Best of the Worst: Supergirl, Captain America (1990), and Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four

March 9, 2014698 Comments

Superhero movies don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Let’s take a look back at the awkward years of comic book characters being brought to the silver screen with three notorious comic adaptation failures, including the infamous, never-officially-released Fantastic Four movie produced by Roger Corman.

Also, for anyone interested, there is in fact a documentary coming out about the bizarre history of the Roger Corman Fantastic Four movie: www.doomedthemovie.com

      If you look at the wider shot, it’s actually the feet of Jesus. Blasphemer.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Why did you ruin it for me?!

        • WrongWithYourFace

          Because Jesus is the truth of God and has though thus forsaken me, and all that jazz.

          And because I just sit here like an asshole.

          • Domo_Konnichiwa

            Is Jesus sitting there like an asshole? Seriously he has nothing better to do than sit on top of a movie shelf?

          • Gene Parmesan

            He goes where people need him most, and watching all these terrible films BOTW desperately need him.

          • WrongWithYourFace

            You need Jesus!

      • Josh Noble

        If you look closer you can see it is John Rhys Davies.

          007 looks different…

      Your writing is beautiful.

        He had you at “dicks”?

          I came at the first circle…

            Alexandr Solzhenitsyn is spinning in his grave.

            And that’s a good trick.

        • Mitchell Taco Nash

          My mind is so far in the gutter that he had me at ‘d’.

  • Luke Bechtel

    haha awesome

  • Hale

    Aw, I thought you guys wanted to do Superman IV for a line up like this.

    Still, this is quite a batch of stinkers.

    • Alex Lee

      I guess their comments in the Man of Steel review.is enough.

  • shavo

    MFW theres a new video

    • Paulus Cañamonjas

      This is delicious!!!

  • Stephen Higham

    Oh man, I love you guys. KEEP MAKING RANDOM CRAP!!!

    • Showbiz Pizza Bear

      These craps aren’t random, sir. They’re stylistically designed to be this way.

  • Edyed

    I could almost swear I had AIDS and heroin addiction before I saw a new episode of the Best of the Worst.

  • Svas Tara

    YEY! :)
    new one, and all movies it seems! :)

  • Kyl

    I love these so much it’s getting a little sad.

  • Adzl33t

    Great episde. I know these movies as Channel Awesome fodder material, with Linkara, Nostalgia Critic, Nostalgia Chick, and Bennett. I still hope for more Wheel of the Worst.

    • Percy Gryce

      They do WOTW only every three months. We’ve got a long, painful wait.

    • ident

      I don’t know what those things are so I will assume it’s some kind of pornographic reference. There are children here, sir!

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    They got a BOTW logo! A BOTW logo!

    • Percy Gryce

      Not just a logo–a spinning logo. That’s a good trick.

      • WrongWithYourFace

        Just look how effectively The Thing used it against those guards.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Why does the spinning logo have a child-sized helmet and goggles in the cockpit?

    • Dixon Bawls

      Seems like a superhero chest emblem to me.

  • famousmortimer

    Didn’t fancy covering the Nick Fury movie with David Hasselhoff too?

    • TapewormBike

      Hoff is off.

    • Jason

      I’m guessing they’re saving it for an all-Hasselhoff edition of BotW. Or maybe an all-Baywatch edition, and they could throw-in Barb Wire and something with Carmen Electra.

      • Jet Jaguar

        Monster Island (2004) starring Carmen Electra as Carmen Electra, Nick Carter as Nick Carter, and Adam West as Dr. Harryhausen.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Rich Evans saying “Adorable” over and over at a villain writing the number 12 is the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen on this website.

    • Andrey Tarkovsky Reference

      I wonder if he’ll say that Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” is adorable?

  • Thanatos2k

    Rich Evans should have come dressed as Space Cop

  • Clan:Rewired_CCW

    Supersonic Man would’ve been a good one in the line-up.

    • Uncle Sporkums

      Agreed! I told them about it a while ago.

  • Mathieu Benoit

    Tell Wizard to get bigger shirts

    • Andrey Tarkovsky Reference

      I think I’m gonna be sick. Stop the car.

    • stryker1121

      CYBER BULLY! CYBER BULLY!

    • TapewormBike

      Are you offering then?

    • Jason

      He wears those shirts IRONICALLY! OKAY? Now shuddup and let us enjoy Wizard’s man-boobs in all their glorious, hipster splendor.

    • WrongWithYourFace

      I read that comment, moved on to Jason’s, and somehow my mind swapped “shirts” into “boobs”.

    • Percy Gryce

      I was too busy reading the cool Venn diagram to notice the fit.

    • Paul Schumann

      Yeah those oreos and reeses don’t exactly help…

  • ApertureSilence

    The thing that elevates Supergirl for me is that Jerry Goldsmith truly gave it his all with the score, as was his custom regardless of whether a movie was any good or not.

    • TapewormBike

      James Newton Howard Syndrome, got it.

  • Alex

    I thought the scene where she presents the new suits was kinda sweet. I don’t know if it was the music, but it felt very sincere, something I miss in a lot of movies nowadays :(

    • Uncle Sporkums

      I felt the same way. The cute, innocent way she showed it off kinda helped too, in my opinion.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Until Rich Evans said “Try Again.” That totally took me out of the movie.

    • sepiajack

      Agreed, I’m sick of irony, meta, and sarcasm in movies, I can’t even remember the last genre film I saw with genuine earnestness to it.

  • Cesar Garcia

    “Albert Pyun, god rest his soul”

    But Albert Pyun is still alive, ya’ guys.

