Okay, the other night Fantastic Four (2005) was on TV, and I got sucked into watching the last hour. I came away thinking, okay it was cheesy and the effects were average (even for 2005) and Dr Doom was terrible. However, it was otherwise quite an enjoyable film that captured some of the dynamics that made the characters so likeable in the comics. In particular Michael Chiklis absolutely nailed The Thing, and Chris Evans was a good Human Torch (their dynamic was terrific). Jessica Alba was well....hot as Sue and Ioan Gruffud was a reasonable Reed. All in all , it was a fun movie, which is what I remember FF being as a comic. Then I thought back to FF 2015, which essentially bastardized the Ultimate Marvel versions of the characters and managed to somehow have a worse version of Dr Doom (which is quite an achievement in of itself). This movie starts out as one thing, and then halfway through becomes a totally different movie, with similar characters. It's not totally awful, but not great and nowhere near as much fun as its predecessor. I was interested on other people's thoughts -I've noticed that FF 2005 gets quite a bit of hate (personally I liked it, and didn't mind FF RotSS, which has some good fan-service, although Galactus is simply terrible). Anyway, FF 2005 does a much better job of portraying what I feel is the classic FF vibe, where FF 2015 is just misguided, lost and only barely watchable. Thoughts people ?
