To Me, My Board!



We went to see the new Fantastic Four movie yesterday and here's the news: It's a pretty good movie. We really enjoyed it. It's surprising since the first movie was SO terrible. Most people won't give this movie a chance based on the first, but I say give it a try. It's certainly not the best comic book movie ever made (the first "X-Men"), but it's not the worst ("Ghost Rider"). I've read the reviews and they are not glowing, not in the least, but I'm sticking to my guns here.



But there were two things that I didn't like. First, they gave you almost the entire movie in the ads and previews. Almost every cool shot or snappy line in the movie was played out before the movie ever hit the screen. They gave too much away. The second thing is that NOT ONCE did the Surfer say "To me, my board!" and that really irks me, because I love that about him. There were two times when it would have fit in perfectly and I sat there holding my breath waiting...waiting... no. Very disappointing.



You've got to understand the the Silver Surfer is my favorite comic book character. I didn't know squat about comics until I started dating the man and we started our weekly trek to Parma to buy comic books. Parma. That was the closest comic store around. We went there every Wednesday; that's when new books come out. Spending all that time around comics and traveling to acquire more, I got a good education in DC versus Marvel, who the writers were, the artists, the best story lines. Comic books are everywhere in this house. Barely a surface exists without one on it. You know the little fact that you are never more than 3 feet from a spider at any moment in your life? In this house, it's spiders and comic books. Okay, you get the idea. Anyway, with all the this reading material around, you can't help but pick them up. And consistently, it's always been the Surfer that I enjoy reading the most. How can you not like a guy with the Power Cosmic and who looks so cool?



I was really worried that this movie would blow it by him in some way: Give him a squeaky voice or a terrible temper, maybe not make him shiny enough. But he is perfect in this movie (except for lack of the catch-phrase.) But I promise, it's not just the Surfer that makes this a watchable movie. It's an all around better piece of work than the first.

In other news, I won $2 on a scratch card yesterday and then I won a BINGO on "National Bingo Night" winning a $5 Quiznos gift card. I'm surprised the man hasn't skirted me off to Detroit yet with this hot streak!

Is the Silver Surfer who the Brewer was making when he bought a guy with spots and spent 3 days scraping them off? I remember the scrapping but not the finished guys name. Just that someone in your house wanted one very badly and he couldn't be found.

Good to hear the movie is decent cause the first one sure wasn't. I've got three kids dying to go see it.

Ghostrider = Worst? You forgot about the HULK!!! How about Punisher, Electra?

Nance said...

I don't get the SS's signature phrase. Why would he say "To ME, my board?" When does he say it for it to mean anything? Does he say it in response to like, "Hey, SS, what is the most important thing in the world?"

For the life of me, I cannot figure it out. Maybe you've got it wrong, J. Maybe SS is Japanese and his board is named Tumi.

J. said...

Weaver--Brewer was trying to make an Iceman with all the spot scraping. The boy was thrilled with it.

Brewer-- I think the whole topic is well covered by the next post!

Nance-- Lay off the alien! He's allowed to have less-than-perfect grammer!

Nance said...

J--I was being serious! Not being well-versed, or even slightly-versed in any comic book characters, I am honestly stumped. When does the SS use this saying and what does it mean? I was trying to figure it out. Or, is it just like the Lone Ranger's "Hi-ho Silver, away!"?

J. said...

In comics, the Surfer is not in a constant state of flying around on the board. Sometimes he drops it off and walks around, eats pasta, flirts with chicks, whatever. But then-- when danger strikes, he shouts out "To me, my board!" and in a flash, on auto-pilot, it glides to his side. Not unlike the trick the Batmobile can pull off, but much easier to find a parking space.

I always liked the Silver Surfer.

Nance said...

OH! Now I get it! He's calling the board! It makes perfect sense now. Like, "Taxi!"

Thanks for explaining it. Of course, now I feel a little stupid that I couldn't just have figured it out on my own...
