The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas! Bumble-bee plays at the end of your days deep in the heart of Texas! This Thursday night the Texarkana Parks Department is putting on a free showing of Bumblebee! If for any reason you’re in the area and haven’t seen this movie yet, if you’re a fan of Transformers even peripherally this is well worth your time. Per the statement from Kicker102.5:
“The Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreations Department fires up "Movies in the Park" this Thursday night with the first feature, "Bumblebee".
For the next several weeks, The Parks and Rec people will be providing these movies Thursday nights at Spring Lake Park, the movies will start between 7-8PM and are shown in the field across the street from the old airplane. The movies are free of charge and the Texarkana Parks Department wants to promote a very family-friendly atmosphere so no alcohol or smoking is allowed”
The article states food and drinks are allowed and suggests you bring chairs and/or blankets. Gather up the kids and have an awesome night enjoying this gem of a tribute to the franchise we love and the era that birthed it.

Yeah, I said it.


Absolutely. The real stars of this film were the better focus on quality writing, and the far more family friendly outlook overall. No stupid crude humor or out of place panty shots. Closer focus on a smaller number of characters who get some actual development. The fights you could actually follow instead of getting a blurry whirlwind mess.



The new designs were just a happy bonus.


Exactly.

Yay! Now they're going to see it like no Transformers movie can be successful without Bumblebee. They have been force feeding us Bumblebee for the past 12 years & now we can look forward to another 12 years of having Bumblebee rammed down our throats.

Oh joy! The Mary Sue/Gary Stu of the Transformers franchise. When standing next to Bumblebee, Decepticons become mindless idiots that just stand there & barely fight back. Really looking forward to more of that BS. Why have other Autobots at all when Bumblebee can easily destroy every Decepticon all by himself??? The war between Autobots & Decepticons raged on for millennia? I doubt it. Bumblebee could have ended the war on the first day. Even if something manages to destroy Bumblebee, he'll just magically pull himself back together with no explanation whatsoever as seen in The Last Knight. :roll:

He’s a troll who hops here and tfw2005 and complains about everything and starts fights for no reason and then leaves. Just block him like most the communities have.

My thoughts exactly.

The movie could have been just as good without the Cybertron scene entirely. However, that scene served as one delicious appetizer before the very fulfilling meal.

I wonder how positive he'll be when that live-action Sonic movie is out?

Well, maybe since they've been listening to fans, still happy?

I'm pretty sure they did that horrible design on purpose. That creepy Sonic was made ONLY for the trailer. So, they actually won't fix anything because there's nothing to fix to begin with. The real Sonic is already in the movie since the beginning.

I’ll be honest I had some of that troll hate in my heart I shared some of those same criticisms maybe not as colorfully but I’ll be honest, the franchise left me to the point where I waited for BB to come out on DVD. And I regret it like crazy now. Bumblebee fixed everything for me it healed some disappointments I’d had and I’d gladly take a Bumblebee series of movies if it meant this level of quality from here on out.

According to a new article from Comicbook.com some customers who received their Transformers Bumblebee 4K Ultra HD DVD's have been reporting audio sync issues where the sound is not matching the picture. Paramount has received enough complaints to issue a formal statement which follows:

"In response to Bumblebee UHD’s picture and audio sync issues being observed on some playback platforms, we have determined we can tighten their alignment to remedy the audio sync lag issue. Audio sync lag was observed primarily with the English ATMOS track, but we are addressing all the audio tracks on the disc regardless. The majority of consumers may never notice the sync issue, but unfortunately, the audio sync lag is exacerbated by viewing the film via the “ARC” (Audio Return Channel) port on TVs that output to a sound-bar or receiver. Compliance amongst TV manufacturer ARC implementation is not standardized, thus different set-ups will exhibit different and varying playback behavior, even if played back on the same set-up multiple times. A replacement disc is already ready that will align the picture and audio sync better, but do note, it still may not remedy all the ARC playback set-ups in the market – we suggest consulting your manufacturer’s documentation on how to align picture and audio sync if still experiencing lag."

The article further states that faulty DVD's are encouraged to include their shipping information and mail their defective UHD discs to the below address to receive the replacement disc free of charge.

Good thing I bought the movie on Blu-ray. I have no reason yet to buy a UHD player or a collection of UHDs to support it.
