Well...#1 at the box office, statistically speaking SOMEONE besides me and my son had to see it!

I didn't go in expecting too much, so I was happily surprised to find myself liking the movie. There were some shortcomings to be sure (not enough character exposition for my liking) but they did a decent enough job with the materials they had.

The only short side we came away with so far is that we can't find the cool version of Ghost Riders in the Sky that Spiderbait did for the movie...my son REALLY wants that on his MP3 player.

Anyone else see it? Thoughts?

I haven't seen it...yet. Ghosty has been one of my favorite characters since Ghost Rider Vol. 2 came out (Danny Ketch version, part of the "new" Fantastic Four with Spidy, Hulk, and Wolvie).

It took it $44.5 million for #1. Click Here (news.yahoo.com)

My wife's friend, Michelle, and I went to see it yesterday. My wife has issues with walking corpses on film and so we went to preview it for her.

Michelle liked it more than I did and she's not really familiar with the comic. Overall, I guess they did a decent job, but there were some plot holes that we couldn't figure out.


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read

Slade told Blaze that the graveyard is hallowed ground, so he'd be safe. Blackheart later ended up knocking off a priest in a church?

Was there a point, besides giving a nice desktop wallpaper shot, to having Slade ride with Blaze at the end? He could have given up the gun before they left, right?


I thought it was okay, on par with the b-level Marvel flicks like Punisher and Daredevil (both of which I really liked) and better than Elektra by a mile. But with FF2 and Spiderman 3 coming up in the next few months, I've got better to look forward to from the company.

And while there's no post-credits scene, there was one in particular that got a good chuckle out of me, and I presume that it was done intentionally:

GR is on the roof of a building and uses the chain to snag the landing struts of a helicopter. As he's reeling it in, he says "Get over here!"

I think it's because Blackheart and the other fallen angels could step onto holy ground but Mephistopheles couldn't.

Decent for what it was, but Nic Cage's ticks irritate the crap out of me.
