(Okay, a bit past its prime as a topic, but this was being written before the Dragon Con coverage on the site started. Besides, from conversations I heard at Dragon Con it’s still a topic of discussion in fandom.)
I think I’ve seen more post-mortems on this film than just about any other. Most of them blame the downfall of the film on its more militant critics, but I’m not sure about that. So what caused a film like this to go bust?



Part 1 can be found here. It’s a bit long and it’s not entirely necessary to read it in order to read Part 2, but there are things I discussed about remakes and reboots in general that I’ll reference here. You should still be able to get what I’m saying without reading Part 1 first, but be aware in advance that references will be made.

And now there shall be blood.
