I wish this is the last and final movie from this horrible series. Michael Bay just stop. But we all know that will never happen
Such comments can only come from 30+ year old fan boys stuck in the past who think the Transformers franchise revolves around them. The movies updated the franchise for and created a new generation of fans, greatly increasing its public mindshare than ever before. Transformers has taken on many incarnations after G1, just because G1 was the first doesn't make it the best and only legit series. In fact, most G1 episodes were dumb, illogical, incoherent stories.
The movies may consistently get flak for being "bad movies", but they are the best thing to happen to the Transformers franchise.
First of all, I'm 26, and I think the movies are, all else being equal, awful.
Second, I don't have be a geewuner to think that. There are plenty of modern incarnations of Transformers I love. But Michael Bay is a bad, incoherent director who makes bad, incoherent movies.
Third, haters gonna hate. Best not to take it personally. Did I mention the movies were bad?
Fourth, yes, the movies are the best thing to happen to the franchise. The money earned from the movies drives cash to media and toys I do like, so I can live with it.
@Tarzen I too am 24, although I have been hanging out with many 30+ Transformer fans so it must have brushed on me.
The problem I find with the Bay movies is that they deviate from what makes Transformers what they are. As Megatronus said, there are numerous incarnations that trump the Bayverse. Transformers Prime and Animated are both prime examples that allude to the TF lore while delivering a new franchise. I fully agree that if it wasn't for the 2007 movies we would not be where we are today. Hands down there have been some great things. I can't sit down and watch G1 with a straight face, I can't. I watched the Besties growing up. But what came out of G1 injected new ideas that kids got hooked on and inspired one another. G1 gave us combiners, a level of transformers we never thought could happen. It must have been awesome witnessing Devastator's first appearance. The movies don't give us that. They thrust us into action without any reason or character development, especially the Decepticons. The writing was rushed and bland. Ironhide didn't even get a funeral. If it wasn't for the amazing effects of ILM the movies wouldn't have made the $2.3 billion. I see it as a demo reel for Michael Bay that happened to use the name Transformers.
TLDR : Transformers as movies had the potential to be more than what was delivered, I think that's the grievance with the fans.

If any of you Bay-haters can actually stay away from the movie, then more power to you. If not, I hope you sit somewhere else.
MULTIPLE TIMES. BRING ON THE BAY-SPLOSIONS!!!!

This movies gonna suck. I can feel it already. Of course there will be cool eye candy as that is the only thing Bay is good for, but as far as plot goes......

Because dragons kick ass. Ever play Skyrim?
Besides, they changed Optimus Prime into a long-nose semi in the first film. I don't remember the world actually coming to an actual end.
shockblast2 wrote:Furthermore, how tall is Grimlock going to be? He must be as tall as Omega Supreme with him large enough to dwarf Optimus while riding on his back.
Whatever dude. If you can't find joy in giant robots riding giant robot dinosaurs, go watch Les Miserables.

Hey, at least we get to watch giant robots riding giant robot dinosaurs on the big screen. Who needs plot?

Well, presumably, Megatron is dead. It was said, somewhere, that we'd see Galvatron, but who knows? Too early to tell.

Grimlock looks cool, but how does a green dinosaur in the movie translate to a bronze and gray toy?

People also tend to not spend a ton of money on something really crappy. I didn't like Titanic. However, based on the box office success, I would have to grudgingly say that it was a decent movie to be so popular.
How does one define good or great in this sense? We could look at critics, but it is actually rare for a critical success to do very well at the box office or a box office smash do very well with critics. (Though this does seem to be a reversing trend of late.)
If we look at popularity, I.E. something people actually like, then I think it could be argued that $2.6 billion indicates something good.
(Disclaimer: I actually really liked Pacific Rim, so take all of this with a grain of salt. )
I think to put it all a lot more acurately is that only YOU can decide what is good or not. If you think the TF movies are amazing, thats simply what you think, with the opposite also being true. But something is not defined as good simply because others deem it so. Decide for yourself, and stop hating on those who oppose your views about something like a movie.
That was actually my point all along. I'm not hating on anyone's views. They should have their own opinions (and others should express theirs as well) and maybe the differing perspectives can add to the debate or even convince others to change their mind. It happens rarely, but has even happened to me.
I just argued the reasoning and logic of such a statement, especially when considering how vitriolic the discussions seem to get in reference to the Bay movies. (I actually find it entertaining, in a way, to see people get so passionate about this hobby. It's why I come here so much. )
If we go by the premises that something popular gets a lot of money, and that people will not go see something bad (hence why it is popular), then the prevailing opinion of the populace is that something that generates a lot of money is, overall, good.
A better statement would be, "Just because something generates $2.6 billion doesn't mean I have to like it."
And I think this is on topic. Does this movie look good for people personally? That's up to the individual. Will this movie make a lot of money? Based on what is in the trailers and how well the other movies have done, unless there is a public fatigue setting in about the Transformers, then this movie will probably generate in the 8 figure range.
Personally, I will look forward to this movie more than any of the Oscar Best Picture nominees from this year, even if it's not what I would expect for my G1 inner child.
(P.S. Megatronus knows me well from other interactions. I would hope he recognizes that I'm not deliberately hating on his opinion or trolling him. )
