Michael Bay is fourth on our list of highest grossing directors of all time. What does that mean? Nothing!! Yes, he makes movies that a large segment of audiences love to watch on the big screen but the truth is–and this may sound bitter to many–he hasn’t made a single good film in his career. Remember, box office success doesn’t mean a good film; it just means people were willing to pay money to see the film in the theater. I know many may disagree, but let me ask this: How many of you remember a piece of dialogue or an exceptionally touching moment from his filmography?
While you think about that question, here’s the list of all the Michael Bay movies ranked in order of bad to worst .. top to bottom (yeah, not good to best). This time, I haven’t written specifically about each of his films (can you imagine the torture that would be?), but instead have quoted some funny IMDb user reviews. You can watch some of these Michael Bay movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

“There was a car chase in this movie for no reason. I don’t like it when directors abuse their budgets. Besides being half an hour longer than it needed to be, it also had the typical amount of explosions for a Bay film. At one point Sean Connery throws a knife and there’s a P.O.V. shot based on the knife.”
