Michael Bay says shut up, Transformers 3's 3D looks just fine

11.29.2010

It's no surprise that the studio forced Michael Bay to change his tune on 3D to make the next installment in the hugely profitable TRANSFORMERS series to be a 20-30% more hugely profitable, but a recent report from IESB said the process has been painful and the effects "looks like shit."

Well enter Michael Bay to clean house on internet rumors, coming to the defense of the format he used to loathe.

"Wow, I read these morons on the internet who think they are in the know. “We have have problems with our 3D????” Really? Come into my edit room and I will show you beautiful 3D. There has never been a live action show that has pushed the boundaries of 3D like Transformers 3. We shot the entire movie with 3D cameras. I actually loved shooting in 3D. I will give full details of my process and why I liked 3D in the next week right before the Transformers announcement piece comes out on Tron and Narnia…"

To which he follows with:

"And don't watch this movie in 2D, we made it for 3D."

Sure, give me a 30% ticket price discount, and I'll do just that.

Simply put, I have not seen a good live action 3D movie since AVATAR, and that has caused me to boycott the format entirely. That is until I went to see JACKASS 3D and my theater didn't even have a 3D OPTION thus turning the $7 student price I was planning to pay into $14 to force me to watch Chris Pontius' dick wave around in 3D.

As for TRANSFORMERS? If any style of movie was made for that format, it's blockbuster action movies like this, but these it's hard to keep track of the action in these movies in two dimensions, and I assume a third one will probably cause some people to pass out from exhaustion trying to process it all.

well... He might not like it, but, since he has no choice, at least, he tries to do it the best way possible: by SHOOTING it in 3D!
I don't hate nor love the guy, but his movies are most of the time good dumb-fun to watch...
What worries me is that 3D and his parkinsonian camera work might not mix well... Get ready for motion sickness, I'm affraid...

I'm starting to wonder if people understand the difference between filming with 3D cameras and a post conversion to 3D. Tassi, you haven't seen a good 3D film since Avatar because they all have been post conversions. Of course there is the exception, which is Resident Evil. And RE's 3D was awesome (with the help of IMAX)! My guess is, you didn't see it like a lot of others here, which is fine b/c it was just a popcorn flick, but don't judge real 3D based on these post conversion movies.

Real 3d is just as stupid. Avatar was fine, but nothing mind blowing. You are just blinded by "new" tech, and pretty colors. RE was stupid btw.

Paul... how many live action 3D movies that were actually shot in 3D and NOT done in post have you even seen since Avatar?

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you... "morons on the internet" are his entire fan base.

Trouble is, I was one of those morons. The first two Transformer films got my money but I guarantee that this sequel won't be seeing any revenue from me. I've had enough of jittery robot BS strung together with bad dialogue and the dumbest plots possible. 3D or 2D.

No. Not at all. Film buffs on the internet that frequent sites like this and comment negatively about his 3D are an amazingly small community. If they weren't, movies like Scott Pilgrim would be like the biggest successes of the year and Twilight films would be huge flops. Clearly, that's not the case.

Look, I know everyone here loves to hate Michael Bay. Me, I love the guy. He's a phenomenal director. I adore The Rock and Bad Boys (2), The Island is also great. Armageddon and Pear Harbor(Completely misunderstood by most) were alright. In fact, the only movies of his I don't really care for a whole lot are the Transformers but even those are worth watching once.

The guy uses real sets, real locations, real practical effects. I read once that he considers himself an old school filmmaker

In fact, the only movies of his I don't really care for a whole lot are the Transformers but even those are worth watching once.

The guy uses real sets, real locations, real practical effects. I read once that he considers himself an old school filmmaker and I agree. How easy would it have been for any hack filmmaker to cgi every little detail in Transformers. Cgi cars, Cgi sets, Cgi effects etc. Imagine Transformers as directed by Lucas or Snyder or any other major director (With a few notable exceptions like Nolan and stuff). He only used CGI in Transformers when it was absolutely necessary. If Optimus punches a wall, sure Optimus is CGI, but the wall breaking is practical. Seriously, the amount of coordination, logistics, planning etc. involved in what he does is so astronomical that you guys must be deluded to think you could what he does. Seriously, Megan Fox can call him Hitler all she wants but when you have that much stuff on your plate, you're going to want things done right. Can you imagine Fox fucking up a line in the middle of an action sequence and having to reset everything and spending thousands of dollars just to reshoot. There's a reason that people like Nolan [link] and Edgar Wright (See Hot Fuzz) are such huge fans of the guy. Because they know he works his ass off. In my opinion, the worst thing a filmmaker can be is lazy. Michael Bay is not. This is a man that takes pride in finishing his films on time and on budget. Can the same be said of someone like Cameron?

