Seriously though, how awesome would it be to have him show up out of nowhere in this movie in a new body? I can picture him being like a silver Kia Soul with red and blue diagonal stripes going across the hood


I'm all for having Jazz come back ... but why a Kia Soul?

That would be awful.

I'm all for Jazz showing up in prequels and flashbacks but he is dead and bringing characters back from the dead is absolutely cheap and is awful story telling unless it's done to bring the plot forward and even then it has to be done right if Jazz was going to come back to life it would of happened by now and bringing him back wouldn't make the plot that different unless Jazz turns out to be the chosen one or something.

The only ones that have come back from death were Optimus since he is Optimus and you can never kill space Jesus which cheapens his many deaths in the first place, Megatron because he is the main Decepticon and Sam because of plot reasons which was cheap but made sense in the story.

Point is when characters die in a "war" movie they should stay dead since you don't see people coming back to life in reality and it would make the death scenes pointless and make the audience care less.

Just saying... but it is the Transformers movies. You're right in saying that bringing a character back from the dead is generally bad storytelling, but it certainly wouldn't be the worst problem these movies have from a storytelling standpoint. Not by a longshot.
I'd kind of be for it just because he's a far more likeable character than the 5 Autobots in AOE
Heck, you could still possibly do something with it. For instance, the death count of the Autobots in the Bayverse is so extremely high; if Jazz came back to life hinting that there would be a way to resurrect the rest of the Autobots, that would be a somewhat interesting drive to a movie and set everyone up for a fall and a decent moral. It's usually cheap and a cop-out, sure, but there's good ways to use the concept.

Funnily enough, Movie Jazz has actually been brought back to life before in the comics due to having a new toy at the time.

Going on Jazz talk for a second, it was hinted at that Megatron was holding Starscreams head yes, and then Barricade is back in the movie despite the fact it really really looked like he died.

So what if Megatron, whom as seen has the red on his helmet like Optimus indicating to me he might also be under the creators control at some point, chooses Decepticons to come back to life and the Creators are capable of bringing them back?

Hell, what if the creators take the Cybertronian bodies on Earth and rebuild them as their loyal troops, maybe even in entirely new looks. The dead bodies would only function as raw materials.

and in Age of Extinction, it was shown that Ratchet's spark was simply ripped out but still intact, and a deal made about how the spark is the lifeforce and is pretty much their soul, so who says the same thing can't apply here?

Seems like a pretty cool idea. Though I have a love-hate relationship on Starscream's look in the movie, I really think that if they were to make a solo movie, it should be on Starscream. His character had so much potential to be developed ... all to be killed by Sam of all people.

Starscream's death to Sam is pretty appropriate since he seemed to "specifically" had some sort of hate for him and contently antagonized him in ROTF and DOTM which led Starscream to "play" with his prey which led to his death.

It works for Starscream much more then some random Autobot blowing him up would even if it would be much cooler.

Plus it makes Que have contribution to the battle despite being a non combatant which makes his death not pointless in the overall story.

Ever had a doubt that director Michael Bay is a genius? New live action movie Transformers: The Last Knight cast member Anthony Hopkins thinks so! In a recent interview with Yahoo News, the actor behind Sir Edmund Burton - a historian of sorts in the movie - compares Bay to Oliver Stone and Steven Spielberg, talks about him chatting about getting the right look and design for Cybertronians, and praises the brilliance of 'savants' like the explosive director.

Watch the interview embedded below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

“I thought, ‘This guy’s a genius, he really is,‘” Hopkins told Yahoo Movies (watch above) last week at CinemaCon about his impression of Bay after meeting the director over breakfast to discuss the project. “He’s the same ilk as Oliver Stone and [Steven] Spielberg and [Martin] Scorsese. Brilliance. Savants, really, they are. He’s a savant.”

In Last Knight, Hopkins, 79, stars opposite the returning Mark Wahlberg as Sir Edmund Burton, an astronomer and historian who lives with Autobots on a sprawling British countryside estate.

Bay isn't a genius.

His last 3 non-Transformer films have all flopped!

People just happen to love giant Transformering Robots more than they hate Bay. But due to Paramount's current downward spiral financially that may change as soon as this Summer.

I look forward in seeing Anthony Hopkins in Thor 3 (Ragnarok) but that's where it stops this year.

No they haven't. They've all ranked in the millions and billions and then some. Even if they weren't good movies, that's not flopping.

