Transformers. The Last Knight (Michael Bay, 2017) May God have mercy on us all... - Page 2

post #51 of 519

that man can SELLLLLLLL anything!

post #52 of 519
Hah, you guys. It still boggles my mind that you didn't learn after #2.
post #53 of 519

I know.

 

2 is the best one.

 

there's no topping that

post #54 of 519
What was I suppose to learn exactly? I checked out after ROTF. Watched Dark of the Moon a couple years after release due to not being too terribly interested and enjoyed it quite a bit more than that rubbish second one. If for no other reason than due to the sheer scale of it all. Was therefore more receptive to Age of Extinction...though I still didn't watch it at the theater. That one moves like a rocket. A lot like Revenge of the Sith in that it has enough action to mask it's flaws if (yes I'm aware of how big an "if" that is) you're predisposed to enjoy that sort of thing. And it has a great villain combo with Kelsey Grammar (who was a hoot I thought) and Lockdown who probably had the most personality of any of the robots in any of them bar none. I loved how he wasn't really an Autobot or a Decepticon and was just annoyed at the whole situation and viewed them all as a bunch of crybabies. He was a better Boba Fett than Boba Fett was.

And I really think that at the very least The Last Knight is going to be a much more focused shot of pure insanity. They've really just dropped all pretense and said "Let's do the biggest weirdest thing we can." I will seriously love this flick if they go all the way and have Optimus Prime be totally evil or whatever is going on and Megatron be the titular Knight. And Earth has to be Unicron . One of his horns is sticking out of the desert. This could be the Transformers answer to Bad Boys II haha..
post #55 of 519

the recent transformers talk got me remembering this thing... when Stan Bush really seemed to be campaigning to be the one to sing a cover of THE TOUCH for Bay's movies:

 

ehehehehe

 

oh man

 

post #56 of 519
Earth being Unicron would either be a happy accident, or a purposeful influence. The plot of the first season of Transformers Prime revolves around the discovery that Unicron lay dormant for billions of years after a big defeat, and Earth grew around him while he was curled up. Basically Earth's core turns out to be robo Satan. If he wakes up and transforms, well...

Whats cool about that version of Unicron is that he's voiced by John Noble. "So, humanity is my progeny? ...parasites!"

"The rule of Cybertron is MINE! And no other's!"

"Authority is not given to you to deny the return of a Prime, STEWARD!"

Okay, so I've finally watched the trailer. What's an "oreo-bot"?
post #58 of 519
That was in part 4. When the Autobots raid the KSI building, there is a man made robot decked out in Oreo decals standing within an Oreos display. It gets promptly murdered.
post #59 of 519

Okay, I just read that the same guy is playing King Arthur in both this movie and the tv show Once Upon A Time. This means that the two properties take place in the same universe! Will Robert Carlyle's Rumplestiltskin take on Megatron in the next movie?!!! EXCITEMENT OVERLOAD!!!!!

It's pure spectacle and obscene amount of action and enormous set pieces showed that they're at least committed to giving the fans of these movies what they want. How deeply they've dug into the strangest and most obscure corners of the source material just pleases me to no end. Not just robots fighting....but dragons and knights and magic and living planets. So much weird!

This is why I can't really hate these films. They're loud and stupid but unlike some blockbusters (coughSONY!) not lazy or incompetent. Bay is willing to pull in long hours and sweat blood so that his dumb tentpole has the biggest explosions, most photorealistic CGI and loudest sound mix.

I honestly have no idea whether you are joking.

And I've seen Part 4 - I think.

Is it a race thing?

ETA: Okay, I googled and you are not joking. Jesus, Joseph and Mary.
post #62 of 519

You don't even need to make fun of that teaser.  It seems like a parody mashup of blockbuster cliches as it is.

By the Allspark!  Its true!

I'd watch it. Peter Cullen's voice is sexy.

What does Demi Moore transform into?

Where you been mang?  That metal gear looking thing has been in since the first teaser.  And ED-209 had arms, this thing is totally a Metal Gear Gekko.

You go gurl!
post #71 of 519

Da fuq is up with the new trailer? How have we gone from knights, robot dragons and a Anthony Hopkins voice-over to a little girl rolling around in garbage trying to convince the audience she's awesome whilst some ten year old douchebag makes jokes about her dating a robot? What will the next trailer show? Will it just be Mark Wahlberg shitting on a pavement and then using a stick to write "TraNsFOrmers YEAH!!!!" in his own excrement? 

post #72 of 519

So the ethnic comic relief gets started young in the Transformers universe. I imagine them having a Jackie Chan like training, get beaten by Chris Tucker if they don't shout "AWW HELL NAW!" after something shocking happens. 

