I don't have to understand the context of a title to think it sounds bad, man. Cowboy Ninja Viking looks like a cool comic, but it's title is just... ridiculous and unimaginative. That's the way of things. Words have power, and disliking a choice of words for a title doesn't require a ton of context.

Sorry, but that sounds a little to "deep" for what it is. I guess "Transformers: the last movie that I get to do so I am going to do a bunch of crazy crap that will intentionally piss off the G1 fanboys while blowing up a whole bunch of shit with my favorite Victoria Secret model adding the T and A!" was too long.


Fixed. Stupid title btw.

...?

Anyway, until I see Hasbro put their stamp on it or see the words in an official trailer, I won't take it as the title of TF3.

"Dark of the Moon" is not bad, it could definitely have been worse. But it could have been so much better. Even a few of the episode titles from G1. "Transformers 3: Heavy Metal War" would have sounded f**king awesome, for example. Maybe a bit too long, but it would definitely have fit. Especially if Bay owns up to what he's been spouting, which is going all out in his final installment.

At the same time, it could have been worse. However, given that the movie revolves around the space race between America and the Soviet Union, and there are a lot of space stuff (like the shuttle and space-TFs like Shockwave and such) I think this title is probably true, and will reflect in the context of the story.

...and I just realized I have "Bad Moon Rising" by CCR playing on my playlist...

I am guessing Sam and Carly are going to be get sent to the Moon with Astrotrain and the Autobots have to rescue them.

Im actually not a big fan of sub titles in any movie. I'd be satisfied with just Transformers 3 or TF3

I think "Dark Moon" would sound less confusing. "The Dark of the Moon" just sounds too abstract compared to the other Movie titles but maybe it has some other significance. :-? Maybe the Space shuttle is actually Sky Lynx or Omega Supreme. Hey it could have been called "Transformerssss in Spaceeeeee" :lol:

Hopefully, TF3 will sync with Dark Side of the Moon batter than the Wizard of Oz did.

... Unexpected. We'll see what the movie itself is like, even if this is indeed the final title.

if your some what of a thinker like me delving into the name there is alot of reasons it might be named as such for example the dark of the moon could mean there is something on the moon eg decepticon space craft/ armies or could reference one of cybertrons moons arriving at earth or following armada as the moon being unicron or just for the lulz a tf twiligt crossover where the twilight cast get crushed by megs riped apart by ravage and blasted apart by ironhide because he hates them too all within 5 minutes of it starting

My thought is that, considering that Shockwave is the apparent main villain, he could establish an outpost on the moon, and launches his operations from there. Or, as was the case in RoTF, there was some left behind Cybertronian artifacts/objects of importance etc. left there that will be major to the plot of the film. We'll see...

It's a little cheesy, but it definitely could be worse. We still don't know if it's certain anyway.

The same registrant also for the following domains:-

So will it be the official TF3 title? :D

I knew that TF 3 was going to have a gay sub-title name for the film but The Dark of The Moon that sounds like a luvey-dubbby romance crap movie.

I would have named it The Darkside of the Moon or Dark Horizons.

I told you that the sub-titled would be based of the film such as TF 3 is about the space race so it was natural it was to have moon or space in the sub title but still it is a gay name and I dont like it.

I guess I can give up on my quest of giving TF 3 a proper sub-title name. I also told you they done had it name so their was little point of my crusade of naming in TF 3.

I really dont care about the subtitle I will just call it TF 3 I just want a good solid film and a somewhat conclusion to the trilogy.

If they can pull that off I can get over the fact of TF 3's gay sub-title name.

But it does sound like a romance name more than action.

it might just be the subtitle for that book series since there are 3 of them.

I agree. I don't mind the title. I'm going to reserve judgement until I hear about the actual plot and hear what critics have to say

Let me give a guess on the plot...

The moon is in fact Unicron, who has slept in orbit around earth for milliena, and now he awakens and wants to destroy earth.

Though, how do you defeat the moon? If he goes (or even if he doesn`t), what will happen to the Earths eco systems? When will Silverbolt be revealed? And most important - when will we see Megan Fox?

Are you kidding? Dark side of the Moon syncs near perfectly with Wizard of Oz, up until about 1/2 way through the film. You just have to know when to start it. I can't remember which Lion's roar you have to start it with.

He didn't alert them ... they just copied and pasted our news word-for-word.
