5.0 out of 5 stars THIS version DESERVES to be watched because of the JACK "KING" KIRBY documentary bonus feature!!!!, March 20, 2007
This review is from: Fantastic Four (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
I'll be honest...this movie doesn't need an "extended cut" version...sure it's a fine movie, but most of you already have an acceptable version of it, and an extra 20 minutes of footage is fine, but to most of us, not quite enough to justify buying an entire other DVD version of it...
So WHY am I reviewing this version of the DVD as a 5-star "MUST BUY" version? SOLELY because the "extras" DVD has a feature reflecting and honoring JACK "KING" KIRBY, the man/legend who co-created the entire Marvel universe (among other superheroes), with Stan Lee, but got almost NONE of the credit (or money) that Stan did...
KIRBY was a creative FORCE for both Marvel and DC comics over his lifetime career, and not only was he the world's greatest comic book creator and artist, but an amazingly warm, wonderful person, family man, and treated his fans as if they were close friends...never in the world was a man more deserving of a documentary than Kirby was, and while it should've been included in the original release, this feature alone is WELL worth watching and well worth as well the cost of buying this DVD...you will NOT be disappointed by watching the KIRBY documentary...he WELL deserves this honor, and it's VERY interesting for comic fans and non comic fans alike...

I agree, he didn't get as much credit as he deserves (although there ARE two sides to every story - no Stan, no Jack). Although I was not a big fan of his art as a kid, it was the little things - dynamic storytelling, brilliant landscapes, cinematic composition - that made comics more of the art form it is today. Everyone worth their salt in the art field of comics ripped off Kirby in one way or another.

Caveat Emptor : Dialogue is awful, "lame".

Example:

Reporter :
Is it true what they say about him?
That he can expand any part of his anatomy?
Johnny Storm:
Well, I've always found him to be a little limp.

I guess that is a reference to Stretch,
and how "handsome" (some pair of hands) he is.

"Aw c'mon, get me a coke"... "Sorry Johnny, busy
doing math problems"... "Reed, you never got it,
did you?"... Limp, like a rubber band.

Odd, I do not remember him being called Mr.Fantastic,
in the comic books. I remember them calling
him Stretch. I guess only the public called him,
Mr. Fantastic, but to the other 3, he was "Stretch".
