Yeah, and sometimes even bad writers can manage to write a good stories.
Look at Cameron's Smurfs in Space. Throwing enough money at a project can turn even a script on the level of a soap opera episode into a financial success.
I think Lindelof has his ups and downs like any writer. Cowboys & Aliens was awful, but I really enjoyed Lost for the most part, and Star Trek was great for what it set out to be.
A hired gun.
I'm checking this movie out even if he does that.
Well, Lindelof didn't write Trek. I think he might have done some work on the story, but he didn't get a writing or story credit.
I didn't know he wrote Cowboys & Aliens.
I'll let the fanboys flock to the theatres in the first few weeks and IF the buzz on the internet ultimately turnsout to be "That was it?" then I'll just wait until it comes out on cable TV.
Or... you could actually go see it and form an opinion of your own on wether or not it was worth it..... maybe?
Am I the only one who noticed that the guy standing next to the chair must be like 10 ft tall?
He was one of 9(!) credited writers, so I don't know if we should judge his screenwriting abilities on that...
That's a bunch of elitist BS. Have you even considered the possibility that you're the one in the wrong here and not the poor unenlightened masses who have been conditioned" to like "pig slop"
No. Pig slop is pig slop. Not just because I say it is.
You are mistaking subjective opinions for fact. I mean I assume your just a troll because almost every post you make is nothing but hate and bile and you always conveniently ignore any post that shows how flawed you position is. However if you are not a troll then why do you bother posting? If I don't like something I simply ignore it. I certainly don't go out of my way to dis it. Are you really that hateful and bitter that you have nothing better to do?
Obviously alot of people don't ignore it. They go to see it. And that just makes things worse. Doesn't it?
And once again you flat out ignore what people are actually posting.
Why are you guys humoring him like this?
I do feel like Roddy Piper at times - all out of bubble gum.
I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass.
And I'm all out of ass.
He does the same thing in the Trek Lit boards.
You know what, I've seen alot of the movies you'd probably consider pig slop, hell C&A is one of the next movies on my Netflix, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Sometimes it's fun to be able to watch a movie where you can just sit back, turn off you're brain and have fun.
And I'm sorry, but there is no way that you're going to be able to convince me Prometheus will be that kind of mindless stuff. It's Ridley frickin' Scott for God's sake, the guy who gave us Blade Runner, and Alien, and no matter what you think of them I don't think you'd describe them as mindless. And as someone pointed out to me recently, the director of a movie tends to play a much bigger role in the quality of a movie than the writer.
I was under the impression he did uncredited work on the script too. And yeah, he was one of around seven writers on C&A.
