Hey everybody! Transformers 5 comes out this week! It's gonna earn the better part of, if not more than, a billion dollars!

Do we... do we care? I kind of want to care, but I can't seem to do so. I think that my expectation is that it'll be three hours of McGuffin chasing to stop the end of the world while we learn that the Transformers have secretly been intertwined with human history... just like the last four movies.

But as much as I'd like to see a different creative take on the live action stuff, they're not going to rock the boat while these things make a billion dollars each. Ho hum.

I'm definitely up for another two and a half hours of massive spectacle and huge explosions and increasingly ludicrous inattention to continuity.

Not even joking. Rewatched the first three yesterday and Marky Mark Meets the Dinobots tonight (not actually seen that one since the cinema) and time/distance has made them nowhere near as annoying as I expected.

Big dumb fun and I am happy for some more.

Yeah, I mean the big silly tentpole stuff is fine for what it is. It's just that... I dunno. With at least the first couple, I was intrigued with what they were going to do them, how certain characters would be adapted to film, and so on. For example, Hot Rod is supposedly one of the robots in this one, but I know from experience that that means very little by itself. It might be like Hot Rod, or it might just be a robot that's named Hot Rod that's in the background of a couple of scenes. So... the anticipatory magic is gone. For me, at least.

I'm looking forward to seeing where the "Prime goes into space to confront his creators" plot goes (seriously, I didn't even remember Age of Extinction ending with a sequel set-up).

As far as Hot Rod goes, I don't even bother learning the names of the Autobots. Do they have names? Have any of them had names? I remember one of them was called Ironhide and that Jazz got ripped in half in the first one. Beyond that, it's a shrug. Prime, Bumblebee and a random cast of jobbers has been the theme so far, and I'd expect that to continue.

I suppose I should be excited for this, but no, not really. The toys are simultaneously mostly awful, overpriced by $10 compared to every other line and pushing out the Titans Return stuff I actually like. And the movie itself is going to be an hour or more longer than it should be, full of characters that are either completely flat or annoying attempts at comic relief, with a plot that will be vaguely incoherent at best.

I'm sure I'll see it at some point, maybe even in theatres, but unless it gets really good reviews I honestly don't care very much about when or how.

's what I mean. For the first couple of movies, I remember being excited for [character] being rumored to show up, but experience has shown that the films (rightly) just do their own thing without worrying about previous entries. But the part of me that came to watch them with all the baggage of seeing previous iterations of the brand knows to not get too bothered. So what's left to get excited about is... big explosion summer tentpole feature.

...I do love me some Movie Prime something fierce, though...
