If you are looking for positive things to say about Michael Bay's upcoming film version of the Transformers, you really need to look no further than his cooperation with the United States military, particularly the Army and USAF. Michael Bay recently updated his personal blog, and shared with fans some of the experiences he has had so far with the good folks at Holloman Air Force Base and Army's White Sands missile base in New Mexico. According to Bay, this film is the largest cinema-military team-up since Black Hawk Down. Bay described his recent work with the military as thus: "Friday we shot two CV-22's (Ospreys). They fly like aliens dropping out of the sky. We also shot stealth fighters and low attack missile runs (50 feet off the deck) A10 Warthogs. They look so deadly and mean." Bay also said they've done shooting in a tank graveyard that "had more tanks in it than all of Iraq."

Look at me, writing an almost entirely positive write up on Michael Bay. I feel as though I've turned over a new leaf. I read his post and thought "hey, sounds cool," and then I wrote a post which said "hey, sounds cool." And I mean it -- I think this is positive news all around. Still waiting on news of my beloved robots in disguise, but this is good to hear in the meantime.
