UPDATE: Oh criminy. I misread the date on the linked article; it's actually from last year, so the movie I'm talking about is probably the same one from Emmerlich. I suppose it doesn't matter much, the meat of this article remains unchanged. 2012. Feh.
Sometimes, I almost hope the world will end in 2012. Or earlier. It'll save me from finding out things like Michael Bay is going to make a movie based on the 2012 nonsense. This is on top of Roland Emmerich's efforts.
Bay was the force behind that brain trust of a movie, Armageddon, what I regard as the worst film ever made. It has precisely one accurate thing in the entire movie: it's about asteroids, and asteroids do exist. Other than that, scientifically, it makes Saturday morning cartoons look like Nobel-winning research.
So this movie will be bad. No, scratch that. To be more accurate, I can confidently predict it will suck harder than the supermassive black hole in the core of M87. I base this on long experience of suffering through Bay's movies.
Of course, there's a chance he'll surprise me. But remember: this movie will be based on the 2012 garbage. So there's not even an asteroid in it to give it one toe dipped into reality.
