Michael Bay Calls "Pacific Rim" a "Transformers" Rip-Off, Guillermo Del Toro Responds

Posted: April 19th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Bay Calls "Pacific Rim" a "Transformers" Rip-Off, Guillermo Del Toro RespondsSubmit Comment
During CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Michael Bay made an appearance to promote his upcoming "Pain and Gain" movie. He also spoke about his "Transformers" movies and how there are movies out there that are "robot rip-off" films.

While he didn't specifically name Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" as one of those movies, but Del Toro sure felt like Bay was calling his film a "Transformers" rip-off. As a result, he decided to retaliate.

"We are far, far far away from that in a very willing fashion. For good or bad, this is my movie. This is my universe and my creation, and I do not create through comparison," said Del Toro. "The fights don't occur in well-lit, super cool, car commercial-looking environments. They occur in the middle of a raging sea storm or in a savage snow storm. They happen in a universe that is incredibly saturated."

If Michael Bay didn't directly say that Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" is a rip off of Transformers, THEN WHY DOES THE f*ckING TITLE OF THE ARTICLE SAY HE DOES?

Thank you Michael Bay for creating Transformers.
Ah wait, he didn't. Go f*ck yourself, Bay. Let the fatman geek win some money.

So Bay doesn't even mention Pacific Rim, yet the article claims Bay specifically mentioned del Toro's film?

You're a master of bullsh*t, Alex.

True, Minkowski but what other current film that f*cker coud have been refering to? Also, Bay already did this before with that McGee loser.
minkowski writes:
on April 18th, 2013 at 10:02:38 PM

^^Well, my first thought was Battlesh*t. Yeah, I know it had aliens in mech suits, but for most of the film they looked like robots.

f*ck Bay anyway. Pacific Rim is going to have what no Bay film has ever really had, not in the last ten years anyway: story!

@Deaft0ne: At least Alex Jones's claim of lizard people living under Denver is a hell of a lot more inventive than anything our Alex has ever written.

Del Toro's comment seems like it stemmed from someone (probably some sh*t starting reporter) mentioning what Michael Bay said and asking what he (Del Toro) thinks about the comparison.

Yee-ha! We got us a good old-fashioned fight between directors! The Bull VS. The Hack. Get that motherf*cker, Guillermo! Impale dat sombitch with your horns! Or at least drown him in what I can only imagine to be a giant bullsh*t, judging by your large girth.

Lol yeah, imagine Del Toro responding: Transformers? Oh no, my movie is different, you see, my movie is Good.

What else is a ripoff to you, Mr. Bay?
Was Citizen Kane a ripoff of Face/Off?
Was Star Wars a ripoff of Armageddon?
Was Apocalypse Now a ripoff of Tropic Thunder?
Damn fool. Damn, damn fool. I'm pretty sure a fresh log out of a Moose's anus has more use on this planet than you.

Whether or not Bay was referring to Del Toro's work he is the inferior film maker. Period.

Michael Bay can't compare himself to Del Toro. Doing it so is...retarded, just like his movies.

I told you people, a LONG time ago, about that scene in Transformers, the first one, with the letters "T2H8" stenciled on a door, right? And this was after Bay said his Transformers movies would rival and perhaps even exceed Cameron's Terminator flicks, especially Terminator 2. Think the faggot mentioned it by name.

Must be a total coincidence, right?

Bay is a f*cking arrogant c*cksucker. Sure he shoots action like no one's business, but that's ALL he can do.

Oh cram it bay. Your originality died when you paid affleck to replace his teeth with vineers. Everybody had seen good will hunting. No way in hell that was naturally occuring

Pain and Gain
makes light of a double murder and attempted murder while portraying the three main characters as heroes in the adverts
