What a dis on Grimlock.....The guy can beat Prime in a 1 on 1 fight. Gen 1 proved that.

And why does someone who turns into a truck need to ride anything land-based?

Oh holy fuck!

I had ZERO hope for this movie. The first three were travesties, one and all. Now I have less than zero. I have negative hope for this movie.

How is it possible that Bay took an admittedly quite inane 80s cartoon, a humongous budget beyond the belief of anyone involved in the original show, and made it into something even more inane?

My highest expectations for this movie is that it will be complete shit scraped into a camera and played in theaters.

I've never really had an attachment to Transformers at any point in time. The trailer looked interesting, but that's the point of them right? I'm sure it will be a somewhat average, high budget action movie. I'll redbox it sometime.

You know what? (i just watched the trailer)

I probably wont mind at all. Cus honestly that looks kinda cool as i have no attachments to the transformers.

Honestly it'll probably be the best transformers movie because it seems marky mark replaces shia labouf and he was BY FAR the worst part of the other movies (well aside from those ghetto bots from the 2nd one)

Why does he need a sword? He has guns and he's riding a gigantic robotic T-Rex. What extra advantage would a sword possibly provide?!

I'm pissed! After the first 3 movies that totally did justice to the source material, Bay is finally taking a dump on my childhood! /endsarcasm

Cmon. Seriously. Shia Labeef has been replaced by Marky Mark and now there's robot dinosaurs. If you don't see this as anything but a step up from the previous train wrecks you are beyond help.

I think this is heading the exact way it needs to go. It has to be crazy enough that even Michael Bay won't take it seriously.

I demand they treat the source material of robots in disguise that turn into cars, tape decks and some German gun seriously and with the logic it inherently contains!

That gif is pretty hilarious / awesome looking, I'm only bothered by the fact that the robot dinosaur appears to snort some liquid out of it's nostrils... do robots really need functioning nostrils?

I'm confused how you guys can hate on the Transformers movies so much and still like The Avengers movie. They're of the same quality. You just don't want to admit it.

That quality is: bad


One more thing: the very idea that a robot riding a robot dinosaur could be anything other than good is monstrous and cruel and this thread should be locked for it. I know I'm taking a brave stance claiming to like something from the Transformers movies on Giant Bomb, but robots riding robotic dinosaurs are awesome, and you know it.

You're right. The Avengers needed more Tobey Maguire and Hugh Jackman.

The first three Transformers movies are some of my favorite popcorn flicks. You pseudo intellectual hipsters go ahead and shit on Bay all you want, but his movies continue to be some of the biggest grossing movies of all time. Entertaining as hell, and anyone who pretends that they won't watch it will probably watch it anyways.

Both are non stop special effects movies, sure. But one is written by Joss Whedon, a fantastic script writer, and the other has the worst script writing known to man.

I'd much prefer to see Grimlock Surfing on top of Optimus' Semi-Trailer. That would be a movie.

Yeah well it seems appropriate for what Michael Bay has done to the fiction.

It's just to give him the edge over Megatron.

After watching the trailer a few times, seemed to me like Michael Bay's interpretation of Swoop is a two headed pterodactyl? Or am I going insane? Anyhow, I'm pretty interested to see where this all leads to. After the 2nd and 3rd movie (loved the 1st one) , it can't possibly get any worse....right?

Considering I haven't been interested in a Transformers movie since the first one, and seeing Grimlock in the trailer has actually made me interested in watching this, I'd say it is a good thing.

Also one is shot so that you can actually see what action is taking place, where it is taking place, and who is involved. The other is up close shots of terribly designed robots that are indistinguishable and never gives a sense of place so have no way to follow any of the action. But Bay makes the stuff blow up real good!

My initial reaction was of disgust at the thought of another Transformers movie. Then after thinking about the Prime/Grimlock segment of the trailer, I thought sure, why the fuck not? Make this movie as batshit insane as you can.

Old school Transformers are stupid. New movie Transformers are stupid. And it's all super fun. Optimus Prime should ABSOLUTELY ride a robot dino.

All I am saying is that I have never been able to make it through an episode of buffy. The only show of his that I have like is firefly. They are both bad movies and there is no point in arguing which one is less bad.

At least I can tell where the dinosaur ends and Optimus Prime begins. The robot designs in these movies have been godawful.

How can I classify it as a good thing when Michael Bay's Transformers movies are nothing but bad? To call it a good thing would be like finding a tiny spec of gold in that pile of Triceratops shit from Jurassic Park.

Comparing The Avengers to the Transformers films is silly. If you want to say you don't like either film franchise, that works. But one was praised by critics while the other was shit on by critics for a reason.

@truthtellah: I've only seen the first Transformers movie (hated it) but this looks pretty cool.

I don't think they could let Grimlock be Grimlock in a movie like this,

Of course there's no point in arguing. Typically, people only argue about things when an actual argument can be made. Here, there's no question.

So, there's no Shia LaBeouf or Megan Fox, Mark Wahlberg is gonna tell Megatron to say hi to his mother for him, Optimus Prime is riding a metal dinosaur and you people are complaining??

I'm still on Giant Bomb, right? The home of tasteful appreciation for all things super-dumb?

This is pretty much how I'm looking at it. The first three weren't great but this one has Marky Mark and dinobots?? I'm going into it with an open mind, expecting the dumbest possible shit and I'm hoping to enjoy it. Of course there's a probably chance they'll fuck it up but it has potential.

it took them 8 years to make this decision...... I guess it's progress?

On a side note.... am I crazy? or.... do the colors pop more in this trailer? Like these are well established shots? I had an old roomate who worked on a Transformer game and he was telling me how simple it is to make easy shots in that but then somehow the movies get it all wrong. Did they somehow get better? Kinda find that hard to believe 8 years later. perfection.
