WITH A DOOFY PLOT, PRODUCT PLACEMENTS THAT PRACTICALLY SLAP the AUDIENCE in the FACE and an "ULTIMATE VILLAIN" THAT's ARGUABLY a GLORIFIED DUST BUNNY, http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=202&PN=1 - FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE of the SILVER SURFER HAS MANY PROBLEMS. BUT the ONE ELEMENT of the FILM WE CAN ALMOST GUARANTEE WILL GET RAZZIE® ATTENTION IS the PERFORMANCE of RAZZIE VETERAN http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=Jessica+Alba&btnG=Search+Razzies.com&domains=razzies.com&sitesearch=razzies.com - JESSICA ALBA as "INVISIBLE WOMAN" SUE STORM. THE ONLY QUESTION IS: DOES THIS ROLE QUALIFY HER as WORST ACTRESS or, GIVEN HOW LITTLE ACTUAL SCREEN TIME SHE HAS, IS SHE a WORST SUPPORTING ACTRESS CONTENDER?

CONSIDER, and FEEL FREE to DISCUSS BELOW...

On Ebert and Roeper, the Guest critic gave it a thumbs up and Roper, who hated the first, gave it a MARGINAL thumbs down. He thinks he might like the next film, though. Well, here's my review:

With Von Doom back in his homeland of Latveria the fantastic four have new troubles when Galactus has decided that Earth is his next target. When his henchman, The Silver Surfer, is sent to Earth he discovers that he's getting more than he bargained for when he encounters the Fantastic Four. But that's not all when Dr. Doom decides that after two years in the homeland he is ready to return.

With it's short running time, FF2 is a fast paced movie. It doesn't waste anytime on anything and gets right to the point. It's more or less a popcorn film because it's really not all about the action. This film is even better than the first film (although not as good as the extended cut of the first film). There is more character development, more intense, and more dramatic.

With more dramatic scenes, there are also more comedic scenes, most for both the children and the adults to enjoy. The problem is that this movie switches from drama to comedy in scenes. If you want it to be funny, go with it and vice versa.

Although with the PG rating, there is even more intense action sequences and a death scene that pushes the PG rating a bit. The CGI in here ranges from being bad to fantastic with some things you can feast your eyes on. I like the acting by cooler Ioan Gruffudd, the sexier Jessica Alba, the handsomer Chris Evans, and the, well, Michael Chiklis.

I also want to attack a "problem" in this film that people are complaining about: Galactus. Yes, many will be disappointed on how he appears in the movie or that he appears at all but isn't this film called "Rise of the Silver Surfer"? So please, don't be surprised of how Galactus appears.

Although not as good as Spider-Man 3, this film is harmless fun for the family. There are more action sequences and comedy. It doesn't take itself seriously like the more serious superhero films (ala Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Spider-Man). It's an okay adaptation for Silver Surfer (there will be a spin-off), but many people will be surprised this film will exceed their expectations. 8/10

As for the Box Office Numbers, yes, it didn't reach $100 Million as anyone would expect, still made some high numbers, $58 million, so, it does look like it may pass the $100 million dollar mark at the U.S. Box Office, but only time will tell if it will be higher or lower than its predecessor. Anyways, moviewizguy, you've seen this movie, and did you think it was a good film? And if there are some problems on this movie, tell us about those problems.

Response from Head RAZZberry: The first FANTASTIC FOUR ended up with a domestic total gross of about $155 million, following an opening weekend of $56 million. B.O. MoJo estimated its production budget as $100 million ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=fantasticfour.htm - LINK ). This second one is estimated to have cost $130 million ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=daily&id=fantasticfour2.htm - LINK ) and when you add in the cost of prints and advertising, their total investment certainly exceeds the gross of the first film (with Fox only getting about 65% of the box office take). So how was this sequel a wise investment??

What is THAT supposed to mean?!

