That would imply that people give a crap about what I think. If they're smart, then they don't.

As an aside, now I know what a Trek XI hater feels like. To hate the idea of something so vehemently and know that deep down I'll probably plunk down money to see it anyway

Re: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Remake... Without Joss

You're painting with too broad a brush there, Thrall. There are reasonable fans of Whedon's shows who do criticize some of his creative decisions. I count myself as one of them. I'm a big fan of Whedon's shows, but he's by no means perfect.

As for the idea of making this movie: I didn't know that Kuzui had ownership of the brand to the extent that such a thing could happen, so this is a surpising announcement. It's a really bad idea and I hope it doesn't come to fruition. If they want to do a next generation slayer movie (which introduced a new post-Buffy slayer in the future) that would be one thing, but a reboot with a new actress playing Buffy would likely be unsuccessful.

Re: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Remake... Without Joss

I imagine the producers that come up with these lazy, bad ideas are just like the guys in those Orange cinema ads about "phones ruining the movie"

Isn't that the first one they did? They're funny the first time you see them, then you get sick of them by the 3rd viewing.

I think it's a bit late to bring back the cast to make a Buffy movie. JJ Abams rebooting Star Trek has been a huge success. As long as they great writers and actors they could do a great job.

Hopefully they don't do what T4 did which was get McG and the writers of Catwoman. Talk about failure from the get go!

I think that was the first one yes, at least that I can recall

I normally hate having to sit through ads in cinemas but I always laugh at these, no matter how many times I see them (although some are better than others.) One the latest ones with Dennis Hopper on the bus I must have seen about 5 times, but it still makes me laugh

And rebooting Buffy might be a success if they wait longer. It may be too late to do a movie with the original cast, but I think it's too soon for a reboot. But I don't think a reboot is the way to go. The concept allows for introducing new characters within the established universe. That would be a much better route to take in my opinion.

I think the problem is the amount of times I go to cinema. Usually at least once a week, so I see them about 20 times before they have a new one.

I quite like the latest one with Emilio Estevez "Saving Private Ryan's Number?" "I was holding a photograph in that scene."

The thing is, Star Wars fans admit George Lucas's faults. Whedon fans usually refuse to admit he has any. Star Wars fans actually have moderate and casual fans. Whedon fans - especially Internet Whedon fans - tend to be pretty hardcore.
There are hardcore and moderate fans on either side. If you haven't run into hardcore combative SW fans yet, I have to ask which Internet you've been hanging out on! :LOL:

A big part of me doesn't want there to be any movie that continues from the series. I really hated the Buffy series finale. It became too bloated with all the supporting characters that I didn't care about.

If they do a movie about Buffy I think it would be best for them to return to the formula of having one teenage girl with a small group of friends in highschool fighting evil. The series started to go downhill a bit for me after they left highschool.

You could return to that formula with a new slayer and a new group of friends, though.

Why redo a high school vamp fighting group? Why not choose another setting?
