I am number four review/rant
This might be a little late but I was recently able to see this movie. I had been interested in seeing it after I read about its inception in a magazine about screenplays. The movie itself I felt was good it was most of the things that I would want in a sci-fi movie, But after rereading the article that I read it pissed me off that it could have been so much better.
I am number four is your straight up sci-fi teen romance movie a genre it self that I just don't understand. I mean I get that studios want to make money so they want 18-35 males and the teen girl crowds to both go so they add a nice looking male lead and they inject some romance to make it appeal to a wider audience. In this article I I found out that this movie was originally a book that was being written at the time and they wanted to make a movie out of it before it came out. It then went on to say that it was given to different screen writers to get it made as soon as possible. They had a draft that they felt was best they were going to get they chose to give to one last screen writer. this screen writers sole job was to make the move more girly.
This I find both amusing as well as infuriating. What if this movie was some kind of epic movie that the internet would be talking about for years to come then this cunt got her hands on it and fucked it up.
I did like this movie. I think it will make a good series and i will most likely see the next, but maybe it could have been even better if uncreative people like movie executives hadn't gotten their hands on it
