7. ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon': Chicago Invasion
Perhaps Bay is just a country boy at heart – that could give us a little insight into why he so adores demolishing entire cities for his narrative needs. There's something strangely artful about the Decepticon attack that takes out much of Chicago in the third Transformers film, thanks to both its operatic score and slow-moving bad guys. Still, this is Bay doing his favorite thing: blowing up skyscrapers before moving on to the next block.
