Are you familiar with the song Crash and Burn by Savage Garden? The song ideally discusses a theme of togetherness for good or for bad come what may. Nicolas Cage did not learn the first time with GHOST RIDER back in 2007 although co –star Eva Mendez did. Instead, the action-hero (of the yester years) […]

I have been a fan of the trilogy since the first movie back in 1999.
