I like adaptations.
Purists who worship at the feet of their pop culture idols are already damning me to hell for blaspheming. Yes, I’ve just suggested that a reinterpretation of fandom’s holy, untouchable, absolutely godlike favourite franchise translated from one medium to another may not be a terrible thing after all.
I’m not making a sweeping statement of any sort here to say that I am completely on the side of Hollywood’s favourite past-time, the ripoff – er, I mean, the humble adaptation. I just want to be rational about why I think they are not exactly a travesty.
