@therealGoku If Hollywood can make Tom Cruise look like a regular 6 foot tall person, I'm sure you can see how what you say is not a real concern

@mbrandon11 I think it's a funny picture, that you would throw out my words over what my avatar is... is a little off base wouldn't you say?

I have to agree

There is nothing wrong with freedom of speech, I'm simply asking that we try to be better than most of the vile that is on the rest of the internet.

I'm not stopping anyone from practicing their right to free speech. I don't have that kind of power, nor do I want it. Is it wrong for me to ask my fellow movie lovers to ...I don't know ... discuss this stuff objectively. Just makes for a better environment IMO, but I could be wrong.

All the hate is pointless until we see the movie and if we see it and it sucks, then the talk is acceptable, right now it's just kind of pathetic.

Seriously, he's a good actor, and no he's not asian, but I doubt we will see Splinter as a human in this movie, not to mention the guy being short is to the possible strength of the casting... we have yet to see what he will look like after make up and effects are done... and then it's a matter of the writing and acting being on point.

Can we please act like grown ups? Leave the silliness to the IGN forums
@undeadslayer4 lol I can dream though >_<
So he's one of the villains then? cool

ZOMG
For this character I can see it, there's already enough character and story possibility with the world his character inhabits, something more along the lines of international manhunt type action movies, ala Born Franchise but with the hunter as the good guy and him being that, I could like that, they would need a compelling villain though
I had actually not heard of her before this, and had to look up her work... she does not have anything really that should warrant this kind of behavior in any capacity... it's so odd
People who do this still exist?

seems interesting enough.... cliche? maybe, but everything has been done before at this point
You know I just read this article and the first thing I thought was, I think the problem with this franchise is they think of it as this action adventure franchise... I think what was great about one was the scares... this entire franchise might be better as a predator type flick.

just my thoughts

I've seent he original animated movie, and I've even gone back and tried to watch it recently and as a transformers fan, I find it unwatchable. It doesn't stand the test of time. It's somewhere between voltron and the original G1 series in how ridiculous the plot and characters come across.

It has it's charm, but I lack the nostalgia bone that might make me enjoy it more than it deserved.

@bawnian-dexeus and @dan1, I agree a great story can be done without humans, but you're talking about a franchise that has an already bloated budget, movie after movie... 250 million dollars is no joke, and the suits are going to want actors for people to latch on to for that kind of money, I completely understand where you're coming from.... the robots are definitely humanized and have a lot of traits that are not unrelatable, but there's a distinct disconnect.... I could see it being possible if they got the writers from movies like Wall-E or Wreck it Ralph cause those achieved so much with so little human element... but that element was still there.

Also, while the whole over arching story of the original trilogy is shoddy at best, separately, the first and 3rd films are standouts IMO. On one hand I really liked one, but the lack of finished cg meant Bay used a lot of horrible camera tricks to hide it. the 2nd we can all agree was bloated garbage, and the writing or lack there of is to blame. the action was still spectacle worthy of seeing but without a decent story it made the movie total crap.

The 3rd on the other hand, with the CGi finally being where they needed it, and the 3d shooting, the use of the red camera meant Bay had to slow down his frenetic style significantly, which made for better paced, better shot scenes throughout the film. And the story... I enjoyed it, it was simple as these stories always are... the decepticons having a plan to do something massively evil.. the autobots fighting them, but DOTM was great for a few reasons, the exploration of the relationship between Optimus and Sentinel, the betrayal was very well done, the entire last 30 minutes of action is not only ridiculous scale wise but so well shot it's hard to be bored by it...(unlike films like Star Wars episodes 1 through 3, Indiana Jones and Red Tails) - partly the benefit of real sets and also th ebenfit of a director who knows how to shoot action.

Storywise I only had 2 major gripes with the film, one was the capture of the autobots in the final act that was never shown, as far as how it happened, and 2 was that the Sam character vows to Kill the other guy and their fight is subpar and that finish with the blow to the chest was not enough to satiate his vow to kill the guy IMO

Just some of my thoughts. I try to be objective about this franchise as with any other, but I defend it because a lot of people just like to hate on anything Bay related and to me, that's not helpful or constructive at all. I'd go into more detail but i doubt most people care about a detailed observation of the franchise.

This movie is gonna rock.
Michael Bay is a great action movie Director.
The writers though, they need new writers.

And anyone who believes a big budget movie won't have human characters in it is a little insane. Even Toy Story, Wall-E, Wreck it Ralph and Antz had humans.... the thing about writing any story is there has to be some way for those who are not just fans of watching robots fight, to connect to the plot. But those of you that are either crazy raging fanboys or too young to understand plot structure, won't get that.

Haters gonna hate

Exactly!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed.

Skyfall was a departure from the narrative set forth by the last 2...
- Addressing age in a Bond film is a big no no
- Considering Nolan mapped his batman films after Bond Films, trying to Ape TDK made for mixed results.
- Javier Baderms 'Silva' was a bad joker rip off(complete with over complicated plot that includes being caught and escaping)
- Too much exposition, not enough action and too long.
- Pacing was awful.
- Could be really boring at worst. And just kind of okay at best.

I was hoping he would not return.

I do wish they could get Tomas Alfredson to direct one of these. 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' is easily the best spy film I have ever seen, in my humble opinion. And it was a slow burn thriller.

It's definitely another Bourne Franchise inspired flick... I'm not expecting any surprises but maybe Aaron Eckhart will be more compelling than Jeremy Renner was(or wasn't) in that last regurgitation
