05/21/2005: And did I say fanboy?
How could I have neglected to mention that, at today's screening of Revenge of the Sith, I was privileged to see previews for both Batman Begins and The Fantastic Four? Both look pretty good, though I have a feeling I'm going to like the FF a bit better than Batman (I have a slight pro-Marvel prejudice, but Gawd only knows it took them a while to get into the groove, cinematic adaptation-wise....).
What I would really like, though, is to somehow get my hands on a copy of the Oley Sassone directed (Roger "Mr. B-flick" Corman executive produced) 1994 turkey, The Fantastic Four, which was made solely to secure the rights to the film (and purportedly, to provoke the producers of this summer's The Fantastic Four to buy the '94 film for lotsa bux, just to prevent it from ever being released). I may someday get my wish; supposedly this film is one of the most bootlegged among sci-fi and comics fans.
