Like this was inevitable. As everyone is still passing harsh judgment (deservedly) on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the fact remains that it has already made enough revenue to break even of its extremely bloated $200 million budget. This of course means that Transformers 3 is on the way with more Michael Bay action that you can think of, right? Wrong. Michael Bay has said that he would like a break from the fighting robots, and he already has two other projects in the film mill.… Continue
So Michael Bay got paid $75 million to do this sequel to his 2007 summer hit, Transformers. $75 million to produce a $200 million movie.
Holy shit that's a lot of money.
Of course, we as the audience get the Michael Bay bang for his buck with tons of robots, explosions, action, and Shia Lebouf running around screaming the word "NO!" as a Terminator-esque Decepticon chases him through a highly idyllic Princeton that… Continue
Estimates are in, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen reached astounding heights of box office glory in its opening 5 days, soaring to a level not seen since a certain caped crusader.
The sequel to Michael Bay's Transformers grossed an unbelievable $201.2 million in its first 5 days of release, breaking several records, and coming surprisingly close to others. The Friday-to-Sunday weekend portion of the gross came to an (estimated) $112.0…Continue
When I saw the first Michael Bay Transformers movie back in 2007, I talked with a friend of mine who had seen the movie as well and I tried to gauge his reaction. Personally, I enjoyed the movie and was only angry about the missing climactic showdown between Optimus Prime and Megatron that I had so desired. This also got my friend angry along with the majority of the movie as a whole, which puzzled me. I asked him why, and that started a… Continue
Well it seems like Michael Bay wiped his ass with the script (again) and out came Transformers 2!
I decided to go and see transformers 2 a few days ago, and to my amazement I had a lot of fun. In fact, I had such a good time that lady next to me felt obliged to tell me to shut up or get out. To tell you the truth, I was laughing at the movie because it was just so bad, I really couldn't help but laugh at all the people who paid to see it as… Continue

As Leon has stated in his newest blog located here: , the "Sad Days, Sad Days" Watchmen Man is incredibly pissed off at Spill.com because of Korey and Co-Host's Video Review of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Well it turns out that he is still really, really pissed off about in his new view which has been posted only a few minutes ago:
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - The IMAX Experience Review...& Addressing Brought Up Issues How do the Autobots and Decepticons look in IMAX? Are the Twins really that annoying? Does this sequel really blow?
REVIEW OF THE IMAX EXPERIENCE ITSELF
Optimus Prime fighting three Decepticons at once in a forest. The Fallen and his Decepticon soldiers on top of a giant pyramid. Autobots… Continue
I feel the backlash of this feel has been pretty harsh and that someone has to point out some key things and positives of this film. Before you go on reading just note I am one of those people who grew up with transformers
(as in I’d wake up at 7AM on Saturday mornings to catch it because the BBC ran it super early) and also… Continue
2 years ago when Michael Bay's first Transformers movie was released, there was some hub-bub about the characterization of Jazz. There's no denying that he was a blatant stereotype, even though some viewers excused it since he was a robot. Well, how are you gonna excuse this shit...
I get the feeling that a long time ago, someone walked up to a young budding director named Michael Bay and said to him, “You know, it looks like action comedies are really hip these days...” and that young director decided to take those words a little too closely to heart. I don’t think… Continue
Okay, so maybe action movies aren't the toast of the town these days. But I got to talk about one in particular after seeing it and Transporter 3 back to back. Now don't get me wrong, I like all three of the Transporter movies: they're fast, dumb, and action-packed; what more do you want? Yet these films, and many other quick action movies, still could not hold a candle to the intensity that was seen in "Heroic Bloodshed" movies.
Wow i dont know if that was real or not but it was the worst piece of crap i ever read. Im 14 and i could make a 10x better script. (P.S If it is real Michael Bay your still one of my favorite direcors).

Hmmm....let's see. What else do I have lying around here. Wait...what's this in the couch cushion...? PERFECT!
Alright Spillios, got another contest for ya. This time the prize is a DVD copy of HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY. Now, while I wasn't a fan of the film, I LOVE the DVD. You see it has a function in which you get to make choices for Harold and Kumar, like a choose your own adventure. Sometimes it gets you a deleted or extended scene. Other times it gets you… Continue
