simplicimus: How about, don't do it?
taoistlumberjak: I want to see him re-use a scene from a previous movie.
PsyLord: nekkid female sebots!
Wayne 985: taoistlumberjak: I want to see him re-use a scene from a previous movie.You already have. I mean, not literally, but in principle. I saw the first two Transformers movies, and they both seemed like the same poorly filmed trash, except the second one was somehow worse.
Mugato: Yeah we get it, you're a big Hollywood director who is terrible creatively but no one can do anything about it because you have a lot of signed contracts. Who cares, it doesn't change the fact that you suck.
INeedAName: I didnt rtfa, so I assumed Subby meant Terminator 4.No one refers to the Transfomers as T anything.
LDM90: I don't get the people who just want robot battles.
LDM90: I don't get the people who just want robot battles. Isn't that pretty much what we got? I want a story for once. The old cartoon had a cool story.
GreenAdder: Hot Rod / Rodimus / Unicron.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: A new director
Ishkur: I have an idea...How about a robot civil war on a distant planet that bleeds its resources dry, forcing both factions to seek extraterrestrial sources of energy to continue the fight, and they both find Earth around relatively the same time. One of the robot factions is benevolent and wants to bargain for our resources, the other is malevolent and wants to suck the planet dry. They fight and we get caught in the crossfire.And you know why this plot will work? Because it was the farkING TV SHOW 30 YEARS AGO.I sometimes think these filmmakers over-think their bloated franchises and stuff them with so many characters, factions and sub-plots in an attempt to go for that bombastically epic feel that the inverse happens: The movie comes out looking like an obstinate, overwrought god damn mess. No cohesion or focus at all.Take a cue from James Cameron (who has never been known to make a bad action movie), and keep the plot simple. Robot civil war. Earth. Fighting for resources. That's all that has to happen. It's simple, it's definable, and it will resonate with today's generation living in a looming age of globalization, dwindling resources, an impending energy crisis, climate change and overpopulation. Don't weigh things down in inane McGuffins or turgid backstory.So fark mythology, fark destiny and prophecy, fark the all-spark and any other lame McGuffin bullshiat, fark the douchebag kid and his MTV date movie contrived plot with his idiot parents and stupid getting-laid-schemes. And fark the movie robots -- fark their slapstick bullshiat, their pooping, peeing, farting, doghouse stepping, testicle dragging geriatric accents, their absent-minded babble, and their Three Stooges buffoonery. These are intelligent alien war death machines -- essentially a league of robot superheroes -- and they're reduced to toilet jokes -- how insulting is that? What if Christopher Nolan gave Batman uncontrollable flatulence or Jon Favreau made Ironman pinch a loaf inside his sui ...
