    You know, if the Transformers films were all CGI to the quality that we're used to they would be animated movies. A Cybertron movie will be animated because how else can you do it? You could build props but why would you do that when the stars are 30 feet tall?

    Possibility 1) Prime turns evil and becomes the top decepticon, goes on a killing spree eliminating all Autobots.

    2) Following an hour and a half of stupid human antics, everyone poops all over each other, then fights for 15 minutes.


    This should seem sarcastic, but I have 0.0% faith that they will produce anything better.

    They would have Charlie Chaplin as first role, written by Ernest Hemmingway himself but hell,as long as they keep Michael Bay as a director, it will stay a Michael Bay movie and that sucks.

    Imagine Transformers as written/directed by Orson Welles.

    Not brilliant visionary "I made the best film of all time, motherfuckers" Welles, but "Senile old drunk fucker hawking for a cheap, terrible wine" Welles.

    it is possible to have the movie done in time, also lets keep in mind if its true that we will have earth scenes and scenes set in space, then they dont have to spend much time filming as half of the movi would be centered in Earth, while the other half would be cosmic

    So the guy who wrote for Batman and Robin is going to be scripting TF5.

    Jesus Christ, Hasbro, just start over. If Spider-Man can get rebooted, so can Transformers.

    It pisses me off that people who complain about the lack of characterization say they skipped the 4th movie, when AoE is when they literally start improving the characterization.

    And "I am Legend" and "I, Robot". Have some faith.

    indeed AOE was a step in the right direction regarding the Transformers as characters

    I agree. The Transformers had way more character in AOE, hell even Optimus went through character development after getting betrayed by humanity.

    What characterization? Prime the homicidal maniac? Drift, Crosshairs, and Bumblebee who's "character" is they exist?

    Or maybe you mean the human characters? Like the guy who is having sex with an underage girl, and continues to remind the father of that fact at every opportunity...including while fighting for their lives, and immediately following the gruesome death of the father's closest friend. All while literally waving a laminated copy of the statute that lets him do it in the face of said father?

    Those characters?

    Batman & Robin (1997)
    Lost in Space (1998)
    Winter's Tale (2014)
    The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015)

    It's like continuing to give Adam Sandler credit because Happy Gilmore was entertaining.

    Not to mention that even if he produces a potentially quality script, he's going to have to get whatever he writes past the director and studio. And if you're at all familiar with "I Am Legend" you'll realize why that's not filling me with confidence.

    Prime, who's gone from a hero to public enemy number one, hunted, betrayed by the race he fought to protect, is now a shell of his former self, and his failure as a leader haunts him.

    Drift, a noble bot (Decepticon origins not discussed yet) who is unhappy at Bumblebee's "leadership" position.

    Crosshairs, untrusting of humans and rightly so, slightly insubordinate, and generally cocky and flashy.

    Yes, those characters.

    This is the one that pisses me off more than anything. For fuck's sake. The legal age of consent in the state of Texas is 17. In the film she is a LEGAL ADULT. There is zero statutory rape going on here. If anyone would take a minute to do some damn research this stupid argument would be defunct.

    do not forget that he also wrote :
    2005 Cinderella Man
    2001 A Beautiful Mind,
    2009 Angels & Demons
    2006 The Da Vinci Code
    2008 Fringe
    films are far from being bad.
    but all these had good directors involved in the project. Ron Howard and J.J Abrams.

    so I think he can do good or better than has been done.
    it depends on the will of all involved in the production.

    Indeed, also while his track record may not be that high, lets keep in Batman adn Robin was mainly WB fault because they ordered a really kid-friendly movie simply to cash on merchandise.

    even I am Legend which he wrote, got positive reviews from critics and got 70% in Rotten Tomatoes. so theres a chance he could write a decent TF movie, if this news is true at all based on the tweet of one of the writters

    Same here.

    It always amuses me just how much people on here (presumably all from the US) get so wound up about the whole 'underage' thing, cos over here in the UK the age of consent's 16 for everyone and I doubt anyone would hardly bat an eyelid if a 17 year old were going out with a 20 year old. Jeez, in some parts of the country they'd just be glad she wasn't pregnant at 15 with her teacher's baby...

    I'm with you. I don't understand why everyone gets their nickers in a goddamn twist over something so inconsequential.