Look, I'm not an avid FF reader, and my knowledge of the movie comes from online information (no way I'm shelling out ten bucks to see that crap!), but from my knowledge of the Galactus storyline, I understand that if you're gonna introduce the Silver Surfer into the movies, you HAVE to mention Galactus. So, can you blame the comic book fans for being upset that he doesn't look much like he does in the comics? I mean, altering a villain's costume is one thing (example: the Green Goblin in Spider-Man), but changing his entire form?!

Now, your criticism of other comic book movies - I haven't seen Superman Returns (YET), so I can't offer a rebuttal. Batman Begins? Okay, that's SUPPOSED to be serious! He's the Dark Knight! Ever wonder why people were upset with Batman & Robin? And Spider-Man? Okay, yes, there were some serious moments, but I wouldn't exactly say it was a dark and brooding film.

 

*ahem* Anyway, on the subject of Alba's RAZZIE possibilities...well I certainly wasn't impressed with her performance in the first movie. Why should this time be any different?

I'm just saying this movie doesn't take itself too seriously, like most superhero films. It has a fun time, just know...with the one-liners. It puts a smile on your face. As for Galactus, I liked the way he appeared in the movie. It was dark, but why are people complaining? You don't see his whole body (he's HUMONGUS!) but at least you can see what he's doing. It's not like they could spend a $200 million dollar budget entirely on Galactus...

HeadRAZZ, this is a perfect time to bring up something I tried to bring up on another thread: The number of films that Jessica Alba is starring in this year. She has five projects (including this one) coming out this year, which basically guarantees that she will get a razzie nomination for something. They are:

FF2-already in discussion

Good Luck Chuck-This Dane Cook sex comedy will definitely get discussed here when it comes out. The trailer doesn't make it clear whether Alba is lead or supporting.

Bill-A weird looking comedy with Aaron Eckhart

Awake-A thriller starring Hayden Christensen with Alba as his wife.

The Eye-Alba has the lead role in this American remake of a Japanese thriller.

So I'd like the HeadRAZZ and all other users to give their predictions and comments about "the year of Alba" and how the year will turn out for her in terms of razzies.

I saw on The Good Luck Chuck Movie Poster that Alba's name comes right after Dane Cook, so I would pretty much say she is a  Lead Actress in that one...

TRIVIA: The cameo scene where http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0498278/ - Stan Lee is refused entry to the wedding is in keeping with the comic series. In the 1960s story of Reed Richards and Susan Storm's wedding, two characters, obviously representing writer Stan Lee and artist/plotter http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0456158/ - Jack Kirby , are also not allowed to attend the wedding.

Stan personally wanted to play Jameson in the Spider-Man films--Jonah being his stated favorite character of all those he's had a hand in creating.  Since he seems to pop up for at least a few seconds in every Silver Age-related Marvel film to date, you have to wonder if he has more to do with them than the credits let on.

Response from Head RAZZberry: We will deal with Alba's various Potential RAZZIE Contenders as they come into release. In my opinioon, she is not a "talent" of enough substance to merit an individual topic devoted solely to discussing her suckiness. We all know she sucks, and specifically discussing the subject at length (as opposed to discussing her suckiness in the context of specific films and performances) strikes me as kinda redundant...

I thought that FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE of the SILVER SURFER was not that bad a film. It had some good parts, and plenty of action. Not too bad for a summer sequel...

Great. Head Razz, since you liked the first FF, have you have a chance to see this sequel?

Response from Head RAZZberry: I actually saw SILVER SURFER the night it opened at my local Cineplex. It was neither spectacularly bad nor spectacularly good -- More of a gutterball of a movie, doing little or no damage, but also having little or no impact, and leaving almost no trace on the mind within hours of seeing it. The special FX were so-so (except the giant planet-eating-cloud near the end, which looked surprisingly like something out of Mel Brooks' SPACEBALLS) and the acting was generally acceptable, competent and ho-hum. Only Jessica Alba, with her skeletal-thin body, severely bee-stung-looking lips and lame line deliveries, really stood out to me. And, despite her getting high-placed billing, I might still argue that, due to her only being on-screen for a total of maybe 25 minutes, this may qualify as a Supporting rather than a Leading performance...