    • TJ

      Maybe Jay meant it as a request?

      • TapewormBike

        Or a confession.

    • Duckler

      Jay’s a Pyun-hound.

    • Mitchell Taco Nash

      If Mr. Plinkett can host a party for a bunch of dead celebrities, then they can wish someone’s soul rests in peace before their death.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    I saw that Cap movie several years ago, and the only thing I could remember is the “gonna be sick” recurring gag.

  • TJ

    Jack looks so different without his glasses.

    • Domo_Konnichiwa

      You gotta admit, Jack looks GREAT with a superhero mask.

  • TapewormBike

    Too soon?

  • TapewormBike

    This line up of movies makes uncomfortable amount of sense.

  • Guest

    Was this done on purpose?

  • playdude92 .

    Rich Evans is the only constant in an ever changing world.

    • Gene Parmesan

      As the world moves on, Rich Evans stands in the middle as the nexus to all realities. He’s what you’ll find when you reach the top of the Dark Tower.

      • ident

        If you mean an infinite loop of Evans, sounds like heaven.

  • Paul Schumann

    That Captain America car bit is in the running for top 5 funniest bad movie things I’ve ever seen in a BotW.

    • Jason

      What you don’t realize is that those scenes were important in establishing Captain America as an underhanded, sneaky weasel, so that the audience can root against him, only to be bitterly disappointed when he wins in the end. It was a daring move by the producers and writers, and I applaud them for their courage.

  • Proto

    Uhhhhh….

    • Marozeph

      Looks like he finally reached enlightenment through the power of bad movies.

    • TapewormBike

      I cannot stop hearing the music from 2001 while looking at it.

    • Percy Gryce

      Missing frames from the Zapruder film?

      Too soon?

  • Jason

    Everything they said about Supergirl just made me want to see it. A girl gets Superman-type powers and all she wants to do with them is frolic with bunnies, fly by ponies, try on bras and get into cat-fights over a handsome man? And she’s extremely flighty (not a pun) and can’t focus on any one thing? Sounds like the most realistic super-heroine movie ever made.

  • Buzz Mcfly

    I’ll never be able to hear about that old Fantastic Four movie without immediately thinking about Arrested Development.

    • sepiajack

      True!!

    • Paul Schumann

      ugh that’s gross. I almost completely blocked Tobias’ “method one” girlfriend out of my memory… almost

  • Striker, Ted

    Hmmm what did a young Jack living on a farm see in this movie? I wonder…

    • Zero Sum

      Quite an entertaining movie if you’re under 10 years of age. Literally the only thing I remember about it is that Supergirl gave me quite the raging boner.

      • Striker, Ted

        That was her real super power.

    • GraphicsAndBeer

      Jack has a big case of the NotGays, I do as well :)

      • Striker, Ted

        She’d give Liberace a case of the not-gays, and he’s dead!

  • LelouchtheFilial

    “If I can’t hit you, I can at least have your spawn.”
    Speaking of which, Spawn was another shitty superhero movie.
    It was raining heavily outside when I saw it, lightning was flashing across the sky, and I hoped to God that the power would just go out. I wouldn’t have been content with just turning off the movie or turning off the TV– I just wanted the TV to go completely blank so as to be exorcised of that demonic abomination.
    If you make a movie about someone with hellish powers, fine. The film ITSELF doesn’t need to be possessed by Satan.

    • Hale

      There are so many horrible old superhero movies out there, they could easily do hero-themed episodes like they did for Wheel of the Worst. And they could put that spiffy logo to more use!

    • Cameron Vale

      The CGI Hell in Spawn is about as bad as the CGI Human Torch in Corman’s Fantastic Four.

  • Pissernacht

    Nice work with that special Best of the Worst logo. Are you guys thinking about branching out into superhero work? If so, please save us from these fucking Playstation ads…

    Yeah, Sony, I’m calling you the fuck out! You can bitch about how I can “share and care” by recording myself playing your games, but, well, that’s damn sure not going to happen unless you start ADVERTISING SOME FUCKING GAMES! So shut the cunting, pissing, shitting, horse-fallating, dog-humping hell up!

    …aside from that yeah, I’ll take your words for it and look up that Fantastic Four movie. Doesn’t look half bad all things considered!

    • Waldente

      Because of selective advertising we saw different ads.

      • Joao Marcos de Aquino

        Seriously? People still don’t have add blocks? In 2014?

        • ident

          Ad blockers steal hot dogs from the mouth of Richevans. How can he police space when you’re slapping hot dogs out of his mouth?

      • Josh Noble

        This guy saw horse fellatio, apparently, and was either appalled or intrigued.

        I must be seeing the wrong things because all I see is Buzz Lightyear looking like an idiot.

        • Domo_Konnichiwa

          I keep getting whiskey commercials, and I don’t even drink booze. Wanna trade?

      • Pissernacht

        What’d you see then? And do you keep seeing it?

        I’m seriously on the verge of strangling the internet if I see or hear that faggot-y commercial of Sony’s one more time…

        • Waldente

          Just these days I have the best example for targeted ads.
          Two weeks ago I wanted to visit a site that hadn’t payed their hosting bill and so I was forwarded to the hosting service “Hostgator” (dotcom). From that day on I get ads in the form of video clips both here and on youtube for the gator and in form of still pictures on all kind of sites. There is one on top of this page. I don’t care about hosting at all but this was really interesting in how obvious it was. Maybe go there and see if you get the ads. Maybe look at some corn-flakes, cars or deodorant and keep an eye open for new ads.

