View Full Version : Ghost Rider vs DareDevil (Theatrical Cuts)
12-01-2011, 02:57 AM
Two superhero movies directed by MSJ. Both were terrible in theaters but at least one of them had a rather decent Director's Cut (DD) so including that one wouldn't be really fair to the other.
I was just wondering, which one is more watchable?
Personally I'd go with DD because even the theatrical cut of it was rather entertaining due to outlandish acting of Colin Farrel as Bullseye along with some rather fun fight scenes (Excluding the WTF fight street fight between Ben and Jen).

I give it to DareDevil, if Ghost Rider's actions scenes were better it would be much harder to decide.

Strictly speaking TC's, then Ghost Rider is more watchable for me, visually it is superb, DC's, Daredevil takes it easily.

I'd have to say Daredevil.

Daredevil's theatrical cut added a lot of story to the movie. The GR Director's cut wasn't that good at all...with a movie that sorely needed more action, it didn't add a thing.
The supposed extended cut for GR is ******** and I wish I bought the TC instead. That said, I'd rather watch the GR TC than the Daredevil one. It's just so... lacking.

I bought the TC and the Director's Cut. I took the director's cut box and put the TC in it, and gave the the DC to a friend.

Ghost Rider makes Daredevil look like Oscar material.

Daredevil's DC is highly underrated overall. It really deserved a sequel. It wasn't a bad first film by any stretch. I also was very pleased with Affleck's Murdock. He didn't do a great job in that movie, but he also didn't do a bad job. The character itself is actually very nuanced in the director's cut. I like how they constantly have DareDevil questioning himself throughout the film. The exchanges with the Priest, "this one's for you Dad", and the whole "I'm not the bad guy" scene were really, really great. It was nice to see someone kind of explore the downsides of being a vigilante. Before Nolan took over Batman I felt DareDevil was the only film that explored this properly. It had a great origin sequence too, but I could've done without the voice over. I also think they did an excellent job balancing the light and dark elements. DareDevil just really needed some tweaking in the delivery, and a better Elektra. There's a subtle brilliance to the concept, story and script though.

Daredevil by a good margin.

Daredevil, I still don't think its as bad as people say its not perfect by any means but its not terrible. Ghost Rider's even watchable I think just neither would be considered good. I actually thought this was gonna be a film idea Ghost Rider vs Daredevil. Which I actually think could work.

Both movies weren't bad. They both had a good beginning, it just went downhill towards the end.
But I think Daredevil is better because it was less cheesey.
I SEE SPIDEY

Dare Devil wins because Ghost Rider had no redeeming qualities. Dare Devil still isn't a good film.

I'd go with Daredevil because it's director cut actually brought more to the film.
02-24-2012, 11:36 AM
I don't really consider one more watchable than the other because it's an extended cut (I enjoy watching both)....but the DD extended cut brought more to the story and actually greatly improved the original movie.
02-24-2012, 04:31 PM
Both sucked, but Daredevil was more watchable for me. And as others have mentioned Daredevil's DC is actually pretty good.
04-03-2012, 06:52 PM
Yep.. Both sucked. Daredevil sucked a little less.

I did not hate either movie, although I thought Ghost Rider was better. Just personal preference. I will say it is a great time to be a comic book movie fan! It's just awesome we have four comic book movies coming out this summer.

Is the Ghost Rider extended cut any better than the original?
Not really. Added nothing to the film. Stick with the theatrical cut.

How much more footage is shown?
I couldn't tell you myself. So here's something I found about the dvd.
Though largely reviled by critics, Ghost Rider performed well enough during its theatrical run to warrant this deluxe edition DVD, which adds nine more minutes to the feature and includes a wealth of extras that cover its production, as well as the Marvel Comics character's history. The deleted footage is a mix of throwaway detail (reporter/love interest Eva Mendes' investigation into the Ghost Rider's identity gets more screen time) and interesting character wrinkles (the reason behind Johnny Blaze's deal with Mephistopheles has a less-than-honorable side) that help in part to give the film some dramatic heft. But these will have less cache with viewers and fans of the film than the supplemental features, which cover the making of the film in broad but interesting detail. Two commentaries are provided, one from director Mark Steven Johnson and visual effects supervision Kevin Mack, and the other by producer Gary Foster; both are informative, but those with a taste for the technical side of moviemaking will find the former more valuable, as both men cover the production intricacies at length. The making-of featurette "Spirit of Vengeance" is actually three 30-minute documentaries which include interviews with the cast, production tidbits, and a eyebrow-raising bit of Nicolas Cage working through his own process of "becoming" the Ghost Rider (those that consider Cage an amusing eccentric will find these clips most enjoyable). A gallery of animatics show how certain scenes evolved from production sketch to finished special effect, but the most intriguing extra is "Sin and Salvation," a four-part documentary that traces Ghost Rider's comic book incarnation from his origin in the 1970s to the revivals and revisions of the '90s and 2000s. For longtime GR fans, this may be the most valuable extra, as it gives an excellent overview of the character, and serves as a reminder of what made him such a cult hit to those who may have been disappointed by this big-screen version. -- Paul Gaita
I feel like I wasted so much buying a 3 disc version.

I traded the DC cut I had to a friend for the original; and kept the Extras Disc , which was actually pretty good. Both GR 1 and 2 have good extras...there's at least some positive in both.
I can't even find the theatrical cut now. Or I'd own that and dump the extended cut.,

Re-watching GR for a review and boy it's painful...
