Big Summer Movies Part 3. (Part 8)

And lastly....

Fantastic Four (2015)

Franchise recap-

The rundown.
  • Bleh. :-(
  • The Tim Story ones are actually better! 
  • I mean really, say what you want about Tim Story, at least he loved and respected the comics.
  • The effects are good, the acting is good, but the tone is a fucking downer. Even a horror movie can have humor, fer chrissakes.
  • Believe all the behind scenes rumors that were red flags to this being bad. It's all up on the screen.
  • It's not horrible though, you will be entertained in spots. It's got good parts.
  • It's not movie theater good though. Wait for your home video method of choice. 
  • Ant-Man kicks this in the dick.
  • Speaking of that, I may just have to see it again to antidote this.

So, overall, not horrible, not fun, just...bleh.
If only one movie a year came out, by all means you'd have to watch this, but there are better choices.

Ah, well, glad I saw it.
Critics have been brutal, but they hated "Human Centipede 3", and I loved that.
Needed to see for myself.

And, that's the end of summer.
Flew by too fast. :-(

Up next, the big recap.
