some people prefer less explosions more plot.


For what purpose? What do you get out of a plot? You can't see a plot. So why come watch a movie if that's all you want?


It's a matter of enjoying something more on an intellectual level vs. a more visual level. Movies that are are low plot/high effects are primarily meant to be enjoyed as spectacles of the eye. I still believe anyone who expected otherwise of the Transformers films was barking up the wrong tree.

At the same time, some people perfer movies that surprise them with twists and turns in the story or deeper mysteries. These kinds of films usually have action and spectacle take a back seat. Mind you there's nothing wrong with enjoying one over the other, or even both together.

The idea that the Transformers films are bad due to not being focused on plot is just asinine. I perfer many plot heavy films, but sometimes I just wanna see all the pretty lights too. :P

Nico wrote:The problem is that if that eventually it will be hard to top the previous ones if a movie attempt to be smaller in scope. To give examples, once you stand on galaxies or crush the sun with a huge hammer, its hard to top stuff like that.


While I disagree with you on the quality of the films, I'm happy to say you have a very good taste in anime. ;)

Lemme just add I'm glad Bay's ending the series at three films. Film series generally go bad after three films, so a new story will do the franchise good.

The surprises only surprise you the first time you watch it. Then it gets boring watching the same "twist" take place over and over again.

Usually it's about elements of the plot requiring multiple viewings to get things you may have missed. Not overt things but subtle stuff that might surprise you. This goes hand in hand with why more action filled films are open to repeat viewings, so you can "see the awesome" again. Each has it's own reason to be viewed over and over.

I don't want to presume how experienced you are with watching films, but it sounds like if you gave less action oriented films a chance you'd still enjoy them. 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Elizabeth and Stalker are some of my favorites that are highly atmosphereic.

People who talk about how "deep" Blade Runner is really need to go read the fraking book it was based on. You'll never enjoy the movie again.

After reading adaptations and such, I'm confident this will be the best of the three. Hopefully I'm not eating my words next week...

Well honestly I'm thinking about skipping it because of how bad the second movie was and thus far trailers haven't changed my mind. I mean really I think the only thing I`ll enjoy are the action sequences and I don't feel like dealing with the rest.. I dunno maybe I`ll give it a rent when it comes out and skip to the action scenes.. (Please forgive me if I sound shallow)

This might just be one of the biggest brain poppers I've ever read.

The first movie had no plot. Glasses? eBay? Really?
The second movie had a plot. The critics and some fans didn't like it, but it was certainly better than the first, which is why I can watch it repeatedly.
The third will be the best of them, storywise. I can't imagine sitting through a movie that's nothing but explosions and special effects.

It would be like sitting through a continuous lightsaber battle that never ends, going on for 2.5 hours. Oh joy.

The difference in plots is that the first was campy and fun. The second wasn't.

No the difference is you chose to ignore that there was a plot due to your dislike of the film. If you honestly believe it had no plot then you have a very slim grasp on how storytelling works.

As for your Bladerunner comment, I've read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. I wasn't impressed.

Let me bulletpoint it for you:

1. Sam absorbs cube knowledge.
2. Decepticons go after Sam.
3. Optimus dies protecting Sam.
4. Sam seeks out Simons for info on the symbols and how to read them.
5. They learn of Transformers hiding on Earth for centuries.
6. Wheelie says these Transformers can read Ancient Cybertronian, points them to Jetfire.
7. Jetfire translates the symbols, sets Sam and co. on their mission.
8. Simons calls Lennox while they search for the doorway.
9. They find the doorway and the Tomb of the Primes.
8. Sam and co. make their way to Lennox as the final battle is joined.
9. Sam dies, meets the Primes, and is ressurected with the Matrix.
10. Sam revives Optimus.
11. Optimus kills the Fallen.

That's the simple version, so it should be easy for even you to read. :roll:

I just watched a slew of Lightsaber battles on Youtube. I watched them out of order, in chronological order, and one thing became quickly apparent...too much of a good thing.

I started watching the clock. It starts out great, just like a bowl of your favorite sugar laden, marshmallow filled cereal. Then, you start to notice "hmm, probably shouldn't have that last bowl, but it's oh so good...", so you go ahead and have more. When it's all said and done, you have gunk left in your bowl, God knows what in your stomach, and a feeling of "Wow. That really kinda sucked after awhile."

I had to stop watching them because it was starting to get ridiculous.

A movie needs a plot. Really, it does.

And, all of this Lightsaber viewing made me realize that Lucas really kinda lost his way. I mean, dang, some of that was utter crap. =\

It has nothing to do with plot. Someone says they can't believe people let the stupid plot of the first movie slide, I'm saying it's easy to because it was a fun movie.

There's no need for immature insults, not liking a book is no more an indication of intelligence than not liking waffles.

Anyway, nothing has changed my mind on seeing DotM. I wanted to see it the second after I saw RotF and that hasn't changed.

Behave yourself. You're skating on thin ice with comments like that.

Though I must say thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You've proven yourself with the above comment to be unqualified to argue your opinion. :D

11. Optimus kills the Fallen.

That's the simple version, so it should be easy for even you to read. :roll:


can you please identify where mr gaga said there was no plot in rotf. Well i can say it for you, he didnt. You just used what he said to launch another man-bay-love rant.

yes there was a plot to rotf, the fact it was written by what seems to be a ridelin addled ADD 7 yar old is neither here nor there


Your opinion is not fact, sorry. If you had trouble following such a simple plot I really feel sorry for you. Also, if someone was "ritalin addled" they'd be slowed down to the degree of a drooling simpleton. If you're going to toss canned insults at the film at least research some basic knowledge of plot structure and the mental disorders you wish to use as insults, please.

Now if you don't mind, since this thread has become little more than insults toward me and canned, uneducated complaints about something that's been talked to death I'll bow out of this discussion.

No the difference is you chose to ignore that there was a plot due to your dislike of the film. If you honestly believe it had no plot then you have a very slim grasp on how storytelling works.

As for your Bladerunner comment, I've read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. I wasn't impressed.

Let me bulletpoint it for you:

1. Sam absorbs cube knowledge.
2. Decepticons go after Sam.
3. Optimus dies protecting Sam.
4. Sam seeks out Simons for info on the symbols and how to read them.
5. They learn of Transformers hiding on Earth for centuries.
6. Wheelie says these Transformers can read Ancient Cybertronian, points them to Jetfire.
7. Jetfire translates the symbols, sets Sam and co. on their mission.
8. Simons calls Lennox while they search for the doorway.
9. They find the doorway and the Tomb of the Primes.
8. Sam and co. make their way to Lennox as the final battle is joined.
9. Sam dies, meets the Primes, and is ressurected with the Matrix.
10. Sam revives Optimus.
11. Optimus kills the Fallen.

I reserve my right to be inconsistant with people who are inconsistant to begin with. 8)

Now, let go of this issue before you make me start another thread about plot structure. I don't want to give Burn a bigger migraine than I already probably do.

Yeah alright, this is the last chance for you lot. You all seem to have a habit of going from thread to thread and derailing it with your petty little flame wars.

I mean really, Cyber Bishop has already stepped in and told you lot to cool it and you ignore him.

From now on, it's warnings issued.

Now unless you have something to contribute to the original topic of this thread, leave it alone.
