Yeah, he's a real hero all right.

Is he going to pay for this? From all the money he made from those "stupid Saturday morning cartoons..." Movies? (An actual quote from Bay on WHY he would NOT make a Trasnformers movie...oh, wait, he did. What a spineless sell out).

Theaters are suffering right now. Like it or not, they are. 70 - 90 percent of box office totals get turned back to the studio. Theaters survive on concession sales. (Which is why they are so bloody expensive. Movie companies REFUSE to take a smaller cut at the box office. So, their greed trickles to the consumer, aka, you.) Projectors are turned down for a reason: cost efficiency on BOTH the projector bulbs (which are SUPER expensive) AND the electricity it takes to run them.

Bay probably didn't even write this letter. I doubt he can even read. Much less care about anyone or anything but his fat pockets. This letter has NOTHING to do with Bay being a hero. He's an egotistical no-talent ass clown who sold out to do 3 Transformers movies to bail out his failing career. He's just trying to milk this for all it's worth.




The Ignorance if this post, and the like minded fools who agree with this are staggering. First of all, your information is wrong, second of all, if you don't like the current status of the franchise, sit it out and wait for G1 to return.

The truth is, Mbay takes no salary for the movie, nor does he get any royalties. That's right, none. You see he opts out of them and takes a cut of the merchandise profits. So in theory, the movie could be a POS and it will only effect his future job possibilities. Him going out to send letter to the projectionists is a huge step in wanting quality for something outside of his control. I already respected the man for his directing and producing abilities, but this is just above and beyond, especially since he really doesn't have a monetary gain to get out of it.

Some of you think you know how the systems works, but you have no f$%^ing clue. You ignorant blowholes are the reason the fan base on gets taken 50% to credibility. Nothing but a bunch of ignorant whining children who are mad because BumbleBee isn't a Volkswagen Bug. Get over it, and stop blaming the Director. You know that Hasbro and Paramount have 90% control of story, characters and Direction right? Mbay is not the creator. He is just the guy that puts everyone else's **** together, and even tries to throw things in for the fans, even though it's not his job.

Go get educated on how the industry works, then you can complain.


unbelievable.

Am I the only one here who hasn't already decided that DOTM is an awful movie and that everyone involved should die horribly, and that Michael Bay, who directed this film filled with dizzyingly complex CGI robots as well as countless others, is a ****** gay black Jewish moron who can barely put together a sentence?

The problem with ROTF was that it was written during a writers' strike.
He admitted this, and unless you thought both movies were crap on all levels, don't judge DOTM based on that.

i havent said owt bad about movie yet. wait til thursday and then we will see.

as for the letter, its just another publicity stunt, if bay was more concerned with what he put up on the screen as opposed to how the turd he produced was lit then we would be a lot better off.

Why are we applauding him as if he did this for the benefit of the movie-going public? He did it so that more people would pay money to see his movie. Michael Bay's M.O. is Michael Bay.

It's also proof positive that he's convinced that explosions, special effects and 3D are going to make his movies better. I smell another ROTF.

Why are you so salty?

Don't be salty.

It's bad for your heart health.

Me? I'm ready for Prime to kick some ass and I am looking forward to some decent 3-D for once. Ain't got no time for haters, I want to get in early for some good seats.

Oh I did, but there were way too many people to quote across three pages. The level of hatred and venom being spewed the last two days is just embarassing and just reinforces every negative thing I think about this fanbase.
