Director Michael Bay: ‘The Rock’ and ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’

- Advertisement -

Over the past weekend, Michael Bay’s latest volley of testosterone, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, raked in over $400 million worldwide – so what can three puny humans possibly have to say about it? Plenty, as it turns out – Rick, Derek and Justine take on the third film of Bay’s ever-ballooning franchise, as well as his 1996 “opus” The Rock, which you can find in a deluxe Criterion edition. Expect lots of trenchant discussion of the state of film criticism. And explosions. And psychoanalysis. And giggling.

    I agree with Justine too. Megan Fox at least has charisma and in the right role can probably be really good.

    I am not alone :)

    I also agree with Justine and the above commenter. I think at this point Michael Mann, De Palma, Herzog and Von Trier are the only good directors who would use actors that aren’t respected. I think she has enough style to fit quite nicely in a MM or De Palma film. Is Rivette that crazy? I think he might be.

    I’m with Justine on Megan Fox’s future. I wouldn’t bet my salary on it, but I also wouldn’t be too surprised if she comes out in some respected art movie in a few years.
