Have been waiting for this since the first dancing robot advert.
Rein it in, junior. You know who's behind it? Michael Bay. Yeah, that's right: Pearl Harbour, Bad Boys 1 & 2. Him.
I'd been under the illusion that it was Michael Mann (Heat etc) and it might therefore be good. I'm more than a little disappointed now.
Mann would make it into a 5 hour long snore-fest.
Transformers were always shitty so Bay has found his level, clearly.
imagine killing off the best characetrs right in the first 5 mins?!!!
it's just so BRUTAL.
he was rubbish
...in the comics, anyway.
He didn't like being in charge so basically went mental all the time.
Optimus returns, though. That might have been Season 4 but it was only three episodes long or something anyway.
twice in season 3.
he finally dies for good in Takara, the japanese season 4.
Judd fucking Nelson in the movie - show some respect.
And why were they fucking?
but you know it's gonna suck balls.
Michael Bay is directing.
but an actual film like that Car advert?
what was his name? he was my hero when i was 7
and probably not.
last I read Soundwave - previously a cassette recorder - was going to be a helicopter.
megatron - gun, of course - was to be a tank.
i mean, he was supposed to be the leader
One him, in Starscream's hand, four (?) Autobots.
The man/gun/robot was a legend.
he could turn into a gun AND a cannon. totally pwned starscream with one shot.
...so never utilised his powers properly, however capable he was of pwning everyone.
(If you were forged by a God, you'd be pretty shit hot hard, too.)
Megatron, though, was ruthless. Never stopped killing, destroying, etc etc. Galvatron was EMO.
i like how they actually gave galvatron a proper mental breakdown in the comics. that was ace.
this is WRONG!
i bet they won't even get Stan Bush to do the soundtrack either.
I'm going on a killing spree.
if it looks as good as something like War of the Worlds then a live action film might actually be pretty cool.
Although it probably will still suck.
...and John Turturro (sp?) sign up for sure, it'll have some decent actors, at least.
Which is more than can be said of Fantastic Four, Daredevil and other comic adaptations.
(Yeah, I'm called TF a comic cos that's what I read... the cartoons were shite in comparison)
the cartoon series' were incredibly bad. i had a brain spasm once and bought the first series on DVD but it's basically unwatchable.
although if you don't have it, you should buy the Transformers: Takara boxset just for the dodgy english dubbing done somewhere in south east asia.
i still need to buy more of the graphic novels..
...or re-releases of the comics in hardback.
Dinobot War = good.
who was the jeep? the one with the hydraulic arms
Hydraulic arms? Huffer maybe?
a fight to THE DEATH in one of the japanese episodes i have. except blaster is actually "billy" for some reason. they both die. soundwave gets rebuilt as soundblaster. billy gets rebuilt as.. er.. blaster.
I saw some pictures from the set, but it only shows actors milling about.
APPARENTLY they have made a 25-foot-tall Bumblebee, though.
Rumble (one of Soundwaves little cassette guys, like Ravage and Laserbeak).
...sorry, was thinking trucks.
Huffer? Was he the big 4X4?
just had a look at Wiki and Huffer did indeed have hydraulic arms. *bows to superior Transformers knowledge*
DARE! Dare to believe you can survive! You hold the future in your haaaaaaaaaaaaaands! DARE! Dare to believe...something else that I can't remember.
And...You got the (BLANK) You got the POWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!
Put your head in the microwave and get yourself a tan.
Best soundtrack ever.
I worked somewhere in 2002 and one of the people I worked with had the soundtrack on tape and brought it in. He and I were caught punching the air many a time.
it was rumoured to be directed by spielberg, but imdb says it isn't now.
which rubber-stamps it's shitness.
in the correct place today,
Executive producer only.
Which I think is still the case...?
If Frank Welker doesn't voice Megatron there'll be TROUBLE.
...John Turturro = a good actor actually, c'est une FACTUM.
You ever read what Orson Welles made of his role in the first movie?
He couldn't remember what it was he'd just voiced, saying only that it had something to do with toy robots being vile and nasty to each other.
don't.its about cyborgs and humans.possibly the worst film ever, the name evades me. guntrip?
if a film about homosexual robots was called Guntrip.
I doubt it is though.
sparks, or circuit. one of those words is involved.
a really twisted remake of Short Circuit or something?
one of my friends has it. ill get the name off him.
the script has been co-written by the person who wrote catwoman..
i also sorta like the fact that it was Welles' last ever screen role :D
if anyone hasn't read the plot line for the upcoming Die Hard FOUR, do it. now. NOW. NOW!!
will be as good as Snakes On A Plane.
is the only way to do a sequel to "snakes on a plane". LOTS OF SNAKES! LOTS OF PLANES!
"wolves in a lada" budget russian remake.
john mcclane vs drownedinsound?!?!
how did you only just find out daniel?!
chalked the idea of live action Transformers down to being a knightmare and had supressed all knowledge of it.
now THAT would be a movie...
