New TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON Daytona 500 Ad!

Published at: Feb. 20, 2011, 3:04 p.m. CST by AICNStaff

Nordling here.

At the Daytona 500 this weekend a new TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON 30-second trailer aired. This one shows off more cars than the Super Bowl ad, although it has much of the same footage:

 

I'm warming up to this movie, I must say.  I still loathe REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, but... this one's looking more promising by the day.

Nordling, out.

    OK HATERS, YOUR TURN....

    by Witwiki50

    people who hate on this movie, or the previous one, what exactly would you have in the Transformers that Micheal Bay hasnt? Why dont some of you write how you would set out the movie and how you would involve the action, instead of just saying how much its ruined?! I would love to hear some peoples visions on this, because quite frankly, its a fucking huge movie scale, which i think Bay has handled really well

    Dazed and Confused - Why Mr. Bay?

    by Dr. Egon Spengler

    Why does there always have to be "that chick" in your Transformer movies who stands there in the middle of all the crazy shit going on around her, with a dazed, confused, and dumb look on her face? I'll give you credit though, this one gives that look a lot better than that scummy Fox girl did in the last two.

  • Feb. 20, 2011, 3:41 p.m. CST

    This looks pretty cool

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    T2 was pretty much just a few edits away from being Ok (a fault I lay on the hands of a rushed production and a writters strike) But they seem to have known what was wrong with T2 and are trying to fix the issues for this one Speaking of T2, I wonder if Bay will ever re-cut it and put out a director's cut

  • Feb. 20, 2011, 3:43 p.m. CST

    This looks better? Did'nt ROTF had a far better epic trailer?...

    by MST3KPIMP

    and that sucked all kinds of dick.. i still cant get over how these mega-budgeted spectacles have failed to consistantly show robots transforming into vehicles and vice versa. Just close up blurry shots of parts moving and mis-direction. reboot please

    by Kai_Mah'gra

    ....but at the end of the day you know that this will be the highest grossing movie of the summer, and probably of the entire year as well. And Bay will probably start tp get to work on "Transformers 4 : Insert gibberish tagline here" before the year is out.

  • Feb. 20, 2011, 3:55 p.m. CST

    The humor thingy...

    by RenoReno

    I agree with that. I loved the first one and the second one was still fun to watch (gets better on a re-watch), but they would be much more timeless if the 'silly' humor werent there. Most of Turturro's lines or over the top men in black kinda mannerisms. Michael Bay should try to keep the same balance he did with THE ROCK, where funny quips were welcomed at moments. Is like what happens with the INDIANA JONES trilogy where RAIDERS of the Lost Ark is a very serious film with small funny moments and by the time we have THE LAST CRUSADE is practically a funny movie with adventure sprinkled around loosing that "timeless" flavor. Same with LETHAL WEAPON. The first one is a very serious action flick with nuggets of funny mini-moments but at no moment you loose respect for the characters. By the 3rd one is just a comedy... Transformers should keep, within its film fantasy world, a seriousness with tiny funny moments, no break-dancing robots or over the top Turturro's lines that makes the film feel like for 3 years old.

    Things I'd have in Transformers...

    by I Hope You Die

    There'd be some sort of logical connection between successive scenes, this would be combined into a larger structure I would call a "narrative." Hollywood has apparently succeeded in severely dumbing down the audience in the last 20 years. It's hard to believe the 80s were once considered the worst decade of film. Little did we know.

    Wow, if you judge the whole movie for that tiny scene, I will not argue with you...since , well, we do not agree. Actually what you say is exactly what I mean. The movie has that "real" feel and tiny moments like the nazi-monkey.

