Want to see a very weird video of Nick Cage on the set of GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE

Hey folks, Harry here...

My good friend over at ComicBookMovies sent me a link to rather strange news broadcast showing Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze doing some archeological climbing, along with Idris Elba, Violet Placido and his stuntman Rick English.   All for GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE.   Now, I know, like you know...  how much the first one blew...  But I've heard really good things about this one.   That it is getting the kind of treatment that the first should've had.   I still wish that my favorite David Goyer script, which was his hard R rated horror GHOST RIDER had come to be.   Now, Goyer did do the story for this, although he did not write the final script.   And the directing team behind the insane, blissful CRANK series is directing - so Mephisto only knows what they've got planned for this one.   But you have to love this Turkish News Broadcast

    Nevadine/Taylor...

    by MakNeil

    Also did Gamer; and while it had the seeds of genre greatness present, they never did quite take root. They also did Jonah Hex, which, if there's anyone who has a good word for that film, I don't know who they are. Then there's David Goyer, who essentially wrote the same climax for Ghost Rider as he did for The Crow: City of Angels earlier, and is a bit of a hack. As much as I would like to see a great Ghost Rider film (a hard 'R' rating that emphasizes the horror. After all, this is the story of a guy that made a deal with the devil and got the short, thorny end of the stick–which is often the case whey you deal with the Devil) I don't know what to think about this). That being said, I am a bit curious about the swashbuckling dude with the pre-Wolverine claws scaling a wall then going all Matrix on a bunch of guys.

    Real Life Cage

    by Flummage

    His actual shenanigans as a nerdsome actor questing for the truth, tripceps and righteousness while perfecting the ultimate mad-eyed camera take are more interesting than man of his movies, really. I loved that TMZ-style clip of him last month, in some honour-or-death style shouting match in some bar somewhere. It's kind of glorious what he's turned himself into.

    The first GR wasn't that bad...

    by ChezKing

    It had its flaws like most superhero movies, but it still managed to be a very entertaining movie. The Ghost Rider himself looked perfect and the action was impressive and creative. Mark Steven Johnson is a good director but a poor screen writer. I don't think it deserves to be as criticized as it is. It may not be the definitive GR movie but it's definitely not unwatchable. I'm looking forward to the new one.

    by NinjaRap

    It was a piece of shit. I think my favorite part was when Johnny had to start eating burning cinders in order to get his energy back. Although the abusive-ex-boyfriend-turned-decaying-demon was pretty funny too. Still, it was better than The Crow: City of Angels, so it wasn't the WORST Goyer script I ever read.

    You may remember Dr. Arkın (Yes, Doctor!) from the infamous classic rip-off fest "Turkish Star Wars". He's starred in some of the most awesomely batshit crazy movies you'll ever see, and "Lionman" is one of his best! Seriously, track it down, you will not be disappointed!

    by Toruk_Makto

    Hard R, NC-17, make it fucking XXX for the all the good it will do. It's the gohrram STORY, it's the bloody CHARACTERIZATION. Ghost Rider has been around for a long time, so do a story about GHOST RIDER not some warped facsimile. Newsflash movie folks: you are not smarter or cleverer than the comic book authors. You never were, and you never will be. The only reason movies make more money is because a large part of the population are imbeciles who would just as soon stare at a screen than read... anything. You know what happens when an animator is brought on to animate a well-known character and they can't get the look right: They're fired. Do not adapt, do not adlib, you’re not ready for that yet, instead: TRANSLATE, I don't care what twit whines about it. You must crawl before you can walk, when you have proven you understand the bloody characters, their motivations, what makes them THEM, THEN you can improvise with your own ideas about what they should do next.

    David Goyer is easily one of the worst screenwriters working

    by IndustryKiller!

    I never want him touching a comic book franchise again. His incredibly by-the-numbers storytelling, hammer you over the head with theme, and weak dialogue make it unbelievable to me that he still has fans. Even the script to Batman Begins was terrible, the improvement when Nolan took over writing duties in The Dark Knight is impossible to overstate.

