The best bad movie podcast, with Nick Nobel and Chris Dobson. Episodes release every other Thursday.

Jan 23, 2016

Despite our protestations in the last episode, Your Stupid Minds has, by somewhat coincidence, decided to make January a Worst of 2015 theme. We review our second Fantastic Four movie with one that for some reason was actually released, 2015’s Fantastic Four. Featuring a hip new cast of Oscar nominees and hopefuls, gritty teal and orange cinematography, and a rushed, nonsense final product with 30 minutes cut, the 2015 version manages to be the worst of the bunch.

Plot synopsis: See the 1994 and 2005 versions. Science, accident, get powers, Dr. Doom is evil. Add: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Dan Castellaneta, bad American accents, and science fairs. Remove: Most of the plot, anything charming or fun, and the director’s original intent.
