Well, I recently watched Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and Woof! What a bizarre film that was! The first Ghost Rider was by no means an Oscar worthy film, but it had some fun visuals and Nicolas Cage seemed to be having fun in the role. Well, he went from having fun to just going nuts in the second entry. I still kinda like the Ghost Rider scenes (with the more charred out look to the hero and his bike), but Cage as Blaze in is human form was so over the top with his performance that the whole film seemed like a farce. Not to be outdone, the villains certainly had their fair share of chewing the scenery with their hammy performances as well. It's too bad, I think there is still a cool Ghost Rider film that could be made, but it's gonna be a while before audiences will be willing to take a chance on the character again.
