First the good news: Apparently there’s been talk of a live-action Transformers movie for some time now, though I hadn’t heard of it until today. The technology is certainly up to it; you’ve all seen the CitroÃƒÂ«n C4 ad [4.7MB MPEG]. Unfortunately the director may not be as good as you would hope. You see the bad news is that Michael Bay is being considered. In the words of Trey Parker, "why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?"
The even worse news is the sudden demise of Optimus Prime to prostate cancer. So Optimus, what I’m trying to say is Pearl Harbor sucked, and I miss you.
