Originally posted by John OrquiolaJosh Trank directed Chronicle, which I liked a lot (backofthehead.com), and got a pretty sweet gig to reboot Fantastic Four. He can't possibly do a blander, more banal job than Tim Story did with the previous Fantastic Four films* (which Oliver loved, for the record.) No cast has been announced yet, but I'm looking forward to a new, hopefully good Fantastic Four movie, as such a thing has yet to exist. Same with Daredevil. A good Daredevil movie? Currently unprecedented.
I have nothing to add, outside of, thank you for remembering me and my unabashed love of the FF movies.
Oh, and I liked Daredevil. Not *LOVED*, but liked.
Originally posted by dwatersYeah, The Incredibles needs to be in the conversation when it comes to great superhero movies. I think Unbreakable does as well- though people seem to either love or hate that movie.
Yeah, those are pretty much my two favorite superhero movies of all time.

Sure. You were the first person I'd ever heard/read openly profess gushing love for the Fantastic Four movies. Repeatedly. You don't forget a thing like that.
I liked Daredevil the first time I saw it in the theater and gave it a pass despite it's many deficiencies but the years and I have not been kind in hindsight. That includes the director's cut.
My personal opinion also is live action > animation as a general rule, but The Incredibles openly defies that rule and stomps a mudhole in it. Absolutely, The Incredibles deserves a spot when discussing Greatest Superhero Movies Ever.

When Simmons jumped out of the plane and we went to commercial, I actually said, "Good thing Lola can fly." And then they went with a parachute jump instead. Hey, Ward gets to save the day after all, hooray!
