Thunderbirds (2004)

I have seen a couple trailers for this movie. It looks like it might be a good movie.

The rating on it is PG so maybe it was made more for kids. Has anybody else heard anything about this movie.

It looks like the graphics for this movie are going to be pretty good.

So what are your thoughts on this movie?

It's based off a 70's television show and from what I've heard, the film is terrible. It's too bad because it seems like too many films just rely on special effects to sell them.

I never could never get into the old Thunderbirds. Maybe I just have a thing against the puppets, but I don't think I could get into the movie either.

It makes me sad because Jonathan Frakes is the director for the film. I really like his other work as both an actor and director. His most memorable role was playing Commander William Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Aside from that, he actually directed like half of the Star Trek: TNG episodes and a bunch of other Gene Roddenberry stuff.

Show about puppets adapted into typical kiddie movie where some 13 year old shows all the stupid adults that he really is all growed up? I'll pass.

It bombed spectacularly. 15th place box office now with less than 5 million after its first week.

I have a feeling there won't be a sequel.
