.....so we just watched Ghost Rider. It really was no way around it - I'm a sucker for movies based on Marvel characters, seeing as how I grew up with those comics. Moreover, I watch them knowing full and well that the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of me being screwed.
With that in mind, expectations were low before watching the movie. Actor-wise, I figured the odds were a little lower than even - what Nick Cage does to lift the movie, Eva Menendez or whatever and that red-haired wanna-be comedian from that lame 90's sit-com are sure to pull down with all their considerable might. And sure enough, although Eva Mendes probably does the performance of her life.................
I ask for so little, and boy do I get it.
Nah; it was pretty much what I expected, although the "Riders from the storm" theme was a little over the top.
