As for the fans chanting "Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider" at the ceremony I wonder how many of them saw the film, and how many of them pulled an "IMDB" and condemned it because it seemed like the cool thing to do without seeing it. It comes out on DVD soon, I think it was way better than The Fantastic Four, but I really want to know HeadRazz's opinion when he sees it.

I'd have to agree with RAZZ on Elektra, being an avid fan of the comic book series. It wasn't even close to a faithfull apadaptation, and was utterly unimagintive and boring. She was  alot better done Daredevil (which I realize is not saying much)...

Well, three films most people particularlly didn't like were Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four, and Elektra, but I thought all three were pretty decent.

Response from Head RAZZberry: I must disagree with you on ELEKTRA (I thought for a comic book movie, it was too slow and boring). I'd have to agree, generally, on FANTASTIC FOUR ( although Worst Actress nominee Jessica Alba stank in it, the film itself was actually okay). As for GHOST RIDER, when we ended this year's 27th Annual RAZZIE ceremonies with a montage of possible 2007 contenders, a chant of "GHOST RIDER! GHOST RIDER!" rose from the audience, suggesting that many of our members (and maybe some of the press in attendance) disagree with you about Cage's latest effort...

After seeing Ghost Rider in Theatres I have to say the critics was just a tad hard on it. By no means will we see this in any major catagory's at the oscars's next year (Maybe special effects) but the film was actually very good. Nicolas Cage was not bad but should have been played by somebody just a little bit younger and more hair (They had a hair piece for him in the movie). It remained true to the comic series.

I've also heard the rumor that there getting ready to Green Light a second one as well, so stand by.

It wasn't bad, but it could've been a lot better. I didn't like the villains, because htey feel too immature, like for the teens to enjoy and they don't feel serious. I hope the extended cut will improve the original cut. I have yet to see Elektra's Director's cut. I mean, these cuts sometimes make a difference if they're good or not.

I feel in the case of Ghost Rider, the trailer was worse than the movie.  When I saw the trailers, it looked like the movie studios messed up another great comic book.  But, although the movie wasn't great, it was entertaining, a lot of fun, and kept much of the feel of the comic book in it.

I was watching this movie with my 16-year-old brother, and it wasn't really bad, but it wasn't really good at all. However, it was the first movie of 2007 to pass the $100 Million mark at the U.S. Box Office, finishing at $115.8 Million, and then it would be followed by 18 others as of now.

I liked it. I'll problably like "Next" as well. Much, much, much, much better than "Wicker Man".

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, I loved WICKER MAN, though admittedly for all the wrong reasons. When we showed the clip of Nicolas Cage in the bear suit beating up the lesbian Wickens, it got some of the biggest laughs in our ceremonies last Spring...

Those clips were funny.  Let's not forget, though, the clip of Cage whipping out a cel phone in the middle of the forest.    I WANT TO KNOW WHO HIS SERVICE PROVIDER IS!    Talk about a missed opportunity for product placement.    If he's gonna make a movie this bad, he might as well make a profit somehow. . . .

I have watched this flick recently and I can boil it down to four words:

"Comedy of the year"

Too bad it was supposed to be an action movie with horror overtones.

Seriously, who trained Mark Steven Johnson in how to establish tone, but he's piss-poor at it. Maybe he simply has contempt for super heroes. If so, then I wonder why he keeps making them. At least he doesn't have as much contempt for super heroes as Joel Schumacher and put nipples and a Prince Albert of the Ghost Rider or something.

Too bad Johnson didn't get the nod for writing and directing this crap, but Cage does deserve something for his work. He seemed like he was about to crack up while transforming.

But in the end, Ghost Rider suffers from being a character without any appeal whatsoever unless you're twelve and a bad ass dude with a flaming skull for a head floats your driftwood. For the rest of us, it's nearly impossible what direction they should have taken to make this thing better because just as an idea it's no good.

Ummmm ... money! Maybe Hollywood will grow a brain and have Christopher Nolan come in as a script doctor, because chances are the script is already flat-lining...

They are making a sequel because the first one managed to make money. I also saw the first ghost-rider and I though it was okay, but I admit it was a little stupid.
