There are two types of people. Those who were let down by Transformers 2, and those who haven’t seen Transformers 2. Now that there’s some distance between he and the project, Michael Bay has admitted that the film wasn’t very good, and he too is subject to the failings of mortals.
“We made some mistakes,” admits Bay. “The real fault with [Transformers 2] is that it ran into a mystical world. When I look back at it, that was crap. The writers’ strike was coming hard and fast. It was just terrible to do a movie where you’ve got to have a story in three weeks.”
“I was prepping a movie for months where I only had 14 pages of some idea of what the movie was,” Bay goes on. “It’s a BS way to make a movie, do you know what I’m saying?”
Arrgggh. That is a BS way to make a movie. F&^%in’ writers, man. But hey, what was it he boasted to Rotten Tomatoes back in ’08?
“I’ve been writing Transformers 2. 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.”
Oh. Next thing you know, Heaven for Robots will be discovered as a real thing. Then he’ll be bragging he invented it. (Empire)
