Apparently, fans aren't the only ones upset by the possible subtitle of Transformers 3.

Entertainment Weekly's pop culture blog, Pop Watch, has created a post lampooning the title. It should be noted that neither Paramount nor Hasbro have confirmed this is the actual subtitle.

I can't believe the "Powers that Be" sanctioned this subtitle. It sounds like a DTV sequel.

That was on one of Saturn's moons.


Indeed, you are correct.

Though, to be fair, it wasn't exactly clear in the film. You could tell that Megatron was headed toward Saturn, due to the rings, but it wasn't clear if it was the planet or one of it's moons.

I think the comics stated which moon, correct?


As a gas giant I wouldnt expect Saturn to have much of a urface to offer for a ship to be on, and if it did I would suspect that the "atmosphere" wouldnt have been so clear and free of gaseous drifts.

How about "The Chaos Bringer" or something similarly cool? I get the familiar impression that Bay is completely abandoning all TF historical precedent again. Apparently all the TF creators, collectors and fans are wrong about what is really a great way to do Transformers. Bay has a direct link to the Creation Matrix.


I really hate seeing fans use things like the TF history as a way of denouncing the films. The fans, the collectors, and the creators don't know the right way to make a TF film because there is no right way. It's all a matter of opinion. You may want a more stringent story following G1 frame by frame. Let's say I think that idea is the most terrible way to make a movie. Personally, were both right, but factually, neither of us are right in any sense. Bay is making the films the way he personally would, not the way others feel is "right".

And besides, what historical precedent on naming the film does he have to go on other than Transformers 3: The Movie? Until we know the context behind the name, claiming things like Chaos Bring or the Rise of Unicron would be better subtitles is premature. What if Unicron isn't even in the movie? Then those subtitles would be meaningless. Bay chose ROTF because it fit the theme. I suspect he's doing the same with this one.

I think we all shouldn't rush to judgment so quickly. Like I said, we know nothing about the film plot wise other than Shockwave is the main villain. I think we can wait a few months for the details to start trickling out before we declare that Transformers is ruined forever. Again.

Okay, here is the REAL issue with the subtitle:

"Dark of The Moon" hints at the cerebral, the ethereal and mystical nature of the permanent darkness of half of our moon. The many plays, songs and poems written on the subject or titled so convey the sense of the mysterious, with complex overtones of spirituality, darkness of the human spirit and our evolved fear of the night. Subjects that are all very intense, deep and emotionally driven.

With that in mind, let us examine the tenor of our two previous Bay Transformers films (hereafter referred to as "TF Films are..")and play "True or False" with some of the adjectives used above.

TF films are cerebral. FALSE
TF films are mystical. FALSE
TF films are mysterious. TRUE (As in: it is mysterious how this dialogue was written. OR It is mysterious how this juvenile, vulgar and racist language is coming out of a robot's mouth)
TF films are complex. FALSE
TF films are intense. FALSE
TF films are deep. TRUE (As in: The cow feces is very deep in here)
TF films explore and espouse the complexities and darkness of the human spirit. OMG FALSE

This subtitle just doesn't work. Not because of most people's immediate association with a Pink Floyd song. Not because of most people's ignorance of the celestial lexicon. It is a fail because it is a thinly veiled attempt to add significance and weight to a film that has a predestination to platitude and low brow humor.

There isn't anything wrong with the films...just don't try to make TF:3 be something it's not (and something no one is expecting it to be).
