Trailer looked good. Just not sure if the movie can deliver what the trailer promises. Oh, and no Megan Fox *sadface*

Oh Goddamn! I wasn't even a big fan of the first film, didn't see the second, and I will definitely go see this.

Okay, I feel I need to address this.

*ahem*

I never saw the original Transformers cartoons. I have never seen any of the Transformers movies. I still think this looks pretty cool.

Now before anyone rips my head off, let me explain:

I am a HUGE fan of the Transformers Beast Wars series, and think it's probably one of - if not - the best kids cartoon to bless airwaves in the 90's. I admire everything about it, the innovative characters, the serious tone of the show and the fact that they were able to use limited animation technology to, for one of the very first times, bring to life an entire planet of wonder and adventure in 3D.

Now, since I have no knowledge at all of the original transformer cartoons and their storylines, I simply take from these movies what I also enjoyed from the Beast War cartoons: the numerous badass fighting sequences with huge robots.

I mean, of course a 1.5 hour movie isn't going to adequately represent a universe that expands over several series and even several centuries. But jeez, it's huge fighting robots. How does that not look cool?

I liked the first movie a bit. The second movie was idiotic in so many ways. Extremely predictable, ridicolous plot. All characters were just annoying and I remember I was just one moment away from smacking a guy next to me who happened to like the movie.

Michael Bay is like Lars Ulrichs snare. Only stupid americans like it.

I agree. What is NOT cool about big badass robots, Peter Cullen, hot girls and beautiful cinematography?

However, we must remember that The Pit id full of nothing but the BEST film critics and connoisseurs.

Except it doesn't try to represent that universe. It's a shitfest of CGI, explosions, Megan Fox and racist jokes. And they're trying to do it in 3 movies.

The second movie was one of the worst things I have ever seen.

wait, racist jokes? in a movie about giant robots?

Aside from that, I don't see the problem with a huge collection of CGI, explosions and -- well actually, Megan Fox annoys me. But a lot of people think she's hot, so I guess it's okay.

Here's how I described the second one after watching it: It's like an episode of the George Lopez Show with robots.

Also, it's closer to 2.5 hours.

2.5 hours of giant robots fighting and Michael Bay going, as usual, apeshit with CGI and visual effects?

I expect no cinematic greatness, but I do expect some popcorn fun badassery, and Bay has yet to not deliver this, in my own humble opinion.

It's not that I don't appreciate film as an art, but expecting art from Michael Bay is like walking into a Sir Mix-a-Lot concert expecting classical music.

The problem is it's done without any taste. If you've seen District 9, that has explosions and CGI and it's a good film.

Here's your racist robots in the second film.

I mean really. Kid goes to college and suddenly he has to go to Egypt to save the planet or some shit from giant robots. And then he dies and comes back to life.

Well said. Not every movie is/has to be some deep stuff. I for one enjoy seeing mindless action like the transformers series, as well as more "intricate" movies.

oh cmon, how can anyone take that seriously?
It's so obviously so overblown to the point that the only people who would take that seriously are the people who take EVERY form of stereotypes as "racism". That's just silly.

They could just've well had a mexican accent saying "Ey gringo, I cut you if yo don' cum weet us nao!"

And that. Something I never noticed in the movie. In fact it wasn't even the script according to the writers. It was Bay's idea to make them talk like that. Sure I find stereotypes funny but it's over done man.
#28
^ okay, now I get what you mean, that's really... uncalled for. The idea behind that design is definately open to interpretation, and it... probably isn't anything good.
Still, they're robots, so who cares. Had they been sombrero-wearing, slouched over, bearded and tequila-drinking robots, I sure as hell wouldn't have cared

I still think that it's a little bit of over-thinking this. Then again, I'm not black, so I don't know how african americans actually reacted to this. If many of the black community seriously took offense to this, then it was stepping over a line. If not, then nobody's offended, so who cares. Because if there's anything worse than people taking offense to their own stereotypes, it's people taking offense to OTHER people's stereotypes.

EDIT:

BUT ANYWAY: THIS IS A MOVIE ABOUT FIGHTING GIANT ROBOTS


Who gives a shit about racial stereotypes? We just wanna see the action!

I give no f*cks. I'm pretty pumped to see this, as they did some filming in my town. Whether or not it actually made the final cut remains to be seen, but still, the Transformers movies have been cool.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

I mean, if you're gonna kill off Optimus let him stay dead. We could handle hero killing in the cartoon movie in the 80's, man up Hollywood.

You are not allowed to name any Bay, Cameron or Emmerich movies.

Transformers 1 was an awesome popcorn action fest. It was exciting and entertaining which is what you want from a blockbuster.

Transformers 2 was a patronising, bloated and most importantly boring exercise that left you wanting your life back.

Not all movies have to be arthouse master pieces. But even a popcorn blockbuster has to be made with some sort or respect and dignity for you to be able to get caught up in the excitement and energy. If you can't engage, you can get the very base, but very fun, point of these films.

It's the difference between great popcorn movies like Iron Man, The Terminator and The Dark Knight and shitfest movies like Transformers 2, Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift and Speed Racer

I personally wouldn't reduce The Dark Knight to being a mere popcorn movie, but I see where you're coming from and I completely agree with everything else you said.

I think I really just need to watch all of the previous Transformers movies (including the 80's animated one) to make an educated opinion on this. I honestly thought they were just typical Michael Bay CGI-fests and were neither special nor horrible, but all of this hate for Transformers 2 has made me realise I should probably watch the first two before I approach the third
