Comic book movies: a mine that runs deeper and deeper and drrrprrrr. Unlike real mountains, you work on one comic-book-movie mountain, take a few years off it turns out the damn thing was still full of gold. Then again, some mountains are bigger than others. If X-Men and Avengers are K2 and Everest, respectively, and Antman is basically Kennecott, then Fantastic Four is Mount Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro is well known because Hemmingway wrote about it. Fantastic Four probably wouldn’t be so notable if Stan Lee hadn’t had a hand in its creation. I am not saying it sucks. I am just saying there are move valuable and exciting mountains being mined. And why isn’t there a serious movie about George Washington? He is the supposed father of this country. He’s was the first president. The last representation I can recall seeing Washington was in HBO’s “John Adams.” Is someone working on this? Fincher? Just anyone but Kevin Smith.
Here is the trailer for Fantastic Four reboot. Miles Teller is in it and he was in my favorite film of 2014, so I am most likely going to this. First, I am going for a hike.
