It’s due out in January 2010 in the US. No Australian release date yet.

Movie Review: Ghost Rider

Ghost RiderGhost Rider (M)

Starring Nicholas Cage

Wow. That was a mess. Bad acting, bad dialogue, bad CGI, and a plot that doesn’t make any sense. I knew there was a reason that I’d held off watching this one. So how did this all go so terribly wrong?
