Michael Bay Praises Blu-ray's Success

When Paramount Home Entertainment decided to support HD DVD exclusively, Michael Bay was vocally opposed. Since the decision came just as his Transformers would debut on high-definition home video, Bay threatened to back out of the sequel.

He took back his drastic comments and is hard at work developing Transformers 2, but now that Blu-ray is the format that is gaining momentum, Bay cannot help but remind us he told us so.

"Blu-ray's better, and I told everyone," Bay said at the Visual Effects Society's sixth annual award show, where he presented the award for animated character in a motion picture. "I was very vocal about it. I knew HD [DVD] was not going to make it."

All I want is Transformer on Blu-ray. That isn't too much to as is it?

I dont blame you, as soon as I watched this movie in the theater first thought was I bet this is going to rock on blu-ray. But of course paramount decided to go against the grain and choose the loosing format... I wonder what the headlines will say when paramount finally decides to realease on blu-ray. "We always had a feeling that blu-ray was the superior format. But at the time we felt our best interest lay in the hd-dvd format." HaHa more like our interest layed in bill gates pockets and how much we could milk him for to prolong the hd format war.....

The only Michael Bay movie worth watching, IMO, is The Rock, and that is already out on Blu-ray. Great release too. Good PQ, AQ, and some very nice special features.

I didn't know he did the Rock, if so then thats my second favorite Bay movie besides Transformers.

He has no reason to be a fanboy or to be invested in Blu-ray as he worked with Paramount. I hope the fvcktard that delayed the end of the format war and made paramount not release on Blu-ray gets a serious scolding from his superiors, whoever they are.

LAME. Bay= epic failure.

Armageddon, Bad Boys, Bad Boys 2, Pearl Harbor, The Island, The Rock, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Transformers would like to have a word with you.

If your going to call a Director/Producer an "EPIC failure" try to pick one that who's movies haven't made millions of dollars and weren't box office hits. You look smarter if you follow my advice.

LOL thanks for proving my point. The Rock was the only semi-good movie in that list of garbage. Your crappy advice isn't looking so good, i'll pass.

*btw, he didn't direct TCM*

Transformers might-or might not- be a good movie, but we owe it to ourselves to watch this beauty on High Definition and at least a 5.1 sound system.

TheHater3756d ago

I have to agree with you. I grew up watching Transformer, and it something I would like to own in my collection. Not because it a good or bad movie, but because it part of my childhood.

I felt the same sense of nostalgia when I went to see the movie, and as a result my disappointment with the movie is multiplied. Michael Bay and the writers of Transformers forgot that we didn't want to see Shia or Megan Fox for 60% of the movie, even though Fox is decent eye candy. We wanted to fvcking see Optimus kick Megatron's ass, and we didn't even see that. Hell, Optimus's memorable "One shall stand, one shall fall" was offscreen! None of the Autobots were developed well, and none of the Decepticons had any character development.
