    I love the Transformers films and don't care for Star Wars all that much (I enjoy watching them but I still haven't seen any of the newer movies) but that whole Yoda bit had me *skepticalface*

    I've seen Cogman only in the MTV clip, but his "helpful" commentary did crack me up :lol

    Oh don't get me wrong, I like Cogman, especially the dog-walking part. But comparing him to Yoda?

    Unless Cogman turns into a ToYoda...

    I'll see myself out now.

    I can't wait to see what "back in the groove" entails.

    Well I guess its safe to say that the visual effects in this film will be 100 times better than the effects from AoE.

    ...described by Spielberg as “the greatest four-and-a-half-foot character since Yoda”.

    Bay's writers would like a non CGI, half turtle, half giraffe wearing a viking helmet played by William H Macy standing on top of Meryl Streeps shoulders. Bay responds with Meryl and William are in and excited for this acting challenge.

    Later Bay's writers would like Devastators testicles to actually come back as sentient robot twin Decepticons called The Ball Busters, the Decepticon equivalent of The Wreckers.

    Seriously? Yoda was like 2 feet tall, not 4 and a half. If you're going to make hyperbolic comparisons then GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, Spielberg.

    Honestly, you don't need to rely on Shia to carry a film.


    The writers made Bay soundvery accomodating, hopefully not to the film's loss.


    Cogman sounds more appealing. I hope he gets a "little hero vs big villain" fight like what Yoda has had.

    I will absolutely be surprised if he doesn't get some awesome action scenes. He's already taken down Crosshairs who is quite a bit bigger, but that doesn't technically count as a fight I think.

    Reading this as a TransFormer fan, there is nothing of interest. They've fully adopted just taking the brand and making it their brand, instead of sharing our brand. These movies are getting further and further from anything recognizable or enjoyable - they exist in a delusional realm where adaptations are still mangled because "we know better than what's worked for over 30 years." Do the Avengers have to put up with a bunch of new one-dimensional characters inserted because there are no good Avengers to use? Change for changes sake just means these people weren't good enough to start from scratch, so they took the lazy route to box office returns while carelessly doing as they please with the foundation. Do not accept terrible brand management just to have something with the TF logo on it (it isn't even the TF logo anymore but rather some bland-yet-overdesigned mess).

    How can something have nothing to do with TF yet still be so completely unoriginal? Epic lameness. And you might notice that most A-list talent avoids these films. He isn't getting stuck with Tyrese and Duhamel yet again by getting anyone he wants, these are terrible actors coming back because they are running out of places to go.

    The real nail in the coffin is likely that even if you assume TF5 will be good, which it won't be, but even if it was - who is going to suffer through the others to even get there?

    Kill it.
