David Goyer is Not Fucking Around.

Posted by Peter Hall - October 19th 2008 @ 11:20 am

Directed by David Goyer, the idea man behind DARK CITY, BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT, featuring Gary Oldman, an Auschwitz ghost possession and a guy in a patient smock doing the always effective upside down body crawl.  Does THE UNBORN look great or what?

    ha. actually, Peter, i think it looks like a giant steaming turd.

    seriously. those things you just mentioned about it are great. but lets look at everything else. J-horror rip-off premise? a terrible lead actress? lame spooky child jump scares? oh, and let’s not forget Goyer was also the man behind that AWFUL Invisible remake. AND he directed the third (and shittiest) Blade movie.

    i give almost ZERO credit to him for Dark City and the Batman reboot. those motherfuckers were all Proyas and Nolan.

    mark my words, Unborn is going to suck balls.

    I give ya’ partial credence on a few of those points, but I think Goyer is going to land on the awesome-not-idiotic side of his coin this time around.

    we shall see, Peter. we shall see.

    i hope you’re right, though. because i’m definitely going to see it. i mean, anytime you got somebody crawling around, lookin’ like some kind of Rob Bottin gag, i’m sold. no matter how shitty the rest of the film appears to be.

    It seems like it’s got way too much crammed into it, even though it all looks awesome.

    I’ll still see it though.

    Um no… it doesn’t look that great.

    You people are crazy, this looks like a straight ’90s studio attempt to make a horror movie a blockbuster, what with all the big event pieces THE UNBORN looks to have packed in. Am I the only one with fond memories of HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE FACULTY?
