“There are tons of people [who] hate me and hate my movies. But hey, my movies have made a lot of money, two-something billion dollars. That’s a lot of tickets. They said that I wrecked cinema. They said that I cut too fast and now you see it in movies everywhere. It’s easy to bash a movie but until they know hard it is to actually make one. Do I take pride in people knowing my style? I think it’s nice people know a director has a style. And you can reinvent yourself too.” — Michael Bay talking to MTV.com’s Josh Horowitz about Transformers.
