TF5: The Last Knight

Money, violence, sex, computer graphics, scatalogical humor, racism, robots designed to be rednecks but given European accents, and maybe another sequel to the saga... what's not to love? TF m1, Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon and now Age of Extinction.

(Say what we might about his movies, but Bay himself cannot be all bad.)
Something something Hitler dogs.

No, I'll do even one better, he treats this dog FAR better than he treats the people in his movies (to say nothing of his audiences), the way he treated Megan Fox in her audition phase was grotesque and dehumanizing.

Bay has worsened the quality of an entire artistic entertainment medium through his soulless hackery.

And, in closing...

Seriously?

Really?

Wow.

And, other people who work for Bay view him favourably. Bay and Fox have heat. Whatever. Celebrity drama.

Bay does not mistreat his audiences because they opt in.

By the time that third TF movie dropped, I conceded any right to complain about the movie that I bought a ticket for because I damned well knew what I was buying in for.


Ya know what, I hate Geoff Johns' comics. I avoid them like the plague they are. But, I am not going to say that Johns beats his wife and fucks dogs. If Johns did something legitimately meritorious, I would try to put a sinister spin on it because.....well that would just be an asshole thing to do.

Money talks. But make no pretense about it, he made an aspiring actress strip down to short shorts and clean his Ferrari in order to get a starring role. Might as well have had her suck his dick in front of the whole crew.

That was a decade ago. I did things a decade ago that I'm not proud of--shit, I did things this week I'm not proud of. And if anything, Bay's views on women seem like they come from a place of societal ignorance rather than out and out maliciousness.

Have you seen anything resembling GROWTH from him, for example coming out of his artistic merits? I haven't. And he keeps saying he doesn't want to do these movies, yet keeps coming back to them. A decade ago you were a teenager, of course change came easily to you. Bay is a 51 year old man, the changes to that from a 41 year old man aren't nearly as extreme usually. I feel like you're projecting onto Bay because he makes movies you like, I'm not seeing one shred of evidence that he's changed.

That looks pretty good. It doesn't tell us much about the plot, but what we got is interesting.
