I’ll take my comic book movies a little less angsty, please.

This is more like it. A summertime comic book movie that knows that it’s a summertime comic book movie. No, Silver Surfer is not high art, but it’s entertaining. I liked it way better than the first one, and (dare I say it) I liked it better than Spider-Man 3 (which, the further I get from it, sucks more and more).

They did the Surfer right. They did the team and powers right. They got the Johnny/Thing bickering right. Just about everything is right except for their annoyingly small treatment of Doctor Doom. And I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that Galactus appears…just not as the goofy 100-foot-tall alien from the comics.

Next up, a quick visit with our old friend McClane before the main event–Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

    We saw this movie on Sunday…part of our Father’s Day Extravaganza. I thought the movie itself was mediocre…but I did like the Silver Surfer and I hope they do a movie with just his story.

    I just can’t get over the creepy blue contacts that Jessica Alba wears. Why does Susan have to have blue eyes?

    I agree, F4 was way better than Spider-man 3. At least no villains cried in F4.

    But like Karan said, the blue contacts were creeping me out the whole movie.

    I’m whicked glad to see F4 II (F4-2 ?) passed the Solly test.

    Maybe I’ll get to see it before any of the other biggies that I’ve yet to see…Spidey and Shrek and Pirates #3’s. I’m still looking forward to DieHard4 more than any of them, I suppose. Other than Harry…
