    Default Greetings

    Hello everybody,
    I have been registered right now for these forums. I'm an amateur shortfilms-maker and I like very much action movies so I think that this is a good web site to speak about it and find people with similar interests.
    See you.

    some new faces (user names), but it is so nice to see the classic.

    oh, and armageddon I guess I'll consider you a classic even if you did have a bit of a "name-lift"

    New member here, hey.
    I'm from France and I've been a fan of Mr. Bay ever since The Rock. Though I had seen Bad Boys in theaters the year before, The Rock was the one that got me crazy about his vision.
    I'm a 24-year old aspiring director and as many frustrated wannabes (), I currently write reviews for a french website (http://www.filmdeculte.com/).
    Amongst other things, I'm their designated Michael Bay guy and I've been defending him now on that site since 2003 when I first wrote the review for Bad Boys II.
    I also wrote a "portrait" of sorts, kinda looking back on his films, his carrer, how his style evolved and everything...I'm sorry, it's in french but here's the link if there are french-speaking members here who'd like to check it out :
    http://www.filmdeculte.com/coupdeprojo/bay.php

    You'll see I'm quite the Bay enthusiast...
    Just so you can get where I stand on his movies from the get-go, here's my Top 7 :
    1. The Rock
    2. The Island
    3. Armageddon
    4. Transformers
    5. Bad Boys II
    6. Bad Boys
    7. Pearl Harbor

    The first two are, to me, perfect films. I wouldn't take a thing out of them (well maybe a joke or a helicopter shot from The Island ).
    Number 3 and 4 are just great entertainment cinema with some of the most powerful sequences in his carrer, where some shots just become fucking ICONIC IMAGES (the whole sequence leading up to the launch in Armageddon with the Presiden'ts speech and the arrival of the Autobots in Transformers both get me in tears every time I watch them).
    As for the Bad Boys movies, I thought the first one was a hell of way to burst onto the scene (and still contains what might be my favorite of all the "signature Bay shots") and the second one, while a bit too much, was just insanely fun (I mean, the chase with the corpses and shit, it's so crazy it's genius!!!).
    Pearl Harbor. Maybe the greatest action sequence Bay's ever directed is the attack scene...it's just as masterpiece, a lesson in moviemaking in the display of mayhem. But everything else, while exceptionally pretty-looking (I could just take any shot and make it a beautiful wallpaper for my computer screen), felt a little too "cliché" for me...

    ANYWAY...I know this was a long-ass message, I just hoped I could cram as much information about me and my taste regarding Michael Bay's cinema in a post as to get "on page" with some of the older members here.

    I'll shut up now.
