Ignorance is bliss.Some guy writes some stupid movies and gets paid millions to let people 'ride' them. Seems dumb to me. I know it's a 'theme' park but I'd rather pay less and just enjoy the rides. I don't care about a theme especially when it costs that much. There is definitely something wrong with our society when one can make so much. So no one else could write a movie about a big shark or an alien???? I think those were his movies but I don't really know...or care!
As for the comment up above about people not caring about legends anymore. I do agree - which is why Universal needs to find a way to actually spice up their beloved attractions without changing the heart/core of it. What happened to Earthquake was, in my opinion, a genius idea. They kept the heart of it, but changed the story around to fit our times. Bravo!
And using that philosophy you used, why is GREAT MOVIE RIDE still popular at Disney Studios?!?
