I feel you. Personally, I learned back in the mid-'90s, early '00s that just because something resonates with me, doesn't mean it belongs to me and that sometimes people in charge of properties I enjoy will make decisions that I don't like. I think the three biggest examples that I can think of are The Star Wars Prequels, Tri-Star Godzilla, and The Matrix Sequels. When I came to realize though that if someone makes something I don't like, it doesn't take away from what I do like, and it doesn't mean something is ruined for me forever.

Case in point? Tri-Star Godzilla didn't ruin '54 Gojira and when Godzilla 2000 came out, I was able to enjoy it just fine. That said though, after Tri-Star, there was a sense of relief in watching Godzilla 2000.
