I don't hate him
But I feel like they're shooting themselves in the foot by going so aggressive with him; everyone's sick of him, myself included. If they'd let up on that I feel like there wouldn't be nearly as much knee-jerk hatred for the name
Ooh, I'd be cool with that
I really like how they presented his personality in ROTF; he was one of the movie's few good traits
Farting Parachutes aside
That's one of the reasons I'm feeling hopeful
The other being the new writers
I'd actually be cool with it if it is Unicron, 'cause it looks awesome, but at the same time I'm kinda hoping it's something completely new to Transformers that hasn't been done before
This is another reason I'm feeling optimistic about this one
I hope they have a bit of the original Optimus theme somewhere in there
I love all the scores, but I will say the first movie is my favorite on that front as well; the frequent use of background chanting and this little guitar... kibble, for lack of a better word, just really helped the atmosphere so much.
Songs like "Optimus" and "Bumblebee" even now give me this feeling of a warm summer night
And one that isn't discussed so often, my personal favorite track would have to be "Sam on the Roof", specifically the latter half
Throughout the movie there was this chanting; sometimes ominous, sometimes heroic
And this track feels like the culimation of all of that, with the two chants coming together with the familiar autobot theme on violin, just bringing everything together for this small but important piece of defiance: "I'm never
giving you this Allspark!"
Sorry, geeked out there
But yeah, it really is amazing how well the first movie holds up IMO
I'll admit it
The two main draws (along with various stuff like new writers making me feel good about this in general) are the giant broken jungle planet that may or may not be Unicron, and seeing Megatron hopefully at his best. I really love the new design; it feels like the perfect compromise between his '07 Movie and G1 designs.
This would be really cool, to be honest; hoping this is the route they take
I still love the first movie, but it does really bother me how quickly Jazz died without much screentime, now that I've become familiar with other versions of the character. That and the "Bumblebee peeing on Simmons" scene were the only things I can say I truly dislike about that one.
At least Ironhide got some good moments before his death; I think he's one of my favorite of the movieverse characters
RIP the Arc
I'll admit, I'm not really fond of this idea, or of Squeeks
I guess I'll see how they're handled in the movie, but it seems like a blatant Kid-Appeal marketing move
However the movie turns out, I'm buying the crap out of the leader toy when it hits shelves
I'm kinda hoping this is just a toy thing and not in the actual movie, not really a fan of that design
