ThrowBack Thursday!

Lets take a look back to the year 1994 at a movie that almost was. The Fantastic 4 were never my favorite group of super heroes but I realize that a lot of people really love them. However, I think we can all agree that not releasing their movie from back in the 90’s probably did everyone a huge favor. This movie was produced on a 1 million dollar budget which might sound like a lot, especially for the early 90s, but one look at this trailer and you can tell that its not.

I think we sometimes forget how bad comic book costumes translate to the big screen, but this is a good reminder of why 90% of the time it’s a good idea for film makers to change character costumes for their movies. Depending on who you believe this movie was never actually meant to see the light of day but director and cast didn’t know that. It didn’t matter though because in 2005 we were all treated with the 90 million dollar pile of crap that was the Fantastic 4 anyways.

This movie might be one that is so bad that it’s actually good. I mean Mr. Fantastic’s powers look amazing as he stretches his arm like no body’s business, and the Thing’s giant foam rubber suit really gives you that sense of realism. Sue Storm dematerializes eloquently and Johnny storm really lights the hell out of those bushes. All in all I think we should all just take a moment, and marvel at the wonder of The Fantastic 4 1994 movie trailer…
