Fuck This Fucking Planet

So, I took a chance and checked out the trailer for the upcoming 'Cat In The Hat' movie. C'mon, I grew up with Dr. Seuss, I had to see. Besides, Mike Myers is usually funny, so why not?

I'd love to let out a large, barbaric yawp of anger, betrayal, and sheer hatred right now. Unfortunately, my typing it and your reading it wouldn't quite convey the depths of burning black hatred, seething with the countless bones of millenia, that I would want to express.

Short version? They attempted to make it an hour and a half long, and did so by adding a lot of in-jokes, mannerisms that are QUITE un-Seuss-like, and pointless cliches of every other fucking Hollywood movie aimed at children. And, true to form, did we let the "star" just sorta run wild with things? Of fucking course.

Is it so hard to create new things? Is Hollywood incapable of making something for kids that is actually worth a shit? Is there anyone left that actually believes that the 'classics' are that way for a reason, and things that stand the test of time stood them because they are they way they are?!?

As long as I'm pissed...have you seen that someone is remaking "Dawn Of The Dead", now? Jesus Christ, people...show a little creativity!!!!!
