Not very reassuring, but nothing I hear about this movie is. I'll still see it at least once though... no matter what.
i've had the horrible feeling this movie will end up being aimed at the spykids audience for a while now
spiderman was able to be cool to uncomic fans without any kids why does transformers need them
Well, It could be worse, there could be an abundance of Bodily gas joke's, and we all know how they crap up a movie.
Still, At least if they were going to have some cheese, get everyone to walk out when the guy say's
'Theres the door'.
I'm just in this for the robots.
Robots. car chases, and shit blowing up.
as long as the movie has these three things I can deal with cringe inducing dialog.
The dialogue does seem a little cheesy, but it is just paraphrased, and scenes like that are frequently done repeatedly. The college 'genius' kids with the inane dialogue is a little disappointing, but as was said earlier, it could be worse. It is a summer movie, and must therefore appeal to the lowest common denominator - damn I hate how the advancement of civilization and modern medicine has effectively reversed the process of evolution. The stupid people keep growing in number and we're forced to cater to them.
I say we take all the warning labels off of everything and let evolution and "survival of the fitest" take care of everything for us.
Sounds like this is one of the scenes that tie in to the Vortex/Scorponok scene. And an alarm noise? Odd, from what I heard it would be more of a screech...Interesting.
I'm surprised people are keeping up with all the scene leaks and such. IMHO, it would ruin the movie for me.
Absolute schlock. The Fast and the Furious meets Spykids. I'm only in this for the toys.
Y'know. With that I'm even more bummed Soundwave isn't the helicopter.
Anyway. You can't judge a movie from something like this, its all in the entire package.
I will let the quate say what I've been saying all along:
if its supposed to be a different noise, something alien, then the alarm is probably just a placeholder. when the movie gets cut and mixed with sound and stuff it'll probably be replaced. sound, other than dialogue is seldom the same between shooting and final product
but still, i was really hoping at least Bay would stray away from the whole "rad,alexis, carlos" formula with these dam humans but from the sounds of it here, guess not :\
Wow. This is going to make Armageddon seem like Shakespeare.
I think everyone attending the premiere should get a free slicer to help cut through the cheese.
From what I heard, those kids are all 16-18 years old and part of the same thinktank as Maggie. At first she was supposed to be the only one brought in for the ask, but since that was rather unrealistic, they hired the other ones as well, with Maggie still being the most important one. So I doubt that their character extends beyond "OMG ZAT IS KELLER!!!111" and "Here are the results, miss Maggie".
And the fact that I beleive in is if one was allowed to slap stupid people, your hand will be hurting in less than 5 minitues.
I'm going to stay away from rumor-mongering and gossip, but from Bay's track record, and the news that I hear about this movie (especially the 70/30 human-to-robot screentime ratio), this movie doesn't look very hopeful.
Bay's track record shows that he LOVES making half the movie just someone pointing at maps and computers while giving patriotic speeches, a la Billy Bob Thornton in Armageddon, Michael Biehn in The Rock, etc.
These speeches often include many camera cuts in a few seconds' time, a beautiful exterior shot of the Pentagon/White House/NASA headquarters at nightfall, and subtitles showing you what time of day it is.
This on-set report does nothing to contradict my assumptions.
