it's a bit quiet here this week so i'm gona throw this out here now rather than wait till wednesday ...

i watched "doomed! the untold story of rodger cormans fantastic four". you've probably heard of it or seen it. here's the trailer:



i actually really enjoyed the doc. everyone involved with making the movie really put their hearts into it. i know it's a one sided view of it but they really got shafted.

anyway, i was just wondering if anyone has watched the unreleased movie. is it worth watching. i'm sure it's been covered on other podcasts but is it worth the HDTGM treatment? it can't be any worse than the star wars holiday special... or the garbage pail kids for that matter .. and there's a pretty good copy of it on youtube so it's widely available ... again, unlike the garbage pail kids. or is it just too easy a target?

I watched both the doc and the movie recently. This was my Letterboxd review:

Quote

It isn't as terrible as you might think, but it's not as good-bad as you'd want it to be either. Its greatest crime is that it's kind of boring. However, that being said, they capture the tone pretty well. The newer F4 movies could have done a lot worse than use this movie as a storyboard.


I watched the full movie on YouTube, here's the link!

Hopefully that works for you! It's worth checking out even if it's not worth sitting through.

Here's my review for Doomed:

Quote

Quite possibly the most depressing superhero movie since Catwoman. The saddest part of all is the cast and crew's insistence that it could still be released in some format today and make "millions." Oh, honey...no.


Drinking Game: Anytime someone says, "We poured our blood, sweat, and tears..." or "I think that's when I started to realize..." take a shot.


I will say this: the cast do a pretty great job. You can tell that they aren't phoning it in. The only person I remember thinking was a little off was the guy who played Ben Grimm. To me, he played it a little too much like an "aww, shucks" milk drinking, non-swearing, Clark Kent-type. Maybe this was to juxtapose it with his angst after becoming The Thing (in fact, I'm sure this what the we're going for), but it really didn't work for me.

I saw Fantastic Four sometime before the Jessica Alba/Chris Evans version came out. My memory is pretty close to Cameron's review. It looks as cheap as it is but I still liked it okay. It's arguably the best Fantastic Four movie yet.

I wasn't aware of the documentary. I'll have to check it out.

I'm about 20 minutes into this one and am liking it so far, but I will recommend the documentary on Amazon about the making of Pet Sematary called Unearthed and Untold. It's not like other making of documentaries about infamous flops like Doomed or Lost Souls, but it is pretty detailed in how the much work went into making that film and how involved the Maine town where the film was shot was involved with making the film. Pretty interesting watch if you enjoy Stephen King's books or movies.

We are way overdue for another bad comic superhero movie getting covered on HDTGM. A double feature of Roger Corman and Josh Trank's FF movies would make for a perfect live show pairing. Because they both need to be covered. I've seen the Corman one three times in my life and The Jeweler alone deserves a lot of the discussion.

Holy shit, there was almost a CGI remake of this made in 2013 produced by Michael Eisner and directed by Oscar nominated short film director PES. Why the fuck would they think this film warranted a remake?

I know the board skews younger but did anyone else collect GPK cards when they were kids?

I remember having the first and second runs, full sets each, before giving them away in elementary school.

The drunk one was always my favorite -- I obviously had no conception of drunkenness at the time.

I collected them as well but my parents hated them. So, I never had that many and certainly not a full set from any series. I really liked the Alien Ian one at lot.

My baby keeps vocalizing whenever a character in Garbage Pail Kids speaks forcing me to focus solely on the visuals. I wish I knew what I did to piss him off...

Making him watch Garbage Pail Kids is probably pissing him off.

If I've gotta do it then so does he! Besides, what else can I do? I'm not going to have him learn about interdimensional fart monsters on the street.

Very happy for Paul, this is also one of my favorite movies ever. I can't wait to watch.

Same cannot be said of a rebooted King of The Hill. I just got done marathoning every season and it ended on a darn near perfect note as long as you watched the actual season finale after the last aired episode.

The thought of it coming back without significant involvement from Mike Judge is troubling to say the least.

I love that movie. The end credits cracked me up as a kid, as an adult though... oh boy. At least the theme song is still rad.
