Trans­form­ers’ Bay bares all

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Michael Bay has ex­plained why Trans­form­ers 2: Re­venge of the Fallen was so un­speak­ably ghastly. “Did he just look in the mir­ror?” I hear you say. Don’t be so dis­re­spect­ful. Talk­ing to Em­pire, Bay, di­rec­tor of the first two films in the fran­chise, put the blame on the writers’ strike that raged in 2007 and 2008.

“When I look back at it, that was crap,” he re­marked (ac­cu­rately) of the film. “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.”

Okay, so how come Pearl Har­bor, Ar­maged­don, Bad Boys II and The Is­land were all so lousy as well. Huh? Trans­form­ers 3: Dark of the Moon is re­leased in the sum­mer and it’s bound to be great.
