If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Now for me personally, aside from the second one (Revenge of the Fallen), I really did like the Transformers film series. But thinking about what they could do in the future and what I would want to see in a third sequel (since I am a hardcore fan), I came to realize that they can't do anything interesting with what they already have that won't culminate into the same exact thing we saw before but with new human characters. So I just wanted to ask, if the Transformers series was eventually rebooted as was done with properties like Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, what would you like to see done (cast, director, etc.)? I'd really like to see someone like Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man), Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans, Ninja Turtles), Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Justin Lin (the last three films in The Fast and the Furious series), Joss Whedon (The Avengers), or Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, directorial contender for Speed Racer) take over the series. For actors, I'm not sure. I'm not one of the fans craving a film set on Cybertron, so I'd still want human characters. Maybe even revamp the ones from the first series (since they were revamps themselves of characters from the original cartoon). But I'm not sure about casting yet though. As for a design aesthetic, I'm fine with the "organic robot" look that's been going on, but I'd like some of the vehicle mode color schemes and robot designs to be modified. (take the flames off Prime, make Ironhide some form of red or maroon and give him a "roman-style" helmet, make Ratchet red and white and give him his helmet with the crest, make Jazz white instead of silver and make his helmet black, etc.)
You are absolutely right that it is indeed a movie based on a kids toy but that doesn't mean it has to be only for kids, I'd like it if they tried to have some sort of intelligent story but they didn't really try.
Enough with the Brad Bird already! I've already heard his name thrown around a billion times already on the TFW2005.com boards.
Why would you bother asking the question if your going to have a fit when someone answers it?
That seems to be his modus operandi throughout this entire thread.
You do realize I was joking right?
They need to get a director who's proven he can excel at both live action and CG films, and can handle mature yet fun subject matter, like the guy who directed The Incredibles...
Yeah, him. Seems like Brad Bird would do a good job.
That Brad Bird, what a guy.
Dude, you don't have to gush all over him because you think he'd be a good choice to direct. I get it, you think he'd be a good director. And if that comment was intended to get me angry, then you must not know me very well.
Dude, don't tell me who I do and don't have to gush over.
If I want to gush about Brad Bird all God damned day long I will, with or without your permission.
Woah there. I wasn't trying to tell you anything. I was just saying that the only thing you needed to do is say that you wanted him to direct.
If you weren't trying to tell me anything then do us both a favor and fuck off.
