WARNING: ESOTERIC NERDERY TO FOLLOW
Frequent Bruckheimer collaborator and B-movie maker Michael Bay announced earlier this week that he was angry and wouldn't be back to make Transformers 2. Was it script issues? Casting? Scheduling? Budgeting? He wanted to move to India and tutor underprivileged retards? Nope. Paramount had chosen the HD DVD format over Blu Ray. He was pissed. I mean, who wouldn't be, right?
"I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks! They were progressive by having two formats. No Transformers 2 for me!"
But then, just as suddenly, he reversed himself.
"Last night at dinner I was having dinner with three Blu-ray owners. They were pissed about no Transformers Blu-ray, and I drank the Kool-Aid hook, line and sinker. So at 1:30 in the morning I posted — nothing good ever comes out of early AM posts, mind you — I over reacted. I heard where Paramount is coming from and the future of HD and players that will be close to the $200 mark which is the magic number. I like what I heard. As a director, I'm all about people seeing films in the best quality possible, and I saw and heard firsthand people upset about a corporate decision. So today I saw 300 on HD, it rocks! So I think I might be back on to do Transformers 2!"
Jesus. He's like some unholy combination of Comic Book Guy and a 10-year-old girl. Who can't conjugate verbs.
"My mommy wanted to take me to the zoo, but I didn't want to go, so she sucks and I hate her and I wish all animals were dead! But then I had a nap and she bought me some ice cream. I love giraffes!"
