@takashichea: Rob Orci is perhaps one of the worst screenwriters ever. Some may argue that he is good because he wrote the screenplay for the Star Trek reboot movie, but I argue that JJ Abrams had more control over that project. Now, when Orci has more control over his project, you get stuff like Cowboys & Aliens, Transformers, and The Island. All of which are not great. There is also a feeling that his scripts pander more to the movie studios. And let's not forget that he wrote the script for Transformers 2. Yeah, the script was written in only 2 weeks, but you don't need 2 weeks to know that robot scrotum is not funny.
Also, Orci is a bit of a jerk. Take a look at the comments he gave when fans said that Star Trek into Darkness was bad:
Having said that, two biggest Star Treks in a row with best reviews is hardly a description of “broken.” And frankly, your tone and attidude make it hard for me to listen to what might otherwise be decent notions to pursue in the future. As I love to say, there is a reason why I get to write the movies, and you don’t.
STID has infinetly [sic] more social commentary than Raiders [of the lost ark] in every Universe, and I say that with Harrison Ford being a friend. You lose credibility big time when you don’t honestly engage with the FUCKING WRITER OF THE MOVIE ASKING YOU AN HONEST QUESTION. You prove the cliche of shitty fans. And rude in the process. So, as Simon Pegg would say: FUCK OFF!
When Ocri is talking about the social commentary in Star Trek Into Darkness, he is talking about the movie's commentary on 9/11. Allegedly, the movie's message is that perhaps the 9/11 attacks were allowed to happen by the US government in order to go to war with Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries. It's pretty dumb.
Now enough with that. Let's talk about Supernatural. The spin-off, Supernatural: Bloodlines, may be gone, but there is word that CW is not giving up on a spin-off. According to the Hollywood Reporter, CW will try once more to get a spin-off done in season 10, which will air in the fall. So, yay for them.
Taka said: I thought I was watching the final episode of Supernatural this week. Man, it was a good episode. I might watch Arrow's Finale even though I haven't even watch the series at all. I saw Slade and Flash. I fell in love.
I bet you can't wait for the real saeason finale next week then =P
And the Flash is getting his own spin-off series too. I wonder how this will turn out.
