Michael Bay has posted a small update in his forums at Shootfortheedit.com. In this latest update Bay talks about still writing the robot voices and about some of the recent events involving the Transformers Movie. Here is what Bay posted:

"Almost a 100 days left. I guess I should start posting every week? I've been working my ass off - the cut is really coming along -the shots ---awesome. Some of the most difficult renders in ILM history. Sometimes up to 38 hours per frame. The Show West thing was fun to see the scenes play in a 1000 person house. But they just saw 25 minutes so it is hard to feel engaged because they are not seeing the full run of a movie. Harry called me to tell me how he loved it. I see all the dickwad talk back people who claim they have read a finished script. Impossible - I kept the only draft for the last two months before shooting. That's where did major retooling to the script - yes the scene beats are similar but a very different script. We are still writing the robot voices. They talk about just 20 minutes of action at the end - yeah right. This is by far the most action I have ever put into a movie - I have 12 huge set pieces. Boy I get tired of these lame cry babies on the net.

:lol: I found this far funnier than I probably should have.

More action than he's ever put into a movie? Aren't Bay's films all action?

Anyway, at least we don't have any cry babies here. :-s

I remember when that timer had over 500 or 600 days on it. Man that was a long ass time ago already. I can't believe that we've known about this movie for almost 4 years now. Hell, I can't believe that Seibertron.com will be 7 years old this summer already. We'll have to send the site off to 2nd Grade!

Bwaahahahaha :lol:

Hey if anything, Bay is brutally honest. I don't care what he thinks of the fans... it doesn't bug me for some reason. I don't think I'll ever meet the guy so it would be silly of me to hold a grudge against him.

Awww yeah. The dialogue and characterization of the Transformers is so important that they haven't even written it yet! Take that all you haters who've been saying the robots are just going to be generic monsters whose personalities are irrelevant to the plot!

no cry babies. Ive seen like a million cry babies posts on here about the film. still good that the ROBOTS HAVE CHARACTER AND ARE NOT JUST A BUNCH OF MOVIE MONSTERS. HOW CAN YOU MAKE A TRANSFORMERS MOVIE WITH OUT ROBOTS WITH PERSONALLITYS WHAT DO YOU THINK HE IS FREAKING RETARTED. The only retards are the criers. This movie will be a masterpiece no matter how pathetic things get when it comes to fandom. really what is this critic central, for christ sake think possitive.

Well I wouldn't go as far as saying masterpiece. But it'll be a fun 2 hour ride.

Critic central? I think you're thinking of Tformers.com.

Well Bay you can't have your cake and eat it too.
Does every big shot in Hollywood have to think they're Master, Commander and overall dictator of what we should like and hate?
If he doesn't like people getting into an uproar about what he's doing then:
A) He shouldn't have picked Transformers.
B) He should have done by the book.
C) He shouldn't have tried to alienate us as another genre of nerds and discount whatever we had to say.
Seriously he's been in the movie business for how many years? I think he needs to get more of a grip.

At least Don tried somewhat to put up with our crap.

Sorry needed to vent just get a little tired of Bay's shenanigans. I know, I know, beating a dead horse...

What is the saying?

Cartman has a theme park, Micheal bay keeps getting to make movies, there is no god.

Is he taking lessons from george bush now?

"They talk about just 20 minutes of action at the end - yeah right."

What the hell does this mean? Is he saying that they talk through out the movie? Is he saying that the last twenty minutes they don't talk? I am confused.

"Sometimes up to 38 hours per frame."
Typical, we get to replace something good with something high tech. Why do I need to know that it took 38 hours for a frame? What does this say about the movie?

ive pretty much stayed away from bays site but have to admit the guy comes off as a total tool. way too defensive with a real " your either with me or my enemy" complex. i mean FFS grow up.

as to the film i too cant believe how quickly times gone by. literally less than 4 months to go (we wont get it july 4th in ireland :sad: ) so i'll probably get it first on pirate. but i am starting to get a good vibe about it. it wont look fecking anything like transformers but at least it'll have a mature approach to it and peter will bring a tear to my eye when he first starts talking. thats when i'll know if it works for me. :grin:

but have to say, my mates you loved TF as kids are fecking lost. showed them some pics on my phone of the line up and he was like "who!?!"

That they're rolling out the best possible CGI to make the TF's as realistic and belieavable as possible.

"[The critics] talk about [the previous script having] just about 20 minutes of action at the end — yeah right."

He's saying there will be a lot more action than the scripts we've seen, not that there will be a lot of action and no dialog.

Psssst, I think that was sarcasm. What people in... "Iacon" don't get sarcasm anymore? A shame, it's a hot commodity at the moment.
