When Mrs. Mau and I walked up to the ticket booth, I said "We're trying to decide between Oceans , Pirates, or waiting an hour for Fantastic Four." Without hesitation the chick said "Please wait for Fantastic Four. Pirates is 3 hours long, and Oceans has good action, but it's not all that great." That was good enough for us.
Enjoyed it. The Silver Surfer was done excellently. A bunch of inconsistencies between this and the first with regards to their outfits, but other than that I have few complaints.
My biggest complaint? Jessica Alba's makeup people. They gave her these unnaturally blue eyes that distracted me during the FIRST scene of the movie, and only marginally (if at all) improved throughout the movie. They looked huge and fake. Kinda like Michael Jackson's eyes in the Thriller video? When he turned into the...cat/werewolf-thing? Right.
Know What I'm Sayin'??
