[quote="noctorro"]The trailers didn't show Anthony Hopkins mumbling, they didn't show Hot Rod do his stupid talking thing.[\quote]This. All this. Let's see how I feel during the second watch through.

I didn't mind the Megan Fox stand in. :POPCORN:

I went into AoE with actually quite high expectations, and maybe it was watching it in IMAX, maybe it was the jetlag doing its thing (having just gotten back from an overseas trip) but I enjoyed the hell outta that movie. I don't think I've actually watched it again since then, but the first time through I really liked it, and I still have it ranked equal-second alongside DotM in my personal list.

Meanwhile, I watched TLK a few days after release so I'd already heard a couple bad things about it, and nothing good. I wanted to be impartial so I was hoping I'd still like it (after all, most people hated AoE while I thought it was a step toward what I wanted from a Transformers movie), but even so my expectations couldn't have possibly been any lower. And yet.

And yet.

I came out of TLK let down, and for the first fifteen minutes afterward I just felt lethargic but after that I was angry. I've never come out of a movie angry before or since, so I guess TLK has that dubious honor. It's interesting to hear other people with the opposite opinions, and I'm glad you guys liked it! I guess for me, it just did something really wrong - something I still can't quite pin down honestly, but whatever it was I sure hope future Transformers movies avoid it, for my sake and theirs.

Somethin' I noticed watching the flick tonight... When Hopkins says he's the LAST of the Witwiccans, and there's a picture of Sam... could that mean Sam got killed offscreen? Cause that would be totally hilarious if Megs decided to hunt him down and off him inbetween films. :lol:

I thought I'd treat myself post-a number of deadlines to a junk evening of food and bad movies.

So I tried watching TLK.

Pretty much sums my experience. I can't even comment on what I thought of the script because of how bad the editing and cutting was - there was no pacing to speak of whatsoever, everything just kept stumbling into the next scene. Frustration is the least bad of the feelings it elicited.

Not just Sam, but his parents too!! And they were hilarious!! I had a similar thought last night while watching. I also didn't get to pause on screen when his picture shows up.

I had been anticipating a huge let down - I just got hte DVD today, and WISH I had time to see it on the big screen. It was a lot of fun. My only critism is Optimus prime having to state: "I am Optimus Prime" it's verging on "I am Groot"

Still my husband and I enjoyed it, we watched it start to end, we could follow the story well. It might have been a little disjointed here and there, but all in all, much better than the 4th (we couldn't stay awake for that one) 1, 3 and 5 are good, 2 and 4 were meh... My co-workers also enjoyed it, I was talking to one the other day and he asked if I had seen it and he said it was great. To be honest, at this point, I'll take the reviews of a non tf fan over one of us anyway because: they aren't as jaded to one generation over another.

So great night, great cider, ghost pepper chips and a new Starscream + movie, best tuesday in a long time!

One of the store exclusive versions of the 5th Movie for Australia has been revealed - at JB Hifi for $70.

It is noted as being a VR Edition (with 2 VR goggles), which might mean that it includes as bonus extras, the various clips that Bay shot with the 360 degree camera, that we saw posted online during the leadup to the release of the movie.
It is not expected to be the actual movie in 360 VR.

Format ‐ 4k Ultra HD/ Blu-Ray/ Ultraviolet

Gonna gotta myself to leave here my mini review of the film:
TulioDude wrote:Took some time to write my feelings on this movie(not on chronological order):

-Hot Rod was great!He so exemplary in his scenes,because every time he shows up we get to see a little more of his personallity.I didnt mind he that he as different from G1 self,the "chosen one" angle he had in the past wasnt necessary.

-Sqweeks was cute,but felt like belonged on the initial drafts of the script,because they way the interacts with the rest of the cast.

-The way the one of the kids flirts with Isabella was weird,and Viviane staring at the shirtless Cade was silly,but its was quick,and didnt ruin the movie for me.

-The people that say this movie has no plot have no idea what the're talking.I would argue this movie has too much plot!I would liked to have seen some more focus on some parts,but it was still fun.

-One of the things they need in the future is imporve their marketing,because some of things they teased didnt come to fruition.Like one of the offical synopses had the "rethink your heroes" hinting while Optimus became evil,Megatron would the good guy.While he did work wiht the humans he hadnt a change of heart yet.Kind like some the marketing for Age of Extinction implied the Dinobots would be the main focus.

-The action was great!I like all the different angles they chose take the camera shot.

Nexus Knight wrote:So, finally finally saw the Last Knight. And... I have to say, it was actually kinda awesome. Based on the reviews and the box office performance, I thought this would be worse than RotF (which I sorta liked, but wouldn't watch unless rewatching the entire series all together). But... no. My father and I are in the agreement in the fact that it was the best of the series. I'm actually in some puzzlement of why it has been so panned.


