I was wrong. After every horrible thing I’ve said about him for over two decades, I’ve been put in my place. All that merciless bashing of his on-screen abilities just to have it thrown back into my face. Thinking his only positive contribution to the silver screen was going to be Raising Arizona and now I have to eat crow. I just finished watching Joe and I was wrong. Nicolas Cage is a good actor. Clearly, this is one of the best movies I’ve seen so far this year and, doubtlessly, the strongest performance as well.
Please Mr. Cage, don’t do another Ghost Rider movie or go losing your shit again. It’s now acutely obvious that you’re better than that.
