Jessica Alba is WAY hot but i'm not sure i'm buying her acting skills - especially in this role. And big ben? the Thing is made of rock not lumpy brown foam rubber (that costume is horrible!). He's one of my favorite all-time characters (i love the brawlers) so i'm especially dissapointed in that designer's ideas of how the thing would look in "real" life. Seems to me they could have done a better job w/ that one... i mean it looks like a dude in a padded brown rubber suit in the trailers. weak.
This is definitely a netflix movie for me - and i promise i won't go into it w/ any real pre-conceptions (even after writing this post i swear!) - but let's just say i have a bad feeling. Maybe i'm just dissapointed in the current run of FF books... can we get two good UFF issues in a row?
ps i'm reserving judgement on batman begins because i actually think that looks pretty good - and a grittier batman is exactly what i want to see... and on the new superman movie. not sure yet i'm buying that clown they picked to play him - but i haven't seen any trailors or anything so i'll w/h judgement on that one for a bit (here's to hoping it's good).
