A number of users have pointed out that poor writing remains the Movie-verse's greatest failing. Some have been more specific, stating that the writers' poor understanding of the source material is the root cause of most that is wrong with the Movie-verse. Do you agree with this statement? Would you rather have had someone with profound experience with TF lore pen the Movies (someone like Bob Budiansky, Simon Furman, Nick Roche, Bob Forward or Marty Isenberg, for instance), or at least be on hand as a creative consultant? Personally, I feel that such a move should have been made on day one. Quite frankly, I'm surprised (nay, shocked) that no such decision appears to have been so much as considered where the live-action films are concerned. I believe that the creative teams we've had to date lacked a firm grasp of TF fiction (and perhaps even a respect for it), which showed very tellingly in the final product. If we had someone like, say, Furman on board, I think we would have gotten far superior material, which would have pleased both fans and laypeople. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
