Seems goofy but all right. Itd be cool to see a flashback of how
Cybertronians have been influencing humanity under the guise of
folklore, like the ancient aliens deal that WOULD have been cool in ROTF
if they didn’t fire orci and kurtzman
I was p much done with the movie franchise 10 minutes into RotF and up until that moment you could not find someone more pumped for the sequel than me. The first goddamn movie completely changed my sexuality and was the thing that set me on course to discovering macrophilia and giant robots, so it’ll always have a special place in my tiny heart (much to my chagrin)
but at this point I am 100% in gleeful nihilistic imp mode re: TLK. like, I want it to be the worst movie I’ve ever seen, I want to laugh loudly at inappropriate moments in the theater, I want to continue to be entertained/appalled at how fucking evil the autobots are in this universe, and I want to spend the next several months thereafter making fun of it and drawing terrible fanart ala spumco because that’s the level of irreverence that it deserves
so my hope isn’t that it doesn’t suck – it’s that it sucks all the way to 11
This is the first one I’m actually considering not watching.
This is coming from someone who has been a fan of the film since the first one (well actually I’ve been a TF fan for a good while before that).
The first one I really enjoyed. The second one was forgettable, and the third was definitely interesting. The fourth one actually had me reaching for my phone, wondering when the fuck it was going to end.
I liked TF4 way more than TF3 – partly because of how balls to the wall ridiculous the premise is (I mean, cmon, Prime legit sprouts jetpacks out of nowhere and flies off into space to go kill the robot god), but mostly because everything that comes out of Drift’s mouth is pure gold.
…and also partly because Lockdown is hot af so long as you don’t look at his actual face (reason #75832495 why sex with giants is awesome: in most positions, their body is all you CAN see!)
but yeah, I’m gonna go see it, and I’ll probably go see that stupid bumblebee movie too. husbando and I have a pretty grand time going to see big hollywood shootemups sometimes, especially if we get to be entertained by them ruining both his childhood and my sexuality in one fell swoop. we also get to feel good about helping the film industry destroy itself by supporting movies that contribute nothing of value to humanity
but I mean, come on, that gif up there is fuckin rad.
