Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Fantastic Four

Published: Wednesday 2005-08-03.

I went to the cinema yesterday evening to see Fantastic Four. I didn’t really have any great expectations about the film being very good, especially not after recently having watched a good superhero film I was anticipating a minor disappointment, but since I always held Fantastic Four as my favourite superhero group I couldn’t resist going anyway.

The film has received a rather cold reception in the press, and I understand why. The film is quite slow and never really gets started, three quarters of the film is used to explain the background story and the actual battle with the supervillain is ridiculously short. My recommendation is to hold off seeing the film until it is available on rental DVD. Personally I will probably buy it, but I am going to wait until I find it for less then a hundred (which usually isn’t that hard, at least not in Norwegian kroner), mostly to complete my collection of superhero films.

By the way, it is interesting to note that while the TV channels spend the summer showing old re-runs and actively trying to get people not to watch TV, the film companies have big premieres. I can’t quite figure that one out.

Jag såg ett program på MTV "behind the scenes" om filmen Fantastic Four. Alla skådespelarna var *så* nöjda, och tyckte speciellt mycket om karaktärerna eftersom deras superegenskaper stämmer så bra med deras "vanliga" jag. De såg också väldigt mycket fram mot att få göra en uppföljare, men konstaterade att det hänger mycket på om folk ser första filmen. Månntro det blir en uppföljare?

Elementära dumheter. Filmen är bra och klart sevärd på bio!Jag håller till fullo med SvD:s rescensent som ger den ett fott betyg! En bra film som verkligen sätter karaktärerna på kartan och sedan dessutom bjuder på maffig action.

Kul att höra att det någon tyckte den var bra i alla fall. Då var kanske produktionen inte helt bortkastad i alla fall... :-)
