Fantastic Four (2015) Teaser Trailer Review

Preface

  • This movie has had 1 hundred-and-one problems surrounding it.
  • I was looking forward to this movie when I first heard about it a couple years back for one reason: we live in a post-Dark Knight Trilogy era where superhero movies aren’t stupid and cheesy like the Jessica Alba Fantastic Four movies.
    • I assumed that the new Fantastic Four would have that new, dark edge to it that all superhero movies do nowadays.
  • Then I heard rumors about the problems on set, the release date being pushed back, Josh Trank (the director) maybe borrowing too much from his prior work Chronicle (one of my favorite films, by the way). Plus we hadn’t seen any images or footage from the film yet and it’s only 6-ish months away!
  • But this trailer changed my mind on that.
  • I thought that this trailer was GREAT.

  • I don’t always do these Spoiler-Talk Reviews.
    • Interstellar? Yup.
    • Guardians? Yup.
    • Annie? Umm, no thank you…

  • SPOILER WARNING!
  • You can check out my Spoiler-Free Review, and definitely check this movie out!
    • It was a lot better than I thought, and might be better than you think!
  • So I’m going into more spoilers. If you don’t want those ruined, click elsewhere on this site, there’s tons more to read!!
    • Maybe my Spider-Man/Marvel discussion? I put a lot of (almost too much) time into that one.
  • Clicked away?
  • Gone?
  • Good!

2015 Academy Award Nominees Announced!

Preface

  • I’m getting this to you guys a couple days late, and I’m sorry about that.
    • I just had to find the chunks of my brain that flew out after The Lego Movie wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Feature, and try to reassemble those chunks in the proper fashion.
  • Yeah we’ll talk about that snub later, but seriously: yeah I had a ton of projects to finish for the semester at school all day Thursday.
    • Friday I was busy too and worked hard to crank out Night at the Museum Spoiler-Free and Spoiler Filled (you’ll get that later tonight) Reviews.
    • I spent like 2 and a half hours on Spider-Man yesterday and just spent the rest of the day hibernating.
