I don't care what anybody says I liked "The Hitcher." It had really good performances from Sophia Bush, Zachary Knighton and Sean Bean. I admit the EFX were a bit overkill, but I've seen remakes that much much worse (Dukes of Hazzard, A-Team, The Hulk, etc.).

I liked The Hitcher remake as well.  Although, I do agree the truck scene lost some impact. 

With that said, I say M. Night.  He actually made some interesting movies and then allowed himself to be pigeon holed into his current position.  With Bay, I don't expect anything so I have nothing to lose in watching his films.  M. Night is more something happens with an often times ridiculous twist at the end.  Without his earlier works being like that he wouldn't have continued on that road.  Signs is especially ridiculous.

M. Night Shyamalamalamalamalamalamalamalan may not be perfect, but at least he TRIES (the keyword being TRIES) to make a good film. It doesn't always come out good, but you can at least tell that some effort was put into the production.

Bay on the other hand desecrates beloved 80s franchises in the name of the almighty dollar.

I voted for M. Night because he's more frustrating. With Bay you know what you're gonna get. You see his movie coming and it's easily avoided. Or you can catch the few good seens in his movies on cable. But with Shyamalan you never know what to expect. Will it be a good movie? A terrible movie? Somewhere in between? You get your hopes up and then BLAM! the bad guy is angry plants!

  And really there is no excuse for Signs. Allergic to water indeed.

It's funny, but I'm quite partial to both directors.  Mind you, I can't watch a M. Night movie too often in a certain space of time, as I find them quite disturbing.  I thoroughly enjoy most of Bay's movies except for that horrible travesty Transformers 3.  I was so disappointed by that one.  I loved the first, enjoyed the second, but didn't think much of the third at all.

"Transformers" is just movie junk food. People know they shouldn't eat at MacDonalds. It's bad for your health, but you can't stop eating it. That's what "Transformers" is like. Exploding cars and Meghan Fox are like a McRib combo.

I guess you can say I'm on a strict movie diet? I can't stand junk food films.

Good God! You've gone and coined a term! I like it!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
