    What is your least favorite Michael Bay film?

    The Rock and the first Bad Boys kick too much ass.
    So I'm gonna have to say Transformers. It was a fun experience but some of the silliness brings it down below the above two.

    Most people will probably say Pearl Harbor but I never saw it so I can't comment.
    Armageddon was incredible!

    Positive thread
    I've always defended Michael Bay against attacks that his films are full of stupid explosions, girls in underwear and mindless characters... but then he made Transformers 2 and I conceded...

    Don't we have a thread like this already?

    Anyway, Pearl Harbor. But fuck, I'm already starting to get nostalgic about that one. I was 13 when it came out, and of course loved it. Now I'm aware the movie has huge flaws, but I wouldn't go as far as saying I hate it. When it's actually about the title subject it's pretty good.

    Umm.....to be perfectly honest, I have not watched Pearl Harbor in an oh soooo very long time. I do have the DVD somewhere....got it for Christmas.

    I seriously think my dad bought it for me because I was on a Josh Hartnett high.

    But I really wasn't. Honest.
    I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't know what I'd do if I caught one. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer.

    I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

    I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

    Yup. I really should be finishing up my section, but I'm avoiding it.

    It shouldn't take me long anywhoos.

    I got a pile of stuff, but I'm pretty much done.

    I am very appreciative of this message board being in a very passive,
    professional grey tone. I can just browse and it looks like a professional
    web page. If this board was all blasting with colors and a giant smiling
    Michael Bay face in the background or something I don't think I could get away with it lol.


    Not that I'm not allowed to be browsing,
    but it wouldn't look as good, you know?

    I loved Pearl Harbor and Transformers..

    I'm going to have to say Armageddon. Just didn't care for it. That plus there were numerous other movies coming out with the same plot.. Were all gonna die.. the worlds gonna end.. bleh..

    People say they didn't like the love triangle involved. If it was all about just the war.. it'd be a military news report.. not a movie. The dialogue and relations involved made it a movie IMO.

    I think Pearl Harbor is a masterpiece.
    Shoot for the impossible...
    ...Then do it.

    I really don't think there counting his production company's films, because, well there not counting them because they're not his films.

    Wait...what? Saving Private Ryan had a love triangle?

    Did you watch the same movie I did? LOL

    I thought it was about a family, the Ryans, who had many sons in the war, and all of them but Matt Damon's character died and Tom Hanks character and crew was sent on a rescue mission.

    *shrug*

    sorry Ms. Bee, i sometimes feel my sarcasm is obvious when, in fact, it isn't. I was telling Goodspeed <who has since edited his post>, who seems to think the love triangle was somehow...neccesary to the film... that one of the greatest war films of all time, that being Saving Pvt. Ryan, had NO love story to speak of, and easily accomplishes things that Bay's travesty of a film, Pearl Harbor, would NEVER of gotten even CLOSE to achieveing. Did i clear it up or make it worse?

    Pearl was amazing haters can go die, honestly i love every single Bay movie otherwise i wouldnt be on this forum dumbasses...
    LOL. WOW, that must mean that EVERY single one of us has to LOVE ALL of his films........or there's no point for us to be on a board discussing his films? I'm sorry, but it's fair to say this board is evenly divided between those that abhor Pearl Harbor <rightfully so> and those that mistakenly throw the word "masterpiece!" around when refering to PH. Honestly, i can't even say evenly divided, i feel the majority of posters here, as far as i can tell, dislike PH. Regardless, i wouldn't ever tell someone to go die because their opinion differs from mine.

    I'd recommend seeing it before writing it off. I thought it followed the trend of remakes surpassing the original. I thought is was excellent.

    well then you clearly have no sense of plot and storyline... the world is not all about explosions and violence.
