- Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Might be a little off-topic, but....
I'm probably the odd one out, but I actually liked his non-TF movies a lot more than the TF trilogy. While theory suggests that giant robots fighting each other would be right up his alley, he just seems out of his element here. While I laughed at most of the jokes by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the Bad Boys movies (the Middle-Eastern convenience store owner scene in Bad Boys 1 was one of my favorites), I found the jokes in the TF movies annoying and just plain bad.
IMO, Micheal Bay is a hired gun, no more no less. He was honest about not having been a fan of TF's, and I doubt making the movies has managed to convert him. He's expressed respect for the deep and rich lore of the franchise, and that's about as far as he'll go.
Unlike what certain fans and haters are convinced of, I think he neither loves the TF franchise nor is he out to destroy your childhood. It's the paychecks he's in love with, and he delivers what the producers want--a blockbuster movie that pulls in the audience. Good reviews are optional.
As for me, I'll continue to watch TF sequels for as long as he'll continue to dish them out. The fast-forward button is a very handy feature when annoying comic relief humans pop up between the robot fight scenes. Too bad the remote doesn't have a feature to make Megatron less of a bitch in ROTF and DOTM (for this, I blame the real culprits; Orci, Kurtzman and Kruger).
