I hope that the Fantastic Four sequel will be better than the first. I thought that one was OK, but there was room for improvement.

I'm really curious to see how this turns out. I've always thought the surfing aspect would come off a little hokey in live action.

For a second there I thought this was a leaked pic of a new Sideshow item announced in tonight's newsletter.

You are being too kind Tom. The first F4 movie was pretty bad. :emperor

I thought the first one was alright except for the anti-climactic final battle.

It'll be interesting to see the final product. I was not a fan of the first movie.

I thought this thread was going to be about a SSC announcement too. :lol

I had high hopes for the first movie, but was sort of let down... I sure hope Silver Surfer makes the difference in the sequel.

I also have my concerns about a fully CGI Silver Surfer interacting with a cast of humans. Digital characters inserted into live action movies have failed a lot more often than they have succeeded.

I can't be scathing enough in any post on any forum to accurately describe my disgust with that film. The director needs to have his scissors and crayons taken away. Permanently. Why they gave him a second chance, I'll never understand. :(

Marvel's only real goal is to pump out the comic-based movies while they're hot, collect the money and run. It's a terrible way to do business, short-sighted at best. The only way that comic-based movies will continue to gain solid box office draws is if people continue to recognize them as quality entertainment. Films like FF, X3 and Elektra do the exact opposite.

My advice to the studios? Take a cue from Raimey and Singer: Focus on the characters, and make the action fit the story. Doing it the other way around (a la Michael Bay) just destroys any hope of the film's longevity. Oh, and leave the cheesey one-liners and MTV-esque dialogue at the door.

I could go on, but I'll quit. Sorry.

I'll be curious to see how SS turns out, but I'm not loving the idea of him being a fully CGI character. I was hoping they could do a mixture of a real person with CGI tweaks.

I'm looking forward to Ghostrider & Iron-Man......... I hope they don't bollocks them up as well.

I thought FF1 was a complete failure in what could have been cool. Only positive was Alba to drool over.

The thing is...well, the wow factor for a silvery guy as a cool special effect will always go to the T-1000 from T2.

As we have become more disensitized to CGI, I just hope it looks natural enough that it doesn't distract from the movie. Something along the lines of Sonny from "I, Robot". Good CGI for a main character that wasn't distracting.

I went into it with very low expectations after hearing all the scathing reviews from the fans. OVerall I thought it was ok. I didn't buy the DVD though, so I guess it wasn't that good. I am really not so sure about this CG Surfer.

Just watched it. Not feelin it. Tough to get any acting or emotion out of a CGI flaming skull I guess. Tough to get acting out of Nicholas Cage though, so I suppose it's a perfect match. :lol

I went in with low expectations, and they were met with an even lower film.

Yuck, you couldn't pay me to watch that again. :sick

There's a very brief interview with Doug Jones, the actor who portrayed Abe Sapien and the taller of the Gentlemen in the Buffy episode "Hush" about his role as the ill-fated Norinn Radd and how the character may be realized on film:

Singer did great with The Usual Suspects and the first two X-Men movies.............but totally bombed with Superman............or maybe it was just the fact that it was Superman:D .........

I thought that The Hulk CGI was great..............the movie, not so great........

I know I am in a minority here..........but I thought the 2005 Fantastic Four movie was decent..........definately not my favorite Marvel movie, but not the worst *cough*Electra*cough*...............I think the Thing shoulda been done CGI a la Hulk................

And the 1994 movie of the Fantastic Four..............you are not allowed to count...............no marvel movie prior to Ramey's Spider-Man and Singer's X-Men counts as an actual movie.............more like an after school special. If you count them, then you gotta count Star Wars Episode I, II and III as movies as well.............oh and you gotta count Batman 3 and 4 also............there are five great movies for ya.........
