You know...I like some Lynch...Wild At Heart is in my top ten favorite films...but his Dune adaptation was appalling. Of course, since I can

read that book in about two to three days and knew it too well...his license with the story just ticked me off. If he had done as well adapting as the Narnia books were, everything woulda been hunky dory.

Next Installment In Delta House's '"This Movie Is So Bad Only An Omega Could Make, Finance, Or Want To See It" --Abe Lincoln, Vampire Hunter   DTXbro on Jun 17, 13:41

oh come on, it could be the greatest comedy of the year. I laugh just thinking about it. {nm}   jwammo on Jun 17, 13:52

I shorted it at $121.11, whether it's a good movie or not, a $45m opening was just never happening. {nm}   austpow on Jun 17, 14:26

This seems so harsh, considering that it's source material is a NY Times bestseller thats gotten 'decent', if not perfect, reviews {nm}   whitewalls on Jun 17, 14:32

Hmm, a movie that flopped based on a popular book? Can we say, "Dune"? (Though I personally liked it.) {nm}   elchan on Jun 17, 15:40

I didn't say it wasn't going to flop (it is). I just think that assuming there isn't a market for it at all, or that it was cooked up...   whitewalls on Jun 17, 16:27

I think Delta House is trying to be funny, and that usually involves taking on extreme opinions. ;-) I found the post quite amusing. {nm}   elchan on Jun 17, 18:14

There was some effort to leaven the despair with humor, but the criticisms of the makers, movies, and audience are sincere.{nm}   DTXbro on Jun 17, 19:15

Of course, I didn't mean that I found the analysis funny, just the way it was told. ;-) {nm}   elchan on Jun 18, 08:32

Speaking from the perspective to only read the series of books after the movie, I must say that I found the movie quite good.   elchan on Jun 18, 07:51

What were the posts about Blair Witch Project like? I agree that Abe:VH isn't any logical premise, but there's always that fringe chance... {nm}   arf on Jun 17, 22:00
