Ghost Rider (2007)
A classic example of style over substance, a usually negative criticism that works fine here. "Ghost Rider" is second tier Marvel, played fast and flashy.

The failing ... is it takes itself dead-on seriously. Frankly, it would be easier to think of this (lifting the finale from 'Casablanca') and other sequences...as comedic.

In a role which would have suited Bette Davis in her Baby Jane persona, Dench's psychotic Barbara is in contrast a layered and mannered portrayal.

Frogs (1972)
The concept alone will make one croak. Production values, however, are on the cheap side.
