The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
43: Crash Test Dummy + Terminator = Dr. Doom

Fantastic Four.

The Fantastic Four has had a rough time of it in the cinema. The first movie was released in 2005 and was met with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 27% and when The Silver Surfer was released in 2007 the reviews came in at 37%. Fast forward to 2015 and Fox has successfully handled the X-Men franchise and looked again to try it’s hand at Marvel’s first family.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by the other members of the Marvel Posse, Andi VanderKolk and Daniel Proulx to talk about Fantastic Four. We discuss the previous films, why so serious, the good, what went wrong, the story, the effects and production and wrap up with our ratings.
