    No good.

    by Norm Cascade

    No good at all.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:42 a.m. CST

    I actually watched it several times...

    by TheMarineBiologist

    ...rather than obsessively watching for when the TB was going to be posted.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:44 a.m. CST

    I like Michael Bay...

    by digitalcos

    and I don't care who knows it.<p>So screw you internets! Yer not the bossa may!

    Epic as shit

    by BurgerKing

    No matter what you thought of the first movie, that looks insane.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:47 a.m. CST

    No NO No NO no no no no nO NO

    by gotilk

    Actually, it does look rather large and slick.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:48 a.m. CST

    Please keep the silly human shit to a minium

    by AlwaysThere

    That's one of the main reasons why I've only seen the first movie twice in 2 years now.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:56 a.m. CST

    there goes GIJOE

    by onezeroone

    anyone seen that teaser and this one back to back? Obviously Sommers is aping Bay here. Dunno their release dates, but TRANS2 will waste GI:JOE.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:58 a.m. CST

    Cutesy Micheal Bay Character Stuff Aside

    by redfist

    If they keep that cheese out this might be epic.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:58 a.m. CST

    such a shame all that great FX work is used for EVIL

    by captainCAPSLOCK

    man these movies piss me off.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 2:58 a.m. CST

    Epic is right

    by The_Myhand

    This is going to be INSANE. I'm sensing an Empire Strikes Back approach...but this is just the teaser....oh my lord...summer ger here ASAP

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3 a.m. CST

    Actaually looks pretty cool

    ...well the last scene anyway

    FIRST Shia bash!

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:21 a.m. CST

    Exactly, Norm...

    by hillvalley

    How am I supposed to respond to this ad? It looks like it's for a monster truck show. Wake me up when there's a movie called Transformers thats about fucking Transformers, not about douche-bag Spike watching scrap metal blow up.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:24 a.m. CST

    And before anyone else can say anything...

    by hillvalley

    No, I did not mean robot intercourse.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:26 a.m. CST

    As a teaser, it gets the job done.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius


  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:29 a.m. CST

    The funny thing is...

    by DerLanghaarige

    ...that 95% of the people who are complaining about it will watch it in theatres and buy the DVD anyway, just like they with part 1. (And I'm not ashamed of admitting that I like it.)

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:31 a.m. CST


    by caruso_stalker217

    I didn't give a shit about the first movie, had no interest, went to see it in the theaters, thought it was shit, watched it on DVD, thought it was shit... and you're right. I'm probably gonna go see this one.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:33 a.m. CST

    Looks bad ass.

    by ToughGuyRizzo

    Up, I do occasionally post here drunk. This is sadly not one of those times. Not even sure what was show in that trailer. But it was nowhere near badass.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:33 a.m. CST

    Looks Too Busy For Me

    by Media Messiah

    Looks too messy, and too self important.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:37 a.m. CST



    I am shocked that positive comments out way negative! Are all of the haters in bed? This if a Transformers talkback right? Hell, this is an AICN talkback right? Looks good, can't wait for a HD version.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:37 a.m. CST

    Fuck so many Haters...

    by ThePilgrim

    Did you and Me see the same fucking trailer??? Oh yeah that's right, your still craping your shit catchers over the fact that Megatron wasn't a hand gun that tranforms into a robot that's the same size as a mac fucking truck. Yeah that and the no energon, and energon cubes, and no bumble bee as a VWB.. Flame decals be damned... <P> This trailer is good and you fuckin know it..<P>

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:39 a.m. CST

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    ...and you will find the HD version.

    i like big bots

    by noiretblanc

    and i cannot lie

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:50 a.m. CST

    I have been wondering since the 1st one

    by ThePilgrim

    Do Transformers fall in love, and reproduce like us? <P> There's a female transformer in this one. I wonder if they will play out a romance angle with that some how.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:52 a.m. CST

    I thought that was gimlock?

    by StrokerX

    wasnt that a dinobot a saw running around?

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 3:53 a.m. CST

    nah yeah...

    by StrokerX

    it looks like some cat dinosaur thing...hmmm

    by kwisatzhaderach

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:05 a.m. CST

    Btw: Does anyone here like Shia LaBeouf?

    by Bob Cryptonight

    I mean...would you go see a movie just because he was in it? The kid seems very bland...which makes sense to me since all of Spielberg's so-called proteges seem kind of bland: Drew Barrymore, Chris Columbus, LaBeouf...

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:13 a.m. CST

    e best part was when the pixels pixeled the huge pixel

    by BadMrWonka

    and the other pixel was like PIXEL!!!! awesome.<p>seriously, I'll wait for the HD version at the superbowl party tomorrow to go on a rant about how Transformers sucked.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:14 a.m. CST

    Haha yes I love Shia!

    by Rommel Catuncan

    Shia yeah! Thomas E. Ackerman yeah! <P> Was this written during the Writers' Strike?

