Transformers 4

With his Transformers 4 gearing up to shoot in May, Michael Bay spoke with Forbes about what fans can expect to see on the big screen in the summer of 2014.

"We’re going to start off smaller," says Bay. "There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise, we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there. We start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast."

Among the new cast are Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor, the former of whom also stars in Bay's next, Pain & Gain, which hits theaters April 26.

"Mark is really excited about it and it’s a great redesign," Bay continues. "I said that 3 was going to be my last one. Paramount was letting me do 'Pain & Gain' and the 'Transformers' ride was opening at Universal and it was bittersweet to think of passing it off. I wanted to set it up on a really sure footing and to bring someone else in on that, it would have been overwhelming."

I did not know Michael Bay was going to make another transformers. This is a series I would like to see rebooted and have nothing to do with Michael Bay. -_-

It was rumored he planned on doing another after 3 but nothing was concrete until now.

 

Again this man is going to continue to destroy my childhood. The first one was ok (wasn't happy with a lot of what he did but it turned out alright). the second one sucked (the only good part was Optimus's pimp ass fight before his death), and the third was outright horrible (I want that 154 minutes of my life back Bay).

How did he get it so wrong.

Seriously was he trying to win a teen choice award....

Hes not finished ruining everyone's childhood just yet. He is doing Transformers 4 because the script for the new TMNT movie he is going to do was rejected and pushed that movie into 2014 for production. So Bay must have figured since he had some free time he would continue destroying our fond child hood memories of transformers before he moves on to destroy TMNT.

Expect a crap load of robot foot clan ninjas that explode when defeated. And I wouldn't be surprised if the movie will focus on Casey Jones and April with Ninja Turtles showing up now and then for a fight scene.

Well there goes my childhood. TMNT, really? Why would anyone in their right mind give this man the keys to directing a movie for such an iconic franchise? This just goes to prove nobody in Hollywood knows what they're doing. /sigh

The only Michael Bay movies I can say that I really have ever liked was The Rock and The Island. He should sick to original content, and movies with The followed by a noun.

Those were good. I also liked Armageddon.

Michael Bay - Oh yeah, I'm making the new one and scrapping the tech or ideas I swore by on the first 3, just to appease the audience, don't let me fool you ... oh wait, you won't care anyway cos you'll watch it regardless.

I don't know if thats a bad thing that there would be more animal based robots.... They already had Scorponok & Ravage.... There is also a point to be made that since those 2 didn't have speaking rolls that the Dinobots in Michael Bays bad movies won't either.

 

Still I prefer Beast Wars version of Dinobot.

Beast Wars was good and I liked Dinobot in it. :nod:

 

I bet there will be a robot looking raptor and it will terrorize the humans because it'll be about the same size as a human.. that way there are more human close ups. But I highly doubt any of the dinobots will look like actual living dinosaurs.. even though they had a human transformer in the second movie.

Our problem is that we expect too much from these movies. We're adults who watch adult cartoons (most cartoons although vastly watched by children, have a lot of adult themes) and they're made for children in an exagerated commercial style. I never expect anything, although sometimes it's just a disappointment to see these amazing series be destroyed.

I mostly don't like Shia Labeouf and how the movies focus so much on humans.. but at the same time, the more I think about the old cartoon, I don't see how they could make a movie true to the original cartoon.. It'd be way too cheesy.

I think its hilarious that Perceptor, transforms to see the far off distance object with his microscope.. lmao. the ships looks smaller in the distance than if he'd have just stood there and stared at them. XD

I don't remember myself ever watching the original Transformers (much). But I did rewatch Beast Machines & realized that Beast Machines suffered for a similar reason Michael Bays Transformers did; crap transformations. And while Michael Bay's Transformers have the annoyance of humans it at least didn't have miraculous plot turns based purely on Optimus Primal's Will Power.

 

Oh well.... at least Beast Machines had Jet Storm.

What's wrong with cheesy? I love that aspect of the original Transformers, it's why I have such found memories of it as a kid (memories that Micheal Bay bent over and raped with his crappy movies).

Nothing wrong with cheesy... unless we're talking about TMNT 3:

With Transformers tho.. they could have at least kept the plot of the original series and then upgraded the quality with CG.. but aside from the massive human cast in Transformers, I didn't even care for the transformations in the Michael Bay movies. The original transformations in the cartoon were very similar to the toys and that was awesome.. but Michael Bay's transformations are trillions of small parts that fly all over the place that turn a car into a robot.

I really liked the 1st. I think they did a good job with teh transformations... but the 2nd one when they screwed over Devastator, killed Barricade in the first 5-10 minutes, and added those ghetto bots.... it was too much. Then the 3rd one, they made Shockwave some insignificant semi-cameo decepticon.

      Tuesday my favorite festival of all time for GW2 comes back. I'm more hyped to play than I have been in a very long time. I was a n00b when this festival first debuted, and I'm sure a lot of nostalgia boosts it's memory for me, but even then, I remember feeling that Halloween and Wintersday paled in comparison. When the year spun back around and it didn't come back I was disappointed. Labyrinthine Cliffs is going to be much easier to traverse without the need of the aspect crystals, but the Dolyak Race should still be funny. I'm looking forward to the additions they've made, and I'm ready to grind out Boss Blitz. I hope they've scaled up the bosses properly and made the rewards worth grinding so it doesn't become a ghost town if people go back to Istan.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.
