Blood Lines (TV series)

Okay. I haven't had the chance to post lately, but by God am I pissed off about this one! Tanya Huff is a bloody brilliant author. She has that wonderful dry humour, and her stories are always creative and interesting.

But NOW, her Blood series has been turned into a mini series... by LIFETIME, of all the fucking channels! Lifetime?! I mean, who was the fucking genius that pulled off that craptastic idea? Some things should be left in books... and not ass-raped by the old bats running the Lifetime channel! Curse their little middle-aged hearts to hell!

Happily N'Ever After

Oh my god no words can express

So after the waves of nausea subsided from Stardust: The Movie, I went and looked to make sure no other Gaiman books were being raped without my knowledge. I had heard they were doing Coraline a while ago but hadn’t heard anything lately. So I checked. I only have two words and I think they will sum up my horror: DAKOTA FANNING.

Amazingly enough that is the only down side and even that isn’t as bad as it could be since it is in fact animated by none other than the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas (it wasn’t Tim Burton after all) and Monkeybone. So dear old way-over-used Dakota will only be lending her squeaky windpipes to the project. But still, Coralline should really have a bit more going for her than a dumb blond. Oh what is the world coming too?

I think the world may need me even more than I thought. My goal is starting to expand from not just making good movies my self but preventing other people from making bad ones. Can’t you just see me taking over the world of cinema?

Oh my god this makes me want to kill myself!

Why? WHY! Stardust is a book that should never never be made into a movie. I’m not as angry about this as I was about Howl’s Moving Castle but I’m sadder because if ever there was to be a movie of Stardust (and there shouldn’t be) it should be animated and by someone who really knows what they’re doing. Kind of ironic since Howl’s Moving Castle was… But seriously fucking Claire Danes? She’s not pretty at all! She is so damn plain and someone plain should not be playing a fallen star.
I’m so sad right now I want to throw up and die. I will have to listen the new CD I got, it’s all about pork. I really think this is going to be such a bad movie I will have to avoid seeing it just to still be able to appreciate the book.

What’s next, American Gods starring The Rock?

Huzzah, I've managed to create my own little corner to bitch about bad movies! I would be ever so pleased to answer any questions and hear any suggestions anyone has about this community.
