You'd think they'd be better off writing 50 page critical analysis' on Felini instead of...hanging out on a comic book film board...where most people watch these films...because they like the comics.
I wonder what would happen on a LOTR/Potter fansite if I walked in and said "Screw the books".
It kinda depends on the director. Not just Lot or Potter , etc. Any book.
Kubrick all his life adapted someone's else work. Rarely he gave a damn about being faithful to the material. I would say , outside of Nabokov Lolita , he always elevated the original work.
It's not like we're talking high literature or anything.
Also , i liked the being snob and writing a 50 page critical analysis on Fellini.
