The second movie was a bit incomprehensible, but the first and third are are fine. Could a Transformers movie be made that deals with important issues and has a deep plot with great acting? Probably. It could have been District 9 with Transformers instead of prawn. But the world needs lighthearted fun too, so I'm perfectly OK with what we got.
Oddly enough, after spending some time doing some photoshoping some of the pics from all three movies, i'm starting to give and have this point of view of the whole thing, rather than the nerd-ragin G1 fanboy I have been these last couple of days.
The fact is, there is alot, ALOT of Transformer media out there for various audiences, so it is what it is. I just want to enjoy all the perks of being a long time TF fan while its in the spotlight and there is Transformer posters all over the place and tons of Transformer toys at my local Walmart.
Karellan, thank you. I love your point of view.
