You do realize that Penn actually said that in 1999?

If you guys don't, I'll post a topic on This Means War, because, yes, like some other McG films, this got negative reviews.

Anyway, I don't know what to say about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Or should I say, True Capitalist Rider. I mean, okay, the pissing on fire joke may be over the top, but yet kick-ass, but still, I don't think we need another Ghost Rider movie after the first one. But then again, it is made by the same guys that did a great movie series, Crank, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
Pictures move, do they?

According to these guys, yes. According to these guys, claiming to speak for those other guys, no. Wait...I'm confused!

Since HeadRAZZ waited until mid-weak to make this forum, instead of making it on Sunday or Monday (there wasn't a forum last week, so he should have had the time), it seems he won't make one for THIS MEANS WAR. But you should still wait until tomorrow, just in case.

Here are some notes I made on this film:

1. The film is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who made the Crank movies.  At least its not Mark Steven Johnson.

2. The film's budget is $75M.  That's $35M less than the budget for the first one.

3. I can't tell if the character of Ghost Rider is motion-capture or computer-animated.  Last time, I think it was the latter.

4. My guess is that most of us are gonna wait 'til summer or whenever it comes on DVD so we can put it on our Netflix queues and watch it free of charge.  That's the most efficient way to see it.

If this film has lots of action sequences, then I believe people will go to see it (regardless of what critics think). So far this year critics have had absolutely no impact on the box office.

Of course a good number of those reviews also seem to be criticizing the plot (give me a break).

But will just have to see this coming weekend.

Current RT Rating: 12% based on 25 reviews. Doesn't sound too good!  

Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

That was what I meant by "oddly." It's like the "President Schwarzenegger" line from Demolition Man.

"With a weak script, uneven CG work, and a Nic Cage peformance so predictably loony its no longer amusing, the movie aims to be trashy fun but ends up as plain trash."

No argument, but Penn doesn't exactly have a lot of room to criticize anyone else. He may not be equally guilty of making pandering, big budget movies, but his sin is going after roles that are blatant "Oscar baiters." One example, him portraying Harvey Milk. It's not that he gave a bad performance, but he was getting Oscar buzz months before the film was released. Frankly, that was a case of the role, not the actor, getting the nomination. Peewee Herman probably could have received an Oscar nomination for that role. And Penn's filmography is filled with similar roles.

Yes. That also includes DEAD MEN WALKING (which I liked), FAIR GAME (I'm the only one who hated that movie) and ALL THE KING'S MEN (I'm not the only one who hated that movie).

No offense HeadRAZZberry, but maybe the reason Cage chose to do this role was because he figured it could give him a  better opening weekend than any he's had lately (not to mention the fact he's broke, so he's doing anything to get money). Even if it doesn't do great business, he was probably well paid.   

Personally I don't think he cares about "winning" Razzies.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: The reference to Cage taking this role because he wanted to "add a RAZZIE® to his mantle" was...a joke! 

GET IT?!?!?!?
