I saw F4 this weekend. I checked my brain at the door and was very entertained. I wasn't looking for Batman Begins quality, so that's why it worked for me. Sure there were some gapping plot holes snd I felt they could have been a little smarted about how they figured out they had certain powers, but what's wrong with making a fun popcorn movie?
I also went to see Cinderella Man, but the screening got canceled because Charlie and Wedding Crashers were doing so well, so I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in stead.
I'm a big fan of the original, but I have to say the new one is very good and it is it's own movie. Every time I said to myself, well, I like they way the original did this and that, the new one put it's own twist in that made it appealing on another level. Sure it misses a lot of the magic the original held, but it has it's own magic and I have to give a hats off to Tim Burton for pulling it off. The Original is still a better movie IMO though, and I thought Depps performance worked.
