Dear Film Makers

Last night I went to see The Woman in Black is was good, I spent half the time jumping and the other half whispering “that’s not in the book”, “the story has been changed”.

I get very annoyed when you change to story; I don’t mean the little bits to make it screen friendly I mean totally change the ending type changes. It really pisses me off and makes me not want to see book adaptations. Please stop messing with the original story so much, the reason it’s a good book is the story line when you change it for me the story loses something. That something that makes it special.

While I have your attention please stop remaking old movies, the reason that they are popular classics is that people like them the way they are.  When Footloose was recently remade I as so angry I almost had a tantrum like a toddler. It is a fantastic film with a great cast that works together mixed with an amazing 80’s soundtrack why mess with that? Why?

Please put your energy into finding original ideas and stop wasting time remaking films that don’t need remaking.

Thank You

A very grumpy Carol.
