And oh boy, does that 1994 movie stink. It's not even bad in a charming or fun kind of way, it's just simply a plain bad movie, that does absolutely nothing right. It inspired me to do a list of 'things I'm sure the new Fantastic Four movie does better than the 1994 one'. It would be fun to eventually revisite the list after I have seen the new 2015 movie but first, let's have some fun with this list for now.
This is an easy one. I mean, just look at it! The characters don't only look like they have walked out of a cartoon, they look like they have walked out of a very poorly done and cheap cartoon. Too colorful, too impractical, too...well, just too awful! And that big four on their chest is to avoid confusion with the Thunderbirds I suppose?
The movie manages to make the even most awesome of characters seem like dull and uninteresting ones. Here we have a movie featuring an invisible woman, a guy with elastic limbs, another guy who produces fire from his body and can fly and a...well, rock like 'thing'. Yet even all these awesome superpowers don't ever make the characters likable ones that you feel you can cheer or truly ever care for throughout the movie.
