Just when you thought it wasn’t possible for Hollywood to create anything else as stupid as Battleship or the impending Stretch Armstrong movie, the news comes out that the dildos who adapted Mortal Kombat will be making a film adaptation of another hit video game in Tetris. SIGH. It’s hard to even react to shit like this anymore with surprise because the precedent has been set. Anything that any group of people loved at any one time in history, no matter how stupid or ridiculous, can have a movie made about it or based on it. Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff says (via the Wall Street Journal), “It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie…This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.”
What the fuck does that even mean?
Once again, I urge you, as I’ve done in the past – PLEASE avoid paying your hard earned money to see shit sandwiches like this. It only encourages more of it. Instead, go see films like Inherent Vice when it is released. Paying with your money to see films is like voting – if you don’t vote for it, Hollywood won’t fucking make it. Now, sally forth and watch good movies.
