    Season 6 of ERB is coming in Spring 2019. Which movie directors, actors or characters are worthy of being in a rap battle? Who do you really 'need' to see in an ERB!?

                          The only thing wrong with this is the whole working solo thing from Bay since ya know Spielberg is the executive producer for the entire transformers franchise lol.

                            Thinking of all the great people who are dead, it makes me happy that steven spielberg is still alive, Its very sad though, Stan Lee, Jim Henson, David Bowie, Robin Williams, its just soo sad, but thats how it works.

                                It was 7/17/19 that I realize Spielberg has an E.T. finger glow at 0:06.

                                  You can love or hate Michael Bay, but you can't deny he had the best entrance in the video.

                                      Old school versus new age please I heard this shit before..and views from fans are gonna be kicken new age ass out the door. you think CGI will hide all them movie mistakes. not every thing here that was bad can ever be erased. The Ark of the covenant gave bad reviews they pissed off as mad fuck!!! now ghost are coming after you. them awards are gonna melt like all them Nazi men's faces. and I promise that you new age directors can be easily replaced. you coming at me with Extra Terrestrial bullshit. this is the exact reason that boy went up and quit. no sequel to that cheesy family movie. What you gonna fight me with Spielberg a stupid walk talky. you took away the agents guns that was such a dumb move. now aliens will invade this world making you all look like fools. look Mr Spielberg here comes a giant boulder. now your career in the directors chair is officially all over.

                                          Nice Peter's portrayal of Michael Bay was so natural and convincing I can only assume this is what he's like in real life.

                                            For me, this Kubrick bit is the absolute best thing you've ever put out. The acting, verse, and references could not be better.

                                                                              @Nebohtes Agreed, I think the most thing that's maddening about Bay is that he outright refuses to improve in those areas, when it's clear he has direction of action and special effects already down pretty well. It's almost spiteful at this point, he's been stereotyped as the dumb blockbuster guy so don't change. Bay is successful but static, a purveyor of dumb blockbusters that while successful are forgotten almost immediately upon seeing them since they are formulaic, usually generic, and without any significant substance.

                                                                              I figured the original statement was sarcasm, but I thought it brought up an interesting point about how success is measured and the perception of success. Those who are students of cinema and film no doubt find Bay irritating because he's succeeding in a lowest-common-denominator sort of way. It's the same animosity people feel for things like Starbucks and McDonalds. Are they successful? Sure, but most people wouldn't want their product in their industry compared to them. Bay is the McDonalds or Starbucks of films, successful, but soulless.

                                                                              That all being said I'd like to take my checks to the bank and sign them with my nuts too, so I guess he wins by not caring what others think of him, which is another point in and of itself.

                                                                              Just a fun thought experiment on my end, glad you enjoyed it.

                                                                              @Brian Noland All great points, fantastic read. My beef with Bay is that his films have diminished qualities that I personally enjoy in story telling and film, specifically chronological cohesion in action sequences and recognition of things like physics and logic. I made a comment I thought was funny, but honestly I do not begrudge him his success, especially in the light that people who enjoy his movies *really* enjoy them; all of us creators only ever aspire to bring people joy or present something that participants regard as time well spent. In that regard, I have a high amount of appreciation for Mr. Bay.

                                                                              Again, thanks for taking the time to write true things beneath my cynical sarcasm; I should not have said I hate him on the internets, because it's not true. In real life tone and non-verbal can carry that statement to hyperbole.

                                                                            • Brian Noland

                                                                              Actually I'd argue he won in both the battle because he represents the truth that as much as people want to pretend the most artistic entertainment is going to be the most successful, it's usually the dumb blockbusters that are the most successful, and Bay's verse captures that perfectly. He gives the people what they love and doesn't give a shit about high minded critics claiming he's a "bad director".

                                                                              It kind of brings up an interesting point about what is more important in an entertainment medium, is it overall sales and profits, is it critical acclaim? Ideally you want both but that is a very hard thing to achieve.

                                                                              I don't know if it's necessarily "unfair". It's just the truth that most people at their core just want to be entertained, either by laughing at comedy, or enjoying action. Sure most can appreciate good acting, but many of those "oscar worthy" films can feel downright boring to someone who isn't a student of cinema or acting.
