You can have it
Ikr same (well I'll try)
Could I use it too?
(Nods head) no
As crappy as some of these movies are....you cant lie, they are fun to watch
AOE and TLK are so boring. Sometimes DOTM can put ya to sleep.
When TF1 was released, Paris Hilton still had a tv show and the recession hadn't hit yet. I reminisced about this when I saw Bublebee.
1 and 3 were pretty good, but overall, it was a dumb series. I liked it for what it was, mind-blowing visuals associated with the most insanely idiotic writing, but obviously, I prefer good films like Bumblebee. Glad it's rebooted, but I'll still rewatch Bayverse every once in a while. I was a teen in 2007 so you might say I grew up with Michael Bay's awful movies.
As much as I love bee.. the effects can't even come close to the first one which is over a decade old.
I think they're pretty close. They have the same texturing, but the movement has improved since 2007. I know 2007 was bigger and more expensive, but their craft improves even among smaller-budgeted projects.
The scene where bee and Carly (or whatever) walk in the woods ,was terribly composited.. like original hulk movie leak levels..
As for the fight animations and transformation creativity.. Bee definitely holds the crown..
The bay movies were mocapped and lazy, but I wouldn't expect any less from a director who's an animators first.
It's hard to believe that Revenge of the Fallen will be ten years old later this year. It somehow feels like a short time, and a really long time simultaneously.
I don't think that's really accurate at all. I didn't notice anything wrong with that scene in Bumblebee, I thought it looked great. And I don't think Bay's movies used motion capture. Maybe on Quintessa and Cogman, but not for the big Transformers.
I think green screen is hard when something is lifted and dragged away. But I prefer that to CGI models of Shia LaBeouf flying around.
I just realized that between mikaela taking out frenzy and the arrival to earth scene we never saw Sam put his pants back on. Yet during the bumblebee new car mode scene he's got em on.
It's been a slow day for me.
Happened off screen.
I remembered watching this a lot on DVD. But I didn’t see it in the theaters when it came out. Back then I was 6 and 7 years old. Remembered seeing the commercials on TV a lot when this was coming out. Along with ones for the toy tie-ins for the movie and that Burger King ad. Over the years I stopped watching it. Until a couple years ago back in June 2017. I watched it for the first time on TNT. Basically it was free on demand. And I was like 16 then. For me, I thought the special effects still hold up really well. Even for 2007 standards it looked detailed. There is some of the Steve Jablonsky score I like is the theme for the Autobots, Optimus, Arrival to Earth and the All-Spark. But my all time favorite is What I’ve Done by Linkin Park. That was the first ever song from them that I ever listened to. Heck, I’d even remembered owning Ironhide, Starscream, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Blackout, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Brawl toys.
Even on the 20th Anniversary Edition DVD of the Transformers: The Movie. Basically the animated movie that came out in 1986. Which I got as a Thanksgiving gift from my grandma when she was living Yakima back then. On the widescreen disc it included the teaser trailer with the Mars Rover which does appear in the film. Along with a minute and a half long featurette for the first film.
I felt a little nostalgic just writing this.
i grew up with these films and i cant abandoned them cause of others, i will cherish this as my childhood and im proud to say im a bayverse fan so G1 fans i respect your taste but theres nothing you can really do to pull me out of bayverse
You've instantly gained my respect with these words. You can like whatever you want and criticize whatever you want; it's the attitude someone takes when they disagree that determines how their opinion will be recieved. Sadly, not everyone can disagree amicably and let others like what they like. I love most of the franchise and I wish the "tribes" could just get along. Welcome to the boards. If you like movie toys, this thread is a great, generally positive little pocket community I think you'll enjoy.
I recently re-watched the 2007 film, and was drawn to the woman who's called Ding Dong Darlin'. I addressed her in a whole thread, which has now been closed (which I suppose is fair enough).
It makes me wonder sometimes how RotF might have been had 2 things not happened...
1: no writers strike. The SWAG went on strike and they had to use non members to finish the script. This hurt the film.
2: Shia Lebuff (or however, my phone is dumb) broke his hand. They needed to figure out how to have that be in the film or delay the film till he got better. A delay probably would have been better.
I think if both didn't happen, we might have been given a better film.