          Besides I even get german ads on here because I am german.

  • Zero Sum

    I like that you mentioned the ’79 Captain America :) They released a sequel in the same year with what is probably one of the best movie titles ever, “Captain America 2: Death too Soon.”

    But the real reason I wanted to bring that up here is that Reb Brown played Steve Rogers in those movies, the very same actor who brought ‘Yor: The Hunter from the Future’ to life on VHS machines around the world.

  • stryker1121

    Would love to see you guys do some of the 80s-era low budget Spider-Man films, where the Spidey’s web-shooters released basketball nets onto his foes.

  • Gene Parmesan

    You promised us Superman 4!

  • Tardo

    It’s funny you mentioned The Human Torch looking like Denny because when I saw this girl I thought of a younger and not Miss Piggy looking Lisa.

  • Shane Von Russell

    I don’t like you bad talking Fay Dunaway. How could you, Rich Evans? How could you?

    • ident

      Richevans has nothing but respect for Fay Dunaway. Faye Dunaway, however, sold him some bad coke in ’87 and she can go fuck herself as for as Richevans is concerned.

  • sepiajack

    That was great!
    Also I’m loving the huge amount of new content from the RLM lately!!

    • ident

      There are a few typos in there. I’m sure you meant to say “Make a Plinkett Review, you fat homos!”

      • Percy Gryce

        Speaking of fat homos, Doc of the Dead premieres on EPIX this weekend. That’s right, Mr. Plinkett will be featured on basic cable! How is this not national news? Why is there no presidential proclamation? No ticker tape, no dancing girls? What is wrong with this fucking country?

        At least we Plinkettes should be high-steppin’ and cheering.

  • Rei Grim

    I finally know what Captain America’s power is: stealing cars.

    • Percy Gryce

      It’s not even robbery–it’s barely larceny by trick.

      • Striker, Ted

        Grand Theft Auto: Captain America.

        • Rei Grim

          PSAT! Yeah! Now I wish Chris Evans would do that in the new movies! Pretends he is sick, punches Nick Fury and steals his flying battleship, invades North Korea and challenges Kim Jong-un to a game of basketball on the carrier’s deck! Space Jam 2: Electric Boggaloo

      • Dixon Bawls

        Felony shenanigans.

    • Cameron Vale

      It seems like someone was working through some personal issues in the process of writing the movie. Perhaps in childhood, the writer often got carsick, and often fantasized of secretly being a hero feigning carsickness for cunning reasons. Or maybe the writer has some kind of anxiety due to being either a victim or perpetrator of motor vehicle theft, and gets a strange catharsis from recreating the situation with a superhero substituted for the offender.

  • asdf

    This whole video was just an advertisement for NOS energy drinks. Wake up, sheeple!

    • Mitchell Taco Nash

      Whenever someone says ‘sheeple’ without irony or sarcasm, a part of me dies inside.

      • Gene Parmesan

        Maybe that’s because you’re a conformist group-thinker who’s stuck in the herd on a bandwagon.

        • Percy Gryce

          A bandwagon . . . full of lemmings.

          • Domo_Konnichiwa

            Is the bandwagon filled with lemmings, or is it a bandwagon made OF lemmings?

          • Mitchell Taco Nash

            Yes.

        • Josh Noble

          Stuck in the herd…on a band wagon. Are we talking about a college marching band in a parade now?

  • Jeremy Davis

    Whenever I hear Rich Evans laugh, I get a raging erection.

      don’t we all?

    • Mitchell Taco Nash

      Whenever women hear it, they get impregnated.

      • shanebroughton

        No, it’s the opposite of getting pregnant…

        • Mitchell Taco Nash

          Whenever women hear it, they get unpregnant?

          Here’s the story on why my icon is what it is, from the first shitty little MSpaint comic I made years ago: http://faddlechud.tumblr.com/post/16726713165/this-was-the-first-one-i-did-based-on-a-guy-i-saw

          • Domo_Konnichiwa

            You’re good at making no-boned strippers.

          • Percy Gryce

            I think you should call yourself “Dollar Collar.”

            It’s like poetry, it rhymes.

          • Mitchell Taco Nash

            I made a comic once too.

      • WrongWithYourFace

        I don’t know what your intention is, but if it’s to make me laugh until I choke, it’s working.

        I swear, I was thinking about you every second of the making of the gif. I merely adopted the gifs. You were born in them! Molded by them!

        • http://faddlechud.tumblr.com/ Faddlechud

          It was a combination of being surprised/impressed that you made a gif from the new episode faster than I could, and also that there happened to be a scene from the episode that perfectly summed up how it felt to be beaten to the punch.

          You have the gift of gif, and I salute you for it.

          • Percy Gryce

            Get a room, you two.

          • WrongWithYourFace

            Thank you. That gif truly is the perfect response. It never gets old. Every time I see it I go http://i.minus.com/iUSXVKoCEjmwT.gif

          • Dr. Blake Downs

            The real question that needs to be answered about the origin of your avatar is whether the stripper on stage actually grabbed the dollar collar.

          • http://faddlechud.tumblr.com/ Faddlechud

            Well of course she did, it’s money. But it was the fact that this guy was standing there so blankly like he was waiting in line at the DMV.

    When it comes to superhero movies I’ve enjoyed a few but not a lot of them. The
    strange thing was as I was watching this I got the impression that a lot of
    these movies had the same flaws as more successful ones. Now granted I overlook
    things but the movie with the lowest budget was judged the best wall being
    considered the worst I saw many fans. I mean the movies infamous. However, now
    that I think about it, it was mostly people complain about the bad graphics.

