Alan Moore hates Hollywood

Post  Sean on Thu Sep 25, 2008 10:02 pm

Comics iconoclast Alan Moore disparages that Hollywood tends to dilute and distort stories in atempts to adapt into films. The original source material is lost in translation, becoming vandalized and diminished. He considers V for Vendetta and Watchmen (stories he wrote) such victims.

"I find film in its modern form to be quite bullying. It spoon-feeds us, which has the effect of watering down our collective cultural imagination. It is as if we are freshly hatched birds looking up with our mouths open waiting for Hollywood to feed us more regurgitated worms. The 'Watchmen' film sounds like more regurgitated worms. I, for one, am sick of worms. Can't we get something else?

"It may be true that the only reason the comic book industry now exists is for this purpose, to create characters for movies, board games and other types of merchandise. Comics are just a sort of pumpkin patch growing franchises that might be profitable for the ailing movie industry."
