Saw the World War Z trailer today. (Also saw Iron Man 3 (the movie not the trailer), which totally rocked!)

Was expecting to be annoyed by action scenes, explosions, and Brad Pitt being his movie-star-ish self.

In the end, wasn't annoyed by any of those, because I was too busy restraining myself from yelling angrily about the FAST ZOMBIES.

The zombies were running. RUNNING. In WORLD WAR Z. Running. It was like it was an action movie or something. An action movie with FRELLING FAST ZOMBIES.

Do they not understand the point of the book at all?

*weeps for humanity*

Sure they do. People like zombie. Zombie rake in box office smash. Use clever title and standard plot. Quick gaaaaaains.

...Well, that was the plan when they started six years ago. Before they had to go back and reshoot half of it. Holy crap, this is going to suck.

FI always thought the book would be best as a miniseries. Leave it to Brad Pitt to totally miss the point.

Aaaaargh. Headdesk FOREVER.

Yeah, it would make an awesome miniseries, or even TV series. There's a lot of stuff that could be expanded so we get to know the characters for longer. Gorram what might have been.

(Also the parts they ended up re-shooting sounded awesome and less point-missing, though I don't really know.)

According to gossip sites, the original script was considered Oscar-worthy. Then Brad Pitt got attached to it. Then Brad Pitt kicked the Oscar-worthy script writer and replaced him with a script writer who made things go boom. Then they reshot forever.

It probably also doesn't help that Pitt's partner was going through a pretty big deal during the last part of the reshoots (I think, looking at the timeline), so the leader of the vanity project was distracted through a lot of the vanity project.
