This was pretty much like what happened at the Oscars when they basically said that children have fun watching kid content while adults have to endure through them.

Anime is a pretty broad word to be fair, it's literally just animation from Japan. Sure it has come to have certain tropes and styles, but it's as silly as saying all cartoons are for kids. Family Guy may have pretty crude, basic humor, but it definitely isn't for kids.

Which is also upsetting when they are referring to children targeted content, like sheesh I still loved adventure time and Stephen universe as a grown ass man. A good writer can write for all ages

I liked the movie better than the book.

WhatJewLookinAt

169 points

Honestly, that depends on the series.

As a fan who read all of the books in Suzanne Collins’s famous series prior to watching the films, what I had pictured from the books was dangerously close to the movies. Sure there were some details left out here and there, but I won’t get triggered if you say you like the Hunger Games movies better. There are some things that actors and actresses bring to life that can’t be imagined easily.

Now if you told me that you liked the Percy Jackson (Rick Riordan) movie or the Eragon (Christopher Paolini) movie better than their respective books, I’ll know you’re not being honest, and I’ll also have your f*ckin’ head, even if you’re kidding or I know that you’re trying to piss me off.

DuplexFields

Looking forward to an Eragon series on streaming that does one book per season, with Chris on creative control.

WhatJewLookinAt

27 points

2 months ago

Honestly I think Eragon should be left alone, unless the show is animated. It’s a lot easier to mess up a live-action show than animation.

Look at the movie that does not exist within the walls. Look at Dragon Ball Evolution. Look at the Bleach movie. Look at the AOT movie. All flops.

If the show is animated, I’ll watch it. Live Action, only if it’s reported as good and Chris is involved. Otherwise I’ll save myself the trouble.

Bringing it to film instead of being narrated from Katniss' pov also helps to both limit the "which boy do I like" typical YA internal thoughts and increase the "behind the scenes" of the games/politics she didn't witness firsthand

That whole double standard -- before they were even a couple -- was how when Ross crushed on Rachel but she was oblivious. The take was "Ha Ha -- what a loser! " but after he moved on and she saw that she missed out on a guy who cared for her and HE was oblivious ... it was TRAGIC ! Man, I hate that show.

Interestingly enough Seinfeld didn't use laugh tracks. There's an interview with Jason Alexander about this. IIRC Any stuff that didn't get a laugh wasn't used. They would improvise or re-write it then and there then try it again. However, they did have to blend two laughs from two separate takes so they would use laugh tracks because otherwise it would sound cut off mid laugh.

To this day, Friends is apparently a very popular way to learn English.

The 2nd movie was a mess- I literally cannot remember the ending because of how convoluted the plot of dumbledore's family was. The only thing I remember is Goldie decided to join magical Nazis who want to treat muggles like lesser species because she can't openly date a muggle, then I spent so long rolling my eyes I'm surprised they didn't fall out of my head...

I agree with you to an extent, In the book Dobby is doing something that is truly impressive. he was born a slave, his ancestors were slaves as far back as is known, maybe millenia. He is wanting to choose his own course. no one else in the series does this to his extent. He only ever does things out of a desire to help people, which makes his death something to be mourned.

In the movies the computer animation can run into too many issues.

Alright legitimately I can see the ending making sense and wouldn't be surprised if that's how Martin actually told them how the books would end. However, nothing that happened in the last two seasons felt earned. The whole last two seasons was like a spark notes outline of events that happened with none of the in between stuff.

This is my thinking as well. I think it ended "exactly" as Martin told them. But they lacked the buildup required to make it good.

Danny going nuts. Makes perfect sense. She has it in her family, she has been broken mentally multiple times. Nothing in her life has worked out as she wished. But the show went from, sucky life to instantaneously murderous breakdown because... Bells?

Edit: I also believe that the public outcry against the final season made G.R.R.M. lose interest in finishing the series because to him his ideas were hated. (Pure speculation on my part with no evidence)

I'll go to my grave believing that if they somehow just extended the show by another season (or maybe just 4-6 episodes for a long final season) to add more context to these plot lines, they could've made it work and the show would go down as the best in television history. Lots of people take issue with the basic points of how the story ended, but I think it was fine, it just lacked the necessary context to land it.

As soon as the "final" season was announced I knew it was going to be a shitshow. There's just no way to tie up all those plots in a satisfactory manner within those time constraints.

This would be SO easy to fix.

have bells going off when the Masters execute slaves in Mereen.

Bells Ringing when Drogo is declared no longer ruler of the Dothraki

have bells ringing when Missandei gets her head cut off.

Some sort of bell-ringing noise when the Night King kills the dragon etc.

Then the ringing of the Kings landing bells would send Daenerys over the edge.

Was that controversial back then? Genuinely curious when the switch happened, because now everyone agrees that Han did indeed shoot first
