begins. This isn’t to call Cage a bad actor – indeed, he’s a phenomenal actor, and capable of turning in subtle, quiet performances (see: Bringing Out the Dead). But here, in the early 21st century, it’s safe to say that when audiences seek out a Nicolas Cage movie, they’re looking for Cage at his Cage-iest. They want the actor to be literally bouncing off the walls.

Folks will get that, and more, when they watch Brian Taylor’s frenetic, manic horror-comedy Mom and Dad. Taylor, who was one-half of the directors who birthed the loony Crank series, brings the thudding cuts and wild edits of that aforementioned series to Mom and Dad; whether or not this is the type of film that needs such things is another question, however.

Mom and dad trailer

Nicolas Cage looks to be at his Nicolas Cage-iest in the high-energy Mom and Dad trailer. The jet-black horror-comedy stars Cage and Selma Blair as a pair of suburban parents who are suddenly seized with an unstoppable urge to murder their children. This feeling has likely come over many suburban parents, but Cage and Blair decide to actually act on their urges, with potentially bloody results. Watch the Mom and Dad trailer below.
