    Why there aren’t flaming hookers in Ghost Rider 2

    In addition to checking out the new Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance footage screened at New York Comic Con, io9 had the opportunity to chat with Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

    The guys told us about fiery mining equipment, the supervillain Blackout's new look, and the hellfire ladies of the night who didn't make the final cut.
    Good read.

    BLU-RAY REVIEW: DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT | CHUD.com

    What this really is, is more of a B-movie than anything else. Everything feels ultimately very low budget, especially where creature designs are concerned. There’s an early scene in which a werewolf transforms and it’s a classic “one second the camera is on him, the next he’s wearing a mask” type of deal with a little bit of CG transforming thrown in. I don’t think it’d be a reach to find a better werewolf mask at your local Halloween store. There’s also a scene in a sort of chop shop for zombies looking for replacement limbs, and the set that was used is very bland and under-decorated. It’s supposed to look makeshift and low-key, but it just comes off as uninteresting in design. It’s supposed to be funny, of course, that Marcus becomes fitted with a black arm because that’s all that was available in this shop. But really it’s a testament to the often lame humor that this film displays.

    It’s not a great film, and it’s not an outright bad film. It’s in that grey area in-between, in which it’s a film I can recommend if you want to watch something occasionally funny and goofy with a fairly neat final creature fight. Ultimately, it’s a shame more love was not bestowed upon what seems like truly excellent source material. In the end, it plays like a giant episode of Buffy or Supernatural or some other genre show. And not one of the best. But that being said, maybe someone ought to turn this into a TV series, where it might get to shine.
    If you rent this with lowered expectations you will be surprised by how fun it is. Not folding water or anything but, like the article says, an enjoyable b-movie.

    It wasn't, and it's been done. I really don't see a need to re-do it at all. The Brandon Lee movie was virtually a perfect adaptation of the ORIGINAL source material. Everything else after that has been crap, and will continue to be crap. Even the comics that came after are crap. That's cause J. O'Barr is kind of a kook.

    Really? It's been ages since I read them, but I remember liking the first two minis that came out that had Alex Maleev art. But maybe that was what I liked about them.

    I like the original film ok, but I don't think it's anything special.

    At this point, I'm pretty amazed. You'd think people would just wait for the trade.

    I'm new to Watchmen. I never read the comics and I just saw the movie (Director's cut) a few weeks ago. To me, Watchmen were simply a bunch of corny looking second-rate superhero's that I didn't know at all. THE MOVIE WAS FREAKING AMAZING! It absolutely blew my mind and made me a fan for life. However, I don't know how a second would work. Rorschach should not be brought back to life and the movie shouldn't be made without him.

    EDIT: Ah just read the article. They would make it a prequel. That makes more sense. It had better be damn good if they dare do it.
