"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" reps a marginal improvement on the series' first installment and contains enough idiosyncrasies to launch it ahead of the moribund "Season of the Witch."
Last year, Kathryn Bigelow changed history by becoming the first woman to win the Academy Award for directing. But at the Spirit Awards, such women-centric laurels are business as usual.
While the dry martinis flow freely among hosts and guests alike in "Blithe Spirit," those libations do little to loosen up Michael Blakemore's classy but stiff Broadway revival.
