Open discussion about ILM and the magic they create. Also VFX and movies in general. Anyone can post topics here.

Looks pretty good VFX wise think its going to go out on a high note.

Oh no, this is not the end. Paramount is going to release a whole bunch more of these things. Next one up is Bumblebee, directed by Laika's Travis Knight. If anything, this franchise will keep ILM's renderfarms humming for years to come.
SPOILER ALERT: If you didn't enjoy any of the previous movies, then you probably won't enjoy this. If you did enjoy the previous movies...then your mileage may vary anyway.

I tend to enjoy most anything (I mean, after all, I like the first four Bayformers movies). But I can honestly say that this is the first time since Jurassic World that I left a movie with such an utter and overwhelming sense of disappointment. :e_sad:

With that said, there's pros and there's cons to TLK. I've always maintained that for these sequels, there are areas where they take a step forward and areas where they take a step back. And this is no different.

I'd be more than willing to have this be the end of the current model of Transformers movies and wait another 10 years for a reboot. The reboot will either be better made movies (which is good) or they'll be on par or worse than Bay's work (which means I will continue to laugh and drink the tears of angry nerds).

Bay suggests this is his last directional outing for a Transformers film.

He also expressed his uncertainty at returning for another one after the first movie.

And the second.

And the third.

And the fourth.


But when Paramount parks three dump trucks of gold bricks on your front lawn and starts unloading, it can be hard to say no.
