: I would rather not get all uppity here, but I've already
: written most of these scripts already. The problem
: with a lot of films that have been adapted from books
: and/or games, is that the original story in its
: original form gets all twisted and mutilated by the
: time it gets to the screen. When I saw "Great
: Expectations" and "I Know What You Did Last
: Summer," I had to question whether the
: screenwriters actually read the books.
: I have stayed as close as possible to the original story.
: Sure, here and there you have to put in little
: tid-bits of information and minor characters to make
: the story understandable outside of gameplay. Also, I
: don't feel that mixing up the order of the films/games
: would be true to Myth either.
: My idea is this: Film 1: Myth:TFL
: Film 2: Myth II:SB
: Film 3: Myth III:WA
: Plain and simple, just like the game series. Chimera, as
: I stated not too long ago, I am writing as a
: featurette. Only about 45-60 minutes long, and to be,
: say, a companion to the Myth 2:SB Special Edition DVD
: (or something to that nature). Myth III I am still
: tinkering with, because I don't like the way it was
: put together. Too many mysteries conveniently solved
: for us. That's what made TFL and SB good is that we
: didn't know the whole truth. MWA came along and
: answered it all for us, thereby making the prospect of
: a Myth IV not so exciting. What mysteries are left to
: If the films are put together in the order of the games,
: then a Finn and Soulblighter moment wouldn't make
: sense. Don't try and confuse the audience any more
: than we have to. And, to put the films in any other
: order would give us less to be excited about when TFL
: and SB came around. Nothing would be unknown to the
: audience by then if you showed MWA first.
well since you are the one working on this whole idea, I'm going to say that you and you alone have the authority to decide what goes.
What you say makes sense, and hopefully if you make this and it is actually a success, it will be good.
P.S. unless something comes up for debate I'm ending my part in this thread.