Look, I'm not saying he's the greatest director of all time. His movies are always about 20 minutes too long plus he has a very cheesy sense of humor (People getting drugged accidentally isn't so funny that you had to put it in both BB2 and TF2).

I don't like that he's changed his mind about 3D but I guess he can't really say he hates shooting in 3D. I mean, I doubt he had much say over how the film was shot and now has to say that he likes it. Too bad. As far as The Trainman's comments, yeah and the studio would have told Nolan to fuck off. Perhaps Nolan talked them into not doing it in 3D, but if the studio was absolutely adamant about a 3D Batman film, we'd either have a Nolan directed 3D Batman, or we'd have a non-nolan Batman 3D. Either way, we'd have a 3D Batman because guess what, they're paying for the movie and they can tell him to do whatever they want. It sucks, but that's how it works. If you don't believe me, think of Raimi. Guy makes a hugely profitable and well liked film in SM2, but the studio was still able to force him to add Venom. Raimi protested but guess what, a director is replaceable, the people paying for the film are not. I don't agree with it, but studios have final say.

I guess Bay will just have to stand next to Brett Ratner. Everyone always shits on Ratner, but then ask if they like his movies. I've never met someone who didn't like Rush Hour. Ask someone about Red Dragon and After the Sunset, they'll probably say that they're pretty good movies. Yet if you ask someone online, they'll say he's the worst thing since the plague. I don't get this bizarre hatred for these people. You can tell that these guys LOVE movies and love making movies and love their fans. I certainly can't say the same for George Lucas or Uwe Boll. Those guys hate their fans and show only greed as the reason for their decisions. Michael Bay is an entirely different league. (I'm talking about modern Lucas, not 70's 80's Lucas so I don't need to hear about him being responsible for classic films.)

So yeah, I like Bay. You guys can have Avatar, but I'd much rather watch The Rock to get my action movie buzz. Because at the end of the day, if I want to see shit blow up, I want to see real stuff blow up, not CGI.

I didnt read your entire post, it was too long, so Im just gonna comment on what I read.

Working with real sets, on real locations and blah blah blah doesnt make him a good storyteller. Sure the guy works hard, but he only cares about his effects, doesnt care about story, characters, etc ... For me, thats a bad director. Just because you have skills, doesnt mean you know how to use them. And when you have skills, you dont have to cut your films the way he does.

And about Pearl Harbor and

And about Pearl Harbor and Armageddon being misunderstood ... just give me a break. "Misunderstood" is the word fans use when they love a bad movie. Just because you like something, it doesnt mean its more than what it is. I like 2012, it entertained me but I still know it was crap and I'll never say that film was misunderstood cause I like it. Cause I know what it is, and I dont pretend its something else.

I have to say that I'm surprised. I was pretty sure everybody would be against me on this one.

Thanks Mut and threezy

Carne Diablo- I agree, The Rock is so much fun. Amazing film.

Skellington- That's cool. At least you admitted you didn't read it all. I do disagree though. I think he's a great storyteller. There's a lot of tension and suspense all the way through The Rock. As far as caring about the characters, I don't know about you, but Ed Harris' story in The Rock is amazing. I

As far as caring about the characters, I don't know about you, but Ed Harris' story in The Rock is amazing. I definitely cared for his cause and felt for him throughout the film. That, on top of caring about whether Connery would get to see his daughter after such a shit life and Cage getting his wife to safety. Plus you have Michael Biehn's amazing speech and that whole showdown. I was on the edge of my seat. And that's only The Rock. I could say similar things about the underrated The Island(Ewan's existential crisis, the morality of cloning etc).

About the misunderstood comment. I know I wrote that weird but I meant only Pearl Harbor. Your feelings on 2012 are how I feel about Armageddon but I was talking about how a lot of people complain about Pearl Harbor (the love triangle and stuff) without knowing that the movie is a throwback to the war movies of the 40's. I recommend watching the extras on the dvd. I still don't love the film, but it did make me see it in a different light and appreciate it more.

Man, I usually agree with what I read from you 100% of time, but, yeah, I'll give you The Rock, and, well, of course you're entitled to enjoy the movies you enjoy, who am I to diss your preference? But real practical effects from Michael Bay? Maybe early is his career, but most of the bombing of Pearl Harbor was an impressive demo reel for ILM as was the car chase in Bad Boys 2.

