Transformers Movie
 
Flop or hit?

I admit, I'm excited to see this movie. I grew up on those toys and I wonder if it will be any good.

I'll give it a chance, but it has HUGE shoes to fill after the animated movie.

:lmao: I saw that one

I'm dead serious when I say how good the animated movie was - at least to a kid that grew up playing with the toys. To an 8 year old - Unicron was scary enough, but then having Prime die...heros aren't supposed to die and his death scene was gut wrenching. Stupid Hot Rod!!! :mad: :mad:

I think it will make a lot of money, be very cool, but also kinda suck at the same time.

I think it'll make a lot of money, at least 150 mil, maybe 200.

The only thing that kills me about this movie is that it's directed by Michael Bay, the master of oversaturated, stylized, blue/yellow action messes.

The fact that Steven Spielberg is involved really interests me, he usually produces very good material. Plus, Shia Labeouf (sp?) is a capable actor to carry this movie, I really think he can do it.

Oh, and Hugo Weaving is Megatron. That's fucking badass.

It will look good and make a mint, but I'm betting the story line runs about as deep the drop of coke I just spilled on my desk.

Lancemc 06-11-2007 10:40 PM

How deep could the story possibly be to begin with? Giant alien robots come to earth from outer space to beat the shit out of each other. That's about it.


...and I'm all in.

I think I may have been too old to get the whole Transformers thing when they came out ... plus, I was a little girl, not a little boy.

So. It's about ... things that ... turn into other things?

Um. Sounds like a killer plot! :wink:

In all seriousness, though, I confess to being a bit baffled about why this movie is so anticipated. Or why it's being made.

Is it like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kind of thing? Was Transformers a comic book or something before they were toys? Or is it just a movie based on toys?

The concept of toys that turn into other toys is fascinating to little kids, little boys in particular. And while that concept may not be so fascinating anymore those little kids are grown up, it still holds a huge nostalgia factor. I suspect that a large percentage of the people that go to the Transformers movie will be going in an attempt to relive their childhood.

But they really were cool toys. A truck that turned in a walking fighting machine.....a gun that turned into a robot.....etc.

I confess to even loving the line of transformers that McDonalds put in their happy meals when I was a kid....french fries/cheeseburgers/big macs/a soda cup/a mcnuggets box/a mcpancakes box/an ice cream cone, that all turned into different sorts of dinosaurs....badass.

:nerd:

I buy that very logical explanation. Thank you, namkcuR.

But by the same token, I don't know that I'd be up for seeing a live-action movie about Barbies. :wink:

catlhere 06-11-2007 11:06 PM

- Michael Bay directing
- Tyrese acting
- Even Stevens the main character
- Optimus Prime with flame body-paint

*facepalm* I'll pass

I don't know. I think that could have the potential to be a tremendous porno flick.

:reject:

:wink:

Lancemc 06-11-2007 11:54 PM

The reason I want to see it is because it's a huge-budget movie about giant robots destroying shit. Pure entertainment. I couldn't think up a better blockbuster concept. Just mindless action with huge budgets. THATS what summer movies are about. That and comedies. I've seen Knocked Up, now it's time to see Transformers.

Plus, Starscream is friggen awwweeeessssooooooommmmmeeeeeee!!!!lolololololwwwowoooooooooooottt.
