Fantastic Four

Went to a screening of Fantastic Four last night. The theater only got maybe half full! I wonder if it had anything to do with the stupid release thing. I know volta ended up not getting his tickets after sending in the release, so I'll bet it happened to other people, too.

The movie itself was pretty much what you would expect. It's a summer action movie that's based on a comic book thingy. So it's the origin story (I assume quite a bit different from the comic, which I haven't read), which includes fighting Dr. Doom. Fun effects, nice little story. And a fairly short movie, too, coming in at just a few minutes over an hour and a half.

I really liked the Human Torch bits. I could have watched a whole movie full of the Human Torch doing all sorts of cool things. Er, and the Invisible Woman getting undressed.
