We're discussing the possibility that this movie may or may not be good. It's the thought process and theory of the movie experience that we're talking about.

I got a few minutes so I'll start.

I think its going to suck.

I just think they have redone this to such an extent, compared to what they originally said they'd stick to.

I've read that Bumblebee isnt just a camaro BUT he can only talk through the radio and through songs at that.....LAME.

For example I can imagine something like this:

Kid: "Bumblebee we are doomed! What do we do!"

Bumblebee: <radio static then the song blurts out> "JUST BEAT IT! BEAT IT! BEAT IT! BEAT IT! No one wants to BEAT IT! BEAT IT!"

They first said they would do a faithful G1 iteration or at least a Peter Jackson type deal where he changes somethings but not everything basically.

Oh, we got one thing right....Peter Cullen's voice....which is good but...not enough to save this from being just a Big robot movie with Transformers name slapped on it.

Granted, I understand they also wanted to make it realistic so thats cool, BUT from what I've seen they've totally gone another way.

The designs are 50/50 with me. Some seem cool, but the Cybertron iterations look like some GOBOT inspired stuff.

I know there have been many changes over the course of this series, but they are due to just wanting to sell more toys really, and not because change is good philosophy. But business is business so I can understand that. Maybe I am just getting old and refuse to look past G1 :goof:

Well, at least there's a thread on this. Personally, I'm not too concerned about how similar it is to the original. What I do care about it how "realistic" the bots are and how "plausible" the story is. Stuff like whether the size of the transformers corresponds to how tall/large they'd actually be if you built them is the kind of stuff I look for.

Oh, and whether they give corny reasons for why the robots transform into familiar vehicles/machines is something I'd care about.

Anyway, Bay is great at action sequences, but I worry a bit since I haven't liked his previous movies too much. So, I'm hoping Spielberg being behind it will do the trick. Well, we'll see (but they better not ruin those good memories I have from childhood!!!!)

I will give it that.

The transforming sequences do look pretty cool.

I am not completely down on everything, even though it might seem that way.

I was just hoping it was a closer re-imagining of the original series since that is what I watched as a kid.

I never really cared to see the other series they made like Beastwars and all that mess. Besides, by the time they changed to different series' and whatnot I was too much into football and video games at that point to pay attention.

So in my mind, Transformers is G1.

Other than that, I am sure this could be a decent flick if they dont make it too hammy. Which unfortunately thats why I think it'll suck because, although I like popcorn action movies, from what I've seen and heard so far somethings are just lame.

We shall see.

Well, I can tell you I've never had so much anxiety about a movie!!! I mean even if I'm willing to let them create new characters and other stuff you might be against, there is just so much room for messing this thing up!

By the way, on the note of keeping it true to G1, what would you do with Megatron? I think transforming into a hand-held gun (think of how large that "hand-held" gun would become - that's by the way one thing I never did like about G1 - it was physically impossible for Megatron to become a hand-held gun) is problematic.

By the way, one change I do like is with Starscream. Being an F-22 is simply cooler, stealthier, and more fearsome than an F-15. One change I probably wouldn't have made is Ratchet, though he's not that bad in his new form.

Oh, and one group of autobots I wish they would include in the 2nd film of the series (apparently, there will be 3 films) are the Dinobots!

Well, I am thinking along the lines of say...T2...

Remember when the Terminator (Arnold) was asked by John C. if he (the Liquid Metal Terminator) can turn into...I think a bomb...(forgot now what it was for certain) and the Terminator (Arnold) replies something like "No, he can't form complex things with moving parts, but he can form things like Knives and stabbing weapons."

So....I believe that the concept of Transformers is really SCI-FI to begin with...so if you go the imaginatative route like Cameron did with T2 and the liquid metal Terminator concept I am sure you could sit down and form a think tank of sorts and come up with a plausible explanation.

Remember that Megatron could transform into a gun that was to scale with both a Human AND a Transformer, as in some episodes he was held by Starscream.

