    Michael Bay Says 'Transformers 3' Will Be Final Film In Franchise... Unless It's Not

    With the humility of the true artist we all know him to be, visionary auteur Michael Bay has acknowledged some of the missteps taken with his last flawed masterpiece “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.” The film was an arthouse smash, (actually the No. 2 movie of 2009 behind only the similarly-modest kitchen sink drama “Avatar”), and earned $836 million worldwide — though many filmgoers voiced their disappointment with the sequel — doubtless finding some of its loftier literary allusions and more obscure highbrow references to be lost on them.

The former films might be Doug Liman’s Fair Game, films such as Three Days of the Condor, Battle of Algiers, or the classic films of Costa-Gavras or D.W. Griffith. The latter are most often documentaries which today are filling the vacuum created by TV and print media for in depth news coverage. Everyday there are new instances of the latter. Finally, there are films which are made political by others who want to polarize groups around certain issues.
