Michael Bay told everyone about his preference for Blu-Ray over HD DVD last year, and now that the tide has turned in favor of Blu-Ray, he doesn't mind at all reminding us of his proclamation. According to a story from Home Media Magazine the director spoke at Visual Effects Society's award show, where he presented the award for animated character in a motion picture.
"Blu-ray's better, and I told everyone. I was very vocal about it. I knew HD [DVD] was not going to make it."
"Am I thrilled? It really wasn't my fight, but remember what I said in the press? I was kind of saying HD [DVD]'s going to lose," he said. "No one believed me."
Bay, who always personally oversees his Blu-ray transfers, can't say enough good things about BD.
"It's just sharper," he said. "It's just [that] the tools are better. I just think it's closer to what it should look like."
Since some of his films date back to the mid-90s, there is the chance that the transfer will be somewhat grainier, but Bay is down with the grain.
"Yeah, there's some grain, pushing film, shooting at night," he said. "There's actually some grain in Transformers. We pushed it just a little too much. I don't mind grain. Grain has a vibe."
