1 For the source material given, the Bay films managed to fuck this up. By trying to make us give a shit about the humans and their situations. I don't care about the military, I don't care about Sam's love interest or him trying to get a job and his life together, I don't care about the product placements and I simply don't care what it's trying to accomplish otherwise. It's basically about two warring factions of transforming robots, one fighting for total conquest and the other fighting for peace. Why is that so hard for Bay to comprehend? Oh right, because he's the same asshole who made Pearl Harbor, basically forcing a stupid romance triangle in a historic travesty. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on April 21, 2015, 8:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Here's the thing that got me about the Transformers movies. Their supporting characters in their own movies. The main characters are not the Autobots or the Decepticons. No it's Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro and later Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. They focused on the humans and not the giant alien robots in a million year civil war. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on February 26, 2015, 6:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Thanks to Kingbk, we now know all the negative stereotypes against Hollywood are true. You need to be one of the "right people" to get a job, you need to be scum to get ahead, and you need to treat others like scum to get ahead. I wouldn't go to L.A. if the rest of the world was buried under hot lava. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 17, 2011, 12:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 FF, you're listed at imdb.com??? That's f**king awesome, although it's not under your name here because I looked it up. Pelirojo, I forgot all about that but you're right, any idiot seemingly can make a video these days :-( But I still think the independent film company thing is a good idea because *somebody* has to save the human race from the garbage Hollywood is subjecting them to!!! And if this actually happens I want credit for the idea. Seriously. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 13, 2011, 5:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I took a screenwriting class and did a lot of video production, but was warned by all kinds of people about the incredible barriers and thus didn't even attempt "the dream". The idea of living in LA while having to constantly hustle yourself scared me. Although my dad is Jewish and I have the surname, so maybe I still have a shot. :) -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 12, 2011, 2:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Maybe because it came after my teens but I never had any interest in even the original deal. However; DolFan, while you make an interesting observation re our formerly 'connected' fellow posters, I'm not sure if they'd pull be able it off- especially considering how all the world's a YouTube ap these days! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 12, 2011, 1:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 @ DolFan316- "Wow!!! Who knew so many people here had tried to get work in Hollywood behind the scenes?" Yeah, and about all I have to show for it is a very succinct imdb.com listing and a couple of 'reels'.

9 Yeah. We can even form our own union. In 'The Biz' it will be affectionately known as The BOG (which stands for The Bitter Outsiders Guild). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 12, 2011, 9:16 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Wow!!! Who knew so many people here had tried to get work in Hollywood behind the scenes? You guys should form your own film company. I'm serious. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 11, 2011, 11:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 "...my chances of making it in the business were low unless I became gay, Jewish or started dating a daughter of one of the producers or executives...." LOL!!! Yeah, see my problem was I'm heterosexual, Presbyterian and married. I was doomed from the get-go. LOL! But, on a serious note, I'm sorry to hear things didn't work out for you. I both know and feel your pain. But, there is life after Hollywood- and it's fantastic! :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 11, 2011, 11:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Fredrich and Traveltron, you both make very true assessments of "the business." When I first moved down to L.A. about four years ago, I took a job as a script consultant. Being a screenwriter had always been something of interest to me, so I thought doing a job where I got to read screenplays and give them coverage (notes, feedback and suggestions to the producers, who ended up 9 times out of 10 not even looking at my comments and still throwing the script in the trash sight unseen) would be perfect. One of the guys I worked with who was in the creative department agreed that he'd help me out with my own screenplay, so a few months into working he and I went to lunch. He basically told me straight up that I wrote a good script and he liked the story, but that it would be impossible to sell. He said even if it was sold, it likely would be optioned indefinitely and sit in "developmental hell" for five years before they would let the option go and it would never hit the screen. He said that described 90% of the working screenwriters in Hollywood. He told me likely if they liked my writing they'd hire me to do a draft of some big time franchise they have the rights to and likely that draft would be rewritten a number of times by other writers, directors, producers and actors and in the end the likelihood of my name even ending up in the credits is slim to none. In a nutshell, he said that since I wasn't in the inner circle and since I wasn't a mean guy (who would gossip, lie and cheat to get in the door) that my chances of making it in the business were low unless I became gay, Jewish or started dating a daughter of one of the producers or executives. He straight up told me that. I appreciate his honesty. After a few more months at the job, I saw all the wrinkles and ugliness of Hollywood and was pretty much turned off completely from "the biz." Now I'm leaving L.A. for good in a few weeks and I know that Hollywood is a disgusting, broken system that is ruled by a similar "good ol' boys" club that you find in many small towns. