cameronmstewart Probably too small to read here, but here it is anyway. (The last panel is an IMDB search for "ghostbusters" and it's not there any more, ha ha ha.) 1mon
  •   happyutensil @c_gnn you are right that my opinion is based on my experiences. And my statement WASNT meant as a jab at you or anyone else with adopted siblings. Three (hopefully short) ramblings. My mother has four siblings. She, her two older brothers and her younger sister, all look like my grandmother. Her youngest brother, however, looks like my grandfather. There has never been a single instance where someone has come in and seen a photo of the five of them together and not asked, " who's that guy?" And pointed to my uncle who looks like my grandfather. Also, I had these friends I hung out with all the time. They had a daughter. And the daughter was always with the mother. The mother had sharp features. Thin brown hair, and brown eyes. The daughter, on the other hand, had soft features, green eyes and fiery red hair. Without fail, if she would pick her up, call her over or say "this is my daughter.", the person she was talking to would have a quizzical look on their face and say "really?!?". And she would always have to respond with, "she looks like her father." And finally, I have know numerous parents, brothers, sisters, and children, who have axed people out of their lives for very real reasons. But turned around and taken people back into their lives, despite doing those exact same very real things, for no other reason then they are blood relatives. What does this have to do with the Fantastic Four and Johnny Storm being an adopted black kid...well, this is a movie. And movies are a visual medium. And despite how far we have come as a society (and we have!), there are still things that are initially jarring. Or at the very least make us go, "really?!?". 1mon
  •   happyutensil And while those things go away with explanation, that exact same explanation and exposition, turn a two hour super hero movie into something that is NOT a two hour super hero movie. And this movie, in order to be a hit, has to cater to the general public. And if you go with the "he's adopted" angle, the general public is going to look at that and say, "they don't like each other, they have nothing in common, they aren't even 'real' brother and sister, why are they hanging out?!?!" Do I think that there are a great many people who wouldn't even bat an eye at this, yes, I believe that. But I don't think a great many are the same as the general public. If this were done in the comics, where I have a hundred issues to delve into the subtleties and nuances of why those two were together that fateful night and the nature and growth of their relationship, I would be all for it. It would lead to some interesting and refreshing stories. And it would be nice to just have some diversity. But in a two hour super hero tent pole movie that caters to the general public...maybe simple is the better way to go. 1mon
  •   c_gnn I didn't think it was a jab. I thought it was a pretty common opinion and a pretty common reaction to seeing two people who are family and don't look alike - which is why seeing a movie portray those sorts of families as no big deal is important. Why does each family need to explain itself? I hope there IS no explanation in the movie. And why does someone loving and valuing someone the way that Sue and Johnny do, as family, become difficult to believe because their genes don't match? It is NOT the same as a neighbour kid you grew up with - so he story still holds. 1mon
  •   c_gnn Besides which, the actor cast as Johnny is fantastic. He is the main reason I will be there watching. 1mon
  •   happyutensil @c_gnn he really is fantastic, and literally epitomizes the persona of Johnny. He pretty much played a variation of him in Chronicle. 1mon
