So yeah....learn how to state an opinion if you wish to do so. Trying to martyr yourself at this point is kind of pointless as your own poor wording dug you into this hole....as it seems to do every time you state an 'opinion.'
Yeah,and alien ressurection was awesome too, infact the alien was supposed to have sex with ripley and she remembers newt and other memories and they all land in france at the end,

Even the chest buster that busted throughthe guys head,was supposed to bust back in and bust out of the other guys head. But executives have to go ruin everything

Not at all, and frankly I found the topic of forced anal insertion of toys through an incestuous relationship rather funny, though looking back on it when phrased that way it seems very disturbing and I'm certain that someone who had experienced such a trauma would find it equally offensive.

I'm just saying that people need to calm down. Dude said Whedon is a hack. Big deal. People say things all the time, you won't always agree. Learn not to give a shit about what other people think. It makes the internet a lot easier to tolerate.

Too much thread derailment. I thought something new came up.

How could you not love roseanne and titan A.E. they were seminally spunktastic

I can't believe they cut firefly, its like he's cursed not to get a good break.


The original alien 3 script was suppposed to be on a wooden monks cathedral planet sattelite, whedon was given the write to do, but woods concept won out, before fox getting cold feetit was veering too far away from bthe originals, that andperhaps it would have killed the franchise. Unless prometheus was destined to be made anyway regardless.

Hah, I saw Titan A.E. when it came out. I like a lot of Bluth's animated stuff....moreso the earlier stuff (NIMH, All Dogs, and American Tail...80s stuff) than the later.

Wheddon's stuff just appeals to a smaller audience, mostly sci-fi nerds. And if you want to survive on a large network or in Hollywood, you need to expand past that demographic. I feel that Wheddon often fails to do this successfully, for whatever reason.

Well Buffy went for what 9 seasons and Angel 5. I believe for their time, they were good for network TV. Just his newer stuff like Dollhouse, just no I didn't like it. Same cast, same archtypes.

Just read his Astonishing run.

The Angel series was enjoyable. Abit sad that they ended it on that kind of cliffhanger.

That's fine. Though it's usually second nature to blindly determine whether something is bad or good in comparison to something else.

Just with a different change of attitude, they aren't as bad as you make em out to be.

Oddly, The WB was a channel I never had as a kid.

They continued both Buffy in Angel in comic book forms to this day. The Buffy Season 9 was with Whedon and was, ok, but not amazing. His Angel stuff was good and the series hasn't been able to come back from the depths since he walked away. If your a fan of Angel buy the initial run with Whedon that starts after the end of the TV series.

I heard buffy vamp slayer got very small viewing figures for many seasons.

Regardless I had a friend in college who memorised evers episode script for all 9 seasons word for word. His dedication to the series was (OMG I can't believe I'm using this word) phenomenal.

All I can say so far is good. I never liked the Fantastic 4 movies, and I hope that if this movie ever does happen, it might be better than what we got.

I don't see how you can make the fantastic four "serious". Damnit I blame Nolan. If this guy is trying to go for legitimacy, then he should add the Yancy Street gang. That ought to show em.

You can make that comic into a very good serious movie. Their problem is they tried to go for comedy. Thats one reason they failed.