I agree completely. I enjoy Michael Bay's films very much and think a lot of his work is very underrated. Transformers, while not as terrible as a lot of people say, has given him a bad rep. He has simply become a target. Once a few people become vocal about their opinions on something, others join in and more and more jump on the bandwagon and pretty soon it becomes the popular thing to do when it isn't even necessarily merited.

Also, pay no attention whatsoever to Skellington. He has the attention span of a gnat and everything (and I do mean "everything") goes over his head. He sees the surface of things and nothing more. I am beyond burnt out on pseudo-intellectuals like him who are so intoxicated by their bloated egos and sense of self importance. When someone mentions a film's depth and discusses the various themes, perhaps metaphors and symbolism it used, etc, etc..he ALWAYS says that one is reading too much into it and that it isn't there. It's laughable and ludicrous.

Fury159- I'm glad you're giving me The Rock :). To be fair about the two scenes you mentioned, the cgi use in those scenes is entirely due to safety and practicality rather than laziness. You can't have explosions going off that close to actors without running into a serious risk of people getting badly hurt so I'm sure cgi was used there.

You can't have explosions going off that close to actors without running into a serious risk of people getting badly hurt so I'm sure cgi was used there. As for the bad boys 2 freeway chase sequence, I tried looking online for a behind the scenes type video but couldn't find one but I'm sure I saw one that showed that a lot of it was done practically. Cars were really tossed off at high speeds (he used the same idea in The Island chase sequence) but I'm pretty sure many parts were touched up with cgi (you can't really toss a car over Will Smith at high speeds and just hope he doesn't die :) )
But do you agree that he does try harder than most to avoid cgi whenever possible? I think that's commendable.

Out of curiosity, have you seen The Island? I've noticed that a lot of people believe The Rock to be his best because although it's an action movie, there's a lot of heart and you're sort of conflicted as to whether you even hate the bad guy. It's got layered characters which you don't get much of in action flicks. In that same sense, The Island is probably his second best film "technically". Although I prefer the pure cheesy balls to the wall action of the Bad Boys films, The Island is probably his most intelligent film. If you haven't seen it, you might like it.

I just read all of your post, and all the comments, and I slightly agree and disagree. But first, my thoughts on Bay's films- the first "Bad Boys" film is fun. "The Rock" is excellent. "Armaggeddon" is fun in spurts, but is way too long, and suffers by his awkward comedy. "Pearl Harbor" is one of two films I walked out on- for this day and age, it's hokiness doesn't work, and it's WAY too long.

"Pearl Harbor" is one of two films I walked out on- for this day and age, it's hokiness doesn't work, and it's WAY too long. "The Island" is his best film, lots of fun, and surprisingly interesting politics dynamics, and his crazy style is toned down a bit. "Bad Boys 2" wasn't awful, but wasnn't good. "Transformers" was bad- Anthony Anderson's character is one of the worst side character since Jar-Jar Binks, and it's way too edited. "TF2" is one of worst things I am ever going to see.

So, I don't hate him, but in interviews and such, he always comes off as a better-than-you douche, which is one reason I think he has such hatred geared toward him.

With all that said, about your post- yes, he does love doing things practical, but more often than not, he lets the explosions get in the way (even in movies of his I like), and lately, he's abandoned any sort of logic, even within the worlds he's creating (please explain to me how a human goes to robot heaven, but effing Optimus, a damned robot doesn't!) and his sense of awkward and juvenille humor (one of the things I hate the most about him) doesn't fit the stories he tends to tell- in my movie about alien robots fighting, I do not need dogs humping, people yelling about grandma's carpet, or jive talking racist robots.

And those are his problems, but he refuses to learn or suit the style, instead whatever he makes, must suit his style, which fails miserably at times.
1:34AM on 12/03/2010
Also, I meant to mention this, but my reply was already pretty lengthy- whatever yu my think of his movies, fine, but off the set, in interviews, and his comments to film geeks online, he always comes off as a complete and utter douche, and that it must be we are wrong, and he is always blameless. Same thing goes for Ratner- even if they make entirely decent films, their actions toward the movie loving communities has always been mean and disrespectful.

WHAT A HYPOCRITE!

It's so funny that Paramount forced Bay into shooting the film in 3D, prompting him to love the format when his egotistical ass previously told the whole world he hated it and thought it was garbage.

