Trailer Trash: “Ghost Rider 2”

August 30, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
The full title is actually Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but I thought that would just take up too much room.
Now, I know a lot of people are probably expecting me to rip on this trailer but in all honesty, I’m all for this movie. The first one, like so many comic movies, was a misfire and Nicolas Cage seemed to be in the prime kind of form most people hate him for. But Nic Cage has nothing to do with my desire to see this movie. It has everything to do with the two guys at the helm: Neveldine/Taylor. These two schizoids made the Crank series, two of the most hellacious, irreverent action films of the last decade, and I love them for it.
I’m not a Cage-hater: I think he’s an incredible actor of unyielding passion and fire… in the right role, that is. Adaptation, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Leaving Las Vegas and Face/Off are all good examples of the Nic Cage everyone loves. But all you have to do in order to understand the stigma that comes associated with the words “starring Nicolas Cage” is just watch this next video (NSFW language)…
