Anybody see Ghost Rider this weekend? I did. Along with $42.5 million worth of other ticket holders, once again proving that nobody really listens to critics anyway. Apparently they pretty much straight hated it.
WaffleMovies had this to say:
"I kept hoping the Scooby Doo gang would come out, rip the mask off of Cage and reveal Ghost Rider really is crazy old man Ben Affleck! That would explain so much."
Kudos to WaffleMovies for conjuring images of Freddy Prinze Jr. and Ben Affleck together in my head without making me vomit like usual.
In all reality it isn't insanely bad. Nicholas Cage's acting was the best part, surprising as that may be. But even with his mad acting chops, I couldn't get into it. There's just something about the way Ghost Rider does battle on screen just takes away any semblance of serious action.
I'd avoid laying eyes on Ghost Rider 'till you flip past it on TBS sometime next week.
PS. Mary, if you're reading this - I apologize. I figured that 42.5 million would be enough to let you keep your job and everything. That and, there's like ... two people who read this blog anyway.
