Comic Book Movies


We just saw the "Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer" last week. I was greatly entertained by it. As a comic book fan I thought it was pretty true to the original stuff, as has been all of the Marvel movies so far.

Not so true for the DC heroes ie: Batman, Superman, Catwoman etc.

I am wondering if perhaps having the originator of most of the Marvel Comics, Mr. Stan Lee being personally involved is helping.

Just wanted to know if any other comic geeks are out there and see you reviews of the comic book movies out the last few years. Your favorites? Your dogs?

No, not me. I'm just wondering about the sex of the surf rider in your picture. He's very manly, except for his big breasts.

Tammy...I'm rolling laughing at your comment, nice one!!

Bill, I've got nothing to add about the comics...too bad.

I'm really on a blog fast, but can't seem to stay away!

Whoa, now you're treading on sacred ground mrs! The Surfer is the man! Those ain't breasts, I have breasts, he's got massive muscular pecs baby!
That is just a bad picture of him, the light is wrong. I'll show you a better one. Cmon now you haven't seen ONE comic movie? Not even ONE?

He possesses the Power Cosmic which he can use to generate powerful force blasts or to rearrange molecules. The Surfer travels on a "surfboard" which responds to his mental commands and is as indestructible as he is. He has a Cosmic Awareness which allows him to feel energy around him.

I'm rolling laughing again. You simply crack me up!!

My boys are almost to the age where I'll let them watch some of this junk. Luckily for me, I'll send them with Jeremy.

If you want to talk Jane Austin movies, I'm your girl.

I did like Batman though (Michael Keaton and Kim Bassinger), even though I went with my high school boyfriend. It was our first date. He liked me that much that he took me to his most beloved Batman, and dogged his best friend. Aight, that's really all I've got! Peace Out!

Well, okay, the new picture is better than the last, but they are still a little pointed. I'd like to see you post both pictures, so we can compare.
