“Best. Ever.” is a weekly conglomeration of things that made my week. And there was much rejoicing. This week, Ghost Rider 2 will be moody, the Oscar hosts have been announced, two of my new favorite games, Google’s Dashboard, and Max Barry’s Machine Man goes to Hollywood.
Ever since I was a teenager Ghost Rider has been one of my favorite comic book heroes. He has everything it takes to be a great tragic/violent icon – from the flaming skull and the painful past to the fact that he fights against the perfect nemesis – the devil. The only problem is, well, he might be what you call a true comic book hero. On paper heâ€™s an intense character who survived on style and darkness, but somehow after the transformation to the screen you feel like something might be missing.
