Brett Ratner Wants to Rip Off The Wizard For a Guitar Hero Movie
There are plenty of reasons not to like Brett Ratner. Everything from his appearance on Entourage to his huge stockpile of incredibly shitty, but bafflingly profitable movies (X-Men 3, all of the Rush Hours) seems to scream, "I'm what makes people hate Hollywood." Well, Brett told MTV that he wants to make a Guitar Hero movie, and his proposed plot is every bit as horrific as you would think.
Here's the direct quote from the MTV article: “It could be about a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and he wins the ‘Guitar Hero’ competition. One of these dreams-[come-true] kind of concepts.”
First of all, there was already a movie kind of like that and it was called The Wizard. It was terrible and kind of awesome at the same time. Plus, who the hell wins a Guitar Hero contest and becomes a rock star? I've seen people win Guitar Hero contests. After each one, the winner would yell, "Woooo! I'm a fucking rock star!" Then drink 11 more beers and puke on some chick's lap. That actually mightbe a better movie.
Hopefully he can take on God of War without screwing it up too badly, but since it is, ultimately, a video game movie, I'm going to expect it to be shitty.
