Well, people keep talking about there being a "Grand Thief Auto" movie, but thankfully, that hasn't happened yet. That kinda breaks the anything bad rule. However, people keep on talking about a "Halo" movie, but that hasn't happened yet. So there's the anything good rule in effect!

Your review pretty much hit the nail on the head. But please do not mention possible sequels, because once you do, the studios will go ahead and do it ... with the same director from this first movie!

This very lame re-make was done by a director that obviously has no passion for or love of the horror genre. Wes Craven at least brought the somber mood necessary. With the scraping claws on the wall, the dripping water, the whole ominous imagery of a dream, he built REAL tension. In re-makes, they get a bunch of perfect-looking Abercrombie models to run around and get killed in their sleep. We are not vested in the characters because most people aren't surrounded by 50 people that look like GQ cover models, devoid of any acting skills or abilities. 

Hopefully if, God-forbid, they make another one, they will get a different director to direct.

I guess Michael Bay must be the George W. Bush of directing, if Uwe Boll is the Paris Hilton!!

Yeah -- so? In the past, not even Stallone or Madonna have won career awards, and they have won more Razzies than anyone. Razzies standards are different than most award shows; it really does come down to who the 700 voting members hate the most that year...

1)He "won" Worst Director for 3 titles that same year.
2)All of his movies have an RT score between 1 and 11%. And his overall score is 0%.

Uwe Boll had serveral nods, and no "wins" yet when he was voted his Worst Career award.

"Extreme bias"!? Come on now, man. If instead of saying "Anything made by Michael Bay", he said "Anything with "Twilight Saga" in the title" as a warning sign, you would be singing his praises from on top of the highest mountain that you could climb! Stop trying to con us that we should only hate certain bad movies and not all of them.

No, I'm saying he should be banned from the internet for showing an extreme bias.
Actually, Uwe Boll is the Paris Hilton of producing/directing (or is it Seltzerberg?).
As far as I know, we're not giving out a Worst Career Achievement award this year.

If we count movies he has produced,6 are bad and 1 is average.Not to mention his score at R.T. is 7/100.I supposse he qualifies then.

However,if by "Razzie count" you mean his noms.,he doesn't.Out of the 16 movies he's made(I don't count his small gig in INDICENT PROPOSAL),only 6 has been nominated,of which 1 wasn't a nom. for him("Worst Supportin'Actor" for Jon Voight in TRANSFORMERS).He has only won 2.

No, by Razzie count, it's 1 and 1/2 good, everything else he touches or breaths on, BAD.

True that. 15 years in the business and Bay has only maybe one-and-a-half "good" movies to show for it!

It sounds like Michael Bay could win the next Worst Career Achievement Award by a landslide!
