Description: With his knack for staging visually flashy blockbuster mayhem, Michael Bay became the commercial leader among a new, 1990s generation of advertising-and-MTV-bred directors. Hollywood to the core, Bay has claimed that he was the illegitimate child of a popular director of the 1970s -- although he won't reveal who -- and was given up for adoption at birth. Raised in Los Angeles, he spent his childhood staging Super-8 action movies. He studied film at Wesleyan University and the Pasadena Arts Center, where a Coke commercial he shot as a student project attracted offers to make the real thing.

"$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."

"about Uwe Boll "I find people who rant like that – calling shit about both me, and George Clooney – comes from someone screaming because he is not being heard. He is obviously a sad being. When you ask ‘do I care?’ Not in the slightest.""

"A Director That Always Gives Me A Raging Headache Loud noises, big explosions, horrible dialogue, loud noises...a lot of flash, no substance. "Pearl Harbor" gave me one of the worst headaches I've ever experienced."

Worst Big Budget Directors of All Time (20 person items)

"Worst: Armageddon I saw "Armageddon" many times when I was a kid but then I grew up. The rest is history. Michael Bay's "The Island" is almost as painful to watch as "Armageddon" because of its horribly irritating product placement, but at least it's not filled with patriotic propaganda. Although, to tell the truth, commercial propaganda was frustrating enough already. Sadly, Bay's "Transformers" combines these two elements into a gigantic and very expensive piece of pure junk. "Bad Boys 2" is "
