Transformers 2 title?

Jun. 5, 2008by: Dave Davis
Fans of the first TRANSFORMERS movie probably care more about the impending rematch between huge vehicular robots than what that clash will be called, but director/destructor Michael Bay has clarified the sequel's subtitle:

DreamWorks/Paramount has apparently confirmed this title to Coming Soon. But then, Bay claimed early in the process that he intended to disseminate as much misleading info as possible on the sequel, so we'll see if the pulpy title sticks. Does it have any particular meaning to fans of the 'toon and toys?

Extra Tidbit: Why was Optimus Prime so damn sure he'd have to sacrifice himself by putting the cube in his chest, when all it took was The Beef pointing it at Megatron? And why am I questioning the logic of a Michael Bay movie?

While Transformers was for me just a fine if slightly overlong popcorn flick, one thing I did think was a little unsettling was they went out of their way to get Hugo Weaving to voice Megatron, and then killed him off pretty darn fast. No biggie, but the kind of thing that, unless he does come back, makes that investment sound pretty pointless.

Okay...

I dug the fights in Transformers, but I can't stand some of the stuff like Megan Fox's acting. As far as I can tell this title indicates that Megatron isn't really dead (I don't think anyone believed he was).

the title

Why have the 2 if it's going to have a subtitle? just leave it as 'Transformers 2' or 'Transformers: Revenge of the fallen' plus this title is kind of a spoiler in a way since it's stating that the fallen (Decepticons) will have their revenge, so does this mean that the fallen robots aren't really fallen but very much alive and are seeking revenge on the Autobots? I don't know...but I'm ok with the subtitle, still looking foward to this.

Sounds like

the title of a metal album.

I don't really give a shit what it's called, as long as it doesn't blow. Just lay on the awesome robots, megan fox hotness, and the beef's likeability, and I'm game.

I'm not really for or against Transformers. I thought it was entertaining, but it wasn't my favorite film. Then again, I wouldn't say it sucked. Still, I REALLY think that title is fake. It just seems like Michael Bay warned us about fake material and this would be a perfect opportunity to fool us.

DAMN THAT JUST RUINED IT....

I'm not sure how anyone could purely hate Transformers when it's uber-awesome, and I'm pretty sure the sequel will be uber-awesome as well, but if there's anything that can damage this movie, I think it's this lame-ass corny title. I highly doubt they'll stick with it. I'm sure something cooler will pop up soon enough. Who the f**k thought of the above title anyway? George Lucas? I suggest don't call it anything, just Transformers II. That's good enough. But then again, who listens to my
