or to deliver on the sweeping conceptual promise of the first.

when it comes to popcorn 4th of july summer fare, that's like saying why involve womanizing male superheroes or funny little asian men in trunks...the summer "good" film experience of the masses transcends the tastes of the few.

A Transformers film can be bombastic and not have to be dopey. The first one was awesome, with its AllSpark quest and amazing action sequences. Even the humor worked, in doses. But I'm hard pressed to find many people who still think Revenge of the Fallen was the summer "good" film experience they paid 10 USD for.

I tend to agree for the most part, however it's a subjective view point to say the comedy and "dopeyness" of the first worked whilst saying the second did not. There are just as many people who like the film as they are people that don't. Critical response not withstanding...but you don't make that much money without a lot of people "liking" the film.

I recently saw Inglorious Bastards finally, I thought it was a "good" film experience, now my friends are telling me not to like it cause it's inaccurate(to say the least) it's got caricatures as leads and it's making dopey jokes out of WW2, something both grave as well as something that has been done before and very well.

Inglorious Bastards, the silliest war film to date(next to pearl harbor apparently).
10usd. and a "good" film experience subjectively speaking

All signs point to the second sequel being more tonally focused. Good news.

Can't be too sure but if it's true then it's cool. Sentinel Prime, "new villain" probably Shockwave but Barricade, wtf?

My questions is who is the Ferrari? Roadbuster?

My hype level for this movie is going up slowly I believe Bay & CO. are going balls to wall on this flick and its gonna be crazy.
Any way heres what it shoulda been...........



The origins……The Fallen betrayed the other 12 primes in a grand battle with his first minion Megatron whom the Fallen created to be the General over the Decepticon Army. While the Primes were dedicated to serving and worshipping the cube, and taught from the knowledge of the cube to respect all forms of life the Fallen wanted the cube for his own purposes of ruling the galaxy leading to the beginning of the war. The Primes on the verge of defeat used the cube to give birth to the Auto bot race and that of Optimus Prime to stand for peace and justice on Cybertron. The Primes had taken all their knowledge and a piece of each of the original 12’s spark and placed it in a gold shielded capsule called matrix of leadership, and sacrificed themselves to hide the cube on planet earth far out of the reach of The Fallen. Without the cube the Fallen couldn’t fully recover from the battle with the Primes and entered a state of stasis and leaving the rule of the Decepticons to his first disciple Megatron. During the 1000 th year of the war the Autobot Nation had dwindled down to the last survivors which made up Optimus Primes army. Megatron sent out hundreds of scouting drones throughout the galaxy with no results unitl finally his number 2 in command and lead communications expert Soundwave discovered technology on a unknown planet millions of galaxies away from Cybertron called earth. Without notifying the rest of his horde Megatron set out to capture the cube and destroy anything in his path. Starscream the leading soldier in the decepticon army being determined to one day rule cybertron, disabled Megatron atmospheric defenses and communication unknowingly to Megatron causing him to crash into the Northern hemisphere of the Earth and been buried under millions of years of ice undectatable to the rest of the decepticons. Soundwave and Starscream now rule the decepticons in two separate factions with Starscream having control of the army and Soundwave leading in Communication, transport and leading the search for Megatron and the All-Spark. Soundwave has been relentlessly searching all the planets in the galaxy for Megastron for hundreds of years, while deploying a team of decepticons to earth to search , no traces of MEgatron have been found to date, but the Decepticons have been secretly developing the planet earth and the technology here to one day take over this planet as their new home and use the natural resources as a replacement of energy for the All-Spark. Earth’s temperature slowing increasing over the years have melted away at the icy tomb where Megatron rests and Soundwave has finally located Megatron and has sent word back to Starscream of the discovery. Soundwave now has deployed a battalion of his decepticon spies to retrieve Megatron and determine the location of the All-Spark.
The Auto bots using their own spy intercepted the transmissions from Soundwave have arrived on earth to stop Soundwave from freeing Megatron and recover the cube to rebuild the Auotbot nation and over take the control of the decepticons on Cybertron.

Roadbuster is probably a Wrecker.... the Arcee listing is interesting...

There's enough out there to suggest that one of the bikes survived ROTF... so could that listing be a new mold or just a retool of the ROTF mold?

The first movie shoulda showed Soundwave and the Construticons revivng Megs and ending in the defeat of the Autobots. but the Autobots where able to destroy the cube..do a movie different for a change where the heroes lose ...

Second movie coulda surronded Decpticons attempting to revive the Fallen somehow, IDK maybe a weapon that would transfer power from sun to awken the Fallen. Autobots defeat Decepticons and send them back to space.

Third one could be set in not so distant future as a nod to original 1986 animated movie be a huge war on earth, Optimus is killed passing the matrix onto Hot Rod, by doing so he awkens Uniciron.

Barricade wasn't in ROTF, but he still got two new toys out of it. Recolors and retools have been Hasbro's bread and butter since day one.

^I actually hope Barricade is in this as his absence was simply ignored in ROTF.

Just because they are releasing toys for certain TF characters doesn't mean they will be in the movie, I mean look at all the toys they released for ROTF that weren't even in the film. That's the only reason I don't rely on if there is a toy then the character will be in the film, but who knows.

Why? What is this INCEPTION where we need or hell even want consistency?
He died.... it was in that one comic no one read

He was ignored with good reason. No one cares or remembers
Plus why have him when we can show shiny new toys/charecters

Actually Bay stated that he deleted that scene of the first movie because he liked Barricade and wanted to hold on to him for future use.

another new and promising interview.

full of affirmation for both haters and optimists.

http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2011/...ind-of-a-mess/

Is this the only 3D shot movie of the summer?
I heard pirates might be.
If it is, then event status here we come.
