Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
Does it really matter whether they revisit old locations or not? So long as they don't show old footage or a mirror image of a previous shot.

As for Bay sticking around after 4, yeah it wouldn't surprise me, but I think it would kill my interest in any and all future Transformers movies. Yes, there are some awesome moments in these movies but I can't shake the feeling that they're nothing but a big joke to the guy.

If the next trilogy sticks to the same formulas as the first three then I'm sure Hasbro, Micheal, Paramount and Dreamworks will all make a lot of money but mine won't be among it.

His commentaries in TF1 and ROTF seem to support that, although I think he's learned to "behave" a little better after ROTF. DOTM feels like a much more "mature" movie compared to the earlier two. I admit there are still visible amounts of his trademark douchebag government agents, clinically insane comic relief characters, and military showcasing...but less of it, and noticeably toned down.

Like I've said in another thread, it's a small step in the right direction.
