Five Nights at Freddy's: The Motion Picture? What is your sentiment? 

11 deviants said Love it or hate it, I really hope Hollywood doesn't chew up and burn Scott Cawthon or try to wrestle creative control away from him and twist FNAF into something it's not. He and us, his fans, are the reason I love FNAF so much.
8 deviants said I am wildly enthusiastic about this development and I'm sure the film will be as big a runaway hit as the games!
8 deviants said NO! NO PLEASE GOD NO! NO!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!
6 deviants said That's nice. The let's plays are much more entertaining than Hollywood's muck these days though. No high expectations.
6 deviants said I don't care one way or another.
5 deviants said I'd feel better if Scott Cawthon was directing or writing...

1 deviant said Five Nights at what...?
No deviants said BOO! This is going to be horrible... Just reading the articles it's clear that these people don't have as much time and passion invested in this as we, the fandom does! It's going to be terrible!
No deviants said It's going to be a train wreck that I can't wait to watch while I hold high my gamer cred!

Personal Quote: "Free from prophecy, all we have left before us, are choices."
Hello everyone! I want to talk to you guys about a show called 'The Real Ghostbusters', as an example of how creativity should be left to the creators and not the execs if that creativity is already well-liked.

Some call it, these days, the 'Firefly Effect', when execs don't like something and elect to change it or remove it in spite of success. The reference is to the show 'Firefly, which was taken off the air because one person in an executive position didn't like it.

A TV show developed by ABC and spun off of the hit comedy 'Ghostbusters', it was a major hit...

... for the first season and syndication. The first 70 or so episodes.

By the time its first season aired, responses were overwhelmingly positive. Kids and grown-ups alike enjoyed the show and while sometimes the premise of an episode might be nutty, it always made up for it with exceptional writing and comedy.

There were dark moments, but they were matched by equally heartwarming and passionate moments.

Then one day, nearly at the tale end of the first syndicated season, a consulting firm called Q5 approached ABC with an insidious marketing pitch. They waved their PhDs around, claiming the show (Among others) was doomed if things didn't change. The network execs were skeptical and showed that responses were positive. But Q5 said it wouldn't stay that way.

If you'll look at this OLD article, you'll see that even then, skepticism was high, save for one sucker, ABC's Vice President.

What was the end result?

The Real Ghostbusters and other shows were gutted of their spirit, pun intended.

Q5 had no tangible research to back the claims they were making, which recommended that the character Janine's glasses be changed from stylish and pointy to round because 'Children are afraid of sharp objects.'

And that, friends, was the least ludicrous change made.

I will not build this article on the backs of others, so I would like to point you all to the following features by a terrific reviewer and another product of the 80's like myself, Phelous.……

Now, Devil's advocate, Q5 has helped a lot of products become more suited to consumer need and demand.

But those are consumer goods, not art.

When it came to this, they had Social Engineering in mind, to turn the show into a harmless, inoffensive fluffpiece.

It also broke up the family of voice actors that formed thanks greatly to Lorenzo Music, a scholar and a gentleman who voiced Peter Venkman for the first half of the show and most notably, Garfield.

Art is not a science, even though some science can be an art.

This trend of turning the harsh into hugbox has haunted us all the way up to today...

Bring back the harsh. Bring back the gritty.

Children can frikken handle it.

Because those who are raised on such nonsense as what Q5 perverted Ghostbusters into go out into the world with no idea of how rough it can be.

Remember kiddies... drama comes from conflict, characters require depth and art is not a science.
