Film Critic Quote of the Week

Peter Suderman, on the recent dustup between Bruce Willis and Michael Bay, occasioned when Willis said that if Bay had directed the recent "Die Hard" sequel, "it would have sucked," after which Bay suggested a challenge:

Yeah, why don't we do that? Cause I saw both of those movies, and the action in Die Hard was relatively original, coherent, and thrilling, and the action in Transformers was, let's see… a brain-deadening robo-mess. Now look, I enjoyed the hell out of Transformers, but other than the quality of the effects, it's awful—just awful—by pretty much every imaginable aesthetic metric, and the action, especially, was almost aggressively incomprehensible.
I really, really loved "The Rock," and still quote it frequently, but Bay really hasn't made a watchable movie since.
