Weekend Matinee: DRIVE ANGRY

Did any of you ever watch Ghost Rider?

It was awful; just straight up terrible. It was overly goofy in some parts, overly serious in others, and just generally was not well thought out.

Now, have any of you seen the trailer for Drive Angry? In this upcoming travesty, Nic Cage plays a guy who has escaped from Hell to track down the man that killed his wife (or something). Along the way, he drives fast cars, blows shit up with a kickass shotgun, and hooks up with a hot drifter chick.

It's totally what Ghost Rider should have been.

Change the suped-up SS to a Harley and the scarred face to a burning skull and you'd have the perfect Jason Aaron-esque Spirit of Vengeance. Right?

Don't get me wrong, it would still be terrible (Worse than terrible if it's anything like My Bloody Valentine...), but at least it would give me a reason to go see it.

Anyway, here's the trailer for you to enjoy. If you go see it, lemme know how it is. For my 'fast car revenge' story, I'll stick to Faster.

Also, William Fincher is a way more convincing Satan analogue than Peter Fonda. Just saying...
