I just watched the first Ghost Rider movie again. It was on TV and I was bored. Last time I watched it was when it first came out, but I was too young to realize it wasn't that great. Here's what I noticed now.
1. It's too cheesy. Cheesy dialogue, cheesy plot, cheesy acting, cheesy everything.
2. Nicholas Cage is too old. I love Nicholas Cage as an actor (screw you Josh), but he was just too old for an origin story. I actually think it could've been better if it was about the younger JB and the younger... Eva Mendes.
3. Just terrible. The plot was obvious and unoriginal. The acting was really bad, especially from the villains. The dialogue was just sad.
One thing I really noticed was that no matter how bad the movie was, Ghost Rider looked Awesome (I intentionally capitalized it). The movie was pretty boring, but got exciting when he became Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider's presence alone made the boring fight scenes awesome. In my opinion, a new Ghost Rider can easily work. Ghost Rider alone made the movie worth it. Imagine him in a good movie. Maybe even in Avengers? You know, instead of Quicksilver.
What do you guys think? What should a reboot be like?
Note: Excuse any spelling errors, I'm on my phone. Also, I didn't put much thought into this.
