Wilful destruction of literary art.
24 October 2019 | by barnabytoyeSee all my reviews

Who decided to take THE greatest science fiction story ever written and make this slow, senseless, passion less, pointless, plodding mess? Why? Why?? You took everything that made this story great and exciting and terrifying and clever and thought provoking and chucked it away!! I'm off to crayon over the Mona Lisa and then record a rap version of Nessun Dorma, cause, you know, that will make them more relevant to modern society and because, well, I'm smarter than their creator's. This should have been made by people who actually read the ###### book . I feel cheated. When will these Movie/TV writers/producers realise that this book is still relevant and being read - 120 YEARS-after it was written for a reason and Stop trying to make it fit their narrow/current/contemporary views/agendas!!! For the love of God please just give us our book on the big screen! (sob!) Kudos for setting it in the correct time and correct location, 1 star for each.
