A lot of Transformers fans HATE this man Michael Bay, but why, what did he really do to destroy your childhood memories “?
Did he really ruin The Transformers, and would any other director would have done anything different? All he really did was make Transformers a Hollywood movie, and I believe did the best that anyone would have. All the haters out there claim that his movies look nothing like the original series “Generation One ” (as fans have dubbed it since Generation 2 came out in 1993 ). But let me ask all those fans this, name a Big Budget Summer Comic Book movie that stays true to the original version of the books they are based on?
I bet you Can’t can you?
Batman – No ( Just when did the Batmobile look like a tank )
Iron Man – No ( When did Edwin Jarvis turn in to a computer )
I could go on, Spider-Man (Venom what the f&*^, New Goblin, Dr. Octopus )
Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Green Lantern, G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra.
When did Miss Storm have sex with an Mexican to make Susan Storm while her bro is definitely not Mexican??
So why all the hate toward Michael Bay, and not for Jon Favreau, Christopher Nolan, Tim Story, and Sam Raimi ??
Yes The Transformers movies are not perfect, but they are Michael Bay movies, and that is what you get when the producers (including Hasbro ) hire him to do it.
The Robots Don’t look the Same.
DUH !! …..They got reinvented, like in all the other series that came before “The Bay Curse ” – Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise, Armada, Energon, and Cybertron. They needed a new look and probably one of the DEMANDS of Hasbro.
Too many humans……..
Well you see to promote a movie you need a star, and Hollywood Producers care less about story, and more about selling the movie, and hence screen time for a star. Why Shia LaBeouf as the star, ask Steven Spielberg, it was his choice not Bay’s.
Keep in mind, it is mostly the producers that tell, all these directors who to use, who is HOT !!!, who they have contracts with. Case in point, Megan Fox, did Bay want her, I don’t know, but the producers did. Almost all the Summer Movies have some whore actress from Maxim Magazine in them – Transformers, Star Trek, G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra . So again why is Bay blamed for using them?
A lot of people complain that Michael Bay uses only Hot bimbos in his movies, but one comment made by a fan really got on my last nerve. His name is Jon Bailey (Jon3.0), and he called Frances McDormand “an ugly old lady ” ………..F^%$ you, where do you get off, you not so young, let alone talented, you think your “Optimus Prime voice is the shit, well that is all it is “shit ” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMjM59k_KJk&feature=plcp&context=C416293dVDvjVQa1PpcFPiffMbLWVFFZJHY_nuECVJXICBas52h9A=
Any fan should be ecstatic that Frances McDormand, would even do the movie let alone give us a great performance. It did not stop at the idiot, it continued with more fans on the TFwiki Facebook page. Calling both Frances McDormand and Julie White, old ladies. Really REALLY, oh I see you don’t want a young whore, but you also don’t like your women over thirty.
Fans have also said Michael Bay can’t get any A-listers like Tom Hanks , or George Clooney, and all he uses are 3rd rate actors, since when was John Turturro, Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDormand, Julie White, Kevin Dunn , Ken Jeong , Alan Tudyk, and John Malkovich, 3rd rate actors. I love who Bay cast in his movies they are among my favorites and are very intriguing. They are some of the best.
What is so bad with the robots.
Odd – yes . Abstract – yes . Cool-yes.
Do they reflect the characters they are based on, I say yes. Lets take a quick look.
Optimus Prime, he was a long nose truck before Bay – YES. He has even been a monkey, fire truck and a lion. So what is the big deal with this ?I could go on –
Big deal that a Decepticon is a police car, in my opinion it is more realistic.
Alice – Well okay Alice really did suck.
Wheeljack – Are you really going to tell me the one in Prime is any better, and Bay called him Que, the Wheeljack moniker was Hasbro’s idea. I could go on and on but let me sum it up.
Love him or hate him Michael Bay directed the three movies. He will be working on a fourth, is this a good idea, I don’t think so, but it will happen. I hope it is NOT a reboot to make the fans happy.
Everyone says that they want a “real fan ” to direct a movie, but is that really a good idea ??
I have been a fan since 1985, and if I directed it, I would cast Miranda Cosgrove and Haley Ramm in the lead, and make it a Kiss Players story, do fans really want that??
