The Weirdest Shit in Movies This Year

Rich Juzwiak · 12/19/14 10:05AM

If a movie is not going to show us something new, it should at least show us something different. Below are some examples, for better and certainly for worse, of some weird shit I noticed in some of my favorite and least favorite movies of 2014. (Warning: There are, I guess, spoilers below. Also, in addition to that cartoon boob is one one human boob.) Please feel free to share some of your favorite weird moments in the comments below.

Here's Every Nic Cage Laugh from Every Nic Cage Movie

Jay Hathaway · 05/28/14 10:42AM

Nic Cage has gotten a ton of mileage out of his trademark unhinged laugh, and now, thanks to one video editor's bravery, we know exactly how much mileage. This is a supercut of every Nicolas Cage laugh in every live-action Nicolas Cage movie, and it's 20 minutes long.

The Tragedy of Gary Poulter, Nic Cage's Homeless Co-Star

Rich Juzwiak · 04/11/14 10:21AM

Last year, Gary Poulter, one of the stars of David Gordon Green's new movie Joe, died in a homeless encampment in Austin. For Joe, Green had mixed non-professional actors with stars like Nicolas Cage (as Joe, a hero in his rural community who's this close to snapping) and up-and-comers like Tye Sheridan, as Gary, the 15-year-old boy that Joe takes under his wing. In that sense, the casting was along the lines of other modern poorsploitation cinema like Winter's Bone and Gummo. Poulter plays Wade (aka G-Daawg), Gary's abusive father, a drunk who is as limber, and coherent, as Charles Manson. Gary and Wade join Joe's crew of tree-killing manual laborers, who prep forests to be cleared for the planting of valuable pine trees. Only the kid can hold onto the job.

Let's All Be More Like Nicolas Cage and Led Zeppelin

Above, Nicolas Cage describes his acting discipline, "nouveau shamanic," which involves "put[ting] on Afro-Caribbean paint" and "sew[ing] in bits of Egyptian artifacts that are thousands of years old into my costume and gather[ing] some onyx or tourmeline or something that was meant to have vibrations." Yesterday, he told Moviefone:

Nicolas Cage's Wax Figure Not Thrilled to Meet Actual Nicolas Cage

Emma Carmichael · 01/31/12 06:35PM

Here is wax figure Nicolas Cage, trying to get along with actual Nicolas Cage at Paris's Musée Grévin on Sunday. Have you ever seen a wax figure look so fundamentally disinterested in his counterpart? I'm worried about their chemistry. Hopefully, they bonded just a little bit over the complicated life of a stunt motorcyclist who's often engulfed in flames and acting as jazz. Not everyone can share these interests, wax figure Nic and actual Nic. Go have a cigarette together, or something. [Via]

Ghost Rider 2: It's Nicolas Cage Against the Devil

Leah Beckmann · 12/20/11 12:01PM

The trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the sequel to the 2007 cinematic masterpiece, Ghost Rider, has it all: creepy precocious child actors, talking skeleton demons all ablaze, the devil taking on human form, a guy with blond hair. Topped off with the ultimate coup de grâce that is Nic (insert facial tic) Cage. Already we see him on a motorcycle, we see him cracking jokes, we see him doubled over, his body racked with sobs. Ah yes, right where we left him.

Madonna on Boytoys: 'More Than Just Sexual, Um, Appendages'

Maureen O'Connor · 11/10/11 11:28AM

The Shortest Celebrity Marriages

Brian Moylan · 10/31/11 05:01PM

Kim Kardashian is getting divorced after only 72 days. That's only two and a half months. Apparently celebrities are especially susceptible to being married for very short periods of time. Here are some that were so short they make Kim's look long, and some that lasted a bit longer and make Kim's look short, sort of like when she'd stand next to her future ex, Kris Humphries.

Are Nicolas Cage and John Travolta Undead?

Seth Abramovitch · 09/29/11 12:08AM

There were those who laughed off a recent eBay listing claiming to offer a Civil War-era photograph of Nicolas Cage (he went by Jack Mord back then, but that was probably just an anagram) for the cool asking price of $1 million. "Personally," the seller wrote, "I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead/vampire, etcetera, who quickens/reinvents himself once every 75 years or so."

Kim Kardashian Snubs Husband and Sister-in-Law In Front of Everyone

Maureen O'Connor · 09/15/11 11:05AM

All three Kardashians blow off Kris Humphries' plus-size model sister. Mila Kunis gets hacked. A naked man with a Fudgesicle broke into Nicolas Cage's house. Padma Lakshmi bombs at an open mic night. Thursday gossip turns up its nose.

Trespass: Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage Are in Danger

Richard Lawson · 08/18/11 10:57AM

Here is a trailer for Trespass, no not a reissue of the 1992 Bill Paxton/Ice-T/Ice Cube collaboration, rather a new movie starring Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage as a wealthy couple suffering a home invasion. It looks... yikes.
