Episode 74: Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four'

The night never sleeps, and neither do J&J, for they are vampires. Vampire-men. ANYWAYS, Jon and Joel take a painful trip through the critically-panned 2015 reboot of 'Fantastic Four'. But is it really as bad as the Internet makes it out to be? Will Sue and Reed ever look each other in the eye? Did Victor von Doom ever have a normal human name? Is music just pattern recognition?

Meanwhile, is stress good for you, morally? Should kids just be kids for kid's sake? Was Ang Lee's 'Hulk' really that bad? Should "Trank" be a new adjective for Marvel failures? And 'The Fountain': now there's a good film.

Basil parfait.
