Yay to the Slurpee cups!!!!!!!!
If this guy directs it, I'll refuse to see it. He's an absolute zero. A film school brat and butt kissing Hollywood "yes man" with no artistic merit whatsoever. The script could be total garbage, but he's the kind of guy who'll sit there and say "WOW, I'm blown away!".
Gary Goddard actually cared about the production and did what I believe is the best he could, despite the budget restrictions and lack of creative control thanks to Mattel. He was an inspired enough guy to inject influences from Jack Kirby. He actually wanted to create something instead of something to please studio executives and earn him a couple of million.
Who really wants a new movie at this point? It will all be about pushing out a turd and making those first week box office dollars before it's ripped to shreds by critics and fans, then into the bargain bin at Wal-Mart for $5.00. Not to mention try and sell as many 7-Eleven Slurpee cups and toys.

Going to film school and getting signed to an agency based on a student short isn't what I'd call making it though hard work, talent and perseverance. Anyone with rich parents and who makes product and not art can do that. I doubt this guy ever had to live off baloney in order to pay his cast and crew. Peter Jackson now. While I do not like his Hollywood efforts, starved for years while making independent films like Bad Taste.
Butthurt Fanboy? Hardly. I'd say that best describes the one who gets "riled" up over the opinion of another. Film snob, maybe. Which is why I have no use for modern Hollywood products that don't set out to be anything other than trash made for a quick opening day buck (like pretty much everything Mr. Chu has produced).
You're a nostalgic. You already hate it. You wish you could forbid everyone from watching it. Good. That means it's gonna be awesome. Don't worry though, I have something that'll cheer you up:
Please embed all youtube videos. Thank you!
Have fun being a MOTU hater. Meanwhile, MOTU fans will be eager to see the movie.

Wrong. I know I couldn't stop people from seeing it, even if I wanted to. America has an uncanny desire to demand more junk they can give their money for.
I'm sorry if comparing it to begging to be raped is harsh, but that's the vibe I get from it all. But hey, it's OK by me.
See, I don't live in a fantasy world where subjective opinions don't exist and everyone happily accepts whatever is placed in front of them. If you do, I apologize for bursting that little bubble.
Hey, maybe Justin Bieber can star as Prince Adam or something. Then we can have a cool hit song tie-in! Like a nice little over produced pop song about He-Man. But don't worry. Those of us with good taste will just endure the torture for sake of not wanting to upset anyone.

OK, now that is total bull crap. So unless you want to see a new movie and will be happy as long as anyone directs, you're not a true MOTU fan? A lot of Hardcore fans HATED the 1987 movie. Sit here now and say they aren't real fans. Some hardcore fans even hate the Filmation cartoon.
Sorry to slap you into reality, but being a fan doesn't mean having zero standards and being a fool that buys anything that bears the logo.
The fact is, I am a fan and have been for close to 30 years now. Which is why I really hate to see it dragged through the mud by talentless hacks so some Hollywood creeps can make some bucks.
I never said anything about "true fans", I hate that expression wholeheartedly. I'm simply stating the obvious that you are denying: if you like something, you're a fan; if you hate it, you're a hater. Straightforward. The truth is that you hate this movie already because it will be different from the Filmation cartoon, and because it will have lots of cool CGI effects instead of being based on limited animation like the Filmation cartoon. You believe that the Filmation cartoon is the pinnacle of everything MOTU and you hate with a passion anything that differs from it. Am I right, yes or yes?
Also, why are you so obsessed about rape? How many times were you raped?

By implying I was a MOTU hater, was basically saying I wasn't a fan. When if you had the ability to read, would see I never had an issue with MOTU (and I fully understand that MOTU is largely a commercial property and not a work of art), but with a new movie, or at least one falling into the wrong hands.
I don't see anything in my words that would indicate an obsession with rape. I used it once as a metaphor.
Your little caption there about being a fan and not a nostalgic implies the same.
I'm proud to be a nostalgic. I think the 2000x series and toys were crap. I have no desire to spend my money on paper weights or bobbleheads nor see a new CGI crapfest of a new film and hey, it's very possible that had I not grown up with He-Man, at 31 I'd think the concept was a bit silly. Being nothing more than an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink property consisting of ideas taken from various other sources and thrown together in order to sell toys.
Huhhh. Did I just say that? *Awaits a horde of grown men in cosplay furry underwear and Prince Valiant wigs to charge and crucify me.*
That's like being proud to be a pedophile. Nostalgia kills reason, I'd rather kill nostalgia.Your little caption there about being a fan and not a nostalgic implies the same.

You know you can actually like something, yet be real about the true nature of it's content. For instance, I like KFC every now and then. I love sinking my teeth into that greasy crap and dunking those biscuits into that gravy it comes with. I like it. Even though I know and fully acknowledge it's bad for my health and the corporate selling it and seducing me into buying it do not give a crap.
The truth is the truth. Like I also like She-Ra too. But the reality is she's based on an old toy of Mattel (Sunspell) and the entire added elements were outwardly stolen from DC's Amethyst. Just like the Zodac's concept was ripped from New Gods' Metron.
Sorry, but as a 31 year old man and not a four year old watching toy commercials, now I can see these elements loud and clear and cannot help but to mock them a bit. But it does not mean I do not appreciate the way it inspired imagination, provided hours of fun as well as the inventiveness of the designers at Mattel who created things we would like, not just buy.
Or should I just say, the nostalgia.
Nostalgia is a double edged sword. It can be great, transporting you to a time and place where the world was much simpler and you were much happier. It can also be poison. It can blind you and completely shut off your mind until there is no bigger picture and everything is just black and white. I try my best to remain balanced.
I hope its funny. Retaliation comes out in a couple of weeks so that will bring some fore sight to what John Chu is capable of. I think we need to give the people who are in charge of MOTU now a break. Everything so far has been good. The 200x show was amazing, the toys were amazing, the new DC comic is pretty fab so far MOTUC is all I can think about lately. I think the He-men are in good hands. I think we can all take a couple of breaths sometimes. : )
Also to add insult to injury the plastic summer movie slurpy cup has been extinct for two summers now. What a bummer. I would totally have a Teela cup in 3-D hopefully.
Can somebody name one 'awesome scene' in Bay-formers.
(that is not some mixture of Discovery 'Future Weapons' and 'Americas Funniest Home Videos')
Anyway, just off the top of my head, here are some scenes that make the movies worth watching. From 1: the arrival of the Transformers, the battle between Bumblebee and Barricade, the final battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron. From 2: the battle in China, the Constructicons assembling Devastator, the sacrifice of Jetfire to power up Optimus Prime. From 3: all scenes on the moon, all scenes at Chernobyl, the opening of the portal, Optimus Prime actually using his trailer for something, Sam killing Dylan, the appearance of Cybertron, the battle in Chicago.
Mind you, these are just the cool scenes I remember without watching the movies again.

King Paul is right, Bay-formers sucked. From rottentomatoes:
Transformers (2007): 57%
Transformers ROTF: 20%
Transformers DOTM: 36%
Sure they made a lot of money, but that does equate to quality. I'm curious to see how the new Gi Joe movie does both critically and financially. That would be the best Litmus test for John Chu's abilities to handle a MotU movie.
I just hope it avoids all ties to the Filmation series.

I actually liked the first transformer movie, didnt mind the second and never saw the third one.
Fact of the matter is you will never please everyone. How did the transformers movies do box office wise? Did they do well?
Obey the whip!
Smile like you mean it.
