    Oh yeah, the dialog of the script is on point for sure. It's just the plotting is a little random.

    Transformers the movie has a lot of really interesting specific things but it might be the most poorly constructed movie I've ever watched.

    I don't believe that I've seen the live action transformers

    The first one, and only the first one, is a fun watch, especially because of Peter Cullen.

    Live action Transformers isn't close to good but it's construction is pretty straight forward and standard.

    80s Transformers begins with the big climax and kills all the character you know and then Unicron is doing.... Something? And all the main characters fap about on a trash planet making you wonder why they spliced a rejected filler episode in this movie?

    Love or hate the film, they're a gold standard for live action high budget mecha battles, and I sincerely hope whoever worked on them is going to be involved in the Gundam adaptation.

    Oh boy do I not agree with that! Those fights are incomprehensible. Keep those guys away.

    I thought the highway scene was very easy to follow. Bonecrusher tackles Prime, gets a nice energon blade through the face as reward.

    I don't know man, I always thought the Transformer fight scenes in the Bay movies looked like big jumbled weightless messes. Like, Pacific Rim felt like it nailed that stuff way better.


    (Except maybe that one fight in the Bumblebee movie with Shatter. That was great.)

    Most of them are a hot mess, but I love the first one(and Bumblebee, especially the Cybertron intro).

    It had plenty of dope action set pieces though? The desert, the freeway, the city fight, Starscream and the F-16s, etc.

    I freely admit the film is a mess, but it has fun qualities too.

    The city fight is an eyesore. The clip you posted is the best the action gets.

    I got to pick movie for movie night and I made a room full of 30 somethings watch Paddington and everyone loved it and at least one person teared up.

    So now we're watching Paddington 2 next week.

    I watched temple of doom on tv last night, and it’s Spielberg, and with a budget so I know just not anyone can do things like that to the same level, but things like the cave right before the big cart chase makes me miss the big set pieces of the 80s and early 90s.

    Just how it was all on a set, but well thought out so the set has multiple uses and the camera moves throughout the scene and it’s just stuff that you don’t get to see any movies that much anymore.

    To All A Goodnight is probably the worst horror movie I have EVER seen. It's just completely high school amateur all the way

    Including filming deep night scenes at literally 3 in the afternoon

    Transformers 3 is the only "good" one and I will die on that hill.

    Micheal Bay remembers he's good at shooting gonzo action scenes and squirrel suit drops soldiers into Chicago, and then convinces the second man to ever walk on the moon to say some real dumb expository shit to a giant CG robot.

    I loved it when I first saw it, but I don't think time has been very kind to it, especially with Optimus we'll kill them all Prime going full sociopath. I thought it was badass at the time, but I liked his heroic-but-badass depiction in 1 more.

    Yeah I loved it at the time as well but ain't no way I'm going back to watch it the full way through.

    Progressively unhinged Optimus Prime is probably my favourite thing about those movies. Just the absolute worst read on that character but taken to hilarious heights. Like they expect him to be all noble but then he is double tapping skulls from behind and keeping their faces for trophies. King shit.

    Peter Cullen sells it, but of course, Peter Cullen sells anything.

    I almost think transformers four is watchable. It just needs like forty five minutes less and no weird, it’s not rape because I have a it’s-not-rape card in my pocket. Kelsey grammar has a heap of fun and galvatron is a fun bit.

    it acted like it was the biggest thing ever and people obliged for several months and then it died quietly in a retirement home, no one came to its funeral.

    I assume, at best, Ava2ar is going to go the same way

    except there's those people who want to be Na'vi, I assume they watch a lot of Avatar

    everybody else is like "Avatar? Best thing Nickelodeon ever released."

    I "love" how the only information the trailer gives at all is that there's water in the movie, the Na'vi will become emotional and brandish weapons sometimes, and Famoly. Just... really the kind of marketing effort that stays with you and brings back Avatar fever after 200 years.

    The first avatar had a good but not amazing opening weekend at like 77m. It just…kept going, forever, with only tiny drop offs every weekend consistently for like 3 months because people wanted to see the new 3d tech. Also the new stuff that came out the next few months wasn’t much better.

    I don’t think they can capture that lightning in a bottle again.

    the 'avatar' was essentially just a Na'vi body that they dropped that dude's mind into, so I guess he could have a kid.

    I like that there's a feral human living with them, who apparently still needs the mask to breathe, which is a bummer.
