Horror of horrors. Michael Bay ’86 is getting out of the Transformers game. Why? Because he doesn’t like negative reviews from critics.
“It’s easy to go shoot an art movie in a winery in the South of France. But people have no idea how hard it is to create something like Transformers. They (the critics) review me before they’ve even seen the movie…After the three and a half years I’ve spent making these movies, I feel like I’ve had enough of the Transformers world.”
Is there more than meets the eye for Michael Bay? Maybe:
“I need to do something totally divergent, something without any explosions.”

This reminds me of the time when Michael Jordan retired from basketball and started playing baseball. And then he played in an intergalactic basketball game with Bugs Bunny, Bill Murray, and Newman against Monstars, wherein he realized that basketball was actually his true calling. Hopefully a similar set of circumstances will allow Michael Bay to see the error of his ways, resulting in an explosively awesome Bad Boys-Transformers crossover.