 

Today, though, that's a lost art. This generation of ethnic comic relief won't even know how to bug their eyes out when screaming about aliens, robots, or monsters.

post #73 of 519

Michael Bay and girl empowerment, together at last. They had me with the vomiting dinobot. That was cool. And by cool I mean totally sweet.

Looks great, can't wait.

With dialogue cribbed from that old "Run like a girl" Always youtube advert, no less! Weren't these being slated for stuff like the creepy sexualisation of Walberg's onscreen daughter as recently as the last movie?

post #76 of 519
So she's basically Michael Bay's ripof...version of another junkyard orphan, Rey.
post #77 of 519

final trailer:

 

post #78 of 519

The final shot of Prime slicing through all of those robots with the sword was kinda cool.  The rest?  It's just visual overload...incomprehensible action blipverts of shit blowing up.

 

I'm so very, very glad that I gave up on this franchise after the first one.

post #79 of 519

I am sitting this one out, folks. Been burned too many times.

Im playing the new Transformers mobile game (Forged to fight; its mindless fun), and seeing Bay's Transformers share the screen with the original/animated designs really hammers down how awful, clogged and overdesigned Bay's versions are.

As for this, I gave up on seeing/paying for these movies on the big screen after the cavalacde of awfulness and stupidity that was the second one.

And with them being hugely profitable, we'll never see them rebooted in a better form, ever.*

 

*If there is one 80's property that should had been handled in an Amblin style family adventure/action film, is this one; mix Transformers with the style/spirit of something like Stranger Things, and you would have an amazing all ages franchise.

post #81 of 519
I need a cigarette after seeing that trailer, and I don't smoke. Looks so good. Seeing Prime decapitate 5 Infernocons in one swipe was so metal.
post #82 of 519

This is the trailer equivalent of a nine year old boy having a sugar rush in a candy shop, running around in circles for three minutes, falling over, and then throwing up in his own stupid face.

I still cant believe i just realized this:

 

 

Bay plays the leader of the evil frat boy gang in Mistery Men.

I refuse to believe Bay didnt already own his costume for this.

I agree completely.  And yeah, there are a ton of cameos in Mystery Men.  Almost all people that would go on to do awful things.

 

... Were we talking about something else?  Power Rangers?  Batman?  I can't recall.  Probably Batman.

Whoa, hold on a minute there, amigo.

Azaria did the Smurf movies, Stiller has plenty of bad shit on his resume and so on, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand by while you badmouth William H Macy's name!

post #86 of 519

I think that Bay is friends with Kinka Usher, the director of MYSTERY MEN.  Pretty sure that's why he's in there.

post #87 of 519
Maybe Bay is Kinka Usher.

Not the main actors, the cameos!  Like Bay, Ceelo, and Dane Cook.

 

I do wish Kinka Usher had gotten another shot at directing.

How is Tyrese in two different movies this Summer where the good guy goes bad...and apparently because of a female character?

You can't post a trailer in the thread and then say you don't give a shit about the franchise.

Only felix can do that.
post #91 of 519

 I went to a showing of YOUR NAME and there was a trailer for this that was the new young star of the movie (Isabela Moner) talking to the camera about running like a girl and throwing like a girl as we're shown all sorts of moments of her being a strong female character.

It was almost like a girl power PSA by Dove or something.  Really leaning into the empowerment HARD.  And all that's well and good, but I was wonder if that footage of her talking to the camera is actually in the movie too?  I HOPE IT IS.

post #92 of 519

I notice that there's a female character wearing glasses in the trailer. I bet she's either an academic or a scientist. 

post #93 of 519
She's a robot in disguise.
post #94 of 519
All I know is it's gonna have to put in overtime to be as bad as Revenge of the Fallen. I unfortunately caught a good portion of it the other day and it was so unbearable that it made me wonder if I was just imagining liking the other ones. It's as obnoxious and interminable as POTC 4 is dull and blah and flat as watered down soda..

Just own that you like this shit. No one tied you to a chair and made you watch it.

No they didn't. I was sitting with one of my nephews and he was watching it. I DO own that I like the other ones. I think they're nowhere near as bad as 2. They still aren't gonna win over a person who ISNT a Transformers fan but they're better than that turd. It's so bad I can see why Nooj likes it..

now I may not be as hearty and of the earth like my friend over there, but in this snooty city boy's opinion, the 2nd ones are always the best

post #99 of 519
Fraid is exonerated. People have to put up with all kinds of atrocities when taking care of small children. When I was dating a single mom a couple years back, I had to watch waaayyy too much of the second live-action Inspector Gadget. It was even worse than the first live-action Inspector Gadget, and the first was so bad that even Sean Spicer wouldn't use airplanes to drop it on his own people.
post #100 of 519
Oh man, I was so excited to see the first "Inspector Gadget." Then I saw the first "Inspector Gadget."
