    Well, considering that Megatron was frozen, killed, dumped at sea, killed again, and became a sparkles zombie, I think he was being more metaphorical. Earth was a living hell to him, after all.

    Unicron is usually portrayed as the Cybertronian equivalent to Satan, with "The Pit" or "the Inferno" being the hell analog.

    Then Sir Edmund Burton takes up his cane and points it at Megatron (Stonehenge scene), it transforms into a gun with the typical transformation sound. Apparently it was a Transformer all along. :)

    Maybe its not a transformer so much as a disguised Cybertronian weapon. Sort of like how Cade's weapon in Aoe went from a sword to a gun while not being a living Cybertronian.

    That is also possible. :)  It was a nice touch, though. :)

    Yep. I love when we get the g1 transformation sound mixed in with the much more advanced movie transformation sounds.

    My favorite part was when they showed hot rod as a Lamborghini in a black and white photo from the 60s even though he just became a Lamborghini five minutes before that in the movie and also Ironhide as a 2000 GMC

    Not sure if mentioned..
    -When Cade and the team is leaving the base, Sqweeks arm appears to be standard, yet Izzy strapped on a Deceptocon arm before that
    -After the two Knight on the dhip were killed by Nemesis Prime, they suddenly disappear form the floor in the next shot

    Maybe they went back for backup from their other knight buddies...

    This could only make in the most vague sense but... if Hot rod has a gun that can stop time couldn't he be some sort of time traveller who can... oh whatever I give up trying to explain that!

    despite both decepticons debuting in the same film, all the way back in 2007, tlk was the first time megatron & barricade were shown interacting with one another

    I don't know why people say that Bee being in WW2 contradicts the first movie. In the first movie, he was already on Earth, and there was nothing that indicated how mich time he had been here. For all we know, he's been here since 1700.

    Not sure if mentioned:

    George Clooney is on the International Space Station as Cybertron is about to go past it. I can only explain this with one of the film editors having had worked on the film Gravity.

    Sqeeks says: "Oooooh s#;+" - when his cover is blown in the middle of the street, in front of all the Decepticons.

    There are quite a few shots of Slug in the background in the junkyard. More than I've noticed the first few times.

    "T" is baby Dinobot T-Rex's nickname, as Cade calls him.

    Sheriff Sherman has three children, playing in the foreground, as the Decepticons are approaching the junkyard.

    Edit: (oh yeah, almost forgot about this one)!

    The crashed knight in the no-go zone - he says something like: "got to stop Quintessa", only he can't quite get past the first syllable of her name. At first I was under the impression, that he was speaking Cybertronian, but it was all English.

    Upon some contemplation, I figured the reasoning behind the events preceding this scene, which had to have happened.

    The guardian knights are based on Earth, safeguarding the staff (killswitch). Yes, their ship has crashed, but we don't know the circumstances of that event, only that they weren't in Unicron's orbit by accident. Yes, Quintessa said that they betrayed her, but for all we know, she could have been the one, who wanted to steal it from them for herself, knowing it's power.

    Meanwhile The last knight, dedicated to protect this knowledge, stayed behind on Cybertron, and when Quintessa's plan became evident, he set course for Earth, with his talisman.
    TRF surveillance takes a snapshot of an unknown Transformer in his cockpit during flight. The glass dome, and the robot's face mask aren't damaged yet (Lennox later talks about this b&w photo).

    TRF shoot down this particular, greenish knight out of the sky, and Santos' team go to the area to retrieve him.

    Drift alerts Cade of the whereabouts of this shot down Autobot ship, as we see Yeager prepping his vehicle before dawn. I say Drift, because of his tracking skills from AOE, but Hound could have done it just as well.

    The curious teenagers get to the crash site first, but all of this activity, and the scouring TRF sentinels, get the attention of Izzy, who out of the necessity to protect her territory, proceeds to eliminate the TRF threat with Squeeks.

    Now impaired, and in his death throes, the last knight bestows the talisman onto Cade, but we can pick up the rest of the story from here on out.

    tlk is the first film since rotf that at least 3 named villains survive:

    tlk:
    barricade
    berserker
    megatron
    quintessa
    unicron*?

    rotf:
    megatron
    soundwave
    starscream

    (also the 3rd time this series at least 3 named villains survive)

    tf1:
    barricade
    scorponock
    starscream

    (also continuing the tradition of having at least 1 named villain survive)

    dotm:
    barricade
    loader* technically loader isn't shown being killed however he was confirmed to have been killed in the battle of chicago by attinger's cards hence the technicality..also, he's barely qualifying as a 'named' villain)

    aoe:
    galvatron

    astonishingly (or perhaps not?) megatron/galvatron & barricade are the only villains to survive at least 3 films..also tlk was the first film where both survived in the same film

    Just a guess; We saw a person on the station just as Cybertron was about to run over it. G1DeadEnd means that person is George Clooney.

    Maybe it's a guy who looks like him as a reference to gravity, because I think we'd have heard about it if he was in the film in any way.
