not saying that I love bay, I don't care what he does.

but in that scene, before the jump, don't they say something akin to "do the thing.." implying that they were indeed about to do something that they had done before. or was I dreaming it subconsciously to make sense of the scene?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's implied that they've done that before. The problem is that it's incredibly easy to miss, which is a fault

Yes, they did, which is something that isn't entirely that uncommon in a Michael Bay film, or a detail that helps something make sense is just on the screen and not specifically called out. I think its one of his strengths, not spelling out everything in minute detail. It means that if you don't pay attention to the film as your watching it, you will miss stuff. A movie/TV show that spells out absolutely everything is in my opinion extremely boring, especially if it spells out stuff twice or more, once for people paying attention and then a second /third time for those only half watching the film.

I don't think it's a fault, it's a feature, see my comment above.

I don't think it is intentional on the part of Bay though, as he is known to be someone who does a lot of script changes to make sure his impulsive action shots take priority, and then add in throw-away lines to explain it... if he even bothers to explain something (as we've seen on those youtube videos that pick out dozens of plot and continuity flaws).

I recently saw someone attempt to defend Age of Extinction by saying that it's art, and compared Michael Bay with Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Vincent Van Gogh.

I hope bay is not involved in any of the subsequent films/spinoffs
The first movie was good but every movie thereafter has been a considerable disappointment. They keep getting stuff wrong.
Hope they learn from their mistakes, doubt it though...sigh

What mistakes?
The movies made a heap of money. Why would they change anything?
The fans might whinge, but they still buy the tickets, DVDs, Blu-Ray & toys.

Same here. For all that some people say the movies 'get wrong' - and I'm certainly not saying they're perfect - they're clearly doing something right.

It's great that the producers are trying to canvass ideas through this 'writer's room'. We really could see some great ideas coming out of these sessions.
