I'm starting to acquire a foreboding sense of grief
For this increasingly-uncomfortable game they're calling "Thief"
I'm after sprawling levels and organic thieving stunts
Not cutscenes and pre-animated moves beloved by cunts
Is this another stealing of a once-familiar name
To keep afloat the sinking ship of next-gen console games?
You've broken in and stolen one more thing that I adore
Well, call it what you like, but it'll never be Thief 4
"They are adaptations, just not in the literal, pedestrian sense. I adapt essence. I've been told that Othello is a moorish captain, but in my mind he's a magical talking cello with a lisp. Who is right? Is there a right? For that matter, is there a left?"
"Is this the first time a title has been remade, instead of a movie? And God Created Woman shares little with the 1956 Brigitte Bardot movie except for its name..."
"The Patriot is “based” on the book The Last Canadian. I use quotes on based because it is based on the book in the same way Transformers is based on Les Misérables."
"If the movie were retitled Ben Stiller Is Secretly Way More Awesome Than You, I'd probably have less of an issue."

Shyamalan's true achievement in this film is that he takes a thrilling cult TV series, Avatar: The Last Airbender , and he systematically leaches all the personality and soul out of it.
Get ready for the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling novel, that's got everything you love about the title... and nothing else.
Every single word in this title is a lie. There are no teenagers, no mutants, no ninjas, and no turtles. Well, there actually be may turtles — it's hard to tell.

"Hey, wait. You know what would have made it even more of a Wayne's World game? If you controlled a big hand. Both Wayne and Garth have hands. And faces too. Wait! They also both wear blue jeans, so you could control a pair of jeans that has to infiltrate a face warehouse to get their hands back! And if you collected the letters that spelled, "SCHWING," your pants would get a hard-on for a bonus 2000 "Party On!" Points. That would be a better game and keep in mind, I have no formal video game training."
"I'm "Alone", but I'm not in a "Home." I'm in some sort of botanical garden. Also, why is this taking place during summer? Did anyone on this—and I use this term loosely—"team of developers" watch the film before sitting down and making the game? I know they had to put it together in one whole weekend, but damn son. That is some serious commitment to being unfaithful to your source material!"
"This little boy is Alex, not Kevin, Alex. He doesn't even know Kevin, that's because Kevin isn't in this movie. None of the original characters are in this movie. This is because nothing about this movie has anything to do with Home Alone. Despite the fact that it carries the name Home Alone. So, why is it called Home Alone? BECAUSE IT IS A GODDAMN HORRIBLE MOVIE!"
Judging from the title and David Hasselhoff's fondness for not trying too hard, you'd think this show would be Baywatch, at night. Instead they took the extra step and made it Baywatch, only in a detective agency solving beach cases. But if you watch it in slow motion with the brightness turned down, yeah, it's Baywatch, at night.
"In May of 1996, I loved a silly British sci-fi show that was unlike unlike anything else on television. And then people I will never meet with power I will never dream of took it and made it just like everything else."
"For a show that had the name Highlander, it had almost nothing at all to do with immortals. The first half of the series was almost entirely rejected plots from NYPD Blue. Amanda’s flashbacks were rare and tangential when they did appear... Worst of all, when immortals did appear, they just sucked. We got none of the history we had with bad immortals from the previous series. We didn’t even get someone who could delightfully chew the scenery like Mario Van Peebles did as Kane in Highlander III. We got characters that were just as bland and incompetent as Nick was. One episode’s big villain is an immortal who has figured out a mathematical algorithm that takes all the immortals in the world and tells him who he needs to kill and in what order to become the last one. Yeah…there’s a guy whose big schtick is that he plays the fantasy football version of immortality. Forget the fact that no one can calculate how a swordfight to the death is going to turn out due to all the variables involved
