    Can't say I disagree with the Cage/Alba nominations…I'm floored, however, that Bloodrayne didn't win a single Golden Razzie. Incredible.

    Geez, FF-2 wasn't that bad. I'm pretty much alone on this, but I think the movie was okay. Doctor Doom was completely unnecessary, but otherwise it was a reasonably faithful translation of comics to film and it pretty much captured the spirit of the series. And there were no musical numbers; always a plus in a superhero movie.

      I'm with Mike on this one.Skip Doom, Reed's stinky bachelor party, really show us Galactus and it was pretty OK.

      I guess I'll be the voice of dissent here, and say that I thought FF 2 was absolutely horrible. I didn't mind the first one, but the sequel was laugh-out-loud bad. Doom on the surfboard, though accurate to the comics (I believe), was a bit ridiculous. And Reed's bachelor party? Oi. However, I did think it was a better film than Spider-Man 3.Oh, and Sal, the only reason Bloodrayne didn't win any awards was because that was the year Basic Instinct 2 was released.

    I for one ENJOYED Ghost Rider. Yes; Cage is too damned old to play Johnny Blaze. But other than that, it was an enjoyable movie for me. I hope they do a sequel. As for FF, I didn't make it through the 1st one. So the second one being bad, doesn't surprise me at all.
