Not sure what the theaters are like around your way but it sounds similar in price point to me.
$17=IMAX 3-D
$14=Real 3-D
$11=standard 2-D evening show
$8=standard 2-D matinee show
$7= anytime senior/military show


I saw Ghost Rider SOV for $8 and felt like it was well worth that price point. I would've felt ripped off at a 3-D price point. So if you have some pricing options such as this then I think you'd get your $8 worth out of this movie.


As for the blue flame that is meant to visually distinguish the "demon/angel" that is bound to Danny Ketch vs the orange flame for Blaze/Zarathos. So in the course of the movie I'm not sure why they went for the blue flame, is it not Zarathos now bonded to Blaze? Just one plot point that isn't mentioned. If you don't know the flame color has significance than as just a viewer of the film I don't guess you'd feel there is a problem.

I agree about the issue regarding hit by grenade in first fight is a problem for GR, but hit by a 'bunker buster' later only phases him.

Just got back from seeing it. Yes, late to the party.

What I take from the flame color in the movie is that the spirit he's bonded with has somehow been at least partially redeemed. The red flame was the psycho who was addicted to giving punishment. Blaze winning in the end freed the spirit to embrace it's more angelic "spirit of justice" side, hence the blue flame over the red one.

I am in love with this movie! The cut-away gags seem limited enough to break tension without killing the overall tone of the movie and the Rider bits were really well done. The "Death Miner" bit was jaw dropping.
Next up on Pimp My Jeager.

While it wasn't as jaw dropping perhaps I did enjoy the military style transport convoy being "Rider-fied" in the final act.

The movie had the standard 60% drop for it's second weekend. Despite 4 films opening wide this weekend it still managed to finish #6 this weekend. It's domestic total is now around $38m according to estimates and when international numbers come in on Tuesday will be over $50m worldwide. I'll update it with actuals later.

It's a fun film that I've seen twice now. It's not perfect but I really enjoy the last half of the film. It flows much better from the midpoint till the end. That alone was worth me seeing it again.

It has a bit of a Grindhouse feel to it that I found enjoyable as well.
