farkeruk: bark_atda_moon: Can't they just take the money from this film and make Pacific Rim 2 instead?  It is amazing how much better a ridiculous robot movie can be when the viewer can tell WTF is happening during battles.

It's more than just that. PR just had people who'd actually tried to make a story that made some sense, with some ideas, with interesting characters and that looked farking cool in all sorts of ways. I don't think it entirely succeeded, but Michael Bay just poops out his movies. There's no sense of even trying to make a good film.


...I'm not seeing the love for Pacific Rim.

Cinematography aside, not much else works about it.  It's Rock Em Sock Em Robots, except one of the robots is a monster.  And the movie doesn't follow its' own logic at times - Kaiju blood is supposedly toxic to the environment.  So with that in mind, let's hopelessly contaminate large parts of Hong Kong, because...well, why the fark not?

If they do a 5, then let us have Unicron.  He would be literal Armageddon on two legs.  Or, the Junkions, I'm flexible either way.

Wendy's Chili: Oops, wrong thread.


Someone didn't see the second movie then.

The problem with Pacific Rim is that the Kaiju threat is already an established part of the fictional universe. It would have caught on with audiences more if they had been allowed to experience the genesis of the threat along with the movie characters.

Most of the Bay robot modes already look like Junkions.  But give me Wreck-Gar voiced by "Weird Al" or Eric Idle, and I'll turn off my brain for another Orci-Kurtzman film.

/I enjoyed the first film.  You have to tell the story of robots arriving on Earth through the lens of the human perspective.  Otherwise, why bother having them come to Earth at all or having them transform into Earth vehicles?  The next films, however...

I'm really sick of people biatching about stuff that's explained in the first five minutes of the flick.  If you're going to watch the thing, then pay some damned attention before forming your opinion.

I think they may be alluding to Unicron in this new trilogy.  Junkions...and let Weird Al voice them.

Uncle Pooky: meathome: When was Hound gruff?

Might want to wait until the movie actually comes out before deconstructing the characterization.


It's Subby's description I'm questioning.  "Gruff" isn't a term used in the article linked.

Screenrant has a better article, one where they actually use the word "gruff" and explain where they think Bay is going with the character (and then point out precisely what I did regarding Hound's personality; providing their own idea of what to expect).

The Hound doesn't roll on the Sabbath.

SHOMER SHABBAS!!!

Searching around that link I came across the pics of what the transformers are supposed to look like in the new movie.

well then my advice applies to you, Subby, Screenrant article author, and whoever else.

Crotchrocket Slim: Dinobot: Alphax: I don't remember an Autobot named Drift.

I remember Hound, but his voice was nothing like John Goodman.

charlesmartel11235: i feel like the original transformers was a show designed to sell toys to children, not some hallowed jewel that michael bay is like defiling

I see no resemblance between the two, aside from some names.

Drift was created some years ago for the IDW comics. The problem is that when he was introduced, he was like a combination of Wolverine and Wesley Crusher, because he was the pet character of the main writer. 

/it took years, and a better writer to make him likeable.

Seriously making me consider spending time on whatever message boards you'd suggest now...


Just tfwiki and tvtropes -- i only visit the tf forums when waiting for the previews for the next issues of the IDW Transformers comics.

I did watch the movie, fanboy.

One line. They "addressed" the contamination with one single line about moving fast to neutralize it. That's it.

I guess its too much to ask Hound to be more like Walter Sobchek and less James P. Sullivan right?
