According to his official message board, Michael Bay screened Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for Steven Spielberg the other day.  Guess how Spielberg described it.  And again, this is according to Michael Bay:

“Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony.  There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said ‘It’s awesome’ He felt this movie was better then the first – and probably my best, who knows – at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it.” [shootfortheedit via /Film]

I get the feeling a film critic could come up to Michael Bay and say, “It’s interesting how you rendered the machines anthropomorphically.  It’s a strange decision aesthetically, but there’s also a certain pathos to it, a sort of Freudian projection that I found compelling.”  And you could ask Bay, “So what’d she say?”  And Michael Bay would be like, “She said I’m awesome.”