        I once saw this short movie on one of those old stations. Anyways, it was about
        this guy watching a play and it going back and forth between the actual play
        and what he was imagining he was watching. Some B movies should be laughed at
        and others deserve to be filled in.

    Thanks for this. Growing up in the 90′s these are all movies I wanted to see but I never made the time to watch them. Saved me a lot of pain. One thing I can say about the Capt. American film… at least they had the balls to show the Nazi symbols, unlike the new films. Kinda takes the punch out of cap kicking nazi ass when they completely break the films from history and reality. Also, that one guy likes Super-girl way too much. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

      Roger Corman has had various levels of distance from projects he was attached to. He sometimes let directors have complete artistic control, so long as they stay under budget and on time. Targets is a classic B movie that was the result of Corman telling Peter Bogdanovich to make whatever he wanted so long as he used Boris Karloff and stayed under $130k.

Along with all the other doctorates she got, why wouldn’t she have squeezed in an M.D. It’s the same thing that bugged me about Fringe: Walter did autopsies and performed other medical procedures in almost every episode, but his doctorate was presumably in physics. I don’t know a physicist who could do the medical procedures that he did. M.D./Ph.D.s are pretty common. Why haven’t these writers heard of that? /rant

  • Wildride

    Supergirl is exactly the movie the Salkinds wanted to make. In fact, all the good things in Superman I and II were the things that got the director fired. All the shitty stuff in them as well as this, Superman III and IV was what they were looking for. I’m not entirely what the Salkinds had against the Superman franchise that they felt the need to buy up the rights and use them to produce horrible movies, but that’s what they went with.

  • Wildride

    “She’s a girl, so she has to want a man, right?”
    “Superman spends half his time trying to woo Lois Lane. Supergirl should have a love interest, too, right?”

    It’s kind of a double standard that people think it’s weird or sexist that Supergirl would have a love interest, but no one bats an eye at Superman wanting to bang an Earth girl (apparently they are easy).

    • Jack Packard

      It’s not just that she has a love interest. She forgets that she has to save her entire species because she sees a cut boy. There was no plot MacGuffin in the first Superman movie so he had time to meet people and character build. Supergirl has a mission that she doesn’t do because she sees a shirtless(handsome) man.

      • Wildride

        That’s fine, and all, but a) the reviewers attacked the idea of including a love interest at all (see the line I was paraphrasing) and b) the thing you describe didn’t happen in the movie. Faye Dunaway’s character sidetracked her take over the world plans because she saw a shirtless guy. Under the influence of a love spell, he started following Supergirl around like a puppy and imposing himself on her.

        She’s saving a guy in distress from the clutches of the villain of the movie. Superman goes back in time to save the chick he wants to bang, letting thousands of people (that he’d previously saved) die. Nice priorities, hero! Here’s a thought: If you can go back in time, go back to before you screwed up and caused mass casualties by letting Luthor trick you.

        The point is, though, the reviewers specifically deride the film’s producers for including a love interest at all — And only because she’s a girl. That’s what I was addressing.

        • ident

          But you can’t take that comment in isolation. The comment was not simply in response to a love interest, but in response to the film as a whole (bra stuffing, bunny staring, et al.).

        Actually…

        She does not abandon her quest.
        She has that MacGuffin Jr. wristband that she uses to locate The MacGuffin. That’s how she got to be so close to it instead of say looking for it across China somewhere. Or Australia.

        BUT… Faye Dunaway closes the MacGuffin inside a statue/bowl made of led – and Supergirl loses contact with it.
        So she decides to lay low around the parts where her wristband last lit up.

        Trouble is, they messed up explaining that part in editing.
        They have Supergirl discover her powers. She starts flying.
        We have our obligatory Kryptonian flying around the world noticing how it is all beautiful scene.
        Which is where they probably realized that the flying scene was becoming too long – so they end it with Supergirl awkwardly fingering her wristband and then staring at the sunset while striking up the hands-on-hips Superman pose.

        Then we cut over to Faye Dunaway putting the MacGuffin in the led statue.
        Then suddenly Supergirl is flying again only now it is night, looks at her blinking wristband, lands… and that’s where her encounter with rapist truckers begins.

        Cut out the sunset scene and change the order in which those last two scenes happen – and it makes perfect sense.
        She follows the signal, loses contact, lands, lays low and takes up a secret identity in a place where she would be unnoticeable.

        But, then that’s SIX MINUTES WITHOUT A SINGLE WORD SPOKEN. That’s one 20th of the entire movie, including credits.

        So, they cut all that flying in two – and Supergirl seemingly loses interest in her mission despite very earnestly explaining it to the rapist truckers before beating them off.

        I mean up. Beating them up.

    • Hale

      There’s a huge difference between a character having a love interest and a character defined by gender stereotypes.

      If they made a Superman film with the same mindset of this Supergirl film, he and Lex would abandon whatever they were doing in the plot to both woo Lois Lane, all while Superman chugged beer, ate raw meat, and visited a strip club with his broskies.

      • Like Icare

        Isn’t that what Joker and Batman did back in 1989?

        • http://hardycases.com/ Hale

          No, not at all. While there was some contention over Vicky Vale, it didn’t derail the plot that was already going on. In fact it was quite the opposite; because Vale was a reporter and a surrogate for the viewer, we got first-hand insight into what made the Joker tick, and we got to see a more human side of Batman as a result of her relationship with Bruce. What drew the two characters to her was more than just “I NEED TO BANG SOMETHING, CUZ I HAVE A PENIS!” While she was essentially a damsel-in-distress, she did serve a greater narrative purpose in the overall story.

