Shock, surprise, new Fantastic Four movie sucks.

I didn't see it. I'm waiting for Netflix next month. But here's someone who did see it.

"Fantastic Four," the reboot of Marvel's original superhero gang starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, should have had a subtitle. I'd suggest "Fantastic Four: Prologue!" or perhaps "Fantastic Four: Failure to Launch." The latest entry into the superhero sweepstakes is a leaden affair that seems to exist only to set up a sequel and doesn't even do a good job at that.

I did warn y'all that it was going to suck. Yes, I did.

How is it that the people responsible for hundred million dollar movies can't tell when stuff is going to suck, but we can tell just from the way they pick the cast?

Comic book nerds may not be the type of people to get overly vocal (outside of their circle of friends and family) when their beloved characters fall prey to political correctness, or some studio exec's idea of inclusiveness, what they do however is make their point with what they choose to spend their money on.
