Ann and Les simply loathed Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007.) While they assure us there is nothing to recommend this film, they do agree that it probably suffers from being yet another sequel based on yet another comic series. That said, they can’t imagine how the leads Ioan Gruffudd or Jessica Alba managed to make any public appearances after the performances they gave. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends a fantasy-genre film calledDragon Heart (1986.) It’s a sweet little film with Dennis Quaid playing a knight who teams up with a dragon, voiced by Sean Connery, to entertain and con the people in villages throughout the land. Look for the uncredited appearance of John Gielgud. Ann picked a movie that really could have been called “The Fantastic Four.” This film stars Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, James Garner, and Clint Eastwood who is also the director. It’s a romp in space about four has-been astronauts who get called back into action to save the world and it’s called Space Cowboys (1988.)
