* Man, it sucks to be an American {{horror}} fan these days. The only good horror movies are being made in Europe and East Asia, they all go [[DirectToVideo straight to DVD]] with zero promotion when [[NoExportForYou (or if)]] they get here, and most American horror movies are either [[TheRemake remakes]] (of either the classics or of [[ForeignRemake the aforementioned foreign films]]), [[{{Bowdlerise}} heavily sanitized]] by [[MediaWatchdog the MPAA]], or [[BMovie Z-grade]] garba... wait, [[http://www.joblo.com/arrow/index.php?id=23744 you're telling me]] that ''Film/{{Hatchet}} II'' is getting a wide theatrical release? '''[[UnratedEdition Unrated]], with the {{gorn}} fully intact?''' Holy shit, there is still hope for American horror!

* A DoubleSubversion occurred with ''InterviewWithTheVampire''. The initial subversion was when Creator/TomCruise was cast as Lestat, [[WTHCastingAgency sparking protests]] from Creator/AnneRice and a fair number of fans. The double subversion? Anne Rice saw the final cut of the movie and publicly took back all of her complaints about the casting, telling her fans they would love it.

** What's this? Creator/JKRowling's writing a screenplay? No doubt for a film adaptation of [[Literature/TheCuckoosCalling of of her]] [[Literature/TheCasualVacancy other wor]] -- wait, what's that you say? [[Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem It's set in the Potterverse?]] It's a prequel about the author of Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem? ''Set in TheRoaringTwenties''? Cue the sound of the fandom ''exploding''.

* Literally the only thing most ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' fans liked about the ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms'' film was Music/{{Kesha}} as Pizzazz. She had been a popular choice amongst fans for Pizzazz in a theoretical live action ''Jem'' film for years. [[spoiler:Now if only she had been in the film beyond TheStinger... They really missed out on their chance to have Ke$ha scream and throw fits as [[SpoiledBrat Pizzazz.]]]]
