Fanboy's: Why we hate them.

Comic Fan's, Fan boy's, Movie Fans, Sci Fi fans etc....

Any one of these names can apply in some way to most of us who visit this site. One thing however that has been continuously aggravating the more I frequent this site is the CONSTANT COMPLAINING. Jensen Akles for Cap, Armie Hammer for Cap A, they better do it right, Green Lanterns ring isn't shiny enough, etc..........

What are we accomplishing by posting constant pictures of who we think should play a character in a movie, to me it seems like wasted time and energy. We are not the executives and producers of the movie's. So the constant squabbling, complaining and discontent with the choices these professionals make is for nothing. This is part of the reason that comic book and sci fi fans have gained the "derogatory" term of Fan Boys. What fan boys means to many, including my self is a usually an out of shape, nerdy, sniffling, virgin, fat, dorky, smelly, and socially retarded human being with about $14000 worth of comic book figurines in his living room. We know that for the most part, this is not true for many of us on this site.

I am not saying that we don’t have a voice, because I know many decisions made in Hollywood have been influenced by fans, in particular a web site you may know of called AICN, often influences movie studios by the feedback they get from the fans on the site. Most recently Sly Stallone decided to change the story of Rambo 5 because after he pitched it to fans on AICN for feedback, the response was overwhelmingly negative.

But what I am saying is stop or even better lower complaining about the movies and actors in them, we should be grateful that there even being made for our enjoyment. Yes, some of the choices they make may be poor IN YOUR OPINION, but not in theirs. If you want to change something, become and actor or go to school to become a producer and even better, start your own movie studio! That way I don’t have to here "they better get it right!" or "do it right this time!".....what in your ultimate fan boy awesomeness exactly is the definition of right, I am sure there are many. Becasue "your take" on a movie might be just as sucky as the next guys to other people.

Are you telling me that you've never seen a movie that had an actor you thought was wrong for the part? Are you telling me that you've never said, "You know, so-and-so would have better than this guy"? You can't honestly tell me that you take every movie you watch, whether good or bad, and say, oh well, they made it for my enjoyment, so i'll go ahead and like it.

As for the rabid fanboys...you're going to see those people on any site with a message board. whether its about comics, sci-fi, movies, or even football, there are ALWAYS going to be the rabid fans. All I can tell you is that its the nature of the boards. No offense, but if you can't deal with it, then maybe visiting sites like this isn't for you.

So, your opinion is to shut up. Nice effort, but it's obviusly that you hate the stereotype nerd.

You remind me of..
someone I used to know...
but I can't remember who...
maybe there is a reason for that.

Yeah some fanboys take it WAY too far. But here's the solution: Deal with It.
You're not yoing to change thei opinion by calling them fanboys.
If the are trolls, report them, simple as that

"Most recently Sly Stallone decided to change the story of Rambo 5 because after he pitched it to fans on AICN for feedback"

The only thing they changed was the title not the actual story.

Fanboys do get annoying sometimes but they have some good points especailly when their complaints are valid. When they get mad at small details in movies for instance Optimus Prime not being the right kind of semi then that gets annoying.

There are different levels of fanboys. We're not ALL Harry Knowels, dude.

Look it up.

On October 12, 2007, Lionsgate announced that the film title was being changed to Rambo: To Hell and Back. After some negative feedback from the online community, Stallone spoke with AICN's Harry Knowles[6] and said:

"Lionsgate jumped the gun on this. I just was thinking that the title John Rambo was derivative of Rocky Balboa and might give people the idea that this is the last Rambo film, and I don't necessarily feel that it will be. He's definitely a superb athlete, there's no reason he can't continue onto another adventure. Like John Wayne with The Searchers."

They don't listen to the fans for the most part, and certainly aren't going to rewrite an entire story because 50 people don't like it.

Fanboys will always be out there, and you can't say you didn't like something about a particular comic book movie. Otherwise I'd take Corndog's advice.
marvel72 - 8/2/2011, 12:58 PM
is it really a crime to want something that you love done they way you want.i don't think so.
marvel72 - 8/2/2011, 12:59 PM
the not they. :P
Stumblin - 8/2/2011, 1:39 PM
Haha! I like that I'm the only one you're actually responding to.

In regards to you trying to prove my "fail" you didn't provide any info. What fans is that article speaking of? The article sure doesn't tell you and the sources don't either. Look, the only thing AICN has done was change Rambo IV's title, that's it. They haven't done squat to Rambo V.

Good job at not proving me wrong.

First Class might be a good movie, ain't a good cbm tho, it was ok, but it could have been gold!

THOR, CAP done more right, source always matters!

Not Hollywood bend over crap shoved up ya ass! ; D

P.S. Boo!

YO @ STUB ; P


Man [frick] RAMBO 5... Howz about RAMBO VS PREDATOR!

Hehe!
AC1 - 8/2/2011, 1:58 PM
@LEEE how about Rambo vs Predator vs Alien vs Freddy vs Jason vs Bruce Campbell's Character From Those Sam Raimi Evil Dead Films vs Superman vs Batman... vs Wolverine?

I'd watch that shit... it'd be awful, but I'd still watch it.

But yeah this article seems a bit whiny, considering that this is basically a site deticated to those annoying 'fan boys'... the ones who are too opinionated for their own good, yeah they need to be put in their place, but still, is this article even necessary?
Stumblin - 8/2/2011, 2:03 PM
I can read fine. Still nothing says that it was AICN that changed his mind. You're just assuming. You're so adorable when you're flustered. :D

And hi there Lee! Haven't seen you around in a bit.
Stumblin - 8/2/2011, 2:05 PM
Why are you still ignoring everyone else though? Seems you got a thing for me, I'm going to tell you, it's just puppy love, when you get older one day you may experience true love.
Stumblin - 8/2/2011, 2:14 PM
Whoops! Someone changed their words around, so first it was just AICN that changed his mind, now it's just a general fan community that changed his mind. Still nothing says exactly what changed the idea around, so what was it you were saying again? What was that? I'm sorry? Oh, it's OK, everyone makes mistakes.

Have a pleasant day Powdered Toast Man :)

Screw You! I say give actors and movies a chance in most cases, but sometimes I feel like bitching. And posting pics of who we want to see in role as one of our favorite charactres just means we are passionate about the characters. Do some of us take things too far sure, but hey we are free to say what we want and express our opinions. So deal with it.
ironpool007 - 8/2/2011, 4:43 PM
Lee, it's good to see you calling out bad CBMs. You sir are a true fan.
