Yeah, that's I'm saying.

There's some good successful work there. Alita is a recent scifi fit, and Shutter Island I think is a very good film (just a very niche one) and Altered Carbon was great.

But then there's one of the worst Terminator movies ever, Alexander and the giant mixed bag that film was, two failed TV series, and the mess that was Pathfinder.

Night Watch could honestly go in either category, but for me what made Night Watch passable was the camera work and acting that was too good for a mediocre film, so...

While not a massive sample size by any means her best work was all adaptations of existing novels/stories like Altered Carbon, Battle Angel and Nightswatch. So given the large amount of source material available for the Kotor period I feel comfortable in being at least a little excited.

I personally preferred the Altered Carbon show to the books and I liked the books quite a bit, she never made any changes just for the sake of change mostly stuff that just would not have moved from book to show easily. Also she made the main character less of a douche because in the books he sales past anti hero straight into massive bell end territory quite often to the point there’s a couple of times we’re you stop caring if he actually survives.

Ohhh hell no - Altered Carbon TV show (which I mostly enjoyed as a fun adventure) destroys and twists the entire central message of the books. The "freedom fighter" BS as a background rather than spec ops that it invents is awful

Living forever was never the problem - the problem was power and wealth being controlled by a few and that tech being exploited only for their advantage ....but the show was more interested in T+A

IMO the last epsiode is terrible - the conclusion making zero sense in the context of the world - the wealthy man suddnely can't buy his way out? Really cos thats how its portrayed up till that very moment, thats even without the technicality that he is neither in his right mind at the time of the murder or even the same person.... bad bad ending.

Back on Star Wars - MCU have no problem making interesting, clever, fun films full of great charaacters where they explore new ideas - are nto totally tied to the comics. having someone come in make something that "subvert expectations / write crap" repeatedly for the sake of it is a wierd choice for a action advneture series.

Star Wars (for me and many others I suspect) has never been more than action adventure in space = maybe giving that overarching theme as a memo would help the next film maker
