I think it looks alright and as long as it's not 4 hours long it can't be any worse than the last one... can it? Please tell me it can't be worse than the last one.

The TF movies seem to alternate between serviceable and horrible.

 

The first was decent, ROTF was terrible, Dark of the Moon was the best so far (faint praise, admittedly), and Age of Extinction was very bad. So if the pattern holds, The Last Knight might be ok?

True enough. The trailer looks okay even if I have no idea wtf is going on in most of it.

It was crowded, but for someone like me who doesnt follow transformers all that much, I enjoyed all of the other movies. I dont care who says they were terrible, they can have their opinion, but I did enjoy them. This one looks to be good IMO as well, the trailer is pretty cool.

So I saw it last night. I give it a 2 out of 5

 

as much as Bay was talking the script up I was hoping it was going to be really good. It was bad. The editing was all over the place, and a few Bay camera angles go a long way and the movie was made up of most of them. It also had soooooo many stupid one liners, the Black guy was the worst. It also felt like they could have chopped 30 mins out of it. It can in at a running time of 2 hours  29 mins. Please Bay, for real this time stop making Transformers movies. The only one that was ever any good was the first one.

I love that absolutely no one seems to notice that they completely ignored the previous movie.  Megatron was turned into Galvatron (truck form) and was able to digitize himself into whatever he wanted.  This movie has him back to Megatron and he has no known ability to digitally transform in any way that was shown in the last movie. 

 

Spoiler

And of course, they completely butchered Unicron.  How the hell are they going to actually show Unicron if they make it Earth?  As soon as he transforms we as a species are screwed.  Overall, they just need to stop making movies.

viewers need to stop picking apart movies so much, who cares if they don't match what's in a comic or book.

 

as long as they are entertaining with decent acting / soundtrack that's watchable imo.

You have to remember that for some, who grew up on a certain franchise feel let down or even betrayed by it, if the franchise deviates dramatically from the 'official' lore.

 

I'm one of those, I grew up on many of these cartoons, show, etc. And many of the generational friends who also remembered the franchises feel the same way.

The problem is people want them to be how they are in the original series or film as that is how they look and feel it should be.

 

I mean the only real Transformers movie was the animated one that came out in the 80's that stayed true to the idea of what the transformers are and not exploding lenses flair to be seen.

Spoiler

I mean how can unicron be planet earth and all this bloody knights templer rubbish that keeps being added to the films currently what is with that crap?

In the current and previous Transformers cartoons Unicron is the planet earth, so I am guess thats where they got the idea from. Still does not work if it is not executed correctly

I did not know that as I have not read any of the comics for a long while and was not aware that had changed. How does unicron end up being planet earth, it just does not make any sense at all. Can you point me at the correct comics so I can catch up on this?

 

But my point still stands that the best film was the Transformers:The Movie(cartoon).

Movie was OK; I wasn't expecting much other than explosions and cool looking robots/cars. Some silly holes, mainly megatron not having his new look from the last movie along with Unicron.  I enjoyed it though.

Just watched it and it was fine for a 'switch your brain off and enjoy the action' film. 

 

There were so many continuity errors though it was pitiful, almost wanted to make this Transformers 1.1 and forget those in the middle. Something that did bug me however was the WW2 sub. It is based in Gosport here - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/50°47'18.5"N+1°07'11.0"W/@50.788466,-1.1205103,282m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d50.7884661!4d-1.1197184, about 70miles from London. Then the shot from the museus, to Themes then Dover..... Bugged me, probably more than it should have done.

      Niantic teams up with Hasbro to develop a Transformers AR game
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Niantic, the developer behind the smash-hit Augmented Reality (AR) game Pokemon GO is prepping to launch another high-profile title. Its latest project turns Hasbro's iconic Transformers franchise into a mobile AR experience.

      For the upcoming AR game dubbed Transformers: Heavy Metal, Niantic has handed off development duties to a Seattle-based studio Very Very Spaceship. Niantic's Executive Producer, Phil Hong, revealed that the Transformers game will be based on the company's Lightship platform. He further stated that the game will allow you to "team up with the likes of Bumblebee and the Autobots in the real world".

      As per the company, Lightship supports real-time mapping by combining neural networks with cell phone cameras. The platform can detect and interact with various objects, buildings, ground, and sky to deliver a convincing AR experience.



      If we can erase five Michael Bay movies from our memory, Transformers is one of the most beloved franchises from the 80s. According to Niantic, fans won't have to wait for too long as the game is set for a soft launch in select countries soon. It will be followed by a global rollout later this year. Fans can head over to TransformersHeavyMetal.com and pre-register for the game.

      Launched in 2016, Niantic's Pokemon GO was such a rage that robbers started using it to mug unsuspecting players. Many distracted people even got into serious accidents while catching virtual monsters. It will be interesting to see how the reception for Transformers: Heavy Metal will be.

      Over in the  Random Text Thread I posted a couple pics of my toy collection,and got requests for more. So I figured this forum was the right spot for it. There may be some other lines mixed in, but I'll keep it mostly Transformers. And of course any other collectors on here are welcome to share their pics.

      In a feature on the new Universal Studios ride, "Transformers: The Ride - 3D", Hero Complex have offered up an update on the fourth instalment in Michael Bay's explosive franchise. Apart from the mention of some redesigned robots, this may give us an idea of the direction the movie will go in. However, with reports that none of the original cast members will return, who knows where the director will take things with the sequel, especially if his plan is to set things up, "for the next guy."
      It's worth remembering that this is pretty much exactly what Bay said said after the release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and just look how that turned out. Bay has indicated that it will serve as a reboot of sorts, but if Paramount offer him enough, it seems likely that he will indeed choose to return. Only time will tell. The currently untitled fourth instalment is tentatively scheduled for a 2014 release.

      Has no one on Neowin seen this yet?
      Anyways... saw it tonight and boy, there's two and a half hours of my life I'm not getting back.
      I'm not in the right frame of mind to post a full review but here's some comments, starting with the bad. Beware some of my comments might be construed as spoilers, but I'm not really giving anything away - if in fact there is anything to give away!
      1. Lack of storyline. I don't get it. You'd think Mr Bay would have learnt from TF2, but it seems like he heard the critics and said 'screw you all, I'm doing it all over again'.
      2. Long drawn out second half of the movie fight scene. You might be wondering what I mean by that. Well quite literally, the second half of the movie is one big fight scene. Then, when it gets to the climax (and the baddies lose of course), virtually nothing happens, the movie ends, and cuts to the credits. I think it's saying something when TF2 had a better end scene. I'm a massive Transformers fan and towards the end of the movie I was literally thinking to myself 'god when is this going to finish'. I felt so ashamed, but it's what I felt.
      3. Cheesy acting/humour. I know, it's to be expected, but it doesn't do the movie any favours. Ms Huntington might be great to look at, but I think she is probably more annoying than Ms Fox.
      On the other hand, there were some good aspects.
      1. Some great individual action scenes. The CGI has really been stepped-up a notch, and this makes for some great action sequences with the Autobots. Loved the car chase on the freeway with Bumblebee, the F450 and Sideswipe.
      2. Loved Optimus' new transformation mode. However I thought it was incredibly stupid how the leader of the Autobots could not untangle himself from some rope.
      3. Thought the scene where the humans took down Shockwave was pretty awesome.
      Overall, too many cringe-worthy moments ruined it for me, especially since I was quite hyped to see this. I actually liked TF1 and TF2 - both of which I bought on bluray. I think the only reason I'll buy this on bluray is to use it as a demo disc for my home theatre.
