Digging for the scum under the bottom of the barrel for movie ideas, are we?

Hollywood is rotting.

I think we should have learned already that anime adaptations don't seem to work.

Especially for kids' shows.

I'm just wondering how a guy who worked on a reality show for makeovers is somehow considered qualified to do action films. He's also involved with Hawaii Five-O...

Uh.. Okay.

Well at least the wardrobe will look great... or maybe not.

There should be some really good drama! Nah, probably cheesecake.

I got it. The hair will be out of this world. That's a given.

Oh my God, this is terrible.

It's awful.

I want to hide underneath my bed and chant "this is just a dream" over and over again until I snap and my will becomes my reality.

That was me being serious. Now, anger tinged with disbelief is welling up inside me. Really and truly, this is low, even for Hollywood. Why this guy? His resume doesn't exactly inspire confidence in me. Who in their right mind is going to finance this movie, let alone go and see it?

I can't even explain what I'm feeling right now. I've gone beyond being enraged, and I've arrived at some higher level, some kind of transcendent state. Super Saiyan? No wait, that's a planned sequel to another B-Grade Anime-to-Hollywood movie.
