This far into the Transformer series of films by Michael Bay you know exactly what you’re going to get, so you’re either going to see Transformers: Age of Extinction and enjoy it, see it and hate watch it, or just ignore its passing and seeing something more engaging to your personal taste at the multiplex. If I could describe Age of Extinction in two words, they would be “too much,” too much exposition, too much action, too much plot, too much Bay-hem… And although it’s not as noticeable, too much silliness mixed in with all the hardcore action. In other words, it’s everything you like, or hate, already about Transformers films, just more of it. (more…)
Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Stanley Tucci… These are NOT the names you typically associate with a Transformers movie, but they’re the names we know are involved so far. But because secrets don’t stay secret in Hollywood for long, we seemed to have gotten our first confirmation about which robots will be fighting it out for the Earth (and bragging rights) in Transformers: Age of Extinction.

“ME, GRIMLOCK, CAST IN TRANSFORMERS 4? WHY THEY NOT CAST ME IN TRANSFORMERS 1? GRIMLOCK WANT TO BE IN FIRST TRANSFORMERS MOVIE.”
Above’s an exclusive quote I got when asking my Grimlock toy how he felt about being passed over, repeatedly, only to now be rumored as appearing in Tranformers 4. Grimlock, if you’ll remember, did have an important and valuable role in 1986’s Transformers: The Movie, a film almost universally considered better than anything the Michael Bay‘s franchise has produced. Here’s a collection of the Dinobot’s “best” moments,
Can we just get a restored, re-release of this movie? kthnxbye
So what of Grimlock and the Dinobots – also the name of my Vince DiCola cover band – appearing in Transformers 4? It’s the latest rumor rounded up by JoBlo about the Bayformers fourquel. Their source has told them not only will the Dinobots appear, but at one point Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will ride them into battle. To which I say, don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep! I would pay good money to see this! Anyone would pay good money to see that! They’ve already given themselves away with such a bold-faced lie, because nothing, nothing as cool as Prime riding a Dinobot would happen in a Bayformers flick.
Other classic ‘bots rumored to appear are the Autobot Hound and the Decepticon leader, Galvatron, who’s little more than a “resurrected” Megatron. There’s also talk of a “samurai’ Transformer, named Drift, who was once a Decepticon but seeks to regain his honor by joining the Autobots.
Damn, no Wheelie.
I’ll say I’m happy to hear some news about the ROBOTS of this “robots in disguise” franchise, as they’re often overlooked for whatever stupid humans are cast. But, I don’t know if even the Dinobots are enough to get me excited about Transformers 4. What are you guys thinking?
