Michael Bay Is A Golden God, And I Can't Wait To See What He Directs Next
Just wanted to throw up a new post, before the comments section below collapses under its own weight.
But maybe it's time to respin it, into a new talking point: there's no denying that Transformers 2 has made a buttload of money. How much of it is due to its direction, or is it all marketing?
Is there an under-respected section of the populace that actually likes this movie a lot, justifying its creation and making Michael Bay a respectable director? Or is it the kind of mediocre-enough dumb fun that too many people are willing to settle for?
Does it take a special skill set to have made a $400 million (inevitably) Transformers sequel, or could even someone as dubious as McG have done the same thing?
And as writers, are there lessons to be learned here, or should it just make us shake our heads in dumbfoundedness?
