Thanks to Kick-Ass I think I get it now

When you’re doing a live-action take of a well known franchise you fight against the hardcore fans as if they’re a bunch of Apple fanbois.

When you’re doing a movie not stemming from a well-known franchise while trying to do something new, you fight against reviewers from newspapers and magazines as if they’re the only ones out there who know what you can and cannot do in a movie.

I just came back from my voyage to a world full of 3D animated figures posing as humans and monsters. After some thought I can say that I liked it, nothing more, nothing less. It was nice movie but nothing I would kill for or watch again – which is really sad because it blew so many chances.

Monsters vs. Aliens (MvA), dear writers, had the chance to really gain some land against the gods called Pixar and do some extremely funny and stylish stuff but unfortunately the result fails in some ways too often.
