@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 01:55 PM)

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

And then the magic ponies force everyone to be friends FOREVERRRRRRR

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

@  Otaku : (19 June 2018 - 10:53 AM)

As for Megatron vs Skynet... Shockwave decides to partner with Skynet and oust Megatron after first contact is made. We get Terminator/Vehicon hybrids. At first the humans are expedient pawns (why waste loyal Decepticons), then enough humans augmented with Cybertronian tech impress Megs that, after victory, humanity is absorbed into the Decepticon empire. Even if only as second or third class citizens, it still beats being seen as vermin by Skynet.

@  Otaku : (19 June 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Like I said, it is a nitpick; it makes sense, I'd just like to see a "regular" Earth setting where the 'cons take a stealthier approach to things - maybe because the Autobots are a better check against them and so they play the heroes. I mean, they could use various means to take being a sort of M.A.S.K. meets Power Rangers style team. ;)

@  Otaku : (19 June 2018 - 10:45 AM)

@Nevermore Works well enough for me. If I had to nitpick, I think there are actually two different stories being forced together. A "Thunderbolts" style story with the Decepticons doesn't need Skynet... and Megatron liberating the humans from Skynet doesn't need the subterfuge, at least for long.

@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:33 AM)

I can dig it

@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:21 AM)

So Thunderbolts with giant robots?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Thundercracker, in particular.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:21 PM)

Some of the Decepticons start to really enjoy being the good guys. Well, they enjoy the act, at least. They find fulfillment in their assumed personas.

Ok, i saw an advanced screening. There's... five bonus scenes at the credits (I think it's five but I might be thinking they were part of the actual movie before the credits. I list five) so wait until the very, very end of everything.

General thought, rather emotional. My friend, who's a DC fan and didn't watch the first movie (gasp!) said it was forced (jerk). While I thought there were smarmy moments, I still got emotional anyway at two parts.

Ask me anything.

Its definitely more emotional but I really like this crew. A couple of the jokes didn't work for me but maybe 9/10 did.
Maybe not quite as good as the first but it's close.
Music never landed as well with me this time either. Im still gonna buy the cd again if there is one though.

I actually didn't like the abundance of drama. Everybody kept with the theme so it got tired for me. I still teared up with one of them though.

Honestly up there as one of my favourite Marvel films. In my opinion it's more developed than the first.

While it does retread some tropes, the plot itself is different enough to feel special and it brings a lot of new stuff to the table that develops both the team and the galaxy as a whole.

It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Long story short, it wasn't as good as the first, especially in the first half which was over indulgent with silliness. Fortunately it tempered out by the second half and became fully engrossing. I'd give it 8/10.


Ok Spoiler question: Was Stalones group at the end supposed to be someone? I'm not familiar with the comics.

I dunno.  The intro scene was easily the most entertained that I've been at an MCU film.

 

Some of it seemed very forced at times, but overall, I really liked this film and would definitely go and see it in the cinema again.

I never thought I'd say this about any of those characters, but holy crap, can we get that movie right now? Stallone at age 70 still looks like he could smash a brick wall with his chin and walk away, whistling.

I've read more than a few of the older books, enough that Martinex, Charlie-27, Nikki, and Starhawk (obviously) were easy to figure out. Really loved seeing Krugarr there, I'd be delighted if that guy earned another cameo in Doctor Strange. Who was the head though, was that Mainframe? It's been a while and some of the details are a bit foggy. The original books weren't particularly interesting and I didn't stick with them for long, I think I enjoyed them more when I was a kid. But the cameos still left me giddy.

 

What an exuberant movie, too. And they hit a lot of the right dramatic notes! With me, anyway. 

I've said for years that "Brandy" by Looking Glass is the perfect song. Validation of this magnitude is going to make me difficult to live with for the next week or so.

Saw it last night. No, it wasn't as good as the first (which might be in my personal top 3 all-time). Yes, it was still excellent and a film I'll be more than happy to see multiple times. I'm taking my sons to the matinee Sunday, and was excited for that as I was walking out of the theater last night.

 

It was exciting. It was engaging. It was funny. It was emotional. I cared about these characters.

 

And holy balls, that Stan Lee cameo. All the wide-eyed, cheer-stifling, finger pointing at that cameo.

I thought it was good. Not as good as the original. Much sloppier storytelling and script here.

Also, I'm really hating these sequels where they take all agency away from the characters. This story felt like the Guardians reading to events happening around them, rather than them having a say in their own story. It really makes a difference in the feeling of the story. I did like the change in theme this time around...
