Latest ‘Transformers’ is bad even for a ‘Transformers’ movie

Haven’t been on for a while due to college work and stress in my family lately, but I have been able to watch The Last Knight to get some worries off of my head for a while. Probably, but it’s hard to think of another knighted, Oscar-winning 80-year-old who got to call Mark Wahlberg “dude” and shoot Megatron with a machine gun hidden inside a walking stick.While it’s most likely that Director Michael Bay won’t be around for a next Transformers movie, it hasn’t stopped Paramount Studios from preparing for upcoming titles under the series. I can barely summon a feeling about The Last Knight; if anything, I feel slightly anxious about how little I hated it. Some of the films are in wide release (600 screens or more in the United States and Canada) and some are in limited release (a motion picture that is playing in a select few theaters across the country [typically in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco]).I’m not sure I’d care and the early United States box office suggests others are agreeing with this sequel apparently being made largely for the overseas market.Sure, the plot is a hot steaming mess of nonsensical dialogue with loose strands of story, and at 149 minutes it’s a good half hour too long, but with all the fear and hate in real life, sometimes it’s nice to switch your brain off and escape to a world where robots exist – and there’s nothing wrong with that. Hopkins is in Sir Alec Guinness territory here, with Sir Edmund’s trusty robot sidekick, Cogman (voiced by Downtown Abbey star Jim Carter with a reckless glee), as a deranged, Ludacris-quoting C-3PO by his side.Let’s talk about the Transformers The Last Knight credits scene and what it means for the future of the franchise, but beware of spoilers for the sequel if you haven’t seen it yet. The first film, while critically divisive, is still looked back upon positively by most audiences.The first of the film’s many issues is that, apparently, the Autobots and Decepticons are somehow connected to King Arthur, because transforming robotic cars definitely existed in medieval times.”I am not going to try to explain the story – after watching this movie I may never try to explain another story ever again”. Will The Last Knight be as entertaining as Dark of the Moon? “It was Ken [Nolan] who said, ‘What if we did John Boorman’s Excalibur with Transformers?“.On its first night in theatres, “Transformers: The Last Knight” made $15.7 million which earned it the title of being the lowest opening day figures for any five film in the series to date.The Transformers franchise has definitely gotten a bad rap, as has most things that involve Michael Bay.She says: “It’s just fantastic how much this man does, and how much he’s got on his plate to turn a movie of this size out”. I can not wholeheartedly recommend it, but I think I had enough fun that fans of AOE should give it a shot. And that’s why everybody keeps coming back.