I wonder if Warner Bros. tried to pull a fast one on Nolan like that. He probably told them to fuck off and they said, "Yes, sir."

Never liked Bay but...

The serving he just gave all you internet movie douchbags was awesome. I love the guy now.
After all, why would Bay know how to make a movie on his own? He obviously needs bitches off the internet who have never shot a frame of footage in their lives to offer him advice.
This is why internet movie geeks are never happy and essentially redundant, they can always do it better. Except of one small fact. They can't.
And Paul, you went to see a movie called 'Jackass 3D' in 2D. Do you also go to

Bay doesn't understand that 3D today is about submersion, not shit jumping out at you, unless it fits the tone of the movie (Piranha 3D). I don't have any interest in this.

They could be giving $50 to every person in the theater and I still wouldn't go see this. 3D, 2D or VHS it doesn't matter.

No one quite knows how to promote a film like Micheal Bay does.

The best movie to watch in 3D since Avatar was Resident Evil: Afterlife. Both were shot in 3D instead of converting to 3D in post production, like Clash of the Titans and many others. When 3D is done right, like Avatar and Resident Evil: Afterlife, it makes the movie that much better.

The Transformer movies were imagined for 3D. Bay knows how to entertain and he will with Transformers 3.

Everything about Michael Bay is so douchey. I won't see this movie. I didn't see Transformers 2. And I fell asleep during Transformers 1. Do not give a fuck. I'd like to film my middle finger in 3D and give Michael Bay a personal screening.

I hate 3D

Paramount "requested" all cinemas with 3D capabilites to show Jackass in ONLY 3D. Whoever distributed Step Up 3D did the same. Just thought I'd share. Transforms in 3D is definitely going to detract from the viewing experience, but hey, it's money.

A moron cant call other people morons.

I think Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Qt or any of the other directors who've made great films have earned the right to throw insults at people who criticize them.
Funny how good filmmakers never do insult though. It's like if you truly know what your doing you let the work answer critics.

Bay's a child though, and needs to resort to name calling. This movie will suck because Bay sucks, not because 3D sucks.

Didn't Bay resist 3D at first?

I remember reading somewhere that Bay himself thought it would be too much to have the next installment of Transformers in 3D. Yet I am not surprised, to paraphrase Bill Hicks, if money had a dick Bay would be sucking it all day long

Done.

I accept Michael Bay's invitation to his editing room. The reason is 2-fold. 1) So I can tell him to his face that 3D doesn't make it a better movie, and 2) so that I may watch the film for free and still give it negative reviews.

Bay is such a joke. Nothing like acting like it was your idea to do something all along even though it's quite widely known that he never wanted to film in 3D in the first place.

Dimensions?

2D or 3D, the movie itself will still be in 0D.

Bay is a cocky cock and will pay for his crimes against humanity!!!

About Pixar

I imagine Disney's putting the pressure on Pixar to do 3D since their films are going to compete with the likes of gimmicky titles like Monsters vs Aliens. Up and Toy Story 3 had a great approach to 3D- just enough depth to give a sense of richness... the only problem is it's not "eye-popping". To do "eye-popping" you need a story that lends itself to it.... like How to Train Your Dragon which was absolutely fantastic in 3D!

I don't know who's the bigger ass,

Michael Bay, or JoBlo's "Hottie Of The Week," Vida Guerra.

I'm going to go look for more pics of Vida Guerra. That ass of hers is hyp·no·tiz·ing.

At least we know the story will make more sense than the last one (damn writers strike!)... I'm really hoping that third time's a charm

You didn't hear? It's gonna be all improv this time around. That way, they don't need to worry about the numerous script rewrites.

Mr. Bay, respectfully, I won't be seeing TF3 in 3D or 2D, because I won't be seeing it in theaters at all. I might rent it one day, but only if it gets better reviews than TF2, which I don't see happening.

Hoyle, I would be shocked if he somehow manages to make a worse movie than TF2. TF2 had it all. Robot testicles. Robot canes. Robot heaven. Racist robots. Robot babies. If, in TF3, Bay so much as goes 10 seconds without a lame sex joke or an incomprehensible, unnecessary quick-cut edit to a Middle East location, it will be a better movie than TF2.

Add Bay's style of editing and 3D and you sure gonna need a vomit bag by your side if you watch this in theater.

Thats alright, I already intended to pass on this one.

This coming from a guy who said Transformers 2 looks just fine. "There has never been a live-action show that has pushed the boundaries of 3D like Transformers 3." Oh, shut the fuck up!
