You might be right, I'd have to go back in look, it's been a long time since I've seen the original series. But yeah this is the dumbest route they could possibly go.

Check out this "modernized" but yet, amazing shoutout to the original design of Megatron.

Transformers Megatron Transformers Generation 1 Statue by Pr | Sideshow Collectibles





And then, look up the Ent that we got instead for these movies.

Nope. Not paying to see it. I may try to watch it when it comes out on Netflix and I'm drunk.




They should retitle this as "The Last Night (When You Got @$$Raped)".

Seems like it.


No interest to find out why though. I'm just waiting for the day they reboot this series and give it some better writing/stories.

I'd be lying if I said I'm not going to see this.

Everything about it doesn't look as terrible except for Wahlberg.

Me neither.

Like every other Transformer movie after the 1st one, I'll wait to watch it on Netflix or Redbox it.

Rotten Tomatoes has it at a lovely 17% right now...almost as awesome as Trump's approval.

I walked by, it was a bigly scene over there!!! Couldn't see anything apart from the projections on the side of the building - they had everything barricaded and fenced up.

This movie will sell. Transformers, like LEGO and Star Wars is a gold mine.

Still, doesn't mean it's any good. Reading most of the critics reviews pretty much confirms this is a no-watch. If this is indeed Bay's last movie for this franchise, I can hope someone like del Toro can helm the series and make it better.

This is one of those franchises where even if the critics rated it 0% on rotten tomatoes, it will still bring in $$$$$$$$$$$$

It was pretty much the shit fest they all say it is. But its "better" than the last one.

They definitely left it set up for more sequels.

There is some fun stuff with Anthony Hopkins being a total loon. But otherwise is a mess of confusing adolescent jokes and big action. I mean shit, They were straight ripping off Monty Python in the beginning.

But I'll leave this final comment with everyone. The movie has Hot Rod....he's french...

As over the top as you can get. And it was pretty damned funny. Too bad it was a Transformers movie.

Good to know. Add to my Netflix queue when it comes out on video then.

Then again, AoE is still on my queue and I still can't bring myself to watch it.

Its all horrible.

And frankly at this point, I dont hold Bay SOLELY responsible...partially. But long time hollywood HACK, Akiva Goldsman has his hand in this pot. Somehow having been made the head of the writers rooms for the habra-verse.

That dude is a pure shitstain on cinema, and I have NO clue how he still has a career after all these decades.