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:15 a.m. CST

    not as good X3 teaser was better

    by Phategod1

    I you know how that turned out.

    Hey Rizzo

    by ThePilgrim

    Your sisters all right. I mean don't get me wrong or nothing. A little loose and dry, and it took a few days and some lye to wash away that Jabba The Hutt Armpit cunt smell she left on my junk. <P> As bad as that was Rizo. I'll be back- cause like you, you Cocksoar, Knee Scabbed, Self Family Fucking, Niece and Nephew Molesting, Face Ugly Fuck... <P> You know. No Wait, I'm not done here... <P> Someone should take a fucking hammer and knock all your fucking teeth into the back of your throat and make you gargle em down with a bottle of broken glass, vinegar, lemon juice salt and some and battery acid. <P> Ok where was I.. Oh yeah your overly molested and pegnant by you sister. Her pussy is absolute shit, but her ass and mouth like yours are in great working order, and also like yours. Both of these orifices know how to play and please a dick. <P>So many years with this shit, just fucking kill yourself already. No more pain- You Cocksoar, Kellogg'ed Corn Flake Knee having, Gapping Gay Male Furry Gang Bang Orgy Cum Filled Shit Cover Asshole, Middle Teeth Missing, Self Family and Relations Fucking, Niece and Nephew Molesting Pedoscribe. <P> You Fucking Jerky...

    click on the link that takes you to the youtube video, and then click on the watch in HD button under the videos right hand corner, It's changed from crappy blocky flash video too nice clean hd mpeg4.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:26 a.m. CST


    by BadMrWonka

    thank you, now I can hate on it with full info at hand.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:28 a.m. CST

    Yeah, Shia's crushed hand

    by BillEmic

    was actually rewritten into the script.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:29 a.m. CST

    As for the teaser

    by BillEmic

    Looks like Transformers 1, except with bigger robots during the giant-robots-fighting-money-shots and a darker color palette. Um, yeah.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:34 a.m. CST

    Damn You Michael Bay


    Damn You Michael Bay

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:34 a.m. CST

    Where the hell is SOUNDWAVE???

    by Orionsangels

    Do the makers really know what the fans want? Apparently not. This trailer should of ended with Soundwave and he speaks and we hear that familiar Soundwave voice and we cream our pants, but nope. Let's not do that. Why? wtf!

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 4:37 a.m. CST

    The Bay

    Soundwaves cassette in the original cartoon.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:04 a.m. CST

    Thank God people finally realize Transformers sucked

    by IndustryKiller!

    I fought epic battles in these talkbacks trying tog et people to wake up to how terrible the first film was and finally I feel vindicated. If you think this is gonna be any better you're out of your mind. it's Michael bay, the guy is a hack, period.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:06 a.m. CST

    Oh and by the way DerLanghaarige

    by IndustryKiller!

    I didn't see that first terrible film in theaters and I sure as shit didn't buy the DVD. So fuck you and your asinine assumptions.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:07 a.m. CST

    Really nice teaser

    by Jaws Wayne

    Seems like this will live up to the promise of being a much bigger spectacle as PT. 1 and as far as I'm concerned that can only be seen as a big +. Great final shot, who's the ultra-sized fucker Prime is fighting by the way ?

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:24 a.m. CST

    I have to admit...

    by Sithtastic

    the snob in me always wanted to dislike the original, but I really enjoyed Transformers as a good dose of summer popcorn. Here's hoping the sequel is just as good.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:45 a.m. CST

    GI-Joe/Transformers crossover movie now!!!

    by Boomers_Lips

    it worked in the comics and in the toons!

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:50 a.m. CST

    Wow - just like the first movie...

    by TinSpider

    I can't tell what the fuck is going on because of the messy robot designs... that and Bay needs to PULL THE FUCKING CAMERA OUT. Prick.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 5:54 a.m. CST

    Same old shit

    by kingoflight

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 6 a.m. CST

    Bay finally found the zoom out button.

    by kendragon

    At least Bay seems to have finally figured out that the giant robots are actually 'giant' and seems to be able to fit them into the frame. We might actually be able to see whats going on this time.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 6:22 a.m. CST

    still no Galvatron, Insecticons, or Quintessons.

    by Boomers_Lips

    well, where the fuck r they?

    Looks flashy, but the last one was wank

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    Story was so bad that I couldnt care less about the FX. Shame. I suspect more of the same. <p>And there aint no way I am seeing this in the cinema or buying it DVD. Not good enough by a long way of being in my collection.

    you just made my day with this awesome teaser.waiting for the trailer now.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 6:59 a.m. CST

    Looks awesome...

    by Dr_Zoidberg

    ...people who can't see what's going on, well, I guess your eye/brain thing needs some training. Play some video games or something and watch porn on double speed after snorting a line or two of coke. This film will be a big barrel of fun, Michael Bay is awesome and that's all I have to say :-D

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 7:20 a.m. CST

    anyone got a high quality version?

    by lex romero

    Can't tell what the fuck is going on, big size just makes it blurry, small size is too small.

