"My screenplay was darker, grittier and had a very compelling story with rich characters. What my screenplay didn't have was slow motion at every turn, Dutch tilts, campy dialogue, aliens in KISS boots, and everyone wearing Bob Marley wigs." Writer J.D. Shapiro sort of apologizes for writing the film version of Battlefield Earth . (And, as the story notes, when the Razzies voted it the worst movie of the decade, Shapiro accepted the award in person.) Via coyotegoth.
