What I meant was that the video that appeared on MTV was the one that Cobain re-did. I, also, checked his videography and the only other music videos that stood out where The Smashing Pumpkins' Bullet With Butterly Wings and Blind Melon's No Rain (a.k.a. the bee girl video).

That doesn't necessarily means he has no talent. Maybe Cobain was a diva.

Time to finish off Platinum Dunes week with a massively boring remake of one of the greatest horror movies ever. Even though, it's not Platinum Dunes worst, it's the most infuriating because ANOES is the best movie they've ever fumbled.
 
The good:
 
Jackie Earle Haley: Haley is great as Freddy. Too bad about the rest of the movie.
 
Rooney Mara: The future Oscar nominee is good as Nancy.
 
The bad:
 
Kyle Gallner: He's pretty bad here. The fact that he survives the movie is infuriating.
 
The make-up: While it's not as bad as the make-up in Freddy's Dead, the make-up here is dismal. Apparantly, they wanted Freddy to look like an actual burn victim, but it just looks silly. It's acceptable to break from reality sometimes.
 
The script: The writing is very sloopy and the ending doesn't make any damn sense.
 
The ugly:
 
Samuel Bayer: Fun fact: Bayer directed Nirvana's seminal Smells Like Teen Spirit video. Other fun fact: Kurt Cobain hated the original video and re-did parts of it without him. So, he never had any talent to begin with. This explains this movie's poor direction.
 
Katie Cassidy: Katie Cassidy is one of the worst actresses currently working today. One of my former classmates was a stable-girl for Katie's dad, David. I told her to tell him that she can't act! Yes really.
 
I'm finally done with Michael Bay's desecrations of horror classics! Grade: C-
 
Next-up: Alvin And The Chipmunks 3!

I guess you could call that sequence "The Incredible Sulk"?!?

It has "Nightmare On Elm Street" in the title. In the eyes of horror movie lovers, the actual quality doesn't matter so long as those words are in the title.

Considering their tastes are the exact opposite of the public, NO!

However, I do think this should at least be nominated for Worst Prequel, Sequel, Remake, or Rip-Off.

"The worst remake ever"??  That is some achievement, considering the thousand-mile-long list of bad remakes that have been made since remakes first came to be!

Oh yes, because being off by one letter really makes my point less effective. As long as he understands what I'm saying, who cares?

Fair enough. Spinal*
Wow, you took that surprisingly well. It seems any time MWG remains cool, Miguel loses his, and vica-versa.

I wish they didn't remake classics,but if there's going to be a remake of GONE WITH THE WIND no matter what,I'd rather they blend the first 3 hours into 1 hour or less,since the 4th hour it's the good one.

I think the "Golden Gate" ending to The Birds would be depressing, actually. I liked the theatrical ending more, because it's less bleak.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Given that the entire movie of THE BIRDS is arguably an apocalyptic vision of nature turning against man, the so-called "Golden Gate" ending would have been more in keeping with Hitchcock's original intent. MWG's argument sounds an awful lot like what Ol' Alfred must've heard from execs at Universal Studios when he first proposed this ending.

The ending they used ruined the whole movie!

You know why The Happening was a lot like The Birds? Because it was inspired by The Birds. The structure is the same: Event happens. Characters try to survive. No known explanation of the event. But then again, I don't see what that has to do with what I was saying.
So what you're saying is that every single disaster movie ever made is based on "The Birds". Because in all disaster movies, something happens and then characters try to survive. Other then that ingenius plot summary of yours (gotta love how he tries to compare M. Night movies with actual good movies), "Happening" has not a damn thing in common with "The Birds".

Since Hitchcock is his favorite director,a lot of Night's movies either have a similar plot or similar elements.There's also a lot of THE BIRDS in SIGNS:No explanations;people locked in their own attic/basements...

Yes, it does. MNS stated that was the main inspiration of the film and it's clearly there. If you think you're more correct than a director's vision of a film, then more power to you. The films end on exactly the same note as well as having a ridiculous premise around nature attacking back at humans. Both hinge on the fact that there is no explanation to the events. If you can't see that, then I'm not going to say anything. Even critics noted the similarities, along with people who have seen the film. Lastly, let's not get off topic, shall we?