As far as Starscream being an F-22, I actually dont have a problem with that since he's still a jet and I dont have a problem with the Bumblebee other than the lame way hes been rumored to communicate and the fact that they choose a camaro over a smaller car like a mini or something since VW didnt want to lend the Bug look (why? they did it back in the day I dont get it...itd be advertising for their cars :confused: ).

What Ive seen around rumor sites is that if theres another movie my fav. one, Soundwave, will be anything but a sound device which I know the newer cartoons have changed that already since my son has a Soundwave thats a jet or a bomber or something :rolleyes: and the Laserbeak it came with is a bomb I think...its not a cassette player thats for sure.

Within the realm of the TF universe, it is completely possible to shrink in size during transformation. Certain characters have it like written into thier spark, and that allows them to do certain things. I forget the exact term used to describe the science behind the shrinking into the gun, but I'm sure I could find it if need be. Soundwave was the same way as a walkman, Blaster as a boombox(and all thier cassettes), and Perceptor as a microscope.

Well, I guess one could imagine a science of the future that could do that.

However, there's one thing they cannot change, even with a change in size: weight. So, if there ever was a time when a human held Soundwave (I think there was right?) then that would go beyond what one could do.

Anyway, the point is IF they allow the size to change, the reason has to be plausible. TheMageGandalf talked about a possible change of state, so going through a liquid temporary state. That might work. Or one could simply assume the robots are capable of transforming at a microscopic level - so instead of large parts changing positions, lots of smaller microscopic parts do. This way, one could argue the larger bot is mostly empty space (hollow inside), allowing for a change of shape and size.

Of course, then the question becomes IF they could do something like that (either liquid or microscopic transformation), why can they only transform into one type of vehicle or so? In principle, each such bot could transform into anything if that's the case.

Well, like I said, I just want it to be plausible.

Currently I will only address the bolded. There are numerous transformers that can change into more than only one alternate mode aside from thier robot mode: Astrotrain, Omega Supreme, Sixshot, Metroplex, and Blitzwing just to name a few. Then you have all the combiners: Airialbots, Constructicons, Predacons, Protectobots, etc, etc. And all the transformers that have alternate modes, can change thier alternate mode. Just most of them only be one thing at a time. For example you think Bumblebee's alternate mode was a VW bug on Cybertron? No. They had to scan surrounding areas to get thier alternate mode. And when addresssing the issue of thier alternade modes on cybertron, I will have to say the historical origons of the transformers themselves are somewhat vague, but they were origonally built to be slaves of another race(the race name eludes me at the moment, but they make an appearance in G1 season 3 I believe).

Another issue with plausibility. These are alien life forms, not exactly robots. It's not like they were built with human technology. They come from a far more technologically advanced society, unlike anything the Earth had ever seen. Perhaps, they had made certain scientific discoveries that allow them to change size and weight, while we simply aren't even close to scratching the surface on such ideas. I mean, after all their spaceships could traverse entire galaxies, while ours have difficulty getting anywhere past the moon. The had 'stargates' (not the right term), but they could transport themselves from Cybertron to earth without the use of a ship or stasus pod. It had even been inferred that many of the first technological advances by very early humans may had been influenced by transformers also.

Now, with all that being said, I don't think there was any way (even in a 3 hour movie) for them to be able to explain all the intricacies of Cybertronian society or the scientific reasoning behind certain things. The audience would just have to accept them as being plausible in the TF universe, because they are. And that is why I'm prefectly fine with some things being changed from G1. There was no way to make this mainstream and stay true to G1. That was just not possible. But what they could do is keep the personalities of the characters the same, as well as thier demeanoar, and retain the same conflicts and ideals between factions. And it looks liek they've done that for the most part.

Yeah, true, but the point is they should be able to transform into ANY other form within the limits of material available. So, it wouldn't make sense that they could only transform into a few other things. It would literally be more like T2.

Well, I'm not complaining, just throwing stuff out there.



Another issue with plausibility. These are alien life forms, not exactly robots. It's not like they were built with human technology. They come from a far more technologically advanced society, unlike anything the Earth had ever seen. Perhaps, they had made certain scientific discoveries that allow them to change size and weight, while we simply aren't even close to scratching the surface on such ideas.

