12:15 and I am sitting down at the AMC on 42nd street getting ready to watch 'The Fantastic four: Rise of the Silver Surfer'
Funny to say I did want to see this movie after catching the first of the Fantastic Four movies on cable last year. I didn't think it was that bad, it was certainly better than Superman Returns.
This movie provides something for everyone: hot men, hot WOMAN, some good CGI and the potential for a third movie or the start of a new superhero/anti-hero movies.
Chris Evans is hot as ever if a little more cocky as John "Johnny skews juvenile" Storm.
Jessica Alba has the blonde hair, much hotter as a brunette though. My friend Christian noticed her eye color seemed to change in certain scenes.
Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards actually had some scenes where you can see that he is a hot man and not just the brain behind things. he looks good on a dance floor.
Michael Chiklis is always great to see. Ben Grimm he is but always great to see his big mug on the screen.
Julian McMahon was wasted in this movie if you ask me. Screen time was minimal, must just have been contracted to do it. Still giving you that touched up Nip/Tuck look.
Doug Jones as The Silver Surfer was just the right quality. Great voice(actually it is Laurence Fishburne). The body they use, I am not sure how much of it is real and how much CGI but it is just enough to make you go back to the gym.
All in all I liked it. Didn't love it.
Won't give away any of the story even though today on The Today Show the cast basically told you most of the story. Mentioning things you won't see unless u see the movie. Glad I had already screened it.
Go check it out. It is fun, cute and funny at times.