    Was that huge one DEVASTATOR?

    by Monkey_King

    That fucker looked huge, but why does Ravage's face look like a Beholder from Dungeons & Dragons?

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 7:44 a.m. CST

    MB's approach off pulling the camera too close

    by lb

    actually destroys the moment of the action. It's something I hoped he has learned since TF1.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 7:48 a.m. CST

    doesnt look horrible

    by Dijjot

    transformers meets eagle eye? i take these things as ridiculously expensive tech demo's and on that standard im never dissapointed. darker tone is more interesting, though if its not arbitrary

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 7:55 a.m. CST

    Don't expect any of that Quintessons crap..

    by CeejayNightwing

    This is movie, they aint trying to condense all that bollocks from the TV shows and the animated film into a few movies. This is an adaptation for today, not the 1980's and you need to be a little more realistic about adaptations as well as getting through to all you guys still believing they're adapting the TV show; THEY'RE NOT! It's an adaption of the toys and their concept. For Christ-Sake enough with the Tv Show comparisons already, it's been TWO YEARS NOW!!

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 8:07 a.m. CST


    by GeorgieBoy

    Not surprised, but it's been removed from YouTube. Like we wouldn't watch the real thing on the Superbowl if we'd already seen this one. <eyeroll>

    Fucking blurry shite

    by spud mcspud

    Do you get more seconds of SFX per movie if you ask ILM to do it in fucking impossible-to-see Blurry-O-Vision? It's not visionary or contemporary or fucking clever / stylistic / *insert smug-as-fuck reason for shitty SFX here*, it's just fucking amateurish. I still have no fucking idea what 90% of the robots looked like in TF1, and this looks no different. It's just that the bluury-as-fuck robots I can't fucking see THIS time round are bigger. Wow.<P> I remember when movies used to be PROUD of the SFX they produced, not more intent on keeping them so fucking confusing that we can't see what they are!<P> And for those of you who think I'm just a moaning old fuck who's stuck in the 1980s, answer me this: would the Hoth battle in EMPIRE have been improved with camerawork like that of Bayhem in TF2, or would you rather prefer to be able to see what the FUCK is going on?<P> Bay has gone the way of Tony Scott. Only fucking speedheads and coke whores can see quickly enough to understand what's going on in that trailer. Maybe I need to be in the throes of an epileptic fit for it to make sense in my visual cortex...

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:07 a.m. CST

    Hoth battle > Geonosis battle

    by spud mcspud

    And why? Because I can fucking SEE WHAT'S GOING ON in the Hoth battle. And it's MUCH, MUCH BETTER FOR IT!<P> Bayhem. Bollocks.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:09 a.m. CST


    by spud mcspud

    If there's one Bayhem signature shot in this (you know the one, person stands there looking cool, Bay shoots low looking up against the sky whilst circling person in slow0mo), we need Megan Fox in magic hour, slowly taking off her top and winking at the screen.<P> Mmmmmmm... If Bay fucks up THAT shot I'm coming after him MYSELF. Ah yeah.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:23 a.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    I was entertainated by that movie. Sure, it was ludicrous but was also clever, and LeBitch's performance didn't make me want to punch someone in the head. Maybe putting him opposite a good actress like Michelle Monaghan instead of a street walker like Megan Fox makes a diff.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:25 a.m. CST

    Couldn't look more retarded

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:28 a.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    out of Shia's mouth, at least that I can recall. He'd be wise to shed that from his repertoire.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:37 a.m. CST

    Every so often it sadly occurs to me the irony. . .

    by jimmay

    that people now enthusiastically line up to pay their hard earned money to see 120 minute car commercials. <p> That's all Bay has ever, or will ever make. The 360 shot, slow motion, lens flare lit zoom in with a bottom-feeding soundtrack that he shamelessly regurgitates in intervals of about five minutes in his films is the standard M.O. for flashy, obnoxious car ads, and Bay is such a one trick pony he's never figured out how to adapt the gimmicks to film, which is why all his work seems so disjointed and jerky, because he films in 15 to 30 second visual arcs.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 9:38 a.m. CST

    Um..T4 = Transformers 2

    by SomaShine

    Looks like the exact same fucking movie to me

    Sorry for everyone who was disappointed by a film adaptation of YOUR TOYS. Surely the greatness of the early cartoons had NOTHING at all to do with the fact that we were seven at the time. </p> Now, go forth and call me a Bay apologist even though I said nothing about his direction or the upcoming film.

    by spud mcspud

    As opposed to the shots in ATTACK OF THE CLONES where it's impossible to follow what's going on because the CG camera is too busy showing off how flashy its swooping shots can be - and forgetting there's an actual battle going on down there that it'd be kinda nice to ATCUALLY FUCKING WATCH.<P> If I wanted to watch a movie that I'd physically have to slow down and re-edit on my PC just to make any fucking sense of whatsoever, I'd go and buy DOMINO on DVD. Or watch TF1 again.<P> It's lazy, ineffectual movie-making dressed up as being contemporary and hip and edgy and cool, none of which it is.<P> Hoth, on the other hand, is true movie magic. Bow down, lowly dogs!