    by frank cotton

    it is the allnight show here on radio KALI, 6.6.6 on your IM dial, broadcast to you every night from the DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (yes, i know it's actually the far side, but DARK sounds cooler), and i am your host, frank cotton. glad to have you all here! you just heard SEX AS A WEAPON, PAT BENATAR, SEVEN THE HARD WAY (my favorite number, not lucky, mind, just favorite), THIS AIN'T A SCENE, IT'S AN ARMS RACE, FALLOUT BOY, INFINITY ON HIGH (you know, i don't just play these for entertainment), DOWN IN IT, NINE INCH NAILS, PRETTY HATE MACHINE, and MINE ARE THE EYES OF GOD, by CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, a NORTH CAROLINA band, off their album BLIND. maybe it's just me, but i think the names of some of these bands, the titles of some their albums, and even the titles of some of the songs might mean something. if only to me. the lyrics certainly do. we've some new features on the show tonight, but first up is the word of the day, and that is POWER. it figures prominently in this morning's rant/diatribe/speech/lesson, whatever you prefer to call it. more on that later, now, however, it is recommendation time - not just products anymore, no, we're also going to tell you what books and films frank likes...what, you don't care? well, too bad i'm tellin' ya anyways. just watched TRUE ROMANCE at the bro's house today, you girls might like him, he just left his wife after 18 years, having stayed with her for better then ten of those just for his daughter's sake. she's a beautiful girl, resembles her cousin RACHEL a bit, getting a little too spoiled lately, but that's the wicked witch's fault, and we'll save that for another time. he's not as pretty as frank (well, that's not true), but he is somewhat attractive. he'd not seen it, suprisingly enough. great film, lot's of good ideas to be gleaned from it. we also like KICK-ASS, and DEFENDOR, plenty more good ideas in both of 'em. more like that, please. frank, it's too quiet in here, if you get my drift. some PEARL JAM would do nicely, maybe REAR VIEW MIRROR, off VS, TERRIBLE LIE, NINE INCH NAILS, same as before, NAILBOMB, SUM OF YOUR ACHEIVEMENTS and 24 HOUR BULLSHIT, off POINT BLANK, and whatever else your little black heart desires. ladies, if you will, find the boys something to do, as this is another YOUR EARS ONLY deal. before we get to it, tho, frank needs a smoke, maybe a snack, and something to drink.

    fire the next salvo!

    by frank cotton

    and we're back! let's see...BALISONG makes some sweet butterfly knives, seen in KICK-ASS, mentioned previously on the show. and knives brings us back to where we left off on our last 'cast, where we were talking about all you wonderful ladies out there taking over the world. didn't think i'd forgotten, did you? you see, girls, i'm doing all this, the way i'm doing it, for a reason. that being, the guys are going to be very unhappy, especially with frank, when they finally realize what's going on here. at this point, frank is, to most boys and girls, just some dipshit who has actually hit on a brilliant idea that he can use to draw attention to his off-the-wall creativity, that is, using the fake radio show idea to try and sell his stories, and other (story-related) ideas. which is true - frank is broke, living with his mother, and working part-time delivering pizzas in a car she bought for him. we'll get to the whys and wherefores later, but suffice it to say, here and now, frank's life is in ruins. he had a great job five years ago, before he met the demon, troubleshooting mainframe software issues for a major bank. please, stop laughing, this is serious. i really did. forty grand a year, $1000 a month apartment, and a new ride every two years; everything BUT the girl, who, eventually led to my doom. i'll get to her in time. at this time, this is who i am (or at least appear to be) to pretty much any and all. another nut on the internet, mildly amusing, trying to make a buck. might even have some good product, believe it or not. this certainly is quite a story so far, isn't it? so here we are, and frank is telling you how to take over and fix everything. inevitably, someone, somewhere (i'm talking about the guys here, the ones who, essentially, run the world thru governments and financial institutions, and corporations and religions, the REAL oppressors, in the real world), is going to catch on, and start blabbing to the rest of the guys, that frank is up to something serious behind their backs, and the shit will hit the fan. this WILL happen. but, for now, it's just you girls, me, and the cat (female). and this is just crazy talk. a show. but what it really is, is what i've been saying from the start; it's a wake up call, that is mainly for the women of the world, because, let's face it, the guys are why everything's all fucked up to begin with. you know this - you've known this, pretty much, all along. the problem is, you've been trying to make your strides, your advancements, out in the open, in their faces. which is why it isn't working. they hate that shit. and they will string you along, give you an inch here, and an inch there, and let you think you are making progress. you are, but not that much. not nearly enough. and you don't know what to do, which is why i'm here, right now. you see, i'm half girl. really. most guys have got at least a touch, or a smudge, or an itty-bitty piece of girl in them, but frank has a full half. he's half everything; half-crazy, half-assed, half good, half bad. he is the mean between the absolutely fixed (extreme good/bad) and the infinitely variable (utter chaos). the reason the world is headed towards disaster is because it's unbalanced, overly male, and i am here to help you wonderful girls to bring it back to EQUILIBRIUM. seen it? it's a great film, and has some very good ideas in it. the thing is, it's wrong. in it's world, there's not enough emotion, and the answer is more. in the real world, there's TOO MUCH emotion, and the answer is LESS. your first impulse is to tell frank to fuck off, and quit listening. please, don't. the entire world is at stake, and we don't have the time for argument. if you will allow me to, i will explain myself and that statement, at length. all you stand to lose is a little of your time. but what you stand to gain is, if you will just listen with an open mind, and seriously consider as truth the things i will tell you, is EVERYTHING. we'll be taking a short SMOKE BREAK at this time, but the show will return directly. i sincerely hope you will see fit to join me.

