Mention even the name of Michael Bay and you're bound to get endless internet nerd rage. He's only producing this movie and people are crying about it.

Even ignoring the fact that Michael Bay has made some decent movies and the fact that a lot of his movies have been met with great box-office success, there's nothing to cry about here because he's not directing this movie.

What decent movies has he made outside of The Rock??? And I believe that was his VERY first movie as well. He destroyed Pearl Harbor

Well since he is just a producer for Ninja Turtles, he's got quite of list movies where he was a producer.

Also, the Rock wasn't his first movie. Bad Boys was. I didn't like it, but many people do. Same with the sequel. I also think the Island was pretty good. Hell, Transformers, IMO, were popcorn fun. They weren't amazing movies, but they were visually stunning and fun enough to waste 1 1/2 hours on.

Bay definitely isn't one of my favourites, but he's better than a lot of other guys.

I agree with those who are not attacking Michael Bay. Sure, he's not making Oscar winners, but his movies are entertaining more often than not. Of the movies he's directed, Pearl Harbor was the least enjoyable and I don't put all the blame on him for it. Some of the blame has to go on the writers and producers gave Bay a script and story that went in too many directions. If they had chosen between the love story and the buddy story, it might have been a solid movie.

Counting produced movies or no?

Both Bad Boys movies were good action flicks with the first one being superior to the second for me (and they were both relatively popular and met with box-office success), The Rock was a pretty great movie (I'm not sure how well that did at the box-office), I like The Island and I know it's a hit-or-miss movie for most people (also not sure how it did in the box-office), I really liked the first Transformers movie and although the second was a huge disappointment it still had some terrific CGI and action (and both were massive box-office successes).

Other then all of that, I can't think of anything I've liked from him. Then again, that's a large portion of his directorial work right there. Armageddon was a huge box-office success from what I recall even though I hated it. I'm not sure how well Pearl Harbor was received (I hate that movie as well).

Going by the list natey provided above you, that's over a third of the movies he has directed.

Yeah and I agree with you on the first Transformers. During the second one all I was doing was waiting for it to end but it seemed like it never would.

It's just fun to rag on Bay for explosions but as I said earlier I did enjoy some of his movies.

Unless there are lots of exploding blood packets and impelled Foot Clan soldiers like the original comic, I'm not interested.

The 1980's cartoon TMNT > any other TMNT.

Ya I misreaed that he is just the producer and not the director part. I liked Bad Boys II more than I for some reason. Probably because it involved a Ferrari for all I know. Just wasn't that into the plot in the first one.

OK, so I've really been back on the TMNT wagon after coming across some KICK ASS wallpapers in which they're portrayed as the dark and gritty.

Now I'm not saying that it should go that way because I feel all super-hero movies should be that. But the original comics were kind of dark.

They've hired a director who's movies are generally PG13 to Rated R, so, in that vein, they're on the right track, IMO.

So what exactly would I like to see?

Well, not an origin movie, we all know they were mutated by ooze, maybe in the opening credits show the mutation, and Splinter finding the Turtles, much like, the opening for the cartoon show back in 87.

I'd like to see The Shredder as the bad guy, obviously and I'd like the Turtles to hold nothing back. Allow for a few dialogue quips here and there, but don't make it camp. Have the Turtles be viewed as a menace to society, where they're feared by the general public, but, they have no equals in combat, they can fight anyone thrown at them, EXCEPT the Shredder, who is merciless and is taking NY by storm.

That's when Splinter comes in to help. When I go back and look at it, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 1990 was pretty much how it should go this time. Change up a bit of it, and go with the CGI/Human crossover for the turtles like they do with the ape in Rise of the Apes and King Kong. I think that's the best way to do it.

Thoughts?

EDIT: Oh wait... He's just producing, and isn't one of the only producers. Phew. If he was the director/writer, then I'd be ******** my pants.

I wonder if the bad-ass hockey player Casey Jones will be in this?

Also, will they still be indecisive as to whether Baxter Stockman will be black or white like they were in the previous cartoons?

I always found it funny that Bay went from working on movies like Raiders of The Lost Ark and Playboy movies to directing Pearl Harbor. you would have thought a little bit of Spielberg would have rubbed off on him. Then again with a quote like this:

I'm a big fan of the 90s trilogy and those movies were my childhood but I'm not gonna act like a senile old man and be against this reboot. There's new technology and learn to love it. The Turtles in the trilogy looked like Al Harrington, the basketball player.

Best quote.

He's like this cross between General Patton and Willy Wonka. He's in command of a massive army, all in the effort to create the ultimate Everlasting Gobstopper.

Not a FAN of Bay but his films are entertaining. so nothing particularly against him. Armageddon wasn't that bad and I really like The Island.

Was it the thing with HFBoards and Michael Bay. You have to hate Michael Bay to be cool? His movies make millions at the box office, so I guess he isn't that bad.

Michael Bay considered directing Phone Booth. When he met with the writer and producers, the first thing he asked was "How can we get him out of the phone booth?"
