    Default Michael Bay documentary

    Would anybody else like to see Michael Bay make a documentary? Some of the visuals/cinematography in documentaries are breathtaking. It would be cool if he found a great real life story and make a film about it.
    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...

    I dare you to post that, and then I'll respond accordingly.

    "Red rover, red rover, send Bay right over?" I'm thinking no. Such an event might just be a the last bit of too much testosterone for Iraq to handle -- it'd implode, and that part of the world has too many problems as is.

    EDIT: Oh dear, looks like that part of the world is in for some implosions... or something: Paramount-DreamWorks has inked with the Jordanian Royal Film Commission to film “Transformers 2” in the country

    Question is Red, will Paramount be conking him on the head? I think not. Dragging him up the plane's steps with golden handcuffs more likely.

    I keep waiting for that to get shot down as false conjecture, but it probably won't be. Shooting TF2 in Jordan boggles my mind for more reasons than I care to discuss in public. But, on the other hand, I do appreciate the authenticity behind it. It does make sense to shoot a globally-minded film on location. The Bourne movies made a lot of hay filming in the real locations Jason was running around in.

    There is one already. It's called "The Directors." It was shown on Encore.

    Nope. I looked thru Amazon and Barnes and Nobles and didn't find anything. I found an author named Michael Baye as well as a book titled 501 Movie Directors. But nothing else.

Additionally, an original one-hour special "The Directors: Best Moments" will be presented this December looking back at highlights from the first five years of the series. The special will feature selected interviews with directors and talent and will be hosted by renowned film critic and historian Leonard Maltin. Directors such as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Oliver Stone, Spike Lee, George Lucas, and...
    I think they were more or less looking for a book, and not so much a tv show.

    Nelson, I think, is referring to the show called "The Directors" which had an episode with Michael in 2002 I believe. Those shows usually ran an hour, and featured interviews with actors and producers the director had worked with. I believe Jon Voight, Martin Lawrence, Alec Baldwin and someone else talked in the one for Bay. I've always wanted to see that episode. I've seen a couple of them; Spielberg, Tony Scott, Ridley Scott and although it just touches on the surface it's a pretty entertaining show.

    Hey, if anyone have the Bay one.... upload it somewhere

    The only documentary that ever managed to hold my attention from beginning to end was GRIZZLY MAN. Everything else just makes me go to bed earlier.
