Writer's Block: Wait, that's not how it happened @ 05:55 pm


How do you feel when an adapted film's story deviates from the original material?
<lame>I dunno, because pathvain_aelien is usually the only one to notice.</lame>

I love that icon - I finally watched "Hush" the other night, and you're right - it's a wonderfully creepy episode. :)

In terms of the writer's block question - for me it depends partly on whether the film was good in and of itself and partly on how much I love the source material beforehand...

Yeah, in a striking coincidence, after I answered this question P_A happened to mention how people apparently hate the movie The Last Airbender or Airbender: The Last Airbender (or whatever they had to call the movie because of Avatar already being an unrelated movie) because it's a lot different from the TV show, but that she hadn't seen the show so she wouldn't know what's different about the movie.

This also reminds me of how even though people tend to hate the Super Mario Bros. movie because it deviates from the games a lot, I think I'd still like to see it.

No, I was calling myself lame for not being able to notice when a movie deviates from its source. And also because, for two Writer's Blocks in a row, a random LJ user has questioned my reasoning, so I'm insulting myself before they can insult me. :P

Nobody has so far this time, though.
