I always thought that the green screens were screens that the Cemetery Wind guys just hadn't activated yet.

I don't even notice product placement anymore. Hadn't thought about it one time watching this movie, with the exception of the beats pill since that was so blatant. Then this clip points out just how much there was in AOE. Not sure what to think of that :-?

The budget for the movie has to come from somewhere.

Why the hell is this on the first page?


This is not news worthy and you do know that this is going to start **** storms in the comment section?




And "honestly" i find this trailer offensive to what i like and most of the things that this "trailer" states is not even true or exaggerated.



In other words this is not funny at all.

Why do people have a problem with this again?


The movies are set in the real world so you should expect it.





Especially since the Transformers themselves are product placement (and always were and and always will be)

Why would it cause a problem? This is satire, not a serious review. As to it being newsworthy? That's up to the staff to decide.

Also you find this offensive? Good god what do you think of films like spaceballs, blazing saddles etc.

I don't watch movies except for the transformers films and guardians of the galaxy.


every other thing i watch is either a tv show (walking dead for example) or anime (just the action ones and the good drama ones as well).

Yeah but its not right for a professional news site to put up a not official video


just because someone from here worked on it.


This was one their least funny ones. Chinese voice in particular was obnoxious, and after all those same old Bay bashing, I expected some actual funny cast names, but nope.

It's been newsed so deal with it. No one forced you to click into the article, no one forced you to watch the video, and no one forced you to comment which ...

So here's the deal, back down. If you don't think something should be newsed, join the news crew and have a say instead of flooding the article with your negativity.

You can't prove opinions Sly, this is the last time I'm telling you this. Learn to respect the opinions of others (even if they come across as wankers who are discussing their illegal downloads which is against the site rules) ESPECIALLY if they don't like the movies.

I'm not asking him to prove his opinion. I'm asking him to prove his claims. It's one thing not to like a movie. It's another to claim that you wasted brain cells while watching it. If it's a fact that it was one of the worst movies he's ever seen, I want to know why.

This is kinda how i feel as well even if i make posts that make me look like i only want to see my opinion.

That's not the case i don't mind or care if someone does not like what i like but i have a problem with people going on and on or people rubbing it in and making outrageous claims.

Sorry, perhaps I should have added, further discussion is not welcome on the matter. It was newsed, don't like it? Get over it. Still have an issue with it? PM it to me so we can stop cluttering this thread.

He didn't make any claims, he stated his opinion, for which he's entitled to.

He is under NO OBLIGATION to justify his opinion to you. Stop provoking people and just accept the fact that people did not like the Transformer movies.

I, and many others, are tired of you constantly jumping on people who dare speak badly of the movies. Get over it and accept it. Don't make me discuss this with you again.

Alright i do apologize on my part but i will say that i don't mind that people don't like the movies but i just hate it when they decide to just make **** posts that are outrageous.


By the way telling someone to get over it is rather something (can't think of a word)


I shall stop posting about the matter.

uh, the story was pathetic, dinobots were in it for 20 secs, the acting was some of the worst ive every seen, and i like markey mark. The new designs sucked. The humor was toilet humor. Wtf was that supposed to be galvatron? he didnt anything in the movie!
basically the writers of these movies should be shot, and bay needs to be run over by a G1 mack truck version of prime. and if u tell me those arent reasons, u know nothing about film.

U liked the movie fine, but u know what, i bet u when a real director and writer does TF u will look back at these bay movies and laugh at how bad they were.
I bet u really loved ROTF hahaha. :BOT: :CON:

This movie was the first and only one of these four films to be virtually devoid of toilet humor. Heh, even the movie's main character was an advocate of decency.

Galvatron did do something. He started an entire Decepticon uprising. For the past 5 years, there had been no true Decepticon order. Just a bunch of refugees running around Earth, being hunted by Cemetery Wind. Now, the Decepticons are back to at least some semblance of power. And the humor wasn't toilet humor. I can't think of a single joke that was.

And yes, I do like ROTF. So, using that as an "insult," doesn't bother me at all. I'm trying my best to be calm about this.

Try not responding. Or do I need to impose a time out until you learn to stop harrassing those whose opinion differs from yours?

Seriously, lets follow Megatron Wolf's lead and talk about the video instead of the same go-around argument.

after watching it tonight, i think that is the case. we see something like 5 or 6 green screens at first and then they launch a few of those probe/firefly thingies and then theres only 3 screens or so that are green still.

Oh for the love of... =;

This trailer is for the 3,194,445 subscribers to Screen Junkies who want to see movies humiliated. Not for Transformer fans (though the epic voice is one of our own ;) ).

And anything is news worthy, IF, and only if, the news mods decree it to be so. Which, in this case, they hit a big score in my book. Thanks Va'al! :D

Oh and:

1. I would never had watched it in the first place if it was not posted here and i thought this was going to be funny as i like their other Honest trailers but nope just pathetic Bay bashing and not even talking about the robots.





