    You guys are getting a lil carried away with the Transformers coverage. Seriously, this is like the 758th article about Transformers in the past few days.

    • Daniel Rodriguez

      They do the same with other movies and TV shows, nothing new.

    • Liderc

      maybe because it’s popular? The last one made 1.2 billion dollars, despite being critically panned. What that means is, the average joe, loves the movies, what that means, is they search for it and give collider hits, what that means, is more money from ad views.

      • [A]

        what that means is.. you shouldn’t use that many “what that means”


      • Werefon

        What that means your comments are always out of place and not funny.

        Not kidding! (ok that was rude, sorry).

    • [A]

      don’t worry — there are a few Bay-defenders out there. and more than a couple in this article alone

      • Werefon

        Don’t worry there is one douche and he is alone everywhere.

        The douche is you (I wrote this so no one would say that I was speaking about myself and failed at being clever trying to repeat Rabbit’s tactics from 8 Mile).

  • SomeGuy

    Oh, is a new Transformers movie coming out soon?

    • Daniel Rodriguez

      Yup Transformers: Age of Extinction premiers June 26, 2014.

      • Mac

      • Daniel Rodriguez

        Are you Christopher Nolan?

      • Werefon

        I am Pauly Shore!

      • Daniel Rodriguez

        Oh wow the duck billed platypus?!?

      • Werefon


      • Daniel Rodriguez

        Pauly you don’t remember your line from Bio Dome? Guess drugs have caught up with you man.

      • Werefon

        Don’t remember taking drugs! But I once met Encino Man. He was a cool dude but Everytime camera was on he played Dumb, never understood that.

      • Daniel Rodriguez

        I remember that guy believe his name was George. One of the last times I saw him he was swinging from trees in the jungle.

      • Werefon

        Last time i saw him he was in the documentary about Egyptian Mummys.

      • Daniel Rodriguez

        Oh that’s right, he had a shape shifting wife. She could go from really got to not so hot.

  • Strong Enough

    They should make the autobots go after the taliban. i mean they basically destroyed chicago. they owe us

  • Jotun

    Imagine Dragons…..ugh. I’ll just find joy in the fact that they will be gone in a few years just like every other mediocre flash in the pan pop band.

    • Werefon

      They had Linkin Park and now this…. Ehh, Linkins have a better thing to do ,I guess.

  • Werefon

    So Linkin Park just gave up making good music for it and they went for shitty Dragons? Wow, what a letdown.

  • DEADP00L

    They went from Linkin Park to crapfest Dragons – and they expect us to think this is a better movie?

    • PeadDool

      you mean linkin park – the band only bitchy teenage loosers listen to

      • DEADP00L

        Is that supposed to mean something? You’re bitching about teenagers bitching – classy.
