I am so done with Alan Moore!!

O.K. To all who don't know, Alan Moore is the Forefather of the "Graphic Novel" that most recently film companies have been adoring basically because of the easy accessable aspect of the medium, to the story panels and the stories themselves which goes back to the aforementioned Alan moore who authored not the scripts but the books and characters that were turned into the following films, "Constantine","From Hell","V for Vendetta","Swamp Thing", "The League of Extaordinary Gentlemen" and the much anticepated "Watchmen" by the maestro director, Zach Snyder of "300" and "Dawn of the Dead" fame.
Now,for the most part, I totally agree to an extent with Mr.Moore with his grudge with the film companies and their handleing of his work in the past, especially with "League", but of all the directors out their right now who have taken something on paper and put it to the silver screen, the best ones are w/o a doubt, are Zach Snyder, Robert Rodriquez and the new guy on the block, Frank Miller-who has been in the Comic Book industry just as long as Mr.Moore and has embraced film medium and understands what it takes to represent your product. Miller couldv'e long ago said "Hey, you want to make a movie based upon my product, O'kay, pay me then u can have it all". But you know what, out of respect for the medium and being one of the "protectors" of the industry, he said "Lemme in on that,and you know, you better do it that way, because the fans of MY CHARACTER OR THAT CHARACTER THAT I HELPED BUILD, will not like that", til one day a film that I believe not only changed the way movies are filmed but also helped shape the comic to film industry,"SIN CITY", was not only a great film,but was the most perfect transition from paper to screen that has ever happened, so perfect that even Frank Miller helped direct it!!! Because of that film ,a year later the next big surprise was "300",another perfect transition and should've gotten nominated for an Oscar for best picture, because what was learned in "Sin CITY" was perfected here,more thanks to Frank Miller again!!
Of course during all this, all I ever heard from Moore, who likes to make himself so mysterious and un -accessable,that whenever the good news comes in, he acts like a total ass, only because he still kicking himself for selling out his copyrights to Warner Bros. so that they could hand them over to their echelon of hack directors.
If he really gave a fuck about his creativity, he would of offered to be involved and not to just write the script, fer cris'sake.No, he just wanted to be introverted,grow his beard longer and attract teenage girls who think he's "mystic". You know what they call people who believe in your b.s.??Followers.And all you have done is built your own little English-European cult of personality. Its fucking old hat,Alan. Wow, you have a movie where you sit in a chair and pontificate about life in 2008??Are you fucking serious???YOU ARE A COMIC BOOK WRITER, NOTHING MORE.If you really gave a fuck about your product,YOU shouldv'e been more involved in the films that were made from your books!! But no, I had to sit through "constantine" and "league" both of which are loosely based on books that I for one love to read.No instead all you did was bitch and whine about how its you against them or "i don't care", till this past month when asked about "watchmen" you said "There are three or four companies now that exist for the sole purpose of creating not comics, but storyboards for films. It may be true that the only reason the comic book industry now exists is for this purpose, to create characters for movies, board games and other types of merchandise. Comics are just a sort of pumpkin patch growing franchises that might be profitable for the ailing movie industry."
Umm. Just to let YOU know. This movie would'nt even been made since you signed off on it long ago. So don't burn the meal you started ,Mr. Moore, its YOUR fault you are not involved, and your fault if the movie is actally crap like the others. Mr Snyder, more than once offered and you refused...so if I were you, if and when "Watchmen" does come out, you better like it...even if you don't see it, ya fuck.

Kurt Russell has to be in it

-"Liberty Meadows", rated R, and filmed like "Garfield"
-"The Avengers"
-An "Uncanny X-men" television series instead of some overblown film, done ala "Smallville"
