The Fantastic Four

Because of all of the surgery related downtime I’m a little behind on my movie watching, so tonight was the first night of catchup. The Fantastic Four was great! A lot better than the last attempt at it, which was never released (even though you can find a VHS of it if you look hard enough).

Things that stood out in my mind:

Dr. Doom’s descent into evil was done a lot better than Anakin’s!
Ben Grimm/The Thing – Michael Chiklis did a really good job with the reluctant hero.
The special effects – outstanding and believable for a comic book universe.

This movie was well worth the price of admission and will have a place on my shelf when the DVD comes out.
