Michael Bay was on my unredeemable list since he first started making movies, but I really, really liked Pain and Gain.
 
2014-08-12 07:52:11 PM  
As Turtles proved, just put his name above the marquee and terrible people will flock to terrible movies in droves. I wonder if they could keep using his name posthumously.

I watched it not knowing it was a Michael Bay movie. I was surprised at the end when I found that out. I enjoyed the movie until I found out it was really based on true events. Now it just seems dirty.

Since he started? What was wrong with the first Bad Boys or The Rock?

I just stopped by to say that I've become a fan of the Bay-produced TNT series The Last Ship. It's unabashedly jingoistic, but has enough heart and humor to balance things out!


.................

This must be what a descent into madness feels like.

I'll...uh....take my leave now before I end up showering more praise for the King of Explosions.

I'll give The Rock a pass (I had forgotten about that one) but a big part of Bad Boys was a case of "mistaken identity" - and that's a dealbreaker for me. If I wanted to watch Three's Company, I'd go back to 1977.

Turtles showed that even if he's not the director, it will still have his "stylistic" fingerprints all over it.

You know what was hilarious about Pain & Gain?

In the lead-up to the movie releasing, people started accusing Bay of making the lead characters, Lugo and Doornbal, as sympathetic as he could.

Then the movie drops, and surprise...the mains were portrayed as the thieving, manipulative murderers they were.

Pretty much. It's hard to say the movie glorifies the murderers when they're portrayed as muscleheaded jagweeds.

Pretty much. And how did you not know that a movie that grossed a billion dollars worldwide would get a sequel.

Paramount is the studio that has churned out 9 Friday the 13th movies. They'll beat a franchise into the ground as long as the money keeps rolling in.

"I feel happy that Michael Bay is passing on the baton for 'Transformers 5' but I also feel sad that there's going to be a 'Transformers 5'"


I don't care. What I mean is Michael Bay could remake every movie with 'splosions but no one is forcing me to see any of his movies. After Transformers 3, I just got tired of his moviemaking style so I won't be seeing TF4 or TMNT. I chose to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Edge of Tomorrow, and a whole bunch of other great films that a lot of reviewers recommended. Good luck to Bay and his career but I'm done with his films.

On the other hand if other people like to watch his movies then it's none of my business. He makes money for Hollywood so that's all that matters.

I have a degree in English Lit., a thirty year fixed at 3.25 and I'm in the middle of the memoirs of Ulysses S Grant. I do not apologize for enjoying Transformer movies. They are fun for me and I happen to enjoy having fun. If I want herb encrusted trout, that's what I order. Sometimes I just want a cheap burger. Sue me.

Sure, but couldn't someone who is a better filmmaker make better movies if someone were to rub Bay out? No sweat off my sack, I do the same CG stuff no matter what, just saying, there are more talented people out there.

I gave up after 2, and I didn't even bother with Turtles.  If he makes a He-Man reboot, he'll hit the trifecta of my childhood ruined.

The Half in the Bag episode where they watch the first three Transformers movies at the same time is worth a watch. Certainly more entertaining than the movies themselves, for whatever that's worth.

The reason people are ticked off is that there's great potential in these concepts: someone *could* have made a Transformers or Turtles movie that would get more than 11% on rotten tomatoes.

But that hasn't happened, and it would be nice if somehow it does happen in the future. However, these crap movies continue to do well, so why would studios ever make something better?

Msol: The reason people are ticked off is that there's great potential in these concepts: someone *could* have made a Transformers or Turtles movie that would get more than 11% on rotten tomatoes.


That's the annoying thing about the Transformers movies, not that I really even care about them but they managed to make big transforming robots fighting each other boring and hard to follow. And the human scenes, which were way too long were shiat. It seems like a transformers movie wouldn't be hard to make entertaining.

Bad Boys 3, seems like they're going back to the well. Sort of like Johnny Depp going back to Pirates because his last 5 movies flopped. But I did like BB2.

Just for curiosity's sake, what part of the movies were fun for you?

