NeuroHeart wrote:So the impression I get her is that, instead of making films or branching out into other media, you would prefer Trey and Matt just do South Park? Because working with the same exact concept they've been working with for two decades is, what, not lazy?
It's not the exact same concept, though. Every episode has its own plot, since the world resets every time. They have to rack their brains to think of a new story/concept every week...but there's no thinking required in having a film version for Book of Mormon. The story's already there, the characters are already there, the songs are already there...all that's really left to do is to make lines in the Broadway musical film-compatible.
I wouldn't call a screenwriter creative if he's just doing a film adaptation of a book's story. Replace book with musical and there you go.
NeuroHeart wrote:But heaven forbid they take that concept, write an incredibly complex story, and put it in the form of a video game. Yeah, because the plot of RPGs ranks well below the plot of a 22-minute episode.
I don't doubt they worked their ass off on this video game, and it's impressive they wrote a story for it. The problem is, they're not going to go down in history for making a video game. They'll be remembered for their movies, musicals and show.
I also have a personal bias against video games as I don't play them.
NeuroHeart wrote:And while you are completely unwilling to pay for seeing the incredible musical they devoted eight years of their lives to, you are going to insult the creators for also wanting to put that in another format, one that would perhaps be more accessible to fans all over the world, or those who didn't want to pay "whatever ridiculous amount" to experience Book of Mormon. (my tickets, for the record were a fraction of what you seem to think they must cost, but I digress)
I'm sure the musical IS good, but if they wanted their work to be accessible to fans all over the world, why not just do the film, without the musical? Probably because Trey's always wanted to do a Broadway musical.
They did cost about 300 back in December 2011 when I was in the States and wanted to see it.
There's nothing wrong with branching out into other media, by the way. Team America was brilliant. But if they released "Team America: The Musical" on Broadway, or "Scott Tenorman Must Die: The Movie," I'd also call that lazy.

Yes, it is. I don't want to be complaining all the time. Sorry.

They're not doing anything new there, of course, but they'll be making less of it so we'll hopefully get fewer sub-par episodes per season. If that puts you off, feel free to turn heel and walk away from the show and anything associated with it.
As I said to NeuroHeart, I do think crafting new episodes requires creativity. In their own words, they kill themselves to come up with new episodes.
Big-Will wrote:2. With their new venture, Important Studios, getting off the ground, they'll be producing other people's work, and maybe they'll think of other original work to create. They had a hand in executive-producing How's Your News? for MTV a few years back, after all.
Translation: they want to get super rich, so they'll oversee a bunch of projects but not really do anything (aka executive-producing).
Nothing wrong with wanting to be super rich...I just wish they'd come up with a new movie/idea entirely. Team America (a puppet movie) came outta nowhere...so did That's My Bush!.

Yeah, and I'm sure you act the same in real life. I bet you walk up to pedestrians on the sidewalk and tell them their mothers should have aborted them.
Due to the cloak of anonymity on this board, I am more honest than I am in real life. If I said the same things in real life, some moron (such as yourself) might punch me or something.

Here's the difference between my country and yours:
In the United States, people say something like that, and then proceed to actually shoot someone between the eyes (imbeciles like James Holmes who can readily purchase weapons).
In my country, people say something like that, and don't act out on it.
So it's now official. THQ got shat on in this economy. Now Ubisoft has TSoT. Man, f*ck Ubisoft and Uplay. I'm glad I'm getting it for the Xbox 360. At least they aren't as bad as EA.
On another note, I read somewhere that TSoT may not be released on March 2013.
My FEAR though....is that this could give M&T more legal time to set up a case against THQ and Ubisoft and the date keeps getting pushed back due to Legal issues (not production) and now they try to stop getting the game out all together
January 1, 2014.
f*ck you, THQ! Ubisoft has the game now!
Although I'm steamed they're pushing it back for the goddamn new season. Watch them push the Season 16 DVD back, too, and just starve us
But April 30, huh? Damn!
