Because the flipping STORY is good.
It’s not the usual nonsense involving vampires, aliens, robots or aliens that transform into robots. No. This is different. This is worthy. I don’t recognize a single actor in this sucker, and it doesn’t matter one itty bitty bit, because I WILL SEE THIS.

Give me something interesting and different. I don’t care how much the movie cost. I don’t care that there isn’t amazing special effects, not when the average TV show can afford some CGI wizardry. That stuff doesn’t impress me.
An original idea, a good story, with characters we might possibly care about? Yes. Give me more of that.
