Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Dave, Jenn, Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 23 - Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (Dave)
Before Marvel reboots this film series for the 4th time, lets revisit this one. I don't care how much hate these Jessica Alba movie get, I loved them. This is the only version that got a sequel. The low budget 1994 wasn't even officially released and the 2015 reboot failed miserably. But these I enjoyed. Marvel will probably try to integrate it into the whole MCU by tying in the story or cross-referencing characters, guest appearances, etc. But I don't think they need that. FF can stand on its own. They don't need to have all the characters crossover.
Melanie - Em actually loves these versions. We have watched them several times. They have two of my fav actors in them - Ioan Gruffudd & Julian McMahon - and yes compared to the crazy Marvel movies available nowadays these are doomed to be relegated to the back. BUT If you like the Marvel Universe I would still say check them out and if you haven't seen them before watch for Chris Evans from before he was Captain America. I mean I am not even a big Marvel fan - then again maybe that's why I like them! It's kind of like if Legends of Tomorrow got together to make a Marvel movie lol
