The last couple of weeks I've been wiped and emotional, my cold has come back (it never fully went away), and today I've majorly barked the back of my right foot on the wire door, hurt the index finger of my left hand mending the gate, and hurt the thumb on my right hand fixing a tap.

On the bright side I spent chunks of yesterday watching Ghost Rider, which while Nicolas Cage was a bit crap in it, I still found to be an enjoyable film. And Christopher Young did the film's music, and I almost always enjoy his work.

And I finished The Kolchak Papers which was a good read despite the huge amount of spelling errors.

Poor Nicolas Cage. He chose his performing name after the Marvel superhero Luke Cage, he named his own son Kal-El and he has one of the biggest comic book collections in America. He's been desperate to play a superhero for years, signing on to Superman V (cancelled) and Iron Man (cancelled). Now all he gets to play is Ghost Rider.

I like Nicolas Cage, but I don't think he was terribly good in Ghost Rider. How much was just him, how much was the script, it's hard to say. But over all I was entertained enough by the movie that at some point I'll pick up a copy.

I don't think he'd be right for Superman, or Iron Man. Which suddenly leaves me with the question, what superhero would he be right for?

I think he would've been a great Iron Man, given the right script. It would've been very different to Downey Jr's, but still interesting - less playboy and more Howard Hughes.

Actually I think he'd potentially make a very interesting Lex Luthor.

That was the problem with Ghost Rider the script is fun, but it just doesn't quite work with Cage. He would make a cool Lex Luthor.

When I was trying to think of other folks he could be, the first to spring to mind was Doctor Strange, but I have no reason to think that beyond him not needing to look heroic.

Give him long enough though, and he can play Pa Kent to his son's interpretation of Clark in a future Superman remake!
