ipsuel Posted June 16, 2014 Share Posted June 16, 2014 I bet the guy that wanted Michelangelo to make the creation scene in the sistine chapel did not tell him to add fat little baby angels with lutes and flutes, or that Adam should be placed on a cream cloud. But the adaptation turned out wonderful, even though it is only loosely based upon the original story. But if I want a painting of Sleeping Beauty in the rose covered castle, I don't want the castle to have black bricks and is haunted and the witch is just an evil monster and she is covered in devils and the sky is black and lightning everywhere. Sometimes make a change for the better (Cersei and Tommen scene in Blackwater) and sometimes just stick to the books. It is hard to determine what will be good, but I think cutting half the plot, yet extending it over ten episodes and then cutting out all the awesome stuff... But I'm guessing that adaptation would NOT turn out so well if he threw in random giraffes, or had Adam sitting on a puppy's head, or floating baby hedgehogs -- or any other random things, that have nothing to do with anything AND that actually change the story. And guess what? If those changes were made? I'd critique them as crap, too. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
