    How was the aspect ratio on a regular screen? I won't be able to see it in IMAX thanks to mr.fish king.

    Just got back, and I LOVED it. Just gonna list my thoughts in the order I think them:

    1. F-ing loved the Cybertron scenes. Seriously, the fact that we see so many characters in such a short time made me so happy.

    2. Loved how we just jumped into the Blitzwing fight. Was not expecting him to yank Bee's voice box out.

    3. I actually love Charlie after the film. Kinda bummed we probably won't see her in the future.

    4. Was not expecting to see Cliffjumper, and I was actually sad to see him killed off.

    5. Loved any scene with both BB and Charlie.

    6. Didn't mind Charlie's family, and found her story interesting.

    7. The big conflict at the end was awesome.

    8. BB and Charlie's departure at the end of the film actually hit me in the feelings.

    9. This is definitely a reboot due to the last scene. And BTW, never been so hyped from the final scene of a TF movie than the one in BB.

    My overall rate of this film would be 9/10. Definitely want to go see it again, and I recommend everyone to go see it. :)

    Can we talk about how fucking amazing the Cybertron scenes were, especially the part with Soundwave? When Soundwave and Shockwave advance on the Autobots and Soundwave says, "Decepticons attaaaack", that sounded so fucking good. Jesus Christ we should've gotten this years ago.

    I had planned to burn this if the film didn’t turn out well...luckily I think it’ll be staying.

    My fan theory is TLK WW2 Bumblebee is actually Movieverse Centurion.

    I don’t like that my most base instinct is to disagree with this statement.

    It seemed pretty standard. No jumping around or noticeable cutoffs. On that topic - are you aware of any IMAX showings anywhere? Every screen near me for that week is showing Aquaman and nothing for Bumblebee. So I got some Dolby Cinema tickets because I want to experience in it a premium format but no IMAX was available.

    If it wasn’t filmed in IMAX though then Dolby Cinema might actually be better for the improved colors and sound over IMAX.

    Feel free to. Just glad that these guys hating on the movie designs (after years of not knowing who was who and what was what on the screen) aren’t the ones making the decisions for future movies. Extremely glad that it’s all just opinion.

    Bumblebee won't release in IMAX in the US. I find Dolby better than IMAX anyways.

    *Cliffjumper Dies*
    Dropkick: Welp Prime's gonna need a new first lieutenant.
    Jazz: *Sneezes*
    Optimus: Jazz, for some strange reason I feel the urge to promote you to my first lieutenant.
    Jazz: What about Cliffjumper?
    Optimus: Who's Cliffjumper? Oh, that doesn't matter I have a feeling you'll be twice the bot than he was.

    I guess Infinity War is a reboot then. Thanos looked different.
    Not impossible to explain. Could've found out about it later.
    If you were a scientist, wouldn't you want more alien subjects? And these were alive and able to transform into cars, planes and helicopters. Previously unknown.
    That was going to be a plot hole from the beginning. How did Bee know English in WWII? How did Jetfire know English?
    He did seem to know about the Earth's Air Force.
    Wasn't there some speculation a long, long time ago that 2007 was not their fist trip to Earth? That they had a base on a nearby planet? That would be an easy explanation. They left Earth and came back.
    Means nothing
    Style change. Plus 20 year difference. Also, if they leave Earth and come back in 2007, they don't have pods anymore because they were destroyed on entry.
    The AllSpark was gone for a really long time. Killing Optimus Prime and the Autobots would result in the end of the war either way, because their enemy would be dead.

    Now some things that support a prequel:

    - Sector 7 base is inside Hoover Dam.
    - Seymour Simmons is a Sector 7 agent.
    - Bumblebee turns into a 1977 Camaro
    - If we take the TLK retcon of Optimus not hearing Bee's voice since Cybertron fell, it matches up. Cybertron fell, Bumblebee left, then Bumblebee lost his voice.
    - Bee learns how to talk through the radio and is a pro at it 20 years later

    I'm not saying they can't make this a reboot if they choose to, however you can't ignore that this could work as a prequel and has the same amount of continuity issues as Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction and The Last Knight.
