-The director of Chronicle has given Reed an origin story that looks like Chronicle.
-Thing is naked and has no, uh, thing.
-Doom looks terrible and sounds just as douchey as Julian McMahon.
-Greenscreen lava planet looks like every planet on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Maybe setting the bar low and surprising us by not being total crap is the plan. But you notice there was almost zero buzz about this coming out of the Fox panel. Naturally, it’s the one they’ve released. For now.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
