Movie Review: Ghost Rider




Such a shortage of cool shows lately. So finally (after buying the ticket one day in advance), I watched Ghost Rider(yay!).

Pros: Decent and smooth flowing storyline. Neat special effects. Good enough for ye olde comic book fan.
Cons: Ghost Rider is a bit too powerful.

Before the movie, we had a little discussion on how they will translate the name 'Ghost Rider' in Malay. We came up with 'Penunggang Hantu' and 'Pemandu Hantu', and had a lame humourous moment when the translation showed up on screen as 'Penunggang Motosikal Hantu'.

PB: You n family never seem to like any of the cool, critically acclaimed movies. Why is that? Only soppy romance is good?

Jonzz: Are Malay subtitles as bad as the Chinese ones in Singapore sometimes? Can be completely wrong meaning...

PB: some will hate it, some will like it.

LM: sigh, people get murdered everywhere. Not just in dark, secluded places. Robbers will chop u up in your house.

Chinkinin: If I watch an English movie, I read the subtitles for laughs.

PB: ???
