i hate when directors decide to make a film adaption of a comic or game,and have no idea what that particular comic or game is even about.although there are a few directors who get things right.

I always wonder how Uwe Boll manages to keep making movies (most of them based on video games). His career should have ended with "House of the Dead", yet that didn't stop him from making "Alone in the Dark", "Bloodrayne", "Postal", and all sorts of other drek.

Uwe Boll idiocy is hard to top. However, I play Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg (in attack mode).

It's not just Hollywood directors, but in general, movie directors. Nothing "original" seems to come out these days, just remakes, or movies with the same themes, just a different format.

I heard Avatar was bad and made no sense. I don't think that directors should remake series or whatever because they won't be able to include everything and the plot usually ends up kind of different..... And why would American directors remake anime series? I dunno i think its weird.

It doesn't make them idiotic, just that they lack the skills to please everyone. (as does everybody)

The lack of knowledge of the source material isn't necessarily a negative. The new Star Trek movie was made by people that weren't fans and it turned into a hit. And with Avatar the Last Airbender, Shyamalan is fan of the show, but the movie is terrible.

And you can't really put all the blame on the directors, movies are very collaborative process. And often the studio, not the director has the final say in how the film turns out.

Actually I've heard Shyamalan wasn't a fan of the show at first, his family members persuaded him to watch it. He really thought he can make an asian fantasy film that he thought would appeal to the majority of the audience (which is white) by having white actors as the heroes so he can make money. It's all about the green baby.

His family persuaded him to watch the show before he was attached to the film. Because both he kids liked it, he sought to make the film.
