All the stories you've heard about a Michael Bay film set are true. It's fast, loud, intense and frankly, it's kind of amazing. Six cameras shoot simultaneously, ranging from 2D to IMAX 3D. Dozens of real Navy SEALS pour out of a crashed ship. Hundreds of live rounds are being fired. Several massive explosions go off. All on behalf of Transformers: The Last Knight.

Video: A few months ago, it was reported that Michael Bay cast a poor shelter pup named Freya in the fifth Transformers movie, after reading about her in a UK newspaper. Now the film has released a whole featurette about her starring role, which will no doubt be as exciting as Optimus fighting a dragon and whatever other shenanigans will go on in the film.
This past Thursday, director Michael Bay introduced a new robot that will be joining his upcoming Transformers movie, The Last Knight. Some fans were quite upset at the addition of this tiny, goofy-looking Autobot to the Transformer movie pantheon, and I have a question for those fans: Really? (I also have a follow-up question: Really?!)
Michael Bay has a bad habit of seeing something — in a newspaper, on TV, whatever — and suddenly deciding that something needs to go in his next movie, regardless of whether it makes sense or not. For instance, after watching a 60 Minutes segment on wingsuits, Bay forced a lengthy scene featuring them in Transformers 3. Now he's done it again, but with a much happier result.
Video: Instead of making the Marky Mark Transformers sequel, Michael Bay should have just sent in this sick, non-stop supercut of every single robot fight scene from the Transformers trilogy to theatres. Yep. This video is an orgy of explosive metal on metal battle scenes without any of the pesky humans screwing it up. I would love to see this IMAX.
I love Transformers. I don't mean the toys, the cartoons, the comics, any of that stuff. I mean the new Transformers, the Michael Bay Transformers. I know this is an unpopular opinion. But as far as I'm concerned, Transformers first came to life in Michael Bay's series. And it is therefore the best Transformers until something better comes along to replace it.
Video: Whoops. Looks like Michael Bay isn't the only one who is allergic to a dodgy autocue. Apparent celebrity Kendall Jenner just borked her lines at the Billboard Music awards, blaming the autocue and the fact that she's "bad at reading". Hoo boy.
Ask someone here in Vegas about what they've liked at CES this year and you'll probably only hear two words: Michael Bay. He stormed off stage during a Samsung press conference, and now he's briefly explained why.
