Sonic Rolls Out Transformers Slushes

Sonic has rolled out a series of Transformer Slushes.

It is part of a marketing campaign for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie.

There are three options in the series: Bumblebee, Megatron, and Optimus Prime.

Each consists of two flavors, with one placed on top of the other.

Bumblebee is a purple grape on top of orange.

Megatron is the same grape but on top of a clear bottom that Sonic just describes as “sweet”.

Optimus Prime is blue raspberry on top of red cherry.

Sonic is advertising them as “color changing” but really it is just the colors of the flavors mixing together to form a new color.

Bumble Bee Shows Off New Ability in Latest The Last Knight Trailer

Paramount Pictures have released yet another trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.

It’s actually probably the best one they have released.

If it was the first trailer, it would actually make seeing the movie desirable.

Unfortunately, it isn’t and we’ve had several bad trailers to make the movie look ridiculous and confusing, even to fans of the franchise.

However, there was one new thing that was pretty cool in this trailer.

Bumble Bee shows off an ability that we hadn’t seen before.

Coming under fire, he comes completely apart then destroys his enemies weapons while reassembling.

Hopefully, that same trick will come in handy when he’s fighting Optimus Prime, who has gone evil.

Transforms: The Last Knight Keeps Pouring on Confusion

Michael Bay just doesn’t know when to stop.

He seems very hell bent on making the new Transforms movie ridiculous.

In the first movie, Transformers had not been to earth before.

Then in the following movies, they found out that their race had been, and they just hadn’t known it.

However, the latest TV spot for The Last Knight shows us that Transformers have always been here and that they have been involved in all kinds of important human events.

We see pictures of Transformers aiding King Arthur as members of The Knights of The Roundtable, a Transformer advising George Washington, Drift with actual samurai, a Transformer with the “Order of the Witwiccans, 1901”, Ironhide in WWI, Bumble Bee in WWII, and more. The Order of the Witwiccans is apparently some sort of society that was run by the Witwicky family.

Somehow this was all forgotten, even by the Witwicky family, except for by a secret society, which just so happens to have only one member left, Anthony Hopkins.

In The Last Knight Optimus Prime has gone evil, after apparently meeting his creator. Setting up his attack on Bumble Bee, which doesn’t look to go well for our yellow friend.

One of the trailers also shows a rather large spaceship coming to Earth, after tearing bits off the moon (Independence Day: Resurgence anyone?).

After that, all hell breaks loose with humanity’s weapons falling to the Transformers overpowering might. Only a few human heroes and the remaining Autobots stand against the destruction of the human race, as Optimus leads a drive to reestablish Cybertron on Earth.

Apparently, somewhere in the movie, maybe at the beginning, we’ll also be spending some time in the Middle Ages with King Arthur and in WWII with Bumble Bee. Leaks from the studio suggest that they are full segments, not just random clips.

As a fan of the original movie, I’ve been very saddened to see the series fall and honestly can not recommend this movie in theaters. It just looks ridiculous and I really don’t want to see Optimus go full dark side. I’m angry that the movies contradict each other, and also with Bay’s plans to make another ten Transformer movies.

That said, I do want the movie to be good. I want to be surprised and actually, enjoy this new concept of Transformers throughout history. My main issue is that it contradicts the earlier movies.

Transformers: The Last Knight is set for release on June 21.

New Trailer For Transformers: The Last Knight Adds to Ridiculousness

A new trailer has been released for Transformers: The Last Knight.

While it does explain some things as to the plot of the movie, it also adds to the ridiculousness that has come of the franchise.

According to the trailer and this movie, Transformers fought alongside humans during the Medieval Age. Somehow this was all forgotten, except for by a secret society.

Optimus Prime has gone evil, after apparently meeting his creator. Setting up his attack on Bumble Bee, which doesn’t look to go well for our yellow friend.

The trailer also shows a rather large spaceship coming to Earth, after tearing bits off the moon (Independence Day: Resurgence anyone?).

