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.
