- So, two years ago, you said, "If these films turn out to suck, I'm going to be very pissed off."
- Oddly enough, I don't seem to be very pissed off.
Though now, I'm starting to wonder how this is going to affect the future of this whole genre, i.e., the movie genre --- clearly the book genre is going to go on as before, perhaps with a bit of a boost from people who used to dismiss it but decide from seeing the PJ movies that maybe Tolkien and various other folks are worth a try after all.
- the movie genre will completely die out because nobody will dare anything remotely similar for fear of suffering the comparison with PJ
- this is going to do to big-budget fantasy what Star Wars did to big-budget space opera.
In other words, brace yourselves for a whole legion of imitations of varying degrees of quality.
Or what, in your ideal world, should be coming next?
E.g., in my ideal world, someone competent would be attempting big-screen versions of either Guy Gavriel Kay's Fionavar Tapestry or Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series, but I'm guessing those particular ones will be a while since the authors in question are still among the living.
