Transformers: Age of Exctinction woes!

Postby Sapphire Wolf » Fri Jul 04, 2014 9:36 pm

I'm just glad that I did NOT see Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. The verdict... it's the same god dang thing!!! The formula of Michael Bay repeats. Not enough Transformers, too much focus on squishy humans, the Dinobots look like garbage (yes I did see screencaps and they look awful!), and finally the Transformers still look like hideous jumbles of junk. I know that you're gonna be like "You better grow up, get rid of Nostalgia, and shut your brain off and enjoy the movie". No! I will not acknowledge that the Michael Bay movies are great, they are god-awful! The first movie the main battle in the city, the second film in the desert, the 3rd film in a city again, and this film... the Doggone City again!!! I mean there are great current movies such as The Avengers (2012), The Lego Movie (2014), and heck even Dragon 2 (I need to see it, I heard it's awesome). Transformers 4... is a complete abomination to cinema!!! If you want to see proper Transformers, watch the cartoons such as the original Generation 1 show, Beast Wars, Animated, and heck even Transformers Prime. Heck even War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron are better than the games made for Bayformers! I mean, WFC and FOC are made for Transformers Prime and the "Aligned Continuity" (War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, and Transformers: Prime) and the "Bay Continuity" are separate. Final Verdict, this movie is the extended version of Jumping the Shark, I know that Michael Bay jumped the shark so many times. End of story.

Yeah, that's what I've read from some Transformer fans, that the movies from Micheal Bay are not exactly faithful nor very good.

I've just only seen the first movie and part of the secound one, I enjoyed it as a cheap action film (without taking the Transformers franchise in account as such), it was entertaining.

But I totally understand your point, it is not what a real Transformers based film should be.

Mindless entertainment can be a little bit of fun, but it always seems to be missing... a mind.
I'm an intelligent creature, I can't really enjoy so-called entertainment if it's not intelligent.

So, what Sapphirewolf said. :P
We live in a universe... It's distracting

LOOL!

It's often the mind that's in the way of having fun ... short term. Mind (pun!) the consequences though.

I just love seeing huge metal mechanisms turning each other to crap. :mrgreen:

Sapphire Wolf.

I watched 20 minutes of the first movie and then turned it off.
Since then... I won't waist my time or breath on his "morphing" robots!

Now with TMNT, he nearly killed it before they even started production on it when it was revealed he wanted to make the turtles from outer space! :facepalm:
Thankfully someone had enough pull to make him change that part!
The rest of my judgment will be made after seeing the movie (on a borrowed DVD)! haha

I love the first Transformers movie. Watched it at least three times. I just like all that (illusion of) huge, powerful technology. Plus the movie has its funny moments, too.

Yeah, if your expectations are not too high it's fine. Second one actively annoyed me in parts with bad attempts at humor and that ridiculous physics-agnostic railgun, but the third was a little better again. Haven't seen #4. Suffice it to say I don't look for thought-provoking, suspenseful stories in Michael Bay films though.
