Now, Battleship getting sunk (Worse opening weekend than John Carter, ouch!) by The Avengers this past weekend? That might slow down plans for TF4/TF-Reboot. Maybe.


Considering that Battleship was only made so Universal could hold onto the license*, I doubt it. Paramount and Hasbro know they have a good thing going with the Transformers films. No amount of critical scorn can stop the series from succeeding. Battleship was just a throwaway effort by Universal and Hasbro got involved because it was their game.


Oh, don't get me wrong, I know TF is a license to print money, and there's no way they'll give it up, it's just that there's a ton of money (200+ million) tied up in Battleship, and not making that back (at least right away) has got to hurt Universal. Projects in the pipe might find their budgets cut as a result. Barb Wire crashing and burning pretty much took the MST3K movie with it, after all.


*Note: Studios have done this before. The horrendous Roger Corman Fantastic Four movie, for example, was made so the license to the characters could be held onto. Usually a license to make a film is lost if you don't make one after a certain amount of time. Universal probably considered making a film and getting at least some money out of it better than just dropping money on the license again if it stagnated. The Transformers film series and it's success probably contributed to the plan too.


Yeah, but Corman's F4 was made on a shoestring budget, and wasn't actually released.


It would be a rational fear, however Universal dropped the bomb that was Battleship. Paramount, a completely different producer, funnels money to Hasbro for Transformers. I doubt Paramount is worried about Universal's mistakes. After all we still got The Avengers after Spiderman 3, Daredevil, Electra, and a few other Marvel comic films flopped from different producers. Hell, even the Hulk (the good one) was a failure and we still got The Avengers.

As fans of the original G1, yes I would of liked for the transformers to of been more G1 in looks but oh well. I understand you couldnt of made them exactly G1 anyways or else they'd look corny as hell on the big screen. I wish the decepticons were actually decepticons and not wussies but what are you gonna do?

I hated the unicron trilogy. it was so kid i fied that it stunk, but you know what, its BETTER than no transformers at all.

Just like with the reboot of Star Trek, to score big at the box office you have to aim for new audiences... as the original fandom isnt going to reel in the profits these companies want.

Just be happy there is a 4th movie! One day the popularity might just give these studio's the confidence in a more G1 feel of a reboot. Just be thankful Transformers is this popular!!!!!!!!!!! By the way the movies were great! I much prefer WFC/FOC/Prime continuity but the movies were very entertaining.

Man I for one am bummed that Michael Bay is making TF4. I rewatched DOTM last night (after having not watched it for quite some time) and I must say it really isn't that great. I like many others have been blinded by some of the robot action (all 5 mins of it) and have excused the rest of it. After watching DOTM again I can say without a doubt that it is just awful. Why even include Shockwave? Why is Optimus a cold-blooded killer? Why is Megatron sitting in an alleyway watching the action? Too many whys and lapses in logic and just good story-telling altogether. I can only imagine what kind of crude humor and vulgarity Bay will infuse this time and in a kid's movie no less. I know some will say these movies were made for long time TF fans that are in their 20s-30s but let's face it, they are for kids. Just like all Transformers have ever been except maybe the MP line. The point is that after watching DOTM I realized why I don't like the first two films and now the third one as well. It's not just that they malinger on the humans etc. etc. TF Prime has proven that human characters work when they're A. not the center of attention ALL the time and B. when they're interesting. As far the action is concerned, it looks neat but I can't help but feel just how hollow it all is when watching it now. No action scene in the entire film carries any weight because we don't care about anyone and the Transformers were never allowed to grow as characters. Nothing ever pays off. And yes, after not watching it for a while and watching TF Prime and G1 in between I have come to realize just how heartless Optimus comes across at the end when he kills Sentinel Prime. Sentinel Prime even begins pleading for his life and Optimus executes him just like Barricade and Soundwave executed Que earlier on (odd parallel that is really unsettling). And this is coming from a guy who like others out there tried to justify his actions when we first saw the movie. Once he kills Sentinel I was done. I will not be rewatching it ever again. The sad part about all of this is with the amount of money these films make they will not be changing course anytime soon I fear. We will continue to get vulgar movies starring scantily clad models that just so happen to involve giant fighting robots from space until they stop making money. And even worse still is the fact parents are willfully and happily taking their young children to these films. It disgusts me to no end. If they want my money they're going to have to reboot...plain and simple. I just hope others won't gloss over the awful Bay films and give them a free pass because they feature a few Transformers for a few minutes. No thank you. I'll stick with WFC games and TF Prime for now.

For fan service. Because he's a badass. Because he can.

Common damn sense would have given you the ability to answer those questions.

It's not a question of common sense. If I or any of the rest of us had any we wouldn't have gone to see the 2nd film based on the idiocy of the 1st one. Don't know if you're trying to be funny or not but I took your comment aimed at me as condescending and uncalled for. Based on your comment I'm pretty sure you won't care what I have to say but if I offended I apologize. I will surely keep you in prayer and hope you learn how to talk like an adult.