          And unlike the Supergirl movie, Batman and Joker don’t conform to broad stereotypes associated with their gender, unless you consider making an art out of murdering people and dressing up like a bat to fight crime to be typical “guy things”.

          • Like Icare

            Umm… “I NEED TO BANG SOMETHING, CUZ I HAVE A PENIS!” is EXACTLY what drew them to her.

            Joker almost says those exact words. “I’m about to get a new girl Bobby. I’m of a mind to make some mookie.”

            Meanwhile Bruce Wayne is completely entranced with that blonde at his party he can’t take his eyes off of her – and even decides to reveal his secret identity to her after one night.
            Stuttering like a schoolboy. Batman.

            You should rewatch that movie with fresh eyes. Like you’re totally green. It turns out that the Joker is right there in the opening credits, riding a lawn mover.

          • http://hardycases.com/ Hale

            I never said that them interested in her sexually wan’t part of why they were drawn to her. But for the overall narrative, it served a greater purpose than just the two of them looking for a girlfriend/lover/whatever.

          • Like Icare

            “But for the overall narrative, it served a greater purpose than just the two of them looking for a girlfriend/lover/whatever.”

            Batman and Joker’s relationship to Vicki Vale serves a greater purpose to the narrative? How?

            You could cut her out of the story completely and it would still be the same story.
            Or replace her with another girl. Or two.

            Her ONLY influence on the flow of the story (other than doing the screaming and being “in distress”) is to serve as an excuse for Wayne and Joker to bump into each other so Joker could essentially tell Wayne “Oh, BTW, I killed your parents all those years ago.”

            AND THEY ARE BOTH THERE ONLY BECAUSE THEY BOTH WANT TO FUCK HER!

            Joker has no plans for her. He is in it literally cause he wants to fuck Vicki Vale.

            Batman/Wayne is there to meet the Joker ONLY because he wants to confess being Batman to her, cause after fucking her he felt the urge to come clean.
            Because she is special and tenacious and she will perhaps, maybe, discover it by herself eventually – that’s the explanation they give us.

            After that point she once again delegated the role of damsel in distress wearing a crown of a scream queen.
            Joker doesn’t take her to the top of the cathedral as bait – again, he just wants to fuck her.
            Batman doesn’t count on her either – he beats up Joker’s goons one by one and completely ignores her while beating up the Joker.
            She plays no role in his plans. He barely acknowledges her.

          • http://hardycases.com/ Hale

            I already explained that.

            The characters themselves are only interested in her romantically/sexually. That is true. But, her role in the structure of the storyline isn’t just to be love interest; she’s the surrogate/avatar for the viewer. Whether or not you liked how she was used or even thought it was entirely necessary is your own opinion.

            My point was, compared to the Supergirl movie, there was at least more thought and purpose to her being in Batman’s plot than random beefcake Supergirl and Witchy-Poo both had the hots for.

          • Like Icare

            My point is that it’s the same shit under a different label.

            Here’s a fun exercise to determine if either of those two is there primarily as a sex object – remove their sexuality.
            Imagine either of them as a person of opposite sex, or a pree-teen child or an older person still doing the same job.

            Note how both those characters disappear from most scenes they are in.
            And as their primary role is taken away… their secondary roles can be transferred to other characters and they can be written out entirely.

            Vicki Vale would get blended with Alexander Knox – becoming something like a Jimmy Olsen.
            Just Ethan would probably expand Jimmy Olsen’s girlfriend.

            That didn’t come out right… Expand her character… role…

    Thing is dubbed because, although the actor is wearing a mask, the character isn’t, so his voice should be coming out clearly. But Doom, the character, is wearing a mask, so he sounds muffled because that’s what he should sound like.

    I’m not surprised the FF one turned out to be the best. The weird thing about Corman is that apparently he was actually quite capable of making a good movie. It’s just that he placed making a buck above it all. But it seems his “Poe” movies from the 60′s – where he had a bit more time and money to work – are pretty good.

    He was certainly no Albert Pyun. Man, what a dull, boring director. Looking at a lot of his movies, you’d expect they’d be fun cheese fests (Van Damme fighting cyborgs in the post-apocalyptic future), but then they just turn out to be boring as hell (like Cyborg did). Every Pyun flick I’ve seen was completely boring.

    • Hale

      In Corman’s defense, his churning out of no-budget, z-grade films is actually what kept alot of theaters afloat in the 50′s or 60′s.

    • TapewormBike

      Bucket of Blood, shot in two days on a set used to shoot Little Shop of Horrors – brilliant. If you want to see antihipster movie, this one from 1959 is the best.

    • Reginald Van Der Slythe III

      Have you seen The Sword and the Sorcerer? It’s the one decent Pyun movie I’ve seen (although I have an odd fondness for Mean Guns that I can’t really justify). The fact that he has claimed it’s the one he had the least control over may have something to do with it. It’s definitely worth a look.

      DO NOT WATCH THE SEQUEL. Easily one of the three worst movies I have ever seen. It makes his Captain America movie look like a Werner Herzog film.

