Fantastic Four (2015): Or How a Superhero Movie Taught Me to Hate Myself

Sure, the 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four was bad, but what we’re here to figure out is if it was really THAT bad.

We’ve brought back Pat Leyland our go-to guy for terrible movies, to try to understand how much of the movie’s bad reputation is deserved.

Among other topics, we’ll get into

  • characters that act like they know they’re in a movie
  • what should have been added
  • what should have been left out
  • the weird pacing
  • whether the movie realizes how poorly it reflects on Millennials

So give a listen and let us know what you think in the comments.
