    Ghost Rider 2 (film)

    I quite liked the first one. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure I guess for me

    AICN has a featurette for the sequel - http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52952
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I thought the first film was rubbish ... however with Neveldine & Taylor doing this sequel, who knows, perhaps it might be half-decent? On the other hand it could still be shite. Only time will tell, I guess.

    I like Idris Elba, but damn, he'll take any sort of working role he can get his hands on...not that I blame him, but

    Though he his in Prometheus, so that's cool

    I think Meryl Streep once said an actor should take any role they're offered ... or maybe it was another actor ... point is, you never know when the wheel's gonna stop. Mind you, if you don't make sure you're also appearing in numerous quality products, you'll soon find yourself in money troubles and appearing on a crappy reality show, or banged up in the slammer.

    Ha, did anyone here actually see this? I did last night, for $2.50 of course.
    Now, while I will say I liked it, it wasn't as good as the first one in my eyes. I also didn't see it in 3D, and can't see how 3D would've made it any better.
    It was watchable, but could've been less Cage/more Ghostie.
    It was like, "OK, Nick, we get it. You're cray-cray. Now hurry up and turn into GR and lay waste to some baddies."
    I like when he grabs someone and just holds them, gazing deeply into their eyes. Then he kinda starts shrieking and turning his head side to side on you. Pointless, but hilarious to behold.
    Not bad, but I'd like to rewatch the first one since it's been so long.

    I considered seeing this in the cinema, but read loads of bad reviews, plus none of my mates wanted to see it - and considering the piss-take price of cinema tickets these days, I'll only go and see sure-things now ... so in other words, I'll wait till it's on Sky Movies. I'll make sure to expect not an awful lot ... didn't think much of the first, but hoped that Neveldine & Taylor would bring some badassery to the concept (Crank 1 and 2 rocked, while Gamer was a bit undercooked) ... we shall see in due course I guess.

    i just want this entire "franchise" to go away. it is something i wish i had never heard of or seen. i literally did an old style spit take when i heard there was going to be a second movie because the first one is easily one of the biggest pieces of cinematic dog crap ever to be unleashed on planet earth.

    ah, that is an excellent idea. the first movie just cries out for an MST3K style commentary.

    i think a kitten and puppy both die every time FX or Spiketv shows the first movie.

    i was a big ghostrider fan when i was a kid and the first "film" is one of the few movies that has ever actually really pissed me off. most of them i just laugh at or ignore or treat as the piece of garbage they are. for some reason, that flick got way up under my skin.
