Stop making a mess of my childhood!!!!
Transformers 2 was basically made for a 5th grader. Based on my (special screening), I felt insulted for being a geek, smart, human and alive. The cartoon writers did a better job than whoever shat all over this. And now G.I. Joe is next...I don't think I can't take this anymore.
What I would like is a smart, critical take of these stories. Transformers was a great cartoon and the original cartoon movie is historic. G.I. Joe was also a great cartoon, with great characters and great stories. All the writers have to do is play on those stories and build them up. Actually, "Battlestar" them, make it an adult, serious story that challenge and thrills us.
It can be done, just do it already! I'm really scared to see G.I. Joe, I think it will be just as bad. However, I'm afraid as long as money can be made, most of my childhood will be massacred.
So what's next? He-Man, Pole Position, The Littles, JEM, She-ra? I will write the script for JEM, I don't want the Starlight Girls to go through the same shatfest that the Josie and the Pussycats movie did.
In all, I think most us want a good movie. But it doesn't have to be some dumbed down, 2 hours flicks with cheap starlets, CGI orgies and poo putt scripts. The human brain deserves better.
I'm done ranting for now, I was just hurt to see how huge Transformers 2 opened this weekend. It just proves that some folks will accept anything as entertainment
