Transformers Dark of the Moon has officially premiered to the general public in the United States (I just got back myself). Since we are a community with a very active message board, it's time to sound off!

What did you think about Transformers Dark of the Moon? Better than the 1st? Better than the 2nd? Best movie ever? Or, do you think it was scrap?

Let us know by sounding off in our Transformers Movie Discussion Forum. There are tons of different threads on every aspect of the movie, and if there isn't one for what you're thinking, you can start one!

Have fun, keep it civil, and then go back and see DOTM again tomorrow.

Enjoy!

Ok, so do I need to use the spoiler tags here?
Doomofman

Possibly, you could ask a mod or such but this is the kind of thread where people will KNOW that spoilers will be posted in so... I wouldn't worry too much.
Nachtsider
Monkey, can you finally clear up the confusion as to what the Ferrari and Blue Mercedes' names are?

Also, regarding Shockwave - how much of a challenge does he give the Autobots? And what does he sound like?

Thanks!
Stryker055
Okay, do Megatron and Optimus team up against Sentinel? And does Megatron give up the fight at the end and pretty much surrender to Optimus?

If that doesn't happen, I'm going to be severely pissed.
Doomofman
He said the Merc is Q or Que and he didn't remember the Ferraris name but it did have an italian accent
brains
Yes please explain what happens at the end. It sounds like it's nothing like what happens in the book
Haloid1177
Does Sentinel really shoot Ironhide right in the face? And does Ironhide play a major role in the scene with the Dreads?

kind of both lol
doworkson123
he has a lot of questions to answer....
Monkey-Hands
OK then.
First of all, TF's that are in the movie:

Optimus
Bumblebee
Ratchet
Sideswipe (convertible now)
Ironhide
Starscream
Megatron
Shockwave
Soundwave
Megatron
Sentinel Prime
Q
Wheelie + friend
Barricade
Wreckers (3 or 4 of them)
Dino?? (Ferarri)
Laserbeak
and lots of others.

Transformers that die:

Ironhide - killed by Sentinel Prime
Q - killed by Soundwave
Soundwave - killed by Bumblebee
Megatron - killed by Optimus
Sentinel Prime - killed by Optimus
Shockwave - killed by Optimus
Barricade - killed by Eps and his team
Wheelie and his friend - they die in one of the big spaceships as both are destroying it from the inside
Optimus gets his arm cut off by Sentinel Prime.
Carlie talks Megatron into fighting against Sentinel Prime which helps Optimus getting back up and kill both of them.
Starscream - killed by Sam

Soundwave looks much smaller compared to the 2nd movie.
The Wreckers looks cool too except the red one. He looks like he can't even walk.
There're 3 black SUV's which I forgot the names. Crankcase and Dread or something?
They get killed by Ironhide, Sideswipe and Dino.
tpainzbro
Would you say the robots have personaltities and a fair amount of lines

If Megatron helped Optimus kill Sentinel, why did Optimus kill him? Did Megatron turn on him afterwards? Please detail the events of his death, because this is very different from the book.
shadow2879
If Optimus kills Megs, does Megs fight back or just lets Optimus kill him? And can you post up your ticket stubs or Screen pass as proof for us to see?

Wow, way to repay a new ally, Prime.
MikeDiaz
So I've seen two sources confirming Dino lives! That's good enough for me

Oh yes, my questions:

1. DINO: how many fight scenes does he participate in; how badass is he (compared to the other Autobots); and how much screen time does he have?
2. STARSCREAM: does he fight anywhere else other than in the Chicago final battle; and how much screen time does he have?
3. What's the best Autobot(s) vs. Decepticon(s) fight in the entire movie?

