The only thing's in this picture I'm happy to see the back of are Riley and Dawn!
As soon as I heard about this idea I went into automatic fan-rage mode, and part of me is still itching to get into another rant, so please excuse any spelling atau grammatical errors, they are the result of 40% of my attention going towards holding back lebih ranting.
So, in the spirit of the logical, bias free attitude I will almost certainly have completely abandoned sejak the seterusnya paragraph, I'll start sejak saying that legally they have every right to do this, and that if ever there was a good time to make money of a Buffy movie it's now. The thing is, and I say this not as a fan, but as someone who has enough basic common sense to at least match a cactus, even if they do care about nothing but making money surely they can see this isn't the way to go? In one hari they have managed to annoy every single Buffy peminat I know into saying they will boycott.
Even if it wasn't for the fact that this movie seems to have no respect for the creator, character atau peminat-peminat I doubt many peminat-peminat would be interested anyway. This is Buffy without everything that made it great. Joss and the amazing writers he chose, the cast who understood the roles and brought them to life with great skill, and most importantly the supporting characters, the entire universe the peminat-peminat fell in Cinta with. They've put themselves in the strange position of rebooting something that depends heavily on it's loyal core fanbase for success and alienating almost the entire loyal core fanbase while doing it. Since I'm sure they were aware how peminat-peminat would react I guess this movie is aimed at people who've never seen Buffy but would watch any vampire movie right now because it's in vogue. There are people out there who fit that description, and I hope enough of them become aware of the peminat-peminat reaction either sejak article, blog atau the incessant whining of a friend who loves Buffy and it becomes clear that there's no point in doing this movie because nobody wants it. For those who say we can't be sure till the movie is made that it will suck go watch the original Buffy movie, now imagine it without the tiny bits of Joss that managed to squeeze through, come back look me in the eye (well..screen) and tell me you're not certain this movie will stink. In fact, to quote a friend of mine this movie is going to suck lebih than a vacuum cleaner full of leeches.
One thing I wish is that people would stop saying to me 'well we can't hate on the Kuzuis, even if the original movie sucked we wouldn't have the tunjuk without it' because I don't see how their crappy movie enabling an amazing tunjuk is relevant to not wanting them to make another crappy movie. To me that's like if some moron kicked anda in the nuts really hard, so anda went to the hospital and while anda were there fell in Cinta with and married a hot nurse, then years later the same guy calls anda and says "hey buddy, I'm on my way over to kick anda in the nuts again" are anda happy? grateful? peeved, but decide to let it slide because the original nut-kicking let anda meet your hot wife? No, you're freaked out and angry because some jackass wants to kick anda in the nuts! The fact that the first movie led to the tv tunjuk doesn't mean I'm not mad at the thought of them doing another movie that will inevitably be even worse than the original without any input from Joss, that they are unashamedly doing for money without any regard for the character atau the peminat-peminat (wow, I slipped back into rant mode impressively quickly, didn't I?)
So, to sum up: I found it literally impossible to talk about this without getting pissed and ranty because it's such a bad idea. Hopefully the peminat outcry will make them realise that really nobody, including them, will benefit from this. The character's reputation will be damaged, the movie will suck, the peminat-peminat will be mad and the franchise (which they still make money off) could be harmed. I know after seeing the original movie I was really reluctant to see the show, so after another awful movie I'm sure some potential peminat-peminat will judge the tunjuk on the movie and be put off.
What I hope will happen is that this thing never gets made. If it does I should hope it does ok, so at least it's not a stain on Buffy's reputation, but anda know what? I'm still too pahit about it to wish it well, so if it turns out this is going to happen what I'd really Cinta is for Joss to make a Fray atau Buffy (or really any slayer centric) movie, release it on the same hari and enjoy a hearty giggle when absolutely nobody goes to the 'unofficial' Buffy. I know that's not what will happen, but it would be my best case scenario. saat best is that they sejak some miracle make a movie that's not painfully bad atau that it goes straight to DVD and is completely ignored.
