that man can SELLLLLLLL anything!
Transformers. The Last Knight (Michael Bay, 2017) May God have mercy on us all... - Page 2
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..
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, 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!!!!!

Also.....I bet money that Earth is Unicron. Shit that crazy combined with typical Michael Bay gloss can't help but make me wanna like it. And liking it is easier after that last one. 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.
By the Allspark! Its true!
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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 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!
Not the main actors, the cameos! Like Bay, Ceelo, and Dane Cook.
I do wish Kinka Usher had gotten another shot at directing.
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.
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.
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
