Oh, Hooray

Michael Bay wants to remake The Birds. Personally, I don't see the point. The Birds already has a perfectly good remake in the form of Night of the Living Dead.

Actually, for all Michael Bay's reputation as a talentless hack, he did direct one of the greatest films of all time. In fact he's arguably a master of the under-one-minute short film. I wonder if he could be persuaded to make his Birds remake 30 seconds long?

3XHAR said...

If only 'Pearl Harbor' could have been 30 seconds long. I saw this movie in the theater with my friends Thaa Rev and Deej. [spoiler alert] At the end of this long, long movie, when one of protagonists had been shot and was dying (tied to a piece of wood with his arms out, like he was on a cross... get it?) Deej leaned over to me and stage whispered, '3XHAR, I can't feel my ass.' Just then the dying protagonist stated, 'Blake/Johnny/Dirk, I can't feel my legs...' I started laughing, pitching forwards and backwards in my seat. The moviegoers around us were annoyed... Which is sad because it meant they must have at least had a passing interest in that colonoscopy without anesthesia on film called 'Pearl Harbor'.
