Ghostrider - DVD podBLAST




Nicholas Cage rides through this pile of crap (yet another poorly realized Marvel adaptation) admirably, though clearly much of his time was spent in his trailer while the animators took over.

Try to forget that he made a deal with the devil and can't be killed, and you may just sense some drama here and there.

Two other things to note: Eva Mendes can't even pull off a convincing news reporter. Uh, Eva? The Academy called. They'd like you to go home now.

One of the greatest mis-casts ever:
Wes "...there's so much beauty in the world..." Bentley as Blackheart-The-Squeaky-Voiced.

I survived Ghost Rider. I feel like my skull's on fire, but I'm good.

So the script was terrible, Wes Bentley sucks, Eva Mendes was only there for the cleavage factor, but other than that, I liked Ghost Rider. Then again, I also liked Resident Evil: Apocalypse, so perhaps I have some kind of mental disorder.

But this has got me thinking... the theme for DVD podBLAST's third season: shitty superhero movies. Just because the third and fourth Superman movies need to be blasted.

So, DoucheTrax has JUST done a commentary for THE BOURNE IDENTITY.

Just proves my point from before that because their stuff has no purpose or point-of-view they just have to go after movies that are popular to keep their audience.

Christ, why don't they just do LORD OF THE RINGS?

Oh wait... they have!

Rifftrax, YOU SUCK!!!

God bless Bill for name-checking the late, great Randy Rhodes; without out doubt one of the top five greatest rock guitarist of all time.

To answer his question: Randy died when a light aircraft he was in buzzed Ozzy's tour bus, clipped it and crashed.

Last I heard, Ozzy still can't bring himself to visit Randy's grave, although he sends flowers every year.

(NOTE: Sorry for the multiple posts, but I'm posting as I'm listen to the Blast.)

The Jack Black-as-motorcycle pilot Senko mentioned was called HEAT VISION AND JACK, which I remember from reading the script online.

I don't know how the actual show turned out but the script was fucking retarded, but might have made a funny show with the combined comic talents(Yeah, I said it!) of Black, Wilson and Ben Stiller, who I think directed it.
