Michael Bay Speaks Out – UPDATED

Michael Bay Speaks Out – UPDATED

Again


Remember all the puff & bluster that came out of Michael Bay’s mouth when Paramount decided to go HD-DVD exclusive, including his blockbuster “Transformers”? Remember how he kind of tempered his words the following day when it spread across the net and basically said he was swept up in the heat of the moment?

Well, today he’s at it again. Responding to poster “Beadle”, and his issues with HD-DVD, Bay once again let his true feelings fly:

“What you don’t understand is corporate politics. Microsoft wants both formats to fail so they can be heroes and make the world move to digital downloads. That is the dirty secret no one is talking about. That is why Microsoft is handing out $100 million dollar checks to studios just embrace the HD DVD and not the leading, and superior Blu Ray. They want confusion in the market until they perfect the digital downloads. Time will tell and you will see the truth.

Bay”

So – Spielberg can demand that his flicks are released on Blu-Ray through the Paramount / DreamWorks banner, but Bay can’t ask for the same conditions? Interesting…..

***UPDATE***
Good grief, I don’t know if anyone else cares about it, but I love this kind of stuff when celebs just start arcing up in public forums – Michael’s message boards are erupting with flaming wars at the moment, but he’s again chosen to speak his mind on the whole situation:

“Does anyone out here want to challenge what I feel suits my films better in terms of look. I see every frame of my films over a hundred times before it is ever released. I know the lighting conditions I shot it and the result on the DI. I know the range. I know what the final product should look like – Blu Ray suits my films better. But that said – I don’t a care about this format war because I have both formats in my screening room – I’m just filling you in on what people deep in the film industry feel ultimately is going on –

Transformers looks great even in DVD!!”
