"A Director that Gives Me Migraines So many of his movies either completely suck, destroy the original stories they are created from, or just have some annoying aspect to them that hurts the overall film. Every time I hear he is directing or producing something, I cringe."

List of the Highest-Paid Celebrities of 2012 (10 person items)

"$160 million Bay nabs the title of top-earning director this year thanks to Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The 3-D film brought in $1.1 billion at the box office. Bay has a great deal on the films, taking a solid chunk of the profits. He also earns big from Transformer toys. Adding to Bay's coffers this year: a Transformers ride at Universal Studios in Hollywood. Bay has earned the right to finally do a small film. Pain & Gain has a budget well under $50 million."