The had 'stargates' (not the right term), but they could transport themselves from Cybertron to earth without the use of a ship or stasus pod. It had even been inferred that many of the first technological advances by very early humans may had been influenced by transformers also.

It doesn't really matter if they're alien life forms. They still operate in the same universe. So, the same laws of physics apply. Thus, IF they had a way to change their weight, it would have to be through a device that could emit gravitons and thus cancel the effects of gravity.

OK, that's possible, but then the powers of these bots would be FAR greater than what we saw. There is simply no reason to have thrusters to fly for example.

So, within reasonable technological limits (those that still allow for most of the properties we saw), you can possibly allow transformation on a microscopic scale (we don't have such technology today of course) or transition through different states of matter (such as liquid), but it seems that taking it this far (or further as with a graviton emitter) would make the transformers as we saw them in the cartoon way too outdated technology-wise.

So, given what we saw, I don't really see how Megatron for example could have changed size (remember, this isn't too serious a question for me, just something to point out because I care about the plausibility issue).



Now, with all that being said, I don't think there was any way (even in a 3 hour movie) for them to be able to explain all the intricacies of Cybertronian society or the scientific reasoning behind certain things.

But what they could do is keep the personalities of the characters the same, as well as thier demeanoar, and retain the same conflicts and ideals between factions.

I certainly hope they keep the personalities. Megatron versus Starscream was classic.

I found this great site containing like all information about Transformers ever(at first glance, i didn't browse too much). But here is the segment I found as to explain how some transformers could change size.

“Explanations
Although size-changing has been evident in Transformers from the very beginning, the original animated series and comic books never address the topic, and it was regarded as simply being the way of things. Fandom debate on the topic has seemingly inspired later fiction to offer varying explanations on how it functions.
[edit]
Dreamwave
Dreamwave offered two explanations for size-changing within its continuity.
The first, to explain enlarging, was parts compression – the notion that the Transformers in question, such as Astrotrain and Broadside, had many dense layers of armor in robot mode, which then slid out, expanding to create a much larger, but less-strongly-armored vehicle mode.
The second explanation, to justify shrinking, was mass conversion. This method put it that Transformers like Soundwave were genetically endowed with the ability to transform not simply their bodies, but their entire molecular structure. This ability, not under their conscious control, only activates when they transform, shifting their atoms according to a pre-determined schematic.
[edit]
IDW
IDW's Escalation sees Megatron employ a mass-displacement sequence, physically discarding a portion of his bodily mass to allow himself to shrink to a human-scaled pistol of appropriate weight and density. What with E equalling mc², the loss of this amount of mass (shunted to an undisclosed location in space and time) results in a volatile energy discharge, requiring bystanders to step away lest they be injured by the forces released.
Due to the energy shortage (and seeming near-total depletion of Transformers' primary fuel source, Energon) caused by their war, mass displacement hasn't been commonplace for a very long time. Since it requires a huge amount of energy, the technology had practically vanished until the discovery of Ore-13 on Earth.
[edit]
Fandom explanations
The issue of shrinking and enlarging was, in the early days of the online Transformers fandom, a frequently debated subject. The Transformers were clearly displacing their mass, to allow their shrunken forms to be operable – so where was that mass going? The postulated answer to his question was subspace, the void of sub-dimensional space between realities.
This explanation also served as an answer to the top Transformers question of all time ever – “Where does Optimus Prime’s trailer go when he transforms?” The answer? Subspace. Furthermore, in a few sparse instances throughout the American animated series, and with alarming frequency in the Japanese shows, Transformers’ weapons can also be seen appearing and vanishing in a flash of energy. Where are they going? Subspace. You get the idea, folks.”

http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Size_changing

I underlined the mass conversion I was referring to earlier, how it was written into thier subatomic structure and stuff.

I don't know if it has already been mentioned but Hugo Weaving(Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, V for Vendetta) will be the voice of Megatron. Also Megatron(the FH member) I found you an early bday present, only problem is I'll have to go to Japan to get it...:D

"The release of Transformers the movie is still over 2 months away, however the anticipated release can derive some ease with the pre-releases of various licensed memorabilia. Nike have gone and used the silhouette of the Nike Free 7.0 and done quite the mash up with Megatron and Convoy to create a pair of transforming sneakers. The execution is turned out quite well and would satisfy both Nike/Shoe and Transformer collectors out there. They have been released in Japan and will retail for 2,625 Yen."

