Ghost Rider once again proves even cheesy Hollywood action can beat out horrendous Eddie Murphy comedies. Thank GOD. And I never thought there’d be a movie with a plot that was more shallow than Ghost Rider.

New up on the list is Number 23, taking second spot away from family favorite Bridge to Terabithia. NOTE: Be careful when taking kids to see this movie! It’s a family film, but has a very big twist ending some kids might not be able to take.

Reno 911: Miami debuted strongly for something that will probably get more appreciation than it deserves, but, aw heck, at least its a group of people trying to be funny, unlike

NORBIT which is a crime against humanity. Hey, Eddie, why not try playing ONE person well instead of 6 people AWFULLY. Jesus Christ, kids, I figured he’d learned his lesson after the Nutty Professor 2. Too bad America didn’t.

I don’t know anything about Music and Lyrics, but BREACH will certainly be an early contender for First Great Thriller of the Year (as if it was an award). As for the last three films I’ve hardly heard anything on them, but The Astronaut Farmer seems to be semi-interesting dramatic fair, dealing with a farmer who…you guessed it…wants to be an Astronaut. Hey, it’s the movies. It’s all about dreams, ain’t it?
