So I went and saw this movie last night, and I have to say, while I wasn't expecting a very good movie, I actually enjoyed myself.

don't get me wrong, this wasn't a good movie, it was corny, silly, and in some places downright retarded. However, it had a lot of funny moments, some cool effects, and was overal just entertaining.

Not something I will probably see again, unless it's on TV or somebody is going to pay for my ticket, but I still think it's worth a see if you're like me and a comic-book movie junkie.

The best part was where they tried to get me to believe Jessica Alba went to MIT, though the fact that she was "brainy" led to a scene with her in glasses trying to look nerdy, and good lord that's hot.

'Course I saw her in Sin City, but she wasn't nerded out, so she didn't have the nerd-girl hawtness.

I would recommend seeing this movie if you're notinterested in anything "goog" but you just want to be entertained bya movie with some moderately neato moments, effects, and humorous parts.

I think spidey is overrated >.> <.<

That being said, I liked it. And yes, every nerd there loved that scene ET(as well as the bridge one ;) ).

8/10 Not perfect, but still quite entertaining and worth a see.

i was a marvel devil whle the F4 and Xmen ruled the comic... but as per trailer i will stay away from this one... another sad pitiful exploit to try and copy the great ones originality by making an adept comic book movie... ( see catwoman or electra for similar reference) or Just see disneys The Incredibles... they all have more or less the EXACT same powers however it is more pleasing to the eye....

Wasn't very good IMO, but it was...ok. but that's all.

looks like the sort of film that goves comic book movies a bad name and makes everyone think comic book (movie) fans are dumb adolescents... :(

I think like catwoman and elektra i'll give it a miss on principle...

Perhaps this'll fail miserably and cause Alba to go topless in another movie in attempts to keep her career afloat.

..topless!!What movie!?!

Yeah, i saw Fantastic 4 the other night and really enjoyed it. It had funny parts to it, but i felt there could a bit more action to it. In the end it all culminated to one fightscene, and it wasn't wonderful heh. But if your up for some good one liners and some suttle adult humor, its definately a good watch.

and if you like jessica alba :p

I saw the movie the other day. It was all right, but I was never really into the F4 series.

You know, that's a good point.

Mr. Incredible = The Thing
Elastigirl = Mr. Stretchy :P
Violet = Inviso + forcefield
Dash = The Torch...just minus the fire (ie the speed)

I've seen most of the film during breaks. I think it's alright. I probably wouldn't pay to see it, so no problem. It's the typical summer flick.

Alba was hot.

You're on the internet, you don't need to see any crappy movie if you wish to see a certain actrice in several wardrobes...

But I do agree it is a very tempting feature.

I know spidey is overrated.


Anyways, BOT, Comix should stay the way they are. Superheroes are meant to be comic book material, not movies. There are tons of examples. Somebody take a look at the early Batmans and of course, Ultraman (will need searchy).

Well, i watched the first half of the 1994 Fantastic Four movie last night (which i don't think counts as being a naughty boy as it was never officially released). Rather silly... makes you remember a time when low-budget movies couldn't cover their weaknesses with CGI, and when not all film had to start with an action sequence. I'm half way through and they haven't actually DONE any superheroing yet :D

Jessica Alba has always been hot, but she's never been in anything good (well, cept sin city... but she hardly "stars" in that). What with teh interwebs and all i no longer watch bad films simply cos they have hot girls in them. (plus i left my teens :D )

I do like Ioan Gruffudd though, shame his first major US role is in a average x-men knockoff. (which to be fair the F4 always was, even in comic book form).

I always figured Alba to be like Depp, she could be dressed as a homeless person and we'd all still wanna ... yeah.

Hmm, it was pretty good. You know, enjoyable if a bit dumb. The acting is okay, not exactly the best, but I really had a good time. I saw it with my two little brothers and they thought it was GREAT, so that made it really fun. Plus seeing the influences of the Incredibles was cool. :)

I liked X-men and Spiderman 1-2. Batman begins is AWESOME, and the Incredibles rocks. :D

That Michael Chiklis guy annoys me ...I dont trust bald men damnit ! I know F4 has been around longer, but the whole thing reminded me of Ths Incredibles, which as a movie, was much cooler :D

Well, we all know that InsaneSith is never wrong, but its also clear that The Incredibles is better than Batman Begins. I think we might be at the start of a quantum paradox/end of the universe type situation...:eek:

PS/Although the incredibles characters were pretty much based off Fantastic Four, the plot was much closer to a few of the Elseworlds graphic novels (such as Kingdom Come (and sequel) and Dark Knight Returns) where superheroes have been banned/quit and are forced to return.

