2001 A Michael Bay Odyssey

From toplessrobot, Warning: This video is a fan-made video for Stanley Kubrick's 2001, made up to look like a modern sci-fi action film trailer, a la Michael Bay. It is accurately done, and thus genuinely kind of disgusting. The blinding, short-attention span cuts, the techno music, the banal tagline -- the only thing that keeps it from being Bay perfection is the lack of explosions and long, leering shots of a teenage girl's ass, preferably draped over some kind of expensive vehicle. Seriously, if you have any affection for the original movie, you might want to give this a miss. The first time I saw this I threw up in my mouth a little.

That was as good as it could be, I think, yet it was only a partial success. You can feel the original material resisting the Bayification. Kind of a cheat if you have to speed up the film so many times.