            I’m well, well aware of that. But the movie, not the series itself, isn’t considered (by alot of people, not saying myself), to be really, really bad. Like even people who like or love the TV series seem to dislike it. I can’t speak for myself because I’ve never seen it, but that’s what I’ve gathered through osmosis.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            Perhaps you misunderstand the meaning of the phrase, “it’s kinda his thing.” It does not imply ownership or dominion of any kind. Perhaps you are also unaware of what is meant when a request begins with the word “please.” It tends to imply that the person being asked is under no particular obligation to obey the request. If any monopoly was in place, the language would probably have been a bit different and it wouldn’t have been my place to make the request.

            Done being a pedant yet?

          • Hale

            Saying “pretty please” and “it’s kinda his thing”, ending with a smiley, comes off more passive-aggressive and condescending than you probably think.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            Maybe in some faddish world where everyone assumes nobody is genuine. Thanks for letting everybody know what _you_ really mean when _you_ say those things.

          • Hale

            It’s because of a little four-letter word called “tone”. Even unspoken text carries a very specific tone, and you’re initial comment didn’t carry anything genuine in the way you claimed it to mean. You said quite clearly they shouldn’t talk about the Reb Brown Captain America movie because it was someone else’s “thing”, and added cutesy wording to it.

            And you should change “failtroll” back to “pedant” because it’s more accurate and looks less idiotic.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            You’re so desperate to make it look like you’re making any kind of sense, but it all comes back to the fact that I meant only and exactly what I said. I’m sorry you desperately need to paint all people who say things nicely as dicks. It’s a cruel world and we all need our ways of coping. I, for example, just assume that anyone who imagines cruelty where there was only kindness, probably needs it to be repeatedly pointed out to them that, ultimately, that perception problem is theirs and theirs alone, and that people will respond better to them if they ever learn to knock that shit off.

          • Hale

            …But that’s exactly what you said. Do you need a screencap of your own post?

            And if that’s really what you mean, whatever it was, than it brings me to a five-letter word: “naive”.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            No. Perhaps you misunderstand the meanings of the phrases “please,” and “kinda his thing.” Oh wait, we’ve gone in a circle now.

            Yknow, I’m going to change tack and observe that your Disqus profile doesn’t paint you as someone who’s just a troll. So why are you starting now? Or do you really, honestly believe that everyone shares your opinion that “please” and suchlike are always dishonest embellishments? I do not come from that world.

            If you’ll step back with me for a moment, I wonder if you’ll agree that people who genuinely value things being phrased in courteous ways, and people who assume that courtesy is always dishonest, are going to have trouble getting along.

            Because if you do agree with that, then why would you even willingly engage with such a person in the first place? And if you don’t agree with that, then are you saying you are some kind of anti-courtesy missionary for the internet? Seeking out and criticizing the word “please” wherever you see it proffered?

            I’m barely even being facetious at this point. Maybe you just delete your trolling messages afterwards to foll people who check. That’s the main reason I’m having trouble giving any benefit of the doubt at this point.

            Are you just having a bad day, made a quick trolling comment to blow off steam, got a combative response, and now it’s your cathartic engagement of the evening? Or are you just sliding into nihilism and I’m the fortunate soul watching it happen?

          • Hale

            Maybe it’s because I’m sick of people with their heads up their ass telling other guys they can’t talk about a movie because someone from TGWTG did. Hell, I’m sick of people telling other TGWTG critics they can’t review a movie because someone else on their site did.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            Heh. Well I can wholeheartedly say that you and I have something in common if we are sick of the way Channel Awesome jockeys behave. I basically stopped going there when they fired Spoony for being trollable by the penis. If you want to find out just how crappy some of those people can be, and you want to be frigging furious about just how petty this crap gets, google “Why did Spoony get fired” and bring alcohol, because the rabbit hole is deep and it’s actually a rectum where nice people get buttraped in the head.

            Spoony isn’t with TGWTG. His then-girlfriend gathered a faction of Channel Awesome jocks to help her troll him with sexual abuse rumors, publicly, until his bipolar ass snapped on Twitter. Once they were done bull-baiting him, then he finally _did_ do something worth shaming him over, and that’s how he got fired.

            Aaaaaaaaaaanyway. Now your choices are either to take the Troll pill — call me a white knight and take some other tack to attempt to annoy me — or you can take the Groovy pill — and you can be like, oh, so you’re just trying to request professional courtesy as a fan of yet another non-TG channel, and wow, what a bunch of crap that story sounds like. For my part, I relish in combat with trolls. I say nice things on the internet, and if someone has a problem with that, they find out I was the wrong target to pick because I’ll just point really deep into their soul at what a shitheel they’re acting like, and I’ll be right about it, and it’ll be there for all time.

            I recommend the groovy pill. Olive branch is there if you can just take my OP at face value.

          • Hale

            He got fired because he made creepy comments to a co-worker and other people got tired of that shit.

            And your initial thesis was “Pretty please, leave the 70′s Captain America movies for Spoony. Reb Brown is kinda his thing :)” Taken purely at face value you’re not implying, but outright requesting, RLM should not discuss The 70′s Reb Brown movie because Spoony already did. I don’t see many benign reasons for wanting that. You either don’t want the possibility of two conflicting opinions on a particular piece of media someone you liked has already covered. Or, you believe that because Spoony has already reviewed it, no one else should, either because what’s said about it has already been said, or he’s the only one who has the right to say it.

          • http://nathanhawks.us/ Nathan Hawks

            I make no statement of what RLM “should or should not” do. This and everything else you’re saying here, is a failed attempt to put words in my mouth. I’ve never met anyone with any level of literacy who would interpret anything going on here the way you’re interpreting it.

