    Title says it all really.

    Just finished watching this and it was complete total dross. Seldom in the history of 'made for TV' or 'straight to video' has such utter pap been seen.

    The only good thing I can think of to say about it, by way of redeeming features, was that it finished...

    I think the law suit could be on you as I think it was unreleased in any version and only pirate ones available.
    If wrong I stand to be corrected.

    PS I got this pic of the web

    This has been floating around for years. A real turkey, but given its origins hardly surprising.

    The producers who held the film rights were contractually obliged to make a movie within a certain time period or the rights would revert to Marvel. While not yet in the position to make the FF movie they envisioned they made this clunker for about a fiver and shelved it, never intending a release. Most famous person in it I think is Robert Culp's son as Dr Doom.

    Anyway, by doing this they held on to the movie rights and someday we will (hopefully) see a proper FF movie.

    Don't knock yourself out trying to see this. It's even worse than the "Justice League" made for TV movie.

    While we're on the subject of bizarre comic book stuff - anyone heard of a DVD release or even a UK screening of "Back to the Batcave"?

    Could anything be so bad?:rolleyes:

    The really screwed things up with that one a right bunch of Muppets and they got all the characters wrong.

    pauley I left a question on the DVD thread on what TV programs you would like to see on DVD. One was ‘Did you ever see The Greatest American Hero.'

    Sorry Garrett, meant to get back to you on that.

    Wasn't that the one with William Katt and Robert Culp? Was aware of it (think it was on Saturday mornings in our region) but never managed to catch an episode.

    Thats the one.

    You missed a treat it was a super hero with baggage and like an everyday Joe (more every day than Peter Parker). It was from the same stable as The Rockford Files.
    It was on in most regions on Saturday morning but at not all at the same time, some times years behind other regions so never got big nation wide viewing figures also meant that most people have not seen it.
    They sometimes show the pilot film so it worth looking out for.

    Sean Astin (Sam from lord of the Rings) is hoping to direct the 2005 movie.

    If he does, I hope it's better than the short film he made whilst making LOTR.
