Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Last night I went with some friends to see Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. I know what you're thinking, why would I even bother. Well I love terrible movies but despite that I found myself thinking that I should talk about the CG in this film. I actually thought it was incredibly detailed and that the Ghost Rider model itself was nicely textured and modeled. It really looked fantastic. If you haven't seen a trailer here it is:

The Ghost Rider model itself looked fantastic. The skull and flames looked unbelievably realistic and lifelike. I know what that sounds like but just follow me. The transformations that Nick Cage went through seemed seamless. Even the vehicle transformations looked like monstrosities from hell. The CG team put in a lot of time and effort into this film and it really shines through. My friends and I came out of this film commenting that surprisingly we hope this film gets an Oscar nod in visual effects next year.

I know what this sounds like, but I think you should give this film a chance. If not for the hilarious Nick Cage moments, but for the CG itself.
