Which of Nicolas Cage’s 2023 movies is the most enjoyable?

Nicolas Cage, the prolific actor who has graced our screens for decades, had a busy 2023 with a plethora of movie releases, from Westerns to crime thrillers.

7. The Old Way (January 6, 2023)

Nicolas Cage’s first Western film and it's a classic revenge story. He's a gunslinger turned store owner. But when his wife is brutally murdered, he's back to his old ways, gun in hand. The film holds a rating of 5.5 on IMDb.

6. Sympathy for the Devil (July 28, 2023)

Despite the title sounding like a horror movie (and the film kind of looks like one), this is more of a crime thriller with vintage soul vibes. The movie is mostly predictable, but it’s still absolutely fun. It is rated 5.5 on IMDb as well.

5. The Retirement Plan (September 15, 2023) — 5.6 IMDb

We witness Nicolas Cage as a beach bum enjoying retirement. It's all sun, sand, and sips until his unknown granddaughter shows up with trouble tailing her. The whole movie is basically Cage killing baddies. The IMDb rating for the movie stands at 5.6.

4. Renfield (April 14, 2023) — 6.4 IMDb

We’ve seen Cage playing a guy who thinks he is becoming a vampire. In this movie, Cage is an actual vampire. Nicola cage as Dracula is a treat, and the movie focuses on the rather unusual relationship between the vampire and his servant, Renfield. The movie has earned a rating of 6.4 on IMDb.

3. Butcher's Crossing (October 20, 2023)

Butcher's Crossing is a neo-Western drama that premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2022, but hasn’t been released in theaters yet. According to early reviews, while visually stunning, the movie is a tad predictable. This movie is currently rated 6.4 on IMDb.

2. The Flash ( June 16, 2023)

Nicolas Cage’s cameo as Superman is too hilarious to overlook. While he looked completely computer-generated, he was actually in a Superman suit on set. The movie is rated surprisingly higher than expected, with a score of 6.8 on IMDb.

1. Dream Scenario (November 10, 2023) — 8.3 IMDb

Paul, played by Cage, is a professor with a peculiar problem: he keeps popping up in people's dreams. Initially amusing, it soon becomes a nightmare. The IMDb rating for the movie stands at 8.3. On Rotten Tomatoes, 84% of 25 critics' reviews are positive. So, it looks like it’s worth waiting.
