So I checked that out on google and she was very amused. I think she enjoyed the movie for that and the scenery - I don't thinks he really understands the story (I told her she is not alone in that.)


Yes, it's the butler from Downton. There are other cameos, too. The main woman's mother was the nurse robot from "Humans".

Anyway, the other joke concerning Cogman is that he's both a British Headmaster AND a TF Headmaster (both meanings). Anyone else get that Easter egg?

More like that was an artifact left over from an earlier version of the script where Cogman was likely supposed to have transformed into a head and taken control of the decapitated body of Nitro Zeus during the final battle scene with Cybertron at Stonehenge, but since that didn't make it into the final cut, the bit where Sir Edmund Burton calls Cogman a Headmaster makes little sense in the finalized version, as it referred to his being "a very rare breed" of Cybertronian. Nothing was said of him being an educator, but a lot was said of him being a butler, "for 700 years" no less.

Yes, that's what I said. He was meant to be a Headmaster. However, the Easter egg/in-joke was that his demeanor and nationality (thus use of vocabulary) pointed that he was also a British Headmaster-esque character, too.

I... think that's called stereotyping, dude. Not cool.

Not true. Cogman's behavior is synonymous with traditional British Headmasters:

Besides, even if that were not so, stereotyping him as a butler is just as "bad" in your book, surely?

Transformers: The Last Knight Coming Back to Theatres for Free as Part of Community Day in Canada

Postby william-james88 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 7:18 pm

Every year in Canada, Cineplex movie theatres organize a community day where movies are shown in the morning for free and snacks are offered at low rates. Any money made goes to charity. The movies are always of the year so this year we have Transformers: The Last Knight as one of them. That particular film starts at 9:30 and it is first come first served as there are no tickets. This event is taking place next Saturday, the 27th, and doors open at 9 am. You can click on the following link to see the other movies offered and which cinemas are participating in the event: https://www.cineplex.com/Promos/Communi ... rtnerships

I don't hate The Last Knight as much as a lot of other people do, but why choose that when the first movie, Dark of the Moon, and honestly even Age of Extinction would be better choices? Eh, maybe there would be some edits to change the black bar inconsistencies and putting in the "missing" scenes, but I'm probably a bit too optimistic for a more "complete" edit of TLK.
Action Figure Wishlist:

MPM-03 Bumblebee
Studio Series Dropkick
Studio Series Ironhide
Cyberverse Shockwave
POTP Optimal Optimus
MP-10 Optimus Prime (Takara colors but with a better head)
PRID Deluxe Ratchet
PRID Voyager Bulkhead
Arms Micron Breakdown
PRID Dreadwing

The fan film is on hold. I'm doing the logical thing and making the poor man's Robot Chicken with my TFs and other toys.

My G1 Starscream needs fists. He's the Collection reissue and can't have a coronation without fists!

As the article states, its not about having a free TF film, its about having a free recent film.

Actually a few reasons, The Last Knight, younger audience is more familiar with TLK, unlike other movies, the fifth one actually have some story, The First movie gets away with a lot only because of nostalgia and first impression, and Dark of the Moon is like the worst movie ever.

I thought I was one of the only ones to think the third film was terrible. It bored me.

The third film is an abhoration. It is also a snooze fest and the worst film in both Francis Mcdormand and John Malkovich's careers.

ALL of the sequels are lousy films.

To be honest, I can't sit through a single one of the Bay TF films. They are so boring.