  • Feb. 20, 2011, 4:02 p.m. CST

    Looking more promising?!?

    by bubcus

    This looks like two more hours of the same stuff we've already been subjected to. I don't consider myself a Michael Bay hater. I liked Armageddon and was okay with Pearl Harbor and I actually enjoyed his first Transformers film to a fair extent. But after watching both Transformer films and his Victoria Secret commercials, I am having a hard time taking him seriously. I'll probably see this in theaters anyway. I am just... not all that fired up about it.

    mr ahole ramirez

    by RenoReno

    Definitely agree, thats why I say that 'within his film fantasy world' of transformers. I am not saying to make it ONLY for adults, but to balance it a bit better. Raiders, EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, LORD of the Rings are films that are loved by child AND adults and when you leave the theater you dont feel like you just watched something ONLY for kids. The first transformers has it right ...until Turturro appears acting way over the top. Without his character the movie would STILL BE transformers but no 'dumbed down' for kids.

    by TDH1138

    It's a movie series based on a toy. Let's take it a step further... it's a movie series based on a toy that is a bunch of cars and random objects that change into robots and fight. People going into ANY Transformers film expecting ANYTHING more then explosions, big robots fighting and a hot girl running around with her belly showing should wear tinfoil on their heads so we KNOW WHO YOU ARE! Leave your brain at the door and have fun. I liked the first film, was entertained by the second (plot holes and all) and I'll see three with the same low expectations and probably love it. Why anyone would get their hopes up high for a Bay movie escapes me.

  • I'm thankful we even get something like this. Looks fun and I agree with tdh1138.

    Terminator vs. Transformers

    by Green

    By linking up with the newly built SKYNET Defense System, the Decepticons are able to wipe out Optimus Prime and the Autobots. They take over Earth and begin the extermination of humanity. 10 years later, an older Shia LeBoeuf joins forces with John Connor whose own army is in disarray. Together they struggle to defeat the robots' ultimate weapon: a 50-foot Terminator/Decepticon hybrid who looks like Megan Fox. All seems lost until they reactivate the Arnold Schwartzenegger Terminator and manage to place his electronic brain in Megan Fox's skyscraper size body. With the help of "MegArn", the two heroes manage to turn the tide of the war. Though victorious, Earth is left in uninhabitable ruins. Shia and John Connor create a new starship -- called TITANIC -- and blast off into space in search of a new home. Unfortunately, Billy Zane has stowed away on the ship and a deadly love triangle forms between the three. The film ends with the starship accidentally slamming into an icy asteroid, leaving the audience to wonder whose heart will indeed go on...

    G1 Transformer fans are the biggest idiots on the planet!

    by CeejayNightwing

    They actually believe that those toys had a concept, a design and a story worthy of retaining for the big screen in all its 1980's glory! The fact that even at its most infantile moments, Michael Bay's version still makes more sense than the cartoon or comic versions of the stories they followed like cult members into their adulthood. There was zero continuity between the Toys, the Cartoon and the Comic in the 80's, nothing any idiot fan can say was the definitive, most canon line to follow. It was all just stupid tales to sell toys and to expect anything more from these live action movies is a sign of how dumb these kids grew up to be in their adulthood. You can argue with these idiots till you're blue in the face, they only see their childhood and all common sense goes out of the window. Bays films are no narrative genius, the plots are microwave-meal level basic and the performances range from earnest to outright offensive and stupid. But they deliver on the entertainment front and heavily on spectacle enough to be worthy of a summer popcorn movie viewing and nothing more. I'm looking forward to the end of his trilogy and hope it makes even more money than the last two JUST to rub it in those idiot fanboys faces! All I expect from these movies is one cool scene of Optomus Prime kicking ass and none of them have let me down so far in that!

    TF Cartoons

    by TheUltimateMathTeacher

    Were awesome when I was a kid. I was in 4th grade when they hit and I was immediately hooked. I knew back then, even as a stupid little kid, that the TF cartoons were 30 minute commercials to make me buy the toys. Everything past the first 1.5 seasons were awful episodes, but I kept watching for the fun. MB did not wreck the name Transformers for me in any way. Any cartoon fanboy just needs to go watch one of the many horrendous episodes (like some of the TF's get cast as extras in a movie. Really??) to see what I mean.

