To be honest, as with most sequels, they will probably go with a cheaper director anyway. This isn't the sort of movie like "Lord of the Rings" or "Bourne" where people would continue to flock to theaters to see the story continue to unfold.

And even Bourne had different directors for Identity and Supremacy/Ultimatum.

Probably why I disliked everyone of them since the original.

And I think Transformers made enough to warrent Bays return for a sequal.

I'll buy into a high def optical player when they go both ways like the DVD-R DVD+R fiasco.

And BTW, **** Michael Bay. The next guy will do it better.

I was banned for 2 days and could have posted over 3 weeks ago, I just hadn't seen a post idiotic enough yet. Yours won. Interesting you couldn't counter a single one of my points.

Stop being so ugly and nasty, being hateful is not good. Not everyone believes in the things you do so accept that and learn patience, tolerance and manners.

But I love you Mike! His post had no manners and was a jab.

Bay is full of BLEEP!!

Paramount will flash the cash and he will be right there filming his butt off.

He's just out for the attention.

I think I'll just get the pioneer Blu Ray drive and get Shrek 3 and Transformers on standard DVD. Format war is bad news for noobs like me.

If you really want the lesser of the two, at least wait for a player that will work with BD+. It still isn't "ready". I would not recommend the Pioneer.

That's right, didn't they change the spec of BD and still haven't settled on one?

Who knows what revision it's on now. BD is a huge mess. It still isn't ready for release. The only reason it's here is because of pressure from the HD DVD launch ( of fully functional players for a fully functional format ) and the PS3 turd that launched last year.
