I swear that just the other day I was thinking about all the old movies that are being remade, and I wondered if anymore Alfred Hitchcock movies (after Psycho and A Perfect Murder - based on Dial M For Murder - both in 1998) would be remade. Now comes news that Michael Bay's company is going to tackle Hitchcock's 1963 thriller The Birds. Hmm. Michael Bay and Alfred Hitchcock are not two people you usually see mentioned in the same sentence, and I truly hope they don't screw this up, by making the birds explode or by giving them stealth capability or lasers in their eyes. The Birds was truly terrifying to me as a kid. I watched it one Sunday afternoon then walked downtown alone and saw about 1000 birds in a tree above me. No other humans around, just me and these birds. Freaky.
