Bay wrote TF2?

02.12.2008
Director/destructor Michael Bay has no patience for that strike bullshit, because he already has a release date slotted for TRANSFORMERS 2 and he needs to get going and start blowing things up like right now dammit.

So rather than wait for actual WGA writers to slap together something slightly resembling a screenplay for another movie about giant vehicle-robots and idiotic humans, he went ahead and started one himself. "I've been writing TRANSFORMERS 2," Bay admitted, possibly while driving 170 MPH and/or receiving a humjob from his next female lead. "We've got our characters all designed. I always write all my scripts, my movies anyway so at least I've got something to give the writers. It's like a template. We have a really good outline so I worked on that. We had to because I want to make my date. I'm not going to let the strike take me down." Then his Ferrari transformed into a flying erect penis and ejaculated a salvo of high-yield swarmer missiles that blew up half of Westwood in a gigantic fiery blast, f*ckin' awesome, man (speculation mine).

Bay also promises "more interesting characters", which I assume means that the sequel will have... characters. Shia LeBeouf is expected to return, and let's hope that (credited) TRANSFORMERS writers Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci will quickly recover from the strike to concatenate Bay's ideas for robotic devastation. The movie is due June 26, 2009.

(Disclaimer: all sarcasm aside, I am actually a huge fan of Michael Bay and his bottomless enthusiasm for collateral damage, gunfights and hot chicks.)
Extra Tidbit: Yes, that is a picture of a robot who transforms into a shoe.

Alright, you seem to not be getting the point (nor will you ever). I do not assume that anyone and everyone with the slightest appreciation for Bay's films considers the films masterpieces. It was a figure of fuckin speech. and what is with this "making shit up" deal? can you please tell me exactly what you've been accusing me of making up? You've been repeating that bullshit over and over for the past 5 posts, and i still have no fucking clue as to what your talking about.

I will comment on

I will comment on any piece of news posted on this site that I would like to comment on. Today, im just in the mood for Bay related pieces (this is mostly your doing).



"Like you said, to each his own right? Well why cant you offer Bay the same courtesy you're asking for?"

I will offer bay some courtesy when he makes a good film. And what courtesy are you asking me to give him: I deserve an opinion, therefore bay deserves to make bad films? Ok, i'll give him that. right, right, "to each his own."

We're done.

I am not confused or flabbergasted as to why anyone would think of Bay's films as less than a masterpiece; I am however flabbergasted that somebody would crawl every single piece of Bay related news and waste his or her time hating on the man. What is even more confusing is why they would use snide remarks that have little to do with fact and more to do with a kind of "its cool to hate whats cool" mentality.

Bay's films are not masterpieces in your book, fine, others would say they are

Bay's films are not masterpieces in your book, fine, others would say they are action masterpieces, or blowing upery masterpieces, whatever, not the point. I dont like WWE movies but you dont see me crawling every thread making shit up just for the sake of hating on them.

Like you said, to each his own right? Well why cant you offer Bay the same courtesy you're asking for?

Rukas, im sorry you dont agree or understand my sensibility towards anyone who would defend bay. Half of my rant was towards you, and the other, towards bay fans in general. I would say, anyone who doesnt understand the motives of one hating on bay, is either blind and/or deaf, or a bay fanboy. Or are you honestly utterly confused, flabbergasted, as to why anyone would think of bay's films as less than a masterpiece? I have no bullshit (made up) reasons for hating on bay's films. I have

Or are you honestly utterly confused, flabbergasted, as to why anyone would think of bay's films as less than a masterpiece? I have no bullshit (made up) reasons for hating on bay's films. I have thoroughly gone through my reasons for doing so. if anyone is bullshitting anyone here, its gotta be you.

"Transformers was cool, but I liked it simply because it was cool, not because it had any real substance, it reminded me of being a kid."

Well, i guess that where we disagree. I like to have reasons to back up why I think something is cool. Particularly GOOD reasons.

But hey, that's all up to you. What you think is cool, is none of my business. And dare I say, yet again: to each his own. (WHEN WILL YOU GET THAT!?!)

afulinara I never defended Bay or his movies, I just said that hating on anybody for made up reasons is bullshit and I stand by that. Your quote about big explosions, blah blah, I never said that, nor do i believe it.

jmar, Im neither a Transformers fan boy nor a Bay fan at all, I liked Bad Boys and The Island, thats about it. Transformers was cool, but I liked it simply because it was cool, not because it had any real substance, it reminded me of being a kid. I dont however think it was a

I find it funny how you automatically think Im a fanboy even though I didnt defend his films or the man, I simply pointed out your mistakes and the ignorance in your posts, nothing more nothing less, I dont see how that classifies me as a fanboy but meh, if that makes you feel better... *shrugs*

Doubt I'll notice a difference

The movie will suck no matter how much he has a hand in writing, with or without "real" writers 'cause he'll do what he wants with it.

It seems as though some of you didnt read the whole article or didnt pick up on certain things... It says he has written all of his scripts, but he uses them as templates and gives them to his writers so they can go through with their professional eyes and make them bad ass!

As i said already, Bay Owns! I have loved every flick he has put out.. that doesnt make me brain dead, it just means sometimes i like to see bad ass action flicks!

But the one area of Bay's flicks that ALWAYS impress

But the one area of Bay's flicks that ALWAYS impress and make the stories and the visuals better... The Score! No matter who has worked with Bay on creating these scores, every one of his films has had the best film scores. (I own all of them(The film Scores, and the moves themselves).

My fav score is Armageddon, followed VERY closely, possibly even tied with, Transformers.

