Michael Bay Is Totally Okay With People Hating His Transformers Movies

Despite the huge amounts of money they make, there's a subsection of fans who don't care very much for Michael Bay's Transformers movies. If you've read ComicBook.com's review of Transformers: Age of Extinction, you know I'm one of them.

None of that phases Bay, it seems. In fact, he told MTV he thinks it's a good thing.

"They love to hate, and I don't care; let them hate," Bay said. "They're still going to see the movie! I think it's good to get a little tension. Very good. I used to get bothered by it, but I think it's good to get the dialogue going. It makes me think, and it keeps me on my toes, so it's good."

So as long you're paying ticket price, Bay welcomes you to engage in "dialogue" all you want. Bay stands to potentially prod the fanboy beast even further with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is producing. We'll have to wait and see what kind of dialogue comes from that movie.


Transformers: Age of Extinction is now playing in theaters.
