From the "Yeah, I Went There--Don't Judge Me" Dept.:
FANTASTIC 4: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER (2007)
Full disclosure: Skipped this in the theaters, and only bought the 2-disc "Power Cosmic Edition" (*groan*) a few years afterwards because a) it was about $5, and b) I knew there was a great featurette on the comic book origins of the Silver Surfer (with some fun interviews with Stan Lee, Jim Starlin, Steve Englehart, J.M. DeMatteis and Ron Marz). But I never bothered with actually, you know, watching the film.
Until now. I trudged through it, but yeah, it's all sorts of wrong from start to finish. Maybe only marginally better than the 2005 effort, and probably more watchable that the 2015 abomination, but still a real kick in the nuts for any fan of just about any comic book era of the F.F.
(And still the only one who gives a halfway decent performance is Chris Evans.)
