Normally, as you know, I don’t update with wicked cool, up to the minute movie reporting, but I did see this on Slashfilm and I did think it was hilarious in such a juvenile way. Michael Bay and McG are trading verbal insults about giant goddamn robots.
Bay started it:
We’ve seen certain movies coming out even try to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads. Please, come on.
And McG responded with:
“It bothers me to tell you the truth. Ultimately, our large robots have nothing to do with the Transformers robots,” McG said. “I say with respect, giant robots have been the theme of film for a real long time.”
You should go to the Slashfilm link for the full story and the full quotes, FYI, but I took the best out of there.
How much of an arrogant waste of space do you have to be, Michael Bay, for me to feel sorry for McG? And McG, what a lame response. You should have just given Bay the finger.
Future filmmakers, take note – Michael Bay owns the Giant Robot idea and you’d better not infringe on that or he’ll make disparaging, douchebag comments about you in the press.
As I read the article, however, I really couldn’t help but imagine a situation in which Michael Bay, McG, Uwe Boll and Brett Ratner are locked in a room together with no food, no water and no way out. When they finally started starving, who would they pick? Would it surprise you if Bay was the first to get sacrificed for the greater good?
I wonder what kind of odds the Vegas bookies would be running on that one, that’s for sure.