The writers said they don't want to write a sequel just for the sake of making more(ie just to capitalize on the money making). They are too big a fans of Transformers for that they said. If they make a sequel, they want to make it worthwhile.

I've already read the book based on the movie. I think it will be AWESOME to the casual viewer. However, to the hardcore Transformer fans that want EVERYTHING to be 100% authentic to the history of the "story" it may be a bit of a disappointment.

A guy I know in New Zealand got to see it, and he was a big TF fan growing up, and he said the movie was awesome. He said any fan should be very happy with the movie. It's not perfect he said, but he thought it was really done well. Done about as good as one could expect anyways.

Again, both bad reviews I have read I wouldn't think are that good of articles to begin with(as far as quality of writing). Beyond that, they both seem to be on a relatively high horse as to what kind of movie they like to see. I think it should have like a breakdown of the type of movie the movie critic looks for when reviewing, so I can have a better understanding of where they are coming from. I mean not every movie is made with the intention of pulling home Oscars.

It'd also be nice if some fo the reviews looked at the mythology of the series or the hystory of characters involved rather than only metnioning that it was a toy line or 80's cartoon(which they seem to think only relates to children). And while this is sort of a re-telling or re-introduction of Transformers, many of the things from the origonal series have carried over. But apparently that provides little depth for these reviewers to look into.

God forbid they have to do some work for their article outside of getting to see a blockbuster movie before its release.

For one, I wouldn't have peppered it with corny one-liners and not waited 75% of the movie to get things moving. granted I don't know how much of that is Bay, as I don't know if he wrote the screenplay, but did he also direct the actors to ham up every corny line to draw even more attention to it, because they did!

Which isn't to say I have a short attention span or anything, but Michael Bay, outside of his nicely shot action scenes, can do very little else right.

I too saw it last night, and I enjoyed it. I went in knowing that it wasn't gonna be as good as it could have been since there was going to be involvement with humans, but overall it was a good movie. I fifgured that they'd have to setup some human storylines, and how they come to know the Transformers and all, so I was right about that.

I did find myself growing anxious for a while waiting for some action to take place, but in the end it was definitely worth the wait. I didn't mind the one liners, I even laughed at alot of the silly jokes, but as a true Transformers I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I found myslef getting chills at moments and looked over at my wife who caught me smiling from ear to ear. :evil:

I couldnt keep track at the end, I dont know if he escaped or died. On the website it does say that Starscream "He serves Megatron, but longs to fill his shoes." Maybe for a sequal??? Then again, I am always wrong and he could have died. I sat closer to the screen than I wanted and had trouble panning the screen.

Even after reading the book and knowing exactly what was gonna happen, seeing it on screen was awesome. Some amazing special effects and great action scenes. Was there a few cheesy, over dramatic lines? Sure, but overall it was a great action movie.

:pray:ing for a sequel!

It wasn't anything big.

1. The Lack of Devastator(who I thought was gonna be called Brawl in the movie.
2. Said Megatron had been at the Hoover dam since 1934, but it was the 1969 in the book when he was being moved to Nevada.
3. Said they learned Earth's languages from WWW, but they figured out while interfacing with Ghost One.
4. I had thought they said in the movie that they knew the Allspark was on Earth, but they had only known Megatron was there in Ghosts of Yesterday(I didn't read the movie novelization, so maybe they covered that there).

That's all off the top of my head right now.

Pretty good summer movie. Typical Bay movie, it was an assault on my senses. Hearing some of the dialogue brought be back to my childhood.

"Autobots, roll out!"

"One shall stand, and one shall fall"

Ahhh, its like its 1986 all over again.

and yes, Megan Fox and the blonde Australian chick (whose part was useless in the movie) are HOT!! Fox could melt steel with those electric blue eyes of hers.