    More of the same.

    by Zandunga

    Meh. After seeing the first one, seeing more of the spectacle shit with the exact same angle as last time is not impressive. Boring CGI crap. But of course, Harry - who is famous for not have any discernment and liking 90% of what he sees - loves it like the geeky tool he is.

    Shia Labeouf Was Almost Killed In A Car Crash, For This???

    by Media Messiah

    The clips look terrible??? Nothing wrong with dying for your art, or attempting to, just as long as you are making art...but this movie looks like unfocused trash. Was it really worth a late night vehicle crash, and a horrid hand injury? I think not, based upon these clips???

    What a load of shit

    by photoboy

    I see TINO2 is shaping up to be just as bad as the first film... in fact it's shaping up to be worse than the first film since Bay could have taken the time to reset everything and do a film with the original designs and the proper backstory. Instead he's carrying on with his own bastard creations.

    Photoboy: They'll Never Give Us The Original Designs

    by Media Messiah

    They, the studios and producers, make more money off of stealing the authorship from the original writers and designers of the toys and cartoon series. If they give us the original designs and story details, they'll have to share much more of the profits with the original creators, including merchandising and profits from product tie-ins, and they are too greedy to do that!!! These folks don't give a damn about our childhood memories, or their own, in terms of the original show or toy line and showing respect them, it is all about profit. Trust me on this, Steven Spielberg was never a fan of The Tranformers as he has falsely claimed, or else, he would have given us something closer to the original material.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 12:05 p.m. CST

    I stand corrected that wasn't Devastator in the last shot!

    by ganymede3010

    Ganymede3010: That Commercial Is An Ugly Mess

    by Media Messiah

    And yes, I/we...have a right to question something that looks bad, even in commercial form. Hopefully by doing so, and quite openly, as others have, as you will move somebody at the studio to take a look at this and say, "Perhaps they are right??? Let's fix the problems now, while we still can...before the film's release!!!"-Steven Spielberg<BR><BR>And maybe if that occurs, if...indeed, we are right, that this film does look a mess, hopefully should the studio take action, right away, based upon these criticisms, then maybe you'll get to see a much better film than this one appears to be shaping up to be--again, if our read on this clip is correct? And if that read is wrong, no harm no foul, because the film will go on to become a huge hit, no matter what we say...with plenty of pleased fans all around.

    Well, it does look big and all action-packed and stuff.

    by a goonie

    I still find it difficult to expect much of anything from Michael Bay movie, other than some good effects and nausea-inducing camerawork. But I don't hate all of his movies, so there is always the possibility that I will be pleasantly surprised. I didn't care for the last Transformers flick, but if Bay can up the action and cut out the piss jokes and car commercial silliness, then we might have a decent sequel.<br><br>I know Shia gets a lot of shit around these parts, but I like the guy. He's a talented kid with a ton of charisma. I don't blame the problems of the first movie on him at all, so I trust him to do his best. I'm just worried about the script and Bay's often predictable direction.<br><br>That said, the action here does look massive and so this might end up being a pretty fun popcorn flick after all. Either way, I know I'll be there on opening weekend!

    by Bass Ackwards

    AND actually focused on making the robots characters. But I can count on this movie focusing mostly of Shia and the GIs, having retarded meaningless distractions like piss jokes, Shia trying to win over Fox, computer hackers (and their grandma!), goofball government agents, blah blah blah, all interrupted by robot mayhem that almost looks cool but turns into an incomprehensible mess. Yikes, that was a rant huh, ok out of my system. Except one thing. Why make a fucking transformers movie and then spend NO time focusing in the transformers?!! You think GI Joe is going to ignore the Joes and just make them the requisite mayhem happening around a half assed "civilian" stories? Blah.

    by smatt584

    I love all the people who act like the only reason people didn't like the first one was because it didn't follow the cartoon/toys enough. Pull your heads out, most people didn't like it because it was a shitty movie with crappy camerawork, cheesy dialogue and annoying "character developement", which not only did not make you give two shits about anybody in the movie, but just dragged on like piece of roadkill trying to claw itself out of the road. The movie was fucking shitty by the basic standards of movie-making and even giant robots couldn't save it. That being said, I can't help but hope that this one does what the first one couldn't and will give it a shot, but I can't help but think that Bay is too pompous to change his ways this late in the game. Crossing my fingers...

