Showgirls is a cult classic?

The Internet made Snakes On A Plane a smash hit and elected Ron Paul for president!
The Internet can do ANYTHING!

Re-cancel Crossfire. Then maybe you can start talking.

I'm pleasantly surprised this was in CNN's "entertainment" section.  My expectations are so low for CNN I assumed this was a front page headline.

My thoughts exactly.  If this is true and I'm just oblivious, I need to drink.... less.

They're making a movie of that book?

I've never read it, but based on my understanding of the plot, any movie that doesn't have a triple-X rating is going to be a let down.

We're not too fond of slideshows, either.

Heath Ledger turned in an amazing performance because he went to an insane asylum and studied the people there to gain an insight into their motives.  How they move, why they move, speech patterns, unconscious little tics they have that would drive driven most people nuts to watch for more than a few hours.  Guess what?  He never left the asylum.


Ben might suck.  Probably will.  But he'll have Kevin Smith pumping him full of batman info every farking day until the opening.  We can expect one stupid catch-phrase per movie, but it shouldn't be as bad as daredevil.  The holes in that movie were so gaping, porn directors were taking notes.  They can't drop the ball, or they are out billion$ in licencing, merchandising, and box-office fees.
/Heath got the award, and the standing ovation, if memory serves, because he farking died
//yes, it was a completely believable performance; I had to check twice: "Who did they get to play the Joker, and what happened to Ledger?"  -"Heath Ledger is the Joker"  "That's Heath Ledger?"

Not as a series, but not many series that are cancelled after one season get a feature film.  That was definitely fan-driven.

What did the internet do now?

Well, the internet did more or less make Fifty Shades of Grey possible, so the same community's backlash against that movie casting makes a perverse sort of sense...

We, the internet, have been telling you about NSA data centers siphoning off massive amounts of information from the internet, for well over a decade now CNN.

Perhaps you should remove the 2x4 lodged in your eye before you try to remove the splinter from the eye of the internet, CNN.

That slideshow is baffling.  I think it's supposed to be a list of people in roles that the internet through a hissy fit over, but a good chunk of them are shiatty casting jobs in even shiattier movies that flopped.

I think after Snakes on a Plane Hollywood has learned not to trust fan input.  Serenity wasn't financially successful either, though it came closer than Snakes.

They announce the names of the lead actors for publicity and buzz, not for feedback.  The internet lost credibility when it failed to put its collective money where its collective mouth is.

FARK YOU, that's why!

Smith was writing Daredevil at the time. His contribution to Batman was having him wet himself. Now are you getting the problem?

In its defense, the Internet doesn't fellate every politician or right-wing think-tank 'expert' who beat the drums for starting a war.  Unlike you, CNN.
