Hey guys, Creeper50 here, back to write more blog posts.
I was wondering this since yesterday: Since there are many stories that are great ideas done poorly, I wondered if the opposite ever happened as well. Could a bad idea be done greatly?
I think the answer is yes. If the idea is bad, it sure won't create the best story ever, but it could still be turned into an exceptional story. I'll offer proof.
There is a popular movie called Planet of the Apes. It was a good story, but let's think of how stupid the idea was. "Apes take over the planet." That's the idea. Here's another: "A bunch of dinosaurs in a dinosaur zoo escape and cause destruction."
These are both somewhat stupid ideas, but they are both considered some of the greatest movies ever. Putting this into account, I think ideas that are stupid can still wound up being turned into amazing stories. What do you think? Do you think this is true?