Was it the alien robots peeing, farting, humping, and stepping in dog poo while trying to hide behind a house? Was it the cinematography, with its closeups of jagged metal and shaky claustrophobic in-your-face nonsense of blurring colors and loud, obnoxious noises trying to confuse you instead of show you what's going on? Was it the schizophrenic direction, giving the audiences five opposing tones and moods states in a 40 second timeframe? Where it completely loses focus as to how it wants you to feel about it? And the marketing can't decide if its a slapstick comedy, a teen romantic fable, an action adventure, a political thriller or a war epic? Was it the writing, wrought with plot holes, continuity errors, inane backstory, cringing dialogue, hackneyed cliches like "destiny" subplots and "loser gets the girl" MTV date movie bullshiat? Was it the characters -- underdeveloped and underutilized, with no redeeming qualities in any of the humans and barely any humanity in the robots (except for one), where the leads were played by "exasperated suprised man" and "wooden pinup girl"? Was it the setting, that jumped around from city to desert to halfway around the world without any real considerable time given to how the characters could all get there so fast? Was it the fact that everyone's wearing lipstick for some reason? Was all that fun for you? Really? Mr. Rhodes Scholar?

Just when I think Fark has hit peak Rage-Boner for Michael Bay, we reach a new threshold.
 
2014-08-12 11:33:19 PM  
I've come to realize that great action scenes are about moments -- that part where the character does something really cool and strikes a pose and you're like "awww yeah"...its like fan service, you can't help but cheer when the character has their cool moment. The best recent movie to do this was The Avengers. There were moments galore in it, from Captain America kicking alien ass in front of the cops to Thor KO'ing the Hulk with Mjolnir, Hawkeye shooting shiat without looking at it, Hulk just being a big raging ball of fark YOU....every superhero got their chance to shine but the best moment is when the camera pans around all of them in the rubble in the streets of NYC with the triumphant orchestral score and you KNOW shiat is going down and it'll be fricken AWESOME.... yeah.

Transformers doesn't do that. Characters need to BE COOL and they need to DO COOL things... none of the transformers were cool. They had ridiculous lowbrow accents. They made stupid decisions. One of them hung out in a garage like a dog and whimpered when his owner had to leave him -- THAT'S NOT COOL. It's not cool when they smack each other around like the Three Stooges. It's not cool when they're peeing, farting, humping, or wandering around absent-mindedly like a bunch of geriatric old farts.

There are no "moments" in Transformers. I can think of one semi-cool moment where I thought "hey this might be pretty good" -- at the beginning of Transformers 2, Sideswipe dispatches a Decepticon while drifting a full 360... and afterwards he does his cool pose and has his moment, blows the smoke off his gun and goes "damn, I'm good". And there I thought: Awesome, maybe this movie will correct the mistakes of the first movie. But then later on there is Devastator.... with two gigantic wrecking balls for gonads. And people point it out.

That's what Transformers has essentially done: Created something cool -- race of military-grade war machines with artificial intelligences from another world......and then reduced them to toilet humour jokes. It's like giving Batman uncontrollable flatulence or making Ironman pinch a loaf inside his suit. How farking ridiculous is that? Could you take any movie seriously that literally shiats on its own characters in that manner?

Fark you, Michael Bay. If I see you in person, I will seriously punch you in the farking cock.

Doktor_Zhivago: God forbid you don't expect every single movie to be a brainy hipster masturbation


Therefore all movies for the rest of time must require you to "turn your brain off?" Oh look! Hollywood agrees, because those are the only ones that even get made anymore. Brainy hipster masturbatory movies don't rake in $65 million in their opening weekend, so why bother ever taking a chance on anything worth watching, when people will flock to and defend your lazily written 'splosion fest, because "hipsters."

/however, I do love the Marvel Movies...

"One question I always get is 'Tony, how do you use the bathroom when you're in the suit?' *relaxing face* 'Just like that." -Ironman 2

I agree with you though on those points, and the "hiding" scene was one of the worst parts of the first movie.

"So, the giant robots that can turn into cars don't want to be seen. Where can they hide?"
"Bushes? One behind the house?"
"Uhhh...sure. That's the most logical choice..."

I was just pointing out that even Marvel sinks to toilet humor sometimes. Granted, it was in their worst film to date, and was used to say something about the character as opposed to Transformer's easy gag...

Well, no.  There is no one cancer to cure.  There are thousands of different cancers.  Throwing more money at the problem doesn't automatically fix anything.  By your logic we shouldn't spend any money on entertainment if there's a problem somewhere in the world.
