A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Feb 14, 2012
I've always loved this character and when he was pushed in the 80's-90's as a true dark anti-hero, I really wanted Hollywood to make a definitive movie on the character. I hope to see his classic villains and the trailers did show BLACKOUT; on this I am excited!

The first movie wasn't good, actually it was bad. I do hope that this time, they manage to get it right....though Nicholas Cage hasn't really made a good movie in awhile.

Update: Read Full Review Here.

Yeah man I got to see this as well, I don't remember what I thought of the first film.
February 17, 2012
I need to re-watch the first movie too. Oh, the full review is posted.

The "Blackout" in this flick is based on his image alone, per the directors' comments. They liked his look, but in the film he's gonna be different. I still have hope for this film.

Yeah, I saw that--I just saw the movie and it was better than the first one, but that really isn't saying much.

Better Than The First Film, But Not The Definitve Film on The Spirit of Vengeance
Ghost Rider has always been a favorite of mine since I was a teen. I mean, he was the ultimate anti-hero, a man torn apart between his humanity and his deal with the devil. The character reached new heights in the 80’s-90’s and reached a dimension that defined the character under the “Midnight Sons” label. I wasn’t very happy with how the 2007 film turned out, but hey, I guess I understood why it tried to do so many things that it lost its focus. Well, the sequel to …

Johnny Blaze Gets
Nicolas Cage sets his head on fire once again in Ghost Rider:  Spirit of Vengeance and the results are mixed.  While I wasn't expecting anything absolutely amazing, I was hoping that this sequel outdid its predecessor.  In some ways it did, but for the most part this was a very standard "get from Point A to Point B" type of flick.      The plot was very simplistic.  Co-writer David S. Goyer, who seems to only write films that are either awesome …

*1/2 out of ****    The first one might have been God-awful, but there was always a chance that a good "Ghost Rider" movie could be made. When Neveldine/Taylor, the directing duo behind the loads-of-fun "Crank" movies, were announced at the helm of the sequel; I was hopeful. When Nic Cage's return to the role of Johnny Blaze was confirmed, I began to doubt the project more than I initially had. When the trailer came out, I was hopeful again. And when I saw the movie itself, I …

Star Rating:         We have already learned that Johnny Blaze (Nicholas Cage) sold his soul to the Devil to become the Ghost Rider, a demonic bounty hunter who takes on the appearance of a flaming skeleton in a leather jacket. He rides a motorcycle, also flaming, and carries with him a chain which he uses as a weapon. About midway through Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, we learn that his powers extend beyond even this – according to what he tells a young boy, …

There was no way anyone thought that Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance was going to be anything more than a bad movie. The only debate was if it was going to be so bad that it was good or that it was going to be just terrible. It had all the tools to be the former, I'm just not quite sure if the movie got there. As long as you don't get bogged down by things like acting, cohesiveness or consistency then there is a chance you may find the trashy fun in Ghost Rider 2 that I'm …

Not exactly what i was expecting.
I never followed the Ghost Rider series, mainly cause my Mother is Christian; Dude with a flaming skull head No no, "Its demonic" she said. So I wasn't allowed to read the comic or watch the movie. Luckily I have some cool family members who (secretly of course) allowed me to watch it at their house. I pop in this DVD watch it and after is done the first thing that came out of my mouth was “GOD THAT MOVIE SUCKED” I was super disappointed.  Fast forward to January …

I want this film to work so badly. The Rider is one of the coolest and most unique characters in the Marvel Universe, and I hope this film does him justice. I enjoyed the first film, but thought it could have been much better. I'll find out this weekend if the sequel betters the original.