    by BadMrWonka

    I know, right? I mean, people might as well go into a movie about a guy dressing like a bat fighting a crazy guy in clown make-up, and expect good writing, acting, pacing, plot, etc. Who could be that stupid, right? Not that I expect anything but more crap from this one, like the first two...that's certainly not my argument. This will surely be crap. But big, summer action movies don't have to be insultingly stupid. BIG ROBOTS GO CRASH is fine and all, but if someone other than Bay did it, we could have our fun with it and not feel like our brain was leaking out of our ears. We might not have every black character screaming like a stereotype, no gaping plot holes, no unresolved plot lines, no needless characters, clumsy and almost unbelievable badly written exposition, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Iron Man, Dark Knight, and plenty of other movies prove you can have big, large scale fun, but if you hire a real director, and real screenwriters, you can end up with a thoroughly enjoyable movie. Whereas with Bay, you get one that is enjoyable to only kids, and, well...people like you who have succeeded in lowering their expectations so far, Bay would have to slap you with his dick during the entirety of Act III for you to not enjoy his crappy movies.

    Actually sir, judging from your defense of a Michael Bay movie i'd have to say it were you who are the idiot. <br> Yeah, I'm a G1 fan. So what? Even if I didn't have the slightest interest in the original show that I grew up with I would still think these Bay movies were shit. The only half way decent movie Bay has done in my opinion so far has been "The Rock". I've hated everything else he has done. I'll give the guy credit on special effects and SOME of his action scenes. But these do not a movie make. It's all about story and characters. If those two things suck then you're not going to be able to build a decent movie without them. Apparently he hasn't learned that yet and unfortunately neither have you. And as much as I hate to offend anyone else that are fans of these type of movies I feel that they are made for people who suffer from ADD, are unable to concentrate on a coherent storyline and just want to watch a bunch of juvenile humor and explosions on the screen for an hour and a half. I apologize for that but thats how I feel about them. I see no reason why you're expected to "turn your brain off" to enjoy watching a movie. The only thing that does is dumb down the audience and causes them to expect less from their entertainment. Thats why a good 80% of movies that are made now are total crap. <br> And to quote you... "The fact that even at its most infantile moments, Michael Bay's version still makes more sense than the cartoon or comic versions of the stories they followed like cult members into their adulthood." End quote. <br> This just shows that you're completely ignorant in what you're talking about. Can you honestly say that you have researched this by either watching said cartoon or read said comic and came to this conclusion as your honest opinion? Or are you just talking shit. I believe it's the latter. Granted I haven't done either in many years myself. But from what I remember of them(because I DID read and watch them)I can honestly say that some of those storylines would be considered shakespeare compared to Bays crap storytelling. And to make it even worse. Those story's back then WERE aimed at children. Not young adults like these Bay movies are. Correct me if i'm wrong but are Bays movies not PG-13? Hell, I came up with better story's when I was eight years old and playing with the damn toys. <br> I can understand having to update a property for a more modern release. I don't have a problem with that. But the point of "updating" something is to make it better not worse as it is in this case. If you're a fan of this shit then I feel sorry for you.

    Last Bayformers. Let the Reboot begin! Til' All Are One!

    by GornPirate

    I have not hated on Bayformers as much as a lot of people have but clearly the last one was highly flawed and they never met the potential this franchise I think has in terms of epic badassery. Even Bay admitted it himself. But Bay did do one thing, he proved that Transformers as a franchise and concept could do well with a big general movie audience and he introduced the idea of giant fucking robots that turn into cars and other neat shit to people who had never heard of them or cared. So now lets hope they wait a few years and take the franchise back to Cybertron and let us have a trilogy that focuses more on the robots and less on the human characters. Transformers lends itself to almost always being a big summer popcorn movie. But now that the franchise has proven it can rake in giant wads of cash, maybe Hasbro and Paramount will give the next Director a huge budget and take the Transformers to the next level.

  • Most people only knew Batman from the Adam West series and Superfriends. It was only when Nolan did the Dark Knight did Batman get mainstream crediblity as a great character. Hell, most snobs still deny Batman is decent fiction. If you told them Batman was far superior fiction to any 80's cartoon and they'd laugh in your face. Go back 25 years and they'd lock you in a looney bin. Batman is still a guy dressed as bat fighting costumed crazy people. It is the comic writers who add the details that give the concept credibility. The same could be done for Transformers. Living machines fighting for intergalactic freedom/tyranny with Earth being nothing more than a strategic energy outpost to either exploit or protect. That concept has just as much potential for storytelling as a rich kid who grows up to fight crazed criminals while dressed as a flying rodent. The limitations are with the writers imagination. They're the ones who make these concepts strong or weak based on the level of detail and sophistication added. Batman is stupid trash until you have writers who take it seriously.

