After he’s done with the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles movie, what should Michael Bay blow up next?Love him or hate him, you have to admit Michael Bay knows how to feature military hardware, do things in a grand fashion and blow things up real good. What immediately comes to my mind thinking of these things is my favorite movie genre: giant (insert creature) on the rampage!
Let's face it, for everything I mentioned above that Bay does well, his movies are usually not known for their character development or well woven plots. I call this Exhibit B in my case as this style of movie would allow him to further play to his strengths, or weaknesses as the case may be.
I'm not saying I want any of the below films remade necessarily. There's plenty of things you can do to differentiate yourself and make your movie original. Hollywood should be doing more original movies "in the spirit of" instead of remaking, rebooting or otherwise trying to cash in on name recognition.
