    Honestly, I admire Bay and give him credit for all his visual work. But he needs like a partner to direct with. Let him handle all the crazy action, while someone else directs the story portion of the movie.

    Just give him a better script, I think he'll do alright.

    This isn't a parody.

    ***Staff edit - Nope. Not appropriate. ***

    Agreed!
    I've thought the same thing in terms of sporting events. People will go watch sports for 3 hours and there's not character development, storyline, etc. The same thing with many action blockbusters. They don't need those things to be a "good" movie.
    For me, I determine whether I think a movie is "good" or "bad" based simply on how much I enjoy watching it. I never enjoyed watching a movie more than I did DotM.

    I was referring to the sarcasm of it. Even sporting events require thought to enjoy. If you can't understand something it's hard to enjoy it.

    Quote for truth. If you like it, then it's awesome. This was a great way to sum up his style of direction.


    Well it's not exactly easy combing thru all of the thread pages. Can't somebody just do a merge?

    This is old.

    It's not against Bay it's against the people who try to find fault with summer blockbusters that are nonstop action, using Bay as the leading example.

    Never saw it ever. It was humorous. I especially enjoyed the comparison to ballet.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this video in a non-satirical way.
