Flaming Fondue

Saw Ghost Rider. How do I describe it? Well, if you've read the title of the post, you know how I will. The movie was like a stinky cheese: tasty and enjoyable but too much and you get tired of it. Also, if you think too hard about the fact you are eating mold, it loses its appeal.

Nick Cage obviously was having a ball and you can catch his enjoyment. Eva Mendes was horribly wooden. I love Sam Elliot in any cowboy type role so he was great. Just having Sam Elliot speak in his wonderfully gravelly voice gives points to a movie. The rest of the cast were forgettable. The villains of the movie: Blackheart and his 3 henchmen, well, how do I say this? When they appeared together on screen, in their long coats - Blackheart standing straight on to the camera, the other 3 in 3/4 profile - TBIT leaned over and whispered "Demonic Boy Band" causing me to have to muffle my gleeful outburst. From then on, every time they were on screen, I giggled.
The special effects were decent, the plot was muddled and predictable, the humour was at times, very clever and at other, juvenile. The film was fun and forgettable: a solid "B" movie. If I were a 12 year old boy, I would absolutely love it.

I wonder what songs Blackheart and the Demonic Elementals would sing?

It was worse than stinky cheese, it was stinky blue cheese! It goes to show that even an A-list celebrity like N.Cage can go head first, downwards..
