Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.
I saw the first trailer about 2 months ago, and really did think it was leftover footage from the Transformers films. I might still go see it, but it would have been much better if the movie didn't involve aliens

It would be kinda cool if one of the battle ships transforms into that cancelled ROTF Tidalwave CGI designs.

Indeed. I blame these guys:
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

Am I the only person who thinks this about the film Battleship? I don't know if this should be posted here due to the topic, but it seems to me like Hasbro is pretty desperate to recreate the success of the Transformers films with this one. The mechanical design, the plot, and the characters all seem like pretty shameless and lazy attempts to mimic Bay's style since they couldn't get him back for another movie right away.
Personally, I think Battleship looks frakin' stupid and shouldn't have been made. I won't be wasting my money on it.
This would probably be better of in General Discussion.
Anyway, in one of the trailers they even point out that this film is from the creators of Transformers. By that, they mean the producers. When I saw the first trailer, I immediately thought, "so this is what they did with the leftover TF footage." I hated it. Then I saw the 2nd trailer and hated it a bit less. And not because it's very similar to TF, but because I was looking forward to this movie being about Earth and humans fighting each other, not aliens. It's been a while since I've seen a movie with an awesome naval battle, and considering the title and nature of the game it's based on, this should have been the best ever.
I think that the whole "invading aliens" concept is getting worn out as it has saturated Hollywood in the last 6-7 years, probably beginning with the first TF movie. It was fine to have that, and even RoTF (as shitty as it was) and obviously DotM was a monster hit. But, they had Cowboys and Aliens (which was pretty good), Predators (also fun), Skyline (f**king LAME) and the upcoming Prometheus (not being a fan of the Alien franchise, I could not care less about it). There were a few others that I can't think of, but, personally, I've had enough of aliens for a while. Let's get back to kicking other humans' asses. For this reason, I'm very happy to see Stallone and Ahnuld making a comeback. 80s-90s action FTW.
