*snif* I just got back from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. I got fair warning about painfully silly acting, but this was a movie that I've been eagerly awaiting for, oh, 20-25 years or so. (gingerly pets her 1968 original but nowhere-near-mint, don't-even-go-there copy of Silver Surfer #1 that she purchased for twenty bucks in 1980)
I'm glad I went. Seeing one of my all-time favourite characters on the big screen was indeed worth the price of admission. No complaints about the portrayal of the Surfer, none whatsoever. Beautifully realized with great special effects and a wonderful voice.
Oh, and I liked Ben Grimm too. The Thing... uh... rocks?