            You gave the dictionary definition of the word “please,” kept calling Hale a failtroll (THAT’LL gain the respect of people over 13) and used some backwards logic to make it seem as if “don’t talk about Captain America, because Spoony does it” DOESN’T imply that you think that RLM shouldn’t talk about it because Spoony talked about it.
            And then you checked Hale’s disqus to… get dirt on him?

    Peter Cook was in Supergirl? Poor sod, I hope he got a good few quid for that.
    Aw, I just read on wikipedia that Dudley Moore turned down the role of Zaltar so they got Peter Cook to play Nigel. At Dudley Moore’s suggestion, no less. Nice of Moore to throw some work Cook’s way.
    I’m just glad they managed to fit at least one of them into Supergirl.

    • John Smith

      The original idea for “Superman III” was to have Dudley Moore play Mr. Mxyzptlk.

    You said they both had low budgets. As far as connections go it’s one step above that they were both shot on film. Also, I’m sure you’ve noticed that Quickcuts, so far, have been strictly new movies. But Primer is a good movie so bring it up every chance you get, I suppose.

    What did he see in Supergirl? Come on, as a boy in the 80′s I had a HUGE crush on Helen Slater after that movie – yeah, as an adult, it’s corny and all, but for a kid back then wow, I loved it.

  • catnep

    Good shew. I liked this version of the round table! While I’m not a big fan of superhero movies, this was still fun to watch.

    • Dan

      Yeah, also not really interested in superhero movies

      • TapewormBike

        Me neither but I love me some superheroin. And girls who are heroes as well.

      • catnep

        I’ve always preferred movies like Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans. Some mythology and giant campy monsters? Check! Scootch over and pass the chips…

        • Now I Get It

          I’ve had to think about this ever since, as it struck me as true.

          Myths have a lot of implausible elements, but they’re never set in the real world anyway. Whereas superhero movies take the most implausible parts of myth – Gods and monsters – then set them in the real world, to battle as superheroes and super villains who are also meant to be real people somehow.

          So, it ends up like opera: if you don’t believe the big aria (the boss fight) at the end, you’re not going to enjoy the show. Whereas myths, whose characters are truer to their own world, can tell a whole story that offers a fuller experience.

          • catnep

            Wow… Mind meld. What generally bothers me about superhero stories is the deck is always stacked in their favor. The outcome is assured. No matter what is thrown at the SH he comes out of it okay, eventually. Why bother? If the formula dictates he’ll always get his groove back, why should I invest? I want to at least believe* the struggle is real. I want to think, “Is he going to make it?” And I’m really going to hell for this: Sometimes I want to like the opponent more than him and be surprised that I’ve started rooting for him instead! That’s never happened to me with a superhero story. It does happen with myth because those stories are meant to reveal parts of our own nature. Sometimes we find the monster more sympathetic because his suffering is somehow like our own. Whereas the superhero is always shiny and winning. I don’t know anybody like that.

          • Now I Get It

            I agree with all of this, and what proves it all, pretty clearly, is the difference between the two “Hellboy” movies.
            The first has a simpler, more superhero-type conflict, as opposed to the second, in which Guillermo del Toro shifted the setting into a mythical world, which he populated with fantastical characters who had still faced fairly human alternatives but chosen wrongly. And because of that, it was possible to shift one’s point of view, and empathy, from character to character as the moment required. I’m a big fan of that second movie (3-disc edition) and Toro in general.

          • Percy Gryce

            Moar Hellboy, please.

          • catnep

            Aw. Further proof that crochet can make anything adorable!

            I’ve only seen the first Hellboy. I really like Ron Perlman so that drew me… but after that I just lost track of it. Sounds like I should check out the second for the fantastical elements? The only other Del Toro I recall seeing (that I knew was him) is Pan’s Labyrinth, which I liked even though the story was depressing.

          • Now I Get It

            Well, if you’ve never seen “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”, then you’re likely not tracking the progress of the upcoming “Hellboy III”. Hmph! I’m sensing a real lack of completism here. That, and that you probably imagine you’ve got better things to do.

          • catnep

            Frenchie, Fanboyism is a DISEASE. But you’ve been this way for a long long time, replacing one addiction for another… first it was shoes and then it was stealing the neighbors’ newspapers. Now it’s zoning out in front of the picture box for days on end. Please stop, your breaking your mother’s heart!

            http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/12/31/article-2531646-1A5A560100000578-222_306x386.jpg

          • Now I Get It

            I’m a bad dog, I know; I don’t always bring back the same ball you threw for me. This one I found in the tall grass next to a sleeping vixen. It must have belonged to one of her kits – an obvious adolescent fanboy – but it would have been dangerous to return it, so…

            Anyhey, the straight, grown-up poop on Hellboy II is, creature-wise, it can’t be beat. Most of them – Cathedral Head, Fragglewump, Mr. Wink, Cronie Troll, Bethmoora Goblin, etc. – are costumes plus practical effects, stunningly realistic, and essential to the plot. CGI was used only for the very large (Forest God, Causeway Giant, and Golden Army) and the very small (tooth fairies). Same with the fantastic worlds they all move through and the fights, highly implausible but performed by world class tumblers and the odd fly-wire.

            The plot for Hellboy III gets mighty apocalyptic, after Liz strikes a deal with the Angel of Death.

    still the worst movie i’ve personally seen is “Future War”

    Future War is a 1997 direct-to-video American science fiction film about an escaped human slave fleeing his cyborg masters and seeking refuge on Earth. He is being pursued by cyborg slavers and dinosaurs that they use as “trackers.” During the movie’s production crew members joked that the film should end up on Mystery Science Theater 3000 …this movie makes all other movies look good…

    • Not Claude Akins

      “During the movie’s production crew members joked that the film should end up on Mystery Science Theater 3000 ”

      And it did!

