IGN Video Commentary

I guess more for your amusement then anything, here is a video commentary from IGN as they attempt to dissect the new trailer. The idea is excellent just that those doing the talking are clearly not up on the latest and greatest Transformer 2 info (guess they don't read this blog). Thanks to Brian and DeceptiFreak for the link.

  5. Interesting idea about Arcee being at the garage Mikeala is working at. I could actaully see that making sense.

    Those guys messed up quite a few transformers. That wasn't Alpha Trion that was Jetfire.Fun to watch in the end.

  6. I frequent IGN a lot... and I didn't even know this crap was up until earlier today. Someone commented on it in the Transformer Movie forum thread and then I checked it out (which I said I wouldn't).

    Honestly... I don't get how they concluded the half of what they did. They describe Ironhide as the fight is going in slow mo... and you can clearly see that it isn't Ironhide based on their own description...

    They brought a lot of people out of the woodwork... asking all sorts of questions, at least. Sadly... they didn't accomplish it in a very good way. It's the most active the TF movie forum has been in awhile though. I don't feel like I'm completely by myself now, at least.

    Sites/Blogs like this make IGN look absolutely horrible. Keep up the good work! IGN is basically imploding, thanks to incompetent reporters like Gilchrist and the like.

  10. this video was so awesome

    its like I made my grandma watch the trailer once and report to me everything she saw

    "well sonny there were these shiny robuts and I think Optimus Ptome and Ironhide were fighting"

    ReplyDelete
  11. that was supposed to say "prime" i was off one key to the right

  12. That yellow bot isn't rampage. I know because if you look closely he has wheels while rampage has the treads.

    ReplyDelete
  13. In the desert were Sam and Mekala were jumping, that wasn't Rampage that was Scrapper. And Optimus fighting what you think was Ironhide was Blackout, duh.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow these guys aren't that bright.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It gets better... the morons now wrote an article... more or less bashing people for the feedback that they sent in. Really bad form... and I was kind of offended as to how the writer went about it.

  16. haha, the only thing they could have done that was worse than that video was defend it with "we're too busy to know all these things you NERDS"

    ReplyDelete
  17. OMFG.....I normaly dont brake for rats when they cross the street. These 2 guys are really giving me the creeps so i hope they dont cross the streets when i am driving around there neighbourhood.

    Damnnnn even my sister laughed of her ass because of their stupid stupid really stupid stupid trailer breakdown

  18. Perfect example of noobs who call themselves TransFans because they liked the special effects of the first movie. One time in class we were talking about the summer movies and someone said, "You know what I want to see? The new Transformers!" followed by a dozen or so "yeas" and it moved on from there. I sat in the back corner scowling at them because I knew at least half of them didn't know anything about it other than the first movie.

    I was kind of mad when they said Sideways was an Autobot before but after seeing this, I know they are just mislead. Since both Blackout and Ironhide were in the first movie, how did they mix them up in the trailer?! And that yellow bot behind Sam and Mikaela is Scrapper.

    Lastly btw, that was me posting as Anonymous last night because AIM login didn't work. Anyone IM me sometime ok?

  19. Dang.....if you're going to comment on the trailer, at least know what the heck you are talking about. They were so off on many things it really wasn't even funny.

    Prime fighting Ironhide?? Huh?

    The picture when Sam is having his visions is The Fallen. The robot also "appearing" is The Fallen.

    And the two that you see fighting the soldiers in the one clip are still in their Protoform mode. Also, the one gets smoked pretty good.

    Come one guys. Get it together.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah guys,damn. Those morons over at IGN know nothing about Transformers and nothing about the movie.They obviously don't read this blog.

    I used to check IGN first for movie news,but not for the last year anymore.First I always check ComingSoon.net.

    MP

  21. ".. and in this shot we have Prime fighting Ironhide. This is based on his toy mode is kind of this.. truck.. And you can clearly see his propellers on his arm, that he has in his.. truck mode...."

    TF2 is going to be the big tie-in movie, game, comic, toy, book, multi-media dynamo for this year, easily beating Terminator. These guys should be WAY more on top of what's going on with this movie.

