Every time I hear about a story I like being made into a movie, I think “I hope it doesn’t suck”. With most movies, I don’t care. If it sucks, it one more movie I won’t rent again. But when a favorite story is ruined, it’s sad forever. Currently I fear for Peter Pan. What a great story. If they screw up the movie, I shall be sad indeed.
The movie that inspired this post is the upcoming I, Robot. Now, I was a bit disappointed by the book, but then, I was expecting something else when I read it. It’s still a great story. If the movie sucks, it will be a loss for our culture.