Well, none of those where even really questions the movie had to answer. You could understand the entire movie without knowing the answer to those questions. As for Megatron sitting in the alley, in the book, Sentinel throws him off of the building. And apparently the editors cut a lot of scenes out of the movie. The twin's absence, when they can be seen in the back ground of one shot is evidence of this.

Well "common sence" might have been alittle harsh for sly to use, but in a seince alot of the questions you had were in fact answered in the movie. others are just from putting two and two toegther. For example,..

What was the purpose of Shockwave being in it?

To throw people off the sent of Sentiel Prime being the main vilian. But to be honest, it really wasn't Bay of the production company who did this, but people heard thatShockwave was going to be in it, and asumed that he was going to be the main vilian. I'll admit, his character was wasted as there was so much more potential for him, but with people doing everything they can to find out all the secrets of the movie before hand, i can't blame them for trying to use him to throw everyone off the main plot of the movie.

As far as Optimus behavior is concerned, you have the fandom to directly blame for this. They were the ones that bitched and complained about how weak he was in the first movie. Then he becomes the bad ass he should be and people still want to ****. Bay really has tried to aplease not only the fans, but everyone (he can't just focus on fan requests other wise the movie would be a total and complete failure.) BUt alas,...As long as Bay's name is attached to the TF franchise, your never going to make them (the fandom) happy. No matter what is done.

DinoJack:

As critical as I am of certain flaws in Bay's TF movies, I have to agree with what 5150 Cruiser said. OP was made more bad-ass because fans hated how he got his as handed to him by Megatron in TF1. It wasn't perfect, but it shows that Bay actually put in an effort to rectify things.

In the case of OP being weak, Spielberg actually has to shoulder some of the blame, if not all of it. He insisted that Sam be given the honors of killing Megatron, to make him the star of the show. That meant that OP had to get beaten up by Megs in order to be rescued.

As for OP shooting Sentinel in the head, it could have been remedied by simply adding a few lines like, "This is for Ironhide." To have his friend and mentor kill his long-time comrade in arms in cold blood would have driven OP into a massive sense of vengeance.

Yes, Bay should have made it clearer to the audience, but it does make sense that OP would be plenty pissed by his mentor's depraved actions.

Overall, DOTM suffered from some harsh editing, and could have benefited from a smoother flow of scenes and more explanations given. Still, IMO it's not half bad as far as action movies go.

Haha.. Thanks Man. I think what it really comes down to is having the ability to comprimise a little. If people would understand this then we all would be alot happier. :lol:

This time around i really hope they release the book after the the release of the movie in threaters. I don't know how many things were ruined because of spoilers from the book. This is how i found out about Sentenial prime betraying the autobots. Never did understand about wanting to know every detail about a movie before watching.

A little more thought in the writing could have alleviated some of the Sentinel Prime execution issue.

If they could have had something along the lines of Sentinel having a small change of heart in the final battle and putting himself between Prime and Megs at the last second to save Prime from a killing shot, thus taking the hit and falling, Prime could have continued to trash Megs. Then a scene would have followed where Prime cradles his fallen mentor while Sentinel THEN makes the apology speech as he dies in Prime's arm (singular), with Prime saying something noble, sad, and forgiving to send him on his way to the matrix. This, to me, would have made more sense and would have still accomplished all the intended goals, but in a much more faithful to the character manner.

I just don't see how that could've worked. The rage, the anger, the hatred that Sentinel felt...it doesn't just switch off at the drop of a hat. It would've been cliched and fallen flat with audiences and critics. I know why you like the scenario, and if the film had been handled differently, it could've worked, but the ending we have is the one that really works.

I don't know. I didn't really get a rage and hatred vibe from Sentinel. It seemed more of an obsessive willingness to do anything to save Cybertron kind of thing. Anything.

He definitely despised Megs, but seemed genuinely regretful to have to fight against Optimus.

That's just the impression I got, and why I thought that the alternate ending could have worked. Maybe I'm way off on that... :-?

He definitely despised Megs, but seemed genuinely regretful to have to fight against Optimus.

That's just the impression I got, and why I thought that the alternate ending could have worked. Maybe I'm way off on that... :-?

To me,it looked like Sentinel didn't care who he did have to fight to win.

He did spare Optimus, and then he warned him. He also let the Decepticons blow up their ship. Oh, and he ripped off his arm, lets not forget, oh, and he offed Ironhide, and the twins (well, he was supposed to)

Optimus sparing him at this point WOULD seem a bit odd, don't you think? I mean, cleaving Megatron seemed strange, only because of Megatron's position, they could have captured him, but Sentinel? I fear his death was inevitable.
