comic book movies

OH MY GOSH.

I’M A GROWN MAN WHO STILL WATCHES COMIC BOOK MOVIES.

How lame is that?

How lame is it to realize that there are a whole lot more “man boys” out there who are doing the same?

I watched the latest “Fantastic Four” movie…online, I didn’t spend any money….and I still feel like I got ripped off.

Not really “ripped off”….that’s not fair….but….WHAT HAPPENED?

Here’s a movie that cost 120 million to make…..maybe 200 million when you factor in the marketing costs….and it was kind of lame.

“Kind of lame”….that’s kind to say that.

I think that it made something in the mid 50’s…56 million or so…at the domestic box office.

It wasn’t a blockbuster.

It took about an hour for the folks in the movie to be transformed….the final battle came and went and then….it was over.

I couldn’t wait.

And….I’m a guy who likes to watch comic book movies.

Imagine what a cinematic hell it would have been for Jenny to watch this one with me?

And….and….and….check this out!!

They’re going to release a sequel in 2017.

How about that?

Visually, it was kind of cool….but, so was the latest Ninja Turtle movie ( I heard about that one….no…that’s not true….I WATCHED IT!!)….but….the storyline or the execution of the storyline didn’t really hold together…or something.

Didn’t hold together.

Stuff happened and then there was a resolution and then the movie was over.

Dang…even a comic book movie should do better than that.

This movie was lame…..and I keep harping on that hoping that I’ll draw the attention away from the really pathetic part of this episode:

I’M A GROWN MAN WHO STILL LIKES TO WATCH MOVIES BASED ON CHARACTERS IN COMIC BOOKS.

Errrrrr…..I mean “graphic novels“.

Whew…that was close.

“GRAPHIC NOVEL” SOUNDS SO MUCH MORE “MATURE”.
