Following hot on the heels of The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick’s letter to projectionists, popcorn salesman/babysitter Michael Bay has put crayon to paper concerning his thoughts on the 3-D presentation of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

The following decree, issued on Paramount letterhead, was re-printed on Hollywood Deadline:


Before firing off a missive on visual presentation, it might help if Bay (Bad Boys, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) first gave us something worth looking at.

And just what exactly does he want his audience to believe again? That for the third time in a row he can accept credit for a film in which Hasbro is the reel auteur?

So just because YOU don't like his movies, you think he has no right to ask that they be presented properly?

How much money have YOUR movies made?

I don't care for Bay's movies, either, nor those of Bruckheimer or Tarantino or anything else featuring action (violence) or comic book stuff. But obviously enough other people do, or he wouldn't be asked to make another one.

Bad presentation at the movies is a real issue, and ANYONE who might have any influence should be applauded for asking that exhibitors not cheap-out on delivering the product.

You seem far more inclined to gripe about things than offer anything constructive. Maybe before you pick up your own crayon, you might reconsider the wisdom of throwing rocks from a glass house.

"Let's make the audience believe again" is almost as good as "Movies, now more than ever" from The Player.
