Minus The Nemesis
A Collaboration of Some of the Finest Thought on Today's World

According to the title of this article, "Nicolas Cage plans to cut back on acting", I am inclined to think that the author really doesn't watch that many Nicholas Cage movies. You see, the way I figure it Nicholas Cage has been "cutting back" on acting since around 1987.

You see if you want your local movie house to actually earn the opportunity to dispossess you of your hard-earned money, they will usually have to show good films. I can't say that a movie house surviving on Nick Cage films will make it is all. With characters like Nicolas Coppola (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) and Randy (Valley Girl) under his belt, Nicholas Cage has shown the true limits of his acting abilities in those two films. Nicholas Cage can't play anything but a dumb, confused, monosyllabic, half retarded "character" in any film. Whoever shit the bed and gave him an award for best actor in Leaving Las Vegas should be punched in the face; repeatedly.

The year was 1995 and Nicholas Cage was up against Richard Dreyfuss in Mr. Holland's Opus, Anthony Hopkins in Nixon, Sean Penn(is) in Dead Man Walking and Massimo Troisi from The Postman. Leaving Las Vegas, seriously? Bunch of morons. Then again, these are the same idiots who gave Sarandon an award at the same show...but that is another post.
