Michael Bay to Quit Transformers?

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.

    michael bay’s films are far from mindless. in fact, transformers is racist propaganda that should be heavily criticized.

    the comment is blown a bit out of proportion. he’s been saying for a while that he wants to take at least a year off before the next transformers movie. paramount wants it to go into production next year, and he wants a year to take a break from the robots and make a smaller film for himself. while the idea of Bay making a ‘smaller’ film is slightly humorous, I think he’s totally in the right here.

    I’m no fan of Michael Bay, but he is good at what he does. As long as there is a demand for mindlessly entertaining movies with explosions, and there always will be, there will need to be people like Bay making those movies. Then again, a Michael Bay movie set in a winery in South France could be hilarious.
