Michael Bay preps Rosemary’s Baby remake

Seriously, Bay, fuck you. Just fuck you. Fuck your desecration of the classics. Fuck your Platinum Dunes “re-imaginings”. Fuck your shit-eating grin. But, most of all, fuck you.

Seriously, who gives a fuck if anyone remakes anything? Like Stephen King says, "you can't ruin the original, it's still right there on the shelf." It can really only make the first version look better anyway if the remake blows.

Yes, but now I am going to have to say "I love Rosemary's Bay, the original one." I am going to have to put (1968) in every time I write the original's title. I am going to thePolanski version by name years to come and have people stare at me in confusion: How can I possibly like this 2009 film which climaxed with Jessica Alba battling a CGI baby-creature and triumphing over the forces of evil? I have to clarify I am talking about the original. I am going to have to read countless IMDb message board users saying how much better this new version is, how remakes are like "fixing an old car," while Michael Bay grins.

Say what you want about the "Suspiria" remake, just the thought that it probably won't be successful and that it won't be produced by Michael Bay is a delight.

Now don't shout...but I actually thought the 2 Texas Chainsaw Massacre films he rolled out were pretty damn good! Rosemary's Baby on the other hand...I'm not so sure...even if I am already seeing Charlize Theron in the pic, ala The Devil's Advocate.

Believe me, there are worse directors / producers around than Bay...and at least Chainsaw didn't have car chases in it. lol

Wasn't The Astronaut's Wife already a remake of Rosemary's Baby?

I thought the 2003 remake of TCM was pretty terrible (better than the sequels, but that's not saying much).

Do you have a stutter Marcus, or are you just an idiot?

An idiot. I had to enter the message three times because it kept directing me to a "cannot find this page" entry, and I don't have the power to erase them.

Do you have something stuck up your ass, rebel_scum, or are you just a jerk?

Wow, I seriously cannot believe this. One of the greatest excercises in tension and suspense put on celluloid. This is outright blasphemy. What is this world coming to?

I'm a jerk. Sorry for the confusion. No offence intended to old Marcus there. Where's the smilies when you need them...

By the way Michael, my EP-30 works a treat...Ho, ho!!
