Ghost Rider, the concept of a guy riding a sweet chopper with his skull on fire and beating those he deems wicked is pulled off rather well, in my opinion. CGI is so-so, but hey, it's the action and idea that pull the film. Pretty good storyline too - not very complicated, easy to follow, although lacking a bit in depth. The devil's had better portrayals as well - Peter Stormare and Dave Grohl both did better jobs of it (and DG was a joke role, telling you something about Ghost Rider). Overall, a very cool film.

Heh, Ghost Rider. The character is awesome - the films, much less so. Nick Cage is far too old to play him - couldn't take him seriously either.

That film gave me what I wanted. Which was 2 ghost riders, riding side by side, to spiderbaits awesome cover of Ghost riders in the sky.

I didn't really need the rest of the film, I could've just watched that a few times

It's better than Ghost Rider 2 though.

I watched The Dark Knight Rises on Friday with some friends, and really enjoyed it. The only real weak link was Bane's voice was a bit muffled at times, but nonetheless, I think I have found something better than The Dark Knight, and the best ending to a Trilogy since The Return of the King, making me feel almost sorry for the next person that decides to bring Batman to the big screen. As mentioned in TDKR thread, it's better than The Avengers and contains epic action scenes, an epic storyline (although I can understand that some people thought the outcome was too predictable, I didn't as I have little knowledge about the League of Shadows in the comics verse - my knowledge limited to Arkham City and Batman Begins).

Oh, and the actors were superb. Anne Hathaway was a great Catwoman, and the actors were well-cast and although I think Miranda Tate's character could have been portrayed a little better, it was still epic. Joseph-Gordon Levitt was awesome in this as well.

Best Film of the Year So far. Go see.

Verdict: 5/5

Massive influx of movies in the last 4 days:

Ice Age 4: Similar to 3. Makes little sense and plagued by new, bland characters and a threadbare plot. Strung together by a few good laughs and diversions, but not really much of a film here.

Lorax: The art style is great, but this is another Dr Seuss film which is very loosely based on the original work. They could probably write a better film if they weren't trying to make 'The Lorax' and just stuck to their own characters. There's some good visual humour, and it's short and sweet, but there's nothing new or endearing to make this worth watching again.

Hot Rod: Caught this on E4. The Anchorman/Napolean Dynamite zaniness is hit and miss, but there were some really hilarious parts. Not sensational, but a great throwaway comedy.

Ted: Typical family guy humour throughout, and i was impressed at how well they worked the gimmick. The writing is very strong, and they wring every ounce of humour you can get from a talking teddy bear - from the juvenile to the satirically genius. Wahlberg is utterly fantastic, his back and forth with a CGI bear is a pleasure to watch. It slips into auto pilot near the end, but it's a very innovative comedy and well worth seeing.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm: If you were a fan of the 90's series of the Animated Batman, this movie is definately a must see for you. Great Acting on Mark Hamils part as the Joker, great story and beautiful animation. Classic and a must see!

The Tall Man - very "twisty" film, although I knew who the "Tall Man" was in 10 minutes of the film, many surprises before the end, a good film,I reccomend it ;)
