Hey, Quaid here. I am one of the few (maybe the only one) on this site who are looking forward to Michael Bay’s Transformers sequel. I was really hesitant on the first movie, and I still don’t exactly think it is good, but it is a lot of fun. If there is one thing Bay is good for (and that is still somewhat up for dabate) it is making an awesome robot war movie.
This one looks like it is off-the-wall in its scope. I just hope it lets itself be goofy and fun. While I hated the “masturbation discussion” scene in the original, I loved some of the more campy elements. Especially John Turturro’s performance which seemed to come out of the movie I wished I was watching, and not the one that was in front of me. Still, the original was great eye candy, and this one looks to be doing the same thing.
That being said, the tone of this trailer is crazy serious. Trailers lie, and we don’t see many acting moments (who needs em, right Bay?), so who knows if this will end up overly dramatic.
I wouldn’t say I’m waiting for this movie, but I will see it with an opening weekend crowd. I’ll check my brain at the door and hope Shia can give me a good time.
Here is the bootleg trailer that appeared before Friday the 13th (but not in my theater).
UPDATE - Here is a link to the high quality trailer over at Yahoo.