Everyone runs out onto the roof just in time to see an large explosion off in the distance. Everyone then runs down the stairs out into the street where pieces of builings and such are being flung down the street by something. The last thing that gets thrown before the end of the trailer is the head of the Statue of Liberty. It was ripped off and winged down the street. The movie was produced by JJ Abrams (of Alias and Lost fame). The trailer didn't have a title, just the release date of 1/08/08.

The cube wasn't even called the Allspark in the book.

Seriously, if Devastator would have been in Ghosts of Yesterday the Autobots never would have made it to Earth.

I'm still not sure how Bumblebee was able to speak at the end of the movie either. I know Ratchet did something when they all first got introduced, but Bumbleee was still using the radio until the very end.

From Wikipedia:
In reference to his death in the movie: However, a new released Jazz toy from Hasbro and Target with the G1 colors, has a description on Jazz's possible future: "During the long process of being rebuilt by AUTOBOT RATCHET, there was a lot of time to think. AUTOBOT JAZZ digs his Earth vehicle form, but the silver paint job had always left something to be desired. It got scratched too easily, for one thing, and dust stuck to it like cyberflies on old oil. Also, it wasn't nearly eye-catching enough. Just because he's supposed to be in disguise doesn't mean he can't be noticed.

Sweet! Although, I'm pretty sure there hasn't even been a screenplay written for the sequel yet. There was a special on the TVGuide the other day that said several of the actors had multiple movie clauses in their contracts but the writers and directors were waiting to see how well it went.

I'd be really interested to see how they give him his spark back, unless thats what they use that piece of the cube that Optimus pulled out of Megatron. Speaking of, I'm sure we haven't seen that last of him either. Starscream will probably bring reinforcements to go down and get him. :D

Check out http://sectorseven.org

The login is codeblack

It's a cool Transformers site for the fans. It's a simulation of a PC at Sector7 you hacked into.

For some real goodies, open the RED drive on the left (third one down I think). This videos rock. You can see Grimlock in the 1st one.

The Grimlock vid has been around for awhile, so has the site. Alot of "fanboys" were all riled up when rumors came out that Grimlock may possibly be in the flick...

Constructicons would definately be cool but what would they call Devastator? Bay shouldve stuck with Brawl for the tank.
Dinobots? That would be wicked..I guess once they get here they would have to land in a "museum" to acquire their earth forms.

Are an archeological dig site. But even then the audience would have to not realize that many of the dinobots came from different eras. All I know, is if they have Grimlock in dino form, they better have Slag.

In the War Within, Grimlock was in it and I think he was a type of Cybertronian tank, but he had the same personality. I really had no problem with him not being a dinosaur(or even being alive that long ago on Cybertron for that matter, though that is only different from the cartoon). So it isn't even as big a deal to me that he becomes a T-rex(no way he blends in if he does), so long as his personality is the same.

If any of you have a Digital Theater in your area, go NOW! I saw it in digital and the picture quality was absolutely amazing. It's just so much brighter and clearer than film.

They also have said there might be an aircraft carrier bot as well. If it is a decepticon, it might as well be Tidal Wave to Flattop.

I just got back from it...I really enjoyed it, my girlfriend LOVED it, she cried 3 times, LOL!

Prime was too cool. It took me a little bit to get over the fact he was not a "flatface" rig but he was perfect IMO.

The gripes I had were major but the film was still very entertaining. I have not read this whole thread so this has probably been said but am I the only one who thought the "Decepticons" seemed like an afterthought? The Autobots were great. They all had SOME personality and character. The Decepticons seemed to be more scenery then anything else in my opinion. Megatron is a great villian but I think they screwed it up with him.

While the Autobots had SOME character I don't think any of the Transformers had nearly enough. They should have done a lot more with the characters they had to work with. In my opinion the film was far too "human" but it was a Michael Bay film in every way...and it was still good...LOL!

I think with the sequel they need to focus more on the Transformers and less on the "human" element. They need to work with the characters they have in place. If I wanted to see a cheesy love story, horrid dialogue and unrealistic combat sequences I'd rent "The Rock". I want to see the Transformers.

All that said, like I said, I really liked it but it could have been so much more in my opinion. I have HIGH hopes for the sequel.
