'Transformers 4' Coming In Summer 2014!
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee certain to return
A reboot will fail at the box office. it's too soon for that by 2014.
it's not like the first trilogy was that bad if you judge it by a cartoon and reality.
I thought the first one was done rather well and the story was basic and right from one of the old cartoons, and the transformers themselfs were done very very good,even by voice. it was funny and serious, and had nice battles and the marines were kickass too. i saw nothing wrong with transformers part one.
good entertainment. bumble bee was way cool...
part 2 of course sucked bad but had a few good moments.
part 3 again was way better then part 2, not one, and did a good job once again.
i see no reason for a re-boot, when it was done very well already on how and why they came to earth.. thats done... the 3 movies are done, so why not just make another sequel instead.. a re-boot will only piss off fans and insult anyone else, and what if you make it worse?
if anything it should be 1o years later and all is well on earth and same has moved on and gotten married and parted ways with his old freiend bumbleBee
who now lives with his companion autobots in a secret desert location and monitor earth and anything that comes close to it... all has been well for 10 years, until now... something is coming towards earth, maybe a ship full of deceptacons, bad guys, an army lead by a new villian and maybe star scream, if he still lives, who went and found new allies to come seek revenge and take over earth once again and they bring a new weapon with them,something they went and found, maybe from one of the cartoons, a device which makes the autobots turn bad and go against each other and the people of earth.
so earth has no choice but to destory the bad guys and the good guys.
that would make a nice sequel right there..
i think people have had enough of megatron anyways...
Therre are so many old school transformer cartooin stories out there that would make for a nice movie, if they bother to watch them. not the new cartoon but the older version, which is ten times better... old school.
there is one episode where they do make some of the autobots trun bad for a while and fight each other...
Thats what i would do next.. it's just a movie about transforming robots, what type of story do you want, yentle? the green mile? it basicly has to be the same.
good guys.. bad guys... bad things happen and good guys need to make it un happen and win in the end.. for the most part, or lose and come back with a sequel and win... or lose... it's basic stuff and we wanna see it because we like the robots and the destruction and the funny stuff they add in..
the characters are set already and perfect the way they are, voice and all..
why re-boot it so soon is a BNAD BAD BAD IDEA!!!!!
waste of time and money.
just make a sequel, and do it right and make a killer trailer which will show them it is right..... yee have little faith when they did a great job already on the first 3 films already, number 2 being the weakest and we all know why....
so don't make the same mistakes twice.. learn from them.
i won't go see any re-boot.. i'll wait and buy it for 10 bucks, used at my local music and cd shop... many will.
I am absolutely certain that Michael Bay will find new ways to cover up a great idea with a great franchise with subpar visuals, horrendous acting, epic fail plot and big explosions. Heck, Bay even messed up trying to integrate the cartoon to the big screen: Sam's dad was a construction foreman, Sam wanted or was studying science at a college and he eventually finds a lady scientist. They get married and have a kid.
The three movies in general were not totally bad, but Bay did a great job botching a great idea. I am sure he will go to great lengths to make a bad idea worse with this 'reboot'...
Michael Bay is proof that you shouldn't say "It can't get any worse" because he will prove you wrong!
Well the question is, will it be a reboot or a sequel/prequel? It cannot be both. A reboot is a film that takes the story and basically says, everything that came before it, everything you knew about the characters, everything that has been laid down in film up to this point, did not happen (hence my huge disdain for that Spiderman reboot that looks like its going to be dated the second its released).
Truly rebooting the franchise would be stupid. Progressing the story without the current characters (like Sam) would be fine. Doing a prequel would be hard unless its based solely on Cybertron or deals with that aspect. I mean, seriously, can you really bring the transformers to earth and have them interacting with the human population and then say, oh yea, this is a sequel, we just forgot to mention all this in the first film?