    I'm sorry but these guys are getting paid decent money to know this stuff and not make their organization look like half-assed idiots. This will forever put a tarnish on the image of IGN in my eyes.

    Those bastards, how dare they have a casual interest in something you obsess over

  23. Honestly... MP... I think I'm pretty close to finding myself a new place to general movie news as well. I really don't like IGN much to begin with anyways. Why I bother with them still is beyond me. And the forum community that IGN has is pretty horrible too. With only a handfull of people I actually like there... again... I don't know why I bother.

    And I would have to agree with you as well, Chief. Funny thing is... I responded to the article they wrote, the one I linked to earlier. And I was priviledged to actually get the writer himself to respond in an attempt to justify what he said. All I can do at this point is roll my eyes. IGN has some of the worst writers.

  24. I feel so insulted about the fact that thoses jackasses got the names wrong. And Prime fighting Ironhide? Idiots!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, I'm sure Blogmaster Supreme won't mind me plugging other sites in a non-TF capacity. As far as general movie sites go, slashfilm.com can't really be beat. Aintitcoolnews.com is good for movies and general geekiness, and a site called latinoreview.com has decent updates, but with a very snarky angle to the writing. I'd plug my own site blurrededgemagazine.com but we're kind of on a "getting ready for launch hiatus" at the moment and nothing is getting updated.

    In all honesty, out of every blog community that I've been a part of, TFLive really takes the cake for camaraderie, info, and good discussion. Kudos to the Blogmaster!

  26. wow. after i started to read some of the comments here i decided to NOT delete the video and have decided to save it so I can show their sons and grandsons what goobers they stem from...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am so glad to see you guys put this up. I really was going to mail you just so that you could get a laugh!

    That IGN video was a joke. And absolutely pathetic. Honestly, they didn't know what the hell they were talking about. My fiance who never have seen the old cartoon, never saw the old '86 movie knew who the Fallen was, and who Jetfire (who's her favorite by the way), and the Twins and also was smart enough to say, "Ironhide is a Autobot! Thats Blackout, you idiot". Those guys should be shot.

    At least IGN could have picked some Transformers fans to do the commentary. Most of us, if not half of us could have did that video 10x's better than they did.

    But enough of my rant. I still think it was worth a good laugh and a "WTF!!". Screw IGN, its all about Transformerslive.blogspot.com !!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree with everyone that has said this is a terrible synopsis. Confusing Ironhide with Blackout/Grindor is one of the dumbest things ever, and it completely invalidates any other correct point.

    PLEASE do not post anything else by these guys, a casual fan might see this and think they are correct!

    ReplyDelete
  29. ok, after this video the constructicons can be officialy renamed confusicon, not that they have mistaken all the constructicons, but even the
    rest of the transformers...

    ReplyDelete
  30. something much better than that can come out of this blog...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Snortpocket?? go back to your first post and please tell us what actually are ROBUTS

    ReplyDelete
  32. What do you all expect?! It came from IGN.COM, not transformerslive.blogspot.com!! NOt everyone knows every detail about these bots doofs!!

    duude relax, thers nothing wrong with them just liking the movie, i personally like generation 1 and the films, does that make me an unworthy fan??? no. just chill dude

  34. SIDESWIPE??!!??? Oh my God that guy is an idiot!

    And when was Arcee ever a Motorcycle in the animated series? (unless they mean the one that came out after the first one in 2007)

    ReplyDelete
  35. When I was a kid... I stopped watching Transformers when they killed Optimus in the old movie. I was one of those kids who got really upset about it

    I hope they don't make the same mistake of killing him off in this one. I would be done with Transformers again lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know that we all comment on post here that are off the wall or just flat out wrong, the next time somebody leaves a retarted post just remember it could be worse we could have people from IGN writing posts........AND MAYBE WE HAVE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. -I hope they don't make the same mistake of killing him off in this one. I would be done with Transformers again lol-

