The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) - RecommendedOfficial Synopsis: "In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons."
This taut fun thriller is supposed to be a throwback to classic James Bond and it works. The reason it works is the same reason it bombed: director Guy Ritchie gives it the slow pace of 60s movies and it's a wonderful contrast to the quick cuts and frenetic pace of modern films. The action is phenomenal, the intricate plot is well written and Henry Cavill makes a wonderful leading man.

Chronicle (2012) - RecommendedOfficial Synopsis: "Seen through the lens of a troubled teen's video camera, yet filled with eye-popping action and jaw-dropping special effects, Chronicle is as real as it gets. When three ordinary high school friends make an extraordinary discovery, they acquire amazing abilities beyond their understanding. But as their powers develop, so do their darker sides. Fun, harmless pranks soon lead to much riskier activities as the boys' "gifts" - and their lives - spin dangerously out of control!"
Josh Trank creates an incredible low budget movie but it's not about superheroes. This movie is about people and as the movie spends more time on the characters they use their powers to explore their ambitions on things like pranks, travel and revenge. It's a thoughtful and powerful film and shares many themes of Fantastic Four with teenagers getting powers and one turning evil. But if this is what Trank was trying to make I can see why the studio balked. It's way too slow paced for a summer blockbuster.
Fantastic Four (2014) - Not Recommended
Official Synopsis: "The FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy."In case you couldn't tell from my rant about the movie's poorcharacterization this movie is a waste of time in every way. The acting and special effects are too good to enjoy it as a bad movie, but the plot and characters are too ill-defined to enjoy as a good movie. Some say the movie would have been better if the studio hadn't interfered, but from everything we've heard about Trank - from his trashing his rental house, telling the actors not to breathe, locking himself in a big tent and tweeting an attack on the movie before it opened - he's just not professional enough to handle a Hollywood film. He'll go back to independent film and the studio will try to save what's left of the franchise. Don't waste money in the theater and only rent it if you get a free rental from Red Box or On Demand.
