That Really Grinds My Gears...Changing up Movies
So after watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine I finally realized movie producers/writers really need to stop messing with the Marvel Universe. What I mean is changing up the character story lines. They did it with Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and the most obvious was X-Men.
Exhibit A...Rouge. In the comic books she was clearly not a "punk" girl who had a small crush on Wolverine. Who are the people behind the scenes thinking "this won't work"? Granted I understand they want to make the movie special by adding their own twist to it; but you can only go so far. Want to know the crazy part? So far DC Universe movies have gotten to be much butter...even though every now and then both DC and tends to start the series up again (Superman, Batman, etc).
Worst example by far goes to Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
