Released in 1997, John Woo's 'Face/Off' starred John Travolta as an FBI agent who trades faces with a terrorist played by Nicolas Cage to try and thwart his latest plan. The action-packed film was a smashing success with both critics and audiences alike, and became an instant classic. Now, 17 years later, we revisit the cast of this awesome action flick and see what they're up to now.
In 1987 the Coen brothers released their third film, 'Raising Arizona,' which followed repeat criminal Hi McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) and his cop wife Edwina (Holly Hunter), who discover they are unable to have children, so they kidnap one of the newborn quintuplets belonging to a wealthy furniture magnate. While it wasn't a big success upon initial release, 'Raising Arizona' went on to gain a huge cult following in the years since, and is now considered a classic. 27 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
Based on a short story by Alice Munro, ‘Hateship Loveship’ stars Kristen Wiig as the sheltered and homely caretaker Johanna who comes to work for a new family, only to have the teenage daughter fabricate a romance between her and the girl’s recovering addict father, played by Guy Pearce. Unfortunately, the film is woefully contrived and Wiig’s tame performance feels like just another underwhelming line on her post-’SNL’ resume.
I used to hate sports.
I'd walk by a sports bar and roll my eyes. I'd scoff when people would choose to attend a game instead of doing something real like go to the movies. Growing up just outside San Antonio, Texas, I managed to attend my fair share of Spurs basketball games, but the bug never bit me. When Tim Duncan and his team were at the height of their powers, I was busy watching movies and re-reading my tattered copy of Roger Ebert's 'The Great Movies' and explaining to everyone I knew how superior my taste was (I was a huge, awful jerk).
Little did I know that the the media I embraced would be the thing that would turn me around on the entire issue of sports. Like something out of a science fiction movie, movies would inject me while I wasn't looking, transforming me into a sports fan.

These are 10 of the weirdest objects to ever be the focus of a horror movie. Some are the work of a ghost, some are the work of Satan, and some are just plain inexplicable. Yet they all have one thing in common: they're just kind of baffling.
Released in 1999, 'Go' starred an ensemble cast including young stars Katie Holmes, Timothy Olyphant, and Sarah Polley, and weaving a tale of the interconnecting lives of its various characters as they become involved in a singular drug deal. 'Go' was a hit, drawing comparisons to the energy and style of Quentin Tarantino. 15 years later, we revisit the cast of this clever black comedy and see what they're up to now.
With 'Joe' about to hit theaters, audiences will soon get a reminder of just how good Cage can be. But let's celebrate his long-awaited return to excellence by combing through his filmography and picking the moments that best define his special brand of craziness. Anyone can be good, but only Nicolas Cage can be Nicolas Cage.
There are some actors that I just inexplicably root for. I have no idea what this means or why I do this, but the best way I can explain it is that it’s almost as if the actor is a sports team and I want that actor to win. But at least with sports, there’s regional pride to fuel a sometimes unhealthy rooting interest in what are essentially strangers. There’s really no explanation as to why I feel this with an actor like Nicolas Cage. But, yet, I do.
