raised a cynical blonde eyebrow when I initially heard that Smallville
creators Al Gough and Miles Millar were leaving the series so they'd have more time to write big Hollywood blockbusters. I'm sure the money for scripting summer tent pole movies is quite impressive, but I can't imagine penning such nonsense is creatively fulfilling. Not that all big budget movies are nonsense, of course. Especially not this summer, when we've had amazing fare like The Dark Knight
, Hellboy II
and iron man
in theaters. However, Gough and Millar didn't write any of those. They wrote The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
. Did they really leave Smallville
so they could hack out third-rate sequels to movies people barely cared about in the first place! Personally I think this was a bad choice for the creators to leave Smallvile!