    industrykiller!

    by Rob0729

    I totally disagree. The guy is very hit or miss, but he has written some good movies. Dark City, Batman Begins, Blade, and Blade II were good movies. I don't think the Batman Begins script was nearly as bad as you although I will say it was far inferior to The Dark Knight (But would that movie be nearly as good without Heath Ledger's performance?). It was great for 3/4 of the movie, but wasn't great in the end. He's written a lot of crap too like Jumpers, Blade Trinity, and Ghost Rider. I hold no hope that this movie will be good since the first Ghost Rider movie was crap (and Nicholas Cage will do any movie for the paycheck so you don't know if he read the script before he signed on). But I don't think Goyer is nearly as bad you make him out to be. He has shown with at least two of the three Blade movies and Batman Begins (at least in my point of view) that he can write comic book movies. Ghost Rider and Blade Trinity has shown that he can't write good comic book movies consistently. Five years ago, Goyer's name attached to a comic movie script would have all the fan boys salivating because "he knows how to write a comic book movie, just look at the Blade movies and Batman Begins". Now he is considered a hack. The funny thing is that his loss of credibility probably has a lot to do with his television missteps (Flashforward and Threshold) than some of his movie screenplays.

    by NoArrow

    I loved it. Seen it four times and I don't tire of it. One of the best badass action movies in some time...the montage and violence are really visceral. Gerard Butler at his toughest and most vulnerable. Amber Valetta and Kyra Sedgwick are hot. Michael C. Hall and Terry Crewes make great villains. Some of the best kills and one of the best climaxes I've seen in an action movie for some time. I recommend to all.

    Nicholas Cage is the classic case of missed opportunites

    by Rob0729

    Back in the 90s, Cage was poised to be one of the biggest box office stars in the world for the next 20 years. He had Oscar cred with Leaving Las Vegas. He followed that up with a string of big box office action hits like The Rock, Con Air (which although a bad movie is a fun bad movie), and Face Off. Then a funny thing happened. He started to take every crappy script that seemed to come to his agent. He is like Samuel L Jackson, but with a lower success rate of good movies. Some I can see why he took them. He did get to act for some big name directors (DePalma in Snake Eyes, Ridley Scott in Matchstick Men, Stone in World Trade Center, and Scorsese in Bringing Out the Dead). Some movies had big box office potential (National Treasure movies, Gone in 60 second since it was during the time where everything Jerry Bruckheimer touched was box office gold). But he also took a lot of movies that were nothing more than glorified made-for-video quality movies especially in the last five years or so (Season of the Witch, Next, The Wicker Man, Lord of War, Bangkok Dangerous). In my mind, the only two movies he has been in since Face/Off that have been really really good quality are Adaptation, Bringing Out the Dead, and Kick-Ass. I liked Matchstick Men, but I thought it was a flawed movie. Now that Cage has financial problems, does anyone trust any movie with his name above the title? If he wasn't picky when he had enough movie to buy mansions and islands that he can no longer afford to keep, how can anyone think he won't make movie choices based on the paycheck over the quality of film.

    I hate to be...that guy...but

    by TheMark

    Lets get real. Batman Begins--pretty fucking sweet. Everyone wants to say that Nolan 'fixed' the franchise by pulling some of the control from David Goyer, but he also FUCKING REMOVED BATMAN FROM A MOVIE ABOUT BATMAN. The Dark Knight, while a stellar film, is a shitty Batman movie. Seriously. Lets all put our dicks away for Ledger too--again, while an impressive performance, nothing about him screamed 'The Joker' to me. I loved someone's remark about Neveldine/Taylor or however they get credited--in regards to logic and how they should be directing Looney Tunes...and honestly, that sounds EXCELLENT. What makes them work for me is that they revel in the outlandish. Everyone is too busy creaming over realism in movies while I only go to see movies to see shit that I could NEVER see or do in my life. If I want to see boring melodrama that reminds me of my personal life, i'll stick to the IFC channel.