Oops!  Posted the same post twice.  I'm changing one of them.  Hmmm, let's see, I liked the scene where Susan Storm put Reed Richards in a pita shield.


Posted By: cvcjr13

MAJOR SPOILERS ENSUE.

Well, let's hear it for the Silver Divine One, who possesses the power to resurrect the dead and is able to obliterate gigantic planet-eating smoke clouds by flashing them! . . .

Oh, man, what happened to Galactus?  Mind you, I was wondering how they were going to pull off Galactus so he didn't look like Bill O'Reilly in a purplish-red Wizard of Oz-type suit ready to pick up the earth and eat it like a pealed grapefruit.  But, to be bluntly honest, that would have been a whole lot better that All Smoke And No Fire.  The image certainly didn't fire me up.  Can anyone translate "All Smoke And No Fire" into a Native American language?  Whatever you come up with, that's what this so-called Galactus should really be called.

Too bad there isn't a Razzie category for worst special effects.  We'd have three contenders this year: Blood and Chocolate for its boring werewolf transformations, Epic Movie for any scene with the beaver and Silver Surfer Gets a Rise out of the Fantastic Four for its despic. . . er. . . depiction of Galactus.

AND WHAT DOES JESSICA ALL-BLAH THINKS SHE'S DOING?  ACTING?  I can finally see why so many thought Keira Knightley did such a great job with Elizabeth Swann--they were contrasting her to Alba!  If they ever, ever do another sequel, it would benefit all involved if Alba gets this character down.  Susan Storm is an independent, intelligent woman and SHE IS A LEADER, second in command to Reed Richards.  Mind you, the lines and the roles she plays run counter to Susan Storm's character, but Alba still needs to be Susan Storm, not this emotionally weak woman who happens to wield a tremendous power.

It is disappointing that Galactus does not curse the Silver Surfer to an existence on earth, like he did in the comic book.  It is incredulous that the Silver Surfer destroyed Galactus.  And it is just plain wrong that Silver Surfer raised the dead.  He can manipulate matter, he can heal, but HE CAN'T RAISE THE DEAD.

Despite all that, I enjoyed Ioan Gruffud's acting, was amazed by the stunt with the helicopter and the wedding chairs, felt the Silver Surfer appeared to be realistic and found the way-too-full-of-himself Johnny Storm to be as enjoyable as ever.  This is a popcorn movie.  It didn't move me.  It didn't bore me.  I'm glad I saw it.  It entertained me.

Razzie nom for Jessica Alba as worst actress.  HeadRAZZBerry, if you put her up for both worst actress and worst supporting actress, you could have on your hands someone "winning" both awards for the same role, so a decision may need to be made.  I'd certainly be tempted to vote for both parts, if it weren't for Epic Movie.  That movie is still the worst on my list.

Response from Head RAZZberry: Not to worry -- My thinking is that for this role, Alba deserves to be listed in our Supporting Actress category. For one (or more?) of her other starring roles due out later this year, she might also be listed as Worst Actress, thus potentially garnering dual nominations for a single year's bad work...

Your suggested scenario for Alba reminds me of my all-time favorite RAZZIE two-fer: In 1991 the ever-reliably-rotten Sean Young played twin sisters in a remake of A KISS BEFORE DYING. As the sister who is murdered in the film's first five minutes, we nominated Young as Worst Supporting Actress. As the surviving sister who spends the film trying to solve her twin's murder, we also nominated Young as Worst Actress. When the final votes were tallied, Young took both awards -- A doubly insulting RAZZIE Double Header, and a feat unlikely to be repeated any time soon...

OK, I saw this movie with a group of guys without seeing the first one. I didn't really like this movie. I was literally falling asleep in my chair (maybe partly cause it was 2 in the morning). So I gotta know, is this worse or better than the first one? 