The last half hour of Transformers had some of the most badass shit I've ever seen. I have no problem following what's going on in the action sand nobody does the insane stuff that he can do, how he gets some of those shots I have no idea. Nobody can pull off the stuff he pulls off and I do mean NOBODY. Yeah it lacks some coherent story, but fuck it, I have too much fun at his flicks to worry about it.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 6:14 p.m. CST


    by Power_Girl

    There is no boycott on this movie. For there to be a boycott people must have an urge to see the movie in the first place. The first film was painful to sit through and I would have walked out if the person I was seeing it with wasn't liking it. I was watching the cinema ceiling for the most part. I'm so never watching this second one especially as that it is the same Director, even more rushed script that the first film and most of the shots in the trailer are recycled from the first film. All that and the robots still look like rubbish and Bay movies are sexist.

    by technotranceporter

    Spoken like a true idiot! For there to be a boycott there has to be a interest in seeing it?! WTF? I am pretty sure this film will open to the tune of 120 million plus. I didn't mean to be a dick, I was just saying. However, you expect ANYONE to believe that you were staring at the ceiling the whole time? Right, right. I don't know a single person, and I know a shit load of people, that after paying for a movie, ANY movie, that is going to stare at the screen the whole time. One more thing. All the reasons that you gave that the movie is going to be shit are the exact reasone everyone will see it. We know the director, hes made some of the most thrilling action set pieces of all time. The script.What script, who gives a fuck. I'm not going there to think about anything other than giant robots and shit blowing up. There might as well not be any talking at all. Who cares, this isn't The English Patient. And sexist? Yeah, most fat girls would say that. Love ya!

    This trailer didnt look good for Optimus...I sense death scene.

    by Dogmatic

    I will never forget being on the school bus having not seen Transfomers: The Movie yet and some mean older kid saying Optimus dies. I refused to believe it b/c you CAN'T kill the main good guy. Then I saw it and cried and cried that Optimus died. Even now when I see that scene I get sad thinking how it made me feel when I was a kid. <P> If they can give Optimus' death in this that kinda weight then it will earn that many extra points for adding more of the soul that was lacking in the first one. I do agree that this seems to be Transformer's "Empire" as things dont look to go so well for them. Bring it on! Looks 10x better than the first one and I loved it! <P> If you dont wanna see robots beating stuff to shit and massive explosions why are you on this talkback???

    SEXISM COMMENT IS BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by Illuminate

    Power_Girl is probably a "wanna be" actress who was rejected by Micheal Bay. I have met a lot of actresses who couldn't act there way out of a paper bag who have met Micheal Bay and all these sleaze bags say is that Micheal Bay won't cast me because they won't sleep with him. He won't cast you because you are a lazy hack who does not taking acting seriously. You have to have some acting skills and a commitment to be cast in a movie. It's 2009 and unfortunately there are still A LOT of women who like to use the “gender card” to delusionaly try to cover up there own faults therefore, they blame others. Micheal Bay is a genius and action movies would not be were they are today without him. If anything Micheal loves women since, he makes them look so great on film.

    I remember when people were accusing Bay of being racist with the first Transformers well, those idiots who don't do there research were not aware that Bay directed Bad Boys 1 and 2 with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. People are just assholes these days and try to say whatever. Well, people aren't stupid and if you point the finger than remember there are four more fingers pointing back at you. Back to the trailer, it looks awesome. It makes GI Joe look like a TV movie. I never thought that Bay could have brought Transformers to another epic level since the first one was so epic but, he did.

    by Mr. Profit

    Are hilarious. <P>It's a movie about giant fucking robots. Yeah the first one had some annoying shit in it (Sector 7), but the effects were undeniably top notch and the action delivered. Sure the story about the cube was a MacGuffin and the story wasn't strong. But who the fuck cares? This movie wasn't made for you. <P>As a kid I loved Transformers, had all the toys, and I saw the film in the first grade in the theaters. I remember Prime dying after his epic battle with Megatron making me sad as fuck. But people come on. Let's remember who this movie is mainly for. The kids who have money to burn. And as long as they spend their money and driving these films to profitability, they will keep getting made. <P>It's a movie based on an old cartoon that was created solely to sell toys. What is the issue here? Little kids love it. My little cousin has seen this movie dozens of times. And that's what matters. <P>Who goes into a movie called "Transformers" thinking it will be life changing or seriously expecting the filmmakers to uphold the source material as something sacred. No one gives a fuck what old school characters crazy fans want to see. <P>I know it's rough for some of us kids of the 80's to accept the fact that we are now older. But remember you are not the target audience for this movie.

    Then again she's not doing "Bride Wars" or those type of movies is she? "Jennifer's Body" seems to be taking a long time to come out. Though I wouldn't be surprised if she became Lara Croft with an American accent. She should do that movie where she falls in love with a Russian stripper that she was talking about. Very indie.

