    Ooo... this isn't going to end well.

    Hopefully the questions are reasonable like Orci and Kurtzman's interview.

    I do not envy the poor bastard who has to sift through those and decide which to actually pass on to Bay.

    Sent two questions yesterday, neither of which were "Mr. Bay, why did you foresee the need to rape my childhoodz?" :p

    I'd like to e-mail an apology on behalf of the more level-headed TF fans everywhere (those who are both for & against the movie I hasten to add) for the idiocy he's had to put up with since starting work on TRANSFORMERS.

    I'm not joking either - I think it important he be told that we're not all insanely fanatical morons who have to resort to threats of homicide to prove a point. While Bay almost certainly knows this in his heart, I should think it'll be all the nastiness that stays in his memory. Something a bit more positive sent via an 'official' route such as this may be go a small way to redressing that balance!

    As for questions, I can't honestly think of anything that hasn't already been addressed but, again in all honesty, would like to send a whopping big "thank you" for doing the job.

    I feel bad for the guy. He's one of the best action movie directors there is today. Transformers is supposed to be an action movie. The designs needed to get updated badly. Why do you all gotta hate?

    I sent him the obvious e-mail:
    Mr. Bay.

    After both Godzilla and Bad Boys 2 flopped because of your attempts to "modernize" the properties, what prompted you to do the same to Transformers?

    Also, how is using a theme made popular by H.G. Geiger nearly 50 years ago constituted as modernizing?



    Apparently both e-mails are unanswerable enigmas the likes of which my puny mind cannot decipher as I have not received any reply.:confused:

    1. You're joking, right?

    2. Re: The 2nd question -- what?!

    3. It's "H. R. Giger".

    4. Yyyyeah. I doubt you'll get answers.


    EDIT: Oh, and, from IMDb:

    Bad Boys II -- est. budget $130M, worldwide box office take $267.7M + rentals/sales (not listed)
    Godzilla -- est. budget $130M, worldwide box office take $379M + rentals of $70.9M (sales not listed)

    How are those flops, exactly?

    Well there's only 2 things I've been hating on about the Movie. Having Hugo Weaving voice Megaturd (which is forgivable), and that the faces of all the TF didn't someonewhat resemble the G1 toons we all love. I understand they needed to be modernized, but prime is the only one whose face is even remotely recognizeable. I don't think my ire is unwarrented. With all the other "special" things he has done to bastardize our childhood memories, I think I am being quite resonable.

    WELLS. H.G. WELLS.
    Oh man, that's just embarrasing; if you're going to email someone to moan at them about something you say they've done, at least get your facts straight first...
    I hope all emails he gets from the haters are this well informed. Not unanswerable; just not worth answering.

    Um, Peter Cullen's voicing Optimus Prime. Hugo Weaving's voicing Megatron. The whole "Megaturd" thing is pretty tired and childish by now

    Couldn't have said it better. I plan on emailing something similar. I may not agree with each decision made for the film but I still can't wait to see it.

    Cripes, some of the replies in this thread are into embarrassing territory already. I wouldn't even want to look at the pile of digital hatred the poor Yahoo intern is gonna have to sift through to give to Bay.

    Oh, THAT'S what he meant. I wondered what the hell Giger had to do with anything.

    Since that's the case, I'm assuming he's talking about WotW. Might wanna double check that "nearly 50 years ago" figure. WotW was published in 1898.

    I want to ask him what attracted him to the project. I mean Michael Bay, and Transformers, were previously the last two things you would stick in the same same sentence. It still seems a little odd to know he's directing it.
