Completing our triple bill of terrible comic book films is 2015's universally-panned Fantastic Four. Mustering a whopping 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, one of the site's resident critics declares it to be a

poorly constructed, ineptly executed, flatfooted piece of Branded Product that plays as though it were written by a piece of software fed every superhero movie script to date and instructed to synthesize them.


A jumble of predictable but also incoherent plot turns, dreadful dialogue, and unfortunate visual choices.

Another critic dismisses it simply as a

malformed curio.

Let's get together to discuss, laugh at, criticize, and possibly even enjoy this decidedly terrible comic book film! The event will take place in the SFF chatroom Mos Eisley at

22:00 UTC on Thursday 28 July!

For reference, that's 3 pm PST, 6 pm EST, and 11 pm UK time (GMT+1).

(What's a "Movie Night", you ask? Your question has been wonderfully answered here.)

Three Four Cheers for RogueJedi!

Note that this film was nominated by RogueJedi, and we're holding this event in honour of his excellent work organizing the Great Science Fiction Fantasy Showdown! So come out and say thanks to Rogue for all his hard work!

Here is Rogue's original post nominating the film.

Availability: Apart from DVD, this film is available on Netflix (US and Canada at least), Amazon Prime, Apple Store, and Google Play.

(Many thanks to Randal'Thor and WadCheber for reminding me to complete this run of terrible comic book films, and thanks to Wad and AncientSwordRage for helping to set up this particular event.)
