In the standard coverage, where you do master shot, medium shot, 2-shot and close-up, the crew become like robots. It’s like “Okay, got it”, then everybody starts moving, the tape measures come out… That’s not filmmaking, it’s the dumbing down of the people who make movies. And everybody’s just covering their asses, “just in case”. Why do you need a close-up? “He’s buying fish! Why do we need to see a close-up of a man buying fish?”

- The Value of Incoherency: Taking Michael Bay’s Transformers Films Seriously|Press Play – But if we take these films seriously, and consider Bay’s direction intentional—or “up to something”—then we have our first insight into his aesthetic. He prizes juxtaposition, and his goal is to disorient the audience, unable to tell where the action will jump to next, or whether it will be dramatic or comical. The narrative, then, remains lurching, unpredictable. All we can say with confidence is that whatever comes next, it will most likely be dramatically different than what we’ve already seen. Bay’s cinema is one of constant difference.
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 (US'14): Perfectly serviceable drama about growing up. (I cried a bit at the brave animated dragon. I'm gone.)

THE DOUBLE (UK'13): The guy's id turns out to be a dick in a movie with LOUD design in every aspect. (Chris Morris!)

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (US'14): Possibly makes less sense than the previous three movies put together. Fanboy PS: Ruined Dinobots