    Dont worry even if OP dies he will be resurected in the third film. I would rather have him die now and be resurected rather than have him die in the third without bay signing on for a sequel :O

  38. I am glad there are like minded people who thought they were wrong and I appreciate y'all voicing it here or anywhere! TF fans rock!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I just got back from reading the article on IGN about all the people that wrote in with the corrections to the video review, and the guy that wrote the article is a little b***h calling all the people that wrote in little geeks and also saying they didn't have time to get everything wright cause they are too busy over at IGN......um isn't that their job! that's like me being a bartender(which I am)and not knowing how to make a long island iced tea, then making one and having that person complain that it's wrong and me telling him I was to busy to make it wright...HUH? sorry for the long post.

    ReplyDelete

    duude read again, they refer to themselves as geeks as well, they call us the "true geeks" because we are, we are the transformer geeks, theyre... idk videogame nerds or some shit

    How my grandma and a lot of other old people pronounce 'robots'? you probably should have been able to figure that out from context, but apparently you're a dumbass

    Was reading their apology post, it's pathetic how the "apologized". I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here, but Transformers fans are as loyal and demanding as any cartoon fans out there. IGN can bite my shiny metal *ss and never expect me to use their site for anything ever again.

  45. @ Anonymous on 5/07/2009 1:11 AM...

    If they're "video game nerds" they shouldn't really be doing articles on movies. That's called spreading yourself too thin.

    Anyways... the Anonymous on 5/07/2009 12:50 AM pretty much hit the nail right on the head with their bartender example. If you can't put in the research and effort... why bother calling yourself whatever it is they try and call themselves (reporter I guess would be the general term)?

    I probably would've overlooked the geek comments... had they of not made horrible excuses for their misinformation. Despite some of their misinformation being completely idiotic. I don't even think they believe themselves when they said Prime was hitting Ironhide.

    ReplyDelete
  46. God damnit. They don't know shit!

    ReplyDelete
  47. "Do, or do not", if you can't do something right, then don't even bother doing it...

    ReplyDelete
  48. FUCKING IDIOTS in this trailer most transfans will see clearly who they are and with got this fuckers talking shit in this trailer you'll see Optimus Megatron The constructicons Bumblebee Devastator Jetfire even Soundwave... again FUCKING IDIOTS !!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The sad thing is -- and this is why I say you can't be too hard on them -- they probably still know more than the average moviegoer does about TF. Sometimes it can forget that the entire world doesn't have the uber-knowledge about TF that us mega geeks do.

    Still, a couple of things they said were just idiotic, like suggesting that Prime was fighting Ironhide.

    Overall a fun watch. But yeah, most of the people who will be sitting in the theater with you this June will likely be even more clueless than this.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Prime doesn't die in TF2 no way! We've already seen the toys where he combines with jetfire to form some super bot! has that been disproven or what?

    ReplyDelete
  51. OMG I just got done watching this video. THOSE TWO GUYS ARE IDIOTS! First of all, it is obvious the robot knocking over the American Flag is not Sideswipe. He was NOT fighting Megatron. The robot in Sams hallucination was obviously NOT Megatron, Prime was NOT fighting Ironhide. THAT was the most idiotic part when he paused it at a frame where it very much looks NOTHING like ironhide. That is when I stopped it because I could not watch anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What is funny about the whole part where they thought Prime was fighting Ironhide is that they paused it at a spot where you can see a rotor coming down off his back. And the scene DIRECTLY after that, which obviously is part of that same fight scene, shows the exact same robot, but this time you can clearly see the helicopter blades. And Ironhide is NOT an SUV. He is a truck.

    ReplyDelete
  53. LOL, the funniest part was when they paused it on OP's face and called him Megatron. LOL!!!

    But really, it's not that serious...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I could see the 3 motorcycle autobots in the first trailer along with the showest footage, what these guys missed that?? Hello?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm 50% blind and even I can see the difference between Ironhide and Blackout.

    Wait a minute! Nerds from a massive nerd site like ign.com are calling other people nerds because they did a shitty job and they are too busy playing on XBOX Live?
