In Defense Of… The 2005 & 2007 Fantastic Four Movies

TLOTA: I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own & some of yours and welcome to another edition of “In Defense Of…”(Show pics of maligned pieces of pop culture while the fanfare from the Olympics  play and James comes up after Vanilla Ice slides back and his right hand thumbs up and the words “In Defense Of…”  before cutting to Fan4Stic as James does a voiceover.)

TLOTA(Voiceover): Oh yeah Fan4Stic! A movie so horrendous in it execution that it surprised me that it lasted as long as it did in the theaters and it reminded me of one thing I never thought possible but for me is true!. (Cut to James physically)

TLOTA: That the version made a decade earlier and it’s sequel starring a cardboard cutout of an actress, Vic Mackey from The Shield, The man who would be Captain America in the MCU and the guy who was in the sequel to the Live Action 101 Dalmatians movie was actually the best out of all the attempts of bringing The Fantastic Four to the big screen! (Cut to clips of the 2005 Fantastic Four Movie as James does a voiceover)

Are the two movies starring Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd & Julian McMahon really worth defending? Find out Here

    Well, the first film in 2005 was … okay. They didn’t get Doom’s character right, making him more like Norman Osborn than the Victor Von Doom of the comics. But it was still okay.

    Rise of the Silver Surfer, on the other hand, is one I fell asleep while watching and awoke to find that Galactus was … a cloud. I just groaned and turned away from it.

      I hear where you are coming from but after watching Fan4stic, I found more to like and yes the changes made to the characters and Origins were irritating but when you make adaptations you change somethings, you and I understand that but let’s be fair “Rise Of The Silver Surfer” was dead in the water anyway

    I can agree with at least the 2005 film on a guilty pleasure stand point. After that, let the rage riffs flow from reviewers who wanted something better. I didn’t even find anything personally wrong with the follow up film for being at least being what it was. Crash grab and such else. Though, boring is not something I want from a hero flick. As far this take of yours goes, I found fun and neat to see how they played out for you. Not much else, but really, nicely done.