    The Teaser & Kentucky Colonel

    by DeeJay

    Regarding the teaser... it was great, but it's also pretty obvious that this taste is largely supposed to serve as a lead-in to the "real" trailer coming out on 1-13-09. This montage seems to work better when viewed on a larger screen, and the screen I was watching didn't give the full effect, yesterday. Still, once Jablonsky's music and Cullen's voice are added somewhere in the background of the full trailer, I question whether this teaser would be able to stand on its own. Kentucky Colonel... it could and it should. If done correctly (with the right visual sense and some fitting sci-fi concepts) Micronauts would be excellent. The challenge would be whether the company that owns toy rights is willing to partner with Marvel Studios (as Marvel Comics created a bundle of non-toy characters that helped shape that universe).

    I saw the first one

    by Mr Gorilla

    ...and I still don't know what the frakking difference is between a Decepticon and an Autobot. I mean, Decepticon sounds bad, because deception is a bad thing, but Autobot is hardly something to aspire to, surely? Anyway, look, I held off for ages then the many posters & people saying 'wow, it's incredible' talked me into seeing it. And how dumb did I feel when it did, in fact, suck. It's not always a nice feeling to be right. Sometimes it hurts real bad.

    I hear your argument, God knows, I agree with you.<P> BUUUUUUT...<P> Why assume that just because it's a kids' movie (which it so obviously is) that it has to have a shit story?<P> Some of the best kids' movies of late have had some solid storylines to them. THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES was fun AND made sense. LEGEND OF THE WATER HORSE - great sense of time and place, solid coming-of-age story. It's worth noting that neither of these relied on SFX in the same way TF1 did.<P> Nowadays, SFX seems to be used to hide the fact there is NO story, rather than used to service a slid story in place first. And that's a very sad trend to have to see, and it's only getting worse.<P> Remember when kids' movies didn't suck?

    Shit in a pretty box

    by smatt584

    Yes, the trailer looks badass, but so did the trailer for the first movie. Nobody is saying that the trailer visually looks bad, but we do remember the ruse from last time, pretty bait with a big mean hook inside. The people who know the difference between a movie that's mindless fun and one where only the mindless enjoy it all know what i'm talking about. We'll all see it at least once because the promise of badass robots fighting is big and shiny in our minds, but deep down, we all know it'll just be big, slow-motion American flags all over everything and John Tuturro is his underwear all over again. And anyone who doesn't think Michael Bay is out of touch needs to remember Optimus saying "my bad" and all the shitty "my parents are so uncool" moments in the first movie, like they were lifted straight from a bad 80's high school movie. I don't give a shit about the cartoon, never read the comics, and thought the toys were fun growing up, but am in no way a Transformers geek, i just like good movies, but Michael Bay hasn't made an decent enjoyable movie since Armageddon (guilty pleasure). He used to be good for some "mindless fun" movies (Bad Boys 1, Armageddon, The Rock), but now his shit is just plain retarded and i have to say that, at this point, for someone to say that they love Michael Bay just makes me shudder at the prospect of their IQ scores. Seriously, and people give Snyder shit about his slow-motion style, which he's only used in one movie, Bay does the same shit ove and over and his fans will suck him off with a smile. Fucking sheep, enjoy your "slow-mo fly-by of an American flag accross a golden sky" bullshit.

    by cool_britannia79

    The Transformers hate in the talkbacks is fucking pathetic. I'm a hardcore fan (autobot tattoo on left arm to show my allegiance) and I was pretty damn happy with Michael Bay's efforts. The original designs would suck on screen in 2009, Transformers NEEDS comedy to make it appeal to the kids (not all fans are pushing 30)and this Superbowl spot fucking blew the competition away. Hate away, it'll still gross enough to make a third, and I'll see that on opening day too.

    Stating that you're a "hardcore fan" of the franchise that the movie is based on only hurts your argument, as you would probably rather see a steaming pile of a movie based on your favorite franchise and cut it heaps of slack by chalking the tons of shitty scenes as "necessary" for kids, (while ignoring the blaringly obvious fact that the fucking movie is about giant robots fighting and is obviously going to already guarantee putting them in the seats, thus negating your reasoning), than no movie at all...

    I think the criticism there is that if Skynet can create Devastator sized bots that can smash entire buildings apart, it doesn't need to send anything back through time. It just unleashes them on mankind and watches the resistence get destroyed. I have hope for T4 though, I think it looks decent, as in better than T3. As for TF, I'm not making excuses, it was a fun movie, jokes and all. Hate on it all you like, it's gonna be awesome.

