8. FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER (2007)

There's nothing worse than wasted potential. Here, you have one of the greatest comic stories ever in the The Coming of Galactus and the special effects budget to pull it off, but what does Fox do instead? They rehire Tim Story to direct a truncated 90-minute version of the story, and, in the process, doom any potential the Fantastic Four ever had for a decent flick.

Story's first FF movie was bad enough, but Rise Of The Silver Surfer upped the shitty ante by wasting a perfectly rendered digital Silver Surfer and sticking him in a shallow children’s movie. In addition, Story decided to depict Galactus as a giant purple dust cloud rather than the world-eating force of nature seen in the comic books. Oh, and Doc Doom is still played by Julian McMahon. The less said about that, the better.
