I think if people love the source material, and that`s really whey they`re making the movie, then that`s a natural outcome. That the things we all love, and work with the creators of the movie to save the things that were so effective. I think it`s situations where people don`t love the material, they just say, oh that was a big hit, it could be a big hit here. It`s just generalizing. Things got lost if you don`t understand why people like a thing. When you love something, it`s easy to say, `That`s my son, cut out his heart? No, he needs the heart.` It`s harder when you don`t love the thing yourself.
