True,but "ie" is not an abbreviation for "otte."
I think the bayverse is going to destroy the transformer franchise for a few years at least.
I had no emotional reaction so far for the last two movies' news. I only read news for generations and legends stuff or idw comics. Sometimes I read other news when I'm bored and there's nothing else to read.
I'd like if the Bumblebee movie surprises me in the same way.
I’ve been underwhelmed but I think it’s because we’ve not had huge amounts of information or pics coming through during not the filming, like we had for the last couple of movies. I’m definitely excited about the movie coming out, though, just to see if it really is something different, and if we get some cool robotic looking robots.
Well no, nor is Charlie an abbreviation of ‘Charles’. Nor is Donnie an abbreviation of Donald.
It’s a ‘pet’ or nickname form of the name, not necessarily anything to do with being shorter.
Anyway the motive here is probably to make her sound that bit more tomboyish.
Hey, look... it’s... Frances McDormand...
Galva Prime: 1. Awesomepow: 0.
I'm interested because it'll give me something to do, but nowhere near as invested as I was with the other 5. What I'm holding out for is TF6 so that we can finally see it end and not have to worry about a "jump-start" to the films to make them better or something. Just finish the job and move on, right?
That Cybertron Prequel in 2020 should be phenomenal, hopefully. No humans, all robot, animated so no worries about "muh budget" excuses. Perfect.
I have been completely indifferent to movie stuff since ROTF.
"Meh" or "whatever" is my usual reaction to any movie news until I can watch the final trailers.
I feel like "Yeah, whatever".
What are these?
The creative team behind the films usually claims (or used to claim, back in the day) that the reason the robots don't show up on screen a lot is because the budget doesn't allow for it, which is complete bullshit.
No, actually it's not. That's the reason you don't see full length animated movies at the detail of the Transformers characters.
I have to agree with this.
The thing is movies exist to make money. Fans on TFW2005 and a handful of other Transformers sites may want the films to spend many tens of millions or more dollars to create this "great" robot-focused film, but that is not what the general public wants. General public members want there to be a reasonable amount of human drama and human focus. I'm not saying they want NO robot characterization, but ask the average teenager or millennial what they want and they're likely to judge the movies based on the presence and depiction of their favorite human characters. I have volunteered at summer camps and work in secondary schools, and I have talked with LOTS of non-fan teens and twenty-somethings about Transformers, so I have a good idea what many non-fans like. I know non-fans that think the recent Transformers films have TOO MUCH robot focus. I am not saying I agree with their views, but as fans we do need to be aware that our wants and needs, which are often at odds with each others, often do not overlap with what the general public prefers.
If I were Paramount would I try to appease A) tens of millions of general audience members or B) thousands of fans on TFW2005 and similar sites? The answer is obvious.
Some of the Bay movies are probably the best compromise between fandom and general public needs, despite what many fans like to pretend. Yeah, not every fan favorite robot got a lot of focus, but we have gotten some characters that have actually received decent characterization and/or played important roles in the plots, like Optimus, Lockdown, Bumblebee, Sentinel Prime, Megatron/Galvatron, Hound, Drift, Crosshairs, Jetfire, Laserbeak, and even Wheelie and Brains.
Furthermore, we have some robots that while not receiving much in the way of characterization actually had some darn good action scenes, like the Dinobots, Dreads, Sideswipe, and Stinger.
And while there are some CGI creations that are arguably not needed, like Shockwave's Driller, some things in Transformers films are better off shown, like the Cybertron flashback scenes in 2007 and DotM, the Nemesis in RotF, and Lockdown's ship in AoE.
I have zero interest in this. I thought most of the movies were ok or fine, but TLK just sucked all my ability to dare about these things.
You are looking for Transformers (2007).
Well, there's barely anything released about the movie in the first place to be excited about anything. This question would be more appropriate after the trailer drops.
The Decepticons are barely in that movie.
