It would seem with this installment of Transformers, many critics sought to create a backlash against the backlash, insisting that many criticisms against the films and franchise were too harsh, and that the films weren’t THAT bad. Some people even said they were good.

It would also seem, with the box office draw of Transformer: Age of Extinction, that the public doesn’t care about that. Because the fourth installment pulled in about $100 million this weekend (exact figures should come out tomorrow), which is just a few million less than the previous iteration, Dark of the Moon.

Of course, that can’t totally be chalked up to the public’s indifference to whether or not the films are any good. They could have just like this one slightly less because a) they might be a little tired of Transformers movies, and b) they might have a Shia Labeouf-sized hole in their heart that needs filling, and Mark Wahlberg, the new star of the franchise, is no Shia LaBeouf.

But honestly, I’m thinking people just might be a little more tired of Transformers than they were last time around.

If you were asked to give the indie-pop equivalent of Michael Bay, you probably wouldn’t get too ridiculed for tossing out Imagine Dragons. They’re bombastic, they don’t really stand for anything of substance, and their ubiquity drives people batshit insane.

SOOOOOOOOOOO…

It should come as little surprise that the band has been tapped to create some original material for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Here’s the cheesy, Nickelback-worthy trailer for their involvement.

And here’s what Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age thinks of Imagine Dragons.

Mark Wahlberg Has Said Some Unintentionally Funny Things About The New ‘Transformers’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-wahlberg-has-said-some-unintentionally-funny-things-about-the-new-transformers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-wahlberg-has-said-some-unintentionally-funny-things-about-the-new-transformers/#comments Tue, 25 Mar 2014 17:21:51 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=260484 He's the one talkin' here. Not you, not you, and not you!

Mark Wahlberg says a lot of unintentionally funny stuff. Anything he says is unintentionally funny if you remember to say it in his voice. So when he says the new Transformers film, which he’s starring in, will be “bigger and better than the other three combined,” a writer with editorial authority decides, “Yes. This is news.”

And then you wonder what kind of calculator can sum up the bigness and goodness of three old Transformers.

“For moviegoers all over the world, I guarantee this will take it up a notch.”

HOW BIG IS A NOTCH, MARK?

Transformers is “probably the most iconic franchise in movie history.”

ONLY PLANET OF THE APES COMES CLOSE, MR. WAHLBERG.

“This will be the biggest movie of 2014.”

Sadly, that’s probably true.

Michael Bay is back with more confusing heaps of metal banging into each other. But this time there are subtle differences. For instance, Mark Wahlberg is now the guy yelling things at the robots and Optimus Prime rides a robot dinosaur while swinging a huge sword. Like I said, subtle.