    Okay, say what you want about part 2

    I can't deny that as insane as the effects were, the movie was lacking but the first Transformers is still a great piece of action cinema that offered up some goddamn BRILLIANT effects and action.

    Here's what to do...

    by droids22

    Lets take all the money we made from the Transformers and do something epic like a dragon riders trilogy. Think of all the cool literature that is out there waiting! We got got amazing fantasy artists out there! They probably won't because Eragon didn't make money but Eragon is dragon riders for teens come on!

  • You're adults. I don't know how many of you are my age (40), but when I first saw Star Wars at the age of 7, it was with the eyes of a 7 year old child with no expectations or preconceived notions of what the movie should have been, and I loved it. None of you have that sense of wonder any more. You're all older, cynical and jaded. NOTHING will ever be as good as the movies of your youth. Well guess what? The movies of your youth weren't that great. My youngest child (a 9 year old GIRL) loves the Transformer movies, and I enjoy them immensely as well, partly because I enjoy and experience them with her. Are there things about the movies I don't like? Sure, but I, scratch that, WE will still be there opening day.

    Well Sir, there's your typical G1 fanboys narrow-vision and logic in one. You see it as a defence of Michael Bay therefore I must be a fan! ...Idiot! I aint defending Bay, I'm ridiculing you and your kind who think this is supposed to be something AMAZING beyond a lot of robots turning into vehicles and hitting each other. Literally, that's what the toys were made for, that's the spirit of the source material right there. You don't like the jokes and toilet humour? Well nor do I but I don't give a crap, it's a film about a bunch of Toys and I'm nearly 45 years too old to care! There are like hundreds of quality books, TV shows and comics being adapted into movies that suck and they actually come from QUALITY source material. Why the fuck are you retards so hung up about a toy merchandise exercise being magically presented as the next Star Wars trilogy is beyond any level of rational thought! You simply have to be an idiot and further more an idiot with a vast lack of life experiences of any real value since childhood; to even begin to repeatedly post seriously about hating this stuff becasue of what it is. WAKE UP, its a dumb action flick with great visuals, we all know its shite, but its also significant percentage of guilty pleasure and fun so we don't care about your silly TOYS or their Cartoons and Comics or their many Japanese spin off variations to all the above that you G1 fans want to ignore as canon in the ridiculously over merchandised Transformer toy line. Hasbro has raped your childhood and now its jerking off your adult hood while sticking a pinky up your arse and your too busy wishing for the sugar plum fairy to notice, IDIOT!

Naughty robots visit earth on spring break to recover said artefact and fuck up the planet. 5. Snoozy LePork gets unfeasibly hot girl (UHG) to go out with him - I can only think she loves the car. 6. Heavily outgunned Marines led by unfeasibly handsome Josh Duhamel find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Again. 7. Heavily outgunned Marines saved by sudden appearance of giant goodie robots. 8 Goodie robots and naughty robots fight - very loudly - in a built-up area so as to cause as much collateral damage as possibly. 9. Snoozy and UHG somehow gain control of artefact and become target of naughty robots' anger. 10. Snoozy and UHG saved by selfless act of goodie robot. 11. UHG continues to date Snoozy despite him repeatedly putting her in mortal terror. 12. Film ends with some hint as to the plot of the next sequel. 13. Michael Bay makes an obscene amount of money. How did I do?

    'Easy Riders, Raging Bulls' is a fantastic book

    by TheUmpireStrokesBach

    I'm not sure how a historical, journalistic account of the 70's film movement doesn't count as a "real book" in mattman's eyes, but I totally side with creepythinmanlives when it comes to this particular "fake(?)" book. It's just so unbelievably stuffed with information about that era. Sure you've seen the movies mattman, and heard a lot of the commentaries no doubt, but that book really yanks back the curtain so to speak..and goddamn if it isn't just an insanely enjoyable read. And I don't mean this as some kind of taunt mattman, but as much as you obviously have an interest in film, I guarantee that you'd find something to enjoy about 'Easy Riders, Raging Bulls'.

