To reiterate a bit from Sighter. Again, the issue here is that you're all long time fans of the movie. To you, of course, it's not going to be new or original. To you, of course, it's stuff you've seen a million times before all over the internet.Spoony's "review" (it's not a review, it's a gripe session) is not new or original. It is the SAME tired and over beaten stuff we could hear from any number of sources on the internet about the Wing Commander movie. It's not even halfway entertaining.
The difference here is that the VAST majority of those that frequent Spoony's site, like myself, have never before heard of Wing Commander. We've never seen the misspellings and the hairless cats, so what's been said a million times to you guys is new to us. There are going to be entirely different approaches when working with something no one has seen and something everyone has seen. There's been comparisons in this thread of riffing on this to riffing on Star Wars: Phantom Menace. But, quite frankly, it falls apart because the viewership on each is nowhere near the same. The expectations on what the viewer already knows going into each is entirely different.
Twitter. It's a terrible, terrible thing.PS: How are all these people finding this random thread on the internet? I find it fascinating and kind of weird at the same time that people are registering on a forum just to respond to this thread.
