Michael Bay Angry at Paramount's Dumping of Blu-ray

Illustration for article titled Michael Bay Angry at Paramount's Dumping of Blu-ray

Paramount and Dreamworks Animation's decision to go exclusively HD DVD and even up the Blu-ray vs. HD DVD war has pissed off Transformers director Michael Bay. There's seriously urine all over the place. This is what he said in a post on his own forum:

I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks! They were progressive by having two formats.


And the kicker.

. No Transformers 2 for me!

Ouch. That's rough. But he does have a point. Why lock out people who have Blu-ray? Oh, right, money. Because HD DVD paid quite a lot for the two studios' exclusivity. [Shoot For the Edit]


@phi: @Worf: I don't understand why people think that Speilberg would do a better job, when the last good things he did was Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan. Let's be serious, Minority report was a good looking film, Minority Report, same story, style, no substance. I would like to see people start to look broader in terms of who is they think should be "allowed" to direct what That's why I think someone like Spike Lee would make things interesting. David Fincher, perhaps. Hell, give M. Night Shamalyan a shot (thought he is on serious probation)
