Movies of the Future!

In 1990 Lloyd Kaufman directed a film called Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. In the film there is a car chase that climaxes with a car crashing into another car and flipping through the air. While standard for most action films, this was a VERY expensive stunt for a Troma film. So expensive in fact, that they incorporated the same car flip footage into their next film Tromeo & Juliet (and three subsequent films)


Present Day

Action "auteur" Michael Bay is being accused of recycling effects shots from his film The Island into his latest "opus" Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. Check out this video for the evidence: 

Does this mean that Michael Bay is an avid reader of Lloyd Kaufman's Make Your Own Damn Movie and that he is gradually embracing a more economical and personal film style? Can we expect his next film to feature toxic waste and a giant penis monster?

I wouldn't count on it. But damn wouldn't that be an interesting turn of events?


  1. Lloyd Kaufman is one of my favorite directors...

  2. Lloyd Kaufman has influenced so many film directors: Tarantino,Takahashi Miike,Gaspar Noe,why not Michael Bay?
