Hollywood Making Children's Stories Into Action Films
With "Jack the Giant Slayer", "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" and Adam Sandler's interpretation of "Jack and Jill", the new Hollywood trend seems to be making classic children's books into films. The scary thing about this is it's only a matter of time before movie makers run 100% empty on ideas. They're going to remake every original film ever made, make a movie from every comic book ever made, every video game, and every fairy tale, but soon enough they'll hit a wall. Till then it'll be interesting to see which children's story they choose to adapt next. I can't wait to see "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" or a dark edgy take on "Humpty Dumpty". This might not be a bad thing though because this generation of kids could afford to learn lessons from stories like "The Tortoise and the Hare" and "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". Since we know they won't be reading them unless they're packed in a Happy Meal, the only way for them to learn this shit is to put it in IMAX 3D.
