    Can someone define "lame sequel"? I can admit that "Matrix Reloaded" wasnt of my taste but "Back to the Future 2", "POTC: Dead Man Chest", "SW: Empire Strikes Back" and probably i'm forgetting other example were good. Bah, i enjoy them.
    Not a set up for 3rd film? Hm...well, could be bad or good. I guess Tf movies will be like Batman or Superman movies then. Could work, i dont know if i should believe in Bay. ^^

    Sounds to me like he's just saying it won't be a stupid cliffhanger like POTC2, etc.

    That's good. Doesn't really seem like one of his misinformation things too. Most trilogy's, imo, usually have the first sequel suffer, because it's basically meant to set up the plot for the third film. This doesn't always happen, but it has affected movies in the past.

    I hope this is true, although Back to Future and Star Wars pulled it off well personally I cant think of many others that did.

    Well, could be bad or good I guess. We'll have to wait and see. Frankly I think the 'sequel setups' worked well for the first Star Wars franchise and the Back to the Future franchise, but not so well with others. While Pirates 2 was so so (it wasn't a bad movie, but it's cliffhanger was kind of out of the blue) the Matrix franchise is the only one to do this I would consider lame.

    Well, guess I'll wait and see what comes.

    i hate that Michael Bastard! He says he didn't want to be involved in transformers 2 aswell, cuz he doesn't want to make , quote, "stupid toy movies"

    I don't get it how can anyone like that son of a bitch who keeps constantly attacking the transformers concept and transformer comunity, he should be fed to the dogs or shut up forever

    New movie threads are amazing. The detractors who got bitchslapped last time have been aching this last year, waiting for an outlet for all of this angst. Finally we can all go around the circle again.

    ANYWAYS, on topic: He probably just means that he isn't making this movie with a third movie in mind. I imagine the process is a lot different if you know ahead of time that there is going to be a sequel, and even more different if they are shooting at the same time like Pirates and The Matrix.

    man that's a relief. the first leaked treatment had it set up as a cliffhanger. the first one obviously was set up for a sequel, but it wasn't a cliffhanger. it wasn't like "let's leave the story unfinished so people will HAVE to see both movies, and thus making them both lame."

    this is good news for me.
