Even Director Michael Bay Says Transformers 2 Was Crap!!

Whoa!

Those are some pretty harsh words for your own movie!

Director Michael Bay slammed his own movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, calling it "crap" and blaming it on the writer's strike.

He admits that "they made some mistakes" while filming and "the real fault is that it ran into a mystical world."

He goes on:

"When I look back at it, that was crap. The writers' strike was coming hard and fast. It was just terrible to do a movie where you've got to have a story in three weeks.

I was prepping a movie for months where I only had 14 pages of some idea of what the movie was. It's a BS way to make a movie, do you know what I'm saying?"

This pretty much mirrors what Shia LaBeouf said when he saw the finished product. He told reporters:

"When I saw the second movie, I wasn't impressed with what we did. There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone."

Yikes!! At least both the director and star agree.

That means expectations will be really high for Transformers 3.

Do U think those expectations will be met??

Michael Bay Admits Failure With Transformers 2, Says He's Done After Part 3

michael bay says transformers 2 was failure and hes done after 3

This is impressive, Michael. Makes us feel MUCH better about the new astronaut Transformers movie.

During an interview, Michael Bay admitted that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen failed in certain ways. Here's what he had to say about it:

"We tried to learn from the second movie. On the second movie we got burned. We had a writers strike, we had to agree on a story in three weeks, and then we knew they were going on strike. It was a f***ed scenario all the way around; it wasn't fair to the writer; it wasn't fair to me; it wasn't fair to anybody. It was still an entertaining movie, but I think we failed on certain aspects. What we did with this movie is I think we have a much better script, and we got back to basics. … It's more serious. I got rid of the dorky comedy; I mean we've got two little characters, that's it, but the dorkiness is not there. Dork-free Transformers. It's much more serious. It's still entertaining; it's big looking."

And here's Michael on the future of the Transformers franchise:

"I think this has gotta be it. I think someone else will take the torch from here. … It's just that I don't think you could do it again with Shia [LaBeouf] and everybody, I think it's time to move on."

All sounds good to us, Michael! We think you're making the right moves.

What do U think of Michael Bay's Transformers comments?

Shia Promises Us That Transformers 3 Doesn't Suck Is The Best Of One Yet

Filed under: Film FlickersShia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf has got a SERIOUS hard-on for Transformers 3. All we're saying is we wouldn't want to leave him alone in a screening room with the movie without some form of supervision or cleaning supplies.

Here's some of the overwhelmingly positive things Shia's had to say about the newest Transformers movie:

"This is, and I'm not just BS-ing you, it's the best movie we've made of the three by far."

Well, it couldn't be any worse than the unwatchable part 2. More from Shia:

"The script is the best script we've had. The second movie, we were in the middle of a writers' strike, writing on the go. The first movie, we had the discovery, and this movie really is the fruition of the rhythm we've created out of five years working together. I'm super proud of this movie."

And more from Shia:

"There's no more for me, at least. I'm never going to do it again. This is the last one, so it's balls-out. This is the best movie we've made, period, and that's a unanimous decision by everybody. The sizzle reel that [Bay] has been showing everybody on set, it's so outrageous. I'm very, very, very, very proud of it."

And even more from Shia:

"I've seen about 10 minutes of it — just the stuff we shot in Chicago — and it's pretty awesome. It's all in Michael Bay's head, so you never know what the film's going to turn out like, but judging by the script and what we've shot, it's, I think, every bit as good, if not better than, the first two."

Wait a second Shia…you said it was BETTER than the first two! If it's only "every bit as good" as the first two, that doesn't help. Part 2 was unwatchable. Get your story straight, LaBeouf!

Are U willing to give the Transformers series another try?