Rukas

It's funny your defense of his "design" of characters was the robots. If he calls those "characters," than that's really just laughable. I think what he was referring to was the [link] 60 other pointless people, which don't really need "design" because theyre the same basic stock characters we've been seeing for decades now. Obviously you're a Bay or Transformers fanboy though so I wouldn't expect you to understand, have fun watching big shiny things **** each other and explode though.

Re: Rukas

I wasnt "lying" at all. I merely asked if there were actually writing involved in the making of bay's movies. Yes, I am aware that films are based off of scripts, but since you can't take a joke, let me lay it all out for you. much like how you were implying that I had no life ("Get a life!"), when I asked if his film involved writing, I was simply implying that bay's films usually showcase BAD writing, through sarcasm. get it now? or must I demonstrate by blowing the whole of his

I just love how everyone who defends his films use the excuse, "if you go into a bay film, dont expect a great movie, expect mindless action and big explosions."

I guess that says a lot about bay fans, and I guess that says a lot about why im bashing his films? i have nothing personal against you bay fans. i just dont like the kind of movies you like. i like great films, i like (good) writing, i like (good) acting, i like (...) characters.

Well, to each his own (gee how tired i am of that phrase, yet no one seems to get the meaning of it). opinions people, opinions.

While I don't doubt that Bay has been working on the story for TF2 given the strike, I'm a bit skeptical when he says he writes ALL his movies, mainly because the man's ego is beyond huge, and a lot of directors THINK they're writers, when actually they don't know much about it. Still, it's good to see that he's been working on it and he hasn't been sitting around.

That aside, I think Michael Bay knows how to blow my nuts off with his movies, so bring the noise, bring the TF2, BRING THE BAY!

Bay is OK

I like all Bay movies no matter what, but I am not so blind as to say that they are all great examples of good film making but at least they are entertaining and enjoyable. When does Bad Boys 3 come out? And who the hell thinks there wasnt gonna be a sequel to Transformers is crazy, its franchise material if I have evr seen one

BahWeep... you are some kind of Awesome. And I would know.

I don't always like Bay, but bashing Bay at this point is like saying Tom Cruise is crazy. It's been overdone and it's for those who can't think of something better to say. Why are people like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie considered famous? Because too many people just can't walk away.

If you really hate the Bay, just walk away. Bash and you're really just harboring a secret chubbie for the guy.

If you go to a Michael Bay film, you should not expect a great movie. His movies are about blowing stuff up. I always go into his movies expecting that and always leave happy. People think to much with his movies.

The first Transformers was a fun, summer movie, and I will see the sequel.

transformers... retire

Maybe Rukas was the humjobber...

The Bay-bashing does have a lot of credibility, which is more than can be said of Bay's popcorn movies; they're all predictable and noisy junk food cinema.

Still, there's enough superficial fans out there who cream their pants whenever something blows up on-screen in a Michael Bay flick (which is pretty often) to justify another mindless Tranny flick.

Eh, Rukas seems to have become a little too worked up over the comments, but I can at least see where he/she's coming from. There's been some pretty consistent Michael Bay bashing on this site, and it's getting old.

I mean, The Island recently showed that Michael Bay can actually a helm a film with a nice balance of action and an engaging story. The first half of that film had a very nice sort-of claustrophobic feel to it before branching out and picking up the pace. Not to mention the fact

The first half of that film had a very nice sort-of claustrophobic feel to it before branching out and picking up the pace. Not to mention the fact that you had McGregor classing up the place.

This isn't to say that his other films are rubbish (they aren't, with the exception of Pearl Harbor), but this was clearly a different Michael Bay.

At any rate, I'm pretty annoyed with how often I see people taking jabs at the recent Transformers live-action film since I'm not sure what the Hell they expected going in. I mean, were they expecting Oscar fare from a movie about giant robots that transform and fight each other?

I loved the 80's show, but even I can admit how hard a live action version of that show must have been to adapt to the big-screen without looking absolutely ridiculous. Bay crafted an extremely entertaining film that was both funny and gripping with its action set-pieces. Not only that, but the design of the actual autobots and decepticons was pretty fantastic--no shoddy CGI to be found here.

Unless you're a purist wanking it to the old cartoon right now, I don't see how you can be disappointed with the look of the film.

Either way, it just seems like it's a lose/lose situation for Bay. Even if he listened to every moron that takes a stab at him and catered to them, they'd still find something to bitch and moan about.

Oh well, I guess it's cool to poke fun at Bay for sticking to what he knows while praising a director like Apatow for doing the exact same thing. Surely you'll never find a terrible performance from any of his leads...

I won't even mention Judd Apatow's producer credits since, you know, he attaches himself to such diverse projects. Then there's, of course, Burton who also seems to stick with what he knows.

Ah, the sweet smell of double standards in the morning.

Michael Bay OWNS! Dude has not made a flick yet that i havnt flat out fuckin LOVED! Armageddon ranks as one of my all time favs... dude just owns! He takes alot of flak for his movies.. but i mean, if you like action, there is no one better than the Bay!

You three before me are fucking assholes. Seriously, how much jealous hate can you give a man?

jmar: Character designs are a first? Woah, I guess the robots in the first film were designless blobs of white walking around then right? WRONG! They had designs, so drop your "thats a first" bullshit.

vini: Grow the fuck up, if you seriously think that every scene in Transformers lasted only two seconds you need to lay off of the meth and speed my friend!

afulinara: Yes, all movies are based

Seriously, if you're going to attack a film or an individual at LEAST have something credible to say without resorting to flat out lies to help boost your beddroom confound egos.

In other words, GET A LIFE!

Try watching Transformers again and see if you can spot a scene that lasts 2 seconds before cutting to another.
