TRANSFORMERS 5: THE LAST KNIGHT – HOT ROD REVEALED!

LOOKY HERE!! I GET IT!!! The Bay Films will never be G1 or any other incarnation of Transformers, but what they are unto themselves. I look at all 4 live action TF films as FUN SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER ACTION FILMS…. with very poorly written narratives. Let’s face it Bay relies on BIG ASSPLOSIONS <— yes I said that right. more so than a decent story. In TF1 they had Darius McRary voice Jazz… Eddie Flippin’ Winslow from FAMILY MATTERS!! Sure would I have loved Phil Lamarr doing a Scatman Cruthers… YES, but Darius did a damn good job voicing Jazz. NEXT YEAR it’ll be TEN YEARS since TF1… I’m OVER the fact that Optimus has freakin’ FLAMES! As the Bayverse has gone on these almost ten years….. Bay himself has modified and homaged various story bits and design elements to give us fan service. DO I WANT A BAY TF FILM TO BE NOTHING BUT FAN SERVICE… NO!!!! In the beginning I saw an interview with Bay where he said the fans… meh whatever, I’m doing what I want. Or something to that effect…. Yet over time he has learned that appeasing the fans in just ONE SMALL WAY helps him shoot for his wallet just a bit more.

In AOE they introduced Hound voiced by John Goodman, and honestly I loved that. TF 5 the last knight is coming and HOT ROD has been revealed. I get it you really can’t adapt Roddy’s G1 car design to be a real life thing, and actually work. BUT DOES HE NEED A BEE FACE??? I mean cmon!!! MAKE IT UNIQUE DAMNIT. My only hope with Roddy being in TF5 is they get either Judd Nelson or Dick Gautier to voice him. I can DEAL with the Bay Designs but getting one or the other of those men to voice the character would be the HOMAGE I would want. I’m not saying GEEE WUUUNNN FOREVER NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!!! I’m saying it’s nice to HAVE ONE LITTLE THING in your giant ASSPLOSION FILLED film that was from where it all started. OK RANT OVER!! Now feast yer eyes on HOT ROD!
