    Hmmm, i am hoping this strike never happens. But whats 2 more years! Thats a good amount of time IMO between films to be released.

    Agreed. We're pretty much in '08, so two years (really a year-and-a-half since it'll be out summer '10) isn't bad at all.

    Well, I wouldn't want to get a rushed, half-assed movie over a movie's production which took all the time it needed to make it overall better.

    Now, what gets me is how you can have a PREMEDITATED strike like this one.

    It defies all logic.

    But that's Hollywood for you.

    What does Bay care fore??? Didn't he already give up his position b/c of the blue ray thing??? Maybe the movie company will wise up and replace him while he's gone for a year...

    That turned out to be a big whack of him super-hyperbolizing. It got retracted and damage control stuffs were done.

    I honestly don't care WHAT he has to say. After that stupid Bluray fiasco his opinion means pretty much nothing to me.

    I like the delay because that buys me some time before I have to start *bleep*ing about the look again.

    Maybe with so much time between movies we can not only get a new director but maybe a relaunch of the franchise as well where Decepticon have enough character to be worthy of lines and the Autobots other than just Prime and Bumblebee can get a bit more of the big screen loving.

    I know it's always considered Bay hating to say you don't want him back in the directors chair for Transformers 2, but I'd really like a different director who would bring in the wider crisper shots to make it all seem bigger and grander. So if a delay would bring a more appealing look I'll take that delay.

    Doesn't seem like hating to me either... despite the first one being an origin movie, the TFs got little quality screen time. Way too much time was wasted playing in the backyard, etc. The blurry shots and jumpy camera bugged me a lot too, I'd like to see what I came to watch... besides when they're standing still.

    But who knows? Maybe in two and a half years Bay will change as a director and actually fix these issues. Maybe writers will write something focused mostly on TFs and not just humans discovering TFs exist? Who knows?

    Man what is with Hollywood and putting their ill informed opinions into EVERYTHING. People are asking you about a movie not what the President had to say.

    Considering the entire ding-dong moment of stupidity in the movie I"m not surprised this guy is as uninformed and naieve as he is.

    There was a rumor from a friend of his that he was thinking about doing a small sort of indie film to get away from the Hollywood machine for a bit. If he does something character driven like that during the strike it might really help him with the weaker parts of his films.
