'Transformers' Ripoff? Michael Bay Cribs Shot From Bad Michael Bay Movie for Use In Bad Michael Bay Movieby: Posted:
Really, Michael Bay? Really? In the incredulous words of “White Collar” favorite Mozzie, "seriously?"
This surpasses phoned-in. This isn’t even faxed-in. This is e-mailed. Tweeted, even.
But first, let’s congratulate the easily amused man-child on “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” garnering not only reviews that are only marginally better than the last “Transformers” movie but on “Dark Of The Moon” having the third biggest all-time worldwide opening gross.
Thanks, everybody. You just guaranteed a fourth movie.
That being said, observe the below video.
Your favorite ADD-addled director lifted a shot directly from one of his own movies, the equally awful “The Island,” and dumped it straight into “Dark Of The Moon.”
He didn’t re-shoot it. He didn’t copy it. “The Island” didn’t inspire the shot. Copy and paste.
I consider this an admission of guilt: Bay acknowledges with this that he knows so few people saw “The Island,” that nobody would notice.
Watch the video evidence below and let us know, do you feel cheated?
