Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance

2011Spirit of Vengeance

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Ciarán Hinds and Idris Elba

Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, they make a part 2. I’d call it a sequel but I have a uncomfortable feeling that with the way they ended this movie there just might be a third train wreck coming to a theater near you.

Spirit of Vengeance takes place in Eastern Europe. Johnny Blaze (Cage) is called upon help protect a boy from the devil.

This movie is crap. Pure and simple. I am not sure why any fool even put money on this script, unless is was Cage and he had the cash just lying around gathering dust.

Cage did, yet again, prove that he can be the best whacked out dude on fire with his Tasmanian devil-like wails and screams as he rides his flaming bike. His acting was on par with the last ghastly Ghost Rider movie. Should we have expected anything different?

Seriously Nic, pull your head out.. you can do so much better!! Sweet Jeebus!

The boy, Danny (Fergus Riordan), he was alright. I haven’t seen him in anything else that I can think of so that’s all I can say.

Roark, (Ciarán Hinds), the devil is the devil…

As for the rest of the actors.. BLECH. I could have done without them… all of them.

I would not recommend this movie unless you are a die hard Cage fan. And seeing how I am, I took one for the team and watched this nightmare. As I am sure I will if there is another one.. ugh.

Two great big steaming piles of poo for this flick.

Trespass

2011Trespass

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Cam Gigandet, Liana Liberato

Trespass, my first movie for 2012… what a bomb.

This time it wasn’t just a crappy script, it was also crappy acting. I felt like they had pulled the gunmen off the street and said ‘here, act’ and let them do whatever. Horrible, horrible, horrible. And what gunman brings his coked up girlfriend along to a home invasion? I mean really, who does that?!

Nicole Kidman’s performance was almost unbearable. I have never seen her acting so… half-assed. Usually if her movies suck it’s because of a bad script or bad directing, this time, there was that and bad acting. What came over her?! Bad Nicole! Bad, bad, bad!

Nic Cage… Well, you either love him or you hate him. I personally love him. He’s pretty consistent in his rolls so I know what to expect going in. I think the last time he really rocked the silver screen was in 2009 in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans. Now that was the Nic Cage we all would love to see every time.

Anyway, unless you want to watch a movie with crappy acting and approximately 85 minutes of continual screaming I don’t recommend Trespass… at all… nope… thumbs are way down…

There aren’t even any good explosions…

Season of the Witch

2011

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman and Claire Foy

I liked this movie. I don’t care what the critics had to say, they can keep that snobby stick up their unimaginative butts.

The ONLY problem I had with this movie was toward the end with the Monks, but I can’t tell you what it is because I don’t know if you’ve watched it or not. If you have, then you probably know what I am referring to.

I do like watching Nic Cage, he is pretty fantastic, however… The Sorcerer’s Apprentice was not so good. At least not for adults. Definitely a kids movie.

There were a whole lotta battles going on under the name of the church, and I think that if God wanted them killin’ all those non-believers He would have done it himself. Simple mass destruction. Silly medieval folk.

I would say this is a recommendable flick.
