    Transformers 5: The Last Knight (June 23, 2017)

    Director: Michael Bay
    Writers: Ehren Kruger, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, & Ken Nolan
    IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3371366/
    Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transf...he_Last_Knight
    http://www.transformersmovie.com/

    Synopsis:
    The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

    There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
    Cast:

    Mark Walhberg - Cade Yeager
    Nicola Peltz - Tessa Yeager
    Jack Reynor - Shane Dyson
    Peter Cullen - Optimus Prime

    Yeah why not. I'm sure people are past their bitching and moaning at this point. Maybe.

    I mean. . . Marky Mark fought one with one of their own swords. Just give up on your nostalgia and enjoy the ride.

    From Peter Cullen (voice of Optimus):

    "There is a sense that Transformers movies are going into a darker area. I think I brought the concern to the movie studio and certainly to the writers. Perhaps…Transformers 5 and 6 movies will go back more to its roots. There was an occasion where one line [in Transformers: Age Of Extinction] which Optimus Prime had, I did not want to say. It was my gut instinct and certainly my commitment to the character… not to say the line. But I was told to say. You can’t fight the big boys. I think you all know what that line was."

    Three simple things will make the movies much better.

    1. Focus on the fucking robots
    2. Stop inventing new ones and or changing the names of existing ones. You have 4 seasons (5 if you count the extra season in japan where they actually do kill ultra magnus) + an animated movie to draw from hundreds of transformers. What they did to what was essentially Springer in the last one made me cry.
    3. Have the dinobots in for more than 5 fucking minutes.

    Your first point alone is all they need. No one cares about humans. If I wanted to see a movie about humans, I wouldn't be watching Transformers.

    As a long time fan of ALL generations of Transformers, I have absolutely zero problems with them making new bots. My problems with the films lie in the fact that, as your first point states, the bots are *not* the focus. I haven't even bothered watching the latest one, as I heard it was just a Mark Walhberg movie with robots in the background, which is NOT what I want out of a Transformers story.

    That said, I can only assume by "Springer" you're referring to the Blue sword wielding autobot who goes from being a helicopter to a car at some point. If you are, then you don't have to be upset as that character wasn't based on Springer in any way and was more based on the actual character named Drift who also uses swords, turns into a car, was formerly a decepticon and yes, is a weeaboo.

    There's actually a lot more then just 5 seasons of Transformer lore the movies pull from, and at this point they're actively creating their own, which is not new to the franchise of Transformers.

    While I knew of the character and his basic story, I never actually made the leap to think he was Springer so I can see why that much change could be off-putting. Fortunately they haven't actually used Springer as a real character yet, and hopefully they won't unless they actually make him a real Triple Changer.

    That said, Springer did get a *real* badass toy not too long ago, so he's not completely off the radar.

    Well Springer was the first Autobot Triple Changer, and he used a katana for melee in the animated movie, so that's how i made the conclusion. Then he talked and threatened to kill bumblebee and yeah. So many bad memories of 4.

    I also know they are creating new lore, but the "new" transformers just seem to fall flat. Jazz was awesome till they murdered him after 5 minutes of screen time. But they even seemed to start changing the established ones as well. Shockwave is a big one who comes to mind.

    Paramount Pictures wants more Transformers. Taking a page from Fox’s incubation of three Avatar sequels and what Disney is doing to revive Star Wars with a sequels and spinoffs, the studio is negotiating with Akiva Goldsman to work with franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a “writer’s room” that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel, and come up with potential spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise culled from the Hasbro toy line.
    sigh

    Multi-part sequels: The Yeager family gets a reality TV show. Tessa's college years, and Cade's new inventor job at KSI. Tessa's boyfriend is replaced without explanation, and Bumblebee does goofy shit in the background.

    Potential direct-to-DVD spinoff: Optimus finds the Quintessons, meets Galvatron there. Blah-blah-something-Transformers-who-cares-this-is-Hollywood-we-want-more-human-drama-buy-more-toys.

    Just for the sake of me liking the Dinobots but those weren't the Dinobots in the last Transformers movie. They just happened to be similar to Dinosaurs.
