Two Marvel Screencaps

Firstly, Kelsey Grammer as the Beast:

I don't think it looks that bad, but I reserve judgment until I see him moving.

And what is purported to be the CGI-Flaming Skull of Ghost Rider:

Alls I can say there is, I really, really hope not. Hopefully this is a really early crack at it and it will be fixed and forgotten like that first shot of Wolverine swinging around the spike on the Statue of Liberty that was never seen again after the fist trailer for X-Men. Or, maybe it's just a hoax.

The problem is that the flames don't cast any light on their surroundings, magical or not, if you can see flames, they're probably generating light. Also, if they want to be realistic, you shouldn't see so much of the skull through the flames.

Whatever, I've already spent more time analyzing this picture than I meant to.

Okay, way late to the game on this, but, A: It IS casting light. I could see your complaint if this were in a darkened room, but there's enough ambient light to mute any shadow casting the flames might produce, and B: Huh? This is Ghost Rider, not the Human Torch. Unless you have no familiarity with the character, you should know seeing his Skull is just part of the character image. I'll add the fact that flame isnt opaque. Even if the skull was surrounded by 8 inches of fire, you'd still SEE the skull.
While I'll admit, letting them actually set fire to Nocholas Cage might have been more amusing, the effects in this movie were probably the best part of the entire thing.
