But I found that Hound had a lot more screen time, almost matching Bumblebee's. I think they will severely hurt Bumblebee, but he is now everyones favorite. I was walking down the street, saw a camaro, and 3 people doing different things said "look Bumblebee." SOmeone I know who saw the first movie loves…… Bumblebee. The character is generally known so as much as some fans don't want him, some want more of him :grin: :michaelbay: :BOT: :BOT:


Crosshairs gives me heartburn. But,I will admit he did more then Bumblebee did. :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS: :DANCE: :DANCE:

I actually kinda like Crosshairs. He's by far a much better character than Bumblebee ever was/will be.

Exactly.

Might need some time to adjust to his new form.

Originally, back when the first movie came out, the back story was that they were brothers. The DS game even mentions that Megatron had killed Sentinel Prime, who was his and Optimus Prime's father.

But since the movies do not care about the previously established back-story they chose to leave out of the movies and instead show in the comics, that has now changed.

See, this is the problem with Ehren Kruger. He keeps making self-contradictory storylines. I wish Bay would fire him.

Can Bay fire the writer? Wouldn't he have to inform the producers? Plus looking back I prefer them not to be blood brothers, so I'm happy about that change, just not the fact it can't keep the backstory straight.

That original back story was contradicted in ROTF, which was written by Kurtzman & Orci and Bay, the same team responsible for the original back story in the first place. Kruger was brought on board with DOTM. So I don't see how it's his fault.

He helped, the main writers were still Kurtzman and Orci, and as director Bay had the final word on everything.
Kruger became main writer with DOTM, you can blame him for what happened since DOTM, not for stuff that happened before.

Next time, switch on your brain before running your mouth. ;)

Did anyone notice that sidewise gets shot by sentinel but doesn't dust DOTM final battle before Sentinal transforms and goes to the bridge where optimus attacks him.

Do you come from a broken home? You have a habit of awkwardly trying to change the subject whenever conflict arises.

It's safe to assume that I'm just taking the piss.

I actually liked DOTM. It's ROTF that I'm not a big fan of.

Then what's the big fuss about? Kruger is responsible for the only sequel to date that does not completely contradict the previous movies, so where does all that "Kruger can only write contradictory stories" bs come from?

In that case wouldn't it be best for you to change the name of this thread or start a new thread called Movie Questions. That way you can ask all the questions you want and it can never be considered to be off-topic :)
