Transformers – Age of Extinction


I don’t know how this one got by me, but I was not aware of this movie until a few minutes ago.  I just watched the trailer and I’m liking what I’m seeing.  Watch it now, then let’s talk:



Here’s what I like about what I’m seeing in this trailer.  I like that it’s missing Shia LaBeouf.  I also really like that it’s added Mark Wahlberg.  This one feels like it’s a legitimate movie.  The first 3 were ok.  It was a lot of eye candy, with the fancy Transformers and all of the awesome CGI that went into building them.  But I never felt invested in the plotline really.  It was just, let’s run around and save stuff and be corny.  This one has the feeling of a legitimate movie.  I know, I know it’s movie number 4.  I’m a little surprised they got Mark to sign onto a fourth movie, but he did and it looks pretty sweet.  I’m excited to see it and I’m surprised that I am.  So good job Hasbro!  Let’s see what you’ve got.

Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
