    No way! Rodimus Prime is one of my all-time favorite characters. I'd hate to see how the live-action movies would butcher him.

    Especially after being dragged through the mud in Season 3. On that subject, i don't get how the writers shat the bed with the Season 3 leaders so badly. Rodimus became a "forever in Prime's shadow" character, and Galvatron was turned into a mentally deranged idiot. Say what you will about G1 Starscream's blunders but, i think he would have made a better leader than Season 3 Galvy.

    G1 Starscream's idea to build his own combiner team to usurp Megatron > Every plan Galvatron ever had in Season 3.

    Not to mention Galvatron's random acts of violence towards his subordinates.

    I mean, you knew Megatron had it out for Starscream, but at least you knew his rage was only focused on SS.

    How dare you shit on G1.

    G1 is the epitome of Transformers.

    Every single episode of G1 is godlike and should be made into a movie.

    Golden Lagoon, The Girl Who Loved Powerglide, Nightmare Planet, Carnage in C-Minor, and Hoist Goes to Hollywood are worthy of the big screen! Each of those episodes are guaranteed blockbuster hits!

    I can't wait for A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court to hit theaters!

    From the trailer, it seems Bay is creating much better shots. However the one problem with this from the onset is what/who the antagonist is? It is Optimus, Megatron, remnants of (possible) Cybertron, explosions?

    I must admit that the likelihood of a "real" Prime vs. Megatron fight is a bit exciting.

    The toyline for this movie has a promotion going on right now. Not really worth clicking unless you want to see Cullen and Welker being with their voice changer mask. However, this pretty much confirms that Frank Welker will be the voice of Megatron.

    Hot Rod's voice is just . . . . .. ugh.

    Anthony Hopkins saying dude was cringeworthy.

    At least with some of the other characters the voices made sense. You have a reference point for that character in particular. Bumblebee mute at this point is a really tired gag.

    Honestly, you would hope that this franchise would pull a Fast and Furious and know what it is. For the most part, I have enjoyed the 5th movie and up of that franchise.

    AOE suffered from trying to be more than one movie at a time. Honestly, they could have ended it with Optimus getting captured by Lockdown and sent off to the creators and called it a day. All the pieces were there but lacked focus and a decent editor.

    If Bay hasn't gotten it together on this next film, time to wrap that shit up B.

    New trailer.

    I will have to say that this trailer feels like what I think the movie will be. Stupid humor with a crazy plot, and EXPLOSIONS. I want this franchise to put a Fast and Furious, but Bay's track record isn't saying much.

    Just like Fox's Fantastic Four movies, I will not pay to watch them, or even obtain them illegally.

    If the movie doesn't make money, they'll kill the franchise for a reboot in a few years time.

    You would think that after 5 tries . . . . . . but hey that's only one opinion.

    Even if it is Bay's last, if he still has his hands on it, much won't change.

    Won't see a penny from me.

    There were opportunities for this to be legit. It's just that the movie is so unfocused and has plot strings everywhere.

    The CG does look good. However, the way its used is so underwhelming in terms of robot action it's terrible.

    All the other movies had at least one "hype" moment in the film. This one had glimmers, but nothing that I would just search on Youtube for or pop in the bluray to watch.

    I left the theater exhausted.

    Last movie I saw was the third one. Devastator being a giant vacuum cleaners with testicles and those jive talking autobots was the final straw for me.

    Edit: wait... or was it the second movie?? Honestly all this shit just blends together. lol

    Transformers the last knight earned a zero-star review from Rolling Stone magazine among others. This is Bay-cancer at his best.

    yo, I need fucking help

    my taste cancer friend, whose my best friend, wants to actually go watch this sophistry. I keep trying to shoe horn other movies, like Wonder Woman becaus at least I know that would be better. This dude wants to see the movie because there's a "Dragon" in there. He also unironically loves the homoerotic love fest that is Fast and Furious.

    What to do?

    The Decepticons honestly weren't needed in the movie at all. That sequence have me hope and it just crushed them shortly after.
    My biggest gripes with this movie:


    Action sequences weren't even sequences. There was no escalation to them at all. The Autobot / Con battle in the city was a waste of time.
    • What was the point of even having Megatron in this movie?
    • They could have just gotten rid of Vivian Wembley entirely based on the circumstances
    • No need for Izzy, Sqweeks, or Jimmy
    • MARTHAAAAAAAAAAAA!
    • Optimus Prime going rogue had 0 payoff
    • The obvious Bumblebee movie setup
    • Lack of continuity to the movie before it
    • No clear villain (motivation)
    • The language - why was shit literally flying all over the place
    • The gratuitous violence - The Autobots IMO do more of the killing than the Decepticons.

    The movie also suffered from the ridiculous number of plot threads
    1. Transformers as part of Earth's history
    2. Cade and trying to go home and be a family man
    3. Optimus as an emissary of Quintessa
    4. Izzy's quest to avenge her family
    5. Military coup to work with the decepticons
    6. The Last Knight :rolleyes:
    7. The Chaos Bringer

    Like AOE or not, they at least tried storywise to center more of the story on the Transformers. No interjecting of human history into their presence, just the Autobot struggle. This movie somehow forgot that happened and just kept going because reasons.

    Then the end of the movie promises to deal with the problem that was introduced in this movie. So we are just gonna do this again.

    I hope the Bumblebee movie pulls a First Class and follows up with a reset a la DoFP.

    Side note - My brother reminded me how increasingly angry Prime has gotten. Each line was spoken before right before someone caught it.
    1. "You left me no choice"
    2. "Give me your face "
    3. "Time to find out "
    4. "Cade!". . .*boom*
    5. "Did you forget who I am!"

    I don't think the movies need to be set in the 80s.

    The new Bumblebee movie will be set in the 80s. I wonder if the general direction of that movie has changed due to TF5's performance.

    That movie will be a turning point for the franchise. If it has a hint of Bay-dom in it, it will not bode well. Reboot in 2021

    (It saddens me that somehow this latest clusterfuck of a movie is apparently still making more than Baby Driver domestically. Sigh. I hate humanity.)

    Is 2021 when mainland China collapses or is otherwise destroyed or something? Because I really don't see the series rebooting despite its lack of critical and intellectual quality if it's still making bank off of idiots, especially overseas. As bad as Transformers: The Last Knight seems to be, I highly doubt that it will bomb as badly as it should. If it does not make its money back in full, then it would likely be more because of Bay's bloated budget (for explosions and explosion accessories) than because it made no substantial amount of money.

    Even if a reboot does happen, then it wouldn't surprised me if it happened because of Bumblebee's movie failing even if that turns to actually be good, well-written, and otherwise divorced from Bay's multitude of failings, egregious failings which have still "somehow" made money because humanity is dumb like that. Do you honestly think that Bumblebee can carry a movie by himself in terms of getting people's asses in the seat, especially when he's been barely developed in the movie series that his movie would be a spin-off of? The answer currently seems to be "no", unfortunately.
