Yeah, oddeye. I accidentally RATED without the COMMENT and the stars don't show.
I also don't care if their heads don't change color constantly from yellow to grey, sometimes in the middle of combat.

I think I actually want to watch this.
I remember when the first one came out, a friend of mine described the CGI battles between the transformers as like watching scrambled porn. I've yet to hear a more accurate description of these ghastly movies.
I would like to tip my hat to Bay for making Whalberg the new lead, though. He might have found a way to squeeze just a little more awfulness onto the screen.
I absolutely lived and breathed Transformers as a child, and as an "adult" I like a lot of bad movies for a lot of amazingly flimsy excuses hiding the fact I actually have no taste. So, when I see a Transformers trailer and my brain says "this movie sucks, skip it (see stock reason #353 #93 #26458 #879)" I am baffled. I want to love these movies. They are better than the cartoon that I will still watch to get a laugh once a decade, yet I can't extend it to this. I saw the first one and thought it was great for a Michael Bay movie, but it didn't transform and roll out my heart strings.
I really want to love these movies.

Did the characters ever call them "Transformers" in the older cartoons/comics/whatever? Didn't they just use "Autobot" and "Decepticon"?
That may seem a strange thing to notice, but it really jumped out at me in the trailer. It's like someone saying "I'm just so tired of all these Star Wars" in the middle of Return of the Jedi.

It's only a matter of time before these things get so unbelievably shitty as to stop being unwatchable shitty and become entertainingly terrible shitty again. I'm not saying I would ever give these things my money, though.
