Trust me when I say that I’m trying to take this movie in the spirit in which it’s intended.
Because, I realize this flick is losing half of the nation’s critics right from the get go with its kind of irreverant style of handheld film making and in your face juvenile humor…
But I can’t help but feel like “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” missed the mark by being a little safe. It’s like they tried to infuse the “Crank” style into the film, but with a PG-13 rating, which thus eliminates a LOT of the “Crank” content. (The directing team, for those unaware, did both films)
Back from my day at New York Comic-Con. Got up yesterday at 5:00 am, got home at a little after 1:00 am. I used my own car, two trains, a cab and a bus to get there and back. We waited in line for about three hours out of the day, sat through numerous panels we didn’t care anything about, but at the end of the day, I got to get Stan Lee’s autograph, I saw unseen footage from the upcoming “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, presented by directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, got to see an awesome scene from season two of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” presented by the cast, and got to see an entire scene from next year’s “The Avengers”, a full 6 months before it gets released.
