Sage and Linkara - Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

NOTE: We are aware of the issue with the movie's audio. The movie itself didn't have properly-configured stereo, so sound only comes out of the right audio channel.

    He sounds like 50% Spoony, 50% Jerry Seinfeld, and 100% annoying as fuck! of course, spoony and Seinfeld are perfectly fine on their own

    I don't get it...why does Linkara put a self-imposed moratorium on cussing?

    In an odd way, I enjoy this version more than the newer ones.
  • CageAquarium
    You know, I was actually thinking the same thing, Lycan. I actually grew up during the eighties and old style special effects, even shitty ones, were just more charming. I am not a film student and can't explain why but CG, while amazing visually, always feels so clean and lacks the grit of the old style movies. It looks real but my mind says it is fake and I just can't get past it. Maybe it is that it takes out the imagination, in a way? I can't put my finger on it, honestly, but CG just [i]feels wrong[/i].

    Maybe I am just an old fool.

    A movie which was made so that crappy movies could be made 15ish years later? You know this movie has to be great with that info.
  • ChrisHype
    Only good part of the movie: a pre-Buffy the Vampire Slayer Mercedes McNab (Harmony) playing the role of Young Sue Storm.

  • SpotTheShingo
    I'm assuming that "the Jeweler" was supposed to be the Mole Man. (Or a reasonable facsimile of. HAH!)

    And no Kool-Aid jokes when the Thing crashes through walls? OH YEAH!
  • e33laf
    I guess they figured that would be way to obvious.
  • Sharpe34
    I've seen ads for this believe it or not on some old copies of Matt Stones and Trey Parkers Orgasmo VHS tapes.
    I always thought it was a gag put on by those guys! Thanks for digging this PoS up and watching it for us, I'm still chuckling... get Dr Strange DO IT!! :evil:

    It's a problem with the movie's audio. It's not properly formatted for stereo and so it only goes out the right audio channel.
  • ChibiRico  - Argh, the sound...
    Sorry to say this Linkara and Sage, but this was unwatchable, for one and only one reason that Talvrae (may or may not have butchered the name, sorry if I did) and Viremaster mentionned before : The sound. I tried with and without headphones, and both time the sound was unbalanced and with the headphones, the movie sounds was only comming from one side and that really started annoying and hurting my ears after a while. Without them I was unable to hear some things, mainly from the movie.

    That looked like a good review too, I watched some bits until it became really unbeareable and I laughed at the Robot-Rossevelt :D

    Edit : Oh, I've just seen you're message Linkara, about the movie's sound. Oh well, there's not much you can do about it, then.

    You didn't touch some of the more absurd things of the movie like when we see Alicia Masters' Point of view of being knocked out... yes a blind woman's perspective of getting gassed unconsicous. Then there is the repetition of "it's clobberin time" which for some odd reason he adds "for real" the third time which means he was... fake clobbering before?

    Otherwise a solid review guys.

    I was JUST going to comment on the Alicia-POV-chloroforming. Out of everything else in this movie, THAT bugged me the most.
  • Thumz9814
    I havent had any problems with sound...and my computer sucks! maybe they fixed it in between your viewing and mine?

    As shitty as the movie seems to be,at least the general public were saved from shelling out to see this in Theatres.Maybe there is a God afterall.
  • Vinny792  - "DOOM, IT'S CLOBBERING TIME"
    That was the one line I most remember in the whole film when Dr. Doom has Alicia in her clutches. As Well as when Doom gets struck by the cosmic lightning proclaiming, "I WILL NOT FAIL, I WILL NOT FAIL!!!"

    For the record, despite having terrible writting and special effects that look like shit, at least the writers of this movie had a basic idea for a sequence of events that were practical for telling the story. Like, how in this movie Doom has his comic book backstory as to how he became Dr. Doom and not the head corperate executive financing the fantastic four into their outer space mission.

    It's also nice to see Dr. Doom portrayed without the made up super ability of electricity from his hands, which is all that they seem to establish in the 2005 movie.

    Though overall, I always felt both films were unsatisfying but for completely different levels. This one for having horrible special effects, and the newer one for lacking a compelling storyline.

    P.S. Although made probably for the sake of convenience, Sue's introduction to their costumes is in fact very similarly to the the way they first introduce the costumes in the original comics run. Sue is the first to wear the costume as she thinks it looks stylish, and persuades the others to wear them.

    I was the one that did the line art, and Marobot did the colors.

    ... Well, I originally did a version in color, but it was crap. ^_^;

    I do have a deviant art, however not much of my work is up yet as I'm still trying to get several projects fleshed out enough first.
