Don't let the title confuse you, we're in perfectly fine spirits, but those adjectives are the first salvo in a bevy of 118 critical reviews of Fox's brand-new Fantastic Four film that have lead to a 10% score of Rotten Tomatoes! Jermaine has already scene it, and in an uncharacteristic display of audience candor, he answers all of Stephen's and Jay's spoiler-filled questions before giving the comic-reading, movie-going public a chance to spend their dollars. Then it's the first installment in a new series by Lord Retail, Michael and John, covering the issues of Time Runs Out on the Last Days of the Marvel Universe leading up to Secret Wars!