Finally, a theory I had after watching the last scene. If Quintessa is supposed to be an evil minded character, why is she so gungho about killing the Chaos Bringer? Is there any reason to believe that this Unicron is evil? It's just a theory that's admittedly not too real thought out, but it would be interesting idea, anyways.

I was thinking about it recently,and still wonder,why she wanna destroy Unicron in the first place?Unicron horns wouldn't even appear if she hadn't flinged Cybertron against Earth.Unicron didnt do anyhting wrong yet.

-The Transformers robot characters screen time has been increasing by each film and I was so happy to see Transformers: The Last Knight continue this trend.We got the see them hang out more outside of battle,more individual dialogue for each,interactions with each other and they all were distinctive from one another.I would love to see this keep happening going foward with this series.

-Cogman is the best.

Overall this is a solid 3 out 5 stars.This movie is fun.I can see the flaws that it has,and I do agree they need to change up the format if the want to be part of this big movie series,but it had also many great things going for it.


I also love some of the quiet moments with humans and the Transformers like this one ;;

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
After this summer's farings for Transformers: The Last Knight, numbers have also been compiled for its home release on DVD and BluRay, along with digital streaming and rental - now that at least North American and Australian markets have received the movie.

According to Variety, the latest Paramount live-action movie debuted at number one over previously released Wonder Woman as far as physical discs are concerned, but number two in terms of digital release and rental. You can check out the whole article here, and the relevant parts below!

“Transformers: The Last Knight,” from Paramount Home Media Distribution, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 30.

But Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, although bumped down to the No. 2 spot, remained in high demand, selling 87% as many units as the latest “Transformers” film in its second week of release.

[..]

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Oct. 1, “Wonder Woman” shot to No. 1 now that its brief week-long holdback from Redbox is over.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” debuted at No. 2, while “47 Meters Down” bowed at No. 3. (Both Paramount and Lionsgate release their films to Redbox on the same day they become available for sale.)

I wanted to get the combiner wars footage but I dont do blue-ray. Its just a scam to revive dying disc sales in a world of netflix and other means to watch (or get hold of) a digital copy. Ill just grab Combiner Wars from one of those outlets. I just bought the good ol DVD for now.

On the movie itself, I feel it follows along the same lines as the first 4 movies. The only real difference from the earlier movies is you get more robot footage which is a good thing. I understand there will always be what I like to call the "rotten tomatoes" crowd who let paid movie reviewers make up their minds for them. Those are usually the people who claim to know what "acting" is or isnt based on personal opinions. I tend to focus more on action sequences and CGI graphics rather than what the human actors do or say in the movie. Ive tried to watch movies hailed for "good acting" or "great screen writing" and I usually fall asleep. Everybody hated the 2nd trilogy of star wars films but I loved them more than the original trilogy. Gone were stupid jim henson puppets replaced by awesome CGI renditions of alien characters. Gone were those lame, over-rated "Luke I am your father" moments replaced by cool action sequences that dont resemble a soap opera. Im not saying the Transformers franchise will ever top Star Wars but in franchise longevity it comes very close.

I'm getting tbe blu ray but have zero interest in the combiner wars thing (I was barely even interested in that toy line). I just want those lovely complex movie bots in HD (but not ultra HD cos it'll be a while before I get a 4KTV despite owning a PS4 Pro). The TF movies are my absolute fave excuse for high definition. :D
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

I wanted to get the combiner wars footage but I dont do blue-ray. Its just a scam to revive dying disc sales in a world of netflix and other means to watch (or get hold of) a digital copy. Ill just grab Combiner Wars from one of those outlets. I just bought the good ol DVD for now.

On the movie itself, I feel it follows along the same lines as the first 4 movies. The only real difference from the earlier movies is you get more robot footage which is a good thing. I understand there will always be what I like to call the "rotten tomatoes" crowd who let paid movie reviewers make up their minds for them. Those are usually the people who claim to know what "acting" is or isnt based on personal opinions. I tend to focus more on action sequences and CGI graphics rather than what the human actors do or say in the movie. Ive tried to watch movies hailed for "good acting" or "great screen writing" and I usually fall asleep. Everybody hated the 2nd trilogy of star wars films but I loved them more than the original trilogy. Gone were stupid jim henson puppets replaced by awesome CGI renditions of alien characters. Gone were those lame, over-rated "Luke I am your father" moments replaced by cool action sequences that dont resemble a soap opera. Im not saying the Transformers franchise will ever top Star Wars but in franchise longevity it comes very close.



can't tell if serious... :-?


I'm hoping for not serious.

The one thing about this movie that actually makes me angry was the Bee/Nemesis fight. The whole thing was in the previews! I was so looking forward to it and it's sad to me that it was entirely spoiled and actually came off better in the trailers.

Other than that, I feel fairly neutral on it.

That's something you kinda have to blame on advertising -- and it's unfortunately pretty common these days.
