How do you feel when an adapted film's story deviates from the original material?
WARNING: big words that have no apparent reason for their placement, run-on segments, and lots of parenthesis. I'm only just stating the obvious over and over again. I just have nothing better to do.
I can't say I don't mind, but I also can't say that I don't understand.
Certain things don't apply to the general audience--but those elements were in the original, which was obviously popular and well-liked enough to be made into a movie (which was made mostly for the purpose to get more money from the people who liked it in the first place). But, uh, anyway, the combination of evolving to appeal to a "general audience" and throwing in random elements from the original as a "shout-out" to the original fans results in... something very mixed-up and usually nonsensical (at least when compared to the original).
ie. the Silent Hill movie. With multiple popular games and one base (movie) to shove shit into (the shit obviously being things from the games--each of which has its own background and special meaning ... without that meaning, the shit really has no place and is only thrown in so they can call it an "adaptation"), you get something really mixed up and, even if it is watchable, the changes are just stupid.
I've started up so many topics that I'm not making sense anymore.
