    Halo. He can use his comic genius to make teabagging a reality on the big screen.

    Any one of those that focuses on people would work, methinks. Nothing where there's machines or robots or perhaps even aliens, as all of those will have an expectation of the fans to resemble their prior counterparts at a mere glance (and not just for one character or exo-suit, or alien or alien type) but all of them.


    Although had Gobots been a choice, my vote would have gone to that I think. I think just about everything Bay's done in Transformers would have translated better and worked perfectly for a Gobots reboot. Said that since the first TF design leaks years ago.

    I concur with this, I've read a few of Reilly's books (Temple, Ice Station, Area 7 and Scarecrow) and through them all I was thinking "This is the sort of thing old Michael Bay was born for"

    I'd be entirely content if he just completely vanishes and is never heard from again.

    Especially if he takes Uwe Boll with him.

    The longer he continues to direct, the more the motion picture industry will suffer later.

    He can make money, absolutely, but that's basically because he's ravaged expectations for films down to the point where no one even expects characterization or a tight, cohesive plot at all in a "big, event film" anymore.

    Eventually, audiences will tire of that, and it's going to be a lot harder to bounce back because there will come a point where "bigger and louder" will peter out and can't go any further.
