    Hi all,

    Wondering what you think are the worst decisions made by studios?

    For me, it's that Deadwood 4.... "couldn't find the funding". Really???

    That same year, an example of what HBO green-lit: Tell Me You Love Me
    Tell Me You Love Me revolves around three couples, Jamie and Hugo (Borth and Kirby), Katie and David (Walker and DeKay) and Carolyn and Palek (Walger and Scott), each with their own problems concerning intimacy in their relationships. They seek the help of therapist May Foster, who herself has relationship issues with her partner Arthur (Selby).

    Taking a book series like the Hunger Games or Twilight and stretching three books into four movies.

    The current plan is to make the Hobbit into a trilogy. This is the only Tolkien I've read all the way through. I like the quick pace of the book.

    Battlefield Earth, what the hell were they thinking. Arguably one of the worst movies ever.

    And making remakes like The Three Stooges, seriously?

    The Hills Have Eyes remake.
    The Omen remake.
    Taxas Chainsaw Massacre remake.

    See a pattern here?

    I'm sure there's one in there somewhere. Perhaps that every title contains an 'E' :confused:

    Just about ANY Will Ferrell movie. Why Hollywood, why?

    I know I'm swimming against the tide here, but on the subject of remakes, I have to confess a fondness for Snyder's Dawn of the Dead, and an apathy for Romero's dull original.

    Quoted for truth.
