Okay, so between doing all the extra stuff at home, I found Ghost Rider was on FX. I'd never seen it, although I thought it might be good. Good characters, good CGI potentiality, Nicolas Cage, motorcycles, all could make a good movie. I always wondered why it didn't last long in theaters.
Now I know.
Really, seriously. This could have been a good movie, you know except for the glaring pot holes that could swallow Kansas whole and not even burp. Hell, even the special effects could have made this a good movie. But they fail to do so. Okay, I admit I'm not paying that close of attention (doing, you know, the other things), but really. I mean, Nicolas Cage. WTF?
Sure, there's some good eye candy. But with the lines they delivered the acting had to be way over the top, and it wasn't. Lots of "actor stand still so we can do the cool CGI over you." Stupid plot, stupid plot solutions, deux ex machina dropping all over the place, stupid, stupid, stupid. Why go there and do that, oh, so we can do the cool CGI. Right.
To my nephew, if this could get green lighted, seriously dude, you don't have any problem.
