Has Nic Cage become so bad he's almost good again?

He's starred in some remarkable films -- "Adaptation," "Raising Arizona" -- and he even won an Oscar for his performance in "Leaving Las Vegas." But in the last couple of years, Cage has put out some real clunkers.

His new film, "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" (how can that film lose with such a title?!) imagines the star as fire-pissing vigilante brought out of hiding to destroy the devil.

Ridiculous, sure. But please, curb your skepticism!

Here's a reason to be optimistic: The "Face/Off" phenomenon. This film imagined a scenario where Cage switches faces with his co-star, John Travolta. This film was not only a huge financial success, it was critically-lauded, earning a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Take a look at some of Cage's "worst" films (all of which have received less than 20% on Rotten Tomatoes -- there's one that even got a whooping 0%) and let us know which one tops your favorite good-bad list.

''Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,'' hits theaters Feb. 17, 2012.
