News that Bay won't be on TF5: Hurrah! Slight hope for improvement!

News that Peter Cullen thinks Bay is amazing: bitter disappointment. I thought better of you Mr. Cullen.

Peter Cullen had said he felt he was given more of a chance to "act" in AOE and really flex his voice acting so Im not surprised. He was probably after 30 years glad to see Prime be a lot tougher. I know I was.

The trailer will make it look really good with a real dark, realistic doomsday/alien invasion feel to it. When you get to see the film however it will be a letdown aside from the odd fight/scene. The TFs will be portrayed as not much of a threat to the all mighty US military despite the fact that TFs should be thousands of years ahead of us. A new (to the movie-verse) character will feature heavily in the promotion, getting everyone excited but have a very minor role or only appear in the last 10 minutes. Oh and everyone will complain about the lack of coherent plot, silly 'fart joke' type humour, complete reliance on special effects/explosions and lack of any real characterisation for the TFs.

Or maybe these speculations aren't baseless!

I just hope we get a director who respects the franchise. Gives us Transformers that look like Transformers, and doesn't solely focus on the humans.

I really would love to see a reboot using early IDW as the template.

Movie 1:

Open with SL: Shockwave.

Then combine Infiltration and Stormbringer.

Then post credits with SL: Nightbeat.

Speak for yourself. I only saw AoE a few weeks ago because it was loaned to me. Same with DotM.

It's going to take MAJOR changes for me to pay for that trash again.

It's not to the taste of anyone with a functioning critical brain.

I didn't pay to see AoE in the cinema, and it will take some seriously persuasive reviews to turn me around on the next one. I ended up idly watching it one afternoon on my laptop in a library while I had a transport layover of sorts, and the entire way through I was on Steam chatting to one of my friends just basically going, "OH GOD IT'S SO BAD". I felt like I needed to finish it, as a completionist, but sacred feth, it was a bloody awful movie. I don't think it was as offensively awful as RotF, but it was quite possibly worse than DotM- longer, more boring and with a great degree of contempt for its audience. These things aren't artistic creations anymore, they're marketing tools wearing the skin of a movie.