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 11, 2011, 11:29 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Talentless people being passed over those with talent because they have famous or rich parents? Paris Hilton comes to mind. But I agree with everyone. Most movies nowadays seem to lack quality and cater to those with a short attention span and low standards for quality. Also, if the best some of these people can do is make classic cartoons into live-action movies, they're in the wrong job. I mean, kids in cosplay could do that, without charging $10 a ticket to watch. I guess if you want something done you gotta do it yourself. I hope these independent filmmakers can do animated films: by which, I mean classic 2D animation. CGI movies used to be groundbreaking. Now they have people going, "Ugh, ANOTHER CGI movie?" That's because the animated movie department is hyper-saturated with them. Which is not helped by the fact that most live-action movies use CGI imagery one way or another. You no longer see classic animated movies, only CGI films, of which most are mediocre. Unfortunately, they feel pretty 3D images will compensate for the pathetic storyline. Does nobody know how to draw anymore? I guess not, and in the process, they forgot how to write as well. Like Dolfan, I don't watch movies at theatres anymore unless they are really good. The last one I watched was The Princess and the Frog, partly to show classic animation fans still exist. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 11, 2011, 10:42 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Now granted, that's not to say that children of movie stars are talentless morons as a rule. I think there have been a FEW kids of movie stars who have gone on to have successful careers of their own. And hell if my mom or dad had some pull in Hollywood- I'd be a fool not to use it. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 11, 2011, 9:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Having spent some time in my past trying to break into 'the biz' in Hollywood, I must say that your assessment of how things work there aren't far off the mark. In my experience, it was very frustrating to work my @$$ off to be the best I could be at what I did- only to get passed over in hiring by some dimwit kid of a movie/tv star who had only half the skills I had and olny got hired because of their name or because mommy or daddy pulled a few strings to get junior a job in the business and keep them out of trouble. Frustrating, to say the least and why I got out of 'the biz' entirely. In Hollywood, the pathway to success isn't always what you know- it's either who you know/date/are related to. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 11, 2011, 9:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 And Hollywood is such a closed circle of incestuous non-creativity. My dad keeps telling me, "You could write a better Transformers movie. Why don't you write one for them?" The thing is, there are all kinds of obstacles that all but keep out "outsiders" from their little clique-- Unions being the main one. If I send out a spec script to someone they will just throw it away without even reading it because of all the rules, rules made to keep the same old hack writers, directors, and actors in power and keep new challengers out. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 11, 2011, 1:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Um...you didn't exactly do a great job of disproving my point. LOL But I'll amend it to no more Hollywood movies ever, how's that? I *suppose* independent films can still be made. BTW I've seen maybe 3 movies in the theater in the last decade. I only own about 5-6 DVDs as well. It's just not worth it to me. I do watch DVDs at the houses of friends, and some of the movies don't completely suck or anything, but they're still not something I'd ever buy. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 10, 2011, 7:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 You're entitled to your opinion, DolFan. I wouldn't go so far to say that I think there should never be movies again. I like movies. I've got a huge collection of DVDs. I'm tired of the recent amount of crap that Hollywood has been releasing. It's very little substance with mostly crude jokes, dumb pop culture references, sex, violence, product placement and explosions for little to no purpose. If these are used to advance a story or develop a character, great. 9 times of a 10 these days, they aren't. And Hollywood is an exclusive club with only a few players with names like Hanks, Speilberg, Abrams, Weinstein, Katzenburg, etc. They decide what goes on the screen and most of the time it's sequels, comic book movies, remakes, or taking something from another decade and making a movie out of it. In the late 90s, they did this with things from the 50s and 60s (Brady Bunch, Leave it to Beaver), in the early 2000s, they did this with the 70s (Starsky and Hutch, Charlie's Angels, etc.) and now they are obsessed with everything 80s. Soon, it will be the 90s. Hollywood KNOWS they release crap. A few years ago, they agreed to go from 5 best picture nominations to 10. Recently, they went back down to 5 because they know there isn't anywhere close to 10 quality films being produced a year and that's pathetic. For every great movie that gets made these days, like a "King's Speech" or a "Doubt" or a "Little Miss Sunshine," there are 100 others that are pure garbage. You go to the theaters and the crowds reflect this garbage: they throw food, talk with their friends, push on the chairs in front of them, text, etc. It's awful. I only go to the theater now when a really good movie is out and that's probably once every 2-3 months. Usually, the crowds are classy and behaved, and I feel good about spending the ridiculous $10 for the film. Until people stop going to the theater, Hollywood will continue to produce crap after crap. Even in this supposed "down economy", they are racking in the dough and breaking records. I wish someone outside the Hollywood machine would step up and find another way of bringing quality films to people because I wish there was more reasons for me to go to the movies. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 10, 2011, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Hollywood keeps whining that if kids keep downloading movies, there won't be any more. I also wonder if that would really be such a bad thing. The Hollywood blockbusters and multi-million dollar movie stars could theoretically die out, but I think the independent films would still continue. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 10, 2011, 5:58 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I'm honestly in favor of not making ANY more movies altogether. I just don't see the point. If anything movies these days are ruining society on multiple levels and have created an entire class of spoiled brats who think they're living gods and goddesses. It's not as if movies today are entertaining. Well, maybe to 13-year olds but why should they be allowed to dictate what the rest of us are forced to watch? I'm tired of it. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 10, 2011, 2:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