Bad guy knocks him back to being Cage. Bad guy hesitates before killing him for some reason. Cage turns back into GR and burns the bad guy, because Fire is a better element than Air or Earth or Water.

    N/ T, did not do Jonah Hex, for fuck sake.

    by Dr. Samuel Loomis

    They wrote the original story for the movie, intending it to be a long (around close to 2 hrs), brutal, R rated movie. After their draft of the script was put up during pre-production, the studio bumped heads with them and basically was like "Nah. Lets take this 2 hour long, R rated movie, cut it down to 98 mins and make it PG-13. Oh, and get these Neveldines and Taylors or whoever they are, out of my face,". So they basically kicked them off the movie, revised the script themselves and kept their names on the final cut. Which, in their case, was a good move because the movie was so horrible, that when fans wanted to turn their anger to someone for it, they turned it to the so-called writers of the movie. Who, on paper, happened to be Neveldine/ Taylor.

    it's morning in the real world, but here at the outer limits it is always the witching hour. sunday morning, to be exact, frank's day, and frank just told his mom, who's getting ready for church, about the SECRET weapon you girls will be using for your future overthrow of everything. he's hinted around to her about what he's up to, and she thinks he's just being frank, but, he finally got a positive reaction from her, today. and that's about as good of a stamp of approval as we're likely to get. frank's mom was a fed for almost forty years (and his outlaw ways were a major irritant), but she worked hard, and was enjoying her retirement right up until i got locked up. bad frank. what a pitiful excuse for a son. i have a lot to make up for. she also was a BIG SISTER, and her once little sister is now a Police Officer. please, DON'T call them pigs. some are, but MOST, are not. she also stayed with her husband, my dad, an alcoholic CHEATER (who, to his credit, never touched her in anger) for eighteen years, mainly for the sake of my brother and me. she finished raising him on her own. we turned out to be a couple of borderline losers, but that was our fault, not hers, and eventually, we both straightened our acts up, which i have to credit to her example. she's, like, the prototype for all of you - she's not afraid to get her hands dirty when necessary. she's 5'2", maybe 110 lbs soaking wet. she was damn good-looking, back in the day, and a sharp dresser. she shot a perfect score with a 9mm handgun when she was sixty-five (she can shoot well with BOTH hands), at her yearly qualification. she used to meet planes at the airport at 4:00 in the morning, all by herself, in the middle of nowhere, as part of her job. she once slapped yours truly across a sidewalk, and up a short flight of stairs. i was way more afraid of her, in my twenties, than i was of my dad, who scared the living shit out of me in my teens. she's tough. which is what you need to be. frank, let's have some music, i'm thinking SPAWN, by SILVERCHAIR/VITRO, from the film's soundtrack, FF=66 by JAWBOX, off FOR YOUR OWN SPECIAL SWEETHEART, maybe some RISE AGAINST, possibly LIFE LESS FRIGHTENING from SIREN SONG OF THE COUNTER-CULTURE, and THE GOOD LEFT UNDONE followed by PRAYER OF THE REFUGEE off of THE SUFFERER & THE WITNESS. after that, it's your call, just remember to write it all down, for a change. i believe we were talkin' 'bout knives at some point, and i'd like to add a few words on that subject. no female should go ANYWHERE, ever, without some kind of potentially lethal protection. i don't care if she's with her biker/bouncer/half-back boyfriend, or Marine husband, or in a fucking tank; she should have her own, personal and familiar, self-defense accessories. she really ought to have a nice compact 9mm handgun, like a KAHR K9, or a STAR FIRESTAR, something that would fit in a small purse, loaded with hollow-points, giving her enough firepower to take out three, or, maybe even four, miscreants. ever seen MS. .45? if not, maybe you should, real soon. do you know why, guys like handguns? because it's the POWER, of the angel of fucking death, right smack-dab in the palm of their hands, that's why, but, they aren't very lady-like (as if), so for standard operating equipment, we'll be sticking to knives and stabbing weapons. consider handguns a HIGHLY DESIRABLE, maybe a-kind-of a, a, well, a, a-little-bit-further-down-the-road-kind-of option. can't get a knife thru security checkpoints/metal detectors? well, here is where i come in handy. how about a nice, over-sized, solid stainless steel pen, with a teeny-tiny little point? get mine? in prison, they would strip-search you for weapons, and when they were done, give you a big ol' pointed plastic pen. WTF? does that make any sense? yes, it does! it levels out the playing field inside, so everyone has at least SOMETHING they could use in a fight, and thereby, a fighting chance at survival. which is what we're talking about here. the survival of you young ladies individually, and of the human race as a whole. 'cause it is getting damn near close to closing time, if you get my drift. hey! how about one of those big, long, three-sided, hard plastic pens? you could stab the shit out of someone with one of those! sorry about the dead air there, i had to run outside for a quick smoke, and pick the cigarette butts up, out in the yard, that my sorry, worthless, alter-ego frank pitches out of the windows at night. the NO SMOKING sign stays on permanently, inside the station, so, if you want one, it's either, hang your head out one window or another, or go entirely outside. she makes the rules, folks, i just enforce 'em. back to the show. frank RECOMMENDS: PENTEL writing instruments, as well as CROSS, MONT BLANC, and many other fine manufacturers of quality writing, aw, hell, just get some frickin' pens! who is going to take a pointy, well-made, and very attractive, yet potentially very dangerous pen/weapon away from such a lovely, young, thing as yourself? in the right hands, say, of some macho, asshole, pumped-up steroid-abusing dude, that COULD be a terribly dangerous weapon, but in your dainty little hands, why, who would ever even think such a thing? well, me, for one. and, if you follow me, you, for another. how about NAIL FILES? a nice, razor sharp edge, on one side or the other, could come in handy in case of an emergency! frank would like to interrupt himself now, for a couple more, maybe even several, product, or book, and/or film RECOMMENDATIONS. take it away, frank! hi ladie's, frank cotton here, your host with the most, say, hey, frank, those pills kick in yet? the ones you, oh sorry, you weren't supposed to hear that. yet. books, you say, there, dude? ok, how about THE ILLUMINATUS! TRILOGY: THE EYE IN THE PYRAMID, THE GOLDEN APPLE (hey, shit, this is weird; frank once, a long, long time ago, applied for a dishwashing position at a store called THE GOLDEN fucking APPLE. right here in frank's home town, in our galaxy, not quite so far, far away. this is just too fuckin' weird, man, hey, dude, am i trippin'?), LEVIATHAN, by, hey, frank, i thought you told me you wrote those? well, it says right here on AMAZON.COM that a couple of guys named Robert wrote it. right fucking there, frank, you lying son of a - HEY, don't you even THINK about goin' there frank, unless you want some of this! we don't cotton to that kind of expression around these here parts, and you know that, so, just settle the fuck down, frank. please. if you don't mind, sir. thank you. man, i need to take a leak.

