The Movie Armageddon that is,we can blame him for the real Armageddon if it ever happens as well if you want

I personally feel he should apologize and walk on his knees for the rest of his life for Transformers 2,nothing in his career has come close to being as dogshit as that film

(although to be fair i have never seen Pearl Harbour)

Vulture

Quote
“I will apologize for Armageddon."  He explained: "We had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked ‘What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?’ But the movie did fine.” Sure, blaming the studio isn’t the most humble move, but it’s a start. (Spoiler alert for this next sentence, just in case you somehow haven’t seen Armageddon by now.) Bay did not confirm if redoing the third act meant having Optimus Prime swoop in to save a tearful Bruce Willis, but what else could he have meant?

Armageddon was fine.  It's everything he did after that he needs to apologize for.

I have long held the opinion that Armageddon is the worst movie ever made when considered from a budget to quality perspective. This only serves to validate that opinion.

“One press writer has gone too far in reporting false information. He has printed the bare minimum of my statement which in effect have twisted my words and meaning. I’m not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career, a film called Armageddon. On the red carpet for Pain & Gain some reporters asked me what are you apologizing for, and I said what on earth are you talking about?
What I clearly said to the reporter, is I wish I had more time to edit the film, specifically the third act. He asked me in effect what would you change if you could in your movies if you could go back. I said, I wish we had a few more weeks in the edit room on Armageddon. And still today Armageddon, is still one of the most shown movies on cable TV. And yes, I’m proud of the movie. Enough said.
Michael”

Yeah, MIchael Bay is an impostor. Who does he think he's fooling, what with using the capital I in his first name like that?!

I'm completely the opposite. Liked Deep Impact and hated Armageddon. I would've walked out on Armageddon if my friend hadn't been my ride.
