:cool: I couldn't keep myself from anticipating the Fantastic Four sequel. Let alone all of the movie critics are not comic-book fans and don't respect the creative work the writers and artists have done with Marvel and DC Comics over the years. Will you film critics get bent?! This is science-fiction fantasy!!
I'd probably start bragging about my cousins who started collecting comic-books before I did but to say the least, a number of comic-book store owners are looking for the ones they've got dating back to the 70's. But for The Rise of the Silver Surfer, this dates back to that hard to find famous issue of the Surfer's 1st appearance in Marvel Comics with the acception of The Watcher and Galactus: The Planet Devourer. The Surfer crash landed on Earth to warn us of Galactus. In the movie, he makes way for Galactus to... oh go see the sequel! When the new kids saw the first FF movie, they flocked over to the comic-book stores to get the FF comics but they never realize the popularity of the FF peaked in their first animated series from the 60's which made the Silver Surfer popular as well.
My take on the sequel is better than I expected setting aside why Nick Lachey's girlfriend was in the movie for no reason next to Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) who thinks he's famous for not making a dime in the Baxter Foundation. Yet Stan Lee made the FF as campy as the Jetsons. And Reed Richard's CGI elastic stretching effects still needs a lot of work to look convincingly real as Steven Spielberg's dinosaurs.
Oh there's also a tidbit the critics forgot. Back in the 80's Richard Gere starred in a remake of "Reckless" playing a rebellious troublemaker who patterns himself after the Silver Surfer. See how comic-books are so connected with Hollywood? The movie critics didn't realize that themselves.
