Transformers the Movie

Postby JTWood » Thu Jul 13, 2006 9:20 pm

I could have sworn that I posted a blurb on this last year, but I can't find the post to save my life. So, here's a new thread.

I know many of you guys were down on the idea that Bay was doing this and that it would be like LotR with the mix of people and cgi, but this quicky preview doesn't look too cheesy.

Let me put it this way: That clip doesn't make me think less of the movie's prospects.

I went to the movies a couple of days ago to see Pirates of the Caribbean and I was confused with the trailer. It looked like some Alien/Apollo 13 type of movie.

Eh, I don't know about this one. :-o

It doesn't look cheesy because they really didn't show anything.

Also, am I seeing that right? July of NEXT YEAR? 8-o Marketing for movies is nuts now! A whole year of marketing is amazing to me.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's nothing. Go read the story about the guys who marketed The Blair Witch Project. Now that's amazing!

Wow, this is news to me. Transformers has suddenly gotten more of my attention over Snakes on a Plane. ;-D

Lame cast that includes Bernie Mac, Tyrese, and Tad Hamilton from "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton." Only solid people are Voight and Turturro.

The worst part....the director is Michael Bay.

Cast? Who cares, it's about robots dude, not people.

I must admit though, I'm curious as to why the transformers were on Mars...that's not the way it happened.

I'm not crazy about the cast either, but I loved the Transformers when I was a kid, so I'll probably check it out.

Seriously, who cares if it's Michael Bay? Transformers is about blowing stuff up, and I seriously doubt Bay has issues with that.

Unless the writers put in a cheesy robot-love story. :-o
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
