Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Trailer #3 is up... thank god, because the moon was getting old.

That new chick looks like a plastic sex doll. Why'd you have to go & be stupid Megan?

Peter Cullens' voice, robots, explosions, crap jokes, more robots, shakey cam, all in 3D.

I'll be there on the front row on opening day, glasses ready

DL = Hollywoods' bitch.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Transformers 3 was all I really all I wanted in a Transformers movie all along. An intense sci-fi action film, with a comprehensible plot. And action scenes where you could actually see what was going on, without the need for flashing a strobe light in the camera for the entire last act. It's not a super complex formula, but Michael Bay managed to screw it up 2 out of 3 times.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

This movie is arguably the exemplar of its genre, 2 hours of Saturday morning TV from the 1980s' recreated in 3D at vast expense, with all the visual glory and intellectual emptiness that entails.

In short, Bay did indeed finally get it right. I really really loved it, even as a massive Transformers fanboy I could appreciate that this was a great popcorn movie on its own, with incredible action set pieces and Bay making every frame look stunning.

Its also made a 100% profit in one week, so one can hardly argue at the waste of cash.

Last night I watched The Expendibles (of whom none died I believe). Not a bad film of its genre but I honestly felt that it desperately needed a director like Bay to do the actors and concept justice. He just knows how to make great action sequences.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Haven't watched it yet because I heard the Jar Jar twins and the little pervy bot still feature.

As to the point about characters dying... it's based on a toy line. C'mon have you not even seen the original G1 movie? The pretty much wiped out the entire original toy line in the first half hour. I think that messed with a lot of kids. In fact it was the outcry over Optimus Prime's original death that led to them bringing him back as Powermaster Prime... they just didn't even get how beloved the character had become with kids.

I always seemed to have rotten luck with my toys. All the ones I owned seemed to suffer premature ends. Sunstreaker went into a coma in the comics, very early on... sure something bad happened to Thundercracker too.

Not sure about Tracks.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Twins are gone, pervy bot still there. I like the idea of a robot Joe Peschi myself.