    When I heard you were watching FF a while back I watched it in preparation, and I felt the exact same way. If it had the effects/costume budget of the newer films it would easily be superior. I also watch Captain America, and it was just boring. Why did no one point out the repeated earlobe pulling, or the semi-”A Christmas Story”-reunion of Melinda Dillon and Darren McGavin?

  • Alexa

    I think its kind of harsh to say that the actors in Supergirl weren’t giving it their all as well. Sure its still a bad movie but it really has less to with the actors and more the bad script.

    • LelouchtheFilial

      Jay was talking about how Faye Dunaway hammed it up APPROPRIATELY, like Gene Hackman did as Lex Luthor. It didn’t sound like he was blaming the actors.

      • Alexa

        I guess “harsh” wasn’t the right word, annoying is more appropriate, since I think the actors in Supergirl were slightly better than in Fantastic Four. Yeah the actors there are given it their all but from what I’ve seen of the film its not much. But A for effort *shrugs*

        • LelouchtheFilial

          I get you, but I think that the BOTW crew just found the Fantastic Four cast to be more… endearing.

            You’re too humble, Jay. Plinkett is the point of every documentary. Even the one’s he isn’t in. Because he lives in your heart, Jay. He lives in your heart.

      I forgot that´s even coming. So many tentacles RLM has reaching all over the place (in a non creepy way…that sentence is beyond repair I guess). Btw, was there any promotion of the Ghostbusters 2 commentary? I was off Twitter for a while, so maybe there, but basically I found out about it from I think you Percy and some other fellow commenters. I think RLM are now literally playing games with us, hiding new content (the fact that it is known is also a proof that most of us are desperate enough to browse all the stuff we´ve seen already 100+ times).

    Mr. President – Thanks.

  • Quonk

    Well, now here’s the funny part: The “small German production company” that had acquired the rights to the “Fantastic Four” brand, was actually Bernd Eichinger’s “Constantin Film” – one of the most sgnificant European production companies (known by high-grossing movies and franchises such as “The Neverending Story”, “The Name of the Rose” etc.). And here’s the thing: While the Corman-directed “Fantastic Four” movie was indeed a sort of “throwaway-projct”, it was the same production company that also produced the dreadful “Fantastic Four” movies of the 2000s. Seems they just couldn’t find a decent director or scriptwriter for either incarnation of the franchise….

    • ident

      It was never released because Marvel bought the film and, reportedly, destroyed all prints. According to Wikipedia, anyway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fantastic_Four_(film)#Marketing_and_release_plans

      • Quonk

        That shows what a skilled businessman Eichinger was: Buying the movie rights cheaply, investing 1 million bucks to retain the rights, getting bought out of the original contract for MORE than 1 million and then doing a high-budget version (which, while being utter rubbish, still grossed more than thrice its budget).
        At the end of the day it’s a pity that Roger Corman wasn’t hired again – he might’ve made a WATCHABLE F4 movie; even though it’s hard to tell whether Corman really would’ve known what to do with a $90 million budget…

        • ident

          Good points all around.

        • NotRickBerman

          He would have made a 45 movie series, with each having a $2M budget.

          And it still would have been a better love story than Twilight.

    I don’t know how dumb or weak-willed anyone would have to be to see peoples’ attitudes on this page toward me as anything but douchy asshats gangpiling onto someone based on ultra-flimsy justification just to be dicks, but I’m not that weak-willed idiot. That’s why I fought back and that’s why I dropped out. Unlike Rich I don’t get paid to be a buttmonkey. Unlike Jay you can suck my dick.

    If you reply, I will chuckle at your making a liar of yourself, in addition to having piped up to join week-old mob abuse just to scratch your own urge to be a tool.

        Plus, he made a statement (oh, sorry, a “request”) and people argued to the contrary because his stateme– request was stupid.

    The reason they put a lot of effort in the acting and story in Fantastic Four film even though there was no release is very simple: these actors and crew need stuff for their demo reel. I know of a LOT of projects that never see release that still have clips for demo reels.

    Not being a comic book guy, I never understood Captain America. He was supposed to be a WW 2 super US Army soldier, yet all he had was a shield, not even a sword. Shouldn’t he have a boatload of guns?

    • Jason

      I think Captain America having only a shield was symbolic, like he was just a defender, not an aggressor.

      • roaroar roarar

        except for when he chucks the shield at you. that shit coming straight for your face is pretty aggressive when you’re on the receiving end of it.

  • Cameron Vale

    That Captain America movie is awful. Neither Cap nor Red Skull have significant superpowers, in fact Cap spends the whole movie retreating from Red Skull’s minions simply because they have guns. The main difference between the two is that Red Skull is a genius that masterminds a plan to rule the world with the help of ingenious gadgets that he invented, and Cap is an idiot who believes that USA lost WW2 because he saw a German made car. I’m sure the movie would amuse people who despise the United States, but that’s no way to make a Captain America movie. A Fighting American movie, maybe.

    Anyone else notice the prop in the background at 38:40? Same prop was seen in a STNG episode and also in The Last Starfighter. One of Plinkett’s reviews points this out (I think its one of the Star Wars reviews as he’s discussion how the ‘fish out of water’ scenario works in SciFi movies as a way to add expository dialogue). Funny if the guys had pointed this out again in this review.
