I learned that America is becoming more and more like the society depicted in Idiocracy.

I agree, the things I've heard people complain about makes me wonder if they're capable of paying attention.

I think one time, maybe. I may have started it with "I agree with you" but then went off on how they were wrong.

That said, saying people who don't like the movies are a sign that we're headed towards a massive outbreak of mental ****** doesn't make your side of things look any better.

He was implying people who like the movies are stupid, I was sarcastically pointing out that stupidity is on both sides.

Poe's Law strikes again. Sarcasm doesn't translate well into text. I thought you were talking about people who complained about the movies. You could have made it a bit more obvious you didn't actually agree with him.

Moral of the story is: Guy learned from what mistakes he made, made a few new ones along the way, Learned alot about his experience, and moved on, but if he decides to return, then more power to him for making a comeback! Honestly, With all he's learned, TF 4 by Michael Bay could be a good thing. DOTM Was not Flawless! Anything but! But with it's setbacks, it definantly opened up a new realm for Transformers in general! TF4 has so much to build on now because of bay. Three movies. all of them made so much money too! I think, that we, as the TF Fandom, owe him a dept of graditude for bringing this, dead thing, back to life, kicking and screaming and pulling in the dough! He's a director. He's hollywood. you want what is in your mind, a flawless transformers movie? Make it yourself! See how it stacks up. I await the final cut. Hell, if it looks good enough, I may go see it in theaters, like I did the first three transformers movies.


TF 1 was NOT like G1 at all. The Autobots don't even show up until the end of the movie. ROTF was more like G1 than anything.


Honestly dude, I do you get so defensive and mean towards others. Saying TF1 was not like G! at ALL is the biggest proof of denial I've ever heard in these films.

It really is. The presence of any Transformers in the 2007 movie instantly makes it like G1, wherein Transformers were present.
Aside from that, maybe there aren't any similarities. Afterall, the Autobots show up to save humans from the Decepticons as Megatron is trying to get his hands on the game changing item that will decidedly win the war for the Decepticons.
I mean, hell, there were no G1 episodes like that.
