TerraEsperZ Said:
Actually, Ironhide can be seen spinning in the air in slow-motion while avoiding rockets and firing his own. He's at least seen a little, unlike Ratchet.



Speaking of frame-by-frame, I assume you've noticed Megatron playing with his little Jazz rubber toy?


Oh, duh, how could I forget that shot of Ironhide?  o_0



I saw a bit in the game trailer where Bumblebee transforms into vehicle form while flipping in the air just like Ironhide does here.  Perhaps Ironhide is also transforming but the shot cuts away before we see that.  After a flip like that, it would make more sense to try to land on your tires so I would wager that's what he'll do.



That sound when Jazz gets stepped on does sound like a rubber toy, like many people have mentioned.  But later in that same trailer, you see another shot of Megatron (it's where he's transforming) and a similar sound happens again.  It's Megatron's sound, not the sound of Jazz being stepped on.



You know, if this was G1, it'd be the other way around, Jazz would be able to step on Megatron (at least in gun form).  Heck, most Transformers would be able to.  But now Megatron looks like he's one of the biggest.  And as it already is, the Decepticons (except for Frenzy and Scorponok) probably all dwarf the Autobots.  I suppose that's what will make the possible mano-a-mano (roboto-a-roboto) battle between Bumblebee and Barricade seem much more even.



According to what Michael Bay has said, the most impressive shots are actually not featured in this trailer, so if that's true, that's crazy!  In a good way!  Along with an earlier statement that this film is almost non-stop action, maybe it's not that surprising.



And supposedly the Transformers in front of Shrek 3 may actually be quite different than that alternate international version:

As expected, the movie is practically a car commercial...back in '86, people would've said Transformers was a toy commercial.

He he he, you triple-posted that JonLeung Wink



And the Ratchet part is kinda misleading, has he's not a standard H2 Hummer, but some sort of weird, possibly military ambulance variant thereof.

Gross, Sector Seven has what might be the movie theme song.



I found the original Japanese TV series' intro/outros here...now I gotta find the English ones...

Not that bad, but not that good either. I could see this playing during the ending credits though.

These can be yours, if the price is right!



Sorry I had to >_>

Looks like that theme song is either a fake or has another purpose because people have confirmed, based on the official soundtrack listing, that this is the official theme:

Personally, I prefer the previous one, which has a definite 'Linkin Park' vibe that rubs me the right way...

If anyone ever doubted that this movie will have both action and heart, then watch this clip of Sam trying to hide the Autobots from his parents (you'll need DivX codecs for it I think). Especially take notice of Bumblebee and the gestures he's making toward Optimus; I was grinning like a madman while watching this Smiley

Apparently they are doing the 8 PM early showing of Transformers today at most theaters in Edmonton that would be showing this at all.



But unfortunately I will not see it today as once planned.  Probably Friday, but at least that will be with more friends.



So I'll be avoiding this topic this week in case someone posts spoilers.  I have already read too many as it is on TFW2005.com - like who dies, what happens at the end, etc. - so it's unlikely I'll hear much else or even anything more major, and even so, it's another thing to see it...but you know, why risk ruining it?



I've been waiting to see this movie for years...another few days won't hurt (so long as nobody rubs it in that they've seen it already).

The worst thing is, if there was a movie for me to see in a theater, it would have been this one. Unfortunately, it's not being shown in English in Quebec city, and I say "fuck that" to seeing it dubbed in French. Just seeing the trailer dubbed is enough to turn me off the movie.



*sigh* Looks like I can either see it in a few weeks in Montreal with one of my friend, or wait until it's out on DVD. God do I hate that damn language-protection law...

I saw the movie on opening night and thought it was pretty good. The first hour was too long and drawn out with filler stuff. The Autobots were pretty funny though. And Prime's voice, might be slightly rusty for it being 20 years, but he's still got the touch.

I finally cracked, and saw it today. I'll be brief and avoid any spoilers for the moment.



If I ignore the entire audio track, I would probably give it 3 stars out of 4. But I was forced to see it in French, dubbed in Quebec even. Let's just say that it was enough to remove one star and make an otherwise great movie into a merely 'okay' one. The voices of the bots were horrible, all of them. While most of their dialog was cheese, I trust that good voice actors could make them work. Our actors couldn't, and every sentence coming out of a transformer sounded between bad and awful. I'll probably write more tomorrow, but right now the dub is all I can think about. Talk about ruining a movie experience...

Kinda sad that all you can think about is the dub.



As a Transformers fan, and as the only other person in this topic, I'm sure you'll speak up about more, especially after I see it myself.



At least you didn't spoil anything for me, since I'll be seeing it in the original English.



(One thing I am curious about, though, is their names.  Are they directly translated into French?  Is "Starcream" like, "cri d'?toile" or something?  And apparently Brawl has been mistakenly referred to as Devastator in the film, a stupid mistake.  Is this corrected or at least consistent in French?)



I'm pretty much confirmed to be seeing it at 8:30 PM tomorrow evening.  I'm looking forward to it, a bunch of people are going.