    I have a hard time believing that was Nic Cage's idea. He has a Ghost Rider tattoo. Guy had to get his Ghost Rider tattoo covered up in order to play Ghost Rider. He's not suggesting dumb shit like "let's play the guy quirky" least I hope not.

    Johnson's Ghost Rider film

    by David_Denmans_Beard

    was a fucking travesty. I gave the man a pass when I saw the director's cut of Daredevil but when I walked away from Ghost Rider, I'd be standing in line to crucify that bastard. Cage's involvement and the whole jellybean bullshit didn't help either. While I'm at it, the vocal effect for Ghost Rider was shit too. To think that Dane Davis was handed awards for his work and then churns out non-imposing, screechy sounds like that is too fucking rich.

    I found the first ghost rider movie wasnt bad if....

    by qjinx

    you play it with the sound off and as a background movie to whatever you had to do around the house that day..... glancing over at the tv to see ghostrider on fire kicking ass every 15 or 20minutes made for a much better ghost rider movie experience, IMO

    I hope Turkish Ghost Rider is being filmed simultaneously.

    by Royston Lodge

    It would be a fine addition to the long tradition of bugnuts crazy Turkish comic book movies!

    Cüneyt Arkin FTW

    by DocPazuzu

    Absolute badass. A Turkish combination of Bruce Lee, Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson. Seriously, go to YouTube and watch pretty much any clip from his 1970s and 1980s movies. They're as hilarious as they are awesome.
