Same here. I hope they go director's cut on the DVD instead of stuffing all the deleted scenes into a separate track. It's become blatantly obvious where the deleted scenes go and which ones they were if you watched every single damn trailer and promo spot like I did.ngnot said:As for the DVD, I also can't wait for it, all though I wouldn't mind seeing it again, the kids and 'tards in the theater really took away from the whole expeirence :x

Just another case of a story being made dumb because it's a comic.
The prejudice of the industry against comic book stories has to be changing, it has to be. With Sin City and Batman Begins this year, and with Spiderman 2 last year, we've seen that superheroes don't mean dumb, so why do the studios seem to insist on it? Sure, appealing to a wider audience by making something less challenging works up to a point, the Fantastic Four is the point in hand.
Doctor Von Doom, the guy sees himself as an emperor, as a god, he's the inspiration behind Darth Vader amongst others and is one of the most feared bad guys in comic for the last 40 years. So why wasn't he scary?
For a story about two scientific geniuses battling it out with their wits as much as their powers, why was it so dumb?
The movie just seemed one step up from the Roger Corman effort, but in that took itself below it, because that was at least so bad that it was good.
It felt made for TV, and the only decent moment of characterisation was Johnny Storm getting Ben to slap cream in his own face.
Gruffudd and Evans did their jobs ok, Alba and Chilkis were terrible.
I don't know where I'd vote this on a scale of 10, but it's somewhere between Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Batman and Robin. If you loved those, then you must love this. There was absolutely nothing there to keep my attention.

This is pretty annoying, ain't it? But not as much as ProjectX2's constant score updater in that character game. (I keed, I keed little dog little joke :wink: )
Really?ultimatedjf said:Wow. Fantastic Four had a bigger opening weekend at the box office than Superman Returns did.

Not necessarily. The movie cost less than $200 million to make. $60 million was sunk into the series' various false starts, before SR was greenlit.
