Michael Bay Gushes Over Steven Spielberg’s Beard & His Collection Of Toy Robots That Change Into Cars
It’s pretty chic to bust on Michael Bay and his movies. He really hasn’t made anything of actual substance. His hero/idol Steven Spielberg dropped “Jaws” and “Close Encounters of The Third Kind” on us very early on in his career and gave everyone the idea that one day, he would be winning awards for his work. Bay hasn’t done that as of yet.
However…I am alone in thinking he has it in him somewhere? The only reason his movies are remotely watchable are due to his directorial expertise. The guy just knows how to make movies. If somebody would get him a serious script and he could actually tune down his Bay-ness (get it?), I really feel like he could make something of serious substance and merit.
Of course, I don’t think that “Transformers 2” is going to be that movie. However, Bay has let everyone know that Spielberg thinks the movie is “awesome”. This is according to the post on Michael Bay’s official website today. E.T.’s dad told Bay that he thought it was his best movie to date. Wow…better than “Bad Boys 2” Steve? That’s quite the compliment.
