Dave started the day by introducing Slog to the trailer for Marmaduke. I am now bookending things with bad movie trailers by introducing Slog to the trailer for the upcoming Nicholas Cage film The Sorcerer's Apprentice:



You know, I had rediscovered my Vampire's Kiss-era reservoir of goodwill for Nicholas Cage after watching Bad Lieutenant and reading interviews like this one with Ain't It Cool News:

But with audiences, there has been a core group that got it from the get go and they have been with me ever since. It does take some time. It does take some time with certain movies with the benefit of hindsight when they can see it in addition to BAD LIEUTENANT they might go “Oh, well maybe he actually did think WICKER MAN was funny…” ...You don’t karate chop Leelee Sobieski in the throat and not know how absurd that is, but it’s just not something I would like to talk about. I would rather let them discover it on their own, but I think I learned a lot of that kind of off the wall kind of stuff watching Stanley Kubrick because his movies were incredibly funny, but you never really knew how much was planned or accident you know?

But then he makes something like Ghost Rider or (based on this trailer, I'm gonna go ahead and assume) The Sorcerer's Apprentice and I'm all like, "Oh, yeah. I remember why I hated you, again."
