Transformers - The Last Knight

Looks to be another one of those, 'edge of your seat' adventures. Coming in June 2017

I'm boycotting Michael Bay's flicks since the second movie. Partly because of his interpretation of Transformers as belligerent brawlers, but mostly because it's non-stop chaos with horribly annoying human characters that are shoe-horned in. I support IDW's Transformers comic series instead, which also sparked a far superior toy line.
That's just my opinion of course. People who like spectacle, explosions and wild camera movements can undoubtedly still enjoy this movie with their brains turned off.

Giant robots beating the crap out each other with swords and cannons... Hell yeah!

Space ships, lasers and the odd sexy babe... Omg! Where's my popcorn.

I'm not renowned for being a 'deep' person lol.

I tend to watch these just to enjoy the spectacle of the CGI, the plot is usually threadbare, sexy babes aside !

@ Freddy...

I particularly liked the way in which you 'wove' the words "threadbare" and "sexy babes" into one sentence.

Oh yeah...korrelan...pass some popcorn!! :2funny:

Agree with that.  Truly terrible films but great turn your brain off popcorn flicks.
