Okay, I'm officially done with all of the by-the-numbers fantasy movies that are out there. Ever since Harry Potter burst onto the scene, there have been way too many stories written and/or adapted into movies for my taste. I want to say that I'm tired of the whole "chosen one" analogy that most follow – but I can't because that theme is prevalent nearly everywhere you look. No, I'm tired of the formula that exists in this recent trend in fantasy movies:
I know I've just broken down nearly every great sci-fi/fantasy movie out there, but I need a break from all of the crap that's out there right now (we saw The Golden Compass the other night... while fun, I wasn't too impressed).
Let's do a little bit of originality check and muck the formula sometimes, please.