2. The difference is that this trailer came out after the movie was on dvd/bluray so don't pull that card out.

Since when did any of them said they wanted to kill humans?


Never besides Optimus saying that he would kill the person who killed his Autobots and melted them down so perfectly justifiable would you not want to kill the person who killed your friends/family at some point?


And the Transformers still look like Transformers Crosshairs mostly just because they have less kibble (which i thought fans complained about).

1. This is not a fact that's your opinion.

2. I think you need to relearn what seconds are they were in the movie for at least a decent time they just weren't explained that well.

3. Aside from the Boyfriend and Daughter's acting the acting in this movie was great mostly in Tucci, Marky Mark and Kelsey Grammar's performances even if you don't like the acting does not mean it was bad.

4. Once again that's your opinion i personally like how they look more human now that's good for the audience and i really loved Crosshair's trench coat.

5. Galvatron in purple looks rather silly in real life does it not? But i agree that his design is bad besides the hole in his chest and he was not meant to do anything in this movie because he is a setup villain for number 5.



So try to use facts next time when your trying to proof someone wrong.

I forgot about those lines but Hound is justified at least


Brains became an arse hole from being tortured by Humans but besides that i think that the Autobot's threat were minimal especially since Hound only threatened Joyce a few time because he was the head of KSI and was one of two heads in their comrades murders and melted for parts to make their own robots that later went hay wire.

I, for one, am not a fan of how the Autobots acted in this film. I understand they're in a bad situation, but I don't like the heroes acting so trigger happy and eager to kill humans. I also don't like Optimus putting a sword to Grimlock's throat and saying "Defend my family or die!"

The Dinobots have always been like that, though. You have to best them and hold them at gunpoint to get them to do anything. Optimus was tired, pissed off, and ready to end it. What else was he supposed to do?

I do agree with the first part i think only Crosshairs should of been like that i wished that Hound was just jolly and only trigger happy to Decepticons.


"Defend my family or die!" is hard to understand but Op is saying that Galvatron's forces/Lockdown/Creators would kill them all if they did not unite.

The Dinobots have always been like that, though. You have to best them and hold them at gunpoint to get them to do anything. Optimus was tired, pissed off, and ready to end it. What else was he supposed to do?



OP could of said


"Defend my family or we will all perish"

2. The difference is that this trailer came out after the movie was on dvd/bluray so don't pull that card out.


Baybashing is synonym with Transformers nowadays. Get used to it. It's been seven years of it, so it's normal.

Oh and it was a sarcastic remark. All the Transformer trailers, before or after the official theatrical and DVD releases are designed to make the movie look as appealing as possible. I'm grateful to see the Honest Trailer for it. Because it means that we got at least one funny thing out of Age of Extinction

Brains became an arse hole from being tortured by Humans but besides that i think that the Autobot's threat were minimal especially since Hound only threatened Joyce a few time because he was the head of KSI and was one of two heads in their comrades murders and melted for parts to make their own robots that later went hay wire.
There's also Optimus's very first lines of the movie being "I'll kill you!" which he spoke even before he realized where he was, meaning that he was threatening to murder the first people he'd come across no matter who they were.

Only reason he didn't was because the first people he did come across happened to be ones trying to calm him down rather than trying to kill him like the last ones he came across before going into stasis/hiding were. Had he instead woken up to a bunch of much more hostile humans, he'd have probably opened fire on them if only to at least defend himself.

"Look at the monitors! You must help stop these disasters."
"Uh, me Grimlock not care whole planet fall apart. Make no difference to me Grimlock."
"With you on it?"
"Hmm, hadn't thought of that."

Scene from "The Ultimate Doom, Part 2", in which Prime and Wheeljack convince the Dinobots to help out by simply pointing out the logic of "If you guys don't help, you'll be just as screwed as everyone else."

As for what else they could have done in this version to convince the Dinobots to help, a lot of this issue is rooted more in the writing of this scene, in which it's more of the filmmakers' fault for depicting the Dinobots more like savage beasts who'd need to be tamed rather than sentient beings who could be coerced through persuasion.

I'm not necessarily saying that the scene should have been changed to Optimus using logic and reason to rationally convince a troupe of eloquent-minded British-accented Dinobots to partake in a jolly good show of sportsmanship (however amusing that might have been :lol: ), but simply that the Dinobots didn't need to be reduced to mere animals to make the scene look cool.

Although I do concur with mirageandjazz1197's suggestion of "we will all perish", which does fit with the aforementioned coercion from "The Ultimate Doom".

The Dinobot's are knights so I would of loved to see a semblance of civility blended in with all of his savagery so he would be civil as a robot, savage as a dinosaur.

To be frank, before the movie came out, I imagined Patrick Stewart as a potential candidate for the voice of Grimlock. :P

But alas, twas not to be.




P.S. - I really gotta quit talking about this stuff in this thread. It's taking away from the good stuff I need to put into the finishing touches on my soon-to-be-posted review of the movie.
