Michael Bay

One shouldn’t really look for much in these Transformers movies, a little action, some explosions, maybe an uplifting line from Optimus Prime to spur the troops, just some light entertainment. This final trailer for Michael Bay‘s latest Transformers: The Last Knight really tries to make you feel the feels, but let’s face it, those feels just aren’t there. Optimus Prime turning traitor should rip our hearts out, Prime trying to kill Bumble Bee should be devastating, but it’s just not there. Check out the trailer and prove us wrong. (more…)

Transformers: The Last Knight is coming to a theatre near you in a few months time, promising an insane mash-up of Arthurian legends, Second World War stories and whatever the hell the last couple of Transformers movies have been about. If you can’t yet get your head around what’s coming with The Last Knight, not to worry, maybe the answers will be found in a follow-up film. Over a dozen of them, according to the franchise’s director Michael Bay. Fourteen is the exact number the filmmaker revealed at a recent appearance, which means 14 more opportunities to be stymied by wondering who out there is loving these movies. (more…)

What exactly is going on with Transformers: The Last Knight is a question inside an enigma and smothered in secret sauce. We know that the film will feature characters from all four previous live-action films, and that it will also feature King Arthur and Merlin for some reason. As non-sequitur flashbacks got, it’s not as bad as having the Transformers in Ancient Egypt, but Medieval times is still an odd place to find ROBOTS THAT TURN INTO CARS AND PLANES!!! The next level oddness is that The Last Knight will also seemingly flashback to World War II, but in the process of shooting that scene Michael Bay has stepped on some highly vaunted toes. (more…)

Since their debut in the 80’s, many kids have dreamt of owning a giant Transformer. Michael Bay brought those fantasies to the big screen when he made the first live action Transformers movie. Now, a Turkish company has embraced its inner God Complex and created a real life transforming robot. Should we have done this? Is the world ready for this? What does Michael Bay think? (more…)

Once upon a time, America was secured by one man who, although he wasn’t a field agent, still did the U.S. of A. proud by protecting its interests at home and abroad. In the 21st century though, Jack Ryan just isn’t the big stuff he used to be. The last Jack Ryan movie, designed to reboot the movie series into a Bourne-again action franchise, was a disaster, barely scraping together $50 million at the domestic box office. Perhaps Jack Ryan just needs a change of venue to recharge, and that seems to be what Paramount Pictures is thinking by giving up the dream of an action movie franchise, and embrace the possibilities of streaming TV.

Many of us would likely agree that if you’ve seen one Transformers movie, you’ve seen them all, but this post is about Michael Bay showing us something new. The director has been slowly but surely revealing hints about who and what Transformers: The Last Knight will contain, but the real question is if the director will finally give fans of the franchise the movie they want, or will this be another Bayhem fuster-cluck? This post will not answer that question, but instead offer you a first look at a brand new Autobot created for the film (so you know it’s good!) and the return of an old face to the franchise.

Transformers has had some serious criticism thrown its way since the first film was released back in 2007. This hasn’t stopped director Michael Bay developing more movies involving the ongoing battle between the Autobots and the DecepticonsWhen the title was announced for Transformer 5 (The Last Knight) audiences were also reintroduced to the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime in a very short teaser video, with Prime’s face followed by the title. Putting two and two together, fans have theorized that the “Last Knight” could be Optimus Prime himself. Now, today, audiences were introduced to another cast member....

You can’t stop a lucrative thing from churning out sequels. Whether you love or hate Michael Bay‘s approach to cashing in on 80’s nostalgia, the Transformers movies are a definite hit and as such, have already planned ahead for 3 more sequels, scheduled to hit theaters in 2017, 2018 and 2019 respectively. However, according to Hasbro, a fourth film has currently been greenlighted, to tell the stand-alone tale of one of the second most famous Autobot…
