Looks really really fun. Can't wait.
Giant robots make me
"It is wrong to assume that art needs the spectator in order to be. The film runs on without any eyes. The spectator cannot exist without it. It ensures his existence." -- James Douglas Morrison
Anyway... not having followed this until just recently... I am in. Del Toro, Hunnam, Perlman, Elba... HELL YEAH I'M IN!!!
Wait, so I'm encouraged to think that the Transformers suck but I'm supposed to be excited about this? Don't get me wrong, it does look like an extra large popcorn movie, but it also makes me think Real Steel and Battleship.
"Laissez-moi vous émerveiller:"
i dont see how giant mechas are any more unrealistic than say the ships in star trek and many of the trek films are serious.
im not one to hate on Transformers, when the first came out, it was my favorite movie (then ironman, dark knight and so on came out, and formers is now FAR from being my favorite)
agreed Luther is Supurb!
im with u in that i like some movies the masses dont like, its not message board warriors making thease opinions its just the mass general opinions of film goers, the actualy type or genre of film doesnt make a film garbage its all in how its made, from the plot, actors, special effects and other items.
like Halloween (79) and the Majority of the Friday the 13th films are both of the slasher genre, but the original halloween is directed far more stylishly and suspensefuly than the f13 films, it has a better lead actress playing a character we actualy care for unlike much of the f13 films. making it the superior film.
its all in how the film is made.
im not saying that is or should be the absolute opinion of the masses but thats just how people grade such films
I love giant robots--when they are accompanied by strong writing, believable acting and creative directing.
The bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.
The special effects look great, but I wasn't that impressed by the punch, and the film seems to have a very serious tone - as opposed to a fun tone - based on this trailer. I'll keep my eye on the movie, but it doesn't seem like a must-see film at this point.
"'Kirby got a shitty contract too, so get over it' isn't a great tagline."
