Okay, I've been seeing this a lot on the site lately, and it finally got to the point where I had to say something, even if it is just to get it out of my head.
To everyone who does not want this movie remade or that TV series made into a movie, I have some news for you: the studios DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK WHAT YOU THINK!! They are going to do what they always do, and that is make money, and they do that by recycling old shit and putting it on the big screen.
We don't know how these movies will turn out, or even if they will actually be released. NOBODY DOES!!! We can speculate all we want, but you know and I know that people are going to go see these movies, so saying "I'm not gonna see this movie" or "That movie is gonna suck," which I have been guilty of doing, is not gonna stop people from seeing it, in theaters or on DVD or TV, and the studios will keep taking our money.
You don't want Hollywood to make a Smurfs or Marmaduke or Akira movie? THEN MAKE YOUR OWN FUCKING MOVIE!! Don't bitch about a movie, which has only been "announced" at this point, when you won't take any true initiative to make something better or change the studios' minds, cause it's getting older than Leon (sorry, Leon).
Boy, do I feel better after that.
