The origin of the Fantastic Four - video review.

Fantastic Four #1 - Origin
Yesterday may have been Pancake Day but today is an even more epoch-making one, as I upload my second video to Sheffield's 38th greatest living blog.

I must admit it was a troubled shoot, stricken by a temperamental star, noisy wildlife and lighting difficulties. But, like a trooper, I battled on and finished it.

So, here it is, a motion picture that's bound to go down in cinema history and be spoken of in the same breath as the likes of Tank Girl and Tommy Wiseau's The Room.

Pancake Day was also my birthday but I didn't actually know it was Pancake day or I'd have bought some from Tesco. Steve, your TOTP blog was always hilarious and you're keeping up the same standard here :)

Thanks, Colin. :)

PS. Happy birthday, Colin.

Colin Jones said...

Thanks very much, Steve. I was in Tesco this morning so I bought a pack of pancakes and a little squeezy bottle of golden syrup - better late than never :)

Another hilarious review, Steve!
I wonder what will be coming next?

Steve W. said...

Thanks, John. I've a few ideas for what to do for the next video but, at the moment, no decision on its subject matter has yet been settled on.

Is Pancake Day really a thing in the U.K.?
If so, we need to get that over here in the U.S., ASAP.
I'd even settle for a Waffle Day, at this point.
Excuse me, I've gotta run down to the store...
M.P.

MP, Pancake Day is indeed very much a thing in the UK.

Colin Jones said...

Exactly. And that's why I couldn't believe I'd missed it when I was reading the beginning of this post. My mother always made pancakes with lemon juice from real lemons squeezed on top. I prefer golden syrup which is lovely on chicken sandwiches too (and so is honey).

M.P., I'm just spitballing here off the top of my head, but here goes. Pancake Day is a day to use up the grease/oil, eggs, flour and milk/cream before Ash Wednesday or Lent begins. Pancake Day or Fat Tuesday is more widely known stateside as Mardi Gras and usually not spent eating pancakes. My wife is English, several generations removed, so we try to observe Pancake Day every year.

Colin, I don't know if it has reached your shores yet but one of the newest sensations here is chicken and waffles. Fried chicken and waffles......ON THE SAME PLATE!!!!

Really!!!!

(I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
How I had to keep on trying
Little better ev'ry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I'd still be where I started
Bread and butter for a smile).