Response from Head RAZZberry: The first FANTASTIC FOUR was actually kinda clunky but was, other than Alba's RAZZIE nominated performance, actually an "okay" movie. This second one, which exists solely because the first one made a profit, tip-toes right up to the line of being a strong RAZZIE contender, but (other than, as last time, Alba's incompetent, robotic performance) doesn't quite cross it...

I guess for once I am going to actually have to side with moviewizguy...sort of. My opinions of Jessica Biel's past performances are mixed; I've liked her in some things, and not cared for her in others. But in my opinion, she is Razzie proof simply as a humanitarian.

Here in Colorado, we have a wildlife rescue sanctuary that provides a home for bears, tigers and other big cats, mostly from environments where they were raised as pets then abandoned, or otherwise abused. (Some of you may have seen it on Animal Planet, featured in an episode of their marvelous "Growing Up" series. Eddie the Black Panther was highlighted in the episode, "Growing up Black Panter) About a year ago, it was facing a very severe financial crisis, and was on the verge of closing. The proprietors were feverishly looking for homes for all the sanctuaries animals. Then in stepped Jessica Biel, along with a few other local contributors, and put the sanctuary on solid financial footing more or less indefinitely. A big salute and thank you to her. Frankly, she'll never have to fear a Razzie vote from me.

Well, of course all actors can't have great performances in all of their films. Most of the times, they are mixed because they starred in some good and bad movies.

Admittedly, my current admiration for Biel is based on gratitude for a terrific humanitarian gesture; a real and measurable one, as opposed to a very undefined one as offered by another of the board's semi-frequent posters for the benefit of Sly Stallone. Nonetheless, if Ms Biel suddenly starts pulling a Lindsay Lohen on us, or doing something really dumb and destructive, like giving money to the Republicans, she could easily find herself on my target list.

20th Century Fox ruins every comic book movie it touches. "Daredevil", "Ghost Rider", "Fantasic 4". Fox turned them all into these stupid, campy, "Batman & Robin" like pieces of s***! For some reason, Fox thinks the old '60s Adam West "Batman" TV series is still the standard for live action comic book adaptations, and these movies prove that.

I would at least like them to be serious and not like a live action cartoon. If you want some humor in it, that's fine, but don't make it cheesy and stupid like Fox does to its comic book movies. "IronMan" was a perfect example of a super hero movie having a great balance of drama and comedy. Hollywood should follow its example, no the Adam West's Batman.

That's pretty debatable. IMO, Daredevil has to be the most surprising and most dark superhero movie I've ever seen until TDK came out two years ago. I wasn't aware of the comics or the superhero himself so the events that occurred in that movie where characters you don't expect to die do die and characters you want to die end up living in the end is pretty surprising and very bleak. It's a depressing film but a very fine superhero movie.

I disagree. If there are serious superhero movies, like TDK and Hulk, I'd expect other superhero movies to not be serious, to balance out the equation. The Fantastic Four movies are the perfect example of a superhero film that don't take itself too seriously which is what I enjoy seeing. It seems like all recent superhero movies are trying to be dark and depressing just because of The Dark Knight's praise. All of a sudden, studios want everything to be dark. Let me remind you, the Fantastic Four was supposed to be a for the family. There's a reason the sequel is rated PG.

That may be true that studios want superheroes to be more dark because of success of the "TDK", but you should also keep in mind that "TDK" was perfectly made for this post-9/11 world we live in, with themes ranging from spying within our own country, terrorism, cooked cops and goverment, and the power of the media. Comic books have evolved from the days of straight edge, pure hero vs. the evil just because he can be villain, and I think the comic book movies should follow that example, too.

The effects were more impressive but the action sequences weren't so entertaining(except the last thing SILVER SURFER does in the movie).Jessica Alba's acting was close to being average to bad.It was darker,like most people(including the users here)wanted.

I give this 7/10.

Clearly you're not a fan of the comic, otherwise you would understand why everyone hated this movie.

"Sin City" was word for word and scene for scene indentical to the novels (except for the ending). It is well liked by fans for doing so.