Thanks
tonks00
i take it by the fact that you weren't sure how many of the wreckers there were that they dont get a lot of screen time? what were their voices like

No Twins in the movie.
Sentinel shoots Ironhide in the back twice. Very sad.
Megatron looks super awesome with his cape. He has those little spiders running around his head trying t repair him as he's still damaged from the fight in Egypt.
The Wreckers don't talk that much but when the talk the mostly curse lol.
Shockwave is not seen that much in the movie. 3 times if I remember correctly.
It could be that I heard him say "Optimus" one time but I'm not sure.
In the end Optimus fights Sentinel who cuts off Optimus' right arm with his blade/sword.
Carlie the talsk Megs into fighting Sentinel saying that when Sentinel has what he want's (bringing Cybertron to earth) Megs will be his bitch haha.
Megs then fights Sentinel which helps Optimus get back up and fight both of them.
He splits Megs' head with his axe and rips his head and his "spine out.
Then he shoots Sentinel in the face twice with a huge shotgun.
Shockwave gets smashed by Optimus' hand and he got his eye ripped out by him.
Barricade has one line I think and then gets killed by the humans.
Lots of people die getting shot by the Cons. Only the bones are left of them.
Haloid1177
How long is Ironhide on-screen? Is he a major character in the scene with Dino and Sideswipe?

That doesn't make any sense. Did Optimus just turn right around and kill Megatron after he helped him kill Sentinel? Were there any words between them?
tonks00
what was q like?
MikeDiaz
What's the best fight scene in the movie?
And just how badass is Dino on a scale of 1 to 10?
brains
He splits Megs' head with his axe and rips his head and his "spine out.

Holy cow Prime sounds like a murdering maniac. At least he collects Megatron's head for his trophy room
Hiraga
Holy fucking shit Optimus. That's all very horrifying.

....And even more BADASS. I love this Optimus Prime so much. He's just as heroic as the other Prime's thoughout TF history, but he gets shit DONE.

sorry guys but its sounding more legit to me. I would still have liked it better if the twins were in and went out like heroes in the book.
Shockwave69
are you sure prime loses an arm?
Nachtsider
Monkey, about Starscream. Does he cause much damage before he dies? Does he at least get to kill someone?
kanine
Damn, Optimus just seems too overpowered.

I got 2 questions for you monkey. No one else answer these please.

1. What happens in the opening scene of the movie?
2. What happens with Sam and a watch?
Sideswipe80
Monkey is the humor more like the 1st movie or the 2nd one? Does Sideswipe get a lot of screen time?

Optimus Prime pulls a Sub-zero fatality move on Megatron.
Shockwave69
if he doesnt show a pass or ticket, he's lying
brains
I don't understand the Prime-Megatron-Sentinel fight. If Megatron actually helps Optimus, why would Optimus up and murder Megatron unless Megs is still trying to harm Optimus during the fight.
Chopperface
So the scene where Ironhide is killed is sad? As in, emotional deaths for the robots?

Wow, I knew people were bitching about Prime being too violent, but damn, this time I think I might agree with them - unless we're not getting the whole story on why Optimus kills Megatron anyway. I mean, Megatron, his nemesis, former friend, comes to his aid, and Prime kills him anyway? Moreprimeland is gonna have fun trying to defend this. This is really dissapointing to hear, but I guess not a movie killer.

So, would you say the robots get better development and focus on their character this time around?

Who would you call the "main" focus robots this time around? For example, ROTF had Prime, Bumblebee, Jetfire, the Twins, Wheelie, and Megatron, Starscream and The Fallen on the other side.

Who fits as a background character, ala Ratchet and Ironhide in ROTF?

Also, what models are reused in this movie? We've seen Brawl and Long Haul so far. What other Decepticon models, if any, are reused in the film?

Any luck recognizing the voices for the Transformers, by chance, or catching them in the credits?

This sounds totally BA. I know some people feel Optimus is being too harsh but you got to look at the stakes. This is FULL ON invasion. "The Decepticons will never leave this planet alone". Without more Autobots, the only solution is to kill ALL of them.

Megs fights back but has no chance against him as he's still wounded from the fight in the last movie.
I took a few pics from the red carpet as I wanted to take pics from Shia & co but we weren't allowed to. They took all mobile phones and cameras and we got it back after the movie.

I got to agree with them, some of this (especially the whole Wheelie and Brains getting killed bit) is starting to sound a might farfetched. I hate to say it, but...

Ticket/pass or it didn't happen.
shadow2879
can you please answer my other 2 questions and ill leave you be.

Okay, but why did Optimus fight Megatron in the first place?
Opticron Primal
If this is all true I can already hear the bitching about Optimus being so violent.

I, on the other hand, will watch with my mouth open at the amount of badass Psycho Prime will unleash.
Ratchets Hatch
Just curious - was the premiere in English or dubbed in Russian?
