    They stole TF concept for an alien battleship, something MBay was dreaming of but never got the chance to realize.

    Anyway that would make a great Tidal Wave. But we need an Autobot to combat it.

    I doubt he really cares, but with "transformers" being on the trailer, this movie is gonna make millions at the box office.

    Bays dream was never Transformers. He was very reluctant to do the whole thing at all. And you do realise that Bay wasn't the one to come up with the concept of Alien Robots?

    He doesn't give a shit because he's busy bathing in his millions.

    Wow, that really has the feel of the Transformers movies. Looks like some amazing visuals. I'll see it.

    Well, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so maybe he's happy about it?

    He's probably thinking "Damn. I'm glad they didn't make me cast Rihanna in MY movie."

    That looks really cool. It has a definite TF vibe going on in it.

    And I doubt Michael Bay even cares.

    Why do I have a bad feeling Battleship will be the spiritual successor to Wing Commander?

    I'm staying FAR away.

    The ship would have made an awesome Tidal Wave. Who do you think the spheres would be?

    I don't thnk he'll be ticked off at all. I wouldn't be suprised that he may love it and use some inspiration from the film for TF4.

    The movie is a HUGE pass for me, but then again I'm not one of the sheeple who will watch any crap that comes out of Hollywood or buy any crap that Hasbro puts out just because it has the word "Transformers" attached to it. Maybe if they would've done a WWII inspired Battleship movie, which is what the original game is based off of, then it might have been a watchable movie.

    Its got explosions and tons of cgi.
    He'll love it.
    I like Bay, he know how to have fun and doesn't give to damns if he is hated or not, thats the best part about making movies.
    You have fun!
    Thats what movies are for, to have fun!

    Anyone remember when Bay accused McG of ripping him off for Terminator Salvation?

    I'm really liking the alien designs, especially the snake-ship and the battle-wheels. I'm not too excited for this, but if my brother somehow gets me to go watch it, then at the very least I can be sedated by all the cool effects.

    Not so sure about Rihanna's acting debut. Seems kind of random to bring a famous artist into the acting scene.I get the whole well-known celebrity or incredibly attractive female deal when it comes to movies and stuff, but I think it's kind of dumb just to bring someone untested in acting just because they're hot or well known(or in Rihanna's case, both.) I really like her though and hope she does well.