    I'm just saying...

    by smatt584

    I don't think Bay made any kind of comment about the plausibility of the film's plot (especially since that would directly attack the plausibility of humans having any kind of chance in his transformers movies either), he was quoted on his blog being all bitchy about there being big robots in another movie this summer, even though it does make sense, since Terminator shows the understandable progression of skynet to attempt to create large-scale destructive robots and makes the slow bulk of such large machines reveal their true limitations in a physics-based world, thus creating the necessity for smaller, more agile machines capable of infiltrating the human resistance and destroying them from the inside. I just hate that we're stuck with a hack director who limits the true potential of a franchise and ensures that as long the movie makes a bunch of money, (which,let's face it, it would still make money based on the strength of the brand alone regardless of who directed it), we'll be stuck with a no-talent jackass who doesn't give a shit if the movies are horrible as long as the special effects look good. If you like movies based solely on the quality of the effects, then great, just make a similar product and leave the license alone, otherwise, there will always be people like me with justified criticisms of an inferior product.

  • Feb. 2, 2009, 7:44 p.m. CST

    I don't like Bay as a person...

    by cool_britannia79

    ...I think he's a dick. And while I would love to get someone like Cameron, or Spielberg, or even some of the Japanese Anime directors to helm it, Bay delivered a balls out action spectacle. It could have been better, we could have seen Prime and Mes fighting properly, and not just in the background, but overall I was satisfied that it was a decent update to an admittedly cheesy 80's franchise.

I can live with Megatron not being a gun, and bumblebee not being a beetle because fuck, if they want to be a gun or a vw beetle they could just look at guns and beetles and become them!!! dumbest part of the 1st movie was bumblebee's "upgrade" Also enuff with the "transformers" looking like GM concept cars, best way to blend in it to become something that no-one else can buy!!! Hopefully GM goes under so they can't ruin transformer 3. And yes I will buy this DVD too, the movie won`t be bad, but it will only be a fraction of how good it could have been!!!

    by Seth Gecko

    Really! The guy is an awesome filmmaker. He makes balls to the wall action films which give you your value. He isn't Kubrick, and doesn't pretend to be. Frankly most of the fanboys on here are just jealous that they are leading lame and empty lives while Michael Bay goes and proves himself as one of, if not the most, profitable filmmaker in the world today. Auteur he is not, but he will make you eat your words this year with the biggest film of 2009. This will make over a billion. Bay doesn't give a fuck what any of you think and that is what you hate the most.

    Sounds like TF2 is all for you then - loads of loud explosions and indistinct robots you couldn't possibly draw or paint when you leave the theater because the SFX are so fucking blurry there's no definable outline to any of the robots in the damn movie.<P> Wow. Pretty sad to feel old for actually wanting to SEE the robots properly. Or maybe I just appreciate actually getting to see the designs that some conceptual designer spent a year creating, rather than watching something that looks like a load of TF toys in a washing machine, as watched by a guy on a very fast funfair ride.<P> Slow it the fuck down so we can see what's going on!<P> And if you don't appreciate the greatness of a movie like SERENITY - a movie that felt more like the original STAR WARS movies than all three prequels put together and squared - then there is officially no hope for you, and you should definitely step away from the E numbers.

    Gecko, i agree

    by smatt584

    Hating Michael Bay IS a bandwagon thing, and the more shitty movies he makes, the more people are going to jump on that bandwagon. And ironic you should mention the "fanboys". Seeing as how you're a Michael Bay fanboy and all, that's kind of like the pot calling the kettle black isn't it? The first Transformers sucked in every single scene that didn't feature giant robots fighting, which was almost half of the movie. Any scenes involving the parents or sector 7 were especially horrible to watch, like, "eight year old on an ether binge" retarded and not at all well written by any standards of decent movie-making. And there is a reason so many people hate Bay's movies. It's because he seems to expect his audiences to be retarded and Michael Bay fanboys don't seem to disappoint. If this wasn't true, then he wouldn't have had a career past "Pearl Harbor", which should be a standardized test for the "no child left behind" program (For example: "Did you like Pearl Harbor? Yes? Here's your helmet"). It's that easy. You don't have to hate him personally or even hate all of his movies to agree that he has made, and continues to make stupid, shitty fucking movies with pretty special effects, not because he has to, but because he knows his fans are too dumb to know the difference. HE DOESN'T MAKE THE SPECIAL EFFECTS, HE JUST MAKES THE SHIT THEY'RE ENCASED IN. They even had it on South Park, so it must be true! (That's a joke) I mean, it's a movie about robots fighting, so i don't expect high-brow, but there are People who still have standards, i'm sorry you don't because i can honestly say when people like you set the bar so low, you make everything worse off for the rest of the fucking world. Enjoy mediocrity, i know i won't ruin it for you, but i sure as fuck don't have to, so i'll keep bitching until we get something better. And just so you know, i sincerely hope that i'm completely, utterly, retardedly wrong and that Bay blows my fucking mind with this, because i WANT to see great movies with balls to the wall action, but not at the expense of my brain trying to claw through my eye-sockets to escape the kind of mindless bullshit that was fed to us in the first one in between short action set-pieces. But next time, before you decide to come here and defend the guy just decide on exactly who you're defending, Michael Bay, or his fx team, because they are not the same thing.

