I saw it. I feel I got my money's worth but so much of that 2.5 hours could have been cut out.

I didn't goto Transformers to see alternate history, Sam's awkward parents, or the NASA stuff.

Just get to the robots hitting each other already.

One thing me and my friend's discussed is Optimus Prime is a robotic badass who comes from a race of beings who I figure have seen technology and things far beyond human comprehension...so with that we agreed he was totally bullshitting when he was honored to meet Earth's first astronauts.

I remember seeing online that Bay had made the comment if their are raciest robots in this one you could he would give money. Well I saw a raciest robot. Ironhide made a comment about a Mexican standoff. To me that is a little raciest and the wreckers being Irish and at the shuttle I thought I heard them picking a fight.

Found where I read it.

Mexican standoff has been an action movie term for over two decades. It means when two or more people have their guns drawn on one another at close range. If anything I think the term was coined by early Chinese John Woo films.

Mexican standoff has got to be named after 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly'

I haven't seen it but I'm just wondering....this movie cost $200 million to make. Think of how much more it would cost, all the extra CGI, to have the Transformers actually accounting for the majority of the screen time.


It was too long anyway. The human stuff was poorly done and mostly unnecessary. Malkovich was hilarious though.

Isn't Chinese a choice under race in the last census? Or waas it korean or vietnamese?

Lol sure why not, mexican can be a race. We've been making them up :P.

A friend of mine wrote "Human" under 'other' in the census. I put down Indonesian. Didn't really care since I'm a foreign student here

Back on topic, i like the movie to be honest. Sure the story can be cheesy at times, but its pretty entertaining. Its one of those movies best watched in the theater, not on cable tv.

Ah, my bad. I Only knew it because it was always used to describe John Woo movies more then anything.

Someone wake me up when Hollywood makes a live action version of the 1986 TF movie without all the fuckin' product placement.
Spoiler
I'll probably rent this piece of shit when RedBox gets it for a $1 for a night, so at least I don't have to overpay to watch Michael Bay kill my childhood further.

Why watch it at all if you hate it so much?

Because even though the TF's in the movie are pretty reprehensible(design wise), there's still a guarantee of shit blowing up or otherwise being destroyed.

That's worth $1 to me, but the laughable 'plots' of the first two movies and the horrible character models(aside from Prime, who they didn't change too much imo thankfully) wanted to make me hurl.

I did not know this. Still think it was Bay being racist some how.

nah....

actually the theater I went to was not as obnoxious as the crowd I was stuck in for TF2.... In TF2 there was so many howls every time FOX appeared... Guess the 9pm crowd acts different than the midnight crowd.

It was my b-day and my best friend was going to treat me to a movie, it was either Cars 2 or Trannyformers. I knew my best friend would say no to Cars 2 soo... yeah.

I only saw part of Tranny 1 and never bothered with 2. First things first, Micheal Bay still blows and Beouf is still a douche.

I enjoyed it, but it was utterly forgettable. Can see why people would be big fans, but i thought it was pretty "meh."

Saw it today. It was great for what it was supposed to be, a mindless action flick with giant robots and a lot of intense action scenes. Don't really know what others were expecting? Michael Bay is the perfect director for these types of movies.

This is also my favorite of the Transformers movies.

Just saw it today in 3D.

GREAT graphics/CGI. Much better than TF2.
Main plot ok, all other smaller explanations of the movie was WTF at moments.
Felt like they tried to squeeze everyone back into the movie. Tyrese at the end. Main marine didn't have a big role, the main villain didn't feel "main" at all.


Notes:
Her ass was nice, other than that her face was eh.
Merc. SLS AMG was a beauty.
The building scene towards the end where shit was collapsing was pretty nice.

Alright. I picked this up from the Blockbuster 3/$15 5/$25 dealie last week and I gotta say I really liked it.:shock:

Although......I really wish they would subtitle these movies Josie & The Pussycats Parts 2, 3 & 4 from all of the fucking product placement throughout the movie.:bomb::roll:

I mean, I understand these are big budget movies and they need to come up with funding somehow some way, but I distinctly saw the brand logos for Gillette, Target, Chevy(of course) and Lenovo...just to name a few.

Although I will admit that towards the end of the movie I liked that they showed a shot of the Bannerman Castle(up near Newburgh, NY), though part of the facade they showed collapsed sometime early in this year.

Moreover, I was shocked to see that Frank Welker provided his voice for this movie....though NOT for Megatron.:cry:

Frank Welker cannot fully re-create G1 Megatron's voice anymore. He tries, but something has been lost. Same with Soundwave...the voice modulation effect or whatever that was used in G1 was probably copyrighted so they can't use it. Hugo Weaving was pretty good at playing Megatron in the films. Peter Cullen does a fine job giving us a more griddier OP..which is perfect for live action series.

I know I've heard of Frank Welker's issues with trying to re-create the G1 Megatron voice and there being some issues there. Shame really. Although Hugo Weaving has been decent as Megatron in the films.
