Twins gone from Transformers 3?

http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/...tm?csp=usat.me

Quote:
"One thing we're getting rid of is what I call the dorky comedy," Bay adds. So the twins, the two bumbling, slang-spewing robots? "They're basically gone," he says, though John Turturro returns for comic relief.
Quote:
While Optimus Prime, Megatron and even Sam all have died and been resurrected, di Bonaventura says this film will have no do-overs: Die, and that's it.
Looks like this could be a good movie

Those guys were asinine and ridiculous. My son loved them while I loathed them. I'm glad they're gone.

He was funny too....at least the first two times I saw the movie. Admittedly, he did get old kinda fast.

Ya, I'm with you on this one. Don't think I'll miss Megan Fox either, although I'm sure you guys will disagree on that one.

that lying piece of crap!!!

"As a trilogy, it really ends," he says. "It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending."

He promised he wasn't going to make a trilogy out of this. that he was going to keep evolving the story line and pushing it further and further as time goes on.

WTF!!!!! thank goodness the twins are gone. sucks that megan's leaving. but making a trilogy is whats going to kill this franchise for good. This genre had the chance to go onto be similar to the Alien saga with movies that were above and beyond. but no. its going to be a trilogy. he must think that he's created something akin to Star Wars....

So they walk around with a grease up face to keep that leather hard skin from cracking.

Hot as both can be in the right light n make up n lack of clothes, its as much of an illusion as the autobots.

Are they going to actually TRY with this installment? *yawn* The only redeeming quality of this trilogy is CAMARO...

And I gotta say, I hated those twins SO much... Made me want to punch babies

Could just be word play, the Aliens movies are like a trilogy, where its not straight line, they can go back or forward to fill in the puzzle/story line.

the new AVP was like SW1

Though Id like to see an Alien plant/home world movie.
With a Preditor evloution side by side almost like the new StarTrek with Spok n Kirk evloution till they cross paths.

AVP was not what it could have been, but it did help to "tie things together" amongst the two film sets.




AVP:R was like regurgitated leftovers



as far as wordplay, Bay said himself that he did not want to do a trilogy. because with a trilogy, you have 3 pieces of a pie. the first one is the greatest thing since sliced bread, the second one is crap and cant live up to the hype, and the third one is just enough to recover from how pitiful the second one was.

The one thing with the Alien saga (not counting AVP) was that individually, they were all great movies. you could watch each one without ever watching a previous (or later) one and it was a great experience. not so with movie setups that are set up as trilogies.

maybe its just the HUGE Transformers fan in me that doesnt want it to end. I dont know.

I didn't mind them. There were a few good quotes and I didn't find them obnoxious. I doubt we'll know anything solid about the movie until the few weeks before.
