I actually like Imagine Dragons, so I like that they are working on the movie, but Skrillex? Really? Well, I guess it suits the EXPLOSIONS in this movie, so, it should fit in well...

Not going to bother seeing this one. Whole movie looks like a deleted scene from transformers 3. The first movie was fun, the 2nd was mildly entertaining, the 3rd just gave me a headache.
Mirage19 - 5/30/2014, 2:53 PM
@SameOldThhing you people don't know how to not click on things you don't like just [frick]ing leave and if its truly shit just like you are why woulds you come here.

No lie....

When the "DUBSTEP" phase(or any other kind of techno i can't distinguish the genres so IDGAF) started. I used to tell some of my friends who liked it that it sounded like 2 Transformers (frick)ing. It all comes full circle...

So they hired a guy who knows how to put spoons in blenders...

Spoons in a blender..... LMFAO

Proof read your comments before you post them.
Your speaking jibberish.

I'm entitled to my opinions skippy.
Transformers as a toyline & cartoons were cool then these movies crapped on it.
BlazinTexan - 5/30/2014, 3:16 PM
lol what a joke
LAsBruceWayne - 5/30/2014, 3:16 PM


Sorry couldn't resist hahaha.. BTW I'm a horrible speller.. So I have no room to talk
KingOnslaught - 5/30/2014, 3:16 PM
Expect the dubstep to be just as annoying as it was in TASM 2

Spelling is not the Mirage's comment.
It's not the grammar,it's difficult to read the mashed up sentences.

Typos are a non-issue...issue is how weak these films are.
First & foremost the terrible robot designs & secondly the mind numbing stories.
Awful franchise that needs to die...well REBOOT.

@SameOldThing jibberish really so you saying crap means that you do like it so that's what your telling me.I never even said anything about it what kind of logic is it to go to something you don't like what are you [frick]ing stupid.Again like most people on this website you don't have to go to something if YOU YOU YOU don't [frick]ing like and and yes I said you 3 times.
LAsBruceWayne - 5/30/2014, 3:29 PM


Bruh... You have like no commas. You put your periods in random places. & you're defending with all your might the Transformers franchise.

YOU YOU YOU need to get your life together haha.
sameoldthing - 5/30/2014, 3:31 PM
Calm down you clown.
Please stop running your sentences together.
Hard to read,that's the jibberish.

Listen,I like Transformers. I think they should be depicted in films correctly.
The past movies are crap & adding Skrillex to the movies is like taking a shit on another pile of shit.

I'm not going to NOT comment on ridiculous stuff like this.
If you like Transformers pal..You deserve better.
sameoldthing - 5/30/2014, 3:37 PM
Thanks pal..Mirage types wild,Ha!

Dude,imagine a scene in a GOOD Transformers movie where RATM's
"Know Your Enemy" comes on & an epic robot fight breaks out!

Sadly,we get random noises of Skrillex while walking trash heap robots explode.

This [frick]er dated Ellie [frick]ing Goulding.

And I adore Ellie.
Niklander - 5/30/2014, 3:53 PM

KnobGoblin - 5/30/2014, 3:53 PM

Mirage19 - 5/30/2014, 3:56 PM

AlexanderLykins - 5/30/2014, 3:59 PM
Cool I guess. Imagine Dragons and Skrillex are decent listens.

Jaspion - 5/30/2014, 4:02 PM
Well I guess I'm the only one here who likes Skrillex. Don't care about this movie though.

But yeah, Skrillex and Transformers totally make sense,to them some time to work togheter.
MetropolisKid - 5/30/2014, 4:41 PM
I don't get why everyone is hating on skillex..

I'm looking forward to thisssssss
MikeZ - 5/30/2014, 4:43 PM
Dump on Skrillex all you want, one of his tracks appeared in Wreck It Ralph

Scorpion8125 - 5/30/2014, 4:49 PM
Forget the sounds. It's the smell you gotta worry about.

Sounds like this is gonna smell like shit.
ObviousTheCaptain - 5/30/2014, 6:09 PM

BRAVO !!! Please take the day off... Because you just killed it :D
Gohan - 5/30/2014, 6:58 PM
Does anybody remeber when skrillex was in that crappy emo band ugh . He,ll never make good music i swear ! But anyways this movie looks fun i guess
stuntman180 - 5/30/2014, 7:16 PM
@MarvelsDarkKnight You're an idiot. He's doing the SOUND DESIGN, NOT composing the score. You wont hear dubstep, you'll hear robot noises. Which i'm surprised no one likes this news considering you all think his music sounds like robots and what not. He's perfect for this. The sounds are going to be amazing. I can't speak for the movie itself, but if there's one thing Oscar worthy about the Transformers movies, that would be the sound effects.

mgeoff88 - 5/30/2014, 10:36 PM
To paraphrase Grif, shit music.
loki668 - 5/31/2014, 1:08 AM
Who better to create the sound of Transformer flatulence?
DaniDeSanta - 5/31/2014, 1:17 AM
That's cool. Love Skrillex!!!
