    Does Bumblebee ever turn into the Jeep they auctioned off?

    Shatter calls him "comrade" throughout the movie, and that's it.
    They didn't seem to have any sort of interest between each other, maybe only the common interest in hunting down the bots and calling in the Con army to Earth.

    Yes, we do get to see briefly BB's cybertronian vehicle mode, and it's really reminiscent of his WFC/FoC form.

    Yes.

    Yes, he scans a jeep that's on the side of the street after he crashes, and he transforms briefly during the initial chase from Burns and his squad.

    No. Nothing. No references to him or not even a split second cameo. Nothing at all.

    Mmm. I kinda wish I hadn't read all these spoilers. Thrilled to learn what I have though.

    I loved the Bay films for what they are. I think that the Autobot relationship with the human government was realistic and well paced in how it grew and deteriorated. Optimus Prime, aka Murder Prime, is probably one of my favorite incarnations of the character. He's so broken but he'll never stop fighting for those who can't defend themselves, plus in a less sophisticated sense I'm a pretty big fan of the chest thumping, foaming at the mouth violence that Optimus displayed. Sue me. I also love that by Transformers 5 the series was clearly meme-ing itself.

    "Oh people didn't like that the Transformers had all those adventures in Earth's past? It seems contrived? Okay, this time let's establish that Transformers have been present for every single major historical event in human history."

    But now,
    I agree that these movies have run their course the way they are, and I'm ready for a more proper "Transformers" story that returns to it's fight the good fight, sense of wonder roots and BB seems like just that. I hope it does well so Travis Knight can continue to work on the brand. He seems like the guy for the job and the clearly reboot nature of the film is a great move. No need to be tied down by violent memes. [/spoilers]

    That's the first time I've seen someone criticize the humor of Thor Ragnarok.

    I was more of a fan of the first films humour, ragnarok while it had amazing action just fell flat on the jokes I was squirming in my seat watching half of it.

    The whole movie felt like the wheelie humping, bumblebee leaking and sam's mom scenes in tranformers. Thor and Loki brotherly moments and the awesome action stopped it from being a complete stinker but it was still the worst mcu film (not the worst marvel film that distinction falls to fan4stic)

    Yeah Ragnorak is also my least favorite Marvel movie by far, I didn’t care for the constant humor. I actually prefer the humor in Transformers and Pirates more.

    He doesn't get his voice back. Throughout the move he learns to use the radio to communicate.

    What? Then why did every news outlet report that Dylan O’Brien was voicing him?

    Nope. Stayed throughout all the credits, nothing.

    It's good, I'd give The Iron Giant as some sort of reference.

    Terrible with timings, so here's a VERY rough estimate:
    1st scene (opening): 5-10 mins.
    2nd scene: Up to 5 mins.
    No.
    He does voice him at the beginning.
    There's no opening narration - just normal dialogue, OP telling BB of Earth mostly.

    Dropkick is the first to bite the dust after BB throws a chain at his heli mode, so when he transforms he is chained up; BB then pulls the chain which basically dismembers him.
    Shatter dies by having BB shoot a missile at a port door, so it collapses causing a flood and a boat to come in - Shatter is crushed/exploded in the collision between the port wall and the boat.
