    I swear I have a memory of my grandmother taking me to a local video rental store, possibly called Big Video, or something similar, some time in the late 90s, and seeing a VHS copy of this Fantastic Four movie on one of the shelves. I think it may have even had a ‘Not for Sale’ sticker on it. I remember strongly debating with myself over whether I wanted to rent it, or something else. I inevitably walked out of the store with something else, I think Hitchcock’s Vertigo, as I’d loved Rear Window, and was really curious to see another Jimmy Stewart led thriller. But, every time I went back to that video store, I always went looking for that FF VHS, and sadly, never saw it again. A couple years later, the place was bought out by Blockbuster. And not too long after that, and to this day, the storefront now houses a thrift store.

    21:00 Remember the great scene at the airport battle with Spider-Man?
    Cap - "Ya got moxie, kid. Where ya from?"
    Spider-Man - "Queens."
    Cap - (chuckles) "Redondo Beach, California."
    Spider-Man - "You just made Stan Lee cry."

    Fantastic Four was great because the studio and corporate interests had no input or interest. They knew it was never going to see the light of day and they let an artist do their art.

    Keep in mind:
    The RLM guys saw "The Fantastic Four" AFTER seeing two terrible films before it. Had they seen it solo, their review might've been much, much worse.

    The back covers of comics published lately by DC feature an ad for Supergirl on Blu-Ray! Like it's a new release from the Warner Bros. archive. The artwork in the ad actually shows some ugly dragon-looking thing in the background (instead of the invisible monster that was Kara's REAL attacker). Why now? Why on earth now? Why remind anyone that this awful movie exists? Because Supergirl, I guess.

    It's the same universal media phenomenon of too many cooks.
    Supergirl with its big Hollywood team gets focus groups trying to write as many film genres into it as possible to try and grab the chick lit and capeshit audience simultaneously.
    Fantastic Corman has a checklist consisting of "Begin", "End" and "Accomplish Superhero Mission", with just enough people to fill in all the actually necessary superhero shit and work on pulling it off accordingly.

    The never-officially-released Fantastic Four movie made it on to British TV once in the early morning (Bout 08:00 or 09:00) when I was younger. Wasn't until like the internet era that I found out that it was an hash can copy. I have no idea how the studio ended up with the copy but at the time me and my brother were fairly blown away by it. I mean this was years before the other Fantastic Four movie came out and way before you'd really seen like Comic book movies in the mainstream, least to the extent we see them now. Think they ran it just before the Hulk movie where he meets up with Thor and John Ryes Davids Kingpin.

    Supergirl's plot is quite like a Looney Toon. The moment Bugs Bunny shows up dressed like a girl the the heavy forgets what he's trying to do and attempts to get it on with the transvestite rabbit. Which is great in a Looney Toon, a little less so in a Superhero film, unless you're watching Best of the Worst, in which case it's exceptional.

    I saw Supergirl in the cinema, for my birthday, with my male friends. I don't know what they thought but I had a fine time! I've never dared watch it again, but I recall the early stuff before Kara gets to Earth looked good. Plus for a cheesy B movie it has some amazing casting. Not only Peter O'Toole and Mia Farrow as Supergirl's parents, but also Peter Cook as 'Nigel'! (I don't expect most Americans to know who Peter Cook is.)

  • TheNightBadger

    I'm going to come out in defence of Supergirl here: It has a fantastic cast, effects that were top rate for the time, and some terrific sets. However, the script is a damn mess. I'm also not sure I get the whole 'terrible writing of women' thing. It wasn't just unusual to try and release a huge fantasy movie with a female protagonist and antagonist, it was _unheard_ of. That they threw in a few things they thought might appeal to the target demographic was probably smart, and that those things seem clunky again comes down to the script. Also, Faye Dunaway's character Selina isn't so much badly written (any more so than any of the characters), most of that was just Dunaway in her scenery-chewing mid-80's Diva mode.
    Speaking specifically about the scene in which she decides she wants Hart Bochner - again, not very well written - but it plays like this: _Dunaway and Vaccaro are stuck in traffic outside the girls school Supergirl attends, Vaccaro comments on how attractive the gardner is (Hart), Dunaway dismissively agrees but comments she has bigger things to think about. Supergirl wears a wrist thing connected to the Hedron that activates a signal from one to the other. The Hedron starts acting up and Dunaway - being a narcissist - think's that the Hedron is always 'talking' to her - she thinks it's reacting to the conversation she just had with Vaccaro about Hart and believes the Hedron is telling her _*_not_*_ to dismiss him - so she decides to get together with him. "What it wants - it gets"_ . Clunkily written yes, but still some kind of logic.

    Listening to Swarcs commentary on the movie reveals that he never questioned the flaws in the script - he just went with them. This was a HUGE mistake. He Directed a solid movie, but he never did anything about the obvious logical inconsistencies within the story. He was just like "It's a Superhero movie". There needed to me more logic underpinning the film. All the ingredients were there for a truly great movie, but the script was really really messy.

  • Dark Mountain Productions

    Kind of ironic that Fantastic Four also had the best musical score as well. I mean, that movie has a heroic, well composed score in it. It's not the best, no, but I'd honestly say it was a better score than some of Marvel's current films.

    I have to say, the way the Human Torch flails about and struggles with the laser COULD be a reference to the Fleischer Superman cartoons--there's a surprisingly similar scene in one with a laser...I think it's called the Deadly Ray or something like that.

    I saw Supergirl IN THE THEATER 2 days before it came out. A pal of mine was a manager at a movie theater and sometimes we would watch the films being released that Friday since they loaded them up Wednesdays. We watched Supergirl after closing, for free, and I still felt like I paid too much. The entire film was offensive, it was like some old execs looked at all the things Superman would do, or could do and they all said, well sure, but would a DAME do it? Well with the flyin she would see ponies and her spaceship can't look like a ship, it needs to be a egg, you know, feminine. The same for Faye Dunaway's character - she gets a item to CONTROL THE PLANET - oh wait, I am a lady an I need a MAN, mah lady parts are dusty, so look sexy man put all things aside to get some loving because no woman can survive without a man. But of course as a good looking rich woman, it was of course impossible for her to get a husband, or lover or just a man whore without MAGIC?

    Although I know it's a very personal and sensitive subject for him, I wish Rich would have at least briefly address how he felt about his much uglier brother Chris (and also black sheep of the family) playing the current Captain America (and the Human Torch prior to that). I know there is a lot of friction in that relationship but it felt like a missed opportunity.

    Random thought - besides a possible decent script or effort by Corman, they 'might' have wanted to insure that a court case attempting to seize the rights to Fantastic 4 by stipulating that no movie of any worth was actually made would fail. Cheap? Yup. Total suck? Apparently not. Superman IV this wasn't.