    "Did ya see what I did there PEOPLE? WAS That SPOT GREAT?"

    by conspiracy

    Bay roared to nobody in particular after the trailer screening. "Well...?" Silence; the only noise in the room came from Michael himself as marketing staff stood in terror, eyes cast towards the floor. Bay lifted his shirtless body from his black leather sofa and walked to the monitor, his black laether pants creaking with every step. "Every fucking thrill billy in the good 'ol USA will spunk his sisters hairy back when he see's that....Won't they...WELL MOTHERFUCKERS!?" "um....Miche..."; Bay turned on the spot, looking towards the young suit standing near the table next to his casting couch; "MR. BAY...,you nebbish FUCK!" screamed Spielbergs adopted pitbull.The suits face drained of color as the billion dollar director cast his dilated pupils upon him..."Mr.Bay...sorry....I, um....well...I ...WE...we have nothing but the up most respect for you...sir..., and your numbers, fuck your numbers speak for themselves;" the young desk jockey searched for the words, seeking to find a way to avoid the bullet now headed right for the heart of his career;"but...I...we...well...we aren't really sure exactly what it was we just saw....Mr.Bay...sir." Bay stood...his bare chest heaving, his face blank. Slowly he walked over to the young suit. "Mr. Bay..Tod was..." said a 40ish woman on the far side of the room; "Tod was what...Marge....no, TOD...is right...he has questions...it is good he asks them" Bay cooly spoke as he sashayed towards 'Tod', whose gaze was now firmly affixed to the floor. "Sit down Tod...no...really sit down..it's ok...thats why I asked you people in here..I WANT your fuckin input...go on sit down." Slowly the young executive took a seat upon Bays infamous couch...the very couch it was said where he Megan Fox launcher her improbable career. "have a toot...Tod..." Bay implored, gesturing to one of the many powdery rails arrayed upon the glass table. Bay collapsed on the couch next to Tod, throwing his arm around the young man as he leaned forward over the glass table, overjoyed as he was that the great Director would be so generous and open. "Tod...this spot is running during the Daytons 500...right?" Tod nodded in the affirmative. "And what is it people want to see when they watch NASCAR Tod..." Bay queried. "Well....Mr. Bay..." Tod spoke, a small trace of white clung to his right nostril, "...they want excitement...and cars obviously...and marketing shows they relate to the personalities of the drivers, and..." Bay nodded...listening intently to the young man. "uh huh...yep..." he agreed as Tod went down the list of reasons, before finally ending the list. "Tod...you sure do know your marketing...I'll say that; TOD here people...really knows what people want to see folks" Bay called out to the other suits standing in the shadows. "But Tod...you are wrong..., do you really want to know what these #3 Nazi Saluting, sister lusting, cheap beer swilling, jingoistic lemmings want too see above every other fucking thing in this world TOD...?" Bay said as he ran his powerful hand through Tods slightly Bieberish hair as the young man bent to fill his left nostril with Bolivias finest "No...Mr. Bay...what.." Tod said as he looked back over his shoulder at the now flush faced Bay. With a Powerful move Bay grabbed the mans hair, pulling him back before slamming his face down into and through the glass. Marge screamed as the glass shattered, coke, blood, and a half empty tumbler of Glenfiddich flew through the room. "THEY...WANT....TO...SEE...SHIT...BLOWING UP TOD! SHIT BLOWING UP!! Bellowed an enraged Bay at the unconscious and bleeding Tod. "NOW...DID YOU PEOPLE SEE WHAT I DID HERE? WAS that SPOT GREAT? "

    "And I'm well versed in 70s cinema. I don't need a book to tell me what made that era special." Yeah, one just needs to watch those 70s movies to figure out why they were special, isn't it?

  • And take out the giant robots and you have also described all the plots of the other Bayass movies.

