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”.
