You seem to think that if Rothman did any meddling on Origins then it can just easily be made into something great. I disagree. But that doesn't mean I'm absolving Hood of any blame. I'm just saying that we should recognise that executive meddling can have an adverse effect on a movie (and yes, even those aspects you mention can potentially suffer in turn).

That doesn't mean I think Origins would automatically be amazing if Rothman stepped back and just let Hood do his thing (if indeed Rothman actually meddled).

Lady Luck is smiling at me. She knows something I don't.

My worst fear: When I die all I see is a sign saying 'level 2'. Which means I have to live all of this all over again. Only on a higher difficulty setting.
