Default "Ghost Rider"...needin' a cultural exorcism?

Is anybody actually going to see Ghostly II? I mean, what significant powers does this character have? Making good on a threat to incinerate the marshmallows-on-a-stick some unsuspecting someone is holding over his head? Go ahead, try and talk me out of 7.25!

I've never been a big Nicolas Cage fan, and don't think HE has been relevant for a few years now.

After the first Ghost Rider there is no way I will bother seeing GR2.

Ghost Rider from the comics was badass IMO. He took Galactus down single handedly. But the movies, well, lets say they really aren't well thought out.

Ok so I like Nicholas Cage and I thought the first Ghost Rider was quite good, but OMFG what the hell were they thinking with the 2nd one. Had the feeling the movie contradicted itself from start to finish. Plus how crappy was the bad guy, devil what ever he was cause he a different actor from the 1st. Deffinatly up there with the worst movies ever made.

Default Old-time comic to Big Screen = no comprendo

Let's face it. Ghost Rider is a weak character. He was a terrifying anti-hero, at first, but other characters were developed who were just as dark.
Stan Lee and the Marvel Powers That Be had to give old Flame Head some kind of powers, aside from his Penance Stare (yawn), effective on humans, but water off a duck's back to any demon nemesis. Then suddenly his chain had some weird powers. Am I missing anything? Movie makers are threatened with horrible deaths by fanboys/girls to prevent too much alteration to a character's appearance, powers, etc., to retain the original characteristics of the character. However, given the time period of the character's conception, the sometimes weak aspects of the character's powers, just any super comic hero will not fit very well onto the big screen. So, at least in the case of G.R., SOME ALTERATION IS NECESSARY, if Cage insists upon trying to make him a bonafide box office draw. 'Nuff said.
