Though the biggest kick in the balls is that Prometheus curbstomped a planned At the Mountains of Madness adaptation because the premise was deemed too similar.
Probably a mercy. There's what, one good Lovecraft adaption? And it's not even really an adaption, more of an "inspired by".

Still better than nothing.


But the upside of a proper Lovecraft Hollywood flick would be all dem SJWs going butthurt because he was racist.

From Beyond is a good film.

Dagon's got some cringey acting and a flat script but the practical effects are good, it's got a nice spooky atmosphere, the production design is fantastic for a low budget film, and it captures the true spirit of Lovecraft's horror.

Namely that swarthy foreigners are godless freaks and race mixing will bring about the end of human civilization.

From Beyond and Re-Animator aren't the most faithful adaptations (Lovecraft would've had a heart attack over Stuart Gordon shoving so much nudity and sexuality into his work), but they're a lot of fun. The Call of Cthulhu had an extremely low budget, but it's super faithful to Lovecraft's story and has a lofi charm to it. And I've heard that the 2010 adaptation of "The Colour Out of Space" is good.

Fun fact; there's an adaptation of "The Colour Out of Space" called The Curse, and it stars Wil Wheaton. I haven't seen it, but I've heard that it's shit. Another fun fact; Mario Bava, the great Italian horror film director, very nearly did a film adaptation of "The Dunwich Horror" with Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee. Tragically, the studio fired Bava from the production after one of his films flopped in the USA.

Even if that shit was selling (it isn't) I doubt Ooga-Boyega would see one red cent of mercy sales.
he kinda legally has to if it's his face on them
that's why all the Kylo Ren stuff has the mask, they don't have to pay Adam Driver for that
No, not all Kylo Ren figurines and such are mask only. No, they don't pay Adam Driver jack fucking shit for it. It's all one blanket payment and yielding all further rights. Disney is stupid but not that stupid. He's no Harrison Ford. He's some dude that can be happy to have been in a Star Wars movie. Sign or pass.

And to the other thing, he's a nigger that lives in L.A. where two million "net worth" don't last all that long. Sure, if he's smart he moves somewhere else and largely tells everyone to go fuck themselves. But then again: Nigger.

My ranking of this clusterfuck of a "saga":

1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
3. The Return of the Jedi
This is the objective ranking of these movies. It's scientifically proven how ESB is miles ahead of ANH and every way vastly superior to RotJ. It doesn't matter how one ranks the other SW movies below these, they are all shit.

You'd get a much more competitive ranking if you were to rank the video games. Much better overall quality as well.