    12,000 watts of the sound of explosions and twisted metal!!!!!

    by Posthumos1

    The film company will be happy that they decided to release this one in IMAX on time. I watched the trailer during the Superbowl and it made me giddy. One of my favorite IMAX scenes in any of their movies was in Transformers when Blackout (the helicopter) stomped on the ground at the military base with that first EMP. I thought the subwoofers in IMAX were going to come through the screen. I LOVED the first one, sure it had some overly teenage melodrama parts in it, but who really cares, it more than made up for itself in the end. C'mon guys, really, they way some of you ninnys talk it's like Uwe Bolle directed Transformers. Puhhllleeeeeaaase. It rocked, and you know what? This will rock even more. AND it will get it's proper IMAX release date, unlike the first one which was late by two months. I AM SOOO EXCITED about it. Don't misinterpret my excitement for the movie to be fanboying Michael Bay, it's definitely not, I hated Pearl Harbor. But he does bring in the cash because this is movie fact: PEOPLE WANT TO WATCH SHIT BLOW UP REAL GOOD! THEY WANT TO SEE CARNAGE AND TWISTED METAL. THEY WANT IT LOUD, LOUD, LOUD! THEIR BALLS SHOULD TREMBLE! THEIR EARS SHOULD BLEED! Kevin Spacey meant it when he said it in Swimming with Sharks and he was right. Who didn't like Bad Boys, or even Armageddon, those movies had their definite faults, all actioners do. But they made bank because not only did people go see them, they went back once or even several times more. That's the ONLY way these movies open up and make 150+ million. Repeated viewings. It's why we get sequels. You holier than thou Anti-Michael Bays, Anti-Zach Snyders, and even Anti-Spielbergs/Lucas' all must be jackasses. Yup, I called you jackasses. You bitch about anything you can. You, in essence are every fucking thing that is WRONG with entertainment. Microanalyzing someone elses work and not producing anything but wasted fucking space on a film blog. Really, who the hell are you people. I have watched some of you guys give AICN about Kevin Smith and all of the aforementioned directors over the years and it never fails to make me laugh. To this point exactly NONE of you has made a movie. None of you appreciate the sacrifice that goes into film. Not that I am aware of anyway. I personally have worked on films, I am listed on IMDB. They were not successful, but they WERE work. And, smatt584, Bay didn't WRITE the shit you are so fond of complaining about either. However, he did conceive the visual feel of the movie and directed the special effects teams he hired, and he approved of what went into and came out of the editing booth. I have to ask you smatt584 this one question: Have you ever in your life worked 18-20 hours a day for eight to nine months being responsible for a project that costs over $100,000,000.00 to complete? I didn't think so.

    by smatt584

    You do know that a lot of directors alter scripts and dialogue as they shoot, right? And if what you say is supposed to make a point, then that point is that Bay just has shitty taste in scripts (or maybe just writers) and us too fucking stupid to improve them as he goes. And as for whether I've made a movie before, not only does they not disprove any of the things I've said, it is in no conceivable way related to anything in this talkback and the fact that you wrote that like it was your trump card rather than make any kind of logical argument against anything I've said just shows how fucking blindly clueless the average Michael Bay fanboy really is.

    Not a trump card at all. Just an opinion. Like an asshole. I have one just like everyone else. Here's what I think, if all you do is bitch about any of these fantasy/scifi directors and you hate their product SOOOO much that the best you can do is come on here and flame their work then you shouldn't Watch their new movies. If BAY is SOOOOOO FUCKING HORRIBLE, why the fuck do you care enough about his work to even have an opinion? To read a review of a movie and decide whether or not you'll wacht it is one thing. But to have decided that the totality of someone's career is utter pig shit then come in here to point out what you see to be the obvious is just fucking clown shoes. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, and I respect that, but your opinion, in my opinion it contrary to mine. And in MY OPINION, your post and several others, are from a JACKASS point of view that you will judge a whole film on a fucking teaser trailer. Just by jumping on a sad bandwagon of haters who don't like that someone REGULARLY gets greenlit for $100 million dollar projects and actually puts asses in the seats because he is in touch, obviously, with what his film demographic wants to see. AND...If shitty acting, flashy special effects, and melodrama are things that only retarded fanboys can appreciate then you obviously aren't a fan of Star Wars (even the first three), Star Trek (any of them), or any of the other classics. There is a trade off in this genre. There are only a hand full of scifi/fantasy movies out there that are both acutally well written and flawlessly directed. And you could probably nail, out of those down to either Ridley Scott, James Cameron, or Speilberg. But there are a VERY good amount of totally enjoyable films that sacrifice a bit of cheese for a good movie. See, no trump card, I just think your post sucks. :)