Dude I know you got this weird obsession and hate boner with these movies and Bay that makes you so compelled to take a dump on us and other people who like these movies like we are wrong or something and such but when you have to make up false facts to try to stir the bee hive here it kinda starts to get ridiculous.

Just because one money made less then the last one doesn't mean it's a flop if it was we would absolutely not be at movie 5 and people like Hopkins and Peter Cullen himself would not praise Bay since there are people who also have hated on him such as Hugo who is kind of a sour person.

Maybe you should take a break or actually try to be thoughtful in your posts because maybe more people would like you and I don't mean that as an insult I mean that as genuine advice.

Anyways there are people who do like Bay he is a cool guy and he is an animal person as well as he donates to charities.

Edit: I just misread your post I thought you said that his last three transformers movies flopped I did not realize that you meant NON transformer movies.

It's called opinions some people actually do not hate Bay.

He does make visually stunning movies though even if you don't like explosions there are other visuals that are great and I'm not talking about CGI since Bay is very good with practical effects.

I respect him as a director. Are the movies great? Uh... aheh... by no means. But, tbf, that is partially the writers' faults. And I'm not big on Bay's pandering via "cheesecake". But he puts his heart into his work and he doesn't seem (afaik) like an asshole. His movies, while lacking in story (hopefully not for long...) and characters, are pretty and fun to watch. If you disagree, that's your opinion and I respect you for that. Just plz respectful to those that don't have the same views?

Are the movies great? Well no their not the best thing since sliced bread that I know but they are entertaining which is the most important part of a movie to me and I guess a lot of people too because why would some people enjoy watching bad cheap movies otherwise?

I don't think I or my family have as much fun in the theater as we do with Transformers actually I brought them with me to go to the Imax fan event last week and they enjoyed what they saw it helps that my Mum is a big fan of knights too.

Luckily we are starting to get less of some of the worse bits of the movies like the cheesecake stuff.


I respect opinions most of the time but when people are like

Is this an opinion or a jab at people who like Bay?

Whether he's a genius or not is subjective. I mean I think some of you are total ****, (and I'm sure the feeling is mutual, probably more so after you read the rest of this post) but that doesn't make it fact.

What we have in this instance is a veteran actor, a man who has worked in the movie industry for decades with various Directors sharing his opinion on Bay and his directing style.

Now for those who want to tear down Bay, tell me something. What makes you an expert?

Have YOU worked for multiple directors? Have YOU seen Bay at work? Have YOU come up with new ways to shoot? Have YOU helped develop new digital cameras to create visuals that haven't been done before?

No?

Because Bay has.

And that's why Hopkins has said what he said. He's worked with Bay and what he does to achieve the end result.

So you don't like the movies? Well good on you. Just because YOU don't like them doesn't mean they're bad. And blaming Bay? You are aware that there's more than one person involved in making these movies yeah?

Honestly, it's time some of you got the fuck over this Bay hating thing. It's pathetic.

The people who have hated him for these 10 years now for not catering to them are not going to change sadly because most people stick with their opinions whether good or bad.

I see people arguing with those such as Young Prime on the other Transformers fan websites and they just keep on going because of their point of views things is ts alright not to like someone's work and depending on why the person themselves but it will never be alright to start hating and tearing apart someone's different opinion because of it.

Unless it's something actually morally wrong like someone thinks murdering puppies is a good thing then you can question thier opinions. and their sanity too.

Correction....

"Pain and gain" may have ranged somewhere between breaking even and turning a small profit (courtesy of The Rock). The other 2 most recent Non-TF films directed by Bay within the last 12 years (13 Hours and The Island) have both Flopped...DO THE MATH! That track record is not the making of a "genius Director". Even as a producer that last Turtle sequel under-performed.

Again...No issue with Anthony Hopkins, loved is most of his previous work. Bay's crap is where it stops.

What else is playing that weekend...?

13 Hours actually turned a profit, so not sure (Budget $50,000,000 (estimate), Gross Takings US alone - $52,853,219 + Worldwide - $69,411,370). So maybe YOU do the maths.

-edit-

Now I do have the giggles.

Pain & Gain
Budget - $26,000,000 (estimated)
Gross - $49,874,933 (USA) + $86,175,291 (worldwide)
Opening weekend - $20,244,505 (USA)

So not only did Pain & Gain make a "small" profit, it nearly made its money back on the opening weekend. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
As for The Island, every director has a bomb. Clearly he's bounced back from it though.

So keep stretching there to justify your hate for Bay. It gives me giggles.

Look, dude... I know the movies are bad, but you don't have to try and prove they were unsuccessful. The two don't always go hand in hand.