After that, all hell breaks loose with humanity’s weapons falling to the transformers overpowering might. Only a few human heroes and the remaining Autobots stand against the destruction of the human race, as Optimus leads a drive to reestablish Cybertron on Earth.

As a fan of the original movie, I’ve been very saddened to see the series fall and honestly can not recommend this movie in theaters. It just looks ridiculous and I really don’t want to see Optimus go full dark side.

Transformers: The Last Knight is set for theatrical release on June 23.

Tranformers 4 Release Date and Logo Unveiled

On Wednesday, Michael Bay confirmed that Transformers 4, would be happening.

Over Thursday, he added a little bit more to the information that we already knew.

Yes, Mark Wahlberg will be starring in it, as a completely new character.

It seems Wahlberg will be playing a father of a teen who, if the movies keep coming, will take over the starring role.

A release date was given of June 27, 2014.

Bay also unveiled the logo for the film.

Transformers 4 Confirmed

Michael Bay has confirmed that work has begun on Transformers 4.

“We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4.”

At this point all that’s known is that Bay will be directing it, Ehren Kruger will be writing it, and that Mark Wahlberg will be the star.

Expectations are for it to start right where Transformers 3 left off and that it will have an entirely new human cast.

He says that internet rumors are what actually decided him on going forth with the project.

Transformers: Dark of The Moon Review

For me this was what summer movies are all about. A movie that has you at the edge of your seat at times from pure excitement. Just like the other Transformer movies, there was a lot of humor and tons of action, with intervals of space to allow the plot to continue. As expected from a Michael Bay film there’s some over the top action shots, which aren’t that believable, but are very sweet to watch. I do love how once again there were very good shots showing red white and blue and some patriotic little speeches. The best of which being at the end with Optimus Prime giving his final words and Bumble Bee standing in front of a torn and battered US flag still waving free despite the battle’s destruction. There’s also a sweet scene of Air Force wing suits.
Basically, you will enjoy this film if you go looking for an extremely enjoyable summer movie, if you go expecting the next big Oscar winner, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

Warning: Spoilers if you continue.
From the start with the crashing of a ship on the moon in 1961, and the Apollo missions primarily being about exploring this ship, the plot was mostly coherent and sensible. The Autobots work openly and very closely with the US Military out of NEST, commanded by Colonel Lennox (Josh Duhamel). They’ve just successfully taken out an illegal nuclear facility somewhere in the Middle East (honestly one of my favourite parts), and then the plot for this movie begins with an encounter with Decepticons at Chernobyl. Coming back from Chernobyl they are met by Mearing (Francis McDormand) and Optimus gets a visit from former NASA space program members, including the actual Buzz Aldrin (another highlight) who fully explain to them about the moon.
Sam (Shia LaBeouf) is now living in DC, trying to find that elusive first job in today’s economy. His new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) Carly’s place is explained, though not exactly what happened to Mikaela (Megan Fox), all we learn through the whole movie is that they broke up. Sam ends up able to get a position working for Bruce Brazos (John Malkovich) who’s as odd as you’d expect from him. Jealousy is aroused when Sam seems how Carly is treated by her boss Dylan (Patrick Dempsey).
The movie continues on with the action building, with some twists (expected mostly and a few definitely not expected), until Chicago is all but destroyed with an expected outcome and Sam once again growing up to find what really matters.

John Tuturro, Tyrese Gibson, Glenn Morshower, Kevin Dunn, and Julie White all reprised their various roles. Some great additions were Leonard Nimoy and Alan Tudyk, who’s character Dutch was kind of awesome. Speaking of awesome, Scott Krinsky from Chuck was in it as well as one other of the Buy More crew. Bill O’Reilly even made an appearance as himself.
Also there were some parts of the plot which didn’t make sense to me like why Wheelie (“I follow warrior goddess”) and Mikaela’s junk yard dog Bonecrusher, are with Sam, rather than her. Also the twins who were such a slapstick part of Revenge of The Fallen were missing as well as Mojo, Frankie, and the Arcee motorcycles.
The good news for haters and fans alike is that this seems to be the last movie, and Michael Bay appears happy with a trilogy.
