Transformers The Last Knight Honest Trailer

Michael Bay has supposedly delivered his last effort behind the camera for the Transformers franchise, and he pulled out all the stops to make this one the most insane, self-indulgent, nonsensical, inconsistent, blockbuster bonanza. Transformers: The Last Knight has everything but the kitchen sink, and even if it had the kitchen sink, it would transform into a racist caricature of whatever new car General Motors wants to have a two and a half hour advertisement for this year.

Transformers: The Last Knight was the #1 movie voted on by Screen Junkies fans to get the Honest Trailer treatment this month, and they do their best to focus on all the most ridiculous parts of this movie, of which there are many. Oh, and keep an eye out for a cameo from one of our articles featured prominently at the beginning of this video! Read More »

peter cullen interview

Voice actor Peter Cullen has been playing Optimus Prime, the righteous leader of the Autobots, for over 30 years. After originating the character in 1984 with the original Transformers animated series, he has returned him countless times in the decades since, playing Optimus in TV shows, video games, and even Michael Bay’s live-action movies. While he’s played plenty of other characters over the years, Cullen is forever tied to this iconic warrior robot.

And if you talk to him, he seems perfectly okay with that. Cullen is back as Optimus Prime in Transformers: Titans Return, an animated internet web series that acts as a sequel to the Transformers: Combiner Wars series. You can watch the show on go90 right now. But first, why not join us for a little chat with Cullen, where he talks about his personal connection with Optimus, the state of the voice over industry, and the passion project he’s working on with NASA.

See the details involving the Optimus Prime Bumblebee spin-off news below.