  • By the same author was writen a great book about the sumemr of 1998, there year where all of holywood's predictions at the box office failed and the studios were at a loss of what really happened. The book is called THE GROSS, and it's fascinating reading as well. Sinc eit also talks about ARMAGEDDON, it has paragraphs about Michael Bay, and he cames out very poorly and very childish. A feud he had with a jornalism is the stuff of pure hilarity.

    Good or Bad - Compared to What Exactly?

    by SHADOWPRIME

    I enjoyed the first Transformers movie. In fact, it surprised me. It took the concept of giant alien robots who come to Earth, and disguise themselves as cars, planes, trucks, etc, and made a movie which was entertaining, fun, and which nonTransformers geeks could enjoy (and that is not offered in a condescending way; I enjoyed the cartoons and toys and still do!). I thought the robot designs were kinda "busy", I thought that the fight scenes were not as easy to follow as they should have been, in parts, largely BECAUSE of the busy designs, but overall, I liked it. REVENGE OF THE FALLEN? Eh. The scenes with the robots were good, the action well done (again, a bit hard to follow at times!), but I think the human elements just didn't work. You could see a lot of the same "feel" from the first movie, but taken a step or two or ten too far - the parents were mortifying this time around, the room-mate was an embarassment, John Turturo's character (which was problematic in the first movie) often veered from problematic to WAY TOO MUCH... so yeah, a step, or several steps, down from the first movie. But when I read the comments on here, i would think TRANSFORMERS was Shakespeare or something. Seriously. And I say this as someone who loved the cartoons, and has more than a few TRANSFORMER toys perched on bookshelves around this place ... come on people. THis is a series about the "AUTOBOTS' and "DECEPTICONS" for goodness sake. Giant transforming robot cars and planes and such bashing each other and blowing stuff up. Can they do better than FALLEN? Yes, and i sure hope they do. But, for me, if they recapture the tone of the FIRST movie, I will be totally happy. I realize it violates the AICN code to affect anything but a tone of snotty jaded superiority or outraged fanboy fury that some "canon" is not being respected, but ... lighten up guys. Seriously.

    by Kamaji

    Every other clip of her, they never have her talk. Then again, Bay is known for having girls just stare blankly into the camera (Liv Tyler in 'Armageddon' comes readily to mind). Sadly, Bay's got me wrapped around his little finger just out of my sheer curiosity to see Chicago trashed by aliens...as well as all the calories I burned walking all over the city for a month finding the vehicles and seeing them film scenes. Though I don't know how well having Bumblebee and other Transformers look like KITT after he got his upgrades in that one Knight Rider episode will be. I do see Bay has that habit of using 'every part of the buffalo' in his camera angles. One of the Wreckers is actually driving South on La Salle, while the other two are heading North. Bay is known for odd, jarring camera angles. As well, there's a construction crane in the back of one shot by the board of trade that was used for an effects spider-cam shot.

    The Joke is always on the Transformer Haters...

    by CeejayNightwing

    The vast majority of the world now only recognise Transformers foremost by the Bay films, the films are so popular and make so much money that its dwarfed all other conceptions of the original toys. If you Googled the word "Transformers" in an image search, the vast majority of pictures you'll get is from Bay's movie versions. Google any of the characters and its the same, this is what the kids from the last 5 years know as Transformers and will take into their teens and adulthoods as the definitive version for their generation. It must hurt like hell to be a G1 fanboy in this day an age still burning a torch for the cartoons from the 80's like some idiot who never got over his first love at school! Pathetically all they have left is this crap... "Bayformers!" :-( "Gayformers!" :-( ..which let's face it is playground level stuff! And worse of all, no matter how bad they trash these films they end up making even more money like the Star Wars prequels. And the regular public don't even know they exist unlike the other more notorious angry nerds like Star Wars OT, Star Trek or Harry Potter fanboy purists!

