Not that Nicholas Cage ever had much ‘artistic integrity’ to begin with, but did you ever wonder why he’s showing up in every ‘piece of shit’ role in every ‘shithole’ straight to DVD movie imaginable? You know what I mean. Those movies that you’re tempted to let your dog dump on before you return them to Redbox? The answer is simple.
