Do you remember the 2015 reboot of FANTASTIC FOUR (lovingly monikered FANT4STIC)? If you answered “No” then congratulations, you’ve won the day! I do remember the flick, but more so for its infamous reputation of studios clashing, reshoots, recuts and a director that was a bit of a hot head. That director would be Josh Trank whose first film, CHRONICLE, actually WAS a pretty fantastic superhero moive. Too fantastic, maybe? I’m not saying that the dude became overconfident while taking on his second film, but there were a few red flags.
Anyways, here we are four years later and Mr. Trank is still refusing to let us forget the crapfest that was his FANT4STIC. The dude just posted his own review of the movie online for all to see. He seems to recognize some of the film’s flaws, although the majority of the “review” is pretty self-indulgent as evidenced in the following pontification:
“I was expecting it to be much worse than it was. I literally haven’t seen it since like two weeks before it came out, and I was in a heavily fucking traumatized state of mind. Why? Eh, save that for another time.”