    It's just funny how Bay Apologists have to watch Bay come out a year later and say he made a shit movie. All they have is the first week of box office profits to hide behind and croon over, while anyone with common sense will tell you his first two TF movies were pretty lame. Kevin Smith said it best that Transformers would still make a shit load of money if they just had objects running past the screen transforming into robots only. No need for actors or a plot. How true that turned out to be. But hey, we made a boat load of money. That's fine, yet in a few months no one will even remember this Bay TF crap next to whatever new cgi monsters, robots, and other eye candy that gets slapped up on the screen and the final ending of this garbage with the DVD release in November. The only reason anyone even remembers the Star Wars prequels is because of the nostalgia of the first three movies combined with the total failure of Jar Jar Binks and a ten year old kid full of cosmic sea monkeys. The only good thing to come after the fact from the prequels was the snarky review on Youtube and their endorsement of Hotpockets. Bayformers can only hope for such a lasting legacy. I'm glad Bay is finally quitting this mess, as so he can concentrate on funding the new cinema classics like I am number 4. Seriously a Dog Monster that's here to protect a douche bag alien. Pure win for all.

    Dude, you are just too funny. And I mean that sarcastically as in "sad funny". I'm assuming from some of your spelling/phrases that you must be on the other side of the ocean. So I don't want any problems with translation. Or you're just a poseur. Thats even sadder if true. (about the poseur thing) But whatever, I just wanted to make sure you understood what I meant. <br> First off, why don't you go back and reread what I wrote in response to you. Basically everything your going off about I never even made comments on. The only thing you're doing by not making a coherent argument is reinforcing the fact of who these movies are made for. The lowest common denominator. All i'm asking for is a decent movie. Whats wrong with that? I ask that from all movies. What is my being a G1 fan have to do with that? I would prefer to see Prime and Megatron in a TF movie but if they had replaced them with Popperbot and Metalface I would go along with it as long as it had a DECENT FUCKING STORY! DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? I don't have to WAKE UP and realize what kind of movies these are. I already know. I thought I previously stated that. And I thought I explained myself fairly well as to WHY I don't like them. I can actually use your own argument against you. <br> Quote:" I'm ridiculing you and your kind who think this is supposed to be something AMAZING beyond a lot of robots turning into vehicles and hitting each other. Literally, that's what the toys were made for, that's the spirit of the source material right there." <br> Ok, so if thats what you're going with then the same can be said for pretty much every other movie that has been adapted from a similiar source. Lets say for example..Batman? Batman has been a comic,cartoon and toy line just like Transformers. So in a Batman movie all you want to see is Batman and say Joker fighting for about 2 hours? Thats literally what you're saying. What about Superman? He's been a comic,cartoon and toy line also. So you you just want to watch him and Doomsday go at it for a couple hours? What about Spider-man and Doc Ock? The Hulk and Abomination? There's the good guys who fight the bad guys. Thats the source material right there. Thats basically what it comes down to and thats literally what you're saying you want to see in a movie. The good guy and the bad guy having it out the entire time. Just disregard all of the already established stories and character development that has been made over the years. Who wants to see that? That equals boring to you. <br> And seriously Ceejay, You want to know something? You keep stating that us G1 fans are idiots because we don't like these Bay TF movies. Because we expect more from them? You said yourself that they're all "dumb action flicks with great visuals. A guilty pleasure and fun." Thats because when we were kids we were entertained by that stuff to. But we grew up. We're not entertained by it anymore. I think it's pretty obvious here who hasn't had any life experiences.

Transformers is GARBAGE, and don't give me that fucking shit about how the cartoon was the same meaningless babble or whatever you nerds fight about. These are movies aimed DIRECTLY at children, if children knew what pot and sex and dog fucking humor was. These movies are devoid of every aspect that make us fucking HUMAN, and as such are a direct attack on HUMANITY ITSELF. The sheer fucking contemption and idiocy of these movies are like being assaulted to our very fucking CORES. The only redemption is how great the visual effects, granted you can tell what the fuck is going ON FOR CHRISTS SAKE. At least George Lucas SAID his prequels were for kids, then TRIED to write them like a "big boy. These are unadulterated pieces of fucking shit that look good on your generic 42' plasma. So shove it.

