Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, one of my personal favorite unusual comic book super heroes is Ghost Rider. The Spirit of Vengeance haunts the supernatural to protect the world of the living. Possibly one of the absolute scariest super heroes in comic book history. Ghost Rider recently got added to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show although I highly questioned it. Bottom line Ghost Rider really needs his own Netflix show. In fact if it were being done as soon as that show comes out. I would drop everything to watch the entire season that's how badly I want it.
Ghost Rider (2007)
This movie is one of the biggest disappointments among Marvel movies. Everyone agrees this movie was poorly done in so many ways. Nicholas Cage was not right for the role of Ghost Rider. Blackheart is hilariously done wrong in this movie too. First off his appearance is really off & not even scary in the slightest. Second the way he went about things is off. In the comics, Blackheart would attempt to corrupt heroes & goes all out in fights. Also no mentions of the realm where he's at his most powerful anywhere in these movies. In this movie, Blackheart flat out uses people's darkness to kill people. Very similar to how Ghost Rider's penance stare. Also this version of Ghost Rider isn't suppose to have penance stare. No that honor belongs to his brother Daniel. Mephisto's name is horribly off now spelled as Mephistopheles. For the record Mephisto was one of many hell rulers not the devil as this movie portrays him to be. Still I am happy with Mephisto's portrayal in the movie. Honestly this isn't better than the live action Spawn movie. At least there I could name some scenes I really enjoy including those with Violator. This movie is an insult to not only the character but also to Ghost Rider fans in general.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)
OMG this is one of the absolute worst Marvel movie sequels. Ghost Rider; Spirit of Vengeance isn't a good title for a movie. Spirit of Vengeance is another title the character often gets called by. I'm guessing they couldn't pick a better title for this horrible movie. They really tried making Cage looking like insane in this movie. Who doesn't remember the part where the kid asks him about how does Ghost Rider piss lol. Sadly that's the only part of the entire movie worth mention. Yes it doesn't have anything to do with the plot but at least it is enjoyable. I can't believe they further insult us by renaming Mephisto to Roarke. Who the hell is Roarke in Marvel universe anyway? Honestly just for the love of God name him Mephisto like in the comics morons. Of course let's talk about one of the characters this movie really got wrong Blackout. Depending on the original or second Blackout who has very clever differences. This movie really didn't do the character justice. Let me explain the original Blackout uses darkness in many ways. The second Blackout can use most forms of light along with darkness. This version also is part demon making him more super powered over the original Blackout. This version of the character is vulnerable to sun light. Guess what in this movie, Blackout decays everything within seconds of touching anything except Ghost Rider. Also this version was dying that accepted a deal from Roarke to get revenge on Ghost Rider. Yes I am aware some of that is confusing but this movie as a whole is one gigantic mess. It so bad that I really don't want to talk about it anymore. It is amazingly they allowed this garbage to come out.
Now although the ranking in this blog is obvious I still have to do this.
