Three Bodies Too Many

Posted on Thursday, March 21st, 2024

Dave!I just... I don't even know what to think... they butchered The Three-Body Problem on Netflix.

It's incredibly dull, relying on mundane interpersonal drama to drive the story in stupid ways (and it's hilarious how they use the musical score to try to make boring things more interesting). I'm half-way through the eight episodes and don't even know if I want to suffer through any more of it. Because I honest-to-God don't understand what the dumbasses who ruined Game of Thrones thought they were doing with the material.

All I can do is implore everybody who is interested in the series to read the original novels. The English translation is not a cakewalk. It's loads of science and physics which is slow-going if you're not into that. And understanding the Chinese historical background is essential to understanding the purpose of the story. But ultimately it's a brilliant novel. Genius, really, with some of the ideas that drive it. Though I don't know that I truly appreciated it until I read through all three books twice...

The Three Body Problem Book Trilogy

As for Netflix... for the love of God, stop giving David Benioff and D. B. Weiss money to ruin more source material. Wasn't the Game of Thrones debacle enough to prove they have no fucking clue what they're doing? And definitely stop giving Zack Snyder money to crap stupid films out of his ass. Holy crap... all this money being wasted on shit that could be going towards actual artists who understand how to create compelling films and series.

    At least their Star Wars contributions were nixed.

    On the upside, Zach Snyder did create the greatest homoerotic film in Greek history. 300 is peak Snyder. It was all downhill after that…

      Here’s the thing… I thought “300” was darn good. It was pretty faithful to the graphic novel. On the other end of the spectrum, I thought that his “Watchmen” failed because he DIDN’T follow the graphic novel ending. And yet… I still enjoyed it. BUT THEN… they did that brilliant HBO mini-series which actually brought the source material ending to the screen, and suddenly I DIDN’T like Snyder’s “Watchmen” any more because his insistence on the original ending not being filmable turned out to be bullshit. He just didn’t want to do it. At which point I was longing for HBO to make a mini-series of the original series and follow the source material.

  3. Oh man, I was gonna watch this later. Boo, maybe I’ll skip it.