    Refering to your other asinine post. Everything is cyclical. There has been quite a few versions of Transformers over the years. Bays version is no different. It will be forgotten in a couple years regardless of how much money they made. Do you honestly think that they'll keep making toys of them in the years to come? <br> The only ones with staying power are the originals. Why do you think they keep making merchandise of them? Comics? Etc.,., Why do they keep reintroducing the same G1 based characters in every new version of transformers that is produced? <br> But whatever. Who cares? People like you just don't get it. Cause lets face it. You're stupid.

    its true nothing makes me feel more like a man than punching my fist in the air to the journey of Sam Witwicky, and thinking of Megan fox being given the boot for being such an annoying hippy who doesnt like to get in helicopters and ask no questions.

    because they're busy visiting your Dad and explaining why you and Mc Hammer seriously need loving another way than cookies, or having his dick shoved down your sorry throats on impulse.<p> They're trying to make him realise its making you superficially gay and self-loathing and hateful of actual gays, as opposed to the molestation victims of the dark lord like you sorry pair. Breath in breath out Buddy...you can do it....its fresh air...the dick down your throat everytime you inhale-exhale is all in your mind right now... for those precious few moments anyway

  • you sound like a whiney crying little man-girl homophobe who doesn't know what happened to his once great country. Palin thinks your more pathetic than any liberal for all your gay bashing and required class A delusion and ignorance, oh yes she does so get over it nazi-lover. <p>I'm not going to apologise for you chocking on your blowhard Daddy everyday whether you like it or not, and having rage filled tears for the gays as a result. Again you sound like the worst kind of dumb self-loathing faux-queer. Yeah maybe if im a mentally disabled simpleton writing catchy punchy simpleton phrases i might get at least one laugh here from you, or your gay self-loathing Christian mates. I know which i prefer. LoL

    Some Changes Would be Great

    by SHADOWPRIME

    Anyone suggesting that there should be an end to the stupidly crude 'humor', the robo-leg humping and urinating, the cringe-inducing "comic relief" being supplied by the parents, the "twins", the room mate, and John Turturo (although if they scaled him back some, I could live with him!), will get no arguments from me. To me, these were the elements that knocked FALLEN down a couple of pegs. But again, I thought the tone of the first one was just about right...

    braindrain "rolls his eyes" at the trailer for Battle: L.A. and yet gives a "Hell Yeah" for the latest Bay piece of shit. Yes, there's some irony for you. A dedication for Megan Fox? You really are the fuck out of touch with reality, aren't you?

    i predict this will be like the first two

    by Smack_Teddy

    but with a slightly better or much better script, and Bay making overt efforts in more than a few places to have the action/robot vs robot fights be at least slightly comprehensible

    I have to disagree. Michelle Bay makes movies for girly in-the-closet nancyboys who think themselves manly for whatever absurd reasons that only their minds understand. You are right about Jar Jar Abrams, though.

    "i predict this will be like the first two but with a slightly better or much better script, and Bay making overt efforts in more than a few places to have the action/robot vs robot fights be at least slightly comprehensible" Are you mad? This is Micvkey Bay-ass we are talkign about here. That guy guy never evolves, he only devolves. He's getting worst, not better. And he started shitty already. Really, i don't get it, where do people get this optimisitic shit about Bay? Why are people still hoping for the best in the next Bay-ass movie? A nearly 20 years career of making nothing but shit still haven't given you a clue yet?

    The TRASHFUCKMERS trailers are always the same:

    by AsimovLives

    They all are very dramatic, look all so serious, makes the movie look like this time the story will be more serous and dark, and then, when the movies are finally released, we see all those movies are just the most mind-boggling silly foolish fluff imaginable. And is ee that, from this trailer, Bayass turned another pretty girl into the typical a trailer-trash junkie looks that every woman in a Bay movie has. The fucker sure loves his women heroin-addicted trailer park trash looking.

    I actually liked the first one......

    second one was warmed over vomit, though.

    right Asimov..."turn around!..."

    by Smack_Teddy

    but i still predict based on comments he will make a CONCIOUS EFFORT to make the action scenes more comprehensible... even for the guy you desribe that shouldnt be too hard to pull of while keeping his more usual sensibilities if he focuses on this issue. Otherwise he'd be too dumb to even figure out to pick up a camera or where the record button on one is, or the concept of montage full stop (and that does NOT mean he has to be considered the contemporary fucking Sergei Eisenstein just because he has at least a basic grasp of this ok?) and wouldnt even be making movies to begin with, i believe.
