I know that somebody is going to see this film today or tomorrow. I know that Johnny Storm (the Torch) yells out "Flame On !" from the previews, but I gotta know....does Ben Grim (The Thing) yell out "It's clobberin ' Time !" ? How can you have an accurate movie with out that. It would be like seeing Spiderman without him saying "Friendly neighborhood Spiderman".

I saw a clip that one of the actors showed on a talk show in which The Thing says "It's clobberin' time" before taking a swing at Doc Doom. I agree that any FF movie, no matter how well done overall, would seem empty without the blue-eyed everloving Thing's call to battle.

I have some reservations that I won't get into since it is still unseen for most. Overall - I thought it was good. Worst ever? I can think of a few, this one does not make that list.

Daredevil or the Punisher are horrible superhero movies.

Even though I am a diehard DC fan and don't read much Marvel I will end up seeing this movie A few years back I read that the directors of these suerhero movies would rather please a million movie goers than a thousand comic book fans

That's generally why the directors won't make the movies true to the comic books series

Well the directors of the Spiderman series "screwed up". They pleased both categories. The character is dead-on in my opinion, and it is so filled with action to please the movie goer. As to Fantastic 4...I'll see it on dvd no matter what anyone says and make my own assesment.

I didn't think that Daredevil or The Punisher were really that bad. Both were reasonably true to the characters and not too horribly over-acted in general. Origin movies usually aren't as smooth or free flowing as later films in a series. Compare X-Men to X2 as a good example. Plus, somebody with some power must have liked The Punisher since a sequel is already in the works. Heck, when you compare it to that wretched piece of junk 1980's version of Punny starring Dolph Lundgren last year's film looks like a work of art!
As for the worst comic films of all time, Lundgren's Punisher, Superman 3, and Batman and Robin are clearly at the top (bottom?) of the list.
Sorry about going so far off topic for so long. I just felt compelled to say a few words in defense of a couple of films that I enjoyed. As far as Fantastic 4 is concerned, I really don't care what critics say. I've been looking forward to seeing this film and am going to go.

I understand that a Captain America film was made. It was so bad that it only made it to video and the only place to find it is at comic conventions. Anybody seen Fantastic 4 that was a fan and not just an action movie goer?
