friday night the movie 'ghostrider' came out...and friday night i went to see it! i was anticipating it for a while now, i had the flame-engulfed cycle on my computer screen, and the promo movie poster on my refrigerator! well, i liked it. not loved it, but i did enjoy it! my daughter's word for it was maybe accurate enough...hokey, she called it. but it did have enough entertainment value that you were interested to the end. well, i was! my other daughter went to see it with her boyfriend, and he fell asleep apparently, and she was texting us, "this movie sucks!" during the movie! i loved the look of the flame-engulfed ghostrider on the movie, and i liked the actors in it...nicholas cage, eve mendes, peter fonda and sam elliot. (and the guy from 'knights of prosperity' that i still don't know his name!) the girl that they got to play eva's character when she was young, was a dead-on, great casting!

while we were waiting for the movie to start, and watching the promos for upcoming movies, they played a trailer for the next 'fantastic four' movie! how fantastic is THAT! i think i have to make some room on my refrigerator for that poster! i loved the first one, and looked forward to it with much anticipation, much like 'ghostrider', and was totally thrilled when i saw it! i want to see the 'bridge to terabithia', too. my son read that book as a kid, and really liked it. the promos look great, and the movie just seems to have a feel that the effects are going to be amazing.

Lordy, I can't wait for the day that one of mine is text messaging me from a movie date!
As for the movie, I'm so behind in that regard, maybe in 6 mos or a year I'll be back here typing "yeah, that movie was...."

My 14 yr old daughter saw "Terebithia" today. Said it was surprisingly good - and it made her cry. (The promos are apparently somewhat misleading about the real gist of the movie, but it is supposed to be worthwhile, from what I hear).

".....my other daughter went to see it with her boyfriend, and he fell asleep apparently, and she was texting us, "this movie sucks!" during the movie! " I had a good laugh reading that one :)

i'd planned to see ghostrider this week, but then i started reading lukewarm reviews. looks like one of those fun movies that might also annoy me. :D maybe i'll wait for the DVD.... but i do like nicholas cage as that type of character.