I cant remember acquiring that soft brown nugget of information in any academic or life lesson :p

anyways, is it to be automatically assumed that a F4 sequel is in the works... Are there any other cool villains in the 'F4 universe', coz Dr Doom was a bit of a tosser, in the movie at least :(

Well, he told me so, and if he is never wrong then it must be true. Logic see???

-------
Mole man!!!!!:
The team first put its abilities on public display when the subterranean Mole Man attempted to take revenge on the surface world by destroying Earth's power plants and unleashing an army of gigantic monsters to annihilate the human race. The Fantastic Four turned back the Mole Man's threat, unaware that greater menaces awaited.

Galactus!!!:
Perhaps the finest of the Fantastic Four's early victories came in the face of the fundamental force of nature known as Galactus. Only able to satiate his awesome hunger by depleting a planet's life-sustaining energies, Galactus had come to consume Earth. The FF repelled the ravager of worlds under the threat of an extraterrestrial device called the Ultimate Nullifier, powerful enough to eradicate even Galactus. In the process, the heroes liberated the alien's herald, the Silver Surfer.

On second thoughts maybe we should just forget it... :eek:

I thank you for alerting others to this still being fact. :)

But Batman Begins is a superior movie to The Incredibles because Christian Bale = awesome. While The Incredibles is right below it. Falling only by .1 of a point.

NEWSFLASH:
This is a ridiculous arguement. Batman Begins and The Incredibles are both great. While some think that one or the other is better doesn't matter; it's merely another point of view, which doesn't neccessarily make it wrong.

Fantastic Four is pretty good if you just want to have a good time without much depth. 3 out of 5. :)

It does if it is different to my point of view, because mine is right. :p

PS/ I really hate these movie threads, cos I love movies and talking about movies, but the film in question has never come out in the UK when you guys are talking about it, so all i have to go on is impressions from reviews and trailers. By the time i HAVE seen it and want to dazzle you all with my insight you have all forgotten about it and moved on to the next one. life is painful.:(

Tried to watch Wedding Crashers last night, but it was sold out... so i ended up watching this.
As an action movie it kind of sucked, with very few good action scenes and a very anticlimactic ending. The plot was pretty dull, as well as being kind of muddled, disjointed and badly paced. However as a comedy buddy movie between the Thing as Johnny Storm it was pretty funny though... :D

If I may share my story with you...

Got to cinema 20 minutes before film. Sold out, had to watch a different one.
Paid almost as much as i would for the dvd.
Sat through 20 minutes of adverts.
Then got a really obnoxious, in-your-face, "you may be arrested" anti-piracy advert.
Then got 15 minutes of trailers.
By now it was 55 minutes since i got to the cinema, and 35 minutes since FF should have started.
Then got a really stupid advert that actually started with
the cinema isn't the only place some people will be watching Fantastic Four this summer, some people will choose to download it. The film these people watch will be a lot smaller, with tinnier sound and maybe people walking infront of the camera" .. *shows clips of all the best bits of the FILM I'M ABOUT TO WATCH*.. "see it the way its meant to be seen. Cinema! Its the experience that counts!
(at which point I was thinking: why the hell didn't i stay at home and download this? And how may people in the audience have just been given the same idea?)
On the plus side, once the film started only one mobile phone went off, and no-one was chatting too loudly, or talking on their mobile, or throwing things... so it was a step up over the last few times i've been.

"Cinema, the experience sucks so bad that watching a tinny pirate download is more fun!"

Been there done that. A little while ago me, Pie and Pie's girlfriend went to see Hitchikers guide to the galaxy. As it turns out, an employee has reeled the tape on backwards, and were franticly working to fix this. After a 40 min wait, they just decided to give us a refund. It was then about 23:50. Now as we go back to the cashier to get our money, the moment it is our turn, they run out of money. That means we have to go there the next day to get the money. We later saw the movie at a friends who's brother had recently aquired it on DVD in Thailand...




Irony?
